These babies are Heavenly...my hubbin bought them after MANY a dropped hint to him and most importantly the "girls"...b/c I can ALWAYS count on those two darlings to keep hubbin on the straight and narrow of the "perfect" gift giving path...yes...they never steer him wrong!!
I wore these our entire road trip to & from Colorado...YES every gas station, truck stop, diner, and more, you name it, I was probably wearing THESE little babies on my tootsies...b/c they are so darn comfortable they are almost sinful...AND they kept my toes ubber warm. In fact we stopped in a little diner in a precious town in Kansas...I think the town was Goodson, KS (I have pics for a later date on this sweet town)...we walked into a diner where we saw a cute little girl of probably 8 or 9....folks, you should have seen the look on her face! I think she must have thought I was a bit "off" or something...b/c she looked at me as if to say...."what the *^%#@*^ does that women have on her feet?"...and folks I don't think she was EVEN old enough to know what *^%#@*^ meant....I thought it rather funny b/c you know how it is when you are traveling...you MUST be comfortable...at any cost...and I just figured as I always do...these people will NEVER see me again...I wish I could relax like that ALL the time! Funny how you think like that when traveling...I can get by with NO makeup, crazy shoes...and disheveled hair...and it never bothers me...but get me home...no way!
This is what my children gave me...I LOVE IT!! It is something I have wanted for a very long time...but obviously did not go on and on enough about over the last few years!!...so this year...I made sure I told my "girls" that I have ALWAYS wanted one of these...thinking and praying maybe lovin hubbin' would purchase it for me...well, to my surprise...my girls and guys bought it for me and had it monogrammed with my initials...it fits perfectly ( I know the girls went to great lengths to make sure it did). I love this ring...but I love what it symbolizes more...and that is the LOVE OF and FOR my children...I wear this ring all the time...looking at it reminds me how wonderful my life is...and what amazing children I have...all four of them...two by birth and two by marriage...I am blessed beyond words with all of them!!
This is one of the most unique gifts I received...my daughter-in-law found them through some type of service??? and she sent them a picture of my sweet "Maggie"...she downloaded it from this very site...and sent off for these...she knows how crazy I am for this girl YES!!!
These are STAMPS...you can bet I WILL NOT be sending any of these off with bills...I will save them for special occasions and friends....I just think these are the coolest idea for stamps... I learned about these AFTER we sent daughters wedding invitations out (but had totally forgotten about it...it was such a neat surprise to receive these as a gift...I would not have thought of this in a hundred years...love them!!!)...I learned of them while the gal at the post office in the midst of hand stamping each of our invitations asked me if I knew about the service that would make pictures into stamps...that was a pure V-8 moment!! So gals...if any of you have a wedding coming up...snap a picture of the prospective couple...and buy some of these stamps...YES they are more expensive than the nominal (cough, cough) 41cents the post office charges...but aren't they worth it??? My DIL is using these to put on bridal shower invitations she is sending out for a friend...well, not THESE...but picture stamps with the prospective bride and groom...too cute!!
Hope all of your Christmas dreams came true...I know mine did...NOW back to reality...cleaning, organizing, purging and getting back into shape...whew...I'm just tired thinking about all I have to do....
Blessings to my new friends of 08'....striving to feel good....look good...and be good in 08...Hmmmmm...this could be a tough year for that!
