Excellent Mail Day

So yesterday I listed off some of the things that make me happy. I left a big one off the list: MAIL! And I don’t mean bills or credit card offers or catalogs. I mean something hand addressed to me or a package with something new inside. When those two things combine, I am doubly happy! Imagine my surprise when checking the mail and finding out I had not one, but TWO little packages waiting for me.

First off, a few weeks back Target was running a promotion for their beauty department. If you entered your name and mailing information they promised to send you a sample pack with $25 worth of savings and other goodies. Free stuff? Sign me up!


Oh, let’s see what’s in there!


Look at that cute little bag it all came in too! I mean, to mean it was worth it just for the travel lotion and new chapstick!

Up next was a package that combines BOTH of my favorite mail elements: something fun/new and hand addressed to me! One of my favorite DC bloggers, Gwen, had a delicious Dove chocolate giveaway a few weeks ago and I won! (Okay, so this combines mail and winning, so it’s a double win. Or, is that bi-winning?Smile)

IMG_0878I was pretty excited to tear into the box and sample these little treats! They are Chocolate Chipotle-Spiced Caramel Nut Clusters and, yes they are as delicious as they sound!

IMG_0883Buddy was pretty excited too!

YUM! Dove chocolate is one of my favs and the yummy chipotle salt was such a fun addition. If you’re interested in acquiring some chocolates like mine (or another delicious varieties) you can get in touch with Gwen’s Mom Linda who is an independent chocolatier with Dove Chocolate Discoveries.

Buddy recommends it!
(Please note that my sweet little dog did not actually consume chocolates. But man, did he want to!)

What’s your favorite thing to get in the mail?

  1. I absolutely love getting hand addressed cards and packages from friends and family from home!

  2. YEAH! I’m so glad you guys like them and OF course that they are Buddy approved. Can’t wait to share the pics with my mom! Enjoy! Xoxox

  3. I didn’t know you had a fancy blog, lady! And to find it on such an amazing day of mail and happiness!!!
    I hope things are well with you 🙂

  4. I adore all things snail-mail, unless they are bills…but my fave thing would be when Ryan was overseas in Iraq, and I would get a letter. It was relief, support, sentiment, and airlifted L.O.V.E. We still write love notes to each other now, and send them through the mail, even though we could hand them to each other in the apartment!!
