So, as I usually do before a trip to anywhere other than my parent's house, I stocked up on cereal bars, milk boxes, pop tarts and various snacks. Now, here's where I diverge from the "usual" - throwing the aforementioned goods in a grocery bag and calling it a day. Instead, earlier this week I found the littles slumbering, Honey glued to the tele and me with idle hands. And you know what they say about idle hands... Well, let's just be glad I didn't go there. Instead, I went to work making little breakfast bags and decorating our snacks. (OMG. As I write this I am realizing just how ridiculous this sounds. I should have just ironed. Or wrangled the monstrous dust bunnies under my bed. Or slept.)
Red bags left over from Elmo Party, napkins on clearance at Party City. Stickers made by yours truly (with loads of extras to use in some way, shape or form at the baby's pah-tay.) Apple will obviously be replaced with a fresh version. (Or no version at all. I thought it really rounded out my picture.)
Teddy Graham cups from Dollar Tree with label removed and sticker on top.
Belly Washers apple juice from WalMart - $2 each on the juice aisle. Labels removed.
Snack mix containers upcycled from Dollar Tree Fritos cans. Water bottles from etsy.
Now, I'm going to be brutally honest for a moment... I do this stuff because I love doing it. And I love making little moments for my littles as special as I possibly can. Period. I know this is all absurdly unnecessary. It's just what I do at night when football is on and my DVR has been emptied of Pretty Little Liar episodes.
