Loving Lately.

Happy Friday!!!!  It has been a long week (thank you Daylight Savings) but Friday is here and I'm looking forward to my alarm clock not going off at 4:30 am tomorrow morning.  :)

I thought I'd post a few things I'm loving lately, and a few pictures of the boys (who I love all of the time) and wish you a happy weekend.

1. 3 Wick Candles

I think it can be overwhelming going into Bath & Body Works, and I am for sure not taking two small boys into BBW.  ;)  My friend Haley posted a picture of her new home on FB a while ago, and I saw she had a 3 wick in the picture....Haley has awesome taste, and so when she told me it was the only scent she buys, I knew it was a good one and ordered the Mahogany Teakwood High Intensity 3 Wick Candle.  IT IS AMAZING.  I've been burning it every night after work and it just fills out house with a great fresh, aroma that is both masculine and fruity at the same time.  If I'd read the description I would have never bought it.....but I am so glad I did! 

The Midnight Blue Citrus is a nice scent too, but much less intense.  Which may be a positive for some, but I like a candle with a punch.  :)  I was hoping the Midnight Blue Citrus would smell like the Capri Blue Volcano candle  (which is AMAZING...and also expensive, lol) and it is similar, but not the same.  However, if I was a die hard Volcano lover, looking for a less expensive option, I think this would be totally up your alley.

And the 3 wick candles are on sale today for $13, and an extra $10 off your order of $30 which is A DEAL!!!  A co-worker said she loves the Endless Summer scent, so I ordered one of those and some others for Easter gifts.  :)

2. Safeway Monopoly

If you're playing Monopoly, you're probably in the same boat as I am....your game board is filled up, except for the rare pieces.  :)  It's been fun playing this year and Chandler likes to too - I give him the game pieces I already have when he's in the bath and he sticks them to the edge of the tub.  Clean up is super easy, and it keeps him busy. 

Are you playing too?

3. Bunco

I got to play Bunco with my group this week (we went from playing monthly to quarterly) and it was fun to see the girls!  I really noticed a change in my outlook afterwards....I don't get a lot of free time where I'm not at work, or managing kids and so it was super nice to just have 2 hours to visit, enjoy a drink (see the recipe below) and roll dice.

Bunco Punch by Dallas
1 1/2 cup lemon rum
6 limes, juiced
1/2 cup mint leaves, crushed
1/2 cup sugar
Seltzer Water or Tonic to taste (probably 2+ cups)

Mix & pour over ice - SO refreshing!

4. All things SPRING!

Oh man, I am normally not a Spring DLS type person (I like it when I leave for work in the light and DLS kind of kills that) but it has been awesome having more light at night with the boys.  This week I've been making more things that require baking vs cooking (Beecher's Mac & Cheese, lasagna, etc.) and so when we get home I stick whatever it is in the oven and then we head out to play, go for a walk, or help Clint feed cows.  Normally it's a rush to get home and get all of the things done, but the extra daylight has us staying up a bit later and just enjoying {home}.


What are you loving this week?

Happy Friday! 

We have a fun weekend ahead; a bull sale, a birthday party and family pictures on my side. 


  1. Hey Miss Darcy!
    You have a head start to spring vs. South Dakota. Yesterday, we got a wintry mix that turned into 3" of snow. Today got into the low 40's, it was balmy with no wind. The Black Hills and south got 8-11" of snow. From the news it sounds like central and eastern SD got freezing rain and all the issues that go with ice.

    What am I loving this week? Healthy baby calves and good first time mammas. My hens started laying and I'm getting 8-12 eggs a day.

    Sounds like you and the family are doing well. Happy Spring!
