A little bit of this...a little bit of that.

So, I haven't been here for a while... so I have random things to share that have been poorly documented.

  First of all, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving night I had to work at Fossil at 8:30pm because we opened at 9pm, awesome.  I hope you hear the resentment in my voice, haha. I had to leave Pennsylvania a little after 6 to make sure I arrived to the Jersey Shore Outlets on time. Oh well- over and done with. I managed not to get maced, jumped or killed, so I guess working Black Friday was a success.

Last Saturday, my best friend had her baby shower.  I was in charge of the games, prizes and some desserts, so here are some of the things I did:

Wine Bottle in Towel with Bow:

Prize number one: Wine wrapped in a towel and tied with a pretty bow.  The new mommy and I always used to drink a little too much wine, so I decided to torture her with it because, well...I'm a bitch ;) 

Gift card Snow Globe: 
 Products needed
 Put glitter and decorations inside of the mason jar.  Hot glue the gift card to the lid (that faces inside)

Price number two: snow globe gift card holder. I made two. One for the baby shower and one for the fossil gift exchange :)

Pink and Zebra Cookies:

I made these cookies and they came out salmon colored first- ew, so then I made a quick batch of sugar cookies with red dye. **My friend's theme was pink and zebra striped**

Fruity Pebble Treats:

Fruity pebble treats :)

I also used a mason jar to put an apron in and attached a recipe to the jar for one of the prizes at the baby shower :) Thank you pinterest :)

I also got a third degree burn (I'm sure I'm exaggerating) from the melted chocolate I put into diapers for one of the games.  Sick, I know. But- watching people guess what kind of chocolate was melted in the diapers was pretty priceless ;)
