Pioneer Woman on the Food Network, I’ve watched every episode…

Well, since I love the woman, there is no way I would give her a bad review, but I must say, I’m on the third episode now, and she’s definitely improving.

I had an ah-ha moment this morning when she kissed her Bassett Hound, Charlie, and told him she loved him.  And her “baby” is the sweetest little 7 year old boy ever, with his endearing lisp.

Since this show is about family, she quickly goes through her recipes, but that’s okay, I would rather see the ranch, the horses and the kids.  She’s refreshing, she’s real, she even had bad makeup in the first episodes, but they’re correcting it.

She’s just a busy mom of four, living on a ranch with her hunky hubby, who found her niche and is making major money for her family. REE DRUMMOND YOU ARE A ROCK STAR IN MY BOOK!!!!!

You can find her show schedule and recipes here…

Scentsy, I’m such a fan.


Scentsy Ocean Scent is the most amazing thing I’ve ever smelled, I just had to share this with you.  My Buddy, Ang, sold Scentsy for awhile last year and she set me up with warmers and blocks of different flavored wax and the smells are wonderful.

The quality is so good, they’re comparable to Yankee Candles, but there is no wick, no flame, you just plug in the burners and the cubes of wax melt in the pots.  They’re made from essential oils, no chemicals, so they don’t smell artificial, they are just fantastic. 

Some scents seem to last longer than others, you just have to try different ones to seama;te what you like.  The picture above shows some of their warmers and a 9 pack of wax cubes.  They cost $5.00 for a pack of these and you put one cube in either a burner that sits on table or they have plug-ins that plug into a wall socket. Prices for the burners are from $20 for a plug-in to $35 for a full size warmer, this Malta mid-size warmer on the right is $30, it’s one of my favorites. I think you can also buy a bundle of burner and wax, and it’s cheaper.  Once you get the burners, the wax is inexpensive.  The burners are really nice, too, they’re made of pottery, and there are a lot to choose from.

Ang isn’t selling Scentsy any longer, but we have a monthly flea market in Heavensville, and a Scentsy dealer is always there.  So I went last week to replenish my supply and tried one that I had never had before, Ocean.

1scntOcean is clean and fresh, not overpowering at all, it’s hands down the best fragrance ever, my house smells great.  I have one warmer in the living room and one plug-in in my bedroom, and they’ve been turned on 24/7 since last weekend and they still smell good.  The flavor is dissipating and I need to put in new cubes now, but I think this scent has lasted longer than any of the others I’ve had.  I also bought a pack of Oats ‘n Honey, a brown sugar smell that I haven’t had before, but I’m so hung up on Ocean that I haven’t even tried them. ;o)

Here is a link to one person’s reviews of some of the scents.  You can go to Scentsy’s website to find a dealer near you, or order online.

And, my son John, who, by the way is having a birthday today, Happy Birthday, Sweetie, is researching a unit that attaches to your HVAC system.  He says that the luxury hotels now all smell amazing, and that they are blowing scent thru their heating/air conditioning system.  So far all he’s finding are really expensive, like $500 for the unit, plus the bottles of fragrance that dispenses the scent.  But he’s working on finding a cheaper alternative, and if anybody can figure this out, John can.  This is ongoing, when he comes up with something I’ll let you know, and in the meantime you might want to give Scentsy a try.

You know I always share the good stuff, ladies, and this one is a winner!

Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

My sassy little daughter-in-law sent me the link to this video. You think maybe she’s trying to tell me something? ;o)
