Groundhog Day . . . and they say six more weeks of winter. Well that's a bummer. From what I've been hearing on weather reports today, we could about four inches of snow in my area tomorrow. We'll see! We haven't really had much snow this winter. It'll snow a bit, maybe lightly cover the yard, then warm up and melt it all anyway. I'm not complaining about that, but I am sick of the cold. Bleah.
I went shopping this morning and found that my Walmart has totally redone their candle/wax aisle again. They cut the wax melts section in half, at least! They're going very heavy on the candles and oils now. That sucks big time for wax melt fans like me. I noticed all of the fall and holiday scents that were still there and marked down last time I was shopping, were gone now. I didn't see them on an end cap clearance, didn't see them in the big bin o' wax they usually have center-aisle nearby, didn't see them back in the seasonal room where I thought they might have last traces of Christmas stuff. Huh, gone. Bummer.
When I was looking at frying pans, many aisles away from the wax section, I noticed a lady setting up a new end cap display . . . with all the discounted fall wax! I was like ooh ooh oooooh, anxious to dive in and grab some low priced goodies! She had two carts of wax and candles blocking the way though, and was still stocking the display. So I lingered in the frying pan aisle, keeping an eye on her so I could swoop in as soon as she was done. Nope. She was just poking along. So I moved down towards that end of the aisle to at least get a better look and saw BHG/Scentsationals for $1.50-1.00, the Yankee ones for $1.50, and Mainstays for a mere $0.25! I'm not supposed to be spending extra money these days but dang, I wanted to get some of these because I know they'll still be fine by the time fall and winter roll around again! I lingered as long as I could then got fed up and left to finish my shopping. It just kept nagging at the back of my mind though and I headed back to that randomly placed wax clearance end cap display about fifteen minutes later, and she was STILL poking along, still with carts in the way! UGH! I could have been like 'Excuse me,' and reached over but since I wanted to do some sniffing and not just grab blindly, I felt weird about it and just abandoned the whole idea. Darn pokey-ass stockers who think no one cares because they're randomly placed in a low traffic area!
Oh well, it saved me money I don't need to be spending. Except that, uh, I did buy two regular priced ones over in the newly shrunken wax section.
Island Melon Coconut - 'Be one in a melon with this unique, mouthwatering, melon coconut scent. Sun kissed melon with the added sweetness of vanilla. Embrace the pure freshness!'
I've had this one before and really enjoyed it. (Read my Melted review from last year HERE.) This is so summery, but not overly sweet or juicy. There is a warmth that just works in this.
Summer Strawberry Mimosa - 'Sweet summer strawberries, sun-ripe raspberries and island sugarcane are blended with hints of fresh cut pineapple and sparkling French champagne.'
I don't usually go for champagne scents but I didn't know it was in this and I don't really pick up on it even now that I know it's there. I mainly get a fun strawberry scent with a little added brightness from the pineapple. I suppose if I really think about it I can detect tiny hints of the champagne. This is a smooth, sweet, happy scent for spring and summer.
And then I got home and found that the Rosegirls site is open for pre-orders. *forehead smack* Did I not just say repeatedly that I shouldn't be spending extra money right now? So why would I even bother looking at the site?! And why did I have to see that they have Peppermint Coconut Mallow available?!?! AND a peppermint-vanilla-waffle cone scent?!?!?! I don't know if I can resist this. I've managed to for several hours now but I don't know if I can hold out. That sort of signature Rosegirls creamy note in a vanilla-mint blend might be my dream scent for Christmas! It might not be back around again closer to Christmas, or ever! And the Peppermint Coconut Mallow is just an amazingly awesome favorite scent going back to our old Muffin Club days. Ugh, what to do?!
I have not logged on to either of my games yet today and that's making me kinda twitchy. Yesterday I started working my low level Death school character again in Wizard101. I found I really don't like her. The Death spells seem so limited. So I switched to a different lower character in the evening, a level 38 Balance school character that had been my main one back when I was playing a few years ago with hubby. I already like this character better than my Death char, and I've found she must have originally been a Storm school character because she has a full arsenal of those spells. Interesting. I also think I'm about *thisclose* to getting hubby to start playing again! That would be so cool!
Alright, well, I have some laundry to finish and then have to think about supper. Then maybe I can finally log on and play.
How is your Friday going?
Got any weekend plans?
Eagles or Patriots?
