Today has been FANTASTIC!!!
I got up early this morning (6:45 am) to head up to the school to get some homework finished before my art and english classes. In Art Foundations we're displaying all of our projects finished to date to be critiqued by the entire class. I got some great feedback and nobody attacked me over my last project which is supposed to be socio-political themed. I chose the issue of abortion and my piece ended up pretty graphic, so I'm relieved that nobody harassed me for taking such a bold position.
I got home from class to rustle together some lunch and I had a delightful surprise waiting at my doorstep. My package from my partner Mrs.FatFace in the Fave Things swap came while I was at class.
She's beyond amazing and she sent me some fabulous goodies!
We even sent eachother some of the same things; a candle, stationary, and some chocolate goodies. She sent me the Moose Munch Chocolate bar from Henry and David, I've never tried it before and anything with chocolate has to be delish! She also included the book "Post-Mortem" written by Patricia Cornwell. I love to read and can't wait to curl up with this book while I wear the cozy St. Patty's day socks she included.
She sent me these beautiful purple earring that she made herself. How crafty! She even has her own etsy shop full of more of little beauties like these earrings. I also can't wait to try out this Passion flavored TAZO tea.
Thanks Mrs.FatFace, all your goodies are wonderful!
Also, I have one more announcement that I'm EXTREMELY excited about. I love (read 'obsessed') with Pioneer Woman's blog and she's doing a contest to invite four bloggers to come visit her and Bakerella at her ranch!!!! I live less than an hour away from the ranch and I am so entering. I'm praying like crazy that I'm one of the 4 chosen! This would be blast, a cooking tutorial with PW and Bakerella! I'd be in heaven :)
I also want to give a shout-out to my new followers. Thank you so much for stopping by! You ladies are wonderful!
