Friendship boxes and some catching up to do

Well my bloggie friends if I have any left :) 2011 is off to a bang for me. Very busy, lots of things going on good and bad.
I will only speak of the good This lovely couple is my parents on their wedding day March 4Th 1961. In just 7 days, 53 family and friends will be heading out on a 4 day cruise to celebrate this momentous occasion. I am down to the last few details this week before we set sail! Can't wait!!! Aren't they the cutest couple? Although the cruise is not a surprise, we have some special things planned during their renewal celebration that will be a surprise!!! We have this photo in
8 X 10 size within a large matte that can be signed by all their guests. They will love that!!! We also have a DVD presentation with lots of photos and several really cute and some hysterically funny Jib Jab's that John prepared!!! It is going to be a hoot!!!! Happy 50Th Anniversary Mom & Dad-- your love is inspiring!

We are also moving to a larger home this week. Good and bad again. The good is that it is a much bigger home, with a big kitchen with an island, and a big bathtub in the master bath!!! Yippee for me!!!! We start moving Thursday and the cruise is Monday! YIKES!!! I have most of the kitchen packed so I know we can do it!

I have a non profit group lunch on Wednesday. We haven't had a meeting in months and I fear that members are losing interest. So,,,, I offered a "surprise" for all members who attend. This small pizza box is the "surprise". Found the nice "Friend" paper at Joannes and I had the tiny friend stamp and tiny tag punch previously purchased from Stampin' up. The photo doesn't do these justice. (The box is filled with mints).


  1. Hey Tina! Congrats to your parents. Good luck with the move. And have loads of fun on the cruise! Best wishes, Tammy

  2. You're always BUSY! Hope your cruise gives you some time to relax, I know you'll have a blast. Your parents are great role models and really sweet and nice people, I'm glad they have such great kids to do all this for their 50th. Good luck with the move, I know the house thing has been stressful for you. Look ahead, lots for you to enjoy and make new great memories. The pizza boxes came out really cute ~ the club should love your little surprise! Big hugs, Julia
