Easter 2012

We had a wonderful Easter this year :) Not only did we get to spend some time with our wonderful families and eat a lot of good food, we worshiped our risen Lord! That is what Easter is really all about anyway! 

We went to church with my parents. My dad was preaching at Gateway since they are still looking for a new pastor. Then we headed over to Josh's parents house for lunch. My parents came & it was so nice to have everyone together!! Except my brother who couldn't make it :(

"Love is Brewing" Tea Bag Favor

A good friend of mine is getting married in a couple of weeks and I am a bridesmaid :) We threw her a bridal shower last weekend at her sister's house and I was in charge of the favors. I found out only a few days before the shower that I was in charge of the favors..... Luckily, I found some cute ideas on Pinterest and put a couple together {found here and here} and this is what I came up with:
They were SUPER easy to make and did not cost a lot either. Her colors are black and white with touches of red. Here are the supplies I used:
I bought a box of flavored green tea for around $3. I also bought a package of these little clear plastic bags at Wal-Mart over in the cake decorating aisle. They were about $2 and 50 came in a pack. I already had some red fabric that I used to cut out some hearts. 

I took the tea bag out and took the lipton paper off of the end & hot glued the heart onto the end. I used Microsoft Word for the tags and printed it off onto white cardstock and attached to the bags. And that is it!! 

Here are a few pics from the shower:

The shower was fun and she got a lot of cute stuff. We are throwing her a lingerie shower Monday night and I am looking forward to that!
