Will gladly give up two manicures and pedicures for ...

... a monthly in-home massage.

WOW, I can't say enough about my wonderful in-home massage last week. It was pure indulgence and such a splurge but worth every penny. I have always been a big fan of massages. Before DS I was able to indulge often but now that I am always running around with a Toddler attached to my leg it has become more difficult to find the time (& money) to drive to a spa, have an hour massage and drive home while having someone watch DS. Crazy thing is that I need them more then ever. My back is always hurting from running after and carrying a 24 pound boy.

I found the answer ... an in-home massage. She brings the table, the music and candles to you!!! Not only was it convenient but it was the best massage I have ever had. It did wonders for my mind and physical well being. If you are local (in Orange County, CA) you should check out her MySpace page at BacknBusiness. If you click on Spa @ Home under her Blog you will see a list of her services and prices. She also does Spa @ work and Spa parties ... how wonderful would that be?! She used to work at Spa Gregories in Fashion Island and The Body Centre, two places I have been to several times.

For those of you that do not live in Orange County but want to pamper yourself at home you can try www.gomassage.net. Mommy friend MS told me about this site. Her and her hubby have used them several times and have been very pleased. They are available in many areas through out the U.S. Click here to see if they are available in your area.

With Mother's Day just around the corner I can't think of a better gift to give to an over-tired, over-stressed Mommy!!!

By the way, I couldn't talk DH into a monthly massage but I was able to get him to agree to one every 6 weeks after he saw how happy I was. I slept better that night and felt so refreshed the next day.

Years ago we all used to go to "the spa" for the day. That was a luxury. As much as getting massages is still a luxury it has become essential for my well being. It is a stress reliever and energies me. I go (or atleast try) ever 4 weeks. It makes me a better mom and wife!
