~A Peek Into Our Week~

This is the candle that I choose to burn for Valentines Day.  It made our little home smell like Chocolate.  This is a very yummy and strong scented candle.
I thought Sugar Berry would go nicely with the Chocolate Scented candle, so this was the wax than I melted on Valentines day in our little home.
Here is the children's Vaentine treats.  There of course was one for each of the children and for our grown children, Tristyn and Kaylee.  (I give them stocking also at Christmas time.)

Here the the photo my daughter Megan made me have taken.  I like it because it is me in my night gown that my sweet sister Lori gave to me.
I added twinkle lights to both of my shelves in our little kitchen.  I really like the look of the little twinkle lights.  In case anyone wonders,  I found them at Walmart by the candle and flower section of our store.  I believe they were only around $5.00 each.
We purchased some Girl Scout cookies.  The little girl that we got them for did not have the peanut butter patties.  However, Kaylee worked with a gal whose daughter was selling them and we were able to get some of those as well!

Here is Megan's little room.  I just love the cozy feel of it.  I even like her bed spread now that it has the little throw at the bottom and the teal pillow cases.  
Steven and I went out for lunch in Yoder at the Carriage Crossing.  It is a good restaurant,  with home made style food.  I always get the fried chicken, mashed potato's and gravy and baked beans.  So yummy!

 I love  to look at the little gift shop after we eat our meal.  I found a few wax melts that I had to bring home with me!
This last week I burned my Honey Dew candle as well.  I consider burning my candles and melting wax a hobby of mine.  My daughter Lauren says it's an addiction.  LOL  Today I have to work on laundry and just do my normal tidying up in our little house.  We are heading to Lawrence this weekend.  I am so excited to see my family and friends.  Today I need to wrap my parent's Christmas gifts, because we are just now giving them to them.  It should be a fun filled weekend.  It will be nice for Steven to get away also.  He has just been so busy working and will really enjoy a break.  It is nice, he loves going to visit my family.  I am blessed that they have always gotten along quite well.  Well, I better get going on my laundry.   I hope you all had a nice Valentines Day and have a great rest of your week.  Hugs.  Juli
