This is my kind of party!
I made heart hats for my nieces. This idea was inspired by these adorable heart socks from Erica at Caught on a Whim. Check out her fantastic blog at Caught on a Whim. She’s got so many great things there.
I set out to make the socks but couldn’t find any good socks! So I made hats instead. I bought simple hats, 1 piece of red felt. I already had embroidery thread. I had only planned to sew the hearts on but once I was done, decided to add initials. They were very easy and fun! Thanks for the inspiration Erica.

Happy birthday to my friend, co-worker, and fellow Brown University alumna, Beatrice! I enjoy getting to interact with you in so many arenas. Thanks for your kindness, intelligence, and for being one of my blog subscribers! I appreciate it! Thanks also for turning me on to so many fun things: Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy, book club and nameless others!
Enjoy your day!
On your birthday, I thank God for you. I know you were meant to be my sister-in-law and friend. Thank you for your letters, your calls, your laugh. Thanks for your sweetness and your fierceness. Thanks for being wife of my brother and mother of my nephew. And aunt of my son.
Enjoy your day. I love you!
I am not a collector of books. I am a giver away of books. Sure, there are a few I keep: the odd poetry book, reference books, books of art and craft, bibles and prayer books, language books. I love cookbooks. But what I read most are novels and I don’t often reread novels. Novels have wings. They are meant to fly and soar. While I’m reading a book I’m always thinking of who I know that might like it. When I finish it I give it away and I don’t want it back. In that way books travel and soar and I like to be a part of that.
Why do handwritten letters mean so much more than emails? Is it because you are actually touching the thing your friend touched? Is it because it took more effort than just typing and pressing send? Is it because it’s historical and old? Why?

I had a pretty decadent menu at my Hello Kitty birthday party. I served all my childhood favorites:
Nacho Cheese Doritos
Cake and Ice Cream
Here’s how I was able to indulge and still keep my Weight Watchers vows:
1 slice pepperoni pizza
1 slice yellow cake with chocolate butter cream frosting
1/4 c. strawberry ice cream
1/8 c. m&ms
All that was 20 points. I get 49 points per week (I do the Simply Filling plan). Of course I was able to eat
unlimited salad, water, and baby carrots. That’s what filled me up. :)
