Hi gals! I've had so much fun seeing what movies ya'll like to watch during the holidays. There were many mentioned that I have never watched so this season, I hope to pop me some popcorn and settle in for some new movie watchin'! Oh yeah! And I nearly forgot one of my other favorites...Christmas With the Kranks! GREAT movie! I laugh and cry! I just finished watching it with my parents. If you haven't seen it, you MUST. Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis are so great in this movie.
I wanted to share a great deal with ya'll that Yankee Candle is offering. It's a buy 2 get 2 sale on their large jar candles. This applies to the large jar candles and their large 2-wick candles. If you did not recieve your coupon in the mail, never fear, I've provided the links for you. Just clip and present to your nearest Yankee retailer. Does not apply to outlet stores or Pier 1. You can shop online (there is a coupon code) or at any participating retailer!

Yankee Candle Retail Coupon
Here's a little hint: The large jars are usually priced between $23 and $25 depending on where you shop. So, that is about $50 for four candles...essentially. I, myself, have a hard time justifying $50 in candle purchases even if I thought I would give them away...which I probably wouldn't bc I love candles so much. I'm a Scrooge. So! My mom and I are splitting the coupon. So we each get two candles for the price of one.
And one more hint!: Do you know how to properly smell a Yankee Candle? I usually just stick my nose right on up close and take a little wiff but I learned how wrong I was. My moms friend went to the Yankee Candle factory in Vermont *I think* and there learned that the proper way to smell the candle is to remove the lid and sniff inside of the lid itself! It really does make a difference! Not nearly as strong and probably more true to what they smell like when they burn.
So get to printing your coupons! Let me know if you use one! I'd love to know what scent you get. I'm thinking either Vanilla Cupcake, Shortbread and/or Home Sweet Home. My mom is hoping for Cinnamon Sugar and Jack Frost. We'll see!
Offer expires November 30th so hurry!
EDIT: I ended up getting 'Home Sweet Home' and 'Shortbread Cookie'. I also got a 'Cranberry Peppermint' votive and a 'White Chocolate Mint' tart. Mom got 'Candied Apple' and 'Jack Frost' as well as a 'Coconut Bay' tart and a 'Bayberry' tart. We had so much fun selecting our scents!
