Lynn--what wonderful news for your daughter. Now to get your DIL through her transplant and maybe your family can start to relax and enjoy the summer. Prayers will stay with you all.

I'm starting the day with a re-melt of BRH 'Pomegranate Citrus.' I love it - I melted it for about four hours last night, and it is still fairly strong. This is from ONE small heart melt! I also just love the scent. It isn't specifically one fruit or the other, instead to my nose it is just a lovely strong tart/sweet fruity scent. You know the smell that fills your nose when you dump a packet of powdered red jello into a bowl? That is what BRH's 'pomegranate citrus' smells like to me.

Laurie, you're hysterical!
I'm melting CCCC Hello Sugar. Not fond of this one but it's my own fault, certainly not Deana's. I ordered it myself but apparently didn't read the scent description carefully enough. It's got a bakery element.
Gail, so forlorn, so overly dramatic

Mimi: great news and prayer is powerful...
Today is my Tipper's 20th birthday..I think he needs an extra special treat!!
DH will be home after lunch to commence laying the tile in the kitchen area..My fridge will be in my LR until the new one comes in next week...Also a trip to Kohl's today to use my 30% coupon before it expires.
This morning I am melting LSC-White Witch-it's just my kind of scent...
Have a great weekend y'all...

Melting a mixture of Strawberry Cookies and Vanilla Bean Noel from FP...it's really heaven FP Vanilla Bean Noel, to my nose, is not the typical VBN, I can't put my finger on it. I LOVE VBN and this one is just a bit weak, so since i have a four-pack, i'm mixing with my other scents, and it adds a nice kick
Puppylove, i adore Hello Sugar from Deana...are you looking for a straight-up lemon? I'm such a sucker for bakery lemon scents. Straight up lemon is a bit too strong/citrusy for me. Sorry you ordered the wrong one, that happens to me too many times!

DH already got me on an April Fool's joke. He has to send someone from his team to the Qatar. I told him that by no means is he to go with all of the instability in the middle east. Yesterday he was told that he is going to the UK instead. This morning he comes in a tells me that he has to go to Saudi Arabia for 2 weeks. I nearly flipped my lid. I was going on and on about how he could be so irresponsible and do this. What if something happens...blah blah blah for like 5 minutes. Then he started laughing and said, "April Fools! I just bought my ticket to go to the UK." He really got me good.
Tarts from Carol:
Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti
Spring Days votive - YC (not my kind of scent for for $1 worth a try)
Key Lime Pie tealight - YC
Blueberry jar - YC
Easter Egg Hunt jar - YC

Nygal, I wish I did, but I so do not like bakery. Thanks for your sweet reply. I wasn't particularly looking for lemon, just a sweet sugary scent. DH came in and said, "Are you cooking fish for the dog?" Welllll, that did it!
LLVV, that's such a cute April Fools joke your DH did. Shame on him for scarin' ya though. I'm glad he's going to the UK. You must be really relieved!
I had to run out for groceries. When I came back, dragging in multiple bags, I said to DH (who's as much of a tightwad as I am), "They had such a deal on popcorn I bought 50 bucks worth." His reply was something like, " ." Got the picture?? I let him carry on for awhile, stew for a few minutes, question my sanity a bit. Then I pulled out the April Fools surprise and man, did we laugh!
I'm melting FM Caribbean Queen and I must say, it deserves a big ol' solid gold crown!

I can't believe its April already. Five more weeks and my DD will be home from college. Its so hard to believe that school will be almost over. It still feels like winter here.
Melting AMS Sea Salt Caramels. I have to pick my mom up from dialysis in a bit and then I will burn my Slatkin Salty Caramel candle when I get back.

I'm home from BBB. I wanted to try out their tealights. They look different than the other cheap ones that I'm used to. I have one of them burning right now so I can test out the quality. It's nice that they are made in the USA. Most are imported.
Katz - Happy 20th to your kitty!
DH and I are planning on Pay Per Viewing Black Swan after DD goes to bed.

At first I had LS Gyngerbrede Supreme on the melter. Luv their tarts, but that scent wasn't for me, didn't smell like GB to me, so out it went. Changed to CFTKR's Holiday Hugs. Yesssss....perfect!
