On My 12th Day of Christmas Baths

Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone has been able to enjoy time with their family, eat some good food and open a present or two.

I have had a wonderful day with my family.  I am so thankful to have 2 of the most thoughtful kids in the world and a loving supportive husband, not to mention my sweet little kitty and 2 dogs.  This girl has everything!

After a day of snacking, opening presents and talking to family, I finally made my way upstairs for my last day of Christmas baths.


I made a big cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, chocolate shavings, and a candy cane stirrer.  Isn’t this cup adorable? Thanks to my friend, Betsy, for such a sweet gift.

I took my new bluetooth shower speaker and turned on some music. This was a gift from my husband, somehow he knew I like listening to music while in the tub.


Finally, after my steaming hot water finished running, I tossed this Sakura bath bomb into the tub.  Yet another simple, yet sweet concoction from Lush.


I had the best Christmas a girl could ask for, not because I received this awesome Wonderwoman purse, but because I spent the whole day with my family.  I am truly blessed.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!


On My 11th Day of Christmas Baths

It is Christmas Eve! Can you even believe it? What’s even more unbelievable is that today is also my birthday! Woop woop.

I have had a great birthday. My husband and kids gave me a wonderful assortment of the best birthday gifts a person could ever ask for.


After opening my gifts, I was suddenly inspired to take my 11th Christmas bath.

Considering my gifts consisted of a bath caddy (from my sweetheart of a daughter), truffles, bath bombs, and perfume (my SON bought me Chance by Chanel), I’m sure they expected this to happen.

I filled my wine glass with some really sweet tea and brought a cupcake with me. I grabbed a book, my phone and a birthday bubble bar I bought previously from The Bomb Dot Com Bath Bombs

I placed my bath caddy on the edges of the tub and began running the hot water.  I crumbled the sprinkle-covered bubble bar into the running water and watched it explode into bubbles.


I only used a portion of the bubble bar and had plenty of bubbles to cover my birthday suit.  Lol. I put on some music from my phone, sipped my tea, gobbled down my cupcake and read my book. It was a perfect birthday bath.

Upon exiting my bathroom, I sprayed on some of my new perfume.  I smell heavenly,  just so you know.  I slid on a new pair of birthday slip resistant fuzzy socks. . . .no more sliding down the stairs for me.

Now to get back in the Christmas holiday spirit, we will watch Home Alone together.  It is my favorite Christmas movie, I laugh so hard every time I watch it: paint cans smacking the burglars in the face, the high pitched scream from the man with a tarantula on his face, feet getting tarred and hair getting torched. Christmas movies just don’t get any better than this. 

Merry Christmas Eve to all of you. I hope Santa comes tonight to visit you.  And to all of you December babies out there: Happy Birthday!

Slightly older,

On My 10th Day of Christmas Baths

On my 10th day of Christmas baths, I’m going to turn the AC back on. It’s a fine spring day here in Kentucky. ..oh wait, it’s winter.  Well, in that case I’m not sure if I should be rejoicing that I’m wearing short sleeves and ordering iced coffees or worrying about what winter will be like when it finally strikes. 

No point in worrying about the weather,  but it does put a (soggy) damper on my Christmas spirit.  So I will improvise and create my own winter wonderland. 

I will walk around tonight with just short sleeves so I can detect a chill in the air as I look at Christmas lights. I will play songs like Frosty the Snowman, Jingle Bells and Winter Wonderland to coerce my mind into thinking “Baby its Cold Outside”.

I will watch the movie “Jingle All the Way” with the AC cranked way up.  After I have laughed at Arnold, cheered for Turbo Man and sipped my hot chocolate,  I will head upstairs for my bath. 

I will use my Magic of Christmas bubble bar.  Doesn’t Lush think of everything? Bubbles, cinnamon sticks and glitter. I will hum “Jingle Bells” as I sip more hot chocolate from the tub.

Only 1 more night until Christmas, but I still have 2 more Christmas baths left to enjoy.

Until tomorrow,

On My 9th Day of Christmas Baths


I finally have all of my presents wrapped and tucked safely under my tree.  This seems like a big accomplishment, but considering Christmas is about 2 1/2 days away, I am finished just in the St. Nick of time. 

This time of year, every year, I feel like I should get “this” person just one more gift.  That leads me to think of “this person” also.  Then I realize it is enough. Whatever it is, it is enough. 

So tonight, I am going to enjoy my cup of coffee with International Delight Frosted Sugar Cookie creamer.  I am going to watch my Father Christmas Lush bath bomb fizz across my tub, and I will sleep comfortable in my bed with visions of sugar plums (or cookies) dancing in my head.


For the love of baths, bubbles, relaxing and pampering.
