The person who said it was best to receive after a long day at work wasn't kidding! We had our first day of in-service classes today, and they were offerring whooping cough vaccines for free. Since I catch whatever my students have, I took advantage of the opportunity. Little did I know that my upper arm would be so SORE afterwards!
That said...I came home with my sore arm from work, and THERE WAS A PACKAGE THERE FROM ISAKKIAH JAI (sorry, I just know I spelled that wrong
)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was worth the wait! (I am unable to take and post photos until I get a chance to try the new photo hosting so IJ kindly agreed to post photos when I receive. So for now, I will post a description of the items:
*When I tore the brown paper off the package, there was cupcake wrapping paper underneath! I carefully took it off the package, and I am saving it for a future project. I LOVE cupcakes!
*Underneath the wrapping paper was MORE CUPCAKES! IJ gave me a cupcake shoebox! It is AWESOME, and I'm going to bring it to work, where I am always in need of more storage items.
*Inside the box was two packages. One held an ADORABLE embroidery that says: "Mrs. B is the bestest teacher in the WORLD!! Love, I.J." She even embroidered lines on the fabric to make it look like lined paper! It is going in my motivational bulletin board in my classroom.
*The other package held decorated notecards! Wrapped in red ribbon and there is a TON of them! Both the envelopes and cards are decorated!
*Two rock candy lollipops which were immediately eaten by my girls! (They say THANK YOU too!)
*Lastly, she wrote me a LOVELY note on a card with a flower cutout!
What's so funny about this is that IJ and I are partnered in the 'Random Swap', and we really hit it off. So she already knew all about me before this swap even began!
