Mail call!

Last month Kat hosted her first ever gift swap - A Favorite Things Swap.



It just so happened that out of 43 bloggers she got my name. And boy am I glad she did! Yesterday she gave a little preview to what I was getting...



Suffice to say I was estastic to get home and see it sitting on my kitchen table. After opening my packages I think Kat is my long lost sister. She and I seem to have very much in common right down to the packing material we used.

That "mountain" behind my goodies is made up of grocery bags from Kroger and other various sources. And here I thought I was quite clever in using them in the package I sent to Angie.



Here's a list of the greatness I received:

Cucumber Melon handwash from BBW - A regular staple in my house
Pumpkin & Spice shower gel - It smells good enough to eat.
Sharpies!!
Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie who I adore
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore - a humorous look at religion
WICKED journal - I guess after I stalked her page in order to hear the broadway tune Popular from Wicked it was pretty clear I would love this. And I do.
3 magazines - FULL of recipes
HUGE, I mean GINORMOUS bag of Peanut M&Ms - That S prompty tried to steal

I was thrilled with everything - getting to know Angie and Kat a little better, plus I love getting this kind of mail. I'm definitely in for the next one.

Bring. it. on.

I wasn't the only one to get a package yesterday. Look what our WV pals sent S...




They are hardcore Barrack supporters and S adores Palin. Not for her politics - he just thinks she has that hot teacher look.

And if you want to know what a GILF is, just let me know...

Oooo...I'm so glad that you liked everything! I wish I had known that you might have liked a kitten or two ahead of time. I surely would have sent them packing :-)

Palin wouldn't last two minutes as a teacher. She has no spine. And is kinda creepy, too.
