The Prep Before the Pamper

Today I am going to the spa for the works!  The day is paid by a gift certificate I won at our schools Holiday Auction and my husband covering the rest.  I am very excited.  It's been almost two years since I have been to the spa for anything.  I resolved to do it more this year so what better time than January to start. 

Today I will be getting a 75 minute deluxe facial, a 60 minute massage, a 75 minute pedicure, and a 45 minute manicure.  A few of my girlfriends will also be there and we'll be lunching together.  Whoopie.  I feel relaxed just typing this. 

Before I could enjoy all this day has to offer, I had to prep last night for the pampering.  Most of you know what I'm talking about. 

Last night I shaved, I pre-pedicured my feet, slothed my skin with a body scrub, removed my nail polish, and gave myself a mini facial.  It was actually pretty relaxing, minus the boys fighting over the Toy Story toys.  It's not like we don't have a hundred or anything.  The fighting me reminded me of why I must go to the spa.  It's quiet there.

I got into my bed feeling ready for my spa day.  I also thought it was completely ridiculous how much time I spent just to prepare for someone doing the exact same thing tomorrow.  OK, not the exact same thing. I'm certain they will be much more meticulous.  It's just one of those things you have to do.  You don't go to the dentist without brushing your teeth or the gyno without trimming your hair.  It's just polite.  Right? 

Hopefully my hard work will be appreciated today.

Do you prep before you pamper?
