Bon Voyage Moms Weekend

I believe that Moms should take a little time for themselves.  Whether it’s hiding in your room to quickly read a chapter in a really great book, off to the salon for a quick manicure or pedicure, or even locking yourself in the bathroom so you can have a telephone conversation with a girlfriend, without interruption.  Dealing with family and home life can make any mom a little batty, just a little time away from the dishes, laundry, carpool and whining really rejuvenates Mom.

That being said, I’d consider myself quite lucky to be able to take a weekend away with just the girls.

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.
