My Scentsy Story


I just LOVE Scentsy! I was introduced to it at work. A co-worker of mine brought in a warmer and I was amazed at how even though our office was down the hall a little ways, I could still smell it instantly when I opened the front door to our building! The wonderful scents almost made me forget I was walking into a calendar full of deadlines! I had to have one for my own home!

I love so many things about my Scentsy warmer! I love first of all that the wonderful fragrances fill my entire home, unlike any other candle I have ever tried. For me, I have discovered that there truly is something to aromatherapy! After a long day at work, I come home and pop in a few cubes of Satin Sheets and can just relax…OK, I relax for a few minutes until one of my six kids need help with homework, or have a sporting event to go to, or want dinner again even though I gave them dinner the day before! Or on Saturdays, I love to open a few windows and put some Clean Breeze cubes in my warmer. Nothing puts me in a cleaning mood (I’m totally serious) like the fresh smell of Clean Breeze! When your house smells clean, you want it to look clean too!

I also love that Scentsy products are safe for my children and my home. The wax does not get hot enough to burn my toddler when he stacks boxes in a chair so he can reach the yummy Cutiepie Cupcake bar in the warmer, nor is there a burning flame so that when my teenagers catapult it off the shelf with a flying football (which I will point out is an OUTSIDE toy) won’t burn my house down to a pile of smoldering ashes.

Aside from the awesomeness of the products themselves, I love my job as a Scentsy Consultant! This is THE most fun job I have ever had! I love attending the parties, meeting new people, sharing memories that each of the scents bring out, and of course, I love how easy it is to make extra income.

If you have any questions about our products, or if you would like more information on how you can join my team and become a Scentsy Consultant yourself, please email me at

Dialog from a 2 and 3 Year-Old


Carson: Mommy I need to go potty.
Me: Are you sure?
Carson: Yes, I need to go potty.

Mom takes Carson to bathroom, sits him on toilet. Waits….and waits…and waits…

Carson: Mommy, my penis is not working
Olivia: I think he needs new batteries

Mom bursts out laughing

Olivia <on to the joke now>: Ya, just stick ’em up his butt!!

I love my life!

All Pooped Out


Saturday night after our Halloween madness, Reed and I took the kids to Chick-fil-a to let them get rid of their candy high on the playscape. Olivia kept complaining of a stomach ache which usually means she needs to poop. I took her to the restroom where she attempted to convince me that her stomach ache was gone and she no longer needed to poop. Obviously anxious to get back to the playscape she had no time for bowel movements. I wouldn’t budge though. Poop or we go home, that was the deal. So in a desperate measure she used my very own secret technique against me…the talking inanimate object. You know what I mean…the broccoli on the fork that’s waving in front of their mouth that says in a high pitched voice, “Come on Olivia…eat me!” The toys in the corner beckon, “Oliiiiivia…put me away!” Or the warm bubbly bath invites, “Come on in Olivia, let’s play!”

Olivia sat there on that Chick-fil-a toilet and with her most serious expression she dared to say, “MOM! I don’t have to poop, listen to the poop, he’s saying ‘I don’t wanna come out, I like it in here!’” I stood there looking blankly at the roll of unused toilet paper and after reflecting for a moment I could only agree with her…I heard him loud and clear afterall, that poop meant business and he wasn’t going anywhere. I shrugged my shoulders and said, “OK then. I’m convinced! Let’s go play!”
