Happy Day!!

There is nothing better than starting off your day with Starbucks, Barnes and Nobles, and Hobby Lobby (in my opinion anyway). That's just what I did and since the hubby is on vacation, he got dragged along too :) I enjoyed this amazingly tasty chocolate bundt cake with a Dark Cherry Mocha, my new favorite!!

Then I spotted the cutest tea set ever!!!!

It took all of my will power not to buy this teapot, uh hello cuteness!!!! It was either cute new stationary and notecards or teapot... the latter won :)

I was also super excited when my Elsie painting arrived, OH EM GEE I love it. It came in perfect condition!!!

I have it hung in my dining room, my 2nd favorite place in the house! Now I can eat dinner and stare at it!

I also won a super awesome giveaway from Jana over at My Art of Life. I love everything and was super ecstatic to finally own a pair of nerd glasses!! wahooo!!

Me and Andrea had a craft swap and look what I was surprised with!!! I am absolutely in love with it she spoiled me sooo much and I squealed when I opened up my package, she spoiled me with a ton of pandaness and chocolate, which I have been devouring!!

The Panda hoops turned out AMAZING and everything was PERFECT!!! Thanks so much Andrea!!!

Becky also sent me this super cute Ipad notepad and super cute postcard, thanks so much Becky!!

Tiffany also surprised me with this gorgeous flip-flop necklace form Hawaii!! Isn't it pretty??? We have been Happy Mail partners since January and love surprising each other with cute stuff!! Thanks Tiffany!!

I also got cute cards from my Happy Mail partners, panda and redhead doodle is AMAZING, drawn by Gina :) LOVE it!!

This week has been a pretty rough week for me, so it was nice to have a super happy day to make up for it :) Ok, I'm off to FINALLY package my craft swap plushies, They have been done for over a week and they still aren't packaged.
