Picking up Candle Supplies!

Well I had made plans to go to Quakertown PA on Monday March 2nd and pick up my HUGE candle order, however the weather had a different plan for me! We ended up getting 6 inches of snow here in Virginia and Quakertown ended up with about a foot of snow! Needless to say I was very unhappy with the weather!

Wayne and I do not have a 4x4 vehicle (which will have to change soon) so getting up and down the mountain in our cars wasn't going to happen! So with that being said we borrowed Wayne's brothers Dodge pickup (with 4x4) and we were able to get around. Thank God for family right!

So I pushed my 4 hour drive up to Quakertown back to Wednesday with every hope in getting to drive my car. On Tuesday I was coming up the mountain in the truck in 2 wheel drive and sliding all over the place. I knew then that their would be no way that I was getting my car down the mountain in the morning for my trip! So when I got home Wayne seemed to think that the snow would be gone by the morning and that we'll just have to wait and see.

I really wasn't excited about making a 9 1/2 round trip in a huge truck that I'm really not that used to, but I knew that I wouldn't have any problems. I was just being a brat and I really wanted to take my car that got better gas mileage and is much smaller and easier to zip in and out of traffic.

So Wednesday morning came and their was NO way my little XB was going to get down our street much less down the mountain. So Wayne put all of my stuff in the big truck and away I went to Quakertown PA.

As I was driving up I81 I was looking at the mountains covered with snow and thinking how lucky I was to be able to see this beautiful scenic area! My drive to PA was very nice and I actually enjoyed driving my brother in laws truck! Something mashing the gas pedal and it actually going! Not something you get in a 4 cylinder car. :) I'm thinking now that I really want a big truck! Funny seeing all 5'4" of me driving something that I have to climb into!

Anyway I made it to Quakertown with no problems and loaded the truck up with all of my new goodies and came back to the wonderful state of VA and spent the evening checking out all of my new scents and jars that I purchased!
