Amex Challenge Day 3. Plus, $100 Crate & Barrel Gift Card Giveaway!

It's day 3, and the last in my American Express gift giving challenge.  You might remember from a few posts back, that Amex challenged me to use 150,000 of their Gold Card Membership Rewards points on 3 peeps on my holiday list.  And they even generously offered up a $100 Amex gift card to a lucky BonBon reader, just for taking their fun Facebook quiz (hurry giveaway closes 12/16).  The first gift I tackled was for Floyd and then it was on to the Dude.  And last, but certainly not least, is none other than...

Our 2010 Professional Family Photos

Bear with me lovelies, but I just had to share with y'all some of our family photos from our recent session with a sensational photographer! I won a photo sesh with the lovely Maria Snider from Snider Shots Photography from Ashley over at Lemon and Lavender and what a fabulous stroke of  luck that turned out to be! Maria was beyond kind even after we were shamefully late for our first session, consequently ran out of light and had to schedule another one. We were on time for the next one, but the dude was...

Champagne Saturday: A BonBon Rose Girl Does Philly

So, as you know, last weekend I jetted off for a weekend getaway with my ladies in the city of brotherly love. We had SO much fun that I forgot to take any proper outfit pics. I assure you that I busted out some cute looks, like my sequin pocketed Ann Taylor Loft cardi, for instance, but you'll just have to take my word for it. HA! Oh, and no, we did not plan to all sport the same color bags. We're just chicks who happen to love mustard. What can I say? Take note of...

Quick and Easy Ornament Craft

Happy Friday lovelies. This has been a crazy week and only 8 hours stand between me and happy hour, whoo hoo! Hope you all have fun Friday nights in the works, even if its vegging on the couch with some wine and a chick flick! Outside of my normal office duties, this week I had to come up with a way for 50 grown adults to craft an ornament and trim a tree in under 30 min.  The results were pretty fun and I think we all enjoyed a break from our regularly scheduled meetings, but...

Peppermint Bark, Perfect for Gift Giving

This weekend my friend Kate and I made Peppermint Bark.  It was for a good cause, a bake sale with the proceeds going to a local food bank and I figured Peppermint Bark was a festive treat that was easy to package into single servings.  The only issue was that neither of us had ever actually made Peppermint Bark before.  Luckily for us it wasn't that hard and it turned out amazingly delicious!  I loved it so much I think I may make a second batch to hand out to neighbors!

O Hanukkah, O Hanukkah…A Delish Potato Dish

Many of you might not know this, but we are equal opportunists when it comes to celebrating holidays in our household.  I celebrate Christmas, Floyd celebrates Hanukkah, and together we celebrate it all!  Although to be fair, I'm still very new at it and not nearly as advanced at kitchen skills like brisket and challah as I'd like to one day be. So, when my girl, Di (short for Diane) asked if I wanted to do a joint Hanukkah dinner, I thought it would be the perfect way to show Floyd some holiday cheer, as...

Gift Giving Challenge: The Gadget Guy

As I mentioned last week, American Express has asked me to participate in their Membership Rewards gift giving challenge.  With 150,000 points to use, I'm working to find the perfect holiday gifts for three peeps on my list regardless of whether they've been a little naughty (ahem!). And anyone can take the Facebook quiz and let us know their gifting personality for a chance at a $100 gift card! Up first on my list is my gadget loving hubby, Floyd.  He's not the easiest person to shop for, so I was a bit skeptical whether points...
