Thoughts during my facial

Last Friday, I had the day off work and Luke was at school to celebrate Halloween with his friends. So, I decided to take advantage of the free time and scheduled a facial. Oh man, I love facials. But they are pretty spendy, so I don’t get them too often. . . and since it isn’t something that I do too much, it’s always a little bit of a new experience for me. I sorta remember what is going to happen but there are always a few things that I didn’t remember from last time. And I can never seem to quite turn my mind off. I spend most of the time reminding myself to stay in the moment. But, I thought I would share with you some of my random thoughts I had during my facial to give you a little laugh for your Tuesday. Winking smile 


She just asked me what kind of facial I want . .. umm the normal one? How long has it been since I’ve been here?

Oh man, that warm towel is the best.

I hope I don’t have coffee breath.

Head messages are great, but she is totally messing up my hair.

Oh foot massage, that’s right. . . sorry I forgot to shave today.

Arm massage, um ok..  . you can tell that my biceps are massive from bodypump and not just fat, right?

So. much. lotion. Good thing I didn’t shower yet today.

Hmmm this music is sorta weird. It’s like a tribal sound track. I wonder if any salons play the latest hits. I would much rather listen to Taylor Swift and One Direction that this stuff.

The neck massage. Whoa. + a warm towel on my neck. <love>

This is great. I should do this more often.

I need to clean the bathrooms later. Seriously, whose idea was it to build a house with 4! bathrooms. That was not smart.

Ok. Stop thinking about that. Be in the moment. mmmmm feels so nice.

I hope Luke is having fun at his Halloween party. He’s the cutest little fireman.

I should write a blog post about this. Does anyone else do this?

that warm towel again. so good.

done. already? oh man, it always goes too quick.

yup, I know I should come back sooner rather than later. . . believe me, I’ll try.

oh goodness, she messed up my hair really good.


And back out to the cold morning. 27 degrees here in MN. WTF?


Linking up with Becky for TYT. Smile

  1. Hahah! So much fun to read. I’ve never had a facial before, but I just know my mind would be racing a minute the whole time as well. I’m horrible @ just being in the moment.

  3. You crack me up – I have gotten a few facials and always seem to have so many thoughts as well – I tell myself calm, relax and then I laugh at myself in my head I just don’t do the whole Zen thing well 🙂

  4. haha oh man, my thoughts always wander during that kind of stuff. She got your hair good! I asked Riley how I looked one time after a facial and he said “shiny.” Not the right answer haha

      Next time for sure not touching the hair – OMG it was terrible. Good think I was headed home afterwards for a run + shower. . .

  6. Hahahaha! I have similar thoughts during facials. Though the ones I get are not as relaxing… think poking out every single pore and then peeling for a week later.

  7. This is super cute! The girl who does facials for me talks the whole time, so I don’t have time to think. Hot towels are the best!!

  8. Love all the thoughts. That sounds like what happens to me when I am getting the rare massage.

  9. I’m glad you shared your random thoughts! I always have those when getting a massage or facial as well. I am not good at letting my thoughts float away on a cloud like you’re supposed to do.

  10. So funny! I have a really hard time turning my mind off too. I am treating myself to a haircut this afternoon, and my train of though will be pretty random too.

    Also, we looked at some houses with 5 bathrooms. I have no interest in cleaning so many bathrooms. Though, with three girls it might be helpful to have a bunch in the future.
