Special Thank You's

Isn't it wonderful when fun collides with work? I think so. I am truly blessed to be apart of such a wonderful work team. We just had to say a proper, pinteresty, thank you to everyone who helped pull off our event. What better way than to say it with candy? Side note... similar to choosing shoes before the outfit, we chose our favorite candy then worked that into the prize.

Mason jars are one of my favorite things to incorporate into life - gifts, decor, necessity - the possibilities are endless. We crafted a sweet little treat message {printed on cardstock and hole punched on the top, right corner}, bought some sour patch kids watermelon candies, cut scrapbook paper for the lids, and tied on the notes with raffia. So easy and such a cute way to say thank you. 

For the second version we filled pretzel bags with candies and tied on the notes. A very cost effective way to produce in bulk. 

Brad Paisley Concert

As part of the Country Mega Ticket the tripod ventured out to the Brad Paisley concert a few weekends back. I came straight from Parent Orientation {7a-6p kinda day} and met Chrissy and Jared in the parking lot for a quick tailgate before we headed inside the venue. Fireball again <3 Jared ended up upgrading our lawn seats to actual seats - as if I would expect anything less from him. This concert taught me one thing... concerts with lots of friends makes for a fantastic tailgate, concerts with a small group make it a whole lot easier getting up to the stage.
