Make Your Own Bath Bombs at Buff City Soap in Toledo

“Awesome”, “the coolest”, &, “surprisingly not too girly!”! So, what was supposed to be a “mommy & me” day with my youngest quickly became a sibling day once all three kiddos caught wind of what we had planned. And what exactly had we planned? To make bath bombs at Buff City Soap! The kiddos legit loved it! I was a bit shocked, even my tween boy had fun mixing up the bath bombs & his takeaway; it’s surprisingly not too girly! Yup, he had his reservations at first, but anything with the word “bomb” in it can’t be too girly, right?! Lol! Here’s how our awesome experience went down….

The satisfaction of checking off a task on an ever evolving To-Do-List is like sinking your teeth into a candy bar after fasting for a week! Ahhh, that taste of sweet success and feeling of swimming in accomplishment, that is until you see all the tasks you have yet to fulfill and just like that it’s like someone peed in your pool of accomplishment. Why do we do that to ourselves? Why do we continue to allow yesterday’s or last month’s uncompleted tasks and goals to haunt us? Why do we only allow ourselves the tiniest taste of sweet success and then stew in a pee pool of disappointment and dissatisfaction over uncompleted tasks and goals? Are we gluttons for punishment or is the system flawed?
