It's my birthday, oh, yeah!

Today (yesterday now) I got my birthday gift from Dave. A two hour spa treatment at
En Vogue Day Spa and it was amazing. I am hooked, so now being the spoiled wife of a fabulously in love husband I now get to go once a month for the treatment of my choice. He got me the Body Coffee Pure Bliss treatment (near the bottom for the list in the link)
and I was a little bit afraid. I have never had a body wrap before and envisioned being wound up like a mummy.

My imagination needs to take a break! It was nothing like that. It was more like being tucked in nice and tight, like a cocoon, wrapped in a warm buttery embrace. Mmmmmm, I have a new happy place! Next up 'A Cranberries Christmas' special, oh yeeaaahh!

So now it is my birthday and after a whole week of gifts in the mail and this spa treatment I can hardly believe that he is taking me on this shopping trip to the States.....more on that later ;-)
I looooove him!

In other news....we got the piano tuned today by a family friend. Turns out it wasn't as bad as it sounded, yeehaww! However as that went on the kids colored all over their table and their arms and their clothes. I think the markers might have to disappear for a while till the kids have forgotten about coloring on anything non paper.


Tonight after having a yummy dinner of ribs, baked potato's, corn, fruit salad and angel food cake-with strawberries and cream at Great Gram and Grandpa's......we had a Wii party, kinda. My sister 'TT' stopped by and started playing, Bro and sis-in-law showed up and joined in. Tennis and bowling where the games of choice tonight. I think they had fun....as I sat here IM-ing. I pooped out on my own drop in party.
I, am offa here, need sleep for my big day. :)

Oh, that sounds wonderful! I've never been to a spa before and have always wanted to try it. Maybe I could give my husband a few hints for my next birthday!

Happy Birthday!!! A treatment a month for a whole year!! Now, that is a wonderful gift. And I too love the body wraps, you never know until you get one how heavenly they are. Hope your treats continue.

And a tune up just in time to start cranking out the Christmas Carols.

I hear you loud and clear on computer problems, ugh. shopping for a new one myself, and sadly it will still be a pc, i gave up macs 5 years ago as I couldn't afford to keep 2 and all my clients were PC addicts.
