Boca, Boca, Boca!

Seriously, I can't just say Boca once, haha.

Anyhoo, moving on. So as you've probably seen around the blogosphere, Boca spa nights have been popping up all over the place and this past Tuesday it popped up in West Hollywood at the Voda Spa.

I was more than excited to go and get pampered and meet some bloggers while doing it. And basically, it was awesome. As soon as I pulled up and parked I met Andrea (who is awesome by the way) and seconds after entering the spa I was attacked (in the best way possible) with hugs from Nicole! Seriously we'd been trying to meet for at least a year and alas it was a free spa night that finally did the trick, haha. Also there was the fabulous Tara (oh and check out her recap of the night here) and it was great to chat and see her too. I also got to hang out and chat with Teresa who was there on behalf of Boca and I met her last year at BlogHer so it was great to see her again and hang out.

My first act of business was dinner. There were Boca sliders that were surprisingly delicious and mango salsa and chips that I pretty much devoured. It was all so delicious and hey, good for me too! Can't go wrong there.

After eating a bit I made my way upstairs to indulge in one of my favorite spa treatments, a pedicure! Seriously, for being so ticklish I love a good pedicure, haha. Anyhoo, it was awesome and Tara even took some pics to document it for me:

The funniest part was that I guess I'm taller than most people that go to this spa because my legs were a little long for the seat I felt a little bad for the lady working on my toes, haha. Oh well, they still turned out awesome, I got a deep red nail polish on them and I am in loooove.

After the pedicure I got a massage. I couldn't tell you how long it was because I was on Cloud 9 the whole time, haha. It was so relaxing and peaceful and oy. Loved it.

Once the massage was done I hung out a little bit more before going to a mini wellness session where I learned some tips of things to do at work so I can ease some tension in my body, etc. It was pretty nice, granted I tried not to laugh because I can't stay serious most of the time, haha.

And lastly, I got a manicure. I was the last person to get one so I was pretty excited they fit me in even if it went a little past the schedule. But with Nicole and Andrea's input I got dark chocolate brown polish on my nails, a first for me! And I have to say, I sort of love it. So yes Nicole you were totally right, dark and angsty is cute, haha.

When the event was over I got to leave some pretty neat schwag, a Boca yoga mat, some coupons, a planner and a relaxing CD and I definitely plan on using it all.

All in all it was such a fun night and I'm so glad I was able to go! I can't wait until another fun LA blogger meetup of sorts, woo.

Oh and I'm headed to Houston for the Mom 2.0 Summit for work so look for me if you're there and come say hi!

But stop by tomorrow where my sister will be popping her blogging cherry and posting on who knows what, haha.

happy thursday!
