but I'm still alive. The munchkin is in school. I'm still trying to find a circle of new friends to even come near to the group of ones I've left behind and desperately miss on a daily basis. I know it takes a while but ouch. We survived Christmas. We were going to host but MIL couldn't take any time off this year so we went to visit again. DS is 3 1/2, this was his 4th Christmas and we still haven't had one at home with him. Next year, we stay.
In any case, the real reason I FINALLY got back to this is that I just HAVE to share something with you. Last Monday night, I decided I needed to order myself a Sally Jean necklace. If you haven't seen these, take a half hour or so and dig around her site. Great, fun, snarky things there that I love. I actually stumbled onto the site a few years ago when doing some packaging research for MyM&M's and have checked back in every once and a while to see what's going on. For some reason, last week I was looking at Sally Jean's and decided that I needed to get some of her things for personal inspiration, AKA a kick in the pants. While the site said it would be 2-3wks to ship, the two pieces I ordered actually shipped a day or two later and were here waiting for me today when we got back from our trip. They could have been here Fri. for all I know. However, the thing that really got me was the packaging. The outer mailer was your typical small padded envelope bag. But get a load of what I found inside:
I just had to share.
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and your New Year is bright!
