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!

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

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." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Summer Plan 2012

Is anyone else asking themselves what happened to the last 3 months?? (Maybe you're wondering what happened to the last 3 years or just the last 3 days... at any rate you know how I feel, mom.) Today was my kids' last day of school for the year. I'm sitting on the precipice of another summer. This was my first year of "freedom" - two kids in school full time. It felt good. But as predicted I packed every possible moment with housework, volunteering, writing, and working at my "real job" (ie. the one I actually get paid to do). And it makes me wonder, how will I ever scale back and just enjoy the lazy days of summer?? How can I embark on a summer of fun and adventure without feeling like I'm staring into the abyss? I've done an unofficial survey of other moms I know and there's a mix of emotions. Some are ecstatic to have kids at home this summer; others are dreading it. I have a funny feeling the first group isn't telling the whole tr
