So yesterday I was greeted with not one but 2 birthday packages! A2JC4life and kjbaloo sent me wonderful things!! Grin Grin I meant to post pics last night but I kinda ate too many Almond Joys and had a bad stomache ache... Embarrassed
First I'll show you all my package from A2JC4life.

Here's the group shot ( before I ate too many Almond Joys lol)


She found a couple things on my wist and made a matching set! She made a tissue holder, coupon wallet and sewing case. I just love the fabric she chose. Smiley My hubby asked me why I didn't put a few things in the sewing case before I took pictures. *headdesk* lol


TEAS! This is an awesome combo of teas. I absolutley love my tea and now I have a few new ones to try. Not to mention the Mothers Milk tea. I've been looking for that tea since before my youngest was born. *Side note: I would be more than happy to do a person swap with anyone willing to send me a few boxes of Traditional Medicinals Mothers Milk Tea.*


She also sent me a bag of little Almond Joys and the coolest pink skully shoelaces. You can see them in the group shot. Smiley Just to let you know, A2JC4life, I plan to put the laces in my work out sneakers. Cheesy

Thank you so much for the absolutely wonderful birthday gift!!!  Grin Grin

That is one awesome matching set of goodies!  How thoughtful to send teas that meet your needs as a new mother!  I had no idea!

I nearly snorted out my afternoon tea reading about your little binge with the mini almond joys!! Cheesy

What a fun package as well with those cute shoelaces!  Happy Birthday to you!!

Now on to kjbaloo's package. Look at this!


Onsies for my baby!  Grin These are the coolest onsies I have ever seen! And that says a lot because I have some pretty cool onsies. Wink

Faerie! So pretty!


I thought this was genius and extremely cute. Smiley In case you can't read it it says I'm Mommy's Lil' Pin-Up Girl.


This one I was so very very very happy to see. I had my youngest baby at home and I am so proud of that and glad that my daughter can say she was born in my bed. Smiley


Thank you so much!! I didn't get a chance to get an action shot yesterday but I'm going to try to get one this evening before I put Violet to bed. I'll post what I take then.

I think I may have a problem. I have zero control lately and every time I looked at the bag of almond joy goodness I couldn't stop myself.  Cheesy I paid dearly for it though. My stomach was very unhappy with me. lol

Yes it was a very fun package!!  Grin

Those are really cute and so personalized!

awwww how great that you will be able to tell your child about her home birth! (and have a keepsake for her own!)

I hate telling you, but nuts are a natural laxative... Sad

I had insomnia last night, so I got a good portion of my gift to Alchamy513 done! There was some trial and error (mostly error) so it is taking a bit longer than I anticipated, but I think that it is turning out well. I will probably not get it finished until this weekend...

I was concerned because when I found my package from lindyv321, it looked like this:
 Shocked


But, luck was on my side!

I received my Big Bang Theory/Bazinga t-shirts!!  I wore the blue one to work today and all my geeky co-workers (we work for a computer software company!:) )were so jealous!



For some reason, lindyv321 did not like how it turned out and made another one!  My hubby does not watch the show and thought I was showing off the "girls" Cheesy  duhhh!



I love them both!! Thank you so much...

oops--almost forgot, she also sent some extras!  Teas, much needed ribbon, an inchie and a cute little card!
