Today is my birthday and I got some pampering from my mom. I get to plan a trip to the spa for a manicure, pedicure, lunch and an aroma-therapy massage. I am relaxing just thinking about it. I just love a spa trip. Oh, and to anyone going to the Westin in Guatemala, I highly recommend the hot stone massage there. Oh my... heaven.

Last night Ferdy and I went out to dinner and grandma stayed with Gabriella. She was sleeping so grandma got to watch her favorite HGTV that she doesn't have at home. It felt odd for the two of us to go out without Gabriella for the first time since she's been home. But, I think we'll need to try to do it more often. There's something to be said for eating at your own pace and with two hands.

Today, my mom, Gabriella and I went to lunch and had a very nice time. Good thing the restaurant serves cheerios to the little ones. It kept her busy for most of the lunch.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I think that is one of the best gifts you could ever receive (or give) - a day at the spa. I'm trying so hard to leave subtle hints to my hubby about a spa gift certificate for Christmas, but I don't think it's getting through!

Have a great B-day!
