Carson's 2nd Birthday Wishlist

Party planning is moving at a fast pace this go-around as I have left someone's birthday celebration slip up on me!! I have been jotting down goodies for her presents as well (some for us to gift and some for loved ones) and I know our little "Tink" is going to LOVE tearing into some of these new prized possessions... let's face it, we have an array of toys so we're not lacking in that department, but this mama has a feeling her littlest nugget is going to be OVER THE RAINBOW [haha, get it??] over a new activity table and PINK train set!

Wine2Go... Feature and GIVEAWAY!

Last week while on rendezvus at the beach, I posted a little snapshot of my new BFF known as Wine2Go... the collapsible // foldable // whatever you want to call it wine bottle! 
I had a feeling you all would love it as much as I did, especially with all your outdoor summertime plans and adventures, so today I am introducing you to this amazing company! 
Whether you’re at a summer festival, camping in the woods, relaxing on the beach, or anywhere glass is not allowed, Wine2Go‘='s reusable and recyclable bottle will have you covered. Once you’re done, all you have to do is give it a rinse and fold it away until the next time you’re in need of some mobile refreshment.  Oh, and it holds a FULL bottle of wine [yes, that is what sold me too!] And for all you liquor lovers out there, they make flask bottles, too... how genius is that!
A little more background: Wine2Go is a small organization based in Portland, Oregon. Small but mighty!  Their mission is simple... they want to make you smile.  Which means including a hand written note with each order [they speak my love language], playing tic-tac-toe with customers and finding unique ways to brighten someone's day (see pics included below).
Interested in winning a Wine2Go bottle for yourself??? I'm collaborating with this favorite new friendly company to give away FIVE bottles...so be sure to enter below. As always, you must be a follower of Hello! Happiness to win. Good luck and as always, thanks for reading.

"Let's Go to the Beach, Beach... Let's Get Away"
Yep, you guessed it... it's time!! At this very minute, we are finishing up our never-ending packing lists, stocking up on all the essentials for the car ride down [snacks and candy, duh] and are hitting the road to this amazing place
For the next week, you'll find me drinking a few of these, eating at some of our favorite restaurants [here, here, and here just to name a few], building castles in the sand with my two sweeties, and hopefully getting a bit of R&R quality time with my hubby as well. 
And for you loyal Sugar Bit shoppers, since we are taking off for a week [since small businesses need a vacation too], I am offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders while we're away as a way to say thanks for your patronage... and your patience! Enter code SUMMER in at checkout and your goodies will ship for free the Tuesday after Memorial Day.

Carson's 2nd Birthday...Over the Rainbow: The Inspiration

If you've met my second child, you'll soon discover she's not into Disney princesses for the most part [except for Anna] and cartoons aren't really her thing quite yet [though Mickey will suffice at times], HOWEVER, if you ask her what her favorite movie is, she will instantly say "Waz"...and if you aren't bilingual and don't speak her second language, what she is really saying is "The Wizard of Oz". Scary favorite for a little one? I agree. I believe this fascination came from her Mimi as it's her favorite movie as well...so it's one thing they absolutely agree on! And no, we don't sing traditional nursery rhymes at bedtime for my little one, only "We're Off to See the Wizard" and "Over the Rainbow" suit her fancy. 

I'm not sure how it happened, but she is enamored with all things Oz and so for her second birthday party, we are planning an Over the Rainbow soiree for our nugget Carson. I am SO excited and things are well underway for our fun yellow brick road, munchkin goodies, and decorating the casa in bright hues for her summertime birthday. 
Get excited because you know this party-loving mama is kicking it into high gear for this extravaganza!! Lions and tigers and bears... OH MY! Invites are out so let the fun begin.
