My reader? Caught up. Empty. Done. Awesome.
When I got home from school yesterday, I found a package on the grill on the patio. Weird place, I know. I slapped a popsicle in each kid's mouth to have some peace and quiet, raced in the house, and tore into it. Yay! My prize from Nikki!! A couple weeks ago, I won a magnet from Nikki's giveaway. (BTW, have you seen her prize giveaway wheel? It is an engineering wonder.)
This is the magnet I won. Is it not the cutest darn thing you've ever seen?! I think Nikki got it here. Awesome.
Imagine my delight when I found this in the box, too! Awesome.
Did I mention the mailman put the box on the grill? The black grill? On a 75 degree sunny day? Yeah. I thought the candy bar felt a little soft. You know that didn't stop me from eating it though. I licked the darn thing clean. Awesome.
She also sent this plastic key chain that doubles as a weapon. You slip your fingers through the cat eyes and use the ears to seriously injure someone. Awesome.
And then I pulled this out. And I have to admit I got a little teary eyed. Nikki, the over-achiever, got all crafty and made this cutest plaque ever. So sweet she is. Awesome.
I did this today all by myself. This was a barren, overgrown area. I weeded, planted (seeds and a couple of plants) and mulched. Granted, I can barely move and have lost the ability to bend over. But it's definitely awesome.
I have been working with a lady at Ertl/Learning Curve planning some John Deere toy giveaways and product reviews. Stay tuned! So exciting and very awesome!
We caught the mouse! No thanks to any of the animals around here, but still...awesome.
The weather? Beautiful. 75 degrees, sunny, blue sky. A perfect day to spend outside eating popsicles, spreading manure, and working in the yard. Awesome.
