Massages In Orange County Make for great gifts

massages roomMy boyfriend and I went on a vacation to California, which I have to tell you was probably one of the best vacations I have ever been on. It was absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. I think the best part of the trip was the present we got from my parents. When they found out we were going to take this trip they got us both massages in Orange County. When we found out we were so excited. We really wanted to take this trip to relax because we have both been under a lot of stress, so this was definitely the perfect gift.


Let me tell you, that was the most amazing massage I have ever had. I think I was in that state in between sleeping and awake because I was so relaxed. We talked about all the good spots, and what sort of massage we were looking to get, so everything they did was perfect. My boyfriend said pretty much the same thing. He said he felt like a new man when he was done with the massage. We both definitely did not want the massages to end. If you are ever in California you absolutely have to

Massages in Huntington Beach for Dad too!

FathersdayFather’s day is Sunday June 15, just 18 days away. I know that probably seems like plenty of shopping time but boy do these late Spring days fly by with school getting out and lots and lots of lawn work to be done! To lighten my load a bit this year I am choosing gift certificates for massages in Huntington Beach for my husband and my father. I know they will appreciate the time away to themselves to just relax and have nobody ask anything of them and it saves me time, which always seems to run short.

Men can benefit from massage if they have pain, especially in common areas like the neck and back. Massage for men helps them to recover more quickly from exercise or athletic pain and it is a stress reliever. All of these items I know the men in my life will appreciate and if they are feeling relief they will be more at ease which is beneficial to their families as well. If you have yet to purchase a gift for the men in your life for Father’s day, try giving them a gift certificate for a massage, I think they will be pleased.

Facials From Orange County Make For Great Gifts

I always have a hard time thinking of something to give as a gift. I don’t know what it is about me, but I am really terrible at giving gifts. Ask anyone who has received a gift from me… Horrible. Finally I realized something that I can give to my girlfriends for probably the rest of their lives that they will be happy with every time. What girl wouldn’t like to get a facial from orange county? I have gotten many facials from Orange County, and I am pretty obsessed with them. They make my face feel unbelievably smooth and clean. Getting a facial at the end of each month is a great way to clear off your palate and be ready to conquer another month! Being at your best is your job, so why wouldn’t you want to do anything that could help you!? I know my friends are always complaining about how they feel like their faces just take a beating all the time with all the make up and stress sweat, and dirt from outside. Of course this facial from Orange County would do the trick!

Over the Top Gifts

Sometimes I like to day dream about over the top gifts. Either to receive or give it is fun to think about having the absolute most extreme presents or to surprise someone special with something they would never expect. Could you imagine buying a brand new truck for your brother? Wouldn’t it be fun to see the look on his face as you hand him the key and the title, for no special reason or a birthday, it would just be so fun to do that. I also think about buying my mom the trip of a lifetime where she would be totally spoiled and not have to worry about money at all, just get whatever she wants to eat or drink and do whatever she likes without worrying about the price.

Of course all this is just fantasy but it is fun to escape for a bit and think about it still. I would love to plan a house so fancy that it would include a swimming pool, indoors and outdoors, elevator service, a guest house and a tennis court. I would have a wine cellar and a green house, chickens and horses. I would also have a great big barn to have parties in oh and a stocked pond for my kids to fish in. What do you day dream about?


Sometimes a Gift is Making a Great Dinner

Today I am making chicken wild rice soup for supper. My husband works so hard, he gets up around three or four am and heads off to work. He doesn’t usually get home until five, six, or last night it was seven. That is a very long day. I always try to have a nice warm meal ready for him when he gets home because he doesn’t usually eat all day. He travels quite a bit and if he stops that means he gets home later so he doesn’t like to stop.

I had a chicken in the freezer so I put it in a large pot with some water and am going to boil it until the meat falls off the bones. After I de-bone the chicken I will add the wild rice that I cooked separately to the chicken. To make a good cream soup you need half and half and some butter. Doesn’t this sound great already? I usually sneak in an onion that I pretty much pulverize so disguise it because my husband hates onions. Garlic, celery, and shredded carrots make their way in the pot along with the rice. I add salt and pepper to taste.

All of this cooks for a couple hours on a low simmer. To go with the soup I will  make a loaf of beer bread. I used to buy a mix but I found a great recipe in an online search. It is just as good, there are less preservatives and it is a lot cheaper. When my man gets home today he will be greeted with a smile, a house that smells delicious and a warm bowl of soup. It might just be a good night to hint about the Huntington Beach facials I would like for Christmas for my daughter and I.
