A Little Bit Of This and A Little Bit Of That

Wow, we are really counting down the days until the wedding shower. Last week we decided on the food and today we picked the desserts. We can bring our own desserts in, so I am ordering from Deerfield Bakery. They're awesome and we are getting their little pastries. Click here and take a look at this page of pastries! I know, it's unreal isn't it?

I've decided on the Cream Puffs, Eclairs, Dipped Strawberries, the Cheesecake Tart, Key Lime Tart, Tira Misu Cup, the Napoleon and the Petit Fours! I think we are going to do 8 of each for our group of 20 which will give us more than 60 pieces. There is no way we will eat all of that, but Irv and Michael (my human garbage disposals) informed me that they will gladly take care of the leftovers for us! HA!

Tresa did ask me today if I was still going to make the box for the reception that people drop their cards into.....I said, of course I am! I do have a cute idea. When I start working on it I'll tell you what I am going to do. She doesn't want the traditional one that looks like a wrapped gift, or a satin one or anything like that. I think she'll like what I come up with.

Okay, that's enough shower talk.

I am planning to start doing giveaways on my blog. I think a monthly one. I know, I know.....some people like them and some don't. I've seen some that make you jump through hoops to enter....trust me....I won't do that. Just a comment on my blog and maybe a visit to my shops. I would like to start this week if I can figure it all out. We'll see.

We were supposed to have a blizzard last night and this morning....it fizzled out. I was bummed because I was thinking maybe I would get a day off of work. No such luck. Then they had one up for tomorrow and they changed that one too. What's with the weather guys anyway? I think they like to say that so everyone is sure to tune in to their next report....it's a conspiracy for sure!

Remember how I said I don't watch much t.v....well tonight is American Idol and I will definitely be watching!! It's always good for a laugh in the beginning!

One last thing...there was a post in the forums yesterday morning by Ozark. Every morning Ozark gives a quote of the day and some words of wisdom to go with it. Here is the forum thread. This one was about how it takes 26 muscles to smile and 62 to frown, so she suggested we all smile. Even though I am shy, I am always quick to smile at people. It's about as outgoing as I get. My thought is that you just never know what an awful day that person you see might be having. They might have lost their job, or a loved one, they could be sick or just very sad. Your smile might be just what they need. So, touch someone's heart and give them a smile. It won't cost you a thing!

I love mini pasteries and putting on showers and parties. I owned a Tea Room with my mom and sister for a few years and we did showers and tea parties and made the most beautiful mini desserts and fantasy cakes. They are so fun. I went to the dessert site you're getting yours from and they look fabulous!
Giving you a giant smile- :)
