Happy to be home...

We are back from Sin City. I accomplished 4 out of 5 of my plans and added one miscellaneous ;)
I did not managed breakfast in bed but sure enjoyed a lot of good food. We had fun and actually relaxed with is basically an oxymoron in Vegas. We did not stay up late and instead took advantage of the incredible bed at the Wynn, some quiet and no little one waking us up at the crack of dawn. The highlight of the trip for me was the most incredible massage I have ever had. I decided prior to the trip that I was going to treat myself. I never do stuff like this for myself, and as all you moms know we usually take care of everyone else before taking care of ourselves. I think it is so vital to recharge the batteries every so often. So after choosing my massage and paying what amounted to two weeks of groceries, I got naked and got ready for 80 minutes of pure relaxation. If you ever stay at the Wynn I highly recommend the Arabian massage. Oh my goodness. At one point I almost started crying... seriously it was like I finally let go and was just in the moment. I have some self admitted control issues and for me to clear my mind is really tough. At the beginning I was actually laying there thinking, " Hmmm, what am I supposed to tip her?, Am I going to shower in the spa or go up to my room?, What time do I have to get up in the morning?" etc... It's insane. Finally, I was like "Okay, for what I am paying I better enjoy every freakin moment of this." Once I let go it was pure bliss. I am still feeling the positive effects today so I know it was much needed. So, Vegas was a success and we were very excited to see Peanut when we got back home. : )
