What is your one "luxury"

I know moms go without a lot of things to be able to spend more time or money on their children, but what is your one "luxury" item or service that you will do, just for you?

For me it has to be gourmet coffee. I guess I don't spend a TON of money on this, just a few dollars more than regular coffee, but I love to get different flavors I will spend the extra money trying different brands and kinds. I look forward to it every morning and I have no intentions on giving it up!

  • My indulgence is bath products! I love body washes and shampoos! Thank Heavens for Suave! :D I also love candles, but they're a "necessity" with boys and dogs! :D~

  • Double mocha cappuccino =3

    It's a powdered kind, so it's not homemade or anything close to what Starbucks has...but it's still so chocolatey and yummy and it's a good coffee alternative in the morning.

  • My luxury is my gym membership. Not only is it a luxury, but it's an investment in my health, a necessity. I was ordered by my doctor to lose weight, the healthy way. Going to the gym has been sort of an addiction for me. I go 6 mornings a week. I really enjoy my time that I get all to myself. It's a great stress reducer and well, I've got some great eye candy when I meet with my trainer. Yep, I even sprung for the trainer. I wanted to do this right. Learn how to lose the weight and how to keep it off.

  • My horses. They are mine and I make ways to feed and take care of them by giving up things like hair and nail appts, new clothes and shoes, etc.Not to the point of no cosmetics, shampoo conditioner, curling and flat iron, but some big stuff I will do without because they are WELL worth any sacrifice I'm called to make so I can keep them.

  • Scented candles and the occasional Starbucks. A pedicure if I am feeling particularly wicked!
