Literally tied up with string, people!
So a few weeks ago I win a giveaway on Bethany's blog...it's 30 bucks cash. Sweet, eh? So Bethany shoots me an email saying it's on the way so I keep my eye on the mailbox. Well I was clearly watching the wrong spot because look what showed up on my doorstep! A box! Yay! Who doesn't love a box?!? John brings it inside but I can't tear into it because I'm feeding the babe. "Go get the scissors!", I yell. He comes back with the scissors in one hand and the camera in the other. "You want pics, right?" He's such a good blog husband. Anyway, look what was waiting for me inside the box!
Note to anyone who is going to send me anything EVER, please send it like this. TY
I know right?
The tags! The ribbon! The trim! I can't take it!
So inside the card was the $30 plus the sweetest lil note from Bethany telling me what to open and why. Since she's working plus going to school, she feels my being-on-a-budget plight. Neither one of us can go around buying cute little things here and there just because. Well, she, being the awesome do-gooder that she is, felt Gabe and me needed a little help to get through the winter. (Although she's probably the one who needs the help, poor girl lives in snow-bombarded Wisconsin for cripes sake). Anyway, look what Gabe received...
I know, superly duperly cute, right? Plus she sent matching mittens but since we're currently teething ( I felt teeth yesterday folks!), we need access to our mouths at all times. ya know, for shoving our entire hands in. And when I say we, I suppose I just mean him. I'm certainly not trying to do that, just to see if I can.
Oh and look what I got! A soft new scarf in just about the peacockiest of blues imaginable. Please try to use the word peacockiest today.
It looks great in my green bathroom right? Maybe I just won't ever leave the bathroom. Anyway, package #2 contained Peppermint bark...which we ate much too quickly to take pictures of. Nom.
So go read Bethany's blog. It's filled with gorgeous pictures and pretty pretty words. I read somewhere, someone else describing her life as a romance novel in the making...and it's so true. She's got a cute new boy (named Gabe!) who's over in Iraq and the stories of their first meeting and subsequent adventures is incredible. Like I said, if you haven't already, go read. Thank you Bethany! Hugs and big drooly open mouth baby kisses!
