Happy Boo...zeday - The Perfect Way to Celebrate turning 21..derful

Here's an easy way to celebrate  someone turning 21 with a booze bouquet. And what a perfect time of year to add a little extra BOOs to the pot.

Here's all you need:


1 Flower Pot
Flower foam
colored paper
10 candy sticks - or bamboo skewers
5 mini bottles of alcohol
3-4 ghostly peeps
Take your empty flower pot and fill it with floral foam and tie a ribbon around the rim:

Then cover the foam with tissue paper, craft paper or even shredded paper:

I used numbered craft paper - because it seemed appropriate for a birthday celebration.

Next secure the alcohol minis to the candy sticks with tape.

After all the minis are secured to the candy sticks, pre-cut the holes in the paper for the sticks to poke through and start decorating the bouquet .

I added a few ghostly peeps to the mix to make it absolutely boo...tiful ;D

But you could use cookies or marshmallows or any kind of peeps.

Then I covered the little peeps in baggies so they wouldn't get dried out.

All-in-all I thought it turned out really boo...tiful :D

So CHEERS! and Happy

What a Weekend

We spent the weekend in beautiful San Diego. It was a weekend filled with bike riding, running and football...oh yeah,  and food, and lots of it.

We had a great time watching the SeaHawks play against the Chargers. Unfortunately the Hawks were defeated but it was great watching the skydivers land on the field and to see the celebration of the 200 anniversary of our Star Spangled Banner.

It was mighty impressive.

How 'bout did you spend your weekend?

Homemade Candies

First you need candy molds

Then you melt the white chocolate and add the food coloring. Then you fill the molds with the melted chocolate. Place the molds in the fridge and let the chocolate harden. Then you unmold the chocolates and trim the excess.

It's super simple to make candy.
I put these ones on the top of cupcakes.

Next time I use different colors of chocolate but this was for a baby girl's shower.

The Aids Walk

There were some super cool costumes - especially on such a HOT day. I couldn't believe that people were willing to put these heavy layers on and wear them in the 90+ degree heat of the day.

There were plenty of volunteers.

And it was a fun two mile walk around the city streets.

The Color Run was Ran

What a fun way to spend a day at the Color Run with friends and helping to raise money for the Dream Factory of Oregon at the same time.

Next year we're going to know how to dress for this event. :D
