Dedicated to one I love - Kado
Kado over at Our Life in Perfect Cadance has completely out done herself. For.Reals.
I got a little slip of paper in my mailbox saying that a package was waiting for me to pick up. I grabbed Tuffy (he's my arms) and we headed over to see what the grand prize was! I admit, I prolly drove really, really fast cause I was so excited!
Tuffy carried the HUGE box out to the car and then used the keys to rip the tape and open it up.
It was like Mary Poppins carpet bag and things just kept coming out, and coming out, and just when I thought it was done, something else appeared!
And not just prizes for me, but something for her bestest cousin ever. Martie.
A little something for Ethan, which is so timely considering he is extremely sick right now at up at PCMC for a couple of days. The Shark was so appreciative when I passed it along last night.
And for me? I just can't even tell you how excited everything in the box made me.
Skittles for my sort-n-soothe issues. Desperately needed right now what with being all laid up and crapand yes those are darling Halloween ziplock baggies! So darn cute!
More treats that I can share with Tuffy so he'll leave my Skittles alone. Including specialty pickles from her local farmers market
An uber-cool water bottle
A newspaper edition full of nothing but this beautiful specimen of a human being, fantastic baseball player, and a generally good human being
Something for Sissy
And the ultimate? The GRAND prize?
Yes a Retro Yankees hat. This is the same style worn in 1903/1904 back when they were called the Highlanders. I FREAKIN LOVE IT!!!!! It's gonna be a great addition to my collection and display in the yet to come Yankees room.
Well Splenda and I had fun playing around, and those pickles? Seriously, the pickles we have EVER TASTED!!! They are spicy hot and absolute perfection! I can't wait to put them in a spicy brat dog with onions, ketchup and mustard. I think I want a whole meal designed around these bad boys
Kado, I freakin LOVE you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!
