Real Friends Get Naked!!

Okay, Google pervs first- look around and you'll see that this isn't a porn site and the title is a HUGE tease. Finished reading? Questions? No? Okay bye.

For everyone else, the title of this post came to me Friday while I was spending time with my friend Leah (whom I met through our blogs and only lives about three miles from me). On the way home I told her that I was going to do a post titled "Real Friends Get Naked" and she's a rotten snot like me and said, "Oh do it!". *snort*

After my doctor appointment, Leah and I went to Betty's Bath and Spa to treat ourselves to a one hour massage. I'm almost ashamed to admit that this was my very first massage. When Leah suggested it last month, I decided that I deserved a little pampering for once so I picked her up at work Friday and off we went.

Our first stop was a restaurant called Mannie's in Nob Hill for lunch. Leah works at the local college and eats there on occasion so it sounded like a good place to start our day. The food was pretty good and it was nice to just sit and talk to her for awhile. Usually when we're around each other there are kids vying for our attention! Once lunch was over we headed to the spa and I have to say it was such an awesome experience that I will definitely be going again...SOON!! *smile*

The first thing we did was put on our comfy robes and "snazzy" flip flops then head over to the couch to wait for our wonderful massage therapists. We then went into our assigned room and honestly didn't say a single word to each other the whole hour that we were both getting massages. I think we were both enjoying the silence that neither of us gets at home with our families. Haha

After the massages we headed put to the hot tub for a nice soak. At this spa there is a communal hot tub where both men and women can go but bathing suits are required and then in the women's hot tub (which is the one we used) it's clothing optional. I have to say that this was a very freeing experience for me because I grew up with the whole "you should be ashamed of your naked body" stigma. I was one of those girls in Junior High who would take her clothes into a stall and get dressed so I didn't have to see the other girls naked and vice versa.

This was MY day though so just like all the other women I tossed off my robe and enjoyed a nice nakey soak in the hot tub. That is when "Real Friends Get Naked" hit me and I couldn't wait to tell Leah. You know you're bonding with your friend when you see them nakey on your second "date". I'd say it will be pretty hard for us to top that one anytime soon but considering that we're planning on making our Mama's Day Out a regular accurance, that means more nakey friends time!! Woot woot!!! *laughing hard*

We rounded out the day with a trip to a little local book store, the Library, Sunflower Market to pic up some sushi for Hubby Guy, and then had a nice chat on the way home. Sunday the youngest two kids and I went over to her house for her son's third birthday party. It was alot of fun and her little boy was so cute opening his presents. The boy definitely likes tractors! LOL.

Thank you Leah for talking me into going to the spa. I had a great time and really enjoyed your company. Thank you also for inviting us to W's party. MonkeyBoy had alot of fun and is still talking about how great his first attended party was.

I'm so jealous. Of the massage and hot tub of course, but mostly of getting to spend the afternoon with you. :)

Andrew said...

I'm extremely jealous! But really only about the sushi...

But it's nice to see a real positive post from ya, Jo. You definitely deserve more "Me" days of pure relaxation.

Summer said...

Mo said...

Good for you. Soak it up, girl. Great post title.

Wow! This sounds like a fantastic day. Now, I totally miss Germany again. For my 'condition' the doctor actually prescribed a twice weekly massage! Can you believe it? Twice a week, total bliss, and the health insurance paid for it.

You deserve it though... I don't have any kids. I'm still jelly tho.
