How Do You Like To Spend Me Time?

This last week has been very hectic for my family.  We had numerous doctor appointments, celebrated Halloween with all its pomp and circumstance and hosted an annual Harvest party at our house on Saturday night.  Boy, am I tired!

While in the midst of all of this, I tried to catch some much needed me time.  What is me time you ask?  Well, me time is just that.  Getting away from all the daily responsibilities of raising a family and taking time for yourself.  In the world of field trip planning, this is also known as going on a mommy field trip!


This weekend I went on a few mini me time outings.  First, I stopped by my local Vons store on Friday night, after going trick or treating with my kids, to pick up two of my favorite magazines, People and Sunset.  I especially enjoy reading Sunset magazine because it gives me ideas of where to go on vacation with my family.


Then on Saturday morning, I woke up early and went for a manicure and pedicure at my local nail salon.  Simply sitting in the massage chair and reading People magazine, made me feel like I drifted off into the twilight zone, and  I didn’t want to come back anytime soon.  It was a great feeling!


After my mani/pedi, I went home and got ready for our annual Harvest Party that we host at our house every year.  I prepped, cooked, and cleaned for over six hours.  I made pumpkin and bananas breads, three different types of soups, a festive fall-like cake and so much more.  It was a great evening celebrating with family and friends all that the fall season has to offer.


By Sunday morning, I was exhausted.  So I left my humble abode and captured a few more me time moments at my local coffee shop.  I ordered my favorite hot chocolate, read People magazine one last time and headed back home to plan for the week ahead.  My me time was over, but I had captured just enough R&R to carry me through the coming week.

How do you spend your me time when you get a moment to be alone and unwind?  Do you take a walk, go to the beach or read a magazine?   Please share with us your thoughts.  We would love to hear your responses.


And to get you ready for your own me time, save $1 on any one (1) participating magazine title PEOPLE, PEOPLE StyleWatch, Sunset, and InStyle magazine through the Just4U online portal from 10/23/14 – 11/20/14 (while supplies last).

Happy Field Tripping,

Wow! That sounds like a full weekend! I usually spend me time either reading or going to the movies, if I can swing that :)

Erika, I actually like going to the movies by myself when I get a chance. It is just so peaceful to me. How about you?
