Often, other families in homeschool groups we are in often get the idea that we are a "Crunchy Family".
(there's more -- little matching zipper bags to go with, etc....so I am not sure how to tally that.....crunchy cuz I am buying homemade & handmade? helping other WAHM?
But I do have more than I *need*.... - so maybe that is a crunchy point draw....)
Many of my clothes are handmade (+crunchy points), and many, many are patchwork "hippie" skirts. (+++crunchy points):
But....I also have quite a bit from Old Navy (-----crunchy points)
Overall, I'm baffled....and ashamed....or ashamed that I am not ashamed.
WHO would want to NOT use shampoo & Body Wash?
Have you SMELLED some of the deliciousness out there????
When it comes to Shampoo, I am to www.Philosophy.com as an addict is to a crack house.
No matter what I do, I can't stay away. And every season brings new treats, new scents. Their Fall line is coming out now. I LOVE FALL! Pumpkin & Spice & Everything Nice!!!!
(Oh Hey.....this means Starbucks should be coming out with their Pumpkin flavored stuff too.....yuuummmmmm.....(--- crunchy points...)
Every day is a scent delight. I can't wait to wash my hair with this stuff! I love it.
For a few relatively uninterrupted minutes each day (relatively - this last shower where this post started forming in my mind had only had two interruptions - one from my mom 'cuz DH had called and wanted to know if I wanted a new antennae for the TV (that was odd) and one when oldest daughter came home and wanted to let me she had gotten home but then stayed in the bathroom to talk until I finally said,
"Um, go 'way!"
and she said,
"But it smells SO GOOD in here!"
I get to revel in the sweetness and either ponder nothing at all, or various online conversations, or whatever I want.
When it is a Pink Frosted Layer Cake Day (when Pink Frosted Layer Cake arrived, 9yo dd took one whiff and said, "Can I go wash my hair?") I come out of the shower feeling like a pink cupcake. Yum. I couldn't imagine giving that up willingly. (-------minus 1 million crunchy points)
Honestly, the thing is, I never tried to be crunchy or not.
I just do what I like.
So, I guess I fail at crunchy.
But only sort of....
I also ONLY use handmade, WAHM soap:
Or am I just a sheeple consumer? >.<
