Confessions Of A Bad Blogger Buddy

Okay I have some explaining to do. I got a few unexpected goodies in the mail this week. Of course, I then took a picture to show all of you. While I was browsing thru my computer file to post the pics, I came across this one. Seems I was gifted this awhile ago and never posted my thank you. I thought I had. But I went back and checked old posts and realized I hadn't. I think this came right around the time that Griffey went AWOL for a few days, then returned home the day before I went to NYC. Which may explain how it got lost in the shuffle. So I owe a big fat THANK YOU and AN APOLOGY to my Canadian blogger buddy, K1. Can you ever forgive me? She remembered my great love of all things margarita when she saw these and decided I needed some. Those Canadians sure know how to par-tay! We don't have this flavor in the states. I haven't made it yet by the way. I'm saving it for a special occasion. This weekend is our annual Bengals game for which I always make jello shots. Maybe I'll whip them up then. They'll be perfecto. Thanks again K1!

So as I was reading through my blog archives searching for the non-existent thank you post for my jello, I realized there was no thank you post for my October Secret Pal gift either. WTF?! Man, do I suck or what? Why do you guys even bother with me? LOL! So I went browsing for the pic that I took of my SP goodies. Well, guess what? There's no pic. But I distinctly remember taking it back in October. Somehow it got deleted and never was uploaded to the computer. Which in turn made me completely forget to post a thank you. I think maybe I've had too many margaritas lately or something. I've become quite scatterbrained and forgetful.

Because there was no pic, I had to go and dig the gifts out of that black hole of stuff that will someday be Mia's room. Let me tell you....that was no easy feat. But here's the new pic. My SP sent red gifts in honor of Canada Day. Seems she's a Canuck, too. Unfortunately, I long ago ate the Halloween candy she sent. So you'll just have to take my word for it that it was good. Love the pj's. A girl can never have too many pairs of penguin jammies. And someday Mia will wear her Canada shirt as a reminder not only of my gracious SP but for all of our north of the border friends.

Thanks again Secret Pal and many apologies! I can't wait to find out who you are next month! Oh...and since I was going from memory (which I think I've already proven sucks lately) feel free to correct me in the comments section if there is another part of the October gift that I've forgotten to stick in the photo.

This was a surprise from another Canadian blogger buddy, Doris. (They love me up there. What can I say? LOL!) Cute little note cards. They suit me, dontcha think? And look at those corker bows! I love them! I can't wait for the day that I'll be able to make some Mia pigtails. Thanks D!
You're not gonna believe this one. Take a look. A penguin birdhouse! I can honestly say, I've never seen one of these before. This came postmarked from Georgia. Thanks Jeter Mama! (I miss you, homegirl. And miss your blog.) Now I've got to figure out a place to hang this cute little thing. But maybe I should wait until springtime? Hmmmm... not sure.

So thanks again for all the gifties. I'm pretty sure I've done nothing worthwhile to deserve them. Especially since I forget to say thank you half the time. But rest assured I appreciate them. It always puts a smile on my face when I open a package. It makes me really grateful for all the wonderful friendships I've made through this blog. Thanks again friends!

sorry...I'll have to pass on the jell-o.
Sounds like you were guessing if the birdhouse came from me - there was a letter in box, did you not see it?
anyway, glad you like him.

You have been a bad blogging buddy lately, but it seems you are dearly loved from the great north.

I'm digging the margarita jello! That is something the USA should jump on the bandwagon and carry in the stores. I'd buy it.

Catherine said...

What great gifties! You are loved my many Special K...especially the foreigners up here! We have penguins for pets in our igloos, did ya know? LOL!! (Err...are penguins from the south pole? I get so confused!)

Seeing a penguin always makes me think of you..and smile!

Glad you're enjoying your many great gifties. Love the Canada shirt and skirt!

We actually do have that flavor in the states. I found some last Halloween at Target. It also comes in Pina Colada and Daquiri.

You are the cutest! I figured that Canada Post screwed up royally and never got it to you. I am happy that it did make it and that you will have it for the next time you make your infamous Jello shots. :)

Shannon said...

Oooh, margarita flavored jello sounds fun!! Do you spike it or use the regular water??? Inquiring minds want to know! =) What great gifties!

Just wanted to say, thanks for your kind words about Rosie. I figured everyone would guess and that was fine. I wanted to yell it from the rooftops!

OziMum said...

Fantastic Pressies! I especially like the Penguing Birdhouse!!! Tell me, do you think a bird is going to willingly fly into the belly of a penguin?!!!

Colleen said...
