Birthday Expectations

"My birthday is coming up!" I have been announcing this since August... My birthday is the first week of December... I know. I have a problem. But my birthday is my FAVORITE!
And this year, I will turn to SomeeCards to express my feelings.
I want a big celebration. It should be at least a week long.
I admit I have always found it strange that we celebrate me on a day that my mom actually did something noteworthy. So I think this year I'll buy her a gift... as long as she gets me one too...
And I know that if my mom had had a virgin birth, I would be a lot bigger deal. Thanks for dropping the ball, mom.
So my birthday is in December; I do not want holiday celebrations to encroach on my birthday gifts. I warned the hubby that he should start birthday shopping in September so that he has enough money for my Christmas gifts, too.  
I think my birthday is the best holiday of the year, at least for me.

So all I can do is hope that it rocks!
P.S. - I think about others all year. I refuse to feel guilty about my birthday and YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!

My Weekend: Pampered by Chelsea

{Tulsans, keep reading to find out how to enter Chelsea's giveaway!}
I had an amazing weekend. I got to hang out with my best friend from high school, whom I hadn't seen in 5 years! And what's even MORE awesome is that she gave me a body treatment, which was incredible (not to mention the captivating tarot reading I received after that.) Phew. It doesn't get much more interesting that that. But interesting is quite an understatement for Chelsea. More like ~ remarkable.

Let's hear from Chelsea!

What do you like most about your work?
My Favorite thing about my work so far is making people feel good. I love it when I do a waxing or a dermabrasion treatment and the person is dazzled by the effects! I mean everyone lights up when they are sexy and hairless or can see their skin glowing from dermabrasion. I'm all about confidence. I have more than I know what to do with and Ive always been attracted to people that aren't afraid to love themselves. I also really enjoy the social side of my work, hearing about my client's life, helping them relax and always making sure they are comfortable.
What makes your treatments unique?
I would say what makes my treatment unique is me. Aside from Esthetics, I am an astrologer. So I feel this gives me a much deeper understanding of what that person needs to relax. I also try to cater treatment to that persons sign if I can. For example if I know the persons sign before they come to get a treatment (which I usually do) I will use aromatherapy that compliments their sign. For Fire signs, I use dragonsblood, for Earth sign, I use patchouli, for water signs, I use fresh rain and for Air signs, I use lilac. Also, I read tarot cards and I always like to offer that if my client has any questions for the universe or just needs to know whats going on.
What can someone expect from getting a treatment with you?
When getting a treatment from me you can expect to feel special and well taken care of. You can also expect some pretty amazing results. I dont have to sell my treatments. Once you've had one, they sell themselves.

Fantastico! Thanks, Chelsea.
I have already received a facial and a body treatment and I know I'll be coming back for more! And she is as skilled at reading tarot as she is at her treatments. Our reading was truly inspiring. I've never had a reading before, and was, I'll admit, a bit skeptical. But hot damn! She was on the money.
Chelsea is sweet, gentle and certainly full of spunk, and will make you feel at ease whether she's massaging your face or giving you a brazilian.
She has a serene spa room complete with hot towels, soothing candles and oils and top-notch products.

This is the face of a very happy customer.
But wait! It gets even BETTER! If you live in the area, you can enter to win a free facial from Chelsea! Just hop on over to her blog, Chelsea's Treatment, or her facebook page to enter.

Twelve Knits before the end of 2012

I am upping my game over the next year and starting some more challenging projects. These are a few I handpicked from my Ravelry. I have already started on the first one, the ruffle scarf, and it is looking really cool! I thought knitting "short rows" would be hard, but it isn't at all. Which of these projects should I start next? Click on the picture to open the ravelry page!
