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~
I just cut that coupon out! They mail out great coupons don't they? The customers get as good of a deal as the employees do.
Your plans sound great, have fun tonight!!!

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.
I know what you mean. My phone rang 3 times on my lunch break. I just want to watch my Dr. Who reruns in peace!

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 like Yankee Candle. There are so many scents that I love. Some of my favorites are Home Sweet Home, Sage & Citrus, Midsummer's Night, Pink Sands and Clean Cotton. Some of my favorite Holiday scents are Autumn Wreath, Sugared Apple, Balsam & Cedar, Christmas Cookie and Sparkling Cinnamon. Just to name a few, lol. I could go on and on.

Good evening, everyone. How are you all doing? Hope you're all well and enjoy your day so far. I've just been trying to relax and spend time with my kids.

What are you plans for this evening? We're going to do a quick dinner here soon and then we're going to carve pumpkins, before I lay down for nap for work tonight.

Tomorrow, after getting off of work, I have to go on a small field trip with EA to a local theater, where we will see a play. She is excited to be going. I work tonight and tomorrow night yet, then will have off Thursday night to spend Halloween with them and take them Trick-or-Treating. The kids are looking forward to that.

Well, I just wanted to check in and say hi. Hope you guys all enjoy the rest of your evening! Talk to you guys later tomorrow. Thinking of you all and praying for you all who need my prayers. God Bless and keep smiling!
