Favorite Website Find

This site is so cool.  People will list stuff that they’ll do for you for just $5.00.  You can have Marilyn create a “Happy Birthday To You” video for your husband.  You can have someone Photoshop something onto a picture for you.  You can have someone prank call your best friend for fun.  You can have someone from Taiwan take a picture of him or her in front of a famous site with your branding.(See above pic!)  All for just five bucks!

Things To Make You Happy

I loved this article about 22 things happy people do differently.  It’s a great reminder of how we can change our own perspectives.  I even read this to my sometimes “glass is half empty” son and saw him seriously pondering the concepts.  Win!


Favorite TV Show – The Voice
The Voice

If you like singing competition shows, you HAVE to watch this one!  I’m watching it with my husband and kids.  I am LOVING the cast – Adam Levine, Blake Sheldon, Usher and Shakira.  They are all so personable, so funny and so fun to watch.  They choose singers to be on their team, solely based on their voices.   (The judges can’t see the contestants as they are choosing them, they can only hear them!)  Then, if they all want the contestant on their team, they will fight for him/her.  There’s some serious talent showing up – its way better than American Idol!  Anyway, my kids and I love this show and each have our favorite judges and contestants.  Check it out!


Best Party Cake
From the Sweet Designs Blog

Bubblegum Party Cake

Um…. Yes.  This is actually a birthday cake.  Amazing, right!!??  Beautiful, right!!??  Although it makes me & my cake decorating skills feel horrifyingly inferior, I had to add this because it’s an amazing work of art and cuteness.  If you click on the link (Sweet Designs Blog), you will see an entire spread for decorating a bubble gum themed party.  Wow.


Favorite Entertaining Idea
Washi Tape Names on Wine Glasses
From the Jentertaining Blog

Wine Glass Labels

I thought this idea from the Jentertaining blog was so easy and creative!  Get a cute piece of washi tape (it peels off easily) and write your guest’s name with a Sharpie on the tape.  You can do this on any wine glass.  is a great site to buy different types of washi tape for great prices! Thanks for the idea Jentertaining!  Enjoy…


Favorite Wine Tip
The 15 Minute Wine Rule

Apparently, there is a 15 minute rule for serving both white and red wines.  Did you know about this? (I didn’t!)  You can read the article and find the tips HERE on the Real Simple Blog.


Cutest Spring Find
