This weekend is the baby shower. Which means from now til then, I will be in a baking frenzy. I'm sitting here looking at my menu and on the agenda is 24 cupcakes, 24 mini cupcakes, 24 more cupcakes, 1 batch of cookies, 2 batches of Jello, and that's just the dessert.

So, I'll be a bit busy from now til Sunday, and I am going to give you the chance to win the party favor. It's a little mini blue gumball machine, is that the cutest or what? Anything mini is to die for. It is color coordinated to the shower invite, OF COURSE - since I am the queen of coordination. The party guests also get a set of personalized stationery which will act as placecards so they'll know where they are seated. Now you can win the favor AND a big stash of justJENN designs stationery on top of it! That's a big prize. You'll have writer's cramp for years.

I've planned out my baking schedule pretty well, so I don't think I'll be going crazy (I'm just using this as an excuse not to blog). In the meantime, just leave a comment on this post, the contest ends Sunday the 26th. I'll be busy til then...frosting cupcakes til my arms fall off. Good luck!

The Slackmistress looked at me funny when I was describing how my family does Jell-O and said I was more white than she. I am glad to see that other Japanese families besides mine bring Jello-O based entrees.

Adorable! I, too, am helping to host a baby shower this Sunday, although my favors are simple little plants and nowhere near as cute. Also, I think I get a pass because I currently know 23 people who are pregnant, and I will be going to the majority of the showers. Wowza.

One time I bought my (ex)boyfriend a real gumball machine, and he opened it and was like "but I already have a gumball machine." Because he had one of these mini ones.

Ok first of all, not the same. Second of all, what a jerk. Third, I want to win your cute mini gumball machine and stationery!
