Have a Scentsational Day!

I am hosting my first ever Scentsy basket party and I am super excited about it. As of tomorrow, September 1st, there will be new warmers available and about 14 new scents available. I received my basket party goodies yesterday, from my Scentsy Consultant, Mandy Gold, and have been sniffing all these new scents like crazy! I am aboslutely in love with one of the new scents called Kahiko Hula. I think it just might be my new favorite. And I have also picked out the scent I believe I will use for fall.....Autumn Sunset.

Now I know I have bashed Scentsy and people are probably wondering why I am hosting a basket party, and I will tell you this. I am hosting this basket party so I can get this.........

Isn't it gorgeous? I just love it and am dying to have it. I know I have to sell a lot of Scentsy in order to get it for free, but I am even okay with paying full price for it. For each one of these Love, Life, Hope warmers that are sold, Scentsy will make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Isn't that amazing? Now what would you like to order? :0) If you are interested in seeing the new warmers and scents, please go on over here, and look for my name in the Open Parties box. Remember, you won't be able to see all the new things until tomorrow, September 1st. I can guarantee once you see them tomorrow you will just have to have one. :0)

Hope you all have a Scentsational Day!

These kids are my world!

Where to begin? I have been feeling down in the dumps, frustrated, sad, irritated, mad, probably every emotion these past couple of days. I won't mention any details but I do know that no matter how I am feeling, these two kids of mine can make my day better.
How can you not smile when JL tries to make a funny face and you get this.....

This kid cracks me up! He told me this morning on my way to work, I had my heels on that are the peek-toe ones, and only 3 of my toes show. Anyways, he said..."mom, why do you only have 3 toes?" SIGH~kids say the darnest things. Couldn't help but smile at that.

Then there is my baby girl Jaycee and whenever I look at her she just melts my he♥rt. Even if she makes a sad face I can't help but smile. It's so hard being away from her and having to work 8 hour days, but I know she is in good hands. She stays with her BFF, Auntie Amber and then I get amazing pictures throughout the day like this...

So many of you may know about me committing myself to the Susan G. Komen's 3Day for the Cure, 60 mile walk, that's right I said 60 mile, as in 6-0, in November. If you didn't know this, you can go here to read my personal story as to why I have decided to make this huge committment.

Anyways, walking 60 miles in 3 days is insane but it's all for a great cause! Although when I am done on day 3 and I have blisters the size of quarters I might just have to put the blame on my sister~in~law(SIL), Ambrosia!

Now I have been tryin' to prepare myself for this amazing journey by training. I have yet to be able to do all the miles they require in the training schedule week by week, but I have been walking! I have been walking with my team and also with.........MY HUSBAND!

When I first decided to do this walk, I got the vibe from my husband that he didn't really care. Boy was I wrong! He has been by my side thru all of this and he has been such a great motivator. There are times that I just don't have the motivation to go on my training walk and there he is saying, "You going walking today?" Then I feel like I have to go walk or else he will think I am slacking. Well, one night I asked him if he wanted to join me on my training walk. I had to walk 4 miles that night. He said yes! So we loaded up the kids. We put JL in the stroller and put Jaycee in the 'cozy rider' and off we went.

These 4 miles that we walked that night were great. We just talked and talked and talked. We don't do that too often but it was great to catch up with each other. I mean we talk and all, but when you are walking 4 miles, you got nothing else to do. I loved walking and talking with him. I loved it even more that he was supporting me with this 60 mile walk that I am preparing myself for. He even told me that we should start walking to go get our groceries. :) So now whenever I get the chance, I ask him to go walking with me. ♥

Not only does my husband support me in walking, but he is even all about PINK! If we go to the store and he sees something that has the pink breast cancer ribbon on it he will pick it up. I ordered a pink breast cancer bag and he stole it from me and uses it for work. Yep....had to order another one since he won't give me that one back. He even wears a "I love Boobies" pink bracelet from keepabreast.com when he is not at work. He is just as into this as I am even though he might not admit it. The best part.......a few weekends ago, I hosted a "Wii Open Tennis Tourney~ment". Everyone had to pick a partner and dress in team uniforms. John was of course my partner and I asked him if he would wear anything that I decided on. He said, "Sure!" I said, "Even if it's pink?" and he responded with, "yeah, I don't care!" So here was our uniforms.
We were all "PINKED" out and our team name was Wii~Hope! (as in we hope for to find a cure for breast cancer) We wore pink shirts, pink socks, pink headbands, and pink wristbands with the breast cancer ribbon on them! I thought for sure John wouldn't go for the uniforms, but he was all about them! I just L♥VE him! 

I couldn't have asked for a better motivator and support system. I definetely know that John will be by my side the whole way. I look forward to the many more training walks ahead with him and I am hoping that he will be able to go up to Phoenix during the event and cheer me on!
