Did Someone Say Spa Day?

Well moms, our day has come and gone. But that doesn't mean the fun has to end! Summer is on the way and I'm asking with love: do your feet need some attention? If you're anything like me, you've had your feet under wraps for months. And when I say under wraps, I'm talking slippers, socks, slipper socks, sneakers, and snow boots... weeks and months of snow boots. My poor neglected feet deserve to be soaked in a bubbling pool of soapy water, then massaged and buffed, to a supple sheen. They are begging for nails to be trimmed, filed, pruned, and polished until they look like little gems at the end of each toe.

Are your feet talking too? Or maybe it's time for your yearly facial. Pores are crying out to be cleaned!

Here's a listing of the best spas in Colorado by Gayot. Of course, we all have our favorite local spots too. I personally enjoy the Aveda Spa at Aspen Grove. When they ask if you want tea or water, the correct answer is always "tea." And always... did I say always, cause I mean always... arrive at least 20 minutes early so you can sit and sip in the blissfully serene waiting area.

Whether you go by yourself, with a girlfriend or mom, remember to take care of yourself! Do you have a spa you want to share? Leave a comment!

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)

The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!

Frisco's Wassail Days

I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees. Sleigh rides. Visits with Santa.
And it all starts with the Santa Dash for Cash - a 1K "fun run" in which all participants must wear Santa gear! The run is TOMORROW and when you register at you will receive a Frisco Santa shirt, a Santa hat and at the end of the run you will receive a stocking full of goodies including Wassail Cash (the official currency of Wassail Days that can be used at local restaurants and retailers) and a FREE pass for a ½ hour of tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill. What a deal!!

Wassail Days is going on all week long (Dec 3-11). Start a new tradition with this annual event that has something for everyone in your family! (And, if you can&#…
