FEBRUARY FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (February 5 – February 7, 2016)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello Everyone!

I hope your week has been going well. Who is a super bowl fan here? I am not, but my husband is. Which means, he goes to his Man party and I get stuck with the kids on a Sunday night!

I will be having to entertain them for sure! For those of you in my boat, here is a bunch of Super Bowl themed Crafts that I found online : http://www.babble.com/home/11-super-bowl-crafts/.

I am also getting amped up for the Valentine’s Day Party I am hosting. There is going to be a LOT of awesome food and we are going to be decorating picture frames to celebrate this special day. It is going to be one of my smaller events and more intimate, which will be a nice change so I can really talk to all of the families that come out.  There is more information on this below…

I hope you have a wonderful and fun Super Bowl Weekend! 

Cheers!

Jennifer
