I am fortunate enough to have my dream job of staying at home with my two beautiful daughters. I've been happily married for 6 years and counting! I am a lover of all things french, all things pink, and anything that sparkles. Serioulsy, my husband calls me a crow. I love baking, crafting and throwing big parties, especially if they have a theme. Right now, I'm in love Pinterest. My Hero is Heather from Sprinkle Bakes and my mom.

Half Way There! Sparkly Oreo Suckers

One week today today people!! Can you believe I've actually stuck to something this long? I can't. I'm what I like to call a 'Quitter'. It's amazing that I've kept blogging even. Thanks to everyone who encourages me daily by becoming a follower and leaving me comments. I heart your comments. Seriously, they make my day!

I'm thinking that maybe when I reach 20 followers I might try and do a giveaway of some sorts. Spread the news people, Free swag (that's souvenirs, wearables and gifts, for the lay person). I'll see what I can come up with, and you see who you can rope into following, deal? Deal!

Venice has a small pre-school class of 12. I'm hoping it's 12 or I'm in trouble! It seems like a small enough number to make homemade valentines. I perused a few website to check out some kid crafts and treats and found a few really cute ones, but a lot of them required things I'd have to go out and buy. I like using things I already have. I had made Oreo suckers from How Does She, last Easter for Venice's friends. They were easy and I had sucker sticks left over from last time so Chocolate Dipped Oreo Suckers made the cut!

All the instructions are at the link above, so I'm saving some typing ;)

My little beauties basking in the sun.

My peanut eating the sprinkles I've spilt on the counter (there was quite a few).

Blooming suckers!

I heart sprinkles.  And sparkles.

 Getting them all wrapped up and labeled.


7 more days until THE day! What does everyone have planned? We're going out for a 5 course dinner that starts at 8 pm . . . I'm going to need my stretchy pants and a pillow!
