what made my day

September 29, 2011

I love love love getting mail. But to put it simply, I was starting to get sad for the lack of packages that have been coming my way as of late. There is nothing more exciting than coming home and opening a brand spankin’ new package just for me. There, I said it. I love presents. Sorry I’m not sorry.

A very special blogging friend (and well, friend in general) and I talked about doing a package swap last week. (Not) to my surprise (because I knew it was coming), I found this package on my front stoop yesterday when I got home!

Any takers on who it might be from?

Looks good, doesn’t it? This package in particular came from the lovely Tina over at Faith, Fitness, Fun!

I could get all sorts of emotional on you right now and tell all about just how inspiring of a woman Tina is. You know how you have friends that you just absolutely knew it was fate for you to meet and become friends with? Tina is one of those people. We constantly joke and laugh about just how many things we have in common and how similar of people we are.

Despite the fact that Tina and I have never met (although there could have been quite an uncanny meet up for us back in May but unfortunately it fell through — rats!), I consider her one of my very good friends. She is always there for me to lend an ear or give me advice throughout any of my struggles in life. And heck, her kids are pretty darn cute too. What did people do to meet friends before the internet was available? Yeah, I don’t know either.

The package was filled to the brim with goodies, and what Tina selected to give to me just goes to show just how much she knows me!

Some chocolate bars to unwind after a long day at school…

A pretty new bowl for oatmeal eating and bright yellow measuring cups…

Two new bowls with awesome designs for some large and in charge salad eating…

And… a $7 gift card to Starbuck’s — you know, to match the money I made doing dirty dishes last week.

You better believe I have already used that Starbuck’s card (Hey, it is National Coffee Day!), and the oatmeal bowl holds the perfect amount.

Thanks, Tina, for making my day a little brighter yesterday (and every day!). You’re the best!

Question: What is the last package you received in the mail?
