Scentsy, kids, etc!

Wow! The weather has been awesome here in Iowa the past few days - I've even been able to open the windows at night for fresh air. Usually it's so hot and humid in August it isn't even an option. I'm so excited - today I got my Scentsy order! I've been waiting somewhat impatiently. My super-great friend Jamie in Wyoming introduced me to Scentsy last month when I was visiting. Scentsy offers these cool electric candle warmers/night lights. The one I have is "embellish" and I ordered several different scent bars. LOVE IT! Jamie bought Analise one for college (they can't have candles in the dorms for obvious reasons) - she has the "retro chic" warmer. So cute! Thank you Jamie!

Tim's sister Luann, his mom Bonnie and I spent all day Saturday looking for decorations for Bonnie and Leland's upcoming 50th Anniversary Party! We had so much fun shopping all over Iowa City and Coralville. If anybody has ideas for a 50th please let me know!

Taylor just finished marching band camp - he is so tan from being outside so much. They have a great line-up of music this fall. I can't wait to go to football games and watch them. Analise will also be in marching band this year - in college! Yay! I won't be able to see her as much but we have plans to go to parent's weekend at UNI.

One night last week, after dinner, when the evening light was just right I took our golden retriever Lexi to this super-old cemetery down the lane to see if I could get some good pictures. It was fun experimenting but I didn't get the shots I really wanted so I'm going back soon.

That's it for now! If you need any Mary Kay products for fall just let me know - I'll be placing an order soon.
xoxo -Em
