I first came up with the title for my post a couple of days ago. It was meant to be kind of witty since I felt like I had "thank you" boxes coming out of my ears. However, reflections of this Memorial Day change the tone. So, I would like to take a moment to remember those who so bravely fought for the freedoms of our country and paid the ultimate price. One of my childhood teacher's only son is among those that I remember today. He was part of the Lima Company from Ohio that suffered great loss a few years ago. Sadly, he was among the casualties. With that said, I'd like to continue on with today's post.
Here are a few lined up on my table. It was very late at night so the lighting isn't the best. (Notice my open window in the background. Our heat pump froze up and was not working. Ugh!)
The boxes will be filled with cellophane bags of white chocolate dipped mini pretzels covered with purple and green sprinkles.
If you haven't guessed, Erin's wedding colors are Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery. Her dress is ivory and the groom and his groomsmen will be wearing linen colored tuxedos. Erin's chose to go with a vintage wedding theme. It should be gorgeous.
Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Thanks for peeking in on me. It's back to work for me tomorrow. I will be attending my son's Eighth Grade Promotion ceremony on Thursday. I can't believe he'll be in high school soon.

Monday, May 24, 2010
I'm taking a break from blogging while I work on wedding favors for my coworker's daughter. The wedding is quickly approaching and I must finish the 200+ wedding favors. My goal is to finish them by Friday. Oh, and I WILL!!!!! I have favors covering half of my dining room table right now. My sister is going to swing by tomorrow and help me with them. (Gotta love family, right?) I'm hoping to have them done really soon so I can get back to stamping and posting. I hope to post some new creations in the very near future. So don't throw the towel in on me yet. I'll be back!
