WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!! wowowowowowowowowow!!!  i just got my package from tiffie1023!!!  oh my god! it's amaaaaaaaaaaazing!!  i'm sorry there are so many photos but i was just so excited!!!  thank you SO much tiffie! you were so generous!!! god, i have had SUCH a shitty day and this totally made my day!!  xoxo!  i totally had the best partner EVER!!

the whole shabang!

i can't believe these are my shoes!  i can't believe that i OWN these and they will be rocking around town on my feet! they are aaaaamazing!  they say "rock the thunder" (i like the phrase 'thunder thighs' so it's a personalized play on my fave fatty pharse!) and "eat cupcakes"! 

manatee cat toys for milo! he loves them! they are so freaking cute it was hard to give them up!!!

this top is amazing!  i love the way the front is cut!  i obviously need to wear a tank top under it, but it's so good for layering and cute!  the art on the back is so beautiful!  this top + tank top + little red skirt = night on the town here i come! so hot!

this amazing fatty pin up embroidery is totally going on my wall!  it reminds me of my favorite of dita von tease's burlesque in a giant martini glass, only hotter with a cute fat girl! <3!!

lovely magnets with yummy treats that i can't wait to put on the bulletin board i just got!!!

most AMAZING hand embroidered pillowcase EVER...seriously!  i can't believe she took the time to sew each of these amazing cupcakes!  wow!

shiney letter "curves are phat" wall art! i can't wait to look at this everyday!  there is a cute elephant and kitty on either side!

cutest robot shirt in the world!!  it's amazing!  i loooove this!  it's inspired by a shirt on my wist i think, but this one is hella cuter than torrid's stuff!  the robot is serving up my heart!  this shirt totally owns my heart!!

this package seriously almost made me cry.  tiffie just put to much effort into every little detail and sent all kind of extras and i was just so amazingly touched that this "internet stranger" took so much time out of her life to make all of these wonderful things for me!

ok, i got this a few days ago and i've been slow to post photos, but this package completely made my week!!!!

check out this amazing package from Lilyvanilli....

she addressed it to "milo + sarah" and when the mailman came to drop it off we had a really cute conversation where he asked who milo was and when i said it was my cat, he got really excited and said "oh! that's the name of the little guy i always play with in the window?  great!  i am so glad he is getting a gift!"  then he talked to me about how he notice he was sick a couple weeks ago and wanted to know if he was ok!  cute mailman!!

a kitty first aid kit for my cat!  he had been really sick at the begining of the month and is finally feeling better, but it has been a rough month for him, so it was an awesome gift!

included in the package: catnip, balls, catnip mice, treats that he is now in love with, and a sweet little "meeeeowch" get well soon card!  so amazing!

he loves it!!

and then there were things for me:

amaaaaazing embroidered cupcake on pink polka dot background!  i love it!  it's so perfect and i can't wait to see it hanging on my craftroom wall every day!!

scrapbooking supplies!  lots of great paper, stickers, die cuts, tags, plastic cover sheets, etc!  so great!  it was really inspiring to get down and get started on some scrapbooking!

THANK YOU SO MUCH LILY!!! it's all so perfect!  you spoiled the heck out of milo and i and we really appriciate it!  Smiley
