About Me

My Photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Brown Paper Packages

   It was a hot and busy day of dentist appointments, schoolwork and shopping but look what was waiting for me on my front porch when I got home!  Katrina, my Christmas in July partner sent me a package of goodies that all stood for a letter in the word "MERRY".  M (monogram)- "L" stationery, E (everyone must have this!)- a fun movie (Never Been Kissed- such a great movie!) with chocolate (Now where did that giant chocolate bar go??), R (red and green item) pad of paper, R (re-gifted item) She really spoiled me on this one with a NEW Starbucks travel mug- in pink! and Y (you want one for yourself) Laced by Carol Higgins Clark.  Katrina- I absolutely love Carol and Mary Higgins Clark and have read almost all their books- EXCEPT this one!:)  Thanks so much for all the wonderful gifts!

   Then, lucky me, I got to open yet another package from my partner Brenda. We participated in the Simple Woman's Summer Swap together.  Brenda is one talented lady!  Look at the beautiful sugar mold candle holder she painted for me!  What a gorgeous summer scene!  She also sent me a funny book on tape and a pretty candle and candle plug in that smells like "Beach Walk".  Who wouldn't love that?!  Plus, look at the detail on the homemade penny mat.  Yep, she also made that!  She has a darling shop called Pumpkin Patch Primitives.  Don't you just love that name??  Stop by and take a peek!  Thank you so much, Brenda, I love everything!

I'm glad you liked everything and haven't read that book! I recently read it and loved it! I LOVE every book they have written (and probably own all of them too!)

Brenda said...

You're very welcome. I can't wait for the Fall Swap. I just love sending gifts to total strangers, it's almost as much fun as receiving them! LOL! Enjoy!

Speaking of brown paper packages! K's package arrived. I'll blog about it when we get back from the movies. We're just heading out the door. You spoiled her! Tell Amanda a big "Thankyou!" and a blog entry is on the way. So much for me 'catching up' with the blog before moving on. I'll just have to have a time warp, and go on from here. :)

Wow Lori! It's looks like Christmas time over at your house! I love the MERRY idea very cool! Hey...What happened to the chocolate bar? :)
By the way. Never been kissed is one of Ronnie and my favorite movies-We are always quoting this movie! Ronnie cracks me up doing imitations of Josey grosey!
