A couple of days ago, after taking 5 children to the Walmart Supercenter, I drove by Bath and Body Works and saw the sign in the window: Buy 3, Get 2 Free.

Reasoning that I could keep two and give three away as Christmas gifts, yet feeling slightly guilty about indulging myself, but also missing the Blackberry Amber scent (which, sadly they don't even carry anymore) that I loved so much and ran out of a couple of weeks ago, and also not wanting to pass up a good deal, yet not wanting to bother John at work with a phone call to ask his blessing to spend money on unnecessary purchases, I justified a stop, and dragged everyone into Bath and Body Works, coming out with 5 products for less than $30.

I ended up forgetting something at Wal-mart, and asked John to stop by on his way home from work that day for me. When he walked in the door, guess what surprise he had? Yes, he was carrying a Bath and Body Works bag, containing 5-for-the-price-of-3, lotions and gels, one for each of his daughters, and two for his wife. I now have 10 Bath and Body Works products for the price of 6! Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas this year?

So last night Hope came out of the bathroom, smelling like Sweet Pea scented body lotion. She runs to her daddy and gives him a hug. He says, "Mmmm, Hope, you smell like Sweet Pea."

To which she replied, "That's because I just went to the bathroom."

Because I worked for the company (VS actually, but don't tell Nanny!) I have some insider info for you. Twice a year when they have their semi-annual sale, they sell all their discontinued lines. Stock up because they are really cheap then too!

So funny, that sale reels me in every time. Although, I leave with wayyy more than 5 bottles! I'm such a sucker! LOL
