Sweet Surprises

March 17, 2011

In the last few days I've received some sweet surprises from friends and family. What would I do without such great people in my life?

My cousin Jamie sent me season 4 of Dexter since she knows I'm obsessed! Thanks Jamie! I've already finished the first disc. I heart me some Dexter.

Just last night my Aunt Linda in Missouri sent me a mason jar in the mail! It was such a surprise. I need to ask her if it belonged to my Grandma...because then it is extra special.
For a few weeks  Erin and I were on the hunt for this Katy Perry nail polish called Black Shatter and we couldn't find it anywhere. Then out of the blue her husband ran across it at a store and picked up a bottle for her and one for me! He even mailed it to me himself....so incredibly cute. Thanks Mike!

And of course I have to mention my blog friend Leah. I can't remember how I found her blog but I am so glad I did! Leah has become a friend through blog comments and our little e-mails to each other. I've also become friends with Leah's co-workers Lacey and Jen. They are such sweet girls and I hope I get a chance to meet them all in person some day! I have met some amazing people through blogging and it has been such a blessing.

Leah and her husband Kyle just welcomed their baby girl Emery into the world last week! I had these stuffed blocks made for them using Emery's nursery colors and they turned out so cute! I forgot to take a picture of them before I sent them to Leah, but she was kind enough to post them on her blog. I had them made through Lovin' Ewe on Etsy. I think they are my new go-to baby gift!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! I hope you are wearing your green and don't get pinched!
