I love food scented candles. Ok, usually the sweets, like vanilla or apples and spice or pumpkin spice those kinds of candles.
Never a big fan of the floral ones. Guess I just like to have the smell of good food in my house ( because a candle is the only way thats going to happen!!!)
But this one takes it! Nope, not bacon. Its Fried Chicken!!
Seriously, someone made a candle that smells like Fried Chicken. The lady who makes them actually cooks the chicken in the wax...so its legit.
THe Chicken Fried Candle is from Kentucky!!
You gotta meet George!! He is part of Celtic Thunder coming to Northern Quest the 29 and 30 and is amazing and fun!
If you aren't familiar with Celtic Thunder....check them out on YouTube and you will be as excited as I was!
I had the chance to talk to George himself and as you will hear, he is truly Scottish and sometimes hard to understand but still worth a listen!
Thanks to Tommy Two Tone, its probably the first phone number you ever were able to remember.... 867-5309!! The song was really popular years ago and at that time if you called it you would hear a recording of "jenny" answering the phone.
But what about now??
Well, now you will hear Carrie ( who lives in Florida) answering HER phone. Carrie was one of those people who called the number years ago when the song was hot...and recently she wondered what would happen if she called it again.
So she did.
Only to find out that Jenny no longer answered....no one did. It was available.
So she called the phone company and convinced them to switch her current phone to THOSE digits.
Do people still call that number wondering if Jenny will answer? Yes! She says she can get up to 50 calls a day...and she LOVES it!
She said that she loves her phone number and won't give it up for anything....altho...she does note that the number had been sold on ebay about 7 years ago for $5 thousand dollars. She said that maybe that much money could make her give it up....maybe!!!
So do you do it? Them?? Do you take selfies?
I am asking because its now been recognized by the official dictionary as a real word, a real thing. And its defined as taking your own picture and uploading it to social media.
Funny tho, I have friends that do take a ton of selfies and put them on Facebook. Its nice to be able to see them as our daily lives don't afford me that chance.
But....I still haven't done it! Nope. Not a huge fan of getting the old pict taken right now....so...not something I think of, taking one of myself.
Now my girls picts? Oh yeah! Things we see and do? Definately. ME....not yet!!! :)
But I would guess that in the next year....I will join the Selfie group. Maybe!!!
It was Saturday, not sure the station, but I saw it!! The commercial that runs every year to let me know the holidays have begun!
The Hershey "bells" commercial!
You know the one, where they have Hershey Kisses ringing we wish you a merry christmas for 30seconds.
I love it.
No, I don't know why, but I do and when I see it, THATS when I know the holidays have begun!
I am ready! Ok, I am starting to get ready! I even started in on the Christmas list of gifts and ideas this year.
But ONLY after I saw that commercial!!
At my house, when I can see the back of the fridge, it means its time to go shopping for more food!! But its also useful, as in I can find those items at the back and check them for expiration dates. Sounds disgusting I know, but really...we all do it.
Stuff just gets lost back there. Especially if you have a hubby and kids! Instead of putting items back where they go...they get shoved to the back, covered up by other things not to be seen again until its too late.
I would guess! So then today is that day. Check those bottles, cartons and plastic containers. And get ready to toss, toss, toss. This is perfect for me, as tomorrow is shopping day anyways. And i can buy more plastic containers to replace the ones I am tossing today! Trust me....there will be tossing. And probably shaking my head and uttering not the nicest of words. All in the name of the clean fridge...and not rotten food!
Jensen is a 16 year old singer / songwriter who has written a song for Big Brothers Big Sisters and will performing it tomorrow for their Fundraising Breakfast!
Kids are neat. Most of the time! :)
Today is my birthday and both of my girls made me cards. I love that. Ones they make themselves and draw on mean a lot to me.
The one from Ella is sweet. Full of hearts and 2 princesses that she says are her and me. The message she wrote says Happy Birthday, I love you.
Rissa drew a card for me too. Hers has a big heart on the front that says Mommy in it...stars and peace signs on the edges of it. On the inside it says Happy Birthday Mom. Have a nice life. LOL.
She actually wrote in the LOL herself too.
And then here at work she took it upon herself to tell my co-workers just how old I am today too!
I am sure this is all done with love from her tho, don't get me wrong, in fact she made sure to give me my card first thing this morning. She loves me.
Just in her own way.
I saw the story on the Today.com site this morning and I loved it! I was going to post today about my ride in the Weenie Mobile yesterday ( fun!) but this just hit me harder.
A special needs man works in a store in new york. He usually does maintence, but when its busy, he also helps out checking. Thats what he was doing the other day when the lady who he was checking out her groceries yelled at him that he was going to slow and then complained loudly to the manager too. HE went home that night and told his family over dinner that he had had the worse day ever. He didn't understand how someone could yell at him like that. He hadn't done anything wrong.
His sister, like any good sister, got mad! And she also wanted to build her brother up...with good comments and support. So she posted on FB ( knowing that he was always on FB!) about the incident and just asking if people could leave a few good, supportive and uplifting comments that her brother could see and feel good again.
She only expected a few people to respond. Instead, over 100 thousand people liked it and over 15 thousand left comments. People at the store were going up to him and shaking his hand or giving him hugs!
One lady even commented that she herself had pointed her anger at others before and after this, she will think twice before doing that again.
How cool is that? Thats what FB should be for. Reaching out and supporting people. Hope this story makes you day like it did mine!
