Favorite Thing #1: WoodWick Fireside

Hey Friends!!

WoodWick Fireside

It’s that time….my annual “Carmen’s Favorite Things” is coming to a radio near you! ha!

I only have a minute here before I head to Abbey’s game (let’s hope I actually make it IN this time!) But….I wanted to post my 1st favorite thing for this year!!

I’ve talked about ‘em a bunch. Dave’s actually the one that introduced me. It’s the Fireside WoodWick candle. It really smells & sounds like a real fire. I’ve got one burning in my office right now!

We’re gonna be giving away quite a few in the morning, but I wanted YOU (those that visit my blog) to have a chance to win a few too!

Here’s how:

Enter your name and email address in the comment section of this post. Name & email address. That’s it. Tomorrow morning on the show, I’ll have Hitch randomly pick 3 winners. We’ll announce your name, and email you tomorrow if you win! You can register between NOW and 6 a.m. tomorrow, December 4.

Merry Christmas!

    These are one of my favorites too! I especially love them when my husband is deployed as one of our favorite things to do is sit outside by a fire and chat.

    So glad this is part of your list! I keep forgetting to look for it when I’m out. I think it sounds wonderful! Would love to win one :) Patti phzlt@msn.com Thanks, Carmen!

    ” It’s the Fireside WoodWick candle. It really smells & sounds like a real fire. I’ve got one burning in my office right now!” Verrrry romantic for setting Christmas ambiance in my new digs in Oldsmar, thank you JESUS! It SOUNDS like a real fire? I can’t wait! If I win I am so grateful, if not, I may have to go ISO of one for the Cypress Palace!
    Carmen, you ROCK, girl. And you don’t even know it. Last year, when my Jim was going through the worst and hardest part of his brain cancer, and dying, I thought I was losing my mind. I prayed to God that He would not let go of me, me with my worry my crazy crazy worry for my Jim! YOU! I would be driving to work for all of maybe 12 minutes, listening to you with those two DUDES, and you with your snorting and laughing would bring me to this: Laughter when I had NONE! YOU, Carmen! And I know, like me and the rest of the world, you are frail too, but God gave you that wonderful snorting laughter and when I thought I was going to cave and fall apart and had nothing but tears, stress, pain and the horror of knowing I would soon be watching and sending my Jim to Jesus, YOU made me laugh, in my car, for just a few seconds and God Almighty girl, I am so grateful for you! Thank you, unconditionally and with the love of Jesus, THANK YOU! Jim died on October 16, 2012. And here’s the best part, God did not let go of me! With love, Susan

  68. Elisa Price December 4, 2012 at 4:13 am #

    Sounds like an awesome candle! Would probably give it as a gift to one of the women in my life :)

    I hear you guys talk about this candle, sounds amazing! :)

  77. Pamela M. Steiner December 4, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    I missed it! I was listening this morning and tried so hard to call in for the contest to win one of these candles. I have been looking for something like this ever since we moved into our “new” (old) house in the Ocala National Forest. We have a non-working fireplace (no chimney!), and these candles would be perfect for the glow and woodsy ambiance I want to enjoy during the holidays. Where can I buy these candles?
    Please see my blog “Closed Doors, Open Windows” http://pamelasopenwindow.blogspot.com for more of the story of our life here in the woods. I listen to you every morning on my way to work in Ocala, about 35 miles one way…so you are a marvelous way to start my day right. I work at the First Presbyterian Church of Ocala as the business admin….and the JoyFM is pretty special to all of us here!
    Merry Christmas!!

  78. Diane Mahoney December 5, 2012 at 8:43 pm #

    well I guess better late than never, I’ve heard so much about these candles. I would really love to be picked to win one. I can’t afford to go out and buy one, for I spent so much on Christmas this year what with 6 Grandchild I does get expensive. This would be a Christmas Present too me. God Bless and Merry Christmas!

  79. shawn leary December 6, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    My Wonderful Bride and I would love to have one of these candles in our home for Christmas. We give thanks to the ministry of the Morning Cruise every day. This program helped form our relationship and has made us stronger Christiens.
