mail call~

My mailbox has been happy the last few days!!!

Irene sent a postcard from her vacation in Greece on a beautiful Island! I have that in my bible and love looking at that picture!

Jennie Boo sent a postcard from her vacation with her hubby, she is so thoughtful!

Sheryl & Nancy send sympathy cards, thank you both for thinking of us and sending those thoughts.

Nancy sent some goodmail the other day! I had to laugh when I opened the envelope to find a ‘big hunk’!!! I’ve never had a big hunk (well unless you count Matt…), and the prettiest, girliest stationary ever. I loved it!

Tricia sent a cute little notebook & pen (I immediately put that notebook to use Tricia and it’s in my purse!) She also sent the sweetest note and stickers and stuff. Such fun mail!

I won Haley‘s giveaway and it arrived! What a fun box to get! Thanks Haley.

Then today I went out to the mailbox and there was a package from Sheryl! I was very surprised. Wanna know what she sent? The box of candy was wrapped with “the pettigrews” written on it… you really think I’m going to share? LOL… you’re right, I will!

Thank you all for making me smile!

thursday stuff~

Had lunch with my friend Melody today… I told her we should take a pic for the ‘blog’ but we forgot until she was getting out of my car and into hers… she suggested we could take time to do it… but it was an ‘ugly’ day for me so I decided to skip it this time. We ate at panera (don’t worry Jenny… I had a cup of broccoli soup and a sour dough roll). It was fun to visit with her and my whole point in driving to town was that I needed to run to the bank. I drove away from eating and got several miles towards home only to realize I didn’t go to the bank!!! I turned around and went back, and they were slower than usual. I had to be home by 1p.m. so Amanda could leave for an outing to White water… Anyway, I made it.

I got the coolest thing in the mail today!!! It was from my secret mailer! This is one of the groups that have branched off of the good mail girls. I love good mail. I got some cool pop rocks from Chele. Me and Amanda shared them! I haven’t had pop rocks in so long! I also recieved the cutest stickers and sweet card from a bloggy friend “Tori.” Thanks Tori! Linda (Ribbon Rock Star) mailed me a couple of the sweetest clips ever, I put one in izzy’s hair as soon as I opened them. Thanks Linda! and Melissa sent me a great recipe too! But today I found this on my front porch!:

Isn’t this just so cute? Thanks secret mailer, you’re awesome!

I’ve mentioned the huge amount of rain and that my ivy is finally growing up the tree like I’ve always wanted so I took a pic today before Amanda ran off with her camera (mine is broken and I’m getting another soon… hopefully).

And finally Izzy’s new stroller came. It is huge, too big in my opinion but it came nonetheless… We always say we will use it until Izzy doesn’t need it and pass it along to another somebody… I guess that other somebody will be a big girl who needs a big pink stroller :o)… Here is the pic as it looks now. We got this thinking it would be lighter getting it in and out of my suburban, but it has to be disassembled to transport and that metal part is quite heavy. A blessing was that my fellow ND parent buddy Dawn from Colorado has a light stroller that her son can’t use now so she is shipping it to me. Yeah Dawn!!! for those quick trips in the store you know? We’ll be set!

Here’s how it looks on the website (these things are like $6K, crazy huh???) You can see Izzy’s is raspberry rather than the red shown…That’s all I have today, well all I have time for. Gotta get Izzy fed and then hit my list! Have a great Thursday!!! I’ll leave you with a pic I found while downloading these pics off the camera (amanda’s camera) it is her with her new friend T…

I just got the mail!

I got some good mail from Annie (not myself, of course, this annie!).

She sent some black toile stationary, how did she know that I love love love black toile???
and a sweet laura ashley notebook! I love laura ashley designs. just perfect.

thanks Annie.


I got the earrings I ordered from Now I have to decide if I give them to Matt’s mom tomorrow (yep, they are coming for belated mother’s day) or if I run to town and buy her something else and keep them, because you know I do collect believe things, right????

(isn’t bailey a great hand model, and how sweet that he didn’t even question why I suddenly take pictures of all kinds of things and run to the laptop)

What do you think I should do?

Got some good mail today!
Thanks Angel for an envelope full of fun!

There was a sweet note, address labels, a folded heart, instructions on how to make a folded animal with paper, feathers, raffia, a notepad…so creative and so cute.

The good mail girls rock.
I also mailed out several packages today, this is so much fun.
