I did manage to start the advent calendar and finish off one pocket, I did divert from the original project by allsorts, so instead of the red button and the red floss, I went with the red buttons but green floss. I like it, makes it really Christmasy for me.
A couple of you asked me about the Vanilla Honey Candles, I have to tell you, the reason I bought these at Walmart is because of the containers, I mean how adorable are these, and just think of how I'll be able to reuse them once the candles are gone?
But I gotta tell you, Vanilla Honey, OH.MY.GOODNESS. Even Curt walked into the kitchen on Saturday night and said "man what is that smell, it's so good". He couldn't believe it was the candles and actually told me to go back and buy more. Well you certainly don't have to tell me twice LOL
So if you're looking for these candles, check out your local Walmart Supercenter, I'm sure you'll find them there and they have tons of delicious scents, but I'm sticking with these, besides I want a couple more containers for my kitchen :)
One of my favorite things is to climb into bed at night, after the kids are asleep, and either read or watch some tv. But I'm never alone, because this precious little pug is always right there, she crawls up my side and right up to my thigh and then lays there, with that cute little squishy face.
And if I happen to have a little snack with me, she is right there willing to help me eat it. It's just the cutest thing listening to her smack those lips LOL
Oh to be a pet in this house is such an awful thing isn't it? I can't tell you just how loved the pugs are, they are a part of the family and one of our kids, they do naughty things and cute things and just keep us smiling day in and day out. Bella, above, is the pug we rescued back in Idaho and I'm so glad we did.
Kids are back at school this morning and I'm just looking around wondering what in the world happened to the house. Have you noticed that when you have these long weekends, with everyone home, that it looks like the house imploded on itself? I mean, there's toys and cans of pop, there's books and blankets and Wii games and all sorts of crumbs and leftover snacks and whatnot. It's quite a scary sight first thing in the morning, good thing is that with the kids not home I can have everything back to normal in no time at all AND watch it stay that way for at least a couple of hours.
That's exactly what I plan on doing right now. So you'll have to excuse me, I have a house begging for cleaning and a cookie jar asking for freshly baked cookies....I'm thinking some gingersnaps would go perfectly in there, maybe a way to make Fall arrive sooner.
Dinner tonight is Corned Beef and hash, it was supposed to be last night's dinner but I am still dealing with that summer cold and felt quite awful yesterday, so Curt ended up getting tacos for everyone.
Hope you're all having a wonderful Tuesday, and please remember to keep praying for everyone in the path of the Hurricane Gustav.
