My Mother Would Be Appalled

I'm going to try something new. (My mother would be appalled if she knew I was going to talk about this topic with the entire Internet, but just promise not to tell her.)

I'm going to try waxing. 

I have had one waxing session before in my life. It was not in a very tender place. It was a very spur of the moment decision and everything went fine. Of course, I really have nothing to compare it too, but I think the end result was what it was supposed to be and I was not in pain, although my skin was a bit red.

Now, I'm going all in. There is a new place opening in Plano called the European Wax Center. All they do is waxing. And they use a different technique than most places.

Here are the big differences:

  • Their wax contains no alcohol. It's made of 100% natural beeswax.
  • The wax is applied at warm bath water temperature. No stinging temperatures.
  •  No Double Dipping - some places use the same wax on multiple clients. Ick!!

  • One of the other things I loved is that they offer a variety of ways to purchase their services. The two that appealed to me the most were . . .

    Unlimited Waxing - One Year, One Price and Unlimited Waxing

    Pre-Paid Waxing - First Time Clients can get 3 FREE services when they pay for 9 upfront.

    Are you intrigued yet? Well, you can get unlimited waxing FREE at your first appointment during premiere week (February 14 - 17) at the European Wax Center located at the Preston Park Village. Just call 972-905-3789 and make your appointment now.

    I'm serious. I'm going all in. I'll be back after my first session to tell you what I think . . . just don't tell my mama!

    Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

    There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

    Apparently today, I have something to say.

    I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

    One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

    A Christmas Post

    This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
    I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
    But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
    Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
    Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

    AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

    Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

    Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

    Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
    Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
    Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
    Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
