This week is a time for gratitude, a time of quiet reflection of the things you are thankful for. Since everyone knows I’m the farthest thing from quiet, I will share my gratefulness here:
Things I am Thankful For
You get the point.
On a more serious note, I am very grateful this year for many things. My husband, and the house we just bought. Our health, our families health. My parents, their new-found home of the Bahamas (seriously, who doesn’t want to visit their parents when they live on an island?). All of our friends who love us even though we don’t babysit for their children often. Or hardly. Okay at all.
I am also grateful to have a job, especially given that many people do not. I am grateful that I can pay my bills and still have money left over to buy myself nice things. When they’re on sale. Or clearance. Or when they come in bottles of wine.
I like to spread the holiday cheer around the office (especially when everyone is wishing they would have taken the entire week off instead of just Thanksgiving). If you follow my blog you know that I have a lot of people to make favors for, so keeping them inexpensive is key. Like I just said, if it’s not on sale, it’s staying at the store. If I’m not buying myself those new things, I’m not buying them for my coworkers. Sorry guys. You’ll have to buy your own wine.
So these little favors will have to do. Personally, I think they’re adorable. But that’s just me. Probably because I made them…but hey, that counts right?
Buy some Reese’s Pieces, get little baggies (I used mini ziploc’s from Michaels, and cut off the tops), some twine, and print this adorable little tag. Put them all together, hand out, and put a smile on someone’s face! Or maybe just my face. One face counts, trust me.
