A Mother's Day Surprise

I just booked a day at the spa with my mama to celebrate Mother's Day! I am so ridiculously excited about this! I hardly ever get to celebrate with her on Mother's Day because I live so far away, but we will be together all next week..so I decided to celebrate a little early (and she will be totally surprised...if I can keep my big mouth shut!)

We will be spending the day on Monday at The Sundara Spa in Wisconsin Dells. Here's a little taste of the accommodations:








Isn't it gorgeous!?! A complimentary town car will be picking us up in the morning and taking us to the spa. We will start with a purifying bath ritual (whatever that is...it sounds wonderful!) followed by some lounging at the pool. We will then be treated to manis and pedis followed by our massages! Oh...how I hope my mom likes this! I really think it will be a fun day. Apparently we can stay there as long as we want! I just wish my sister was going to be there :( Stupid actuary exams always taking up so much of her time.

In other news, after much hesitation, I went to my WW meeting tonight. I missed last week because of the funeral...and let me just tell you that I ate horribly at home...like really bad. Wine, brownies, wine, candy, wine, pasta salad, NOT low fat bread...it was rough. However...I kept up with all of my running...and it paid off! I only gained 0.2 lbs and let me tell you how crazy excited I am about that! I'm confident that when we are on vacation I will be okay. They have a fitness center, I am going to be able to go grocery shopping for myself, and I'm pretty motivated as of this moment :) Yeah for not screwing up as much as I thought!

Well...I'm off to watch the last 1/2 of Days and then it's bedtime for Jenny! Only two more days of work and then I'm off for a whole week!
