mail call

Going to the mail room is like Christmas morning for me!  I miss walking across the street to the mailbox with Buster, but this is a whole new adventure for me!  If your mail is too large to fit in the tiny box, they give you a slip of paper which you have to hand to the volunteer who then brings you your package.  I am such a dork and love to try to guess what it will be or who it will be from!  Well today was an exciting mail room day for me.

1st, I finally received my postcard from Ashley as part of the postcard swap that Jessica hosted =)
 I found out it took a little while to get to me because it had to travel all the way from CANANDA to JAPAN!  I didn't know where it was coming from, so I literally squealed (and got several crazy looks from strangers in the mail room) when I saw I had a postcard from CANANDA!  I BIG PINK PUFFY HEART CANANDA!  Jessica, you couldn't have picked a better person to send me a post card and Ashely, I can't wait to read all about your adventures  from Canada =)  Thanks for the gorgeous postcard!

Then the nice man behind the counter handing me a box from Shutterfly and I knew what was in there...
 YAY!!!!  I love them (so much so that I was too excited to show you to take the time to get out the nice camera or put it on the scanner)!  I'm going to spend the rest of this dreary, rainy fall day writing them out so they'll be ready to go in the mail the day BEFORE Thanksgiving (gotta make sure they get to the States in time!) and PS, if you get one in the mail, at least ACT surprised!

I also got my mom's Christmas present in the mail today but since she reads this, I won't be posting a photo (sorry mom, you have to wait till Christmas!)

and on a completely random side note, if you have never tried a Fuji apple, drop what you're doing and run to the nearest grocery store and buy one(the more red the better)!  They are one of my favorite fruits and I love that I can get them SUPER FRESH here!
they're so good they give you crazy eyes!

I hear you on the mail thing. I have to drive to get mine and I'm there daily. Sometimes I go twice if there was nothing there the first time. I haven't quite figured out when they put the mail out.

I'm also really sad I missed the postcard swap. I love all these swaps!

YEA!!! I'm glad you got your postcard and how exciting that it went from Canada to Japan?! LOVE it. I'm definitely going to do this again sometime in the new year, and I'll give people plenty of time to sign up again :) Thanks for linking up and playing along!

I'm so glad you received my postcard!!! Sorry it took so long, but I hope it was worth it! It looks like it made the journey without getting too beat up too! :)

I adore your Christmas cards!!! They are gorgeous!
