Spilling the Beans...

Any guesses as to what I may be spilling the beans about?  I have a few surprises to share this year with you all, but I can't spill all the beans at once. So, I will share one of my surprises....

I am very excited to announce that I...

Oh wait, did I tell you about that one time in band camp... JUST Kidding!!!!! I was never in band.

Okay, okay... back to what I really wanted to tell you...

I am Pregnant with child #3!  YEAH!!!! 
Baby is due December 11, 2011, so that makes me almost 11 weeks.  Had our first doctor appointment this week and heard the heart beat and so far everything looks great! 

Paige and Matthew are so excited that they are going to have a little baby sibling.  When we asked if they could pick, what kind of baby would they want mommy to have... Paige answered with a Baby Sister and Matthew said... a Baby Robot. 

Hmmm... what is your guess?

Garden Party Favors

Every little girl loves flowers and butterflies!  Here is a quick and easy tutorial for party favors that will work with any girly themed party.... especially Garden Parties!

1. You will need a butterfly flower stem.. these can be found at Hobby Lobby, JoAnns or other floral department stores.

2. Little individually wrapped flower pots.  I got mine from the dollar section at Target.

3. Precut round Tulle circles... these can be found in the wedding section at Hobby Lobby, JoAnns, and other floral department stores.  You will also need some twistie ties.

4. Place one of your flower pots in the center of one tulle circle.

5. Pull the sides up and pull tightly together at the top.  Using your twist tie, tightly wind around the top of the tulle to hold in place.

6.  Using a pencil twist the stem of your floral stem of the butterfly tightly around the pencil to create a cute little curly stem.

7.  Push the stem off the pencil and twist it around the tulle top of the flower pot.

You now have a cute little favor that any little girl will love.  Make several of these to pass out as favors at your next party!

The difference between men and women...

I received this email this morning and it was too good that I just have to share it. Come on... you know it is SOOO True!

� If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch,
they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
� If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately
refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman .

� When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each
throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.
None of them will have anything smaller and none will
actually admit they want change back.
� When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

� A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
� A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't
need but it's on sale.

� A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste,
shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
� The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.
A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

� A woman has the last word in any argument.
� Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

� A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
� A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

� A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
� A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

� A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
� A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

� A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash,
answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
� A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

� Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
� Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

� Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children.
She knows about dentist appointments and romances,
best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
� A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

Hope this gave you at least a little chuckle this morning... now have a Wonderful Day!
