One More Week Left..

Just one more week left until my daughters Sweet Sixteen Party. I must admit as much as I'm happy to be giving this girl a party I have so much school work and exams this coming week that I am exhausted just thinking about all that has to be done.  I pray that God gives me some extra space in my brain this week to absorb everything I need to know and keep on top of all the party plans.

I can't wait to show everyone my dress I picked up today. I got it at JCPenney for like $30. I love it!! I never wear dresses but today I was determined to find one that I did not look horrible in. I had to try on many but I got one I truly adore.

Well, much more to come! I will be starting the baking of the cakes tomorrow. I pray that the cake comes out great. It has been a while since I decorated a cake.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there.

Sometimes strangers surprise you

So I entered a giveaway on Tatertots and Jello a while back for a gift certificate for Smidge and Pinch. I wrote in my entry that I needed to win this giveaway badly due to my daughter's upcoming Sweet Sixteen and that we are  on such a tight budget. Well, guess what? I didn't win.  Instead of winning the giveaway, I was contacted by Theresa, owner of Smidge and Pinch.  She offered to send me some great items for my daughters party. (Jaw dropping moment for me, I couldn't believe a complete stranger wanted to help me.) Yup, she wanted to help make my daughters party just a little bit more special. 

Well, I must tell you it was a such a surprise and there was no way that I was going to turn down her offer. I went to her website and all I have to say is Wow.  Smidge and Pinch has really great party items and honestly the prices are really great too.  So what did I choose?

Zebra Stripe Gable Treat Box

I will be using these great little boxes to put cookies in for party favors.  I will be putting a small circle that says, "Thank You". 
12 Sweet Sixteen 16 Pink Cupcake Toppers Rings - great for party

How cute are these rings?  I will be giving them out to the girls at the party.  It will be fun seeing them all dancing around with the rings on their pinky fingers.  I also will be giving them hot pink feather boas. So fancy, Lol. 

I am so thankful for Theresa at Smidge and Pinch. How awesome is she to help me with my daughters party? Insert Applause here please. 

With that I would like you to go over to Smidge and Pinch and check it out. Also, Theresa adds new items all the time so to keep up on the happenings over at Smidge and Pinch like her Facebook page @ Smidge and Pinch.
