I love my MIB!!

For those that don't know, MIB stands for Man In Brown! :) AKA the UPS guy! LOL Yesterday he visited my house 3 times! Ok, so one guy was actually a Fed Ex guy but the other 2 visits were from my UPS guy! It was a great day here! First package to arrive was the birthday decorations I ordered for my daughter, Tatym's, first birthday! Such a bittersweet moment! On one hand I can't wait for her to hit all the milestones especially talking and seeing what she's gonna look like as she's getting older and all the fun stuff I plan on doing with her like tea parties and spa days and all that great mother/daughter stuff. BUT, on the other hand, they grow up soooo fast that I just want to freeze time and keep her this baby and also my son, keep him young and innocent! It gets harder and harder to watch them grow up but I feel unbelievably blessed to have two amazing children that are happy and healthy and just the best things in my life! So, enough mushy stuff before I cry! LOL Here's box #1 filled with party stuff! We're doing a ladybug theme for her party so I got cups, plates, mylar balloon, blowers, tiaras, invites and thank you cards and goody boxes and stickers! I only bought a little of each and I'll go to walmart and buy coordinating stuff MUCH cheaper!
Here's the box:


Napkins...aren't the ladybugs so cute??? LOVE THEM!

Next package I got was just my ink cartridges I ordered from Dell so I didn't snap any pics...boring stuff but still fun to get packages! LOL

Then, to end my day with a bang came my CTMH mystery box AND my new Nikes! I haven't bought a new pair of workout shoes since my son was like 2 and he's going on 7 now! LOL I started walking everyday for 2 weeks and was getting horrible shin pain so I broke down and bought these ADORABLE Nike Shox! Mind you, I have huge feet and tried shoes on in Lady Foot Locker and Big 5 and the biggest they carry is an 11 and it was just a wee bit too small so I had to order online and get an 11.5! Talk about big shoes! LOL Here they are:

Onto the best CTMH mystery box! I was so impressed and stoked about the first box I ordered that I couldn't pass up this 2nd one! For those of you that don't know, CTMH is offering a deal-of-the-day and everyday is something new. 24 days of the month if you buy a stamp set you get the DOTD free which has been things like a ribbon spool, flowers, sassy strands and what not. 6 days of the month they offer up these mystery goody boxes that are full of various products that you get 50% off. This box had $80 worth of products in it and I paid $40 for it. Here's what I got:
Dimensional Elements Numbers

Abundance Level 2 paper pack and Stickease

Because of You stamp set, Salutation booking stamp set, a package of various shades of brown brads and Heartfelt Ribbon Rounds

The Life Delights Memory Showcase which comes with an accordian album, stickers, paper and embellishments to make a complete album.

So yeah, fun day here at my house!!!! To top it off I had a great day with friends! We had our homeschool co-op yearbook signing party at the park and the Lord blessed us with an amazing day of gorgeous weather! My son had fun playing with his friends and I got to chat with the other moms. Sadly I had to say goodbye to my dear friend Bonnie who is moving away to Alaska this week! They're a Coast Guard family and are being relocated! I hate to see them go but I'm excited for their new adventure and look forward to lots and lots of pictures! Next we hung out at one of my best friends' houses for awhile then came home (bringing her son with us) and proceeded to have a HUGE water fight with my son and his friend while my daughter napped! We then had their whole family over for a BBQ and playtime! It was a really great day and I have the massive sunburn to show it! LOL NOW, hopefully I can get some creative work done tonight since I have to work tomorrow!
