MGM Gold Strike Casino: The Perfect Girlfriends Getaway Part 4

This post is brought to you by MGM Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica.

By the time we got back to our room on Friday night, we were both pooped. A long drive combined with a very filling dinner made us ready for bed. I know my bed was very comfortable. I slept so good! Although we both set an alarm because we had an early spa appointment for Saturday morning, we both were awake before the alarms went off. We decided to order room service for breakfast so we didn’t have to leave the room.

Room service breakfast!

Room service breakfast!

I called to order our breakfast, and it seemed like only about ten or fifteen minutes later we could smell it coming down the hall. The server brought it in on a rolling table, and set it up in between the beds. So, we sat on the edge of our beds to eat.And yes, again, it was sooooo good. I had grits, fried eggs, bacon, and biscuits. Elaine ordered the same thing. We shared a pot of coffee, banana bread and a fresh fruit platter. You would think that we wouldn ‘t be able to eat it all after the dinner at Chicago Steakhouse last night, but yeah, we got it done! NO, none of it was gluten free, but I was hungry so I ate.

Not long after breakfast, it was time for my spa appointment. I have never had a massage, or visited a spa before, so I didn’t know what to expect. The masseuse knew what she was doing, though, so it was a very good experience. I got undressed and got on the massage table, and she helped me get turned over on my stomach. I have not laid on my stomach in almost three years, and I was so afraid to do it, but once I got turned over, it did not hurt at all.

You didn't think I was going to show ME without the clothes did you?? LOL

I’m all ready for my massage. You didn’t think I was going to show ME without the clothes did you?? LOL

My spa experience included a 25 minute massage and a sugar body scrub. The massage was another little bit of heaven, and helped to release some of the tension in my muscles. That was something I really needed. Then the sugar scrub? OH! Honey, if you have never done this before, you really need to go and experience it. The masseuse rubbed the hot sugar and oil into my whole body, from neck to feet. It was a great exfoliating combination.

When the massage and scrub were over, I wrapped up in a sheet and walked down to the shower. It stayed in that shower for about thirty minutes to get all the oil off of me, LOL! The whole experience was so relaxing, I felt like I had to go take a nap afterwards. I only got to rest for about an hour, though, before it was time for our afternoon tour.
