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 6th, 7th and 8th Days of Christmas Baths

Let me just start by saying I really admire “real” bloggers and their ability to write and post everyday.  ‘Tis the Christmas season, therefore it is crazy busy around my house, as I’m sure yours is too.

My 6th day of Christmas baths started out with making candy and playing games with my family.  I invited everyone over and we made several batches of candies and cookies. We used so many bags of chocolate!!!! and took turns stirring the divinity.

Afterwards, we played a few Christmas Edition Minute to Win It games.  It was a rough and rowdy evening, but oh so much fun.

Late that evening, I finally took a bubble bath with my Lush Peeping Santa Bubble Bar.  It filled my water with so many bubbles and a festive reddish color.  It was the perfect ending to a perfect Christmasy day.

On my 7th day of Christmas baths, I woke up early and used a special rose scented soap.  I’m not usually into bar soap, but this package was so heavenly and angelic that I had to buy it.

I did not have long to soak because I was heading to the Indianapolis Zoo for the day.  It was an early birthday celebration for myself.   I love orangutans just about as much as I love my husband and our 2 children.  At the end of our fabulous orangutan viewing, they bought me a baby of my own.  Well sort of.

Today is my 8th day of Christmas baths.  I have spent my day finishing my shopping and finally wrapping presents.  It feels good to see presents wrapped under the tree.  I divided up my stash of Lush bath bombs and Bath and Body Works gifts for my sisters, neices and daughter.  I can’t wait to see them opened, smelled and eww and awed over. 
Tonight we watched Seinfeld’s Festivus episode together, it’s sort of a family tradition.  Then I headed to the bath with my Bath and Body Works Merry Berry Christmas body wash.

Only a few more days until Christmas!
I hope everyone is getting as excited as I am.  See you tomorrow!

On my 4th Day of Christmas Baths

On my 4th day of Christmas baths I am going to be tired.  I have to be honest with you guys, I’m going to get in late tonight.  I am going to the opening night of Star Wars.  That’s right,  I’m rocking the Leia buns today at work. 

Isn’t it part of the Christmas experience  to view a movie on the big screen with a big bucket of popcorn? Well, for me it is.  Although I have my tickets already, I will still be lined up outside with all the other Star Wars fans.  I will squeal as the movie starts and cheer for the heros.  I will clap and hollar as the credits roll at the end.

When the movie is over, my family and I will drive home and let out all of the “oh my gosh did you see how…can you believe she…wasn’t it cool when they….”

When I get home I will get our lunches ready for tomorrow and say my goodnights.  I will find this gift that I left for myself, an inflatable neck pillow for my tub.  I will say, “You know what Jesica, you deserve a relaxing soak after being such a hard worker and an awesome mom today”.  I will respond to myself, “The force is strong with this one. Take a relaxing soak, I shall”.

The 1st Day of Christmas Bath


 

Green Peppermint

On the first day of Christmas I used a lovely green bath bomb.

Hello all!  In honor of the Christmas season and my love of the 12 Days of Christmas song I am going to attempt to take a holiday bath of sorts for the next 12 days.  Yes, that is correct there are only 12 days until Christmas.  Don’t freak out, just take a bath and try not to think about all of the presents you have left to buy.

Tonight I used a bath bomb that I purchased from The Bomb Dot Com Bath Bombs.  It was called Green Peppermint, and it was BIG. This baby fizzed like a pro and practically made laps around my tub.  It was a lovely way to start my 12 days of Christmas baths.

I know you are anxious to see what is in store for tomorrow, so come back to my blog and see what happens on my 2nd day of Christmas bath.
