My Spa Saturday
John has taekwondo on Saturdays til about 2 or 3pm, so what I did was put a 4lb chicken in the crock pot and made a lemon chicken roaster (recipe to come this week...I even took photos this time!) It was seasoned and ready to go at 8:45 am, and had a good 8-10 hours roasting and filling my home with yummy smells all day. I also made some white rice and took out the corn John would need to heat up. I did this so that dinner would be easy and delicious and one less thing for him to worry about.
At 3:20 pm I left the house for my appt. The first appt you have to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. I had a green tea as I waited. Emily was my massage therapist and she was kind and friendly. Most times when I get massages I feel like I have to talk to the therapist the whole time, but this time I just laid there and relaxed and it was really great. Did you know that 1 hour of massage gives your body 6 hours of rest! That was great because I only had 4 hours of sleep the night before (Mark is teething, poor guy).
After my massage, it was 5pm, and I was dressed and ready to go home, John texted me (Honey, we are all fine here, why don't you get waxed, and get a manicure/pedicure, too!) Seriously, he spoils me! I get my eyebrows done about every 2-3 weeks, but right next to Massage Envy in East Brunswick, is a European Wax Center, my sister Sara gave me a coupon for a free wax for your first visit. She highly recommended the underarm wax (I was so scared). I figured I have a high tolerance for pain and it's free, so why not...and so I went in and it was so nice inside. Very professional and clean and bright...much nicer than any of the salons I go to near me. I got waxed and it did hurt a little but overall it was well worth it. Quick and easy.
Then I drove closer to home and took John up on the pedicure offer. I haven't had one since November! I picked a light shade of pink and sat back and relaxed...it was heavenly. Knowing my kids were with their daddy, and had a good meal, made me feel comfortable too.
So that was my Spa Weekend. I skipped the manicure, because that would have taken longer and by that point I just wanted to be home. I arrived at home around 7pm, kids were fed and had pjs on, and John had dinner ready for me. He even made corn bread! My fav.
