Wordless Wednesday.

My cutie pies Valentines day morning. They loved their love bugs and treats!


 What a mess! Eating his Vegan chocolate covered Oreos. 
 One of my best friends, Bekkah and I at Gardner Villages Queen of Hearts event! It. Was. Amazing. It was a chocolate Dinner... There was chocolate fondue fountains and tables filled with strawberries, banannas, pineapple, pretzels, cinnamon bears, anything and everything you could want to have covered in chocolate! Along with a hot chocolate bar with a ton of toppings for your hot chocolate and a wine and champagne bar. We had the best time ever! After our chocolate filled dinner, we did some fun shopping since they were offering a ton of great deals. I got the cutest shirt for only $5.00 and a Halloween jack-O-lantern to put up year round.

And finally, my Valentines day present from M. 2 dozen Roses, chocolates and a card. Loved it!

Happy "Wordless" Wednesday!

It just makes Scents!

I know Scentsy has been around for quite some time now, but... I just joined the bandwagon and am excited to share a giveaway with you! I recently came in contact with Gwenn, a lovely Scentsy consultant. She had asked on Facebook if anyone was interested in hosting a Scentsy basket party. I thought it sounded fun, so I offered to do one. We chit chatted a little more and she had offered to sponsor a giveaway on my blog worth $25.00 to my readers! I had the opportunity to review my first Scentsy warmer and scent bars. Love em! 
The warmer is seriously too cute:
"Margot"

 Isn't it glam? The Pearls are so gorgeous when it's all lit up. I usually use 1-2 blocks of the scent and that seems to be just enough!

The two scents I got to try out were "Skinny Dippin" & "French Kiss" Oh my. I love them both! Skinny dippin' is getting me excited for Summer as it is a very Summer-Inspired scent. And French Kiss, in my opinion smell very similar to Bath & Body Works "Brown sugar and Fig" Which happens to be my favorite lotion! They're both great. I have heard so many great things about Scentsy and from my experience with it so far, it definitely lives up to all the hype and it's great reputation.

So now for the fun part: 
One of my readers is going to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Scentsy!

Buy it: 
  • Head over to Gwenn's website, right now everything for the month of February is 10% off! Be sure to click on "Marci's party" . If you would like to buy anything under my party, you will get 7 extra entries to win the $25.00 gift certificate! 
{Just be sure to leave 7 separate comments to get your extra entries.}

Win it:
  • Head over to Gwenn's website and take a look around. Come back here and let me know what you would love to buy if you won! What are your favorite scents? 
Optional for extra entries:
 There you have it! 
Have fun with this ladies, this giveaway will end:

An up-coming giveaway!

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. As for now, I am currently relaxing and doing some networking while the babies are asleep. Typical Friday night when I have a break from homework.. Har, har! So I recently came in contact with another Blogger who also is a Scentsy sales consultant. She had asked me if I was interested in hosting a Scentsy Basket party and I said.. Umm, of course! We did some more talking and she has kindly offered to sponsor a $25.00 gift certificate to Scentsy for my readers! Is everyone excited? I have never had a Scentsy warmer before, so I am looking forward to this. I am finally on the band wagon! (Bwahahaha) . My party is up and going on line, I am beat for now but plan on having the giveaway/review/party post up by tomorrow night. If you would like, give me a heads up if you are interested in anything. {It is all 10% off!} If not, that's just fine too. The giveaway will be fun! I hope you all have had a great Friday night!

Directions for wearing magnetic therapy bracelets:
• Wear your magnetic jewelry from 24 hours.

Weekend catch up!

This weekend has been filled with some good times! I had made plans with one of my best friends Megan to go do some shopping, have some lunch and coffee together, and today was finally the day! Lotsa girl talk and good times were to be had. We met up at noon and headed straight up to lunch to get our day started. We ate at one of my Families places to eat, Cafe Shambala. It's a local, amazing Tibetan restaurant here in Utah. Did I mention most of their items are Vegan? Woot! Megan had never been there before and thankfully, she loved it. After lunch, we headed next door to Hatch's Family chocolates, you may have heard of them on TV. Their chocolate and candy shop is also delish! We got our Valentines some treats, along with ourselves. I mean, how could we not right? So after being stuffed, we headed to go do some much needed shopping! It was so nice to just take our time and have fun and have some good chit chat. I Finally got some shoes I have been wanting at Express: 

They're so bright and sparkly! Love em. 

I also got my Valentine and my babies their Valentines presents and cards from Hallmark. After shopping we just headed back to my place and that was it for our fun filled day! May not sound all too exciting, but when you have little ones.. And don't get out much, it's very exciting! I had a blast, hoping to do it more often. For tomorrow, my Valentine is taking me out for an early Valentines day date! {I have class Monday night} So we are going out to lunch, still deciding on where though, then heading to go see Sanctum in iMax 3D. We got perfect seats, I am beyond excited! I have been wanting to see this movie since I saw the first previews for it. Afterward, I have to take my last midterm for my online class, then onto another week. This week is a little exciting though, we out an offer in on a house yesterday and will hopefully hear more about what's going on this week. Key word, hopefully. This is such a slow process! {Trying to be patient!} I had a job interview for the Hospital on Thursday for a CNA position and am hoping to hear back on that later this week, or early next week as well. Life has been exciting as of late! So much to look forward too. 

Want to hear some more good news? I was invited to be a co-host for Bee Friendly Friday with Family and Life in Las Vegas and Crazy about my Baybah! I haven't had the opportunity to co-host an event like this, so I am pretty excited. It is coming up this Friday.
And last but not least, I have three more giveaways lined up for you guys! Here are the lovely sponsors:


 I hope you have all had a great weekend so far!
Much love,
