Oh, yes, it's ladies night...

...and I'm feeling right! Woohoo! Oh my GOODNESS you do not know how much I need this night. :) I'm so excited to see you guys and to hold Sarah's baby Logan (you are going to let me hold him, right Sarah?) and do a little shopping on my tooshie without a toddler squirming out of a cart or a baby howling the "it's time to go home" siren.

If you don't know what I'm talking about then obviously I've missed you, and I'm beyond sorry about that! We're having a Fall/Holiday in July Candle party at my place tonight at 6:30. Actually, many of you were meant to get a personal invitation in the mail, but our consultant was busy with the annual PartyLite conference and totally forgot about it. It's okay, she's been forgiven. :)  So even though it's really late notice it's not too late to jump in and join us if you're just hearing about it. You can even bring a friend!

So what will you do as a guest at this party? I'm glad you asked. :) I can tell you one thing is for sure: you can fill your belly with pumpkin bread, and snicker doodles, and fruit, and taco dip. That sounds like enough of a party to me! I cheated and bought Arby's sweet tea for this evening. Ever since Kim told me it was the best there is I knew I had to buy a gallon for myself. I sampled. She's right. I think cheating was a good move on my part. Haha.

And aside from food and fun, we will get to be among the very first people to check out the brand new products in the Fall and Holiday 2011 collection. I wait all year for this darn catalog to come out. We are especially lucky, because there is only one week out of the entire year that all of PartyLite's catalogs are active (which means more to choose from!) and this just happens to be that week. I may have done that on purpose. ;)

I'm a nerd so of course there are little gifts for everyone who comes. I rarely get to host get togethers that don't center around children, so this time I made party favors for adults, haha. And because I big time love my friends, I've decided that at the party we're going to do a drawing for $10 off of someone's order on me! Free money adds to the fun, right? Combined with the other guest specials, someone could be getting a really sweet deal!

Above everything, I just really need a time to chat with adults, unwind from a busy month, and have a good time. Don't let lack of babysitter (bring those babies if you have to!) or getting a shower or whatever stop you from coming. It will be fun and informal...and if everyone promises not to kill me...I might be playing some festive music to get us in the holiday spirit. :) It may be SCORCHING outside, but inside we'll be dreaming of cooler days and candlelight!

Just for fun, here are the goodies I have my eye on for tonight!


I love whimsical holiday decor, and this little guy is on sale for $6. He WILL be mine, haha. Love the purple sparkly hat! 


Back in the day (when I sold candles) this was a super popular item, but I never nabbed him for myself. The jolly man used to be $49.95, and now he's $12 so I might not be able to pass him up. His toy sack is actually a tealight holder, and this comes packaged in a really nice box with two scroll parchments for kids to write their Christmas wish lists on. If nothing else this will be a great budget friendly gift for someone this Christmas!


The apothecary collection is my FAVORITE. I love the 3-wick holder, because it's so versatile. I might fill my with fruit! It even comes with a lid. Love it!


I adore Christmas villages, so this votive holder is right up my alley!


The "Enchanted Woodland" votive holder really is enchanting. It's gorgeous! I can already picture it in a Fall or Winter candlescape

So have a great day, and I hope to see you ladies tonight! Now I've got to dash around and make sure I don't have anything totally embarrassing laying around the house. :)




*Oh, I almost forgot! If you're reading this blog and you live far away or can't make it tonight, you can still get in on our party! Just go to www.partylite.biz/connie and type in "Adrien Robert" as your host! You'll see the exclusive sale items and guest specials on the left hand column that only show up if you're affiliated with a party. First person to place an online order will get a DOZEN FREE tealights from me!  I'll ship anywhere in the U.S.

Yay! Can't wait! That's totally fine Cassie. :) Evie might be hanging out with her uncle John this evening, but Grace will be here and she's able to play around now. There shouldn't be any lit candles that are low enough to reach. :)

Adrien said...

Hey Jackie, there's a teal bar in the middle of the page that says something about "Shopping for a party?" And there's a link to click to look up your host. Just type in my name and then you should have access to all the specials!
