Vegas Baby

I've been quiet this week because I'm in Vegas for work. My sister is out here with me (my birthday gift to her) and we've had lots of fun! We did the whole Vegas strip walk last night and saw the fountains, the shops, the casinos and the sinking ship. The volcano in front of the Mirage is currently out of order.

We are at the Red Rock Resort (where the conference I'm attending is being held) and it's about 20 minutes from the main strip, but there's lots to do out here. When we checked in, our room hadn't been cleaned yet, and I called housekeeping three times and they never came! After waiting forever for them, I walked out in the hallway to see if they were coming and the hotel managers just happened to be walking by. I told them what happened and them immediatly moved us to another room (this one was clean), sent up two teddy bears with a letter of apology, wine with dinner and upgraded us to VIP status.

My sis actually won $102 on the nickle slots and I lost $15. We are headed home tomorrow and I miss my little guy so much and can't wait to see him. It's been fun, but time to go! Here are a couple of pics from the week...will post more later!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
