My very awesome birthday.

Well, today is my birthday! I woke and got ready for class to find I did not have to get up early because class was canceled. Of course, I only found this out after waiting for 20 minutes. That will teach me to check the door for a note from now on! So, no class on my birthday. Score 1. I then dropped my DH off at work today and found I did not have to wait in a long line (thank you Columbus for this holiday). Score 2. Then my parents made a surprise visit bearing cards and flowers. They stayed for a little while and even treated me to lunch! Score 3. I received a text message from a wonderful Aunt whom I had not heard from in a long time as well as a text from a sister I thought was angry at me. Both wishing me a wonderful day. Score 4. I also received a phone call from an awesome niece (8 yrs old) who sang out a rendition of Happy Birthday to me. Score 5. Finally, to close my wonderful day, I have a very loving DH who sent me text messages all day reminding me of how special his birthday woman is. Score 6.

As you can tell my birthday was just great! Oh, one more thing I got a chef collection salt and pepper shaker pair.....*drumroll*.....and a ROKU!!!! :) :) :)

Perfect day!

Discovery of a Mystery!

I've got to share this with you just in case you don't know about it.  There is this store online called GraveyardMall that sells odds and ends. I read about it once while looking through a blog email. At the time they had a sale going on an item called Mystery Box. I passed it up and by the end of that same night it sold out. Of course, that it sold out so fast made me wonder...hmm...so I signed up for their newsletter and soon forgot about it. About 2 weeks ago I was checking email and ran across a GraveyardMall Newsletter that said they were offering the Mystery Box again. This time I figured why not? I mean, it is guaranteed! Oh, did I forget to mention that? Heh, yes, they guarantee that if you are not happy with what they send then you can return it and get your money back (shipping costs payed by them). Can't really go wrong there, right? So, forward to two days ago, I finally received my box and...wow! For the price I payed I definitely got my money's worth. There was a wide range of gifts in my box from decorations to electronic gadgets to kitchenware. They packed that puppy tight! When you order they tell you to give them information about you and your family so that they can customize the items to what you like. The items are by no means extremely expensive. Let's be real here folks. They'd loose their a$$ if they did that BUT the items are WELL WORTH the money spent. I can hardly wait for another Mystery Box to become available for order!
