Exciting News!

Have you ever heard of Scentsy?
It's a wickless candle system.  Scented wax is melted in a warmer with the heat of a light bulb.  Yes, a light bulb!  

No more black soot on your walls from the evaporated wax.  
No more fire danger - how many times have you left the house or gone to bed, forgetting to blow out your candles?  I have done it WAY too many times.
In fact, you can leave your Scentsy warmer on all. day. long.

The big warmers use a 25-watt light bulb.
The smallest warmers use a 15-watt light bulb.

I've used, and loved, Scentsy for years.
It wasn't until this past month that I decided to become a Scentsy Consultant.
And I'm really excited about it!

So excited that I want to share this product with you!

When you order a Scentsy warmer, there are a ton of different designs to choose from.  And there are warmers that sit on your counter or table and warmers that plug right into your wall.  Here are a few:

 {Full size warmer - Jane}

{Plug-in warmer - Grotto}

They even have seasonal warmers:
{Full-size warmer - Blizzard}

 {Full-size warmer - Fright Night}

And what, you ask, does the wax look like?  The wax comes in little squares (or big squares if you order a brick instead of a bar) and is packaged like this:

As you can see, Scentsy offers more than wax.  There are also room sprays, Scent Circles for your car, Travel Tins to take with you when you travel, Scentsy Solid Perfumes and Scentsy Buddies, the cutest little stuffed animals that you slide a Scent Pak into.  Oh, and lets not forget the Fragrance Foam, an anti-bacterial hand foam.

There is a HUGE variety of scents.
There really is something for everyone!
I love the Corner Cafe line - I like that my house can smell like something delicious that I've baked when I haven't even lifted a finger.

There's also a Fall/Winter line (your house can smell like Christmas with the Festival of Trees or Christmas Cottage scents), a Spa line, a Romance line, a Scentsy Man line, a Seven Seas line and a Favorites line.

If you'd like to try Scentsy, check out my website!
I'm having a Launch Party, which you can order under.  From my homepage, click on "Buy From Party" next to "Michelle's Open House Launch Party!".

Try it, you'll like it!
(Wise words from Yo Gabba Gabba - Ha!)

Scentsy really is a great product.  I will never go back to burning candles again!  And I get comments all the time on how good my house smells.  All. The. Time.  No joke!

Let me know if you have any questions about any of the Scentsy products.

And YOU can sell Scentsy, too.  It's fun and easy!  Ask me about becoming a consultant.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL (and safe!) Thanksgiving!!!

Easy Canvas Prints {Review}

Christmas is right around the corner - can you believe it?!
I'm sure you're all getting your Christmas shopping started, or at least making lists of what gifts to give.  I'm pretty much DONE with Christmas for my kids!  I am SO happy about that!  I just need a few stocking stuffers and then it's time to focus on husband and extended family gifts.

I am so happy to share a wonderful company with you today!  Easy Canvas Prints is an online canvas company that can help you turn your photos to canvas.

I had an 11x14 canvas print of my family done by Easy Canvas Prints.
They were so wonderful to work with!  And I love that I now have a current family photo hanging in my house.  I've lost about 30 pounds since the one we've had up was taken.  So it was definitely time for an update!

I love the quality of the canvas that I received.  I've had photos printed on canvas before from other online companies, and I can definitely tell a difference in the quality.

And their customer service is awesome.  They were so patient with me!

So if you're thinking about turning any of your photos to canvas, give Easy Canvas Prints a try.  And if you "Like" them on their Facebook page, you will get 50% off of your next order, plus free shipping!  I love free shipping, don't you?  :)

Soy Lime Fajitas

Oh boy, you guys are gonna love me for sharing this recipe with you!!!

I originally got this recipe from my cousin, April, from Sweet Ruby {check out her website, she's got super cute stuff!}.  And now we make it all the time.  Thank you, April, for introducing us to this super delicious meal!!!

And not only is this recipe super delicious, it's healthy, too.  And I love finding healthy AND delicious recipes.

1.5 to 2 lbs chicken or skirt steak, cut into strips
1 med onion, sliced
2 large peppers, different colors, sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tsp chili powder
2 Tbsp oil

Combine soy sauce, lime juice, chili powder, and oil in large bag (last time I used half the oil and it was totally fine).  Slice meat and place in bag with marinade.  Let marinate for two hours in fridge.  You can freeze it at this point if you want to do a freezer meal.

Cut up your veggies in strips and set aside.  Sometimes I'll throw in some mushrooms, too, if I have them.

Cook your meat fully and remove from pan.  Cook your veggies in the same pan until softened.  I usually salt and pepper my veggies.  Add the meat back to the pan once the veggies are softened and let it heat through.

I usually buy the raw tortillas, cook them up and serve my fajitas on them.  They are so yummy!  And while the second side is cooking on the stove, I will melt a little cheese on the tortilla.

Add your meat and veggies, a little sour cream, maybe some Cholula, and you are good to go!

This is one of our go-to meals.
You should definitely give it a try!

Thank you to Bountiful Baskets for providing me with red peppers!  I love getting red peppers in my basket - it means we will be having Soy Lime Fajitas that week :)

Thanks for stopping by!
