 Much better than tweezing!  You dont get a rash afterwards?

Quoting Mariagma3:

 Last month, I had my eyebrows waxed! I need it done again!

 clapping Good for you!  So important to focus on the things that make us happy without having to comprimise anything.  Kickboxing is hard, you must be in really good shape to do that.  Ahhhh the Keys.....

Quoting kam013:

Honestly, lately I do a lot for myself.  As most Moms do, I have spent the majority of my life doing things for others, including my MIL (she doesn't drive).  So this year I decided it was time to take back my life, so to speak.

I signed up for Kick-boxing classes, I bought a new treadmill and I have been going tanning.  I also bought DH & I new bikes. I went shopping for some new workout clothes and bought myself several new pairs of sneakers.  In case you couldn't tell I have been on a fitness kick. LOL

For the first time in about a year I loaded 5 new books to my kindle and am actually taking the time to read them.

I have also booked a trip for DH & I to go to Florida for a week. We are spending a few days visiting my Mom & Dad and are then spending the rest of the time in Key West.  I bought myself some new jewelry for the trip too.

Beyond that I always have monthly lunch dates with my girlfriends and I play tennis with my BFF 3 days a week.

Wow, there are a lot of "I's" in that post, probably more than I have ever used.  Though I have always done some stuff for myself, I have really started focusing on things that make me happy.

 I hope you dont feel guilty for long, its a wonderful present to yourself and its gorgeous too.  You so deserve it, anything that makes you happy is priceless.

Quoting Maddie24:

 I got a porch and the back yard landscaped.  I have been talking about this dream for quite a while.  I wanted to get everything settled before retirement years.  I do feel guilty - but it is done.

 I love silver jewelry.  How often do you clean your pieces?

Quoting DesignGirl450:

Last week in Mexico, I bought myself some more silver jewellery.

 Gotta have some me time! Probably more so than material things.

Quoting Cindy18:

Oooo, yeah. That's not cheap!

Quoting Esmrlda:

 Yeah Tatiana I love it!  I feel the same way except that Im still helping mine with college. Haha One more year.


Quoting Tatiana7:

I now treat myself to mani/pedis. Love that. I get myself new bags/shoes every now and again.

Having adult children means all the "extra" funds can go to me! Lol.

 Oh yes you should, go treat yourself!

Quoting Why123:

I don't remember.  It has been a while.  I have a huge stash of books because I read constantly.  I am thinking about going to the cafeteria for lunch today.  That would be different.
