When Leigh and I got back from our craft fair extravaganza (okay, it sounds a bit more fun than it actually was) this afternoon she presented Ed and I with a couple bathbombs, creatively packaged in Chinese takeout containers. Mine was her newest concoction - packed with shea butter, vitamin e, and mineral oil and scented like a tropical vacation (coconut, mango, pineapple). I couldn't wait to hop into the bath - and when I did it was LUXURIOUS! The shea butter melted into the water and felt super-luxe. I also sparkle in the dark thanks to the glitter in the bathbomb. Leigh is a genius.
Speaking of geniuses - my husband also is one. He flexed his culinary muscle tonight and made salmon with nicoise vegetables and basil pesto and creme brulee for desert. Not too shabby if I say so myself. Let me know if you want the recipes.
Also - my bribe/limited time offer is still good. If you're one of the first 5 people to sign up as an actual/official followers of my blog - I'll mail you a bar of chipotle caramel/cream cheese frosting/gingersnap soap. Just email your mailing address to : firstname.lastname@example.org.
