Bachelorette Party Favors

A few days ago I mentioned that I went to Vegas for my baby sister's bachelorette party. Since I'm her only sister and maid of honor I put the event together. I had these glasses done up (Holly at AllMyGoodness did them!) and made little survival kits. I just loved the way they turned out and wanted to share them with you.

Each person attending the Vegas bachelorette weekend recieved a personalized wine glass.

I also made up these survival kits for the party. In them is:
2 drink mixes
1 mini bottle of liquor
2 bandaids (for your feet after dancing the night away in heels)
1 granola bar
2 tylenol
Shout on the go wipes (Nobody wants to go with a stain on their dress)
2 sticks of gum
1 nail file

Last but not least I gave everyone a copy of A Reliable Wife, because you have to have a book to read at the pool!

A Reliable Wife - Book Review

A Reliable Wife is a best seller that's been around a while, but I only read it recently. I was chosen as a World Book night host and they sent me twenty copies. I decided to start a book club and we all read the book. I would be lying if I said my friends liked the book, but a few did! One of the gals in our group mentioned she saw a movie a while back that was the same story line as this book. So, of course I checked into it. My friend was spot on. This book came out ten years after the movie Original Sin starring Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas. I haven't seen the movie, but from what I read the book could be ripping off their movie.

I didn't like or not like the book. It's interesting to read and well written. I always enjoy historical fiction. I learned some new things about that time period in America. I hated most of the characters. Usually you can pick at least one character you want to succeed, but not in this book. I would try to summarize the book, but it's just to complicated. One thing is for sure, you will never guess the ending!

Trying to get organized

After two weeks of no internet I'm excited that I am once again back online. During that time I sold a house, moved into our new house, went to Vegas to throw my sister a bachelorette party, and you know all the other stuff you do all the time when your a mom and wife.

Now that I'm back from Vegas I've been more focused on getting our new house together. It's slightly bigger than our previous home and we ran out of room quicker that I would like to admit. After scouring pinterest for ideas I've just ordered three things to make my home more organized and utilize spaces better.
The first thing I ordered was this hair dryer/curling iron holder. It can hang on the inside of your bathroom counter door. I love that it is big enough to hold my hair dryer, curling iron, my straightener, and my brushes.

  • Update - This product does not hang low enough for me to be able to shut the door with my hair tools in it. I use it as a caddy basically. I keep my straightener, curling iron, hair dryer, hair spray and brush in it. When I need it I pull it out and set it on the counter or hang it on outside of the cabinet door.

Next up spice holders to go on the inside of your kitchen cabinet drawers. I saw these on pinterest and it took me quite a while to figure out where to get them. Most pins said this was a mop holder and that is not actually the case. I picked out this specific one, because the price was a few cents cheaper and it holds eight more spices than their competitors.

  • Tip: Separate each one that way they don't get weighed down and fall off.

Last, but not least I ordered this mop/broom/swiffer holder. I actually had one of these at our rent house in Vegas and loved it. It works well.  I plan on installing mine just inside the garage where everything will be handy.
