|So grateful for this tub. It's my escape from reality!|

Then it was onto spa treatment #2...what I like to call my "Deluxe Signature Frozen Spoon Facial." If you have never done one, it is the cadillac of at home facials. After you've steamed and cleansed your face in the shower, apply your favorite face mask. Then, take two spoons that have gotten ice cold in the freezer (or a cup of ice water) and apply them to your eyelids upside down. It magically cures puffy eyes and feels sooooo nice. You can actually do this anytime your eyes look tired and it will reduce puffiness and wake you up a little....

Speaking of sprucing things up, I also did a little kitchen window makeover this week to liven up our kitchen, which is where I spend about 80% of my time while at home. This is sad and pitiful and almost embarrassing to post, but this was my kitchen window BEFORE:
|SO tired of looking at the neighbors' brick and weeds!!!|
Ever since they built the house next door to us, I have been complaining about the fact that my view is basically the side of the neighbors' house and the weeds that they never pick in their side yard even at 2 feet high. I finally decided to do something about it! I found some great ceramic pottery at Hobby Lobby and some cute little plants and flowers at Lowe's. Here is the AFTER:
|Ta dah! Much happier place to be now!|
Of course, the day after I did this, my kitchen sink became clogged from either extraneous dirt, orange peels, or God knows what, and I am now stuck with a non-functioning sink until the plumber gets here on Monday. Plus, my dishwasher was completely full when it happened (OF COURSE!), so I can't even cook now either, because there is nowhere to put dirty dishes. Doh! I thought about going all Honey Boo Boo and starting to do my dishes in the yard, but decided against it.
Oh well, I guess it just means we'll have to eat out and have someone bring our food to us, clean up our plates, and do dishes for us all weekend long now. Gosh, I just hate it when that happens! ;) I know things are about to get a little crazy with all the IVF meds and procedures starting soon, so I'm taking some time out to enjoy the calm before the storm.
What do you do to make yourself feel special or keep the mood full of love and light?
