Bubble Bubble Bath

on January 15, 2012

Honestly, I’m feeling pretty uninspired today. My husband worked all morning as I tried to carve out tiny spaces of time to get work done on some custom orders. It might as well have been a weekday, not the lazy Sunday I keep pining for that just never happens. The afternoon was spent barn shopping as I’m just too dissatisfied and stressed out about the pony’s current placement. That experience left me feeling even more stressed out and backed into a corner. We finished up with that much later than i had anticipated though so I just had to let it all sit in my belly while I rushed to the grocery store to get food for a dinner I had no desire to eat. It was the kind of day that should have ended with me relaxing in a bubble bath sipping a glass of my favorite Pinot. But since I’m stuck here in reality as opposed to some to romantic fantasy, this was as close as I could get.
It was no glass of wine, but it totally made my day ūüôā

  • Bubbles of all kinds!

While Noah finished dinner I started the tub with water and lots and lots of bubble bath.¬† I set up his bubble machine and filled it with regular bubble solution and dish soap.¬† Before Noah came into the bathroom I wanted to fill it with bubbles bubbles everywhere!¬† I did however skip the manual bubble wands.¬† I knew I would be stuck blowing bubbles over and over for the next 30 minutes and after today, I just wasn’t up for it.¬† Turns out, we didn’t really need them.¬† I also let the tub fill way more than I usually do.

When Noah came running into the bathroom the air was already filled with bubbles as even more bubbles foamed near the top of the tub.  He was so excited!  No better night to do this with that dirty face too!


He working against¬†the wind trying to blow the bubbles himself!¬† Our cat has grown up with 3 dogs since he was weeks old.¬† It’s given him the best catdog¬†personality and no fear of water.¬† He likes to come in and check¬†on us during bathtime.


I think the extra dish soap helped make the bubbles extra awesome tonight.¬† And of course, the obligatory soap mohawk shot! Or “So-Hawk” as my husband calls it.
