Much Needed Thank You's

First to my Secret Pal. No matter how long it takes me to say
thank you to her, she just keeps sending stuff. I'm grateful for that. And for her patience with me. I truly am one of the world's worst procrastinators. So thank you SP for the wonderful gifts this month and for putting up with me. Who knew when we signed on for this we'd still be sending stuff over a year later? But it's a wonderful story to tell our girls someday.

The little chocolate ladybugs came at the exact right moment. Sadly, they were quickly devoured by the PMS monster. LOL!
I love the piggie ensemble. Too cute! And these are my first baby spoons. They're just so little..... smile.
Next to the I-Con, who included me in her little duckie extravaganza. I've never had the girls examined. Well, not by a licensed doctor anyway. (wink wink) I guess I am now of the age where I need to schedule my first appointment to squoosh them into that machine. But in all seriousness, women need to be more aware of breast cancer and how beneficial it can be to catch it early. So go get a mammogram, ladies!
This was waiting in my stack of mail when I came home from vacation a couple weeks ago. Gotta love anything penguin related. This is an adorable little board book for my girlie and some book marks for momma. Thanks for thinking of me, Kris!
This showed up yesterday from the wild and crazy Heather. She knew I was feeling blue and sent me a little pick me up. It was almost too pretty to unwrap.
Look at this cute little key chain. That's my girl's name. Sweet!
It's now the new home for my car keys.
I adore this. It made me laugh out loud when I opened it. First, it's my most favorite colors. Second, the saying was just too damn funny. Anyone who knows me is aware of my margarita hobby. LOL! So this is perfect. I absolutely love it. And you made me cry with that card, girl. Thanks so much for brightening my day.
Thanks to everyone who commented on the post below, sent e-mails or called. It's comforting to know I'm not alone in these feelings. I'm grateful for the support. And don't worry. I'll be okay. We all hit the skids occasionally. That's all this was. I'm sure there will be more as I continue to wait. But I won't ever give up. Quitting is not an option for me. I'll keep waiting until China calls. Cuz that's where my daughter is.

I'll get my shit together soon. Cuz I can't stand to be depressed and feeling sorry for myself. Just not my cup of tea. So this won't last long. I'm working on pulling it together. And will be back to the Ms Sunshiney Pants that you all know and love real soon. Promise.

Your daughter will love that Sandra Boyton book. For some reason, she's a total hit with kids!

Great stuff! LOVE that bib! I'm starting to come out my funk too but I'm sure it won't be my last one on this crazy ride. Hope your having a good weekend.

Shannon said...

Well, not Ms. Sunshiney Pants but close, ok?! Love the goodies! Can't we wait a *few* more years before getting "smooshed"??? I thought it was getting it done "by hand" by the Dr? Yes, I saw your wink-wink, and it should be the Dr.! =)

Looks like you were on the minds of more than one this past week! Love the Boyton book and the pig themed goodies!

I guess I don't have to tell you that I knew you'd love that bib - it screamed out to me when I saw it...lol. And the Mia key chain - that's so you can see her name everywhere you go :) And the card - I know we don't all stay in the darkness, but trust me I know what it's like to be there, even if it's a brief stay. So I wanted to let you know that I love ya girlie, and we'll all get there sooner or later :)

And hey, while we wait, we can drink! LOL! This is a very good thing... ;)

HUGS!!!!!!
Head :P

You are definitely loved by many. Love the stuff especially the Boynton book. Her books are a hit with my son and I even have one of them memorized I read it so many time!!!

I'm right there with you. I'm working on getting my sh*t together too. Can't stay in a funk forever.

Lovin' the bib.

Yeah, we're in it for the long haul. Nothing will stop me from the quest for my kiddo. Time will go by no matter what we're doing, so wait I will.
