Spa Days

February 28th, 2011 by theAddison

Somebody loves my Shannon so much (that would be me) that he bought her a spa package at a nearby resort for Valentine’s Day.  I have to admit, it wasn’t totally my idea.  My idea was very different but I had expert advice from Lee.  Shannon loved it!.  Two nights with a full day of spa treatments in between.  She came back refreshed and renewed. 

Shannon and I have travelled extensively both for pleasure and for business.  One thing that just annoys me is being nickle and dimed for everything at a lodging property.  $4 for a bottle of water?  $3 per hour for bicycle rental?  Valet parking even though no other parking option is available?  C’mon!  Fortunately we purchased an all-inclusive package for Shannon but they still tried to charge her for these “extras”.  I once stayed at a property that insisted they could charge me for parking as an extra even though I had no car!  Bah!

My other special girl recently had a day at the spa as well.  Maggie Doone is quite the hairy beast and needs a regular shearing.  If you let her hair grow she gets a full skirt and a mane.  With the warmer weather upon us she really needed her own spa day!

The picture you see here is the aftermath of Maggie Doone’s haircut.  It looks like there is enough hair here to build a whole new dog!  Maggie quite enjoys a day at the spa and it takes years off of her attitude.  After a haircut she prances around town showing off what a pretty dog she is.

Shannon and Lee enjoy spa treatments at Magna’s Aveda Salon.   Magna’s is in the Historic District, just a short walk from the Addison and features a full line of massages, facials, hair cuts and everything else you would expect from a full-service day spa.  You can check them out at www.MagnaSalon.com.

I don’t have a good picture of the recently shorn Maggie Doone.  She is so dark that it is hard to get a good picture of her.  You’ll just have to stop by the inn to see her.  She’s at the front desk during the day and would love to see you!
