First signs of fall...

There are a few things that put me in a PSL sippin', boot wearin', fireplace snugglin' mood. 

And most of those come to me via Bath and Body Works

Now, I'm with ya when y'all get aggravated seeing leaf garlands at HobLob right next to the American flags and flip flop signs, but there's something about that Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin scent that just can't get here fast enough!

Honestly, I would probably have that candle burning in my house all year long. 

It's my favorite smell in the whole wide world. 

Well, other than baby's breath. 

The actual thing, not the weird corsage-filler

Amazingly enough, I caught an IG friend's post about B&BW releasing their fall candles early online. In July. ON MY BIRTHDAY. 


Throw a coupon code in there and this girl's fingers are taptaptapping away ordering her some candles! 

They came 3-5 days later, and I was the epitome of restraint when I put them away in my candle cabinet (yes, it's a thing) and saved them for crisper weather.

My last little bit of my Sundress candle burned up Saturday, and I lit that Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin up faster than you can spell Y-U-M-M-Y.

I burned it. All day. It's half gone. Already. 

Along with my classic favorite, I also ordered Sweater Weather and Leaves. Leaves has been a favorite for a few years now, and Sweater Weather is fairly new and I am in love with it!

The good news is that it's not early anymore, and the stores are stocking some of their fall scents already. I went into our store on Friday and got an armful of the anti-bacterial hand soap and wallflowers.  

As I was checking out, I heard the manager talking about having to report how many of a certain gift set they had sold that day. 

That gift set was a fall sampler. 

Well, it's only the Christian thing to do to help a manager out, right? 

So one of those little bad boys came home with me, and it is awesome! Trust me, if you love fall scents, you need this. I mean, the soap in there is the Pumpkin Pecan Waffle

I die. 

If I can't eat it, I sure as shootin' want to rub it all over my hands! 

Sorry, I can't find this gift set online. Hopefully it's coming, though! I got over-anxious and already used the Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin lotion and body wash that was in the gift set. And the precious little pumpkin-shaped shower pouf! 

I was going to end this post with a BBW wish list, but that's just too durn long. 

Ain't nobody got time for dat! 

I will mention the two things I can't live without, though. I'll be snatching these bad boys up as soon as I see them! 

I sorta wanna taste it. #truth

C'mon, now people. A tailgate candle?!?! Dear heavens. My life isn't complete without it!

Happy almost fall!
