Another favorite thing for this time of the year is making my house smell delicious. I bought some was melts from Walmart and they are simple mouth-watering. Also, they are only $2.00 each. Much better than what I usually spend on my Scentsy wax melts. However the throw isn't as good as Scentsy they are still wonderful. My favorites this time were:
Pumpkin Maple Syrup
Better Homes and Gardens
Banana Pumpkin Bread
Better Homes and Gardens
Pumpkin Apple Muffins
All of these have left me hankering for some really good fall pumpkin food. But that isn't the only way I like to 'smell the place up'. Bath and Body Works had some of my favorite candles on sale. And who can pass up a good deal? I bought some candles and got some of my favorite show gel and body cream free!!
Marshmallow Fireside is a pretty popular one. It has notes of toasted marshmallows, smoldering wood, fire-roasted vanilla, crystallized amber. You can really close your eyes and think you are sitting at the campfire with a marshmallow on a stick. Yum!
But my very favorite of all of them is Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. It's notes are harvest pumpkin, spiced clove, vanilla cream, and brown sugar. Oh my gosh! And the lid to this was is beautiful.
While we are still talking about the wonderful smells of fall I got a new gift set from Grove Collaborative. It is the Apple Cider scent for the kitchen. Let me tell you if you like the smell of apple cider you will love these products. I can't clean the kitchen often enough. This set also came with a soy candle and a hand towel. I love their towels so much. For all 5 pieces it was a steal at $22.59. And free shipping. Do any of you use Grove Collaborative? Love them! They have the best walnut scrubbers pads!

Another of my September favorites is Sonic Corn Dogs. They were on sale September 27 for $.50 each. We stocked up on some for the freezer. They won't last long since Harley likes them for her snack when she gets out of school.
And last, but not least was my favorite book of September. I purchased Hillary Clinton's book What Happened on Audible. I loved it. Of course I really like and admire Hillary Clinton. She is a strong independent woman. One who has been through a lot in her life. And yet she is still a strong woman. She talks about the 2016 campaign and what she thinks went wrong. She takes the blame for the things that she feels like she had control over. I especially loved chapter 13 where she describes a typical day on the campaign trail. She talks about having regular visits with her hairdresser, Santa. I feel strongly about the sexism and misogynistic beliefs that cost her election. How people could listen to the 'Billy Bush tapes' where Donald Trump brags about sexually assaulting women and then elect him to the highest office of the land will remain a mystery to me. And to Hillary! I agree with her saying "sexism is so pervasive that we stop seeing it" and I agree that the only way we will get sexism out of politics is to get more women into politics. I loved the book. I recommend it to all. (And yes, I know that not all of you were a fan of hers but this is my blog....)
Happy October folks! I wonder what this month will bring us. Do you have any favorites you discovered in September?
