Life is going good, I am a busy bee these days! I had made my boyfriend a little surprise present for all the support he gives me; day in and day out!
This is the Jar of Dates!
100 Popsicle Sticks
Sharpie’s (If I could go back, I would use The Ultra fine tip instead of Regular Fine tip, the thicker ones seem to bleed a bit on the wood)
Mason Jar – Purchased mine at Walmart for 97 cents!
Black- Stay at Home dates. Very little money.
Red- Types of places to eat/ Types of food!
Green- Ideas for a day out, and things to do without spending too much.
Blue- Go for one of these when you’re ready for a nice break- except some planning & a lighter wallet 😉
I Separated the sticks into 4 Categories and went from there!
I did a little research online to find a variety of date ideas 🙂
Here are some I came up with;
Anddd DRUMROLL PLEASE….
The final Result! For whenever you are bored, indecisive or you just can’t compromise! Sounds familiar 😉
For the present for baby Liam’s & mommy-to-be’s baby shower I wanted to do something special. Usually my family would all chip in for something together, but I knew I didn’t want to do that. I checked her registry at Babies R Us & Buybuy Baby. BINGO! I figured out what I was going to do. When the mommy first put up her registry, we were talking about the difference in baby bathtubs, and how she loved the one she picked.
The “Whale of a Tub” Bathtub
Mommy’s Little Monster Outfit
Bath Safety Duck that tells you if the water is too hot & a cute octopus sleeper 🙂
Also included a whale wash mitt, 3 hooded towels, 8 washclothes, bath toys & a Mommy & Me kit from Aveeno with lotions & soaps for mom & baby!
Finished product! I left out the book by accident, but it goes in the top left corner! 🙂
Just got a text from Mommy-to-be saying she read the inside of the book that says, “Liam, I love you to the moon & back. Love Auntie Shan” & she said she loved that saying so much she bought it on Etsy to hang over the crib! 🙂 SO happy 🙂
