I was supposed to go to Disney World right after Christmas with my family (my parents’ gift to us), but I’ve been having anxiety issues lately and at the last minute I canceled because I didn’t want to take the 14 hour drive (7 hours each way) in the car.
But, I ended up having a nice quiet week to myself. I had already requested off at work so I kept those days and enjoyed doing NOTHING for an entire week. No work, no school, no P90-whatever workouts. I ate what I wanted, watched whatever I wanted and bought whatever I wanted! I basically told myself it was okay to blow some money to A) make me feel better for chickening out and B) because I had money I had been saving for Disney anyway.
Other than junk food and meals, here’s a few things I picked up last week:
Well, one of the first things I did was check Yankee Candle’s website for post-holiday clearance sales. No, the pic above is not what I bought, but it is my entire candle collection. I’m sure it pales in comparison to many others, and if so, I want what they have, too.
I ended up buying five large jar candles at half off: Apple Cider, Bavarian Pretzel, Fireside, Pinecone & Tassel and Yuletide Spice.
I was only familiar with Apple Cider. It’s one of my favorite candles. Unfortunately, it was not packaged very well and arrived broken. I emailed the company and they quickly responded and have shipped a new one out to me free of charge. After dealing that, I hated to throw a perfectly good candle away. Upon closer inspection, the big broken chunk of glass still fit perfectly with the rest of the jar. I used some quick bond glue and it seems to be working.
