Gift Opening Aftermath

Yippee! Thanks for the support for opening the package NOW!! Green Butterfly, the gift giver also gave the green light, so it took me about a split second to tear that wrapper off! Once I did, I saw that the big box was stuffed to the brim with a bunch of goodies...all of them individually wrapped in tissue or paper.And each and every treat had a post-it note attached to it, with a funny little quip or reason why she thought of me for the particular gift(s).
Some of my favorite post-it notes:
-On the Trivia for the Toilet book: "Because light reading is always nice for you 'regular' folks".
-On the Cosmos Grow kit: "Too cheap to buy you live flowers. Grow 'em your damn self, hehe."
-On the snacks: "Because there's no such word as weight watchers on your birthday!"
-On the Pirates DVD Box: "E chewed the corner. Sorry!" More precious in my eye, GB!!

The girl is hilarious!

Dontcha all just love birthdays??

Here's the aftermath of the frenzied unwrapping. Cat was not included in the box. She was just extremely curious, as cats tend to be.
So tomorrow I turn 39. I proclaim till midnight, which is just 2.5 hours away, that I am still 38. I'm celebrating with an indulgent massage and English tea, then we're heading to the parentals for a small celebration with them.

Thanks GB! I love 'em! I've eaten 1/2 the box of Panda snacks, played a couple games of Simon Says (dude, it's harder than I remember!) and almost started to grow the flowers (they're in the kitchen).

Happy birthday again, Mad, because you have a full week to celebrate, of course (as does Donica!).

I LOVE the box of loot, as zann said. It reminded me of the box my daughter's future MIL sent me for my birthday in June. Totally full of things that were so ME. Don't you love it when that happens!!! :)
