Time to Relax a Bit

I submitted my last grades early this morning, and it’s time to relax a bit (before seriously getting to work on my Winter classes next week).


I was lucky to win another giveaway, and it’s perfect for some relaxation. I won MizFit’s Oikos/Spa giveaway. I received some coupons for free Oikos yogurt, which I LOVE, a spatula & recipes, a reusable bag, & spa goodies. Here is what was included in the spa goodies: Loofah Massage Sponge, Anti-Stress Massage Soap, Bumpy Bristle Massage Brush, Anti-Stress Massage Lotion, and Soothing Beauty Mask.



The box the goodies came in is HUGE and was promptly converted into the toddler’s “house.”





I plan on a “spa evening” tonight after the toddler goes to bed. There might even be some wine or champagne involved… Thank you MizFit & Oikos for helping me to relax!


Questions: What is your favorite way to relax? When was the last time you relaxed a bit? Don’t forget to make some time for yourself! What are you up to this weekend? I am meeting a good friend for our annual holiday tea tomorrow. We have been doing this for close to 15 years. I am looking forward to some fun. I also still have to do some shopping. Finally, while I’m not much of a baker, I think I may attempt to bake something… We’ll see…


Be well,

Andrea

  2. One of my favourite ways to relax is with a big cup of coffee on a Saturday morning catching up with all my blogs! Oh look at that: that's what I'm doing right now. :)

  3. I got the same prize from another blog, and I'm using it to my advantage :) I think some wine and/or champagne is a great addition to that spa package! I just can't wait to get a nice bathtub that I'm not afraid to get into (our apartment is old and the tub scares me..) because I will take advantage and take baths OFTEN!! Seriously, maybe even everyday.

    This weekend will be full of errands and eating out. I'm about to go to lunch with some friends, then dinner with Nick and my mom tonight.

    Enjoy your relaxing evening Andrea!

  7. That so cute when your toddler turned the box into his house. I remember doing something like that when I was young. It was wither a box or a house of pillows. hehehe...

    The last I relaxed was several months ago when I took a trip to Santa Barbara. It was a much needed rest. Since them it's been busy, busy, busy. Hopefully when Christmas arrives it will be quiet on the waterfront again. But I do love to listen to music to calm me down. I'll try to get away and watch some movies "when" I can.

  9. I am working on relaxing more so I can not be as worked up all the time. I live on an island away from civilization so I should be relaxed. I just feel like I need to keep working to put myself ahead in case something happens or something. But I have a nice 2 weeks off coming up.
