put the lime in the coconut

Friday, May 28, 2010

Yesterday Hubby asked if I wanted to get out of the house for awhile. He's sweet like that. My meds are starting to work so I took him up on it!! We went to one of my favorite stores in the world - Yankee Candles. They are having a big sale right now and I loved every moment of my small shopping spree. Business has been good so I didn't even feel guilty, yippee!



I got 2 large candles, 2 medium candles and Hubby grabbed 2 of those plug-in things. I had a $10 off coupon that they took on top of the sale so it was a great deal. SCORE!! I LOVE candles. Here is the printable coupon I used if you are interested. Lime in the coconut is my fav. although Tulips smells great too and Berry Tangerine is a nice change of pace from my usual scents. I think I'm obsessed... and now I have that coconut song in my head.

ps: What made you feel good this week? Share at Feel Good Friday. While you are there check out the design, it's a yours truly.

Congratulations on the sale success! I'm never able to bring myself to buy a Yankee Candle unless I find them cheap ($30 for a candle, really?!), but they do smell so good! ;-)

That candle sounds amazing. I need to check out the sale.
This did remind me though of a little talk between my mom and I the other day:
Mom: "Where did you put the lime?"
Me: "In the coconut."
haha.. it cracked me up! :D

Hope you have a wonderful weekend full of amazing smells! :D

I had a candle party over the holidays and that's when I found that scent combo as well. It's so great! I went fabric shopping this week, that was a fun treat :) Glad you had the chance to step out and breath in something fresh!

I adore stocking up on candles. My favorite thing this week is a tie between taking my kids down to Seattle and spending the night at a hotel and going out to dinner with some girlfriends. So I guess you can say I had a good week.

YAY for business being good!

Glad you are starting to feel better.
