Birthday gift and an update!

Good morning! Hope that you are having a nice weekend! It is still coooooolllldddd here! I like the cold, but only when I can come out of it into the warmth! : ) Our little heaters are having a tough time keeping up with the cold so we have all been sweater snuggled for the past few days! : ) I really shouldn't complain though! My mom lives in Alaska where it is many degrees below freezing right now!

I wanted to share a little gift that I made for my bil for his birthday. He prefers not to make a big deal of his birthday so it needed to be a low key kind of gift. I threw together a 2,4,6,8 box and added some birthday 'splash' to the front! I filled it with Ande's mints and added a chocolate chip ribbon! Stampin Up! really has the best ribbon around! I just love this color too! I didn't even include a card (now that is really low key!) LOL

Also, wanted to share an update of my resolutions! I have been ubber faithful about exercising (I even walked 2 miles in the 22 degree temp on Thursday!) and have been very faithful to drinking tons of water and watching what I eat! I just had a two week weigh in and I have lost 2 pounds! WooHoo! I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but I am a super slooooooow loser and so that was a happy number for me!

As for my 365 day scrapbook, I have fallen a wee bit behind! I am not throwing in the towel as of yet though! I think that if I schedule my time a little better that I can still make it happen! I will keep you posted on that! : )

Ok, I have another post that I will be back later for! Have a great day and stay warm!

Yummy!! Great treat box AnnMarie! Yes I am using prepunched ATC cards, but I also bought a punch so that I could punch out the thing-ys when I cover them up with paper. I really think it is going to look pretty cool!
