Lovely Day...

My day didn't go quite as I planned, but that is a good thing. After I took all the kids to school, I stopped by my best girl friend's house. I told her that me and the boys could only stay a bit because I had a ton of stuff to do at home. Well, we talked and talked, she made us an awesome lunch of meatloaf sandwiches (don't things taste so much better when someone else makes them for you?!), and before we knew it, 5 hours had gone by(Mason had even taken a nap on my lap). So nothing got done at home, but the boys and I had a much needed break out of the house.

And when I got home, I found a nice surprise on my porch. My giveaway win from Gina at Cat Nap Inn Primitives was waiting for me. Here are all my goodies!! 2 embroidered white bar towels, an embroidered Spring towel, a cute snowman doily, recipe cards and make do pad, 2 bags of yummy bowl fillers, coconut linen spray, and my very own personalized kitchen towel!
I did a double take as I was photographing this because I didn't see what it said until I saw it through the lens. I noticed the cow right away and thought it was sweet of Gina to remember that I love cows in my kitchen, but I was blown away when I saw that she put my blog name on it!

These smell so GOOD!!
I put my towel here for now, but I am going to have to find a safer place for it before the kids drip sauce or what not on it.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Gina!! I love it all!!!!!

And they weren't my only gifts. My dear friend gave me these today too. A new pickle for my glass Christmas tree and a neat tin link garland. I have never seen one like it and I can't wait to find a spot for it in my kitchen. She hates having her name mentioned on my blog. So I will just say Thank You again for lunch and my gifts ******* :)
It wasn't the day I planned, but it was very nice and unexpected.

Have a great day,

  5. Isn't wonderful to have a friend who provides a "home away from home"? I remember doing the same thing when my kids were small. We'd drink coffee or tea all morning and my pal would keep wonderful food coming. A pleasure. Your gifts are great. It sounds like the day was very special indeed!
