Woo hoo! What a ride!

I had the most lovely experience today. Remember when I told you that Bry had gotten me a gift certificate for mother's day? Well, I used it today. I got a massage that was 1 1/2 hours long. Absolutely delightful. Then a pedicure. My first ever and now my toes are so cute and then a facial.

I have had a facial before and it did not even compare to this! This girl is fabulous. Not only does she do facials but waxing and eyelash extensions and she is really good at what she does. Should I go for a Brazilian?

I don't know that I am that gutsy but who knows. I found out that a friend of Bryan's gave him the suggestion for the gift certificate. Thank heavens! I think I will drop the hint that this is a good present for my birthday next month and then Christmas, Easter, Valentines....and a really good "I'm sorry" gift too.

I am not used to being this spoiled but I think I could get used to it. You know, I have been trying to lose a little weight since my surgery and I am going to use the eyelash extensions as my reward for getting to my desired weight. They looked so good in all the pictures of what she's done and they don't look fake or unreal. Ya know?

You see, I have a really hard time wearing mascara. It really irritates my eyes. I have one kind that works. It is the Mary Kay kind that has been discontinued. Of course. Anyway, I think it would be fun. I don't want to live life being afraid to try something new and different.

So that was my day. I think of a saying my sister has on her fridge when I think of today. This is what it says:

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO--what a ride!"

This is my new motto for life!

Good for you!! I've never had a real massage - I really want one. I do get pedicures a few times a year - I love them! They make my feet look so lovely and feminine. And I love your new moto girl .. go for it!!

I have a couple of friends who had eyelash extensions put on...They loved it, and it looked really good. They only wished it lasted longer than 3-4 weeks!

My ideal life would include getting a pedicure every week, sigh.

Glad you had a great day.
