Happy Birthday Jen Lemon Bars!!

Sometimes life with 4 busy little boys gets in the way of blogging, and this time life has completely swamped me with stuff {mostly good stuff!} so I've sadly been away from my blog for a while.  

But there is NO way I'd miss this very special birthday party for
Jen of Four Marrs and One Venus!

If you know Jen, then you know all about her wild and crazy dancing videos, her amazing DIY projects, and her always cheery, always positive outlook at her blog, Four Marrs and One Venus.  If you don't, well you should hop over there today, wish her a Happy Birthday, and see what I'm talking about.  I guarantee, you will LOVE her the very first time you meet her... just like I did!

Unlike the majority of my blogging friends that I adore but haven't yet had the pleasure to meet, I actually know Jen in real life!  We met playing Bunco at a mutual friend's house a few years ago- back when we were both just dipping our toes in this whole blogging adventure.  She was SO fun and funny and I will never forget that when I went to leave that night at Bunco she ran up to me and said, "I want to give you a hug!  I really like you!"  Honestly, she is JUST LIKE THAT in real life.  She is friendly and positive and adorable and REAL.  And wow, it is so refreshing to meet someone like that, right?!

Soooo, today's Jen's birthday and I'm thrilled to be part of this big birthday celebration where some of Jen's friends from around Blog Land are all teaming up to surprise her on her birthday!  The mastermind behind this fabulous plan was Julie at White Lights on Wednesday... yay, Julie!  And since Jen is always so bright and cheery, I wanted to make something that reminds me of sweet, happy times so I baked up a batch of lemon bars in Jen's honor.  Until a couple of years ago, I thought lemon bars ONLY came from a box, so to make them from scratch really just about blows my mind every time :)

I fancied them up, since they are for a birthday after all, with washi tape & paper straw mini flags.  I definitely jumped up the whole "washi tape bandwagon" a little late, but now that I'm on it I don't ever want to get off. I am addicted to using washi tape for just about everything because it's so fun, easy to use, and easy to move if you mess up {I need more crafting supplies like that in my life these days!} 

Instead of boring old squares, I decided to use a flower shaped cookie cutter to make lemon flowers, because they are for Jen after all and boring, old, and square are definitely NOT words to describe her! 


My little two-year old Luke really got into celebrating Jen's birthday and tried to "blow out the candles" which got me thinking that these little washi tape/straw flags are the PERFECT thing to use on top of a little one's birthday cake instead of a flame!

Happy Birthday, Jen!  You truly are one of a kind.  I am so happy to be blessed to know you, and to be a part of your birthday celebration.  Cheers to your best year yet! xoxo

Jen has great blog friends who are all participating in her Virtual Birthday Party!  Here are their links to go see how they are celebrating Jen today...

I even now don't forget the old school days. We utilised for being taken to excursions to unique cities the moment every year. In these cities we would be taken to well-known industrial homes and factories. I nevertheless recall one view factory that I had visited when I was quite young. The employees all dressed from head to toe in an airtight and dust evidence white colored jacket kept me intrigued. I had asked the instructor who accompanied us and she explained that it was to help keep dust far from the assembly line and therefore away from the watches. Their motion (that is certainly what their mechanism is termed) is quite precise as well as a speck of dust might bring about havoc with the way it keeps time.

All of us have been presented with mementoes in the kind of the wristwatch. You could be asking why am I stating all this historical things and just how does it concern this informative article? Currently, when I was browsing the net, seeking Omega replica watches and I was stunned to discover the identical model that was gifted to my by the view agency so could very well many years ago. The prices weren't practical since the replica Omega expenditures about a single hundredth with the unique one particular. Retaining this like a yardstick, I calculated the value of the authentic view I had with me and I was stunned. But a single has to hand it to the everyday people who manufacture these fake Omega watches.

They do not have the identical huge complicated the unique manufacturers have and still they produce replica Omega watches of such exceptional likeness. Perhaps this is actually the cause they can deliver these replica Omega watches at this kind of a very low value. Then I've also noticed that almost all of these replica Omega watches are only sold in excess of the net. This implies that they do not have to commit numerous dollars promoting in an assortment of medias such as the genuine enterprise does. I pretty much forgot to say that the replica Omega watches do not have real jewellery while in the type of diamonds and other valuable stones on their dials. The replica Omega watches also do not have casings created from valuable metal, and even their bands are made from cost-effective alloy metal.

All of those variables combine with each other and can make it achievable to the producer to supply you with replica Omega watches that happen to be priced far significantly less compared to the actual ones. If any one among you has the chance to go to a watch-assembling factory, and if likely, the dial manufacturing segment, you will definitely comprehend the tricky operate that goes behind manufacturing every dial. The dials on the replica Omega watches should undergo the exact same practice as well. This is certainly what beats me. There is certainly no cutting of throats over right here. Nonetheless they've got managed to maintain the costs of these fake watches so minimal, that each and every single individual can afford to purchase one of them.
