Worked Out the Kinks...Literally!

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Awakened by my 6am alarm to prepare for a Girls Day Out with my SIL.

We tried for at least 2 years to get this going.
So I felt the tingles of excitement as the big day drew near.

Ate a blueberry bran muffin and some hot green tea to get going.
Kissed the sleepy husband goodbye and headed out the door...
Drove to Houston which took about an hour due to traffic.

Arrived at SIL's house to find my BIL feeding the dog prior to him leaving for work.

Once my SIL and I were geared for our Day of Relaxation & Pampering, we chatted about our feelings of having our first REAL spa day.

Of course, many people lavish in the ritual of pampering themselves. We have not indulged in this luxury until today.

Some of our fears included:
Where do we put our clothes?
Will our money be protected?
What if we have to pass gas?
Will we be comfortable "naked"?
I may fall asleep...
Will there be a huge, stoutly-built Hulk-like dude pouncing on my back? (my thought actually)

Because I am so honest and open, I must say...I mentioned the gas. She agreed though...LOL!

After visiting the Studio & Japanese Day Spa near the Galleria, I never felt better!
None of those fears came into fruition.

No. Not even the gas....

The young gentleman was slim, handsome, professional, and very polite.
I had the foot reflexology and hot stone massage.

Can you say, "Heaven!" ???

Ahhhhhh.....

The sounds of flowing waters, relaxing cinnamon and eucalyptus aroma filled the air as whispers of soft, subtle sounds of the ancient orient calmed the soul fulfilling the heart.
I sipped hot green tea and hydrated with cucumber-flavored water in this euphoric calm.

Yes. I shall return and receive the seaweed body wrap and the salt scrub another day.

A ritual?
You bet.

Let's just say as soon as my SIL is done, we have lunch and then I get my hair done, I plan to schedule my next visit right before summer vacation.

Should I invite the hubby?
Hmmm....

    Sounds FABULOUS. LOL, I love how you posted your "fears". I want to get a massage but the naked thing weirds me out a tad bit. I have a co-worker who treats herself every month sometimes twice a month but I am way too frugal for that but I may gather up the nerve for one. Hmm...maybe I can hint around to my hubby since my birthday is next month. Enjoy your FABULOUS day.

Blog 5 - Awesome Capital A Team Task

I have become a water fanatic!
When I awaken, water!
After breakfast, water!
During lunch, water!
After work, water!
An hour before bed, water!

Those intestines stay lubricated and celebrated!
My skin tone is improving and the cells are having a party.
Yes, that wet wonder has got me "all twisted in the game"!

Cheers!

What Can I Improve On Day by Day!...Hmmm!

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Improvements are what EVERYONE needs or we wouldn't be human.
emoticon
So, day by day...
....
....
Wait for it...
...
Wait for it...
...

Pacing and continuous water. Together actually... emoticon emoticon

Okay, I need to meditate on God's Word, too.
(Felt as if He spiritually tapped me on the shoulder and said,"And?..." while tapping His right foot with arms folded)
Told you all that I'm very visual!

A sense of humor...Narrow- minded people DO NOT READ!

Oh racehorse!

Sounds of a running water hose in the background...

That's the result of the water habit. emoticon

Urge slipping....slipping...uh...gotta go, again!

A queen must have her throne! emoticon

Yes, day by day.
One roll at a time...tissue isn't the worst issue.
But peeing is believing...LOL!
