This is the treatment I have been looking forward to the most since I found out I won the Sego Lily Blogger Contest! The day they told me I had won, I was able to take a tour of the Sego Lily Layton Spa. The room I couldn’t wait to try out was the COUPLE’S ROOM. Inside are two massage tables placed side by side, along with an enormously deep jacuzzi tub, and a comfy LOVE seat! The whole room just screams romance. I was also informed on that day, that my husband and I would get to experience that room around Valentine’s Day for the couple’s massage treatment. I’m pretty sure a little scream of my own slipped out upon receiving that news.

Was I excited?

Do the stars come out at night? Are massage therapist’s relatives the luckiest people alive? Is the true meaning of life spelled C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E? I believe all of these questions are to be answered in the affirmative. So, YES… I was excited! It was six (long) months ago I learned that my husband and I were to be the lucky recipients of this great and romantic adventure and the anticipation has been building ever since..

The day finally arrived! It was a raging blizzard outside when we left our home. But that didn’t stop us from traveling over the river and through the stormy woods. The only thing that possibly could have stopped us from our long awaited pampering for two, was a vehicle without four wheel drive. But, since all of our vehicles are 4×4, we were in business! I’m not sure when I have appreciated four wheel drive more! IMG_0746

We got on our plush robes and waited in the beautiful waiting area until our therapists, Amanda and Cassi came and escorted us to the couple’s room.


Once inside we were able to choose what scent of oil we desired for the Swedish massage. This was a first time visit for Dave to a spa. He has never had a real professional massage to speak of either. That was about to change! Bring on Amanda! We were very happy to be able to introduce him to the wonderful world of massage therapy. He was actually happier than we were about this. Of course, if he wasn’t, I would be a little worried about him. I mean after-all, WHO in their right mind wouldn’t love a Swedish massage complete with aromatic oils, soothing music playing in the background, a dimly lit room, and your sweetheart enjoying it along with you right by your side? IMG_0747 Once again it appears I enjoyed my massage a little too much…


Cassi and Amanda waiting very happily outside the door after our massage to hand us our glass of lemon water. I think Cassi enjoyed it as much as we did! What great professionals they both are.

BUT WAIT! The fun and romance is not over yet. If you read the title, then you noticed it said ♥ Couple’s Valentine Package ♥. Yes, there’s more! The package deal is not only a couple’s Swedish massage, but a couple’s pedicure as well.

Okay so the word “pedicure” did not give Dave warm fuzzies all over. He wasn’t real thrilled about the idea of himself having a pedicure. Even though I explained how wonderful they were and how much his feetsies and toesies would thank him afterward (he wasn’t real fond of the words feetsies and toesies either), he still was not sold. Come to find out, many men are not fond of the word pedicure. The juries still out on the words feetsies and toesies. After much persuasion, (and informing him treats were involved), he consented to do the pedicure as a couple instead of him just watching me be the pampered goddess alone.IMG_0770

I’m almost positive just relaxing and kicking back in the very comfortable chairs would have been enough for him. But in came Gisselle and Jessica to add some spice to the mix.IMG_7054

When I say “spice”, I literally mean “spice”. The water was loaded with some wonderful cranberries and spicy orange slices and we were served the most amazing and delicious warm apple sections spiced with cinnamon and sugar, along with a trail mix including CHOCOLATE! Oh, and let me not forget the hot cocoa! It was supreme!IMG_7059

Sego Lily certainly knows how to add a little spice while warming you up!


Contrary to what you make think, that is NOT a boa constrictor around Dave’s neck. Even though Sego Lily knows how to spice things up, I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t go that far. It’s actually a neck warmer. Just another one of their many little perks that makes the experience here so heavenly and perfect.


I think even Dave finally warmed up to this. What a guy!


My esthetician, Gissele, was very entertaining to talk to. Dave and her both speak Spanish and so they were having a lot fun talking even though Jessica and I had no idea what they were saying. That’s okay Jessica and I had our own fun trying to translate a word here and there.


I was the only one that got to choose my favorite shade for my nails. Dave decided to pass on a color.☺ For those of you that know me, it’s a total no brainer that I went with a deep rich purple shade. Of course, Gisselle had to apply it twice because in keeping with my track record, I smudged a couple of my toes before I left the building. She couldn’t have been kinder or more understanding about it.

This was the most elaborate and pamper-ish (is that a word?) pedicure I have ever had (and I can guarantee it was the same for Dave – since he’s never had one before!) Sego Lily goes all out to make sure this is an experience of feeling ultimately pampered and Queenly – or of course, Kingly in Dave’s case.


This Valentine’s Couple Package♥ was all and even more than I hoped for. What a great way to spend some time together with your sweetheart!

If you are a man reading this, then by all means hurry and call Sego Lily and get this scheduled for you and your honey NOW. You will score BIG! Trust me on this one. And if you are a woman, then you can either hint around by forwarding this post to your man OR you can call Sego Lily yourself and schedule it for you both. After the experience you will probably receive lots of chocolate from your man thanking you for “making” him be pampered. They all love it, they just don’t want to admit it! IMG_0782

Once again, THANK YOU Sego Lily for a wonderful Valentine’s Day treat! We ♥LOVED♥ it!
