I was sent to the spa for a scrub and massage in the morning. It was very relaxing, but I must admit I was a little dissappointed by the spa. My last spa visit was at the St.Regis Resort and it was a pampering experience like NO OTHER. So, my point of reference is a little skewed. I couldn't help but feel like I was sitting on a lawn chair in the "tranquility room". In reality, it actually was a lawn chair, although made out of teak. The massage was fabulous, and I did leave relaxed, but it was not a place where I felt like I wanted to linger.
Then, I hit Nordstroms for a little retail therapy. I recently bought a pair of f'Uggs, and while they are not attractive they are fabulously warm and comfy. However, I am constantly tempted to wear them out in public, which is not helping this dowdy-momma image I'm trying to shake. So, I bought these obscenely expensive bad boys for everyday wear. My favorite shoe salesman Derek brought these out and said, "This ain't your momma's shoe". However, I can't bring myself to wear them yet. Some enabling is appreciated.
I came home to this! Pictures on the mantle from my 3 favorite people, listing off their favorite qualities about me. Quite possibly my favorite gift!
Then off to dinner with the family for some tasty prime rib, and yummy desserts. Mr. Boy is showing off his "crayon binoculars". Then, my brothers gave me two awesome gifts. One was the book Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, which I can't put down. The other was Emergency on DVD. Oh how I loved Jon Gage when I was little. Anyway, I'm having a blast watching these with the kids. They love them!
