Today I did a couple of firsts.
My first massage.
My first facial.
I got another coupon from Groupon for a 2 hour massage/facial. So Laura and I headed out this morning and wow!!!! This is on my bucket list to do at least once a month from now on. I am taking "the man" the next time. I feel so good and my skin is wonderful too.

Rog stayed home with the girls and read most of the time I am guessing. He did take we out shopping. No Les not your kind of shopping , my kind of shopping.

We are trying it tonight, but we are kind of making up our own recipe. If things are not good we will try one of their recipes before we make our final judgement on the cooker. If the meal is no good we will just have to fire the cook, I guess. LOL The meal was good, but I think following one of their recipes I will really like the cooker even better.
LOL LOL LOL Love this one.
