diva for a day
The other night we were out to dinner with friends when Katie asked us, "If you could do anything in the world and get paid for it, what would you do?" I gave the cheesiest answer telling her I'm already doing it! I LOVE doing hair and I especially love that I can control my schedule and work a tiny bit without feeling like I'm being taken away from my daughter. I really am so blessed to be able to have my job be more of an outlet, you know? BUT.... I am officially changing my answer. If I could do anything in the world and get paid for it... I'd be a diva for a day, every day :) ha ha!
My sweet husband gave me a spa day for my birthday gift (way back in January) and I was ecstatic! I couldn't wait to cash in.... until I realized I am nursing my baby. How was I going to get away with spending all day at the spa? Better yet, how was a massage supposed to even feel good if I was full of milk? And how incredibly embarrassing would it be to leak milk everywhere? I wanted to cry thinking I'd have to wait a whole year (or whenever I stop nursing) to go be pampered, ha ha. Dramatic? Maybe, but I was a brand new mom... everything was dramatic then :) Luckily my body has adapted and I learned I could pump at the spa, so on Monday I got to go be a diva for the day! Eric picked out that specific package (so cute that he actually researched for my spa day!) and it was just perfect! It included a massage, facial, pedicure and lunch. Let me tell you... it was like heaven on earth! The spa is located in the most gorgeous part of town, surrounded by vibrant red rocks. And being pampered like that? AMAZING! And lunch was buffet style, need I say more? (What? A nursing momma needs her calories! Don't ask me what my excuse was before I was nursing....) Now I know what I want for my birthday every. year. And Christmas, and my birthday, and Valentines, and mother's day (since I'm totally included in the mom club now!), or if a complete stranger just wants to do something nice for me.... ha! I guess my point is, husband done good ;) So thank you for that, my love!
