Queen for a Day

Saturday is Spa Day!!

At least once a year Alex, BJ and I get together and pamper ourselves with a Spa Day. As I mentioned before, the girls were getting a little anxious to go. We usually have Spa Day in the Summer to celebrate our birthdays together, but this year they just couldn't wait. Like I'm going to argue! Pfff! Any excuse for Spa Day!!

This year, we're going to the Nouvelle Maria Spa at the King Edward Hotel. We've been before, but this is a particular favourite of mine. We're booked for an hour and a half massage, reflexology, facials, manicures and pedicures.

I'm especially looking forward to the facial. Not just because I desperately need one right now, but because of the previous experience. If you've never had a facial, there's a point where the esthetician sets a steamer over your face to open up your pores. She usually leaves you in the dark for a while to relax with cool compresses on your eyes. Last time, someone quietly came into the room, gently folded back the sheet and massaged my just-pedicured feet for a blissful 15 minutes.

I'm pretty sure I drooled a little.

I will be lucky if I can just get someone around here to pull on my hair for a few minutes...I need some spa too. ;)

Can I get in on that action? Just the facial - I don't need the other stuff.

I am so jealous of the steam facial/foot rub paragraph that I can actually see myself turning green.
