Surprise Box!

I received a wonderful decorated surprise package from my old friend S. We went to high school together and then we lived together for 3 years and she was in my wedding. She sent it as a late bday, happy, happy present. Inside the package were some familiar treats from the South including Golden Rule BBQ Sauce, Big Bob Gibson's BBQ White Sauce and Big Sky Bread chocolate chip cookies! I love all of this stuff and we actually made BBQ chicken on Sunday with the BBQ Sauces! S also was the one that tracked down my pink calendar I was looking for. Thanks! One of the things I loved about living with S, (besides the freezer full of her Mom's turkey tetrazzini she shared regularly and the fresh flowers she always put in my bathroom) was that she and another one of my friend have a business called Two Girls and a Glue Gun. They make hand painted plaques with cute quote on them. They are a small operation and sell to few local stores. Anyways, S was always on hand to paint me a last minute plaque for a birthday or baby gift. She also filled our house with cute plaques during the holidays. I told her I needed a "holiday set" and sure enough...here are some pictures of what else was inside my surprise box:

For Thanksgiving... And Easter...
And Birthdays...
And Year Round...(I already had this one)


And Halloween...
And Christmas (perfect for my new Yankee friends)...


And Mardis Gras...
She also sent Daisy a Daisy toy...more about this tomorrow!


My Golden Rule BBQ Sauce...mmm good!


My pink planner!
Big Sky Bread Chocolate Chip Cookies!


All my loot!!
Thanks again S for the fabulous treat. I miss you so much! Come visit us! Daisy says hi too and she has a special post later about her Daisy treat!
