There are many things that I love in this world. Chocolate ranks right up there at the top of my list, clearly, as does a romantic, feel good movie (preferably with a large buttered popcorn and a crisp soda with ice).
And I love my husband and five sons, of course.
But there is one thing that I absolutely LOVE, but have not indulged myself in as much as I would like to. Until now. Hopefully...oh hopefully!
I love being pampered. I love to have my toes and feet spoiled rotten by someone else. I love to have my weary bod professionally massaged, exfoliated, oiled, and heat wrapped. Pampered. At one with my chi. In my happy place.
And now I have the chance to get my chi on and become the pamper queen of Utah! Yes, Sego Lily Day Spa is offering a year's supply of renewal to the mind, body, and spirit of the person chosen to be the Sego Lily Blogger! I can't think of a better contest to win!
It only took me one visit to their web page to see that I have been missing out on something that I indeed as a mother of five sons NEED desperately!
Picture this... alarm rings at 5:30 a.m., run to gym class by 6 a.m., run home to make breakfast for five ravenous males with voracious appetites, run some of aforementioned males to school, run home to literally get in my daily outdoor run, run home, run hot water on weary body, run vacuum while bending over with aching back to pick up numerous Lego's, air soft pellets, candy wrappers and dirty socks, run to store, run home, run dishwasher, run water in boy's tub to scrub while on hands and knees to scour stains from boy's commode (I have a PhD in cleaning boy commodes), run over in mind daily to do list and realize time has run out before time to run my own hot and luxurious bath.
Yes, my stress runneth over!
Now, I LOVE ALL this running and I wouldn't have it any other way, BUT I would love to be able to add a run to Sego Lily for a few tranquil moments here and there to the list!
When I read on Sego Lily's spa menu, "Our Bath Rituals will provide a precious refuge from life's daily stressors. Relax and rejuvenate mind, body and spirit in gentle, healing waters.", the mantra, "Sego Lily take me away...", kept repeating over and over in my mind...the same mind that so desperately needs renewing.
The mind that just last week told her husband her 12 year old wasn't sick but just being a wimp when he wanted to miss school - then two seconds later watched him throw up all over. And the body that NEEDS to run 3-5 miles in order for that body's spirit to feel "relaxed"? Spa treatments or pounding the pavement? Hmm...
Yes, I believe it's clear from my life in the testosterone zone that I desperately NEED to win this contest and renew!
Ahh....just saying that phrase "renew mind, body, and spirit" takes me to that happy place. I do believe it should be the 11th commandment.
That little word renew is full of promise and glorious expectations. Especially when you're feeling like your mind, body, and spirit have nothing in common with that last part of the word - new. How my old mind, body, and spirit could use a year's worth of renewing!
Did you hear me? I said A YEAR'S WORTH of luxurious, relaxing, rejuvenating spa treatments! For me! And for you my peeps, a year's worth of drool inducing blog posts as you watch my mind, body, and spirit fully renew...amazingly without chocolate or chic flicks involved.
I believe Sego Lily can be as life saving to me as it was to the pioneers! Sego Lily save me too...PLEASE!
What do you think my peeps? Do you think I deserve to win this incredible contest and rejuvenate in all my pampered-ness?
