Bring Back my Bar January 2012

This is the time of the year everyone is buzzing about Scentsy.  Why you ask?  Well who would not be excited about DOUBLE hostess rewards and BRING BACK MY BAR?  Those of you that are new to Scentsy are saying huh?  About a month ago Scentsy began counting votes for everyone’s favorite retired scents.  Loyal Scentsy fans voted in hopes that their favorite scent (the one they have been hoarding in the back of their closets and cupboards, it’s okay I do it too) will make the list!  Well the votes are all counted and here is who made the list.  But first let me remind you that these bars are only available for the month of January and then they are GONE….oh yes GONE…..

It’s begining to look a lot like Christmas

Welcome,

I have decided to start this blog to share two of my favorite things in the world, my family and my Scensty!

I don’t know about your family, but here in the Cappell house Christmas is in full Swing.  My husband has finally given in to the fact that I must play Christmas music EVERYDAY!  and I love it when my house is decorated for the holidays.  It’s one of my favorite times of the year!

The lights went up this weekend (even though it was *80 degrees here) and although it didn’t “feel” like a winter day we put on our shorts, and flip flops and made the best of it as we poured on the Christmas spirit.  The kids were so excited to see the lights go up, and to be able to decorate their own little Christmas tree that proudly adorns the dresser in their room. I have a little confession, while the boys think it’s really cool to have “their own” tree, the real reason I got them one to begin with was so that all the wonderful Spiderman and other hosts of Superhero ornaments would be safely tucked away and never see it to mommy’s I’m mean the family tree.  I am so fussy with my Christmas tree that I don’t even let my husband put on the lights! Of course I let the kids help me decorate, but once they go to bed I rearrange it LOL.  Ever seen that episode of Friends with Monica and her tree? yup that is so me.

We hung the stockings, put up the Nativity Scene, and  hung the wreaths.  One lesson I learned last year is that if you get your Christmas tree too early it will not likely make it to Christmas day green …so that will have to wait until next week.  Then at least I will be to enjoy it for more than just one week out of the year.

I am always excited to get things ready for the holidays, but I have been waiting for months to finally be able to warm my all time favorite Scentsy scent CHRISTMAS COTTAGE!  OMG is it good!!!  the officially Scentsy discription is: A Cozy, inviting blend of Valencia Oranges, raspberries, cloves, and spices…..Ummmm…Heaven!  okay I added the heaven, but trust me it is just like walking into one of those great Christmas Boutiques.  Once the decorations were up I popped in some Christmas Cottage into my Prancer warmer, and the newest member to join my Christmas decorations Bluster.  Within a half an hour the house was filled with the scents and sounds of the season!  I haven’t turned it off since!
