And The Winner Is.............................

Clinique Happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The second runner up is Escada Into the Blue!

The search is over, until next Christmas. I realize that most people don't put this much time, effort and research into buying a car.

We went to the mall as a family today. Steve is soooooo kind and generous. He decided that since we like both of these a whole lot that he would just get me two. That is sooo him. I am so happy with my final choice.

I doubt they sell more than about two bottles of Into the Blue a year, but I love the smell........ crisp and clean. It is so me to find some unheard of fragrance to love. I always seem to order things at restaurants that they have to dig out of the back of the freezer. Like meatloaf or something along the lines of that. Instead of going for a Coke or something normal, I will buy some Peach Nectar that has dust on it. You get my point.

Steve did say that he hoped I would not remind him of Orange Pledge or orange dish detergent wearing the Happy. Oh well, I guess the only perfect fragrance will be found in heaven! ha!

I have not read at all about the perfume dilemma until tonight, but I have to say I LOVE Into the Blue! I bought it at TJ Maxx about six months ago and it is the ONLY perfume I've used the entire bottle of! I normally rotate three or four bottles of perfume but I've worn several squirts of it everyday since I got it. Now it's gone... :(
haha I hope you love it!

I enjoy Happy. I didn't read through the comments on your other post but did anyone mention those neat sets they have at Sephora? The sampler set of perfume where they give you about 8 to try for a while and when you pick your favorite, the set has a certificate to exchange for a full size bottle?

Are you still teaching private art lessons? I have a friend looking for someone.
You are making me laugh! You are so right about you always wanting something NO ONE else would ever want! ha! That's why I love you!
Hahahaha. You make me laugh. I can't wait to smell Into the Blue. I love Clinique Happy.

Now I'm curious to know what Into the Blue smells like. All of your perfume posts have been very helpful. I got my mom Light Blue for Christmas and I'm thinking about a new scent for 2010 myself.

I looked into my files and found the name of my mom's FAVORITE perfume ever. She has tried lots of perfumes over the years and was SO disappointed when she couldn't find it. She had worn it since her early 20s, and she said women AND men would stop her on the street because they had to know what she was wearing. It is called Musk Oil Perfume.

I surprised her with it for
Mother's Day. Here's the link:

You will see a lotion and body wash in that fragrance when you open the page.

I forgot to say you don't need to use much at all. At little of that perfume goes a long way. :)

Ebay is an awesome resource for perfume that isn't sold anymore. Here are a ton of links for Escada tropical punch.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
