There is a ginor­mous bath­tub in my parent’s bath­room. We call it “mom’s tub” and it’s rumored that it was a large per­cent­age of the rea­son my par­ents decid­ed to buy our house 5 or so years ago. To be hon­est, it’s kind of a pain in the ass to fill with water and some­times the hot water runs out before the tub is even close to full, but talk about first world prob­lems, right?

Any­ways, I don’t use my parent’s bath­room or bath­tub very often, but this sum­mer I had the plea­sure of being left home alone for three weeks while my par­ents went on vaca­tion. It was a glo­ri­ous three weeks of sum­mery free­dom and funem­ploy­ment and con­sist­ed of a lot of late nights drink­ing on my back patio with friends. One night, I had a few friends over and after a drink or ten we decid­ed it was bub­ble bath time. Calm down, every­one had or bor­rowed bathing suits.



It was the mid­dle of August so we didn’t real­ly care about the tem­per­a­ture of the water, only that there were TONS of bub­bles and we could all squeeze in at once. We suc­ceed­ed, with pho­to evi­dence to prove it, and while I may have slipped on my way out of the tub with a bloody toe to show for it, we had a freak­in’ fab­u­lous time.

The moral of the sto­ry? Decem­ber 5th is Nation­al Bath­tub Par­ty day! While I high­ly rec­om­mend it involves friends, bub­bles and bathing suits, you might also try hav­ing a par­ty of one. Here’s an alter­na­tive sug­ges­tion: Stop by to to wish us a hap­py bath­tub par­ty day on your way home from work tonight, pick up one of our new win­tery scent­ed Wyk can­dles and some Bath Tea, head home and have a nice relax­ing bath­tub par­ty for one? Sounds like heav­en to me.

...or this? Your call.

  • I’m glad you like my bath tub pho­to for I sell it on Red Bub­ble art site and Fine Art Amer­i­ca site. You could at least give me cred­it for the pho­to you stole!

    • I didn’t real­ize that prints were for sale. I’m hap­py to cred­it you for the pho­to or remove it, if you prefer. 

      Sor­ry for the reap­pro­pri­a­tion, if we had known you were sell­ing it, we would not have used it with­out per­mis­sion.

So, what do you think?
