WooHoo! Yesterday, the mailman delivered the second package from my blog contest winning streak. The very kind and generous Joni had a contest to name her adorable little doll (whom I named Frizzy Lizzy.) I won, and Joni sent me a goodie. Look how sweetly she wrapped it up:
She sent me a cool Amy Butler kit to make a little hanging paper basket. I’ve never seen one of these and it looks really fun. I love paper crafts and I love baskets — a perfect match! I ripped into the wrapped package and look what I found:
A fabulous set of note cards with a quilt pattern on the front. Just look at those beautiful colors. And you can’t see it, but the paper is textured a little bit. You can rub your hand over the blocks and almost feel them. I LOVE note cards and stationary. Joni, f I didn’t know better, I’d think we’d been friends for years — you’ve picked gifts that are just perfect for me. Thank You Very Much — I love them both! Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail is wonderful — and VERY much appreciated.
It’s a good thing I’m giving away Red Bunny tomorrow — it makes me feel a little less guilty that I’ve been on the receiving end of such fabulous gifts. What a lucky girl I am! We’ve spent our last Friday night with Red Bunny. We had a cookout with a few of the boy’s friends and then took Red Bunny and the kids to Cold Stone for a little treat — the first we’ve managed to have this summer. Um-mm good!
And finally, I managed to visit MeMum’s and watch the latest Big Love. (I think I’ve mentioned that we don’t have HBO, so MeMum records it for me.) I’m glued to Big Love this summer and I can’t believe there are only four episodes left. (It’s going to be an unbearably long haul until February and the return of Sawyer!) In order to quell my Red Bunny separation anxiety, I’ve been playing the “Find Out Which Sister-Wife You Are” game on the HBO website.
Dang it! I knew I wasn’t that little trollop Margene, but I was sure I was a Barb! I guess that shooting the Mountain Dew cans off the porch did me in. ;-) Which Sister-Wife are YOU???
See you tomorrow night!
