Jolly Holiday Blog Hop 2013

It's blog hop time once again with my fabulous Bento Bloggers and Friends. I have to admit, I ALMOST skipped this one when I realized last Thursday morning that the girls were already off to school and I was packing, getting ready to head out for Big Sis' indoor soccer tourney in Virginia Beach Friday morning, not to return home until Sunday night. Doh! Didn't leave much time for a holiday lunch to be posted on Monday morning! But as I went to remove my name from the list, I just couldn't bring myself to do it and was struck by one last ditch effort. Hence, this is a very simple snack box that was made in literally 9 mins. Who says that quick and easy can't still be fun? :)

So here they are, the snacks I made to take on the road w/ us.

In these snacks:
  1. Applegate Turkey and American Cheese Elf Sammies
  2. Carrot sticks and sugar snap peas w/ ranch to dip
  3. Utz Holiday Pretzels (made in a peanut/tree nut free facility - who hoo!)
  4. Maplehurst Bakeries' Peanut-Free Cupcakes - love that I can buy safe cupcakes for my girls in stores!
And I just had to share a glimpse of just one of the many things that have been keeping me busy. Made 12 of these hair ribbons for Big Sis' soccer team's goody bags in team colors. They were fun to make, but maybe not necessarily 12. haha. I was pretty happy with the way they turned out and the girls really seemed to like 'em. Yay! :)


Now it's time to hop on over to see what fabulous lunch Jenn has made for her awesome Kidlet over at Bento for Kidlet. Just love all of her healthy, delicious and fun lunches! And happy belated birthday to Kidlet! :)
