How do we even begin to repay Babcia and Dziadek (Grandma and Grandpa) for their generosity and hospitality they've so graciously bestowed upon for the last forty days while we've been guests in their house, during our Chicago remodel? The kiddos are so comfortable at their house, they don't want to move into the new house for another month. There's no way we can truly ever thank Babcia and Dziadek enough; but, this weekend we tried.


We treated them to an all inclusive "Money Back Guarantee" spa getaway.


The spa was the girl's idea.


The "Money Back Guarantee" was my little investment banker's suggestion.


Together, all three kiddos, opened up shop in Babcia and Dziadek's backyard. Jay developed a business plan with discounted rates for longer treatments and even created a "customer service questionnaire" to plan for future improvements. The girls ran back and forth cutting cucumbers, warming up towels in the microwave and refilling the hand soaking tubs. We went through two industrial sized lotion bottles, three cucumbers and had to replace one towel (warning: towels in microwave can only withstand 30 seconds) during the two days of the all inclusive "Money Back Guarantee" spa getaway.





Money well spent! Babcia and Dziadek were so relaxed after their stellar spa getaway, they invited us to spend an extra week in their house. One more week of daily backyard spa services at their house until we can open up shop in our own Chicago backyard.

Pauline, I think the simple fact that you're there in Chicago, living in Chicago, now, is their dream come true.

So ... do I call to make an appointment, or what? 'Cause I'm thinking I could use a little spa treatment myself - and LM(Love Muffin), too.
