It was a long day at work, your feet are tired and you can’t wait to get out of your heels. Your work attire is itching to retire to the laundry and those soft slippers and the freshly laundered night gown is calling your name. After a long day of work I can’t wait to get out of my work clothes and into something loose fitting and comfortable. I especially love my fluffy white slippers that cushion my feet as I walk over tiled floor (very common in Florida). Even better is when your sleepwear has that undeniable smell of Downy. I’ve been a Downy user for as long as I can remember. I’m one of those people that use fabric softener in the wash and fabric sheets in the dryer. Downy softens and freshens all in one load.
Downy is challenging you to find the softner things in life. Life can often be hard, especially for mothers (and fathers) who are running to drop off kids at school, help with homework, make dinner, take kids to sports, etc. All of this on top of a full time job sometimes gets a little tough. That is why I cherish the more relaxing moments in life. A long hot bath with bubbles and just a bit of silky soft bath salts definitely hits the spot. However one of my favorite “soft” moments in life is some down time with my daughter reading a book.
Downy Down Time with My Daughter
Now that Honey is in 2nd grade she is suppose to read each night. Though she is an avid reader for whatever reason she hates being “forced” to read. So to get her motivated I told her that the 20 minutes of reading would be our time. Now she reminds me everyday that we need to read. Our new tradition always involves a good book and our favorite blanket. You will often find Honey and I
fighting over sharing the blanket. It is so soft and cuddly and just feels amazing. It is even more enjoyable after it has been laundered with my Downy routine of fabric softener and fabric sheets. It just smells so fresh and is so soft that we love to just snuggle up together.
Another way to “soften” our lives is lighting. This goes hand in hand with our reading. I’m currently working on switching out all the light bulbs in the house to not only energy saving light bulbs but “daylight” bulbs. We find the white light is just more pleasing then the yellowish tint that we have always had.
Downy Softside of Life
At is that time of the year sports and football have arrived full force. So this fun Softside of Life from the Downy Facebook page really got my attention. “Who’s your teams biggest rival?” Well since we hubby is a diehard Redskins fan I’m going to have to go with the Dallas Cowboys as he tells me all the time my favorite two teams are the Redskins and whoever is play the Cowboys.
