I Guess You Could Say My Blog Is Closed!!

If anyone just happens to stop over my way, just wanted to let you know I decided at this time I'm not a very good blogger!!! I so love reading other blogs (in fact I need to cut back, I'm addicted) but just don't have the writing knack. I may be back someday. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I haven't blogged in forever and it's not as if I have many readers out there, but, I just couldn't help but blog about the pretty (and easy) little things we are doing around here for Valentine's Day.

Today we are having a birthday/valentine's party for the day care children. I made these cuprcakes which I thought were just pretty! I used my pampered chef decorating tips and then sprinkled them with sugar. Super easy but simple and cute.
The next thing I wanted to share are these little treat bags. Again, nothing spectacular, just cute!! I found these bags at walmart. They are hallmark bags and came with the twisty and the heart. I had the little stickers which I added.

The last thing which is my favorite are these little Valentine's cards that the girl saw advertised last time we were in WalMart. We used this photo:

to make these valentine's cards:
It was as simple as taking your memory stick into WalMart and having these cute little things printed off. They come in a sheet of 3 and then you have to cut them. They also include the little valentine envelopes. Price isn't bad at $.40 a sheet. We added to the bottom of the card "Have a dog gone good valentine! From The Girl".

As the card reads "Have a dog gone good valentine!" and have a great day!

Edited to add: I know I speak of WalMart a few times in this post but when you live where I do you just don't have much to choose from. WalMart, my mall of choice!!

YOOHOO, Anyone Out There????

Wow, it's been forever. I'm not here to post much except to let you all know (whole maybe 2 readers) to check out the giveaway that Judi over at Plumtickled Fabrics is doing. Check it out, you won't be disappointed. I can't wait for Christmas to see if I get that new sewing machine and if I do my poor debit card is going to be sending lots of $$$ Judi's way. I bet her bank account will be just plumtickled (ok I know that was lame, but so cute I couldn't resist)! Click here to enter her drawing.

I'm In Denial!!!

I'm singing, "I'm In Denial" to the tune of "We're in the money"!!! Anyway, enough of my lame jokes!! Just wanted to do a short post to let you all know that I really am in denial right now and just can't deal with the whole weight loss thing right now. I promise to check back in on Monday with a new plan. The Halloween party and girls shopping weekend (did I tell you all that means without the husband, the boy and the girl) will be past me!

I have alot going on and will be sure to post about it all on Monday.

Also, wanted to tell you I came across a new blog that I've really enjoyed reading. Check out her blog: Big, Blonde, Beautiful Jess! I've enjoyed reading her because she has such a positive outlook on weight loss and even though she wants to lose weight she is at peace with herself. She seems like a breath of fresh air!! Check out number 4 in this post!!!

Yippee, Future MILF loot arrived!

Thanks Judi over at Plumtickled for the awesome Future MILF Swap gift! It was so much fun when the husband got home from the post office with my package. When I first opened the package I saw this darling pouch (I think the fabric is so cute) full of goodies.

When I opened the pouch I found some little yummies, something sexy and something just for fun. Thanks Judi for sharing with me some of your favorite helpers for WW. The drink is 0 points and counts as water, the Fiber One bars are 2 points and the Nips you get 2 pieces for 1 point! And oohlaalaa, the Brown Sugar thigh highs. The husband, he is adding these as his favorite! The just for fun fat quarter (I may sound dumb saying this but I have to tell you I've never heard of the term fat quarter!!) of fabric is so pretty I can't wait to use it. I love the colors. Anything paired up with brown, I love.

Thanks again and I hope everyone (not that I have many readers!) takes a few minutes to check out Judi's site. She not only has some pretty stuff over her way but she rocks when it comes to her weight loss and she's funny! Keep up the great work! Now if only her success can reach me here in the North!

There will be no weighing in on the weight!!!!!

The title says it all!! So sorry but I'm in loser mode! The Halloween camping weekend was not good to this Northern Michigan Mom. The sad thing is, I'm going to have an excuse for the next couple weekends. Next weekend is our card club Halloween party (night out without the boy and the girl) and the following weekend is my annual shopping weekend in the big downstate city with the girlfriends (weekend away without the husband, the boy and the girl)! Don't laugh because I've only reported a big whopping 1 pound loss. You all just wait, I'm going to surprise you someday!

I just like that name. Since I have started this blogging bit several blogs I read talk about their etsy shops or etsy finds. I have to tell you, I checked it out last night and now have a new internet addiction (the husband is scared for the checkbook!). I soooo love this necklace, and check out the super cool fabric here. Check it out when you have some time but tell the hubby to hide the checkbook, or credit card or debit card!!!!
