Tuesday Talent Show #74

Hello and Welcome back to this weeks edition of the Tuesday Talent Show!

I hope your week is off to a great start and that March is a fantastic month for you. This month is a fun and exciting one for my family.

On Friday, my husband and I celebrate our 5 year anniversary!!! I just love my man and can’t imagine spending this crazy life with anyone else by my side.
Also this month, my husband turns 30 :) I am beginning to start the brainstorming for a fun way to celebrate. If any of you have any ideas, send them my way. To me, 30 is a fun age to celebrate. I am one who LOVES to celebrate birthdays, and 30 has got to be something amazing!!! :)

Now that I have shared whats been on my mind this week, lets kick off the party shall we?!

    Hey Nikki,
    Thanks for featuring my Cinnamon Brown Sugar Bars! P.S. I bought my camera (It's a Canon Eos Rebel T3). I am still figuring out how to use it, but hopefully next weeks photos will look more like yours :)

  4. Amber @ Dessert Now, Dinner Later!

    Oh & I saw a cute idea on Pinterest about filling a jar with kisses & make a tag saying, "Kiss your 20's goodbye!" Not a party idea, but a funny gift. :)

    Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to your hubs! My husband is also turning 30 this year, I am taking him on a surprise trip to Vegas with some friends!! 30 is definitely worth a big celebration!

  11. Shannon

    Thanks so much for hosting! It was my first time here and I will definitely be back, lots of goodies. I'm also now following you on facebook. :)

    My husband just turned 30. He loves golf, so I set him up with an early tee time with his buddies which gave me time to get his surprise party ready for when he came home. He was so shocked... I'm always a sucker for surprise parties. :) Good luck with the planning, I'm sure it will be great!

    Ok, I don't have a blog. In fact, I just found your site today. In fact again, this is only the second post I've seen on your site and I'm already extremely happy to have found it!

    Thanks so much! This is like Pinterest without all the extra stuff I don't care about!

    On birthday week I like to leave in different places the age of recepient, a surprise with the years as the amount. for example: 30 pennies, 30 pieces of favorite candy, 30 rolls of lifesavers or tootsie rolls, 30 cookies - you get the idea. One for every day in lunch boxes, the car, the bathroom, by the computer etc. Of course packaged as creatively as possible. A fisherman could be given lures etc. 30 packages of Top Ramen would be hilarious! Include chopsticks of course!! Cheetos, Oreos and such. Just my idea of fun!
