How come no one will call all day long but as soon as I lay down on the couch, the phone starts ringing off the hook?

Oh well. I managed about an hour of sleep in between phone calls. I feel worse now though than I did before I took the nap!! LOL!!!! Time to fire up the coffee pot.

Curious: Which candles do you like better? Slatkin & Co. (Bath & Body Works) or Yankee Candle?

I'm a candle nut. I have an entire end-table filled with candles and we are filling up another one. I have always preferred Slatkin & Co. ones from Bath and Body. They smell much more fragrant to me and I like their scents better in general. Their Fresh Balsam and Evergreen candles are my favorites! I know a lot of people like Yankee Candle so I am wondering if I'm missing something.

If you like Yankee, which scent is your favorite? Maybe I will give them another shot. It's that time of year where I need to start buying Christmas/winter candles!

I hope you all are having a good day.
Thinking of you, xmas. Keeping you in my prayers!!

Be MERRY!
Bless her heart, I bet she is an excellent helper =]

I am going to relax for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I have an appointment early tomorrow so I will have to get up relatively early to get ready.
Haha!! That is too cute about your friend's son
Enjoy your evening!!

Sunny with crispy air, and kinda chilly in the morning. ^^ I hope that you guys have had more entertaining day than me - writing the essay. I'm now waiting for my friend to come. She is trying out some new recipes she came across lately and she has made a cake using one of them tonight so we are going to 'test' it, heh. Have a lovely and cozy evening everyone!
Yum!! Happy cake sampling!!

I'm hooking up with the wife tonight (near the office here in just a bit) and we are going out for dinner and maybe do some window shopping at the mall nearby. I saw on the mail yesterday, a buy 2/ get 2 for free, Yankee Candle coupon, we might use that tonight. We might also stop by the Godiva Chocolate store and get some chocolate dipped strawberries and such....

I'll talk to ya all later~
Hope you & the Mrs. have a lovely night!!

I like them all, different scents from different companies. I even like Colonial- bought one on clearance last week- Falling Leaves! Love it!!
I just always make sure it's a strong enough scent, so it burns nice.

Three is a great age, I love the things they say when they are that young.
I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow!
