Receiving a box in the mail the other didn't surprise me since I was waiting for several different packages to arrive. Receiving a box from my sister though, did surprise me. I sent her a 'What the heck?' text and she said to go ahead and open it. It was a Happy Spring box. And let me tell ya, I was laughing and cheering all the way through this!
Look at all those fun things!!
Let's take a closer look at what 'pants' sent me.
A couple of fun Easter-y magazines.
I laughed so hard when I saw this. Remember my Skylanders game obsession back around the holidays and earlier this year? Well in that game there is a card game the characters play, called Skystones. I'd been aware that some cereal boxes were featuring a version of that game but I'd never gotten any. I've also phased our of Skylanders lately but I've felt the urge coming back to me as I've heard about collectible Easter characters. So now, not only can I play Skystones, but I've got coupons for some Skylanders goodies as well!
A magnet photo of my nephew/godson Julius, who has apparently started drinking coffee in a big way. LOL
Some Easter yummies! The cakes are long gone but the KitKat is waiting for my Easter basket.
More Easter yummies. It's funny, because hubby went grocery shopping with me this morning and while we were in the Easter candy aisle I paused to consider chocolate bunnies. He said not to get him one. I said everyone needs a chocolate bunny at Easter. He pointed out that he hadn't eaten his for the past how ever many years. Then I realized that I don't think the boys have either. Well what a bunch of poo! So I said, "Well, good thing I got that gold bunny from Sheri."
I also had a good laugh when I saw these Archway lemon cookies. I don't know if I posted anything here on the blog about the two packages of Archway cookies I'd gotten from Julie . . . ? I don't remember if my sister and I had been talking about that . . . ? But here is another box of those delicious, soft, lemon cookies! And a package of Vanilla Caramel coffee creamer/flavor, so I can continue my struggle to learn to like coffee.
My sister, who was my biggest customer when I was making goat milk soap, knows I've gotten lazy and gone back to commercial body washes. Looking forward to trying this coconut scrub! We actually have this in bar soap form too.
She knows I enjoy the Glade candles too! Perfect timing because we're just about out of the non-fall/winter scented candles and will have to start going through older candles soon. I've been trying not to buy new ones until we get through some of the old stuff that's been cluttering the candle cabinet. Now we'll put that chore off a bit longer while enjoying this Target exclusive Honeybee Rhythm scent.
She also sent some tarts because, well, you know I love tarts. Lemon Chiffon? Yes, please! And tulips are probably my favorite flower so some Frosted Tulips scented wax is okay too. I'm not a big floral fan but hubby will enjoy that one. Actually, it's not too bad. I've seen the Tuscany brand before but can't remember where. It might be the holiday ones that Walmart has, like with the Halloween themed warmers. Or maybe it's what I see at Menards? I know I've seen the brand but don't know if I've actually tried them.
Sunflower seeds! Last summer I developed a love for sunflowers for early-fall decorating. Not sure where I'll plant these yet but I'm really looking forward to seeing if I can grow some.
The bunny mug is cute, but my favorite out of everything in the box is probably the two bunny plates. Of course they are Vikings colors (wOOt!) but even if they weren't, I think I'd still love them. I was just saying recently that my Easter decoration tastes have changed and I wanted something besides cute stuffed bunnies. I need to find some small plate display stands and put these somewhere as Easter deco. Love them!
Thank you very much, Pants Who Likes Tacos!
