Check out who won the nwaMotherlode Spa Girl Giveaway!


Drum roll, please … The Spa Girl Giveaway winner is Shelly Parker!

Shelly, a Motherlode subscriber since Nov. 3, snagged the $195 Bliss spa package from Sanctuary Day Spa & Salon in Fayetteville. Her winnings include a one-hour Signature massage, aromatherapy facial and manicure and pedicure. Yummy.

Shelly works as a secretary in the Springdale Police Department’s background investigation and training division. And she loves massages.

Shelly is mother to a soon-to-be 13-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old step-daughter. She first heard about when her friend, Holly Shacklett, e-mailed her about the first Spa Girl Giveaway in October.

Before we spoke on the phone, I got this e-mail from Shelly (it was so funny I had to share):

I’m so stinking excited!! You have no idea how much I need this!!!!
I’m calling you now. Thank you so much!!

P.S. My husband said “Good, I can now mark that off my list.” 🙂
