Scents of the Season - DAY TWO AND THREE of GIVEAWAY

Thank you everyone for all the wonderful birthday emails and messages yesterday. You all just made my day!

Yesterday was a wonderful birthday. I turned... well let's just say that I turned one year older than last year. ahem. :)

The sign outside a boutique we went into. LOVE it!

Hubby took the day off and planned a wonderful time doing of one of our favorite activities.... Thrift Store Shopping! It was a blast! We hit 8 boutiques {Goodwill} and even a Fancy Store {Goodwill Outlet}. It was huge! We found some great deals and I just had the time of my life with my sweetheart.

Thank you hubby for a wonderful day...
and for making me laugh so much along the way!

Unfortunately we were gone all day, and I couldn't post Day 2 of the Giveaway. So today I'm giving you two ways to enter and adding two prizes to the Giveaway Gift.

As I've mentioned, fall is truly my favorite time of year. I love all the wonderful tastes: pumpkin spice, warm apple cider, hot coffee on a cool morning. And then there are all scents: the fresh smell after the rain, cinnamon sticks, and my favorite candle scent ever... Warm Apple Pie by Mainstays. It has an amazing scent that fills the whole room. I actually burn this scent year around.

So today I want to know what your favorite scent or taste of the season is. What puts you in the mood for Autumn? Leave a comment below to be entered in the Giveaway!

For second way to enter, become a follower of "too Blessed to Stress." Leave a separate comment below so I'll know. Already a follower? Just let me know in the comments below.
The first gift added to the Giveaway is my favorite scent: a small jar Warm Apple Pie candle. It is too yummy for words!

The second gift is one of my favorite tastes: $5 gift card to Starbucks. Treat yourself to a yummy pumpkin spice latte or a salted caramel cider, or whatever taste makes you feel all warm and cozy.

So let me know, what are your favorite tastes and scents of the season? 


  1. I am a follower of your blog. I love spiced pumpkin scents for my candles!

  2. Happy Birthday Emily! Sounds like you had a wonderful day with your Love, what a sweetie to take the day off and spend time with you!

    I'd say my favorite "smell" of fall is clove/cinnamon/spice...does that make sense? My Mom always puts on a "spice pot" that has cloves, cinnamon sticks, and some all spice floating in water and simmers it on the stove. The house smells heavenly.

  3. My very favorite scent is Cinnamon Bear (Scentsy), but any and all cinnamon smells are fabulous! Also, anything related to baking(sugar cookie, vanilla cupcake, etc) :)

  4. I'm a follower!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm glad I'm not going to be the only dork at the meeting! You bring the snacks, and I'll bring the soda!

  5. This is fun! I love a candle called "leaves" from Bath and Body Works.

  6. My favorite scent year round is vanilla sugar... or blueberry. Or any other berry.

  7. Hello, dear Emily-Friend! I picked a good day to check your blog, hee hee! :-)
    I LOVE pumpkin...well, pumpkin anything! But I especially love Pumpkin cookies...YUM!! The crisp mornings and changing leaves put me in the Fall mood. Fall is my FAVORITE season--LOVE it.
    Oh, and yes, I'm still a follower, PROMISE...just a little MIA lately. :(
    So glad your Birthday was so awesome!! Great pic of you and your hubby. :)

  8. I love cranberry, orange, and clove scents!
