In the mailbox today there was a package waiting for me. It was a rectangular manilla envelope. I knew instantly what it was because recently I entered a contest on Carri’s blog and was one of two lucky winners. Want to know what I got? Here! See for yourself!!!
Carri made this beautiful necklace and I LOVE it! It’s dainty and delicate. Plus, included with the necklace was a surprise. A book by one of my favorite authors. And then, in the small baggie with the necklace was this:
“A little bit of happy, just for you.” How is it that some people know just what to say to make you smile? I so needed this little note. It really made my day. Carri, you are so talented. I would totally buy a necklace like this and you need to make more and sell them on Etsy.com!!! If you haven’t been yet, please visit Carri’s blog. You will be so inspired by her gentle nature and her incredible gift for crafting things. Thank you, Carri! I really love it and am going to start reading the book tonight before I go to bed! I really consider myself blessed to count you as one of my friends.
They were watching an episode based on the TV Show from the 80’s called MacGyver.
It’s funny because never ever did I watch an episode of that show but I was familiar enough with it to follow along while the Mythbusters tried to prove or disprove some of the things that happened on that show. The Mythbusters is pretty awesome. They did another show on pirate lore that was incredibly fascinating. What really cracks me up is, when Sean is home, all three of them sit around watching it. I guess even big boys like to watch stuff blow up. LOL
Right now, the boys and I are snuggled up on the sofa watching our new favorite show, George Lopez. I’ll see you all tomorrow!!
