It was a Prell of a good day



Today was our first soccer game this season. It was a crisp, sunny morning--perfect weather! Spencer and IV played well, but the team still lost. Our guys just don't get aggressive at the goal. Hopefully, we can get a win next week!
After soccer we ran a few errands- couldn't find the new Star Wars Wii game (Unleashed)- shame on me for waiting too long. I'm sure my brother will find a copy-- he always seems to "know a guy"....
We visited a friend in the hospital, did our shopping and then visited Nana and Boppa for pizza and some laughs. While shopping at a salvage/junk store today, I found a bottle of Prell shampoo. Do you remember that? I opened it and took a big whiff-- I looked like a junkie sniffing like that and grinning my fool head off. I told Spencer to smell it and I explained that my grandma (Nana's Mom who has been gone 14 years now) always smelled of Prell and Oil of Olay. A few minutes later I went back to the aisle and sniffed it again. What the hell, it was only $1.95, I bought it. Nuts? Maybe. But it made me happy.

I so love the smell of Prell, unfortunately my scalp doesn't like it. Hmmm, maybe wear it as cologne.
Great soccer pics. Kind of liking the color of his uniform.

It is crazy what certain scents can remind you of isn't it.

I say nostalgia is definately worth $1.95. Glad you splurged ;)

I too would have bought it. My granny smelled of Ben Gay! Love the soccer photos. They will win next week!!

Oil of Olay reminds me of my Nana, too. :) I used it for a while until my stupid eczema made me have to switch to Eucerin.

Also, Estee Lauder perfume. :)

aww....i think that was really sweet. I get that way sometimes, but I can never quite name the smell, I just know that every now and then, I get a whiff of "grandma." LOL. maybe I should find some prell and see if that is my unidentified smell. LOL
