I guess I'll just have to grow my hair out. On my legs.

Yeah, that's right. I said it. I'm going crunchy folks.

Wal-Mart today. I went to buy just a few items. My total - over $100. WHAT!? Lorelai's formula (with which we are about to be finished) is expesive, got it. But $100? I went through the receipt and was astonished at what I found.

These boogers.....are almost $30 for TWELVE!!! WHAT?

Is having smooth legs really worth it? I'm thinking not.

Now I'm going to take my hairy legs to Sonic and buy a Diet Coke for $1.72.

THAT is not price gouging and is SO worth it.

Ha! How funny. I agree, razors are way to high and it isn't really worth it!!!!

This is exactly why I steal Wil's razor...

You use mens razors? Those have to be the most expensive kind! You're the bargain girl! Find a coupon or try these:

I'm a fan of the Gillette for Women Venus razors myself. GOOD LUCK!

Is that for a Route 44???? Ours are up to $1.82 or something like that.

I had to get off of them. Back when I was working part-time they were almost negating my paycheck.

Kami, I totally feel you...and I've searched for coupons for the mach 3. But those are the only ones I've found that don't cut me and work the best. JD uses them too, so it's nice that we don't have to buy different razor blades. Although, I have coupons for the Venus, so I'll try them and let you know what I think!

Brenda - it's only the large...I need to start going at happy hour!

I use Mach 3, too, and wasn't recently astonished by the price increase, too! So, I bought some ghetto brand at the Commissary - Persona, or something. Well, the blades rusted and I had a few cuts. Now I don't know what to do. With no boy around, I guess it doesn't matter too much, right? Oh, and the Venus is ok, but I think the blades go dull really quickly...and I'm no Sasqwatch! (sp?)

Your live traffic feed is freaky, but cool!
Hope LOrelai is all better by the way.

Thank you so much for your sweet encouragement! Phoebs is still running a fever, but it's in the high 100's, low 101s... nothing to panic about. I just hate to see my happy little girl so sad!
If she's still running one tomorrow, we're headed to the pediatrician. She actually had a UTI at 8 weeks, so I'd heard of them on babies... but I'm hoping this one will just run its course!

Hi R, I've been a ssr for a while now and wanted to respond. I totally agree with you on the razors, my hubby and I use the mach 3 carts which fits into the venus and they are sooo much! He just started buying disposible razors and they are more affordiable! My sonic has 'happy hour' where all drinks are buy one get one! Only in NC =)

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I've been looking at yours now - and it's so cute!
Your daughter is precious. I love the name Lorelai. Probably especially since I just finished watching two episodes of Gilmore Girls which I L-O-V-E!
Nice to meet you!
