Wide Awake Now!

This was a "girls weekend." The hubby's off saving the world, and the boy is off with his grandpa and uncle.... so it was just us girls.

So, what do girls do? - stay up too late, eat too much, and shop of course!

Saturday night, after a marathon day of shopping, dinner out, and more cosmic bowling (took the kids this time) I was tired. I mean - Cosmic bowling doesn't even START until 10:00 PM, so by the time we got home it was about 1:30 in the morning. Tired...... straight to bed....

But wait! - what's this I spy on my porch as I drive up? A big box the mail lady has left us. This is very mysterious - I'm not expecting anything...

Turns out, Kaity, on the down-low, has been scheming with the most wonderful knitter in blogland - Mistress Stash Enhancer, who wanted to send me a little something - just because she likes me!!! And not just me - there was something in there for EVERYONE - even the guys and the kitties!!!

I opened the box and - 1:30 AM or not - we're all wide awake now! Oh.My.Gosh. So many goodies!!! It was like Christmas :o)

She sent me some Socks That Rock!!! - in a beautiful "Pebbles" colorway! I had mentioned to her that I had never seen it "in the wild" - and so she sent me some - because she's just so cool like that! She also included a beautiful handmade card, some pretty blue glass stich markers, and some cute little glass ladybugs - and even some cedar blocks - because she knows I worry about my yarn so!

She sent Kaity some beautiful Trekking (she's already finished one footie!), green glass stitch markers, and some great lip balm.

Lilly was surprised to see a package with her name on it - a packet of bath bubbles and what she tells me is now her favorite lip balm - (and, believe me, this girl knows lip balm.)

I'm not sure what's in the guys' packages, because they're not home yet - but even the hubby and The Bud got something! Hmm...., very mysterious. (Feels like it might be candy - not that I tried to peak or anything :o)

And- check it out - even some catnip to grow for the kitties. How cool is that!?

I don't know what I did to deserve such an amazing treat - it was such a great surprise, and everything was so pretty, all packaged and bowed, with handmade cards - THANK YOU! I'm humbled by all the time and thought you must have put into this! You made my day and made me feel very special. God bless you - You're the best ;o)

There's almost nothing better than coming home to a package with yarn in it...and a surprise one at that!

I just got my first STR yarn & can't wait to make a pair of socks with it. Do you know what pattern you're going to use? I'm having a difficult time deciding!
