Care Package

I got a package yesterday from my mom! Let me tell ya, it was a much needed care package. Yesterday I was a little down in the dumps, but that really helped brighten my spirits. Since my favorite hair product can only be purchased in the states, (at least I think) I asked her to send me some more hair spray and root lift, thank goodness the package arrived yesterday because I was almost out. She sent me some Mary Kay eye makeup remover and little tid bits of make-up. And of course sent some extra little goodies for me:

A makeup bag with lotion, body scrub and a tiny roll on perfume.
The fragrance is pineapple. Smells very summery!
It's prefect because I really wanted two makeup bags,
one for home and one for travel. Now I have both.


But check this out! This made me uber happy.
It's a wine cork.
Isn't that the cutest thing ever!
My mom knows us too well, we love our wine and wine accessories.
Care packages make me SOOO HAPPY! It's so nice to receive little things from home and from our families. It could be the smallest thing and Jon and I would be giddy as can be. For instance, Jon's mom sent us Sweet Tart Bunnies/Ducks for Easter, we were like kids in a candy store. My step mom sends me sweet cards. My best bud sent me a card letting me know I was missed! and Val has sent me some really great things. Thanks Mom, Janie, Brandii, Val, Lish and everyone else for all of the sweet care packages and letters you send. You have no idea how much we appreciate them. God has blessed us with wonderful friends and family!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! One more day til Friday!

I agree, care packages are the best.
You've sent me some pretty special packages too and I was super excited to get them!

I love the wine cork. How cute is that?!!

I remember when Kristen attended OSU a lady in our church that Kris didn't even really know asked me for her address and she'd send her packages often. She said she had worked in a mail room at a college and knew how much it meant to the kids to get mail and packages. Recently (after about 4 years) :) Kristen had on some socks that Jan had sent her in one of those care pkgs.
Isn't that sweet?

I'm so glad your mom was able to brighten your day like that.

Love ya,
Val
