patchworkheartth.jpgHow to enter: It’s easy! Just comment here (you’ll see the word “comment” at the bottom of this post) or e-mail us at and tell us why you need a massage right now. We’ll choose a winner at random and you can increase your chances of being that girl by e-mailing info about this giveaway to friends. Just don’t forget to CC the mamas so we’ll know you did.

Stress is a word that’s overused, precisely because we’re all over-stressed. This massage/night out could do you good, so let’s get going! Can’t wait to see your comments!


  1. I am commenting on behalf of my wife Kathleen. She is a loyal follower of this site and is in of pampering. Kathleen has been sick for the past 3 or four days running 101 – 102 degrees fever. While I am gone at work every day, she runs the home ensuring that everything thing is done and in order and keeps up with our 13 month old. Over the past few days as she deal with being sick she has continued to try to do “her part” even if it is through “honey do” lists.

    Since she is my wife, and I love her very much, I think Kathleen would be a perfect candidate for your Spa Girl Giveaway.

  2. What an awesome husband you are to sign your wife up for our giveaway while she’s sick! That’s just so absolutely sweet 😉

  3. My husband and I could really use something like this…between traveling for work and then taking care of kids there is NEVER and alone time!

  4. After having 3 babies in the last 4 years, I could really use a relaxing experience! Please put me in the drawing!

  5. I think this would be awesome!! My husband and I could really use a day like this especially since he is going to be out of town for 6 weeks coming up soon. That leaves me home with our 18 month old, I made need some relaxation before the craziness begins!! But what fun it will be!! 🙂

  6. This sounds like a dream come true. My husband and I have 4 children ages 9, 8, 6, and 4(next week). My 70yr old mother also lives with us. We moved here 5yrs ago from Ohio and have no family here. My husband and I go out to eat by ourselves only once a year because my mom has trouble keeping an eye on all our kids and a babysitter costs way too much when you have 4 kids. My husband works 50-60hrs a week and the kids and my part-time job for our church keep my schedule just as busy. Every year for special occasions I only ask for sometime alone with my wonderful husband of 11yrs (next month). You have a wonderful website here. Thank you for keeping us all informed.

  7. I am a mother of a very high strung 2 year old boy and a full time nurse. I feel like sometimes I am always giving to others but am either to tired or do not have time for myself. This would be so nice and relaxing.

  8. OK – I want it, but I think you should give it to Kathleen and her awesome hubby –

  9. my husband and I could definitely use this!! we both work full time and have an 8 month old baby who is (finally!)cutting teeth, which makes our little angel a LITTLE bit cranky!! this would allow us to spend some quality time together, which we would love!! plus Granny would love to use this opportunity to watch Addison… thanks!

  10. My husband and I can definitely use a night away from the kids. We moved to NWA just over a month ago & have not had an opportunity to get out by ourselves yet.

  11. I think all women, including myself, spend so much time and energy focusing on our children that there is little left for ourselves and our husbands. A spa package would be a great way to reconnect with him and leave the stresses of life for awhile.

  12. I’d like to nominate my daughter. She needs some much deserved R&R. She is a single mother of 2 girls, she works a full time job and also goes to college. I don’t know how she manages all this and keeps going with a good attitude. She is determined to give herself and her girls a better life. I would love to see her enjoy this spa giveaway. Thanks, a loving Mom

  13. Now my story of how we just moved here and are stressed about getting our 3 kids settled and house set up, etc. seems lame… The single mom deserves it : )

  14. Thanks, Shannon! We’re really glad you found us and welcome to NWA (you, too, Amy H.!) There are so many people who have commented here — and who have e-mailed us at the mamas address — who soooo need massages and nights out.

    Thank you for sharing. We want this to be a place where you can be in the company of people who know what you’re going through and understand.

    I’m glad we don’t have to choose — it would be impossible! The winner will be chosen at random at 4 p.m. today. Can’t wait to see which deserving mom it will be! We’ll announce tomorrow morning.

    Shannon M. (the “other” Shannon)
