Easy gift.

Yay for Friday!  Who's with me??  We have a busy weekend ahead, well, some of us more than others...  Abie has a birthday sleepover tonight and Landry is heading over to Grammy and Pa's :)  Mike is getting a tattoo to on his right calf to honor the marathon and I'll probably hang out with him for a bit, or maybe get some shopping in.  Tomorrow, Mike and my dad are working on the basement, this makes me SO happy!!  Then we have a birthday party for our little neighbor boy who is turning 1!!!  After that, we're dropping Abs off at another sleepover, this one for her volleyball team.  She's going to be exhausted!  Sunday will be a slow day, only Mike working on the mud and tape in the basement and then Dirk has puppy class.  I'm worn out just thinking about all of it!!  What are your plans for the weekend?

Since Abie is heading to her coaches house on Saturday, I thought she (the coach) might need some chocolate.  I pulled this little gift together lickety split on Wednesday night.

Just a simple Mason jar, filled with Hershey's kisses.  Then I wrapped twine around the lid and added a little leaf and button.

I added just a few embellishments to the lid.  A simple little circle and some hearts :)  I hope she enjoys it!

Thanks for stopping in on this lovely Friday!!  I hope it's a perfect one for you!  I'll see you soon!!


  1. Such a simple gesture. I'm sure her coach will appreciate it.

  2. Great gift idea! Thankfully we have only 1 thing on our agenda - a bonfire party welcoming our friend's son home from Afghanistan. Hope you have a few minutes to relax!


  3. So sweet of you to make this sweet treat for the coach, I am sure she will be very appreciative. Very thoughtful :)
    You do have a busy weekend, as it is Sunday, I hope you survived ;)
    Always exciting to see things come together. Is Mike good at finishing the drywall? If so send him over, we still need to do our downstairs bathroom ;)
    You know what I did this weekend, shopped my butt off ;)

  4. this is just so darn cute!! wow talk about busy!!

  5. What a fun gift for Abie's coach!

    It sounds like you had a very busy weekend! I hope you all had a good time and that Abie enjoyed all of her sleepovers!

  6. Sounds like a crazy weekend, but I love that cute little jar!
