Christmas in February

Ok, so there’s no such thing as Christmas in February, but it felt like Christmas today when I got home and discovered 2 surprises – 1. A surprise from hubby and 2. A delivery that I knew was coming, but I didn’t know when.

Hubby’s Surprise


Hubby set up a little surprise for me, which I saw when I got home from work today (while hubby was out and about).


Inside was the camera bag/kit I’ve been wanting for my camera since Christmas. I even get a new battery with the bag, so I don’t have to worry about missing any shots due to an uncharged battery. Plus, I now have a good way to protect my camera when we’re traveling. Yippee! Thanks babe!

A Coast-to-Coast Swap


I also got a special delivery all the way from the other side of the country from most-awesome blogger Kate from Cooking with Kate.


The contents of the box, besides the vanilla bean syrup which inspired the whole thing, were a surprise, so I had a blast oohing and aahing over all the goodies I kept pulling out.

Inside the box:


Oatmeal & Cranberry Cookie Mix – all yummy-sounding ingredients!


The famous vanilla-bean syrup. Yum!


Whole-grain pancake mix – hope hubby doesn’t see that “whole grain” part.


Chocolate Tea! Who ever heard of such a thing? I dunno, but I can’t wait to try it!


Pomegranate white tea – another goodie that I’m sure to enjoy for a long time. Pom-flavored stuff is so good


And I even got an adorable card!



I totally forgot to add these Perfect 10 Western bagels last night because they were in the fridge when I started shooting photos. How could I forget these?!

Thank you soooo much Kate! I am gathering goodies for yours and hope to send it out asap! 🙂

  1. What a lovely day you must have had with two parcels! I've had the pomegranate white tea and it is really lovely, my SIL brought some at Christmas. Will be interested to see what you think of the chocolate tea – sounds very strange!
