It has been soooooo long since I've blogged and I've missed it. I can't promise I'll be as consistent as I was before, but I figured I'd like to get back to blogging at least periodically, because my notebook is still bursting with all the ideas I have yet to share. Meanwhile, I have to re-learn the whole Blogger platform and all the upgrades. The fact that I still get comments on posts I wrote what seems like eons ago, esp in internet time, has also been encouraging.
Life has taken me in a bunch of new directions. I went from being a SAHM mom, to now working part time and going back to grad school. My online store has currently closed, as I pursue other avenues, but I pray that eventually my dreams of being a mompreneur materialize.
Ok so to the topic that brought me here today... Men and pedicures
Last February, I actually wrote a series of posts, that offered a series of suggestions for a co-ed spa party, that wouldn't be too feminine for the guys to enjoy. As I said then, my husband is NOT the type of guy who would normally go anywhere near a foot soak bath. However, he's also switched careers in the past year and now that he is in construction he is on his feet pretty much all day. I've been giving him foot rubs at night, and have been able to even convince him to do Epsom salt foot soaks once a week to help relieve the pain, and to soften his feet making them easier for me to massage.
His birthday is next Monday and I have a series of things planned for Sunday, including visitng Medieval Times. So I figured I should kick the Sunday night foot soak up a notch and do a "foot rub fit for a king" or something along those lines.
So here is the part where I see if anyone is still paying attention. I'm trying to decide what exactly to do, not so interested in the nails part but more so exfoliating and massaging. So here is an initial list of things to throw out, of course I won't do all of them but it'll get the ball rolling. Let me know what you think will work well, what you'd do or if there are anyother suggestions.
- Marbles at the bottom of the foot bath to help massage (which may be cool since the massage function on the bath does little more than make the water vibrate)
- Hot rock massage -heated using crockpot
- Melting paraffin in my crockpot
- I think I'll def pick up a ped Egg
- I do have some powdered milk left over from a chai recipe so I may incorporate that in the soak with the salt instead of my usual vinegar
