I was in Iowa last week for work, and since I have no pictures (worth anything) on my work laptop, I skipped my weekly "Thursday's Thru The Lense". And since I've not uploaded anything new in a while, I'm not going to catch you up like I usually would. You'll just have to wait a few days. :)
Iowa...it's not that I don't like you. You're very pretty (during the right time of year...aka, NOT snow-white winter). It's that you're so desolate! On the two hour drive between Des Moines and Iowa City, you really don't offer a whole lot. I'd love to say it's not you, it's me....but that just wouldn't be true. It's you. I do, however, appreciate that your cities/towns are receptive to what I offer through work (education) and I had a VERY productive week last week. But that's just not quite enough to redeem you. Sorry.
Scentsy...why must you smell so good and offer such great stuff!!! I went to my first Scentsy party on Saturday and spent...well, more than I should have. Thankfully one of my purchases was a burner (as this was my first time) so I shouldn't have need of one anytime soon. (HA! as there's another one I want before I even left with the first) But I must restrain myself for 4 more months. I'm trying to save for a wedding here, folks!! Luna, Black Raspberry Vanilla, and White Tea and Cactus are the scents that will be filling my apartment for the next 4 months (BRV now...oh so good!!!) After that, I have no idea...they all, mostly, smell so good!! And now I know what to do for Christmas presents for those that already have burners (and those that don't...it's only fair I share my new addiction). HOORAY!!
Speaking of weddings...we paid our first half on Friday for the venue!! WOOHOO!! Now I have to call them and see if they'll send me the contact information for the florist, dj, bakery, and chef so I can contact and start making tasting appointments and such. The place we got is all-inclusive, but if you go beyond what is covered by the contact there will be extra fees. I'm thinking the only place that will be an issue is with the florist since the contract only covers certain pieces and I need more and different designs. I'm not sure if I'll encounter extra fees with the bakery...I guess it just depends on what I'm looking at doing: cupcakes!!! (Love this idea!)
Well...that's about all I've got for the weekend happenings. Hoping to get back in the swing of regularity this week. HA!! :)
