Get Real Monday

Randi has a great thing going on Mondays, and I’m joining in on this one. She wants to know what we all do to relax. Which is better than the time we had to post pictures of how messy our house was or what we looked like in the 80s. (I skipped the 80s one!)

But this one, I can totally do. The one thing I do to relax, is hang out here:


What, did you think I was posting a picture of ME in there?!

Anyway, I make sure there are no cute little boys around.

I light those blue candles in the corner.

(The water is a normal color, too, when it’s my turn)

I take along chocolate, a book, and a Diet Sprite.

And Spring Green Vitabath because it’s the best!

“The water is normal color”– you crack me up why not make your water match your candles???

But really – it is a wonderful way to relax. I love to do the same thing.

That sounds so nice. The tub in our current house, which we are still desperately trying to sell, is less than 5 feet long and so shallow that even if I could lay down in it, the water would barely come half-way up my sides. There is absolutely nothing relaxing about my tub.

That said, we’re planning on having a nice big jacuzzi tub in our next house, so relaxing is on the agenda. Just a few months away…hopefully!

Mmmmmmm, what a lovely looking tub. I miss the big garden tub we had in our old house. The little shower-tub combo we have now just isn’t the same.

I totally need to do the same thing. Moriah made one for herself and lit all of our “decorative” candles…I was jelous when I walked in afterwards to see the candles glowing…she still got in trouble for lighting those things though.

Ah – I wish I had a bath-tub. Only showers in this house.
Is it too late to participate? I know what I like to do to relax – but it only happens once a year in San Carlos :) – Sun – beach – fun with my Sweetheart.

Love that tub!! My mom would never come out if she had a tub like that:) She always ends up being in the tub for hours reading, for as long as I can remember.

I am beyond jealous! We’re living in a rental now that has this really tiny tub on an outside wall and a really small water heater. This adds up to one fill of warm water that cools in about 5 minutes and there’s no more hot water to freshen it. Sigh.

I had a lovely tub (though not a jacuzzi like yours) at our house that we recently sold and oh, man, do I miss it! I love long soaky baths with diet coke and a magazine.

Again. Sigh.

Oh well; we’ll move to Another State and when we build our home (as we’re planning on), then I will again have a lovely bathroom with a delightful tub.

Oh, and how cute are those kids, anyway????!!!??

I LOVE Spring Green Vitabath! My frugal nature won’t let me buy it very often, but one of my sisters treats me with a bottle every now and then. Mmmmmmmmmmm…… fresh and outdoorsy smelling. :)

I actually do some sweet relaxing when my kids are in the bath, believe it or not. They are entertained and CON-tained and besides the occaisional flood, all is well.
