The Best Kind of Day

Yesterday, I got to experience one of my favorite activities. As I look back on it, it was my idea of the perfect day! First, two of my best friends and I made our annual trek to the spa. Over the years, we've figured out that our holidays are better spent together at the spa rather than spending hours shopping for gifts for one another at the mall. It has become one of the absolute highlights of my year. As with a few years past, we gathered at the Oasis Salon and Spa in Woodinville for facials and massages. It was completely relaxing and absolutely what I needed. After spending the morning in the spa, we enjoyed lunch together complete with conversation and laughter. I still have a smile on my face from spending time with great friends -- this is definitely my favorite activity all year!

After completing some Christmas shopping on my own (what was I thinking -- going to 'big box stores' on a Saturday in December!?!), I returned home and got to spend the evening with my husband. We ran some errands before venturing to the theater to see The Muppets on the big screen. It's been quite some time since we went to a movie theater, so this was quite the treat. The movie had us laughing and giggling the whole time, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.

Any mention of the Muppets takes me back to my childhood, when I used to watch the Muppet Show with my father every week; I'd anticipate the next show with great excitement. Kermit and his friends always made me laugh, and I continue to be a fan to this day.

Spas. Movies. Good times with great friends. An evening with my husband. These are the ingredients to the best kind of day in my book! :)

Oh sounds like you had a wonder per Christmas. I am going to remember the whole treat-yourself-to-the-spa thing.
