Like most spas, its a cell free zone so I have no pictures of my adventure. But don't think that didn't stop me from googling fun images so you can get the idea of how it went down.
I arrived a little before 9am. I was greeted with a smile and escorted to the locker room where I was given a robe and slippers. I quickly changed as I was excited to get my day started. My first treatment was a Moroccan Body Scrub and Oil. It smelled really good and pretty much felt like she was scrubbing my skin raw! It was then followed up with oil. I felt like a scrubbing whale at this point as I slide from side to side on the table. She then turned on the shower that I had noticed in the corner, but didn't think much of it at the time. Now I was like, whaaaaaat? She instructed me to take a shower to get the scrubbing beads off. Okaaaaay. I slide on over to the shower and did the best I could while she changed the sheets on the table. This is what I like to think I looked like.
I then got back on the freshly changed warm table and she begin my massage. Oh was it nice! I drifted a little into a snooze when she got to my feet. I used to hate to have my feet rubbed. Now it's my favorite part! She then used the hot stones on my back. Here "I" am again.
2 hours later it was time for me to move on to my facial. I've never had a facial before! I was escorted to another room and greeted by a lady with a warm smile. Right away she handed me a menu and said it was time for me to order lunch. I went crazy and got the Pesto Penne with Chicken. (diced toms included) She then told me to get on the table and she would go place my order. I got all cozy on the table again and closed my eyes. Once she was back she begin. Getting a facial felt a lot like she was in a pantry picking out jars of olive oil and cans of soup to smear all over me. Some of them smelled good, some not so much. There was something she put on my face that when I took a breath I actually coughed/gagged. Slightly embarrassing as I said, "oh! that's strong. I'm ok..it's cool." Here "I" am enjoying everything but the gagging goo.
Another hour later I was fresh faced, pores cleared, eye brows waxed Sarah. With recommendations to exfoliate more. Sigh, I know. I have no skin care routine.
It was then time for lunch! They took me to a private room with 2 chairs, a table, and some magazines. This was the only time I wished I had a friend with me. My lunch was brought in on a silver tray and a smile. All that was missing was a little vase with a flower! I sat there by myself lunching on pesto penne with chicken comfy in my spa robe. Here is my lunch that wasn't really my lunch.
I was feeling pretty awesome at this point. Of course I was thinking of Dexter a lot, but felt relaxed. I estimated it was probably around noon'ish. My next service provider arrived and took me to my next room. It was mani/pedi time! I got settled into the pedicure chair and noticed the clock on the wall. It was 1:05pm! Whoa...I've been here for 4 hours. Cool! Just look at "me" getting my pedicure. So pampered.
I chit chatted with another lady in the room who was visiting from California for a Bar Mitzvah. I had so many questions for her but was playing it cool as I didn't want to offend her by saying, "you are the first person I've ever met that is going to a Bar Mitzvah!" She asked what else there was to do in Dallas as her daughter was with her. I told her about the Perot Nature & Science Museum and Klyde Warren Park. I hope she is able to go! We said our goodbyes and I fought the urge to say, "Shalom".
My pedicure was complete and she moved me to the manicure station. I originally wanted a French manicure, but really liked the color the CA lady had used. It was a pale pink. I told my tech that I would like her color. She said she would ask the other tech what it was. She came back and said, "well...she brought her own. It was Chanel." My response was, "Oh! Well that explains why I liked it." We both busted out laughing and we were immediately besties. She found a lesser brand of polish that was as close as possible and we spent the rest of the time bonding. "My" nails.
By the time I was finished it was almost 3pm. I was ready to go see my boy! It was a WONDERFUL time and I highly recommend Cooper Spa for any of your special moment pampering needs. And of course many many loves and thank you to my husband who got this for me as a Christmas present. He is always so good at presents! They are thought out and meaningful. Surprises me every time the time and effort he puts into his gifts. So far this is in 2nd place for all time favorites. 1st place is still the season tickets to DSM. I was shocked with that one.
