  4. No way is that your First Muffin Tin Meal?! It's awesome!

  5. Thank you! I'm going to start following these and jump on the themes and actually make it on a Monday next time :)Yup 1st time ever. I've been watching a few in my bento group and they look so cute but knew I had to wait for a stay at home day as I don't have one with a lid. We're learning all kinds of fun stuff it's out first year doing bento lunches , learning how to make characters and just about anything out of our food. Fun stuff.

  6. This is so cute!!! My daughter is looking over my shoulder screaming make me this lunch :-D

  7. How cute! I do themed alphabet movie weeks for my kidlets and have been wanting to do 'U is for Unicorn - Despicable Me' all year! It's next on my list, but we took a couple months off due to a big out-of-state move. We should be in our new home soon if all goes well & then I can start back up (:
