My swaparooni from TheAngelForever arrived yesterday, so I had quite a treat waiting for me when I got home from the
gym health club. I didn’t even shower before I started ripping the box open!
I had a great time opening the package (with Mike and our friend CDW observing and taking pictures) and loved all of the notes that TheAngelForever put on everything. She’s so creative–she used paint chips in various shades of blue for all of the notes. Here’s a picture of everything she sent.
She sent me return address labels with snowmen on them, holiday notecards (perfect for holiday thank yous and letters to friends and family), pens, white-out (with an oh-so-true note about women not making mistakes!), oven mitts, wintery soaps and chapstick, magnets (an angel and a snowflake), Peppermint Patties (my favorite), and wrinkle releaser. We used to go through wrinkle releaser by the gallon when Mike had a shirt-and-tie job, but since he got a job with ultra-casual attire (we’re talking jeans and a sweatshirt–I’m sooo jealous), I stopped buying it and resorted to bribing him to iron my work clothes for me. Because I DESPISE ironing, and, in all seriousness, he’s much better than it than I am. He’s very happy to be relieved of his ironing duties by such a great product! The wrinkle releaser will be great for our upcoming trip to Vegas, because as much as I hate ironing at home, I hate it even more on vacation!
AND, in addition to all of that stuff, she also got me beautiful handcrafted blue glass earrings! Here’s a picture of me with them in all of my sweaty-ness:
Her note said they reminded her of the glass at the Bellagio in Vegas. What a perfect comparison! Since I’ve been sitting around in my PJs all day today I haven’t worn them yet, but you can bet I’ll be wearing them to work tomorrow!
Thanks for a great swap, TheAngelForever! It’s been great getting to know you and your family through this whole experience and I’m so glad to have you as a new online friend!
