Sweetness in a box

Back in January, I was supposed to go to Austin to hang out with some wonderful women. It happened that MzEll was going to be in Austin the same damn weekend, AND! AND! AND! she was going to have her sweet baby Arlo with her, and I was over the moon! I was going to get to meet her and snuggle up to sweet Arlo!...
And then the trip had to be cancelled. I'm really hoping to get it rescheduled sometime in the spring, because I'm not sure I can wait much longer. Unfortunately, MzEll doesn't live in Austin, so I won't get to see her. WAH! No snorgling that sweet baby smell.
So I go to the post office last week, and there's a package for me!

I was patient, and waited till I got home to tear into it, but it was HARD.
When I got home, I nearly sliced my hand with the sissors, I was so excited.

Do you see the cuteness that is that purse!? Omg, if I didn't have to carry a purse that closes for both of my jobs, I would be shoving all my stuff into it right now! So, I am resigned to the fact that I will be using it as a cute lunch bag for my internship. SO.CUTE.

I honestly don't know how she did it, but MzEll gave me two books that have been on my REALLY-WANT-TO-READ list. I want to tear into Loving Frank right now, but omg, I have so much reading to do for my classes. Sigh. All three books are now sitting on my bookshelf, patiently waiting to be opened.

These cards are so adorable! Actually, it was a little kit to decorate the cards, and I opened them right away and got to creating. Now I just have to figure out who I want to send them to. :)

New to-do-list pads!! Super cute!

I have always wanted to try this stuff. And seriously, the packaging is so funny. Look!:

"Size matters"!
I *may* be a 12 year old boy. Sorry.
Back to the lip plumper. It works! And it smells like chocolate. What more could you want?? I put some on my sister's lips, and she flipped out when it started tingling. My upper lip needs all the help it can get, by the way.

Not only were these things in the box, but MzEll also included stickers, magnets, a way cute flower purse, and Hello Kitty jewelry for my girl! I have no photographic proof because the stickers are all over the house, the magnets are a clusterfuck on the bottom of the fridge, and I would be lying if I said I even knew where the jewelry was. That girl has so many hiding places in this house.

How sweet is MzEll?
Thank you sweets! You are lovely and sweet and kind and omg, why must we live on opposite ends of this large-ass state???

I love you, Mama... I'm so glad you and your sweet girl enjoyed everything. I hope you had a great birthday yesterday too! We'll get to see each other one of these days, I know it... MWAH!!

Oh, surprise packages in the mail are easily the best thing ever.
