Now that it's Almost Fall (seriously, that should be a new season. Almost Fall is when you need a hoodie at night but still wear a tank top during the day without being cold. Almost Fall could also be known as The Weather in Southern California All The Time) it's time to break out my Fall (or Almost Fall) candles. Nothing in the world makes me happier than the smell of this:
I just lost like, a dozen readers by saying that, I totally know it.
Anyway, I'm a little OCD about my Fall candles. I have to start with Leaves in September through part of October. Then I transition to Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin through the remainder of October up until Thanksgiving. That's when I switch over to our Christmas fragrances like Fresh Balsam and Frosted Cranberry. They burn until Christmas and then lastly we wrap up December and into January with Fireside Marshmallow. Fireside Marshmallow segues into Lavender Vanilla and by then it's early Spring and I can start with my floral fragrances.
I know, I have a problem. But what's worse - there's a NEW candle I like called Autumn. How am I going to fit Autumn into my candle schedule?! This might be keeping me up at night and I might be embarrassed to admit that.
Candles aside, we picked up some new lamps this weekend. I'd been in the market for some new lamps for our nightstands but hadn't found any that I loved. Then I found these guys, and they were the right price (free!) so I figured I'd see how they look.
He just couldn't stand it and decided he needed to help demonstrate how the bed works.
Well of course, we can't have one dog on the bed and not the other so Frito needed to get in on the action.
And this is what our bed looks like almost all of the time.
Speaking of Kenny someone had a run-in with the paint I've been using on a coffee table I worked on tonight.
Don't tell him we're Irish.
