A Birthday Post!

Just a quick post today for my mom's birthday!
This is the bow for the gift we made her. I saw these on Pinterest and thought it was a tutorial and got all excited. Then I found they were just for sale, so I had to make my own. A $1.99 pink measuring tape, some thread & glue and I had this cute gift bow...

The funny thing is that I was so excited about the cuteness of the bow, I forgot to take a picture of the handmade gift inside! Oops! :) But we also made her these truffles from a super easy recipe...

20 squares Bakers Chocolate (I use the red box)
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
Melt 8 chocolate squares. Beat cream cheese with mixer until creamy, then blend in melted chocolate.
Refrigerate until firm, then shape into balls.
Melt remaining chocolate. Use a fork to dip balls into chocolate, then place on wax paper covered baking sheet. Add sprinkles, nuts, or nothing if you prefer. Refrigerate for an hour.

Happy Birthday to my mom and a Happy Daylight Savings Sunday to everyone else! xoxo
