This past Wednesday Liz from Western New Yorker & I decided to hit up a FUNdraiser together to benefit our local library. She reminded me the night before that her birthday was this Friday (today), so it would be like an early celebration.
I couldn't go empty handed!!! I had to bring her a gift!!! Call me weird, but gift giving is one of my favorite things. I just love seeing people smile when they open presents. Don't get me wrong I do love receiving gifts as well, but I'm convinced that the older I get, the more and more I enjoy giving to others . Gift giving has totally beat receiving these days. Who would of ever thought my high maintenance self would ever convert to the other side ;-)
So long story short, when one of your blogging besties has a birthday, you get crafty. At least I do.
Since we are both wine obsessed, I decided it would be fun to pimp out a wine bottle for her. She has a little boy at home so I'm sure this bottle will definitely come in handy in the very near future. Wine is what keeps us mothers sane!
So I ran out to the liquor store since my wine fridge is apparently filled with "cough syrup" tasting red wine according to Liz, and bought her a bottle of Moscato. Our mutual hobby of wine drinking might be one of the things that brings us together, but we drink total opposites.
Ta-Da!!!!! Isn't it pretty?!?!?! I think it came out pretty fabulous if I don't say so myself.
And then Wednesday evening came! Fabulous FUNdraiser for an even more fabulous cause! This might me the blurriest selfie of all times, but hey, it's photographic proof that we indeed did go drink beer for a fabulous cause and had a little pre-birthday celebration as well! Happy Birthday Liz!!!!
Ans since I'm in such a gift giving mood, I will let y'all download this wine label printable for free!!! Hope you give the gift of wine to one of your besties sometime soon :):)
Thanks for stopping by!
