Mail Call!

Happy Friday!  Sit back and grab a cup of your favorite beverage, as this is going to be one long Thank You post to some wonderful people.  When I returned home from vacation, there was a post office box overflowing with mail, including some fabulous birthday boxes and a swap package.

First is a birthday goody box from Chan (be sure to check out her Help Whip Cancer contest if you haven't already).  She sent a Barnes & Noble gift card (which will soon be used towards my Nook!), Lindt chocolates and a gorgeous scarf.... look at those colors... I LOVE it!  Oh and yes, those are dog treats in there too... because if you're a fellow dog Mama you know that we can not send a box to another human without including the furkids, right?

They not only know there is something there for them, but they could smell Chan's girls too...

I'm too tired to care...

Thank you Chan... I love it all!  I wore the scarf the very next day and got a gazillion compliments!

KarenBdayBox_1010My dear friend Karen sent an adorable pumpkin hand towel, pumpkin candle, super soft aloe infused gloves and socks and Lil Zeus.  You may remember Newman (who she made for me at the start of race season) and Lil Tango (made for Tanya) ... well, now we have Lil Zeus, complete with a Patriots bandana!
