The Benefits of Handmade Soap


My husband’s best friend was up visiting last summer, and we happened to go into a store that sold handmade soap.  “Have you guys ever tried handmade soap?” he asked us.  When we told him no, he said “I’m telling you: you need to try it.  You will never want to use anything else again.”  We decided that it was worth a try, and purchased a 7$ bar of soap.  Since then, we have not used anything else, although we have found better deals on natural soap at flea markets, online, etc.

Fat Kid Gets Waxed (Oldie but Goodie)


I made this hilarious video a few years back, in which I wax my overweight cousin’s chest, armpits, and back.  Do you think I am a horribly mean person?  Well think again, this entire video was his idea (even the title, “Fat Kid Gets Waxed”); I was just happy to oblige.  He actually really loved the end result (after the tears and pain).  In fact, he has been asking me to wax him again recently.  I think it is pretty dang hilarious.  I hope you enjoy!
