Pink Saturday

Do The Upcoming Holidays Have You Feeling A Little Rattled?

This time of year things start to get a little crazy!! There is so much to do, so many places to go, so many crafts I want to do with my kids, so many new recipes to try...Sometimes I start feeling a little rattled. But then I slow down look at my little ones and remember we don't have to do everything. The most important thing about being a family is taking time to enjoy one another and the special times we share. So I have decided the only kind of "rattle" we need around our house is the baby kind. This was my rattle when I was a baby I just love the dainty flowers, and the pretty pink, all of my kiddos have used it (yes even the boy).

Don't stress, don't worry Think Pink!!! And if you can get your hands on one shake a pink rattle, it's sure to make you feel better.

If shaking a rattle doesn't calm those nerves, and make you feel less rattled try one of these yummy cup cakes.

I found the idea for these cupcakes in a Martha Stewart Living magazine. Mix up your favorite cupcake batter, fill the cup cake cups as usual and place a miniature candy bar (I used Snickers) on top, bake as usual, and you have a candy filled cupcake!! I iced some of the cupcakes, no icing is really needed on these yummy treats. The only thing that would make it better is to serve it on a pink plate.

For more pink Shake Rattle and Role on over to Beverly's place.

Fancy That, I'm not gonna be rattled this Holiday Season. Well, not too rattled.

awe, that little pink rattle brought back lots of sweet memories of my daughter when she was a baby. I think every rattle and little dress she had was pink. I would love to have some of them now. The cupcakes look yummy!

Are you tired of hearing "love the rattle" yet? It's adorable, not at all like the bright neon things they make today.

If I had a little baby again shaking that pretty pink rattle I would really be calm. Some day a Grandma I hope. Sounds like good therapy to me, and comfort food works too.

You're Invited to A Christmas Fair in Blogland on November 21st. Stop by and read all about it.

Happy Pink Saturday,
