Show & Tell

This is my first ever contribution to Mel's Show & Tell! For the past two years, most of the presents I've gotten from C have had a pampering/spa-like theme. It's really very sweet; I think he does it because actual spa treatments are so expensive, and not a part of our IVF finance plan. Anyway, for my birthday last year he gave me an expandable bath tray, so I can read in the tub without getting my books wet! It is my favorite thing ever. It has a coaster-like area for regular drinking glasses, and a compartment that stemware just slides into, for keeping wine glasses perfectly stable!

Bath Tray
I like to pair it with a nice glass of chianti (which, not coincidentally, is the name of the bathroom wall color) and my favorite bubble bath scent at the moment (black currant vanilla):

Bubble Bath
Everyone needs some pampering sometime, right? Which I am off to do now, so go check out the what the rest of the class brought here!

Ooooo....I am so jealous. That was a perfect gift. IVF costs are just crazy...so that was so nice of him. I love that...I will have to find that for myself. I just might show my husband this picture and make him feel all bad about not pampering me. (wink)Just maybe I can get it out of him....LOL

Ohh that looks so wonderful and relaxing! What a great gift!

I need one of those expandable trays!!! Very cool! We have an old claw-foot tub and nowhere to put our bath items (shampoo, soap, etc.).

Kristin said...

Oh that's really nice! A hot bubble bath, a great book, AND a glass of wine, what could be more relaxing. Hope you enjoyed your bath.
