Housewarming Gifts!

So, something I never thought of about buying a house - housewarming gifts! It means that I am behind on some thank yous. I received a really generous gifts from my managers at the ski slopes - a garbage can filled with cleaning supplies! It might not be fun stuff, but it is definitely necessary!

when I got home on Friday, my mom tells me she thinks there is a wedding invitation from Utah. But, the only person I know in Utah is already married....

Do you all know Carly? I am so glad that I do! I know her from a private discussion board, and I am so grateful that I do. She blogs about all kinds of stuff - the Utah link above is her latest venture. It's always entertaining to read.
Anyway. Back to the "wedding invitation". I open the envelope to find a housewarming gift, not an invitation!
Cute card, right? Even better - the patch on the front? It's PLANTABLE!! I can't wait! I already have an herb garden for my kitchen windowsill, but I figure my living room or office will need some green love. And then I'll be able to transfer it outside when I start a small garden plot! (of course, there was a sweet note inside from Carly, but I'm not sharing everything!)

And inside the card was this:

The pictures don't do it justice, this little notebook is so cute! And the quote is totally perfect for this point in my life - "He offered her the world. She said she had her own." I love it! It's way more stylish than the bulky steno notebook I've been carrying around. I'm trying to always be ready in case the bank or someone calls.

Thanks again Carly! I really appreciate it - it made my weekend happier! I can't wait to be able to plant it for my OWN HOUSE! :)

And when I got home last night (after a really rotten day) there was an envelope with my name all fancy. It hadn't been mailed, so I figured it was just something from my momma. Nope! It was from a teacher at her school! Missy is the aunt of one of my ex-boyfriends. The BF is long gone from my life, but I've kept in touch with Missy and such.... she was actually a reference when I applied for my job! Anyway, I opened it to find the cutest housewarming card and a Target gift card! I love Target, and I especially love it for house things.

I feel like I've been spoiled, and I haven't even moved in yet! It's great to feel loved :)

That is great! And how wonderful that you got something (one) good out of a past relationship!
