Crafty Holiday Idea!

I save my Christmas cards from last year and use them to make this years tags, its fun to re-read through last year letters one last time and then put those old cards to good use!

Bachelorette party idea!

I'm going to a bachelorette party tonight and one of the requirements for attending is:bring some panties- brand new ones for the bride incase there was any confusion. So we are hanging a clothes line in the hotel room and the bride gets to guess who bought what...and then she gets to take home all the panties! I never heard of this but thought it was a great idea to get everyone at a bachelorette party to contribute something and for the bride to get to stock up on some undies!

Holiday challenge!

I just found this picture on google images, but I really like it. So my challenge since September is to NOT BUY THINGS FOR MYSELF. I haven't been perfect, I mean sometimes you just need to buy something for yourself but this challenge has the duel purpose of de-cluttering by elimination-specifically-make-up, bath and body products and saving money for presents. I usually have the habit of getting bored with a product after I've used up half of it then buy a new one so I then have two open products and so on. I've been working my way through my bathroom discovering products (Redkin Hair Butter Treatment, long lost love) and emptying bottles gives me a feeling of accomplishment (Is that sad?) I'm not a naturally organized person so I to go through all my stuff and put it in a SAVE, USE or DONATE pile. Does anyone else have a "special" way to organize?

Frozen food review

Okay don't get too excited but I'm actually posting about food on my food blog! I tried this new Michelina's dinner, and was trying to get a picture off the internet but this item must be so new they haven't put it on their website yet! So I had to take a picture of the box after I clipped a coupon off the cover (food AND a coupon sign me up)
I loved this! This dinner was 290 calories and had a zesty cream sauce, Southwestern Fresca was loaded with broccoli, onions, kidney beans, corn, bell peppers and carrots- 10g of fiber and 10g of protein for a meat free meal! Also whole grain pasta (why don't more frozen meals use whole grain?)

Weight Update! I've lost 19 pounds since I've started (September 14th) I've been at the same weight the last 3 weeks but Thanksgiving I ate with abandon so I'm not too upset about this but know I need to get back on track.

Getting Crafty

Hi, its been a long hiatus but I wanted to share some of my crafty ideas! These are two fun ideas I thought of after buying letters!
This is my card for a wedding (duh), I love this idea because I always seem to mess up when writing on envelopes and this is way cuter than my handwriting and is un-mess-up-able!
This is a fun idea I thought of for my co-workers instead of getting them cards! I got the snowflake ornaments 4 for $1 at Target and used the same letters I used for the card above to personalize the snowflakes. I used clear Tacky Glue to adhere the letters, if you notice there are 5 K's in there, I had to get pretty crafty and cut up some X's and V's to make all 5 K's and stuck little flower stickers on the "crafty" letters to cover up the seams(I always go for the unpopular letters first)
my supplies! I bought two letter bags (one pink, one white) and two silver letter stickers sheets, everything was on clearance for 50 cents each so I made each ornament for about 30 cents a piece!
