Hello! It's been awhile since I posted neice is here visiting and we are motivating each other to get healthy. That means eating better {I'm doing Weight Watchers, she's doing Atkins} and working out A LOT. Zumba and Billy Banks have been kicking my butt! I love it though, I haven't felt this good in a REALLY long time. On top of that, I sold TWO of my party kits out of my etsy shop {} can I get a "WHOOP WHOOP!!!?" I was so excited! However, my little man has been sick, sick, sick. Fever for four days now and a bronchitis diagnoisis, so antibiotics and breathing treatments for him. Also, my daughter, Heather, and grandbaby, Kayden, fly in tomorrow and they get to stay for two weeks! I cannot wait to get my hands on my little Kaydie Bug!!

In between customizing the etsy orders, creating and staging a Superbowl party, making a secret party kit {more on that to come}, I was able to finish up my Woodland Gnomes Party Kit. It is now in my etsy shop, but here is a peek:

Gotta have the Gnome beards!

Food tent labels

Cute banners!

Gift bags

Cupcake wrappers and toppers

Adorable {if I do say so myself ;)}

My handsome boy who wanted to be the "chef."
 If you are in need of a Woodland Gnome Party Kit for this Spring {baby shower, birthday party, gardening party for the little ones, or any occasion} check it out!

My nephew is a brand-new Marine and my family couldn't be more proud of him! This is not only his first time being away from family, but his first time out of the US too. Yup...straight out of boot camp and deployed to Afghanistan :/ My neice, Randa Bliss, and I decided to make him and his fellow Marines some funny valentine's cards and send them some yummy treats!
I {mustache} you a question.....

{If you need a quick decor just for that little area, grab a wooden block and draw a heart on it with chalk!}

...will you be my Valentine?

Treat bags....don't worry, there is a lot more candy than THAT!

My nephew {Marine Adam, hee hee hee} is very homesick, so I hope this Valentine's box will cheer him up and give him a laugh!
