#AtoZChallenge - "D" - A "Divine" New Product

Image
I hope this post will count toward the A to Z April Challenge.

Like many people, I like pretty things. When I saw this product for April, I thought "This is Divine!"

Divine is Mother's Day - Scentsy's new warmer for April. And, add a new scent to your collection! This month's scent is "Cerise."


The warmer is a soft purple hue.

Pale and shimmery, the warmer is a fine backdrop for the jeweled center.

Just enough bling for the Mom, Sister, Aunt, Grandmother or any lady who likes very feminine things.



I love the smell of cherry blossom and Cerise has that gentle scent, paired with plums and white flowers. Check out this cute video promo Scentsy crafted for this month's scent.

#AtoZChallenge "B" - Birthday Cake

Image
Yesterday was my birthday so a few days before, my co-workers gave me a cake... It was so sweet of them to do that. I hadn't expected it, but really appreciated it. They bought the cake from Publix and it was Publix "Buttercream" icing.

If you are familiar with Publix stores, and have had their buttercream, it's really a more whipped icing than what I feel is a true buttercream. If I did a taste test with my eyes closed, I wouldn't describe Publix icing as anything close to buttercream.

I've had cakes from bakeries, made them from scratch and everyone else's buttercream icing is thicker and richer. However, I LOVE sweets and can eat just about any kind of icing.

If someone was going to make you a birthday cake, what kind would it be?

#AtoZChallenge "A" ~ Airports

Image
First day of the A - Z Blogging Challenge!!! WOOP, WOOP!!!

Right now I'm sitting at the computer with one of my 2 children waiting for the time to leave for the airport. I'll be gone on a business trip for 2 weeks, ugh!  I will miss, miss my children so much!

This blog is about going to the airport. I'll be flying out of Atlanta which is a huge airport. Very busy and can be quite complicated. I've been there enough to get around okay. The airport in the destination city is not so bad. It has like 8 gates. There's not much confusion there. You get off the plane, go through the gate and around the corner, you can rent a car. Easy. A girl I'll be flying with said flying makes her nervous. I kind of get excited about going into the air. I look at it as an adventure. How about you? Do you love or hate airports and flying????
