A Boy and his Dog

Just a few cute pics I snapped tonight.

I love my Scentsy Warmer

I'm probably way behind the times on this one, but I got a Scentsy Warmer for Christmas from my mom and I LOVE it!! I had never heard of such a thing before I opened it up at Christmas time, but I'm now officially addicted. If you are like me and totally in the dark about what I'm talking about, keep reading.

The Scentsy Warmer is a warmer with a small light bulb in the bottom and a little dish on top. In the dish is where you put a block or two from the wickless Scentsy Bar, which is slowly melted by the bulb below. The bars have 6 blocks in them, and in my small house, I usually only need to use one at a time to fill the whole house with a wonderful fragrance. (Currently my house smells like grape bubble gum). Each bar has as much fragrance at as 12 oz candle, and it they are only $5 each!! What a deal!!

When you want to change to a different scent, simply pour the melted wax back into the Scentsy Bar container, wipe out the dish with a paper towel and put the new scent in.

In addition to the beautiful pot, the reason I like it so much, is because it is so much safer than burning a candle. And when you have a 4 year old child and a 6 year old beagle running around a very small house, candles are just not an option around here.

So, be sure to go to the Scentsy website and find a consultant in your area.

I was not paid or compensated in any way for this blog post...I just wanted to share my new obsession.

Giveaways Around Bloggy Land

I'm on a mission to find the latest and greatest baby stuff, since there are only 9 days (YES NINE DAYS) until baby arrives. Since it has been 4.5 years since I've had a baby in the house, I feel like I'm out of touch; like it's the first baby all over again. So where do I go, to the blog world of course, to try to win it for free. So, with that, here is what I have found today...

Over at A Mom's Balancing Act, there is a giveaway for a CozyWedge. What is that you ask? It is a much safer alternative to bumper pads in your baby's crib. You can check them out by clicking here, and then head over to A Mom's Balancing Act to win it for your baby!

So, I was standing in line at work waiting to use the restroom, because I am way too lazy to walk to the other side of the building to the other restroom. As I was standing there, I notice the person in the stall, lift one of their feet and next thing I hear is FLUSH. Now, this isn't the first time I have seen this, but every time I do, it makes me wonder....why do people feel it necessary to flush with their foot? Are they not going to just walk to the sink and wash their hands as soon as they walk out of the stall? And if they are worried about picking up germs from the flusher, why do they feel save unlocking and opening the stall door with their hands? The hands they fear so much that just flushed the toilet immediately go on to open the stall door.

I just don't get it, and the thought of using my foot to flush had never crossed my mind until I saw a co-worker's foot disappear to flush years ago. My next thought was that would explain the black scuff marks on the side of the toilet...I was never able to figure that one out either.

Are you a foot flusher? Please take a minute to answer my poll and feel free to leave a comment on why you do or don't flush with your foot.

Yes, I'm still alive!!

In case any of you were wondering, I am still alive, and I am still pregnant!! I really got out of blogging mode for quite a while. Sorry about that. I don't know how often I will update in the near future, but hopefully more than once every 2 or 3 months!

So...update on me. I am currently 37 weeks pregnant, and ready to be done! I have been much more comfortable this time than I was when I was pregnant with Caiden, but I'm starting to get sore, and I'm always tired. But, there is an end in sight. I have a C-Section scheduled for March 2nd...2 weeks from tomorrow!! The pic on the right is from a week ago, so I was 36 weeks pregnant. Caiden is super excited for the baby to come. Every time I tell him how many days are left until the baby comes, he tells me he hates that number because it is too big LOL.

Caiden is doing well in school...usually. I have started getting letters about him starting Kindergarten in the fall...I just can't decide what to do. I need to talk to his teacher and see if she thinks he is ready. They offer something called AK here, which is basically Kindergarten, but it is only for 1/2 a day. Since he has only been in a structured setting for a year and he is a July baby, I'm thinking that this might be the option for him. I need to find out if his daycare is able to pick him up mid-day though. I don't know if they have any other AK students there.

What else is new? Not much, just trying to get through these last two weeks of work. Then it is 8 weeks off of working outside the home, and the beginning of sleepless nights, diapers, bottles and all of the snuggly fun that comes with a new baby!
