We all have one; what's yours?

Okay, we all know that we must take care of ourselves, not just our kiddos.  What's the one thing you afford yourself?  Your guilty pleasure that's ALL for you and ONLY you!?

For me... it's a tanning salon membership.  I spend $30 a month to have unlimited tanning at my disposal.  It give me a much needed 10 minutes of quiet time (other than the hypnotizing hum of the bed) after I drop the kids off at school and before I go to work .  It's so refreshing, and gives me a healthy glow year round. : )

** Before anybody starts preaching about the dangers:  I usually only go once or twice a week, and I use the level 3 bed so most of the "harmful" rays are filtered out.**

I get my nails done about every 2-3 weeks. I also get pedicures in the spring/summer months faithfully.

I love handbags, i buy a lot of handbags, maybe once a month..nothing too expensive. I don't spend more than forty dollars on one..

My laptop lol. I bought it when we got my tax return. Now we don't have to fight over the comp and he's not allowed to touch MY laptop lol. Lame, I know.

I also have a book collection. I love to read. Practically every time we go on a major grocery shopping trip I buy at least one book.

I'm such a nerd.

Massages. Hubby and I will buy a 5 session plan for $325. which includes tips and renew it when it's over. We usually go twice a month, when he's home for the two weeks, so it turns out to be $325.00 per month, give or take.

I really can't say that we don't indulge ourselves regularly. We're fortunate enough to be able to do so without waiting for a special time but massages are definitely for us.

 I go to the tanner, too! I don't think thats my indulgence though. I think it would be all the books and bubble baths and foams and creams and candles I buy to take my bath every evening.

I get my nails done every other week and a pedicure once a month.  I also do the tanning.  And every now and then I have a girls day out...shopping and lunch!!
