Dream With Me (and then I'll be mean and go live it without you)

Today I will spend most of my day at the spa. Wait. Did I just say that? Is this a dream? Where am I? Who am I? How is this possible? Where are my children?

You see, I cannot believe it. I wouldn't imagine that my pipe dream of a day at the spa would come true at this point in my life. (I'm just too cheap, and if we had extra spending money I don't know if I could bring myself to use it on a whole day at the spa, even if I totally deserve it.) But you see, I have this generous and thoughtful Auntie K. She gifted myself and a friend with a day at the spa! SHUT UP, you say? I know! That rocks the party.

I'm a wee bit more than excited. I plan to look like an entirely new person at the end of today. Or at least sort of. Maybe just less frumptified, dingy and droopy. Maybe. I can hope?

Let's say that you were gifted a day at the spa. Let's say the gift card was for a large enough amount that you and your friend could choose a few things each from the spa menu. Okay, so picture yourself there. Massage? Pedicure? Facial? Hair cut? Color? Manicure? Brazilian? :)
What must-do two things would you FOR SURE choose. For free. On your Auntie K...
Or is it just mean to make you think about this?

I'll take one teeth whitening and a nose job. Oh wait, you didn't say extreme make-over did you?

In that case a pedi-mani will do, with a "chicken dinner" on the side. I honestly have not had a pedicure in over a year. I'm so cheap. Ugh...

Eowyn said...

Pedi and hair-cut. The pedi will make you feel uber cute and the hair-cut will help you feel like a new woman!

happygeek said...

Mmmm Spa.
Hot stone massage and a facial.
Those are things I've always wanted to try.

JustRandi said...

Pedi and massage. Definitely!

Enjoy your day, you really do deserve it!!

Kristina P. said...

I'm getting a massage tomorrow! For my birthday in May, Adam got me a certificate for 3 items. If you haven't had a hot stone massage, you must do so now.

Oh, and I once posted a poll on my blog if people have their gluteus maximus rubbed, and are fully naked while getting a full body. My brother said he leaves his garment botton on! Weird.

And Kelly up there, needs a pedicure ASAP!

a Tonggu Momma said...

A massage, definitely.

And probably a pedicure if I could get over my Extreme Aversion to people touching my feet. The practical side of me would quite probably win, however since a pedi lasts longer than a manicure.

Have a wonderful, peace-filled day! Your aunt is amazing!

Sabrina said...

I had a brazillian already so that is out... Once is enough. eeek!
I would say massage and haircut.

MidnightCafe said...

Massage & facial for sure!! Enjoy your spa day!

Becky said...

I need a haircut in a bad, bad way. And I'd probably go for the facial as well.

Hope you have a great time!

Peanut said...

Have a great day at the spa! You deserve it :)
I would love a hot stone massage, a facial, and a haircut. Ok, and a pedicure... it's been awhile. Oh, and maybe eyebrow waxing. I'm pretty sure these eyebrows have lost their symmetry. And if it was free, well I'd have to try something that claims to get rid of cellulite. Hey, this is a dream, right? It works in my dream!

Abra said...

I would go for a pedicure and a massage... yup... a hot stone massage.

Kelly @ Love Well said...

I've been dreaming of a massage for WEEKS now. Can't wait to hear about your day. My sore muscles will live vicariously through you.

Billi said...

Spa, how is it that you all know so much about spa packages. I guess I’m from the if you haven’t had it you won’t know what your missing crowd...Okay so that was a lame attempt at ignorance so that I wouldn’t be forced into thinking about all the possibilities and not getting to participate in any of them. JK I’d take a full body rock message and a pedicure then thoroughly enjoy every moment of each.

April said...

lol massage and facial... ahhhhhhh even the thought feels good.

Bonnie Lewis said...

oh my goodnesss!!! that is wonderful!! Aunite K is your new hero.

enjoy and please fill us in on what you got!!

i would get (not holding back at all): sport massage
facial!

Jessica said...

I need a serious haircut by someone who doesn't work at the mall! that's all. and to lay all day reading magazines listening to nature music.

Melanie J said...

Okay, there's no way that relaxing day at the spa and Brazilian fit in the same peaceful daydream. So definitely go full body massage and pedicure. Mmmmm....bliss! Enjoy!

MommyTime said...

Haircut (lasts the longest) and massage or facial. Both of the latter are incredibly relaxing. I get just as much as I need from the cheap pedicures in the massage chairs at the local nail salon, so I wouldn't opt for that since it's something I will occasionally treat myself to. What a happy problem to have to make such a choice!

PsychMamma said...

Massage and pedicure.

I'm dreaming happy dreams of relaxing at a spa right now......Ohm

Enjoy!

charrette said...

This is easy! A 90-minute deep tissue massage and a body wrap! (Can you tell I've done this before?) :)

A couple of times my BFF's hubby gave her TWO massage gift certificates -- one for her and one for me! It was trés fabulous! He is pure gold!


Ummm...what do I have to do to get your Auntie K to adopt me???

Jenny said...

Do I have to pick only 2? I can't do it. Facial and Massage, I think.

A pedi would be nice too...

Can't wait to hear about your day!

BaronessBlack said...

Oh Oh - I know! How about a full leg wax (inc. bikini line) and a massage, or a facial? Either way, it should be something that you can't do yourself. The wax itself isn't so relaxing at the time - but then you have 8 weeks of knowing that when you bare your legs, they look fantastic, with no shaving cuts or missed bits! Manicures and pedicures are great, but more easily available, and at a push (if you ever have time!)you can do them yourself. So I would say choose something that a). will last, and b). you can't do yourself! Auntie K rocks!

MoziEsmé said...

Just make me drool!

I did a mini spa thing back in May and had to pick 3 things - which ended up being a facial, body wrap, and massage. The facial was fantastic! The massage was good. I'd skip the body wrap next time. Unless I had forever and money was no issue, of course.

I have never had any of the above, but I think I would do...a massage and a pedicure. You blessed girl, you!
