Spa Day For Me Saturday

I have a heated/vibration foot spa that I've had for about 4 years (hubby gave it to me for Christmas back then). I've used it a total of 4 times until yesterday.

Hubby has been after me to take more time for me. Yesterday was the perfect time. The boys went down for a nap, hubby crashed in front of a football game and told me to lock the bathroom door.

I grabbed some green tea, some favorite magazines, a candle and had a few hours to myself. First I washed and massaged my head and hair. Then I gave myself a facial. Then I had a long hot soak in the garden tub with bubbles galore. Then I filled up my foot spa and put in some special foot soak. I then used my new Winter Candy Apple body cream and massaged my arms and legs. I had a wonderful foot soak and spa treatment on my feet. While my feet were being pampered I read my magazines, drank my wonderful tea and took in the aroma of the winter cranberry candle. Then I massaged my feet with my favorite foot rub and put on a pair of moisturizing socks.

Then I fixed my face, styled my hair and got dressed. I felt like a new woman. My hubby commented that was the first time the bathroom had smelled like me since we had the boys.He said I acted like a new woman. He said he was going to make sure I had time for me from now on. How sweet is that?

Do you find that you don't take time for yourself like you should? I have neglected myself for too long and Marva is back! My spa day was just what I needed!

Sounds wonderful! I totally neglect myself in this way. I am hinting for some new body lotion (above Dollar Store quality:) this Christimas; you know, the kind that leaves a lovely scent in your trail as you go about. It's been much too long.

It sounds heavenly!
Whatever luxury bath items I buy seem to end up in my daughter's bathtoom. I have to sneak in to "borrow" my own things, LOL!

I'm glad you were able to take some time for yourself Marva! I love to use my spa tub too and Winter Candy Apple is my favorite Bath and Bodyworks scent!
