This was back in May 2013 during a trip to Vegas.  I had blonde chunks throughout my black hair.  I love having my hair curled with the blonde in there :)  I will definitely be going back to this look come spring!

Shadowbox Baby Keepsake

I picked up this super cute shadow box at Gordman's.  I used Eli's blanket given to use by the hospital as the back and then just put a few of my favorite things in there like his hat from the hospital, and our hospital ID's, ultrasound and socks and onesie.

This is so much better than just keeping them in a box where you never see them, now they are on display where I can see them all the time!  Everyone always comments how cute of an idea it is!

Chocolatey Pretzel Treats

These are so easy to make!  My kids had fun helping with them and we all loved them, they make a great snack!  We did these over Christmas so we used the Christmas color M&Ms but you can use the regular kind or whatever holiday colors are out at the moment!

All you need is:
1 Bag of small pretzels
1 bag M&Ms (I used peanut ones, I accidentally grabbed those instead of plain but they worked great)
1 bag hershey kisses, or hugs (I also tried the cookies & cream kind and they didn't work out as well as the plain chocolate)

Heat the oven to 170 degrees.  Place pretzels in a single layer and place kisses on top of each pretzel.  Bake 4-6 minutes until the chocolate feels soft.  Do not over do it though, you don't want a chocolate puddle!  Press M&Ms into the center of each treat.  Allow to cool and then place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set.
