So, I thought it would be fun to make my own version of the cute
All you will need is:
Add your treats to the bag.
Fold a piece of fun Christmas paper at the top.
Staple the paper onto the bag.
Add a small piece of paper as the gift tag with ribbon.
Now, write something fun like "Hope your Christmas if filled with JOY!"
(I thought it was cute given my treats were Almond Joy.)
Mia had so much fun prancing around her school passing out these special little gifts! She was so proud of herself for putting a smile on the faces of the people she looks up to and respects so much!

Look at this cuteness!
After the beads were dry, I just strung them, in the order I wanted them, onto some 1/4" black grosgrain. To make this a bit easier, I just taped the ends into a skinny spiral so the beads would slide on.

What a TRIP!
I was so happy to get the chance to meet some of my new favorite girls.
Mel, Heather G, Julie, Heather M, as well as Erin who so kindly hosted us for a full blown SLUMBER PARTY extravaganza filled with eats, drinks, a baby shower, a birthday party and the chance to be a part of something AMAZING.
We put on our holla tees and got to work.
We organized all the gifts into bundles of 20.
Then Mel snapped pictures of everything.
We took a few time outs to celebrate baby Gianna,
who will be arriving in a few months!
(How cute is this diaper cake Erin made! SRSLY?!)
And then they took me to The Coffee Bean for the first time
One word: YUM.
Back at Erin, we posed in our holla tees,
and I may or may not have made Pottery Barn Dip.
Heather made some cupcakes to celebrate Julie's birthday!
And please don't fall off your chair when you take a look at this cuteness she made for Julie!Cutest. Bunting. Ever.
Janey joined Mommy to celebrate her birthday! How cute are they?!
Julie's birthday spread.

The weekend went by so fast.
We accomplished so much and had such a great time together.
But I sure did miss Steve and my girls.
When I got home I was welcomed with this.
Pasta con Broccoli and Brownies....
letters from Mia and Sophie,
and Gracie girl helping me with my luggage.
The girls said, "Mom do you remember our stockings?!"
"What about our Christmas Tree?!"
And then they showed me where their Elf on a Shelf was hanging out all day!
I missed little CLYDE also!
There is definitely no place like home, but I am so glad I decided to go and meet such amazingly talented and inspirational women that, if not for our blogs, I would have never met.
