Just sharing a few things that are making me smile today...
Today was "Crazy Hair" day at Mac's preschool.
And "Bring your favorite teddy bear to school day" too!
Happiness is finding great things on sale at Target!! For example...I do not own a cake plate. They had these wire ones on sale marked down from $12 to $2.98, so I got two! I think they are cool looking and I love how they look stacked on top of each other too. I can see using them that way to display/serve cookies or cupcakes or any kind of appetizer. Heck, even just to sit fruit on top of to look pretty on my countertop!
Next great find was the package of clear stamps featuring the days of the week, months of the year and numbers. This is perfect for my take on the Project 365 that a few of my friends and fellow scrapbookers are doing right now. And notice the RED SALE TAG?!
My sister gave me a hard time about my last "great find"! But I'm proud of it, so I'll share anyway! Have you seen the new "designer" packaging that Clorox Disinfecting Wipes now come in? Look at that box on top of my cake stands. Isn't it pretty? I will totally leave that sitting out in the kids bathroom so they can wipe up their own messes lickety-split! Someone had a brilliant idea!
And my final photo is of something that has been making my sweet tooth happy without expanding my waistline! Want a sweet but low-cal treat? Take a french vanilla cake mix and mix it with 12 oz of Diet Sprite (Sprite Zero, whatever) and add an egg white. Mix it all up good and scoop evenly into 24 muffin tins. Each cupcake is 2 points and YUMMY. Mac, Sarah, and Taylor will all testify to this! You can also do this with devil's food cake mix and diet coke. There are actually many variations, but the basic rule of thumb is to combine light-colored cake mixes with light-colored diet drinks and dark-colored mixes with dark diet sodas. Try it! you can indulge in something sweet when you want it and you don't have to feel guilty!
Have a HAPPY day! :)
