You remember that business I said I was starting? Well, I am now an independent consultant for Scentsy products. And man oh man, I love me some Scentsy!

Scentsy is a candle company that promotes the melting of wax through a light bulb instead of a flame. Therefore, it is a lot safer than your normal candle. You can have it lit all day, all night, and while you are away from home. Also, if your kids touch the wax, they won't burn their hands because the wax doesn't get hot enough. What Mom wouldn't like that?
Scentsy sales a varitety of products, such as, large and medium warmers, wall plug ins, roam spray, antibacterial hand soap, air fresheners, stuffed animals with changeable scents to put in them, and more! Its unbelievable the stuff you can get!
There are also over 80 scents you can choose from, and most of them are to die for! My favorite scents include lush gardina, spiced grapefruit for those fall months, and clean linen.

Every Saturday, I will be promoting my business here and give you updates on new products! Lets call it, Scentsy Saturday!

If you are interested in any of the items you have seen, you can go to my personal website here, and look at more information and buy the products directly from there. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.

Jumping Back In

Okay, so I am back. It's been a long break, and about time I show up again. A lot has happened in the past couple of months; therefore, I did not have time to blog. I just don't know how you Mom's find the time to sit down and add pictures and stories that seem to take me hours to put down. Bravo to you ladies!

Okay, so the plan after Italy was to find a house in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area and move there, but I guess all plans find a detour somehow. Gregg and I found a bunch of houses in TX that we fell in love with, and we were ready to commit. However, the VA was not so ready. Gregg and I tried applying for a home loan, but it was just not in the cards for us at that time. The VA turned us down because we were moving overseas and did not have a guaranteed job in the states, and was very disappointed in the fact that Gregg was leaving the Army. Hence, the detour.

Our detour is coming back home to Memphis, TN. It wasn't exactly what we wanted at the time, but we are truly happy in our lives right now. We have a beautiful home we rent out of, and family at our finger tips.

[Gotta love phone cameras!]
When we got here, we that it was important for me to find a job, and luckily, my old workplace asked me to join their time again..ecstatic doesn't even begin to describe how I felt. So, I am working as a CTA at Cole Pain Therapy Group. Gregg will be starting back school in the fall at University of Memphis, so we have been busy getting him all set up for that.

So, the blog will be changing from our life in Italy to our transition back home. I will be giving you updates on the home aspect, such as, decorating, organizing, gardening, losing weight and more. It will also be a place for me to introduce my new business that I will talk about in another post.

So, grab some coffee, take a seat, and dive into Because I Said So.
