***1000th Post*** & Giveaway!

That is a heck of a lot of writing. Had I not been such a slacker this past year, I would be well past that number. Oh well, I am there now and I am so happy to have this online little journal to share and look back on. There has been a lot that has changed in my life since I started this blog.

I have grown as a person, I have changed for the better, I fell in love with the greatest man ever, and have a wonderful little family. And soon, we will be welcoming the newest addition. I have made some remarkable friends. It is crazy to think that you can feel close to someone who you haven't even met, but I do. I can only hope that I am lucky enough to get the chance to meet these wonderful ladies in person some day.

I truly enjoy reading other people's stories, experiences, sharing their journeys. It is so nice to know that there are other people out there that have been through it, that can relate to all that you may be feeling or experiencing. There is always someone who can give you advice, shed some light, give you reassurance, and just be there.

I want to do a little GIVEAWAY.. but would need help on how to do the random drawing thing to make it fair. Just about a month ago, I became a Scentsy consultant. I have learned that most people have never heard of Scentsy. Heck, I only learned of it about a year ago. Now, I am hooked and addicted. I love everything about this product. Scentsy is a wickless candle. You buy a warmer and wax, plug the warmer into the wall and walla, you have a house that smells amazing...better than any candle can make your house smell! The best thing about Scentsy??!! There is no fire hazard since there is no flame. You don't stress about leaving your bathroom light on all day...well, I don't hesitate to leave my warmer on all day and sometimes all night. The warmers are adorable as well. Look at the warmer of the month!
I swear that you can smell my house from outside my front door. Even my husband is happy with how it smells. And the kids? They are obsessed!! Skylar L-O-V-E-S to "smell" her warmer every time we walk in her room. Swae and Seth both specifically asked for warmers for Christmas. Of course I ordered them right away and can't wait for them to open them!! Now I just need them to narrow down what scents they want. If they had it their way, they would have one of everything!

So for the GIVEAWAY, I would like to send a lucky someone a scent circle. All you have to do is browse the online catalog and tell me what warmer is your favorite and what scent you think that you would like. Mostly, I just want to share with everyone what an incredible product Scentsy is. Feel free to ask me any questions. This is one thing that I don't ever get tired of talking about. And definitely check out my site: http://stephwalker.scentsy.us. I will be picking a winner on Friday Nov 12.

Fun! I browsed the catalog I like the French Lavender Spa Collection scent circle, and if I had to choose a warmer the Milano Full-Size Renaissance Collection one is pretty. :)

For giveaways I use random.org. You just put 1 to however many valid entries (comments) you received for the giveaway & hit 'generate' it will draw a random number for the winner.

I also want to say it's been fun following your story, from before you were married, to getting married, having a baby, a family and now another little baby on the way! :)

Oh I love Scentsy and I've seriously been considering selling them myself! I am absolutly in love with the Arkansas Razorback warmer and I would love to try the Ekimo Kisses scent :0)

Sarah Lynn - you would LOVE Scentsy. Thank you for the random number generator. I knew it was something that simple. You rock!

Stephanie - Scentsy is truly amazing. Eskimo Kiss is an amazing smell. I love it and so do my friends. Being a consultant is awesome. I am still new at it and learning the ropes but am enjoying making money selling something that I love. :)

Funny how many hits you get when you do a giveaway, eh? Nick and I almost always have a candle burning. I was thrilled to find a man that appreciates scents and candles as much as I do. I am so boring, I liked the classic holder in black. I know we'd love Autumn Sunset or Satin Sheets. We love this time of year because of all of the apple and pumpkin scented candles that are out!

I'd love to win!! It won't let me view the site from here so I'll have to check it on my pc later. Yay! But count me in!

I have never heard of scentsy before. The catalog is cute - so many options! I really liked the smooth stone collection and the clean breeze scent.

Okay, you know I'm addicted now and I would buy everything if I could afford it! I definitely want something for Bayley's room and I LOVE the Doodlebud warmer. Also would like the Taro plugin for the bathrooms. :) So eventually I'll be able to order those.
I like the baked apple pie scent and would LOVE to put that in Bayley's room near her trash can and laundry basket (nothing like the smell of urine from a potty accident. lol).

It's been a busy week. But I've come back to make my request: I want the capri with the clove/cinnamon. It was a tough decision because I also loved the bandana and rustic star, but the capri would look nicest in my kitchen. Pick me! :)
