You've Got Mail

I love watching the mailman walk up the street to our house. I love the anticipation of what surprises might be arriving in our ugly black metal mailbox. A new Pottery Barn catalog, the latest issue of one of my favorite magazines, a party invitation...not so much the bills though.

I especially love it when one of these

arrives with my name on the packing label.

I've recently been the lucky recipient of two blog giveaway prizes, and I wanted to take a minute to thank both of my bloggy friends.

Rhiannon over at Pink Sugar Desserts sent me something special not too long ago.

I was so excited to see this neat cupcake stand arrive all the way from Canada (eh)!

Now I need a good excuse to make some fabulous cupcakes!!

I know mine won't hold a candle to Little Miss Baker. Her site is full of gorgeous, sugary, delicious photos, great tutorials, and fabulous recipes. Don't click over if you are hungry!

Courtney at Women Living Well had a Monogrammed Towel giveaway and guess who won? Moi.
Of course I chose pink!
Courtney is such a sweetheart and I love stopping by her blog to find encouragement. I also love the banner on her cute!
What about you?
{Do you love opening the mailbox?}

  8. Ooh, cute towel! But I'm all about the cupcake stand. Cupcakes are so much fun, aren't they?

    I like getting mail, too. My son walks out to the mailbox to get the mail, and I try to tell, from his expression, whether there's anything fun!
