Momma Kiss: Ahhhhhhh

Holy Hell did last week kick my ass. 


Whew, still catching my breath. 

Dinner with A was unbelievable, thanks y'all for the well wishes – which I passed along simply by saying "you have so many people behind you, you can't even imagine."  A's chemo is over, she has a couple of weeks until radiation starts. Dinner was delish.  Her and I are "running" a 5k on the 12th. Pray for us both!


On Saturday? I had myself a spa day. Mmmm hmmm. Finally was able to get an appointment with my favorite back bruiser.  Ana is a 50ish year old Russian woman who has magical hands. I honestly don't know if you say her name AH-na or ANN-na, but in my mind I refer to hear as Ahhhhhhhhhhna.


She's That Good.


I booked 90 minutes to give her enough time to properly bruise me. She does trigger point therapy first, and then the full body massage "for pleasure, naht pain." Her words. I can barely keep a straight face when she says it, but guess it doesn't matter as my head is all squished into that face-donut-circle-thingy.   


After the Massahhhhhhhhge, I drove to another salon for a facial. I bought one on Groupon and was glad they could get me in the same day – but to be honest? I'll never go back. It's like they rushed through things and I just had the feeling they were giving me subpar service because it was Groupon. Either that or they suck all the time.  Regardless, I won't go back. 

Aren't I a fickle little bitch like that?

I am, it's OK to share the sentiment. 

You may want to reconsider saying it to my face, though.  Sometime soon I'm doing a giveaway. That shit makes me happy. Here's a preview of her shop:

Oooooh....massage! [drool]

I don't blame you for not going back to the facial place. Subpar is subpar & that's not ok for something like a facial.

Ah, well. :)

I think a spa day was a good treat for yourself after getting over your sickness last week. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Subpar beauty treatments are not acceptable. But I like the sound if your massage. Nice!

Ooh, a massage. We just had couples side-by-side massages when we were in Cancun last month. Heavenly. My favorite part of a massage is when they do my hands and feet though. I guess I carry a lot of stress in my hands and feet.

This will shock you. Among all the girly things I've never done? Getting a facial is one of them. Not the kind you pay for anyway.

It has been sooo long since I had a massage or a facial. And I've never had one from a Russian woman who says, "for pleasure, naht pain" Awesome!

I love Moog.
And was just dreaming about a big burly Russian rubbing me down while I as in the shower this morning. Um, well the rubbing wouldn't happen in the shower per se well, unless the big burly was a Latino, or Greek (with good hygiene), or Italian.
I should stop now.

Oh, you have to be so careful when you blog, when you know Mooooog.

Those people with plain names that are verbalized exotically freak me out. I have a friend who is Andrea and she's always correcting people, "It's Ahhhndrea." Shut the hell up, Andrea.

Massage & facial on the same day. My kind of heaven. (I'm ignoring that the facial was craptastic, yes) And that etsy shop? Awesome. I'm in!

I have a feeling that Ah-na may sport a unibrow and has hair on her knuckles...just saying.

I am going to pretend I don't know what moooooog is talking about.

So instead, I want to ask a dumb question - don't hate me. Please.

Are those your ponytails in the picture? Because those are damn cute.

And although I'm jealous of your bruisy massage and NOT jealous of Mooooog's suggestive facial, what I really want are those ponytails.

Because I so can't pull that look off.

Anyway, what were we talking about?

Ah yes. Facial. Hmmmmm...

A maaaahhhhhsage is the best way to describe it, right? Have you ever noticed that women from places like Russia or Germany always give the best massages? The one time I went to an American lady, she totally sucked...yapped the whole time about how her boyfriend won't propose to her and all that crap. I still had knots all over my back after the massage!! But when I saw the German woman...oh, I was in heaven. Pure heaven.

So good to hear that A is doing well!!!!

AAAAAHHHH Spa Day!!! LOVE IT! Even if the facial wasn't so great, at least you were alone and no one was asking you for a juice box.

Happy you had a wonderful dinner!

You who hate the French end with "fin?" HAHAHAHAHA! I love you.

And am jealous of your spa day. Well, maybe not the facial.

My thoughts on Groupon: That shit's on sale for a reason. Nuff said. Glad you and A had an amazing dinner celebration though!
