I can’t wait to show and tell some of the amazing products I’ll be featuring next week on HSN. Stay tuned this week for a great preview!
1. My house has been so quiet this past week. While I miss the mayhem and excitement that summer vacation brings, I’m also grateful for schedules and structure once again. I was pretty sad. While taking photos of the girls, it began to rain AND my nice digital camera quit working. Thank goodness for my backup camera on my iPhone!
Brecken is a senior and is quite the busy girl. She hung up her volleyball shoes this year to be on student council and to also become a certified nurse’s assistant. So–part of the week she’s wearing scrubs! She also will begin an internship at a local hospital in January.
Sage is in 8th grade and is still playing volleyball. She spilled milk down her shirt and pants right before walking out the door. She changed her shirt but as you can see, the milk stain remained (we tried wiping it down with a rag). She’s truly is a gal who knows how to have fun in any situation:
2. I recently hosted a shower for my niece, Mallory, and my sister whipped up this banner using American Crafts DIY Shop Chalkboard Banner. It even comes with the bakers twine and is so easy to embellish.
3. I host a lot of showers and have a favorite food I love to serve: “Build Your Own Fruit Sugar Cookies.” This dessert is so colorful, unique, yummy and even a little nutritious!
Start with a platter of plain sugar cookies:
Put a bowl of cream cheese frosting next to the cookies:
Place platters of fruit (strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, kiwi, etc.) around the cookies and frosting.
Finally, let your guests go to town building the perfect, delicious cookie!
The cookies and frosting were gone before I could get pictures–but I got one of the lovely fruit! The other photos are compliments of Food Network (cookies) and Inspired Taste (frosting).
Have a great week!
