Good thing we have our priorities straight

imageCatherine presented me with a small bottle of Bath & Body Works’ White Citrus body lotion following her recent trip to the mall with Basil.

“It’s for you. I think you’ll like it,” she said.

And she was right — it has a fresh, summery scent, a nice change from the lavender I’ve been wearing.

I thanked her, and said she shouldn’t be spending her babysitting money on me.

“Oh, it wasn’t my money,” she replied.

  1. LOL. I bet it does smell good, I like the sound of it. I love B&BW lotion. I’m visiting today from Thumping Thursday. 🙂

  3. Plus citrus is a natural bug repellant. There could be another agenda…. like “lets turn mom into a walking citronella candle to keep the bugs away when we BBQ”. just sayin..
