Hubby used the soap before he went to bed this evening and seemed kinda flustered. He said "It felt all lotion-y. Is it supposed to?" I asked him if he liked it and he was still a bit....I don't know....like 'man soap doesn't act like that' without saying those words. He said he liked it, but was just shocked by the feel. So yes, I think this formula is a go.
I've gotten a request for two soap scents....chocolate and gingerbread. Woot! Spent some time browsing my sites and placed an order this morning for the fragrance oils I will use, plus a couple others. I already have another order for FOs on the way, this one with a bunch of springtime scents.
The body butter from yesterday that I was so disappointed in has found its place as my feet-knees-elbows after shower lotion. Since it's thick and lasts so long maybe it'll do wonders on those rough spots. And if it's greasy in those areas, who really cares? I mean, it's winter so we're all covered up anyway. hehe
I just used some of the Nubian Heritage coconut-papaya lotion on my hands. Very nice! Shortly after I used some of the caramel lip balm from yesterday, and it made me laugh. I showered with Black Raspberry Vanilla soap, used Cherry Almond body butter on my feet-knees-elbows, used coconut-papaya on my hands, and caramel on my lips. LOL I wonder what I smell like to someone besides me??? Wish I could have worked in my Bella's Birthday lotion...it's feeling neglected the last couple days.
Nothing really exciting today. Made some soap, browsed some Etsy, got the last of the Christmas gifts ready to go. I have no Christmas spirit. None. Normally I'd be all panicked and depressed about that but this year it's just sort of a 'whatever' feeling. It all seems rather anti-climatic since my sister was already here. Well, we're supposed to get together at my brother's house Christmas afternoon but my sister won't be there, and my mom probably won't be there cuz she goes out less and less these days. I'd kinda like to just stay home and have a nice ham dinner for ourselves. Also kinda ho-hum because alot of our presents are already under the tree, which is new for us this year. Usually we do the Santa thing (yes, still!) and don't put them under until late Christmas Eve. For whatever reason, most are already out this year. I made the cookies and treats last week and we had them out while my sister was here. So that too makes it seem like Christmas has already come and gone. I don't know, just very blah this year.
We watched Jurassic Park tonight, first time on our year old big TV. Casey said they're watching in school, science class or something, so I thought 'why not?' and popped the DVD in. I used to absolutely LOVE that movie, was obsessed with, had every second memorized. As with most movies that you love then don't watch for a long time, I found alot of cringe worthy parts in it now. Hubby and I pointed out many 'why didn't he just blah blah blah' things. Even so, I still love the movie. The special effects are still fabulous, so just think how amazing it was back when it came out. It was probably like Avatar is now!
I have no plans for tomorrow. Maybe I'll camp out on the couch and watch Christmas movies. I absolutely have to watch Christmas Vacation, and I've been wanting to watch The Nativity Story again. I might as well force Charlie Brown and Rudolph too. Maybe. I don't know yet.
We'll see tomorrow.
