Two Meatballs: A Spahhhhhhhhh-mazing Weekend!

So Jenny has been out of town for almost a week now!


Ugh!!!  But I’ve done a lot to keep myself busy!  I’ve started embracing my curls and killing fashion!



Saw an old pal of Kelly’s and a Meatball supporter!



Swimming with my babies!




Then, I had a yummy date with my sister at Zest!  We split the CC, my newest obsesh!  Aren’t we the cutest!?


Then, me and Lauren had some fun with curtains!



I went and worked out with Sandy!



I’ve been cooking up a healthy storm!


Anna and I tried the new healthy restaurant in Raleigh, Kamado Grille!


Give this place a few more weeks…they had some major kinks to work out…like giving Anna salad dressing….ever!


Then Kelly and I had a brilliant idea…lets go to the beach for a weekend.  We booked a room and at Zest realized we hadn’t even looked up the weather.  We looked it up and there were lightning bolts on every single day! Ugh so we cancelled that…no need to make that mistake twice am I right ladies!? So then we had the most brilliant idea of all time!


Time for a spa weekend!  This is always my dream…go to The Umstead, spend the night, lay by the pool, get spa services and room service!  And we made it happen!  First we spent friday night together going to the mall, dinner and having a Melissa McCarthy movie marathon!


Then Saturday morning we packed our stuff…


And headed to my favorite relaxation spot on earth….


Look at this view!


Quick change!


And we are off to the most gorgeous pool!


Can you feel how relaxed we are!?!?  Then we spent some time enjoying our beautiful room before heading off to our spa treatments!


On our way, we did the self guided art tour!


And stopped every single person to take a picture of us!


We signed in and were given a tour of all the amenities that came along with our spa visit…there was a lounge…


A whirlpool…


A sauna…



A steam room…can you find us!?


Bahahahah!  And then there was the I don’t remember what she called it shower that was 72 degrees!


I didn’t think that 72 degrees was cold….it is!  But it felt amazing! And it felt like standing under a waterfall! This was my fav!  Our tour guide Anna was the living best!


We grabbed some spa water and headed to the ladies lounge…it was almost time for my Milk and Honey Wrap and Kelly’s Swedish Massage!


Then, Derrick, the greatest man who has ever lived came and got me and brought me to the treatment room…first stop, the bathroom…this is a 75 minute treatment and mommas got 2 bladders!



Even the bathroom is amazing and thank gah I wore unders bc these robes were a little snug for this meatball. #getittogetherumstead

Derrick gave me a dry brushing, sugar scrub, wiped it off with hot towels, slathered me in milk and honey, wrapped me up tight and then gave me an epic foot massage.  Then I hopped down and took an incredible shower with water coming at me from every direction.  Rich people, is this what your life is like….I want in!!!!  Then I dried off, hopped back in the bed and he rubbed me down with lotion.  HEAVEN i tell you.  He didn’t want to get in trouble by taking all the pictures I was begging him to take, so I just snapped this one of the heavenly bed after I was done!


75 minutes was way to short and he told me that most people book a massage immediately following a body treatment #dammit #nowyoutellme so next time that is happening for sure.  This was the best exfoliation I have ever had, I had baby skin!!!  Then I went out to the meditation garden to wait for Kelly!


This place is soooooo beautiful and calming!



Kelly loved her massage!  We then went back to the room and ordered room service!


To cut costs, we ordered from the kids menu!



I love room service!  Everything was super yummy!  Then we just talked all night and watched SNL and went to bed somewhat early!  Then next morning Kelly got a facial and I took a bath and a shower in our room!!!  It was so indulgent…i need to remodel my house!  Then we went to the pool before we bid the Umstead farewell!



It was hot this day!  And before you knew it, it was over!  We packed up and paid the bill!

Goodbye Umstead…it was a pleasure, it was spaaaaantastic, spaaaunbelievable, spaahhhhnowedidnt, spaaaaahhhhyeswedid!  It closing, it was Spapendous!  What an amazing way to spend time with your bester.  Alone time is such gift and doing it at the Umstead was such a well needed splurge!   We just got to talk for hours and be together and I just love you Kelly.  Spending time with you is my happy place you little angel.  Xoxo times infinity. Until we spa again in Pinehurst!   Jenny, come home!  Love you guys!



  1. It was the most amazing weekend ever! You nailed using spa 50 ways!!! Time together is the most important thing! No matter where we are! But I must say The Umstead is going to be hard to beat!!! Can’t wait for pinehusrt! I love you so much sis!!!!!
