While on vacation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I came across an adorable little gift shop selling, of all things, Poo-Pourri (a bathroom deodorizer) with an incredibly clever name! I purchased two yummy smelling sprays and immediately came home to check out their website, because with a name like Poo-Pourri, scents named “No.2” & “Poo La La,” they had to have some hilarious marketing and I was correct!
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) has a sweet, floral aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Lavender’s aroma is great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime; add to bath or diffuse to create a calming and comforting environment. Lavender essential oil may compliment your favorite shampoos, lotions and skin care products. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it.

Now, do you see a single description word that would lead you to believe this little bottle of lavender is an aphrodisiac? Nope, neither do I. Except, I know from experience, that it is! 😉
I’ve never understood the saying, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”
If I don’t get enough sleep, I AM dead!
This girl needs her sleep… and come to find out, it’s healthy to get 8-9 hours of sleep, each night. Maria Emmerich, health guru and New York Times Best Selling Author reports that getting enough sleep aids in weight loss! Yay!
This weekend is calling for rain, and the rain Gods were calling down on me this evening, “Juanita, Guess what? We’re going to make it rain at 7am, so you can sleep in and feed the horses later in the day…” Oh My Gosh, do they know how to put a smile on my face! And if that wasn’t enough, this Saturday night is ROLL YOUR CLOCK BACK AN HOUR, which means I get even more sleep!
I love sleep. I’ll sleep when I’m dead, but I’m gonna sleep, now, too!

But, it’s also known as paradise. Horse & cattle paradise! Gorgeous sunrises & magnificent sunsets. Lots of land, a little less people and way less concrete! We love rainy days. We love daylight savings time, because it gets dark at 6pm and when it’s dark, the work day is complete. There are a bazillion Texas stars overhead and cricket noises while we fall asleep. No traffic jams, no sirens, no lights… it’s beautiful out here. But it’s not for everyone. You have to be able to handle snakes, scorpions, fire ants and poop smells. We love it!
