This Saturday, I will be heading to the River Rock for a Night Out with five dear friends. It's the first time EVER that I've decided to stay out with friends for an entire night out (since having children that is!).
But what's so important about the experience is that it is a chance to reconnect with friends, have some fun and a chance to remind myself that I am more than just a mom - I'm also me.
Our “Ladies First” package at the River Rock over the weekend was a dream come true.
We were pampered beyond our wildest dreams.
Our afternoon started out at the Absolute Spa where my mom and I received the Royal Treatment with both manicures and pedicures.
The team at the Absolute Spa made it a day to remember. My spa technician, Jillian, was incredible and I could feel my cares melt aware as she massaged my legs. Who knew moms carried so much stress in our legs?.....
So tonight I am heading to the River Rock Casino in Richmond with my mom to take advantage of the "Ladies First" Package.
It's going to be an amazing night and can't wait! It includes two mani-pedis, appy and two drinks, one night stay and a buffet breakfast for two!
My mom has been away for the past month in Hawaii, so it will be nice to have some one on one time with her and catch up....
With preparations for Christmas well underway, I feel as though this year is the first year I've finally got it right.
I started buying gifts at the beginning of November and had the house decorated both inside and out by the first week of December.
I've made donations through my company - the Enterprising Moms Network annaul Xmas & Silent Auction for the Ronald McDonald House, which raised more than $850, and my personal donations for the families that my son's school is supporting this year.
Usually, I am struggling with gift ideas, trying to figure out which charity to donate to, and driving myself crazy....
