Sometimes they can surprise you! 

This morning the mailman brought a 
package to the door. 
Hmm, those items I ordered shouldn't be 
here until Wednesday. 
What's this??

A box from Illinois...
I know that address. 

To me and the hubby?? 

Wait to open it 
or dig in?!
Decisions Decisions. 

Bah, DH will understand
I hope...

My darling friend Mary Jane has sent us 
a travel package! 

There is a trip in our future and 
MJ wanted us to be prepared. 

Can you see the Dinky Dyes Canadian 
Maple Leaf scissors? How about the fob?
And on the back of it - 
It says,
Canada 2014

The passbook cover is amazing. 
It's too pretty for the TSA 
to touch. Somehow
I know they wouldn't 
appreciate the way I do.

And that photo album - 
Do you see the monogram 
with 25 in silver?

Until today I did
not have a travel
Ott Lamp.

I do now! 
My eyes thank you MJ!

And those snacks - 
I promise to share them
with DH. I promise!

But, if you look
closely - there is a 
spool of thread.
It's lip balm.
So cool! 
And tasty too. 

Mary Jane and Dave 
you two are the 

Thank you!
