Hello Hunger Games.
If you are not a fan of The Hunger Games, I am sure that you are over all this talk about the movie. At Blissdom in 2010, I remember sitting at lunch with Tiffany. She told me all about this book that I needed to read, The Hunger Games. I ordered it online, right from our lunch table, and it had arrived when I got home. I think I finished the book in less than two days. I was hooked.
Hello to Erin for planning a fabulous pre-movie dinner get together!

Hello to a rad gift exchange!
Hello District 11. I was assigned District 11, which is Agriculture.
My gift was some mini ceramics plants with herb seeds along with a mini veggie garden starter kit. I placed everything in a box and wrapped it in brown craft paper. I was going to stencil, “Greetings From District 11″ on the top of the box with a Sharpie. But Angry Husband had a better idea, and he whipped out a can of black spray paint. Seriously awesome, right? I don’t have a picture of it, but I also tied some twine around the package.
Hello to ending up with Drew’s gift from the exchange.
If you have read The Hunger Games or seen the movie, you would understand the wording on the tote bag. “I Love The Boy With The Bread”, refers to Peeta Mellark a character in the movie. Peeta gave the main character, Katniss, a loaf of bring when she was younger and starving. The blue bird is a reference to a Mockingjay, a symbol within the book/movie. And well, The Lucky Charms refer to the actor, Josh Hutcherson, playing Peeta in the movie. Josh is ummm, a tad bit short. We might have referred to him as a Leprechaun via text messages.
