Does Mom Get A Chance To Relax?

Every now and then, this mom needs a chance to unwind and unplug.  For the last couple of days I have been suffering from a migraine that just won’t go away.  As a blogger, every now and then I receive products or services in exchange for a post or review, (all my own thoughts and opinions,) a service at Chill and Relax being one of them.

You may have read my post/giveaway a while back with CoWork+Play (Link to Previous Post).  CoWork+Play was originally located right next door to Chill and Relax.  The benefit of them being about 3 doors apart, you could drop off the kids for some fun while mom got a little pampering.  Well, I finally had the opportunity to check it out for myself.

Last night I had a girls night out with my mother-in-law.  We had the opportunity to see Billy Elliot at Segerstrom Center For The Arts.When you arrive at the theater, there is lots of fun to be had.  Attendees have the option to get dressed up, practice their leaps or ballet positions while snapping a photo in front of the billboard and ballet bar.

Now that I’ve hit that “BIG 40”, a few of my friends have been giving me a hard time about my typical attire – “T”-Shirt & Jeans.  Hey, they are fun AND comfortable and since I’m a stay at home mom, who really cares what I wear, right?  There are even some days I sneak out to drop off the kids at school in yoga pants, tanks and a sweatshirt because I will squeeze in a Zumba class before heading home.

Night Out To See Warhorse

Tonight, I am super excited to attend the Tony Award® winning show WAR HORSE at  Segerstrom Center for the Arts.  I just saw the movie over the weekend and LOVED it!  If you haven’t seen it, it is a great rental  – try Netflix or Showtime.  Follow me on twitter tonight as I tweet about the show!  @ToddlerTrails

I’m really looking forward to learning more about the magnificent “Joey” puppet created by Handspring Puppet Company, see behind-the-scenes footage featuring Adrian Kohler and Basil Jones – puppet designers for WAR HORSE, try my hand at operating a puppet created in the style of “Young Joey” and learn from an American WWI soldier about what life might have been like during “The War to End all Wars.”  They will even have WWI artifacts and uniforms on display.
