My Tarts are Better and Stronger For Longer!

Tart Bars

I got so much done today! I am so excited about the sale on Saturday. I was working with one of my helpers today and she had never melted my tart bars before. She is a fan of those fragrancy tart bars that “other” popular company makes and asked me if mine were the same or different. I said, “They are better and stronger, for longer”. I then laughed because I thought that sounded funny. … [Read more…]

Just A Little Stressed Out

I can’t believe I am even showing you what I look like right now! OK, so I teased my hair out a bit, but I look like I feel! Stressed. I just got a call from my wax salesman and what do you know, they shipping company never picked up my order. It is still in LA. I have enough inventory (tons of tart bars, travel tins and container candles), I just want to make … [Read more…]

Brad’s Car Got Bird Bombed!

I just had to show you this. Brad parked in the wrong spot at work and the car got bombed! He said he was only parked there maybe an hour when people started coming in and laughing, telling him to move his car. Aparently he did not move it fast enough. So gross!

Reflecting On A Great Thanksgiving!

And some not so great, and some funny and some… My mom and I made the turkey for Thanksgiving this year. We cooked it in a bag because it is so juicy and yummy this way (not to mention super easy). I just had to post this picture because it looked so perdy (that is fancy way of saying pretty)! Here is our spread in front of the trailer (maybe you need to refer back … [Read more…]

Who Would Have Thought That Just Dance 3 Would Be So Dramatic!

I bought Just Dance 3 for the kids and I. I thought it would be a fun game we could do together as a family and I could get a work out. Well, I was wrong. It turned out to be awful. It ended up with Teagan crying and yelling. Let me tell you what happened… They were all excited to pick out the song. Teagan picked Party Rock (he loves that song) and we … [Read more…]

Can I Just Go Back To Bed And Start Over?


I have been getting ready for my candle sale on December 1st. I thought I would try to be ahead of the game this year. I have been putting all the candles out so I can see what I have. I have a list of everything but I am a very visual person. As I was putting everything out, I didn’t feel like I had enough Creme Brule (I have a lot, don’t get me … [Read more…]

Check out the Calendar I Made


We really needed a family calendar. We just can’t keep up with all the homework, projects, sports and everything else. I have my appointment book where I write client appointments and all our life happenings but it is at a week glance and Brad never looks in it. So, I decided to make a calendar. There is a girl on Etsy that will sell you a white vinyl custom printed calendar to put in a … [Read more…]

I know it is not Thanksgiving yet.


I have never done this before. I am usually all stressed out around the holidays. For me it is my busiest time of the year. Not just because it is Christmas but because it is candle season. When you have a seasonal business you have to make hay when the sun shines. Well, I start selling candles when it is getting to be chilly outside (not many people want to burn candles in the summer … [Read more…]

Vinyl Table Cloth Seat Covers

I used to make fun of my mom because she always had a plastic or vinyl tablecloth on the table when we were growing up. Now I know she is the smartest woman alive. Sometimes it is not about being cool, but about being practical. I think I am turning into my mother. I like the distressed or rustic look and  I have a beautiful dining room table that is carved teak wood from India. Does … [Read more…]

1900 Injections and Still Counting!

I sometimes feel like I need to just spill whatever is on my mind. I am not sure you want to hear about it, but since my blog is titled “Another Day in My Life” I’m just going to put out there. I guess this is kind of like a dear diary (now don’t you feel privileged you get to read my diary or does it creep you out? heh heh). Maybe the only person … [Read more…]
