My daughter's always taking about her ride or die friend. I'm like what's a ride or die? I know my age was showing. Apparently it's the same as what I called my best friend aka my BFF. At my daughter's age my BFF's changed a lot as do hers. Friends come and go with the seasons, but sometimes a few of them stick around over the years and now for me, decades! I never thought the day would come I was have an s at the end of decade when talking about friendships.
My ride or die I met in Junior high. We were both a little awkward and odd. She was my partner in crime and the one who would have my back no matter what. To this day I know she still has my back. I say someone made me mad she will be the first to be like okay where you want me to hide the body. It's just the way we roll. She is my BFF.
We have never strayed far from each other in life. She stood by me as I had children and tried to put claim on a few of them. She was just blessed with her first baby girl after two boys and I cried for her. She has always been and will remain my sister from another mister. Speaking of sisters, her parents had accepted me as one of their own. I loved them with all my heart and mourned for weeks when they passed on. At me grandparents funeral she was one of the few people who I remember coming in and just hugging me. We know each other, she's my best friend after all.
She knows things about me that I will kill her if she ever tells my kids. She knows things even my husband never will. I think she knows things about me I don't even know, The funny thing is our paths led us in two different directions. I became Suzie homemaker, while she kept her free spirit. I am a born again Christian she's Wiccan. We have more differences than similarities, but I love her! She is my dearest friend!
When I think of famous movie BFF's I think of Thelma and Louise. I actually wonder if that's where the term Ride or die comes from. I mean we all know what happened there! I have been very blessed to have had my girl by my side for these DECADES! I look forward to racing the nursing home halls in our wheel chairs together. I love ya Belynda!
Now for the contest. I want to know about your BFF, your ride or die, your best friend! The winner will receive Thelma and Louise bracelets pictured below:

I was excited to get the chance to try these. I use natural products whenever I can for whatever I can. It's so much safer for my children and pets. There are quite a few of these sticks in this set so I can use them on more than one occasion. I use essential oils daily so I am thrilled that's what is used in the making of these. These oils include citronella and thyme, both which are know to repel and kill bugs.
The sticks come ready to use. I just stick them in the ground and light them. It's that simple. They let off a stream of scented smoke that forms an almost barrier around an area. They burn for a long time, providing long lasting protection. These will be great for using along the woods line at our fourth of July party.
I really love the concept of this product and I know these will become a must have for all our outdoor parties. They are simple to use and work. Those are the most important things! These would be great for picnics, camping, the beach. Anywhere there are bugs these should be!
Overall a great product.
I recommend this to anyone who has outdoor parties.

It's no secret that I am a candle junkie. I am that person who will spend an hour on the candle aisle at Walmart smelling each one. I am not ashamed! I was excited to get a chance to try out this beautiful Valentine's candle. It was listed as smelling like cinnamon, which is one of my favorites.
The candle came wrapped securely so there wasn't so much as a smudge on it when it came. That's great because the label is so adorable. I love the cute little cherub taking aim. The candle was actually much bigger than the picture on amazon made it look. So that was a huge plus.
This candle has been burning daily for three days in my house and it's only about half gone. It's listed as lasting 72 hours, but I feel it may last a bit longer than that even. The candles aroma fills my dining room even before it's lit. As soon as I took of the lid my senses were assaulted with the beautiful scent from this. It does smell exactly like cinnamon candy.
Everything about this candle screams fun and Valentine's. It would be a perfect gift for a friend or a lover. I know I love getting candles from my husband!
Here are a couple other great facts:
This is made in America. That's a huge plus for me.
This is soy so it burns clean with no chemicals. I love that since I have kids and pets in the house.
Overall an excellent product that is well designed and lasts a long time.
I recommend this as a gift for Valentine's day.
