In Which I Used The Kate Spade Fancy Soap

I was supposed to go to a Mom's Night Out with a blogging friend and others last night but it ended up just being another Mom's Night In with three very loud and messy boys. After everyone was pajama-ed and in bed, I was thisclose to collapsing from exhaustion. But the quiet house and my achy back and head led me to take a nice, hot bath.

First I had to clear the entire tub area of all reminders of children. You know, to set my mood. Then as I was looking for some bubbles (preferably not of the kid-kind) or bath salts, I picked up my frou-frou box of Kate Spade soaps. They were a gift from when I was in my friend Jen's wedding, almost 3 years ago. But they were wrapped so perfect and snug in a pretty green and white box. I even still have the matching pretty green and white gift bag that looks like a real Kate Spade handbag, only it's a gift bag. But it's a Kate Spade gift bag.

Anyway.

After the night I had, these lily-flowered-couture-smelling soaps longed to be used and not left just for show, tucked away in their pretty box forever. If any an occasion, twas now. I surely would not smell of little children after using my fancy soaps.

And after my hot bath I felt much better. Almost like a getaway. Still tired Mommy, but fancy smelling now.

  2. I tend to hoard my "good soaps" for special occasions, too. Sounds like a luxurious way to end a rough day.

  5. Do Whatever it takes girl! LOL! I tend to hoard the soaps as well, I dunno why. And usually I bathe with the baby soap. I got into this habit when Zoe was born and I couldn't think of anything perfumy coming into contact with my newborn. One day I will smell like a woman again and not a baby. he..he..

  8. I'll save all those special bubble baths and soaps that I receive as gifts and then forget I even have them.

    Glad you enjoyed the bath!

  21. Good for you Steph! The bath sounds like it invigorated you enough to at least go to bed peacefully relaxed rather than totally exhausted.
