Sweet Treats (includes Book Giveway too)

This is part two of my “February’s Book Club Meeting,” post were I shared pictures of all the awesome Valentine’s Day boxes the girls from my book club made.

I decorate my dinning room window with book club invites. I used clothespins to attach the invitations onto a Valentine’s Day garland with hearts on it, for the book club meeting. It made me reminisce on all the past books we have read and our monthly meetings and how much I always look forward to them.

Just like when we were little kids at school on Valentine’s Day, the girls brought Valentine’s Day goodie to put in our boxes. One of my favorite goodies came for Christi. She made heart magnets. She got wooden hearts, painted them, added glitter, and clued magnets on the back. What a simple, yet adorable idea! Maybe, I’ll make some for next year for the Valentine Craft Swap. I made a flower design on my refrigerator with the magnets.

Since it was my birthday this month, I received a $10 gift card from Barnes and Nobles from “The Bookies” that all the girls pitched in for. Christi and Amanda (mother and daughter) got me a much wanted “I heart Fire Fighters” t-shirt and it was boxed in a cute alligator gift box. Christi and Amanda were afraid that I already own the t-shirt but I didn’t. Once I opened the alligator’s mouth and realized what it was I ran to the bathroom to try it on. I love anything fire fighter related. It was a size small and I was afraid it would fix. It did fit!! I was so excited that I couldn’t stop squealing and thanking them. It was the perfect gift!

After, passing the Valentine’s Day goodies, we ate. I made Rueben sandwiches; I cooked the corn reef all by myself! The sandwiches came out delicious and that’s saying a lot since I don’t cook. After dinner we discussed the book, “Outside Valentine” by Liza Ward. Two people out of seven liked the book but you can make your on conclusion because it’s BOOK GIVEAWAY time! One of the girls was generous enough to donate her book. The giveaway also includes a “Reading is Sexy” pin. Anyone, anywhere is welcome to enter.
