Engagement Anniversary & Ninjabread Men (and giveaway reminder!)

Okay, before I get to the Ninjabread men, I have to wish my dah-ling fiance a happy anniversary--it was a year ago today that we were basking in the glorious Florida sun, rubbing elbows with our favorite Disney characters, I was violently sick in the ladies room at Cinderella's Castle (if you haven't yet, you should check out our engagement story--it explains everything!) and Brandon asked me to be his wife.

We plan to celebrate today by going out for lunch and wrapping bouquets--best way to celebrate!!

And now, onto a different topic!

We made Ninjabread cookies to take to Brandon's mom house last weekend--they were tasty, sassy (especially my red headed Ninjabread woman) and adorable!!

This is the kit we used--they sell on Amazon for $29.95 but we found the exact same kit at Big Lots for $5.00!! If you live near a Big Lots, go check it out. We don't have one in our town but there is one in the town my MIL2B lives in--if you don't have a Big Lots near you or they're sold out, I recommend just buying Ninja cutouts (you can find them here on Amazon for fairly cheap).
We wound up just making our own gingerbread and not using the packet inside the kit. This is what they looked like out of the oven--cute huh (Ignore our botched counter tops--we live in an 80s town house and hope to move soon!)?
We also decided to forgo the frosting in the box and made our own chocolate frosting which was delish!
The finished product--cute, huh?
I already told Brandon that when we have a son, I'm going to throw him a Ninja birthday party just so I can reuse the cutters to make cute brownies, cookies, etc.

Switching topics yet again..

I wanted to remind everyone of the beautiful giveaway we have going on right now!
