the date envelope
contents massage bar from LUSH
This month the plan is to spend a night in at the Brown Home Spa. Whether it be a massage, bubble bath, a good foot soak, or facial masks . . . the point is to just do something to relax and pamper ourselves. Oh, and there must be chocolate.
the date night
Scheduling this date night was pretty tricky as most friday and saturday nights in the month of February were spoken for. So, we found a "free" Monday night and scheduled the date. We put the kids in bed and told them that it was mom & dad's date night so they better not bother us. Months earlier I had purchased a 5-step "sole revival" relaxing foot treatment at LUSH. So we pulled out some towels, 2 large plastic tubs for foot soaks, and set up in the family room. We took turns applying the volcano mask on either other's tootsies and wrapped it all up in plastic wrap (it was pretty intense stuff). While all this was going on we watched some of our favorite tv shows, including "How I Met Your Mother."
Once the feet were soaked, scrubbed, and moisturized we enjoyed a plate of chocolate dipping delights - bananas and rice krispie treats. And some kiwi for me (not for dipping).
It was a great date night in and our feet smelled wonderful.

(I used the instruction sheet that came with the foot kit on my scrapbook page. And, yep, I know the the photo on the left looks kinda creepy - like I've got a leg coming out of my chest. It is what it is.)
