good morning, friends!
happy cinco de mayo!!!
i’m not celebrating today, but brad and i did have an early celebration last night with some mexican food & margaritas!
two pitchers between 3 people was probably not the best idea though.
let’s rewind a bit.
yesterday afternoon i had a little impromptu pampering session.
the place that brad & i go to get our hair cut was having an anniversary special with half off a bunch of their services including shellac manicures and massages, so i took full advantage of the deals.
i got a one hour full body massage, which was glorious (check off another 101 in 1001 item!).
and a shellac manicure, which was ok.
(they didn’t have many nail polish colors to choose from, which was kind of a bummer…).
it was a perfect couple hours of relaxation that i have not enjoyed in quite a while!
however, when i was getting ready for my massage, i had some moments of doubt and nervousness. it had been almost 4 years since i got a professional massage, and i was feeling very self conscious of my body. i was feeling very gross and not confident at all.
but, i gave myself a little pep talk – seriously, massage therapists are professionals and they see every body type imaginable. i’m sure i’m nothing out of the ordinary for them, right?
plus, my body is nothing to be ashamed of. is it where i want it to be? no. but is it still pretty great? yes of course! it proved itself to me just last weekend running crazylegs.
anyway, i’m glad i got over that stupid moment of insecurity because i felt awesome all evening after that massage.
i am not letting another 4 years go by before i get another one!
i hope you all have fun plans for this saturday. i’ve got a career day even from 8:30 this morning until 5 this afternoon. but tonight we’ve got some fun plans, so i guess that kind of makes up for it.
