Oh Baby!!

Last weekend we had a baby sprinkle for my friend Shersti. The shower was at The Cheesecake Factory. Yum!! We had a wonderful time and I can't wait to meet our new playgroup addition soon!!!

My friend Abby made the cutest Movie Theater treat boxes. The plan was to have dinner then head to a movie, but we spent longer at dinner than we planned. The goodies were still well enjoyed though!! I think Abby and I need to quit our day jobs and open a party planning business! :O)

So cute!!

I am a diaper cake pro now! :O) These are so fun to make! I like using my flower baby clip topper for the top of the cake. It works well as long as the mama is having a baby girl!! :O)

I have been wanting an excuse to make these for a while.......

Chocolate covered double stuffed oreos!

I made extra for JR's work, Madison's day care ladies at the YMCA. and some friends at the YMCA.

I made these little rings to attach to the pops for the Sprinkle. I didn't make the flower, I just had to glue the flower to the ring.

House Party- Canning

I was super excited to win this House Party!! I have been wanting to can for a few years now and this was a great party package to get me started!!

I had a small party. My friend Shersti was the only one that was able to make it. She is a canning pro, so I am glad she was able to come and help me learn!! Thanks again Shersti!! :O)

Here is the awesome party pack they sent! Thanks House Party!

We made Strawberry Salsa. It was yummy!! I actually made another batch the other day. I have already ate 2 jars! It is great on chicken and sandwiches!

Strawberry Salsa
(I doubled the recipe and got 3 jars with each batch)

1 cup Strawberries, chopped
1 can Diced Tomatoes, drained 1 small White Onion, chopped
1 Jalapeno, seeded and minced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 Tbs Lime Juice
1 Tbs Vegetable Oil
pinch Salt

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Then I canned it. If you just want to eat it right away...... Chill, covered for 2 hours before serving.

Family Pictures

Portrait Innovations an awesome $9.95 package deal that we always get for Madison's Birthday pictures. It is the perfect amount to pass out to family and even still have left overs. We picked a few more we liked and they included the CD. So I thought I'd share the ones we picked a few out takes that were still cute.

Check it out! JR's braces are off!! :O)

Green Mama

I just finished the book- Green Mama: The Guilt-Free Guide to Helping You and Your Kids Save the Planet. I stumbled across it while at my local Half Priced Books Store. It was a great read. It defiantly made my time on the elliptical go by a tad faster;)

Nikkie- I have it in my bag for you to enjoy next! :O) See you soon!!
