I got mail!

I'm not sure which holiday swaps are my favorite for sure.. but I think it might be easter! well maybe christmas.. no it must be halloween.. valentines? no.. right at this moment, it has to be EASTER!

I Joined Cerri's swap from littlepinkstudio. She hosted an easter basket swap. And she gave me a brand new friend for a partner, Kim from musings by Kim! I am thrilled to have a wonderful new blogger pal who loves the same things as I do! She sent me the sweetest package with these goodies from these first 4 pictures! I love everything. check out this little chickie below! isnt she the sweetest little thing? thank you Kim and looking forward to a great new blogger friendship! I did another swap that was Sandys easter tag swap and I had tamera from tameras stone fence cottage. And wow!! she sent me a huge box FULL of stuff!.
vintage old doilies table covers!

she made this CUTE tag!
And we wanted to do send an extra ornie of some sort so she suggested something patriotic and she made me this wonderful paperclay eagle that she made! he will be standing by patiently waiting for his turn to shine in june and july!
Tamera also sent me a huge baggie full of bits and bobs.. I can not begin to tell you or show you whats in the bag.. but believe me there is alot! I've already used a couple pieces from the bag!
And if all of that wasnt enough.. look at the books! She girl went bonkers spoiling me. thank you so much Tamera!! geez.. i sent hardly anything in comparison. i hope she didnt feel slighted!

OK.. I finally remembered what we had to do today and thats that we are going out to dinner with Roberts future inlaws. we have not met them before. Im always a little nervous about draggin my hubby out to stuff like this, because he really isnt that social and I'm always a little afraid of what he might say. i really dont want these people to be worried about the family this girl will be marrying into!

so, before dinner which isnt until 7:00 tonight, I have to get our taxes finished and I have to go do a little more easter shopping. I shopped all day yesterday with bethany, torry and baby torry pie. bethanys afraid torry is going to grow up thinking thats his real name! heehee!

we had his pic taken with the easter bunny yesterday! I'll post the pics another day.. so cute though!

ok.. off I go to see how much we will owe uncle sam... I'm clenching my teeth as I say this.. because quite honestly it pisses me off.. but I will not use my blog to bash our government.. no I wont..

happy sunday everyone!!

Oh, my Viv. You had major Easter there! Don't you just love swaps? It is like Christmas all year round with things you love!!!! That chickie is adorable and I love the little piece of linen with a bird on it!

Hope Uncle Sam wasn't too bad to you.We got money back for the first time in ages...both not working. Good or bad? I am not sure!
