Bath & Body Works Shopping

 Fall is in the air and I'm ready to start wearing boots, scarfs, jeans and comfy sweaters!  Another thing I love about the Fall is all the scents of the season.  So when I saw that Bath & Body was having another sale on their candles and bath products, I had to go shopping!

First I selected 4 3-wick candles in Salty Caramel, Cinnamon & Clove Buds, Leaves and Autumn.

I also stocked up on new shower gels and a new fragrance mist, and they smell so nice!!

I also picked up wallflower wall plug and 2 sets of refills....Finally decided to give these a try.
So far, I'm happy with the way my kitchen is smelling

Since it is Fall, I decided to get some Fall themed Candle sleeves and here they are.
Love them, especially the pumpkin sleeve.

This year my decorating will be very minimal, so these candles will have to do for now.

I think I've stocked up well for the Fall, but now I'm really looking forward to the next sale to stock up on the new Winter/Christmas Scents.  

How do you guys prep your home for the Fall?

Fun Crazy Busy Weekends~It's Over!

Well, our busy baseball weekends are over but we still have a few weekends left in August to enjoy!  We spent the rest of the weekends with friends and just us 4 doing what we love - hanging out and going down the shore!

One weekend we had a girls sleep over~Fun!!

With some pool time the next day :)

We still made time to work out~I am training for a half marathon (what was I thinking!)

Squeezed in some back to school shopping.....

Shore moments.....these are the best times!!

Making our workouts fun by bike riding, love riding here at Libert State Park!

Had to stop here at the 9/11 Memorial for all the New Jersey residents who lost their lives that day

Another day at the shore - first time I rode the swings, EVER!! 

It wasn't bad, LOL

Feeding geese while big brother works on his pitching

Another day at the shore with friends!

and they managed to get me on this thing....OMG

I was freaking out but trying to be brave for baby girl!

I was sick the rest of the day, ugh, this ride turned my stomach.

Now it was hubby's turn....but he likes this stuff!

Well.....this pretty much wraps up our summer.  No week long vacation, only weekend getaways for baseball.  I'm not complaining, we really enjoyed all weekends and finally got to visit Gatlinburg, TN even though it was only for a few days!

Hope you all had a summer to remember......these memories will last a lifetime!

Fun Crazy Busy Weekends ~ Last Baseball Weekend of the Summer!

Well, this is it - our last weekend of baseball travel for the summer.  This trip was to Maryland, so it wasn't too bad since it was closer than the last two trips.  We left Friday afternoon and got to our hotel, The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Washington DC-Silver Spring, around 6.  We went up to our room and it was a king bed - that was a problem!  So I called the front desk and had to go back downstairs to be assigned to a new room. When we were finally settled in our room, baby girl changed to her bathing suit and we went to the pool for a bit.  We headed out for dinner at a Hibachi place with friends.  The area was great - so many people were out and there were so many places to eat!  So we ate, celebrated the birthday of one of the player's little sister, who also happens to be my baby girl's friend!  We went back to the hotel to have some birthday cake and then bed!

The next morning we checked out, yes we only stayed 1 night.  The chance of the boys advancing was very slim so we checked out and went to the first game of the day.

Game was a loss, and now we had several hours to kill.  We looked up the closest places to visit and Inner Harbor seemed like the best place to go.  Another 2 baseball families came along and it was so much fun.  This place was so nice and there were so many stores and places to eat!

We had a great time walking around, but the day was coming to an end and it was time to head out.  We stopped to play mini golf and then off to Harford Community College for the final game of the weekend.  My son pitched this game and he was so off this night.  Not sure what happened but he just couldn't focus so he didn't last long on the mound.

Well, the weekend didn't end with the Win we would've preferred but it was a nice weekend.  We packed it up and headed home.  I think it was about 1 am when we got home and we were all happy to be back home to sleep in our own beds!!

This is probably our last getaway for the summer and we did enjoy it.  I definitely would've liked to have done some sight seeing in DC but it didn't quite work out.  I would love to go back some other time to stop and check out the sights, but I knew going in that this was strictly baseball and that's what it was!

How have your summer weekends been?
