No Relaxation Zone

This was not your mother’s spa experience.  No, this one involved no rest and definitely no relaxation.  After googling “interesting spa experiences,” we found some seriously unique and unusual treatments.  But none as odd as the one upon which we settled.  Erin and I did our first (and last) V-Steam for Week 48’s We Never! … Continue reading »

And I thought V was for Vendetta!

I love the LA times.  Check out the new hot trend – a “V-steam.”  This time we did some due diligence. Nice spa – great facilities.  We are in!  So what is a V-steam?  It would probably be best if you guess.  But think of a wooden box with a hole in it and burning … Continue reading »

I knew I was French! Oh, and Italian, Spanish and African!

Well, Lisa and I went on Thanksgiving holiday this week so we needed an adventure that did not involve us being together.  So we submit our DNA to the National Geographic project to see if we were related to cave-men. Doesn’t everyone do this on their holiday?  Well, they did not directly link me to … Continue reading »

No Surprise Here

Erin and I had another challenge during Thanksgiving week as we were going to be apart again.  Fortunately, our National Geographic Genographic Project results came in just in time!  A couple of months prior, we had purchased a DNA kit from National Geographic for each of us so that we could find out more about … Continue reading »

Channeling My Inner Ballerina?

I didn’t really think I had any “dancer” in me.  But just in case there was some last glimmer of hope, I was again reminded that no, I cannot lift my leg onto a bar – at least not gracefully. Erin and I took a barre class for our Week 4_ “WeNever.”  I have wanted … Continue reading »

Barre? I thought you said BAR!

Yea, so I met Lisa at the Barre this week. I should have been suspicious when it was at 11am. But I have been known to throw back a few before 5.  Well in this case, I was supposed to throw back my legs!  Yes, Lisa and I thought we would try our hat at … Continue reading »

I’d Rather Sweat in Riverside

The only good that can come out of this week’s “We Never” experience of a thermal body wrap is that you all read this and never do it.  Part of the reason this particular thermal wrap was such a dud was the setting.  We bought the wrap on GroupOn and headed to Redondo Beach expecting … Continue reading »

Due Diligence!

So this week, we bought a Groupon coupon for a thermal body wrap. Sounds cool !  Well, when we thought we had the wrong address, we should have known we were in trouble.  Up the stairs, turn right – then left – around the corner and last door on the left.  And there we were, … Continue reading »

Nap Time!

After last weeks craziness, we thought we “needed a moment.”  Lisa found a beginners meditation class. Perfect!  I think Lisa has already told you about the awesomeness of the place we went – a little slice of paradise on Sunset Blvd in the heart of west LA!  It was extraordinary – take a look at … Continue reading »

Serenity on Sunset

I’m sure I’ve driven by this location on Sunset a hundred times before and never knew it was there.  Our time just always seems so precious, not worthy of being squandered on finding out what’s on the other side or behind a wall or off the beaten path.  Maybe because you figure nothing’s really there; … Continue reading »
