Bad Blogger, Bad Blogger......

I am such a bad blogger *said while hanging my head in shame* I'm sorry.

Well camping went well lol. My boys were both made for camping! Scout made me so proud, he was so well behaved. We didn't even have to tie him up when we were just hanging around camp. He just found a shady spot under the tree and hung out and watched everything going on around him. His favorite part was the hiking on the trails. We did a LOT of hiking, because let's face it, camping is boring! We hiked on trails & we hiked off trails. We went fishing. It was just an all around good time. I can't wait to go again.

I recently changed the "scent list" on the site. Now it includes pictures :) But if the pictures aren't your thing, you can still find an alphabetized list.

I just ordered some fall and x-mas scents. Here is the line up so far (I'm sure I'll add more, I'm a fragrance oil addict).

Almond rum cake: A scrumptious bakery arrangement beginning with top notes of almond extract, chopped almonds, and dark rum; followed by middle notes of sugar cane, coconut milk, vanilla extract, and heavy cream; well-rounded with base notes of butter and cake batter.

Apple butter caramel: machintosh apple, steamed milk, pure sugar, caramel candy, toffee pudding, apple butter, fresh nutmeg, vanilla bean, and soft musk.

Candy kitchen :holiday apple & spices with a splash of mint

Kicked up cocoa : Cool cocoa fragrance begins with top notes of cocoa and peppermint; followed by middle notes of vanilla and spearmint; with base notes of gourmet dark chocolate and vanilla beans.

Egg nog: French vanilla egg nog with hints of nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon

Elf sweat: Elf sweat fragrance is a bubbly, magical blend of candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup, with effervescent spicy soda pop bubbles to provide a unique, magical top note.

Holiday pomegranate: pomegranate, sparkling citrus, dewberry, blackberry, iris, jasmine, sheer musk, sandalwood, and red cassis.

Hot cocoa: warm hot chocolate with melted mashmallow topping.

Hot toddy: well-balanced blend of Fuji apple, bergamot, lemon wedge, cinnamon stick, granulated sugar, zesty clove, hot apple cider, nutmeg, and vanilla bean.

Joy Noel: vanilla beans, cinnamon, coconut and cassiaa
Pumpkin & Vanilla: rich pumpkin pie with whipped vanilla topping

Pumpkin apple butter: top notes of orange, apple, pear, pineapple, and cherries; middle notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove; with base notes of warm vanilla.

Snow angels: Duplication of Yankee's Snow Angels Type. Minty aroma with a buttercream top note.

Spiced pear: sweet juicy pear blended with spices

Sweet pumpkin: pumpkin blended with sweet cream, molasses, and a hint of spice

Sweet pumpkin noel: Last years best seller of sweet pumpkin blended with vanilla bean noel

Trick or treat: top notes of pumpkin, persimmon, and apple; followed by middle notes of blueberries, elderberries, currants, orange and cinnamon; and well rounded with base notes of sugar cane and vanilla.

Reindeer poo: top notes of apples and pears; followed by middle notes of eucalyptus, pine, and geranium; and well-balanced with base notes of vanilla, cedarwood, and patchouli. Comes with the following poem:

Santa saved a precious gift
And it's especially for you.
Just a little something extra
And it comes from Rudolph, too!

He knows that you've been naughty
Instead of being nice.
Once again you're on the bad list
And he's checked it over twice.

Santa hopes this little poem
Doesn't throw you for a loop.
All your getting this year
Is a bunch of reindeer poop!

Going Camping

I'm headed to take my husband and my dog camping :) I haven't been camping for over fifteen years and it's been WAY longer than that for my hubs. This will also be Scouts first time.

So I have a planner for a husband. He's lightened up over the years but the "planner" still surfaces occasionally. It surfaced with the camping expedition.

He put the tent up in our back yard yesterday. His words were; "I want to know how to put up the tent BEFORE I get up there so I don't look like a complete fool". I can see the wisdom in that I guess. It's a nice big tent and it will fit the two aero beds we already own with enough room for Scout to have his bed in there too. Yep two beds. We are way past the age where two grown adults will try and fit on one full sized blow up bed lol.

He rode his motorcycle up to check out the camp that we booked online, site unseen because it was the only state park in Pennsylvania that had an opening for tonight. Apparently upon entering the park he had to slow down because a BEAR was crossing the road. A BEAR??!!!?? The meanest thing I wanted to encounter while camping was a mosquito or a really big mean fighting sunfish ugh. I've been telling myself that the campgrounds wouldn't let people camp if bears were busy tearing people apart........right?

I'm hoping that there will be nobody there with fireworks. As Scout gets older, he gets more and more afraid of EVERYTHING (thunder, wind blowing through the trees, rain....yes rain, fireworks-because they sound like thunder ya know)!! Fireworks were going off last night and he just sat at my feet shaking like a leaf. I so need Ceasar.

I'm off to start packing the car. Temps are expected to get down to 50 tonight so I'm bringing my electric blanket. Yes, we are camping in a tent but I did get a site with electricity so I'm willing to rough it but not freeze lol.
