First Class Happiness...

I didn't blog very much yesterday because my Stepmother's mother passed away on Sunday so I was trying to pitch in and help where needed. After being out in the rain yesterday, the THIRD full day of rain I was tired, gloomy and more than ready for Spring.

Then I got home. When I saw my kitchen table the clouds parted, sunshine rained down on me and blue birds sang in my ears.

THERE WERE PRESENTS!!

First one I opened was a birthday gift from my WV pals...BumpIts! Huh? "Bump whats" you may be saying?

These are BumpIts...



They are described as "hair volumizing inserts". I'm happy to say they really work. In fact I'm wearing a small bumpit today and looking cute if I do say so myself.

Then the next package was from Jen @ My Life with the Crazies.

Cause I won TWO different giveaways during SITS Spring Fling, one of which was a Vera Bradley purse with matching wallet from Jen.



Love, love, love it! Green IS my favorite color...

I also won Sunday at Tiffany's by James Patterson from Tiffany @ Poetry and Hums AND Eat at Home.

The same Tiffany that was trading comments for donations to the Global Food Crisis Fund. The same Tiffany that posted a Depression Era bread recipe yesterday that I promptly went home and made.

Yes sirree, after I opened all my gifts I made 6 loaves of bread, a chocolate loaded cake, a huge bowl of baked beans AND dinner AFTER work.

And I even cleaned up my mess. Can you say Superwoman?

Happy St. Paddy's day ya'll!

Totally super woman! Sorry about your stepmother's mom.

I'm glad you totally got lots of goodies though!

Those hair things look cool!

Nothing like a few gifts to perk you right up! I've been thinking about the bumpits, but I'm probably too old for cute hair. LOL

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

I need to take a nap after reading about your day. Mine was busy too but I think you beat me in productivity. I just dealt with multiple meltdowns!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying "hi"!

I'm sorry about your loss..... It seems that timing has it right, just when you needed it the most, to receive the gifts. I'm happy for you!

You go girl! Sounds like a super productive day!

I don't suppose you want to model those hair inserts? I'm dying to see how they work...

Donnetta said...

SUPERWOMAN!!

I'm so sorry about your stepmother's mother. It's been a tough time around blogosphere. :(

I have thought about the bumps...I might just get me some now that you say they work. I am so in to big hair..I can't wait til the 80's hair comes back. I will be a peace.

Shannon said...

Superwoman, indeed!

Carrie said...

Wa-hoooo! I've seen those and wondered if they actually worked. I am thinking that my hair is so fine the bumpit would probably just fall out...
