This month was a whirlwind. It moved fast. Of course, I kind of thought that it would seeing as how I wrote a blog post about all the things that were happening this month. But I’m here to tell you, it was a doozy!
But before we talk about the specifics, I feel that I should give you a little insight in my life. My real 9 to 5 job is at a college. I’ve actually worked in higher education for a while. I love working there as the students energize me. You know that feeling of “the world is my oyster?” They have it, and it is fun to watch it.
When you work at a college, especially in student services, there are two times a year that life is bad. The month of August, and the first two weeks in January. You see, those times are officially deemed as Peak Registration times. They are full of students completing last-minute admissions paperwork, asking massive questions about financial aid forms that they may not have completed correctly, and new student orientations.
So there’s been a lot going on. It’s the norm for this time of year.
And as we opened our doors recently to the start of a new semester, I took a little breath of relief. And as I left work one evening, I made a little stop on my way home. And my day ended blissfully.
I got a massage at Massage Envy.
I had knots. And kinks. And I promise I think there were even bubbles.
But my massage therapist worked it all out. And a couple of times, I wanted to come off the table. Because I was just that tense.
It was loooonnnngggg over due.
And I am so glad I did it. It was the perfect way to end the stress of the month.
But here’s the deal, in case you didn’t know:
Massage Envy has hundreds of locations all across the country. And they have an awesome monthly membership program with massages, and facials, and upgrades. We like upgrades.
Just because I want you to be a part of my experience…here are some photos.
And if you want to make a difference while you’re getting a massage, check out the Massage Envy Healing Hands for Arthritis event on September 18. Massage Envy will donate $10 from every one-hour massage and facial to the Arthritis Foundation.
But that’s not all!!! Massage Envy wants me share the bliss of a one-hour massage with my readers who live in the Dallas area near Cedar Hill. The winner will receive a massage at the new Cedar Hill location as part of its Grand Opening in Uptown Village.

I just love reading your blogs. I’m glad you took time out for yourself and got a message. Well I could use one too! My life this past year has been crazy! Hubby lost his job, got a job in April and was gone on the road three weeks at a time. Only home for a few days. So it was all on me to drop off kids, pick up kids, take to practice and games. That has been stressful! Let not even mention my health. The steroids have me blowing up and lots of side effects. So needless to say, a message would do me good!!
Massage Envy is my other family!
I love Massage Envy! It’s my little escape from reality!
