Now that our stock is almost depleted again and it’s time for me to replenish the soap supply, Bath & Body Works fortuitously debuts a new line that I’m sure will satisfy my spoiled spouse.
American Grown is a collection of hand soaps and body gels inspired by great American destinations. Formulated with invigoratingbotanicals grown in the U.S., American Grown products condition, rejuvenate and stimulate the skin. Packaged in big, bold and colorful bottles, each hand soap and shower gel transports you to the American locale from which it draws its name.
In honor of my Libby, Montana-born/Spokane, Washington bred husband, I think I’ll add the Montana Sky and Washington Apple hand soaps to my shopping list. Products are also available in Napa Grape (we honeymooned there), Siesta Key Lemon and Savannah Mint scents. American Grown hand soaps retail for $6.60 and shower gels will set you back a mere $12.50.
Graham, you’re so vain…you probably think this blog post is about you.
Earlier this week, Mama Spoiled Pretty called to check in…for the seventeenth time that day. I was just finishing washing my hands, and I told her so – as we have a TMI relationship. Then, she asked me what seemed like the most inane question ever…
“Did you sing ‘Happy Birthday’ while you washed your hands?”
Huh? What in the world does the Happy Birthday song have to do with hand-washing?
She explained that singing the song in your head ensures that you’re spending an adequate amount of time sudsing up.
Just to make sure this wasn’t some ‘gang members are killing people in Walmart parking lots’-esque urban legend that’s been debunked on snopes.com, I did a little investigative journalism. And it turns out that Mama Spoiled Pretty is a know-it-all, tough as it is to admit.
