smells........

Oh how I love yummy smells. It's an obsession that has gotten me in trouble more than a few times. I used to use candles all the time, until I practically burned my house down.

Now I stick with wallflowers from Bath & Body Works, and Scentsy. My favorite smells are anything with coconut in them. Mmmmmm!

I can't use anything but Gain laundry soap and softener.

If I smell something I don't like I pull out the Pine Sol and start scrubbing. I don't like the lemon scent, and my husband bought that for me the last time I asked him to go shopping for me. I had to go right back out and get the right kind.

I love the smell of freshly scrubbed kids. I love reading to my kids after they take their shower when their hair is still wet.

I love the smell of Axe body spray. My hubby has learned that if he wants some extra snuggling he needs to spray that on his handsome self, and he better have gum in his mouth. I don't like the smell of breath - especially when I'm pregnant.

I love the smell of rain.

I love the smell of fall. I can't even tell what that is, but you can smell it in the air.

I love the smell of freshly baked bread. I've got some in the oven right now and my mouth is watering!

I love coming home and just smelling my house. It smells like us. I don't know if that's good or bad, but it's home.

good things:
central air & heating (one for the morning and the other for the afternoon!)
getting my house clean before 9:00 a.m.
freshly scrubbed toilets

You know, it's funny. I had never thought about it before, but you have always had a thing about smells, haven't you! So funny! I think it is amazing how smells can trigger feelings and memories!

That's funny! A smell I love is my bedroom. I always tell David it smells like sleep and he thinks I'm crazy. But it helps me sleep and I love it.

I love the smell of cleaness!!! It makes me feel calm. P.S. I love Gain soap too. But im too cheep to buy it. Only when I have a newborn do I let myself get it.

That is HILARIOUS!!!! It's fun to get to know you a little better through this. Smells are a funny thing and being pregnant seems to enhance the nose just a tad!

Ang, this is such a prego post! Although I must say that your house does ALWAYS smell lovely when I visit. Have a wonderful day full of sweet things to tease your rosy nosy with.
