I'm baaaaack!!! What an absolutely fabulous weekend! I wish it wouldn't have ended so quickly!! Shawn and I left on Friday morning to go to South Padre...just the 2 of us! We went with some friends of ours...they have a condo down there and it was such a beautiful condo!! Good friends, good food, gorgeous views, beautiful weather...it was a great weekend! Shawn tried his hand at windsurfing which he loved! I lounged by the pool, took a walk on the beach, read, got a toe ring, and caught up on my sleep! I was wonderful...but now it is Tuesday and that means back to real life and getting lots of things done by the end of the week before the kids get out of school!
I made these flower pots for Kyler's teachers for an end of the year thank you. I saw this cute idea from Jackie on her blog...check out her flower pot here. I made my flowers using my die-cut blooms and attached them to lollipop sticks. (my sister Alli who came to town to watch the kids for us also helped me with these flowers!!) I found the buckets at the Target dollar spot...I filled them with Hershey kisses. The sticks stood up well by themselves in there. The bucket had hearts on it...so I threaded the ribbon through and tied a knot in the front.
Thanks to Jackie for the great idea!
thanks for being patient while I was away....chat at ya later!
what's in it?...
accessories...die-cut blooms, lollipop sticks, silver brads, "fat" 5/8 in. red ribbon, blue, red & orange striped ribbon, tape, Hershey Kisses

Oh man!! What a fabulous gift!! Why, oh why, can't you be one of my parents?!! lol! Their teachers will love this, you are so thoughtful! You brought back some good memories when you mentioned Padre...when we lived in McAllen we went there a lot, it is SO relaxing and peaceful!
