I’m back, or, I’ve finally escaped from the birthday abyss. Yeah, and I found some lost bento photos too. Part 1

So it seems in my house children’s birthdays do not last a mere 24 hours, they last an entire week. This is always the case, every year, both children, without exception. So up until yesterday I was fully engulfed the celebration of The Youngest’s anniversary of her birth. Let’s just say I have alot of catching up to do, especially here, where I’ve been neglecting this little blog of mine.

First things first. I want to thank all of my new Facebook Fans and Google Followers! I love you guys and can’t thank you enough for stopping by and leaving your encouraging comments! Thanks!! As promised since I have reached (and surpassed) my 100 Google followers, I will be hosting my very first giveaway!! Be sure to check back later tomorrow for all the details, there will be some awesome bento goodies. Plenty to get you started if you’re new at this or just to add to your growing collection. Come on, you KNOW it’s growing! ;) I hope to have all the info and photos up tomorrow evening, make sure you follow me on Facebook if you don’t already so you can be one of the first to enter!

On that note, and since I couldn’t possibly do all my catching up in one post, I’ll leave you with some lost bento photos I found languishing on the memeory card of my camera. Enjoy!

 This is a snack bento for The Youngest, packed in a fish shaped Little Mermaid box I picked up at our local Disney store.  In it she has a BabyBel cheese with a 2 carved in it (it was 2 days until her birthday at the time), a clementine “umbrella”, some delicious granola chips and some broken up strawberry Pocky. Yum.


This is a lunch bento on a day closer to Valentine’s Day.  This was packed in a bento box I bought from Japan on Ebay.  It has cute little kitties on it.  Sorry for the off coloring of the photo, not sure what happened, but it is a cute one so I thought I would include it anyway.  In The Youngest’s lunch this day was some thin pretzels (which she thinks look like hearts), a mini bagel with strawberry cream cheese, a white cheddar heart which I drew on with my food safe markers, a few heart marshmallows, a small heart-shaped cup with chocolate covered marshmallows, some strawberries carved into heart shapes along with some Truvia in the red cup for dipping or sprinkling the berries.  She loved this lunch and said I could make it exactly the same again!


Here we have a rare glimpse at the lunch of The Oldest.  This day she had ramen in the food jar, along with a little side bento containing some mini Club crackers, clementine sections and a few pieces of an Aero chocolate bar.  This of course was a hit as well, how could it not be, its full of carbs!!!

Have a great evening!
