What's the big deal about Young Living

Back to School – College Edition

Welp. It’s done. Both of my college kids are tucked away hours from home on their college campus. (I’m so glad they are together. I know they love each other enough to tattle to Mama if there are any unlawful shenanigans taking place. Right, kids? Right?!)

My boy was so much simpler to send off. I don’t mean less emotional. I mean his answer to almost every question about preferences was “I don’t care.”

Me: Do you want to take these C.S. Lewis wall quotes you got for your birthday to hang in your dorm room?
Him: I don’t care.

Me: Do you think you’ll need a new pillow?
Him: I don’t care.

Me: Do you want a bed skirt to cover the things you’ll be storing under your bed?
Him: I don’t care.

The girl, on the other hand, had many and sundry opinions about what was necessary for going away for college.

Schick Extreme 3 Razors for college

That meant specifically these pink Schick Extreme 3 razors we picked up at Walmart. (As an added bonus, Schick is giving away 4 prizes of $10,000 each when you post a selfie using #SchickSelfieSweeps! You better believe we are doing this! Somebody has to win, am I right?)

We finally got everything unloaded at her “new” apartment, which gave me the distinct feeling I had traveled back in time to 1963.

We unpacked and arranged and decorated and strung up flowery lights above her bed.

And here she is in her very own 1963 bathroom with her “must have” disposable razors.
