a happy mailbox.

So the last few days have felt like Christmas for me, minus the food babies, excessive spending and annoying family. I knew I had a little surprise on the way from Annie Cristina, but I had no idea that she'd basically send me an entire store! I can't lie, she's one of my favorite blogging friends, and I often wish Florida and Virginia were closer to one another! Even Chris was jealous; anytime I get fun packages in the mail, he always says that maybe he should start blogging for all the great friends!

Can you believe everything she sent me? And I also got a cute beaded elephant bracelet in the package, but I forgot to photograph it (even thought I set it out for that very reason). I'm sure you can see why I feel a little spoiled right now! Side note, do you feel weird about posting pictures of yourself? I do. Okay, so as if that wasn't enough, that's not all I received! The sweet and beautiful Fritzi Marie offered to send me a set of Grease buttons! Growing up, my brother and I religiously watched Grease and Mannequin every single day of our summer break for several years. I still love Grease and sing the songs quite often, and I imagine this button now makes me an official Pink Lady (Frenchie was my favorite)!

While I'm on the subject of gifts, remember how I begged you to help Chris and I out with the altruismed project? Well, I still have some little gifts waiting around to send to anyone who prints out a card (or multiples) and lets us know how they used it!

  2. What a fabulous package! Lots of really cool stuff.

    My sister and I watched Grease all summer long, too, when we were kids. I kind of miss it!

  3. Aw, I'm glad you liked it! The headband looks so cute on you. :-)

    I always feel weird posting pictures of me online, too. And Ricky downright hates it when I post pictures of him. But I do it anyway. ;)

  11. annie, when i want to post a picture of chris, he tell me that he has to approve it before i can, to which i reply, "it's my blog and i do whatever i want!"

    taz, i love your thinking! trust me, if i ever do get a donkey, it'll be the scream of excitement heard 'round the world!

    claire, you're always too sweet! i guess i hate posting pictures because i'm just so incredibly shy.
