I am so giddy right now. I just got off the phone from talking with my dad. I had to call and tell him how super happy I was with the box of goodies that he sent me for my birthday.
I only met my dad this year and even though he and his family are great and we have a ton in common, I didn’t expect anything more than a card for my birthday. When he sent me a message telling me to expect a box today I figured it was some small gesture, and I thought it was a sweet thing to do. When I found a HUGE box sitting in the chair when I got up, I was stunned. He sent me a totally awesome collection of goodies, and he knocked it out of the park. [smiles]
Those cards were in the box, and the button too. He actually found a Halloween Anniversary card for me and Eric . How cool is that? There was a little set of pen holders for our anniversary, sorry I forgot to snap a shot of those.
This is a real gator head that’s been taxidermied and sealed. How frikkin cool is that?! I thought it was resin at first, but it’s the real deal! he’s going to have a prominent place on top of my computer tower. I love him! He’s awesome!
Dad also sent flavored dark chocolates, which is so perfect, because I adore dark chocolate. I can’t wait to try them, especially the orange one. He knows I like ginger, as does he, so he sent these ginger sweet potato candies. I bet they’re going to be really good.
And this, this is wicked! It’s a deer skull, and it’s all aged with this cool lichen and stuff all over it. Sweet! Apparently dad had it for like a decade, and he actually parted with it and sent it to me. How awesome and sweet is that? This is getting displayed on the tallest bookcase behind the TV where everyone can see it. It’s so neat!
Oh, and I forgot to get a shot of the bacon salt! [laughs] He knows his girl, that’s for sure! It’s amazing that he paid so much attention and just nailed all these things. I love it all! and yeah, I am totally psyched that my dad gave me dead stuff and chocolate and bacon. I mean, that so rocks!
This is turning out to be such an awesome time for me for so many reasons. I haven’t been this happy in ages. everything else has been getting better, and now this, and my birthday is still coming, and there’s going to be anniversary sushi, life is getting pretty darn cool!
