face.

this weekend my grandma came into town and last night she came over for dinner, we had curry and pumpkin pie.. mmmm.. with homemade whipped cream too....it was HILARIOUS to watch her talk about how she plans out her finances every month, because LITERALLY i do the exact same thing, the exact same way! and its not like anyone taught me to do it, it must be genetic... and to see how excited she got about the organization of it, i could feel it, cause i get that excited too. she has all these systems to what she does, and i didn't know that, but when she was talking about it last night seth and i were just like 'woa, that's where skylana came from'. she is so precious, i'd love to be like her when i'm old... only super glam. her and arabella are the cutest too, she sings all the old nursery rymes and stuff to her and she loves it, except when my grandma sang humpty dumpty and said 'humpty dumpty had a great fall..' ara yelled 'OHHH NOO!'.. then we were outside and my grandma was talking about teaching her all those little songs and she said 'grandma's gotta be good for something right?' and ara just shook her head and was like 'no.' haha... but whenever we've seen her ara just sings about her all the next day 'mama gamma, mamamamaaaa gammma!' (saying mama's grandma, so i know who she's talking about) ... and my grandma was like 'grandma's gotta be good for something right?' and ara just shook her head and was like 'no.'

anyway my grandma is seriously the cutest thing you ever saw, she's 4'8" and she sounds like piglet when she talks... i'll have to post a picture of her sometime...


so today...

seth did some work for a local spa called 'san luis obiSPA' (which if you know my husband, you know that is like his favorite name for a spa... oh man) and they offered me a free facial...

i went this morning.

it was seriously, AMAZING.
i think you moms out there will know what i'm talking about when i say i can't even remember the last time i got touched when it wasn't sexual or romantic and it wasn't by tiny grubby hands... not that i dont love those touches too... . ha... this probably sounds real bad, but oh well... i'm sure there are some ladies out there who know what i mean.

anyway, it was just indescribable to get my hands and feet and scalp massaged, and she even threw in some free Microdermabrasion, which was awesome.

and the best part, they do tons of crazy stuff there, like whole body exfoliation and wraps... and she said to talk to my husband about settin up some more trades for whatever i wanted cause she needs website stuff done.... hopefully this will work in my favor. i could really use a 'never going to be pregnant again celebration body wrap' after nola arrives...

glad you were able to be pampered

Totally know what you mean. The non-sexual but caring touch of a masseuse or facialist is like nothing else. Whenever I can justify it it's the ultimate relaxation/grounding exercise. Hope more of those come your way!
