Christmas In September

Yippee! Look at me. Pam at Frippery( nominated me for another award. Thanks so much Pam. If you get to read Pam's blog you will get hooked. Her use of the written word is lyrical. She really needs to write a novel or short story.
Then, I go to the mailbox and pull out this package. I love packages in the mailbox even if they are toothpaste samples. There's just something about tearing into a package with my name on it,(btw, my first name just happens to be Occupant) and finding out what surprise is waiting for me. And what this package held just beats feminine hygiene products all the away around. Laurie from the 2 Chippys sent me a one of a kind, repurposed Chippy necklace, beautifully presented with a cute, cute card. Needless to say, I am over the moon!
Now you may think, can her day get any better? Well, yes it can because The 2 Chippys ( nominated me for an award also. Yea for me. It's Christmas in September. And lookie, lookie, Laurie told me how to get that big ol' heart on my post. I am just one happy, chubby lady.
I got awards, I got presents and I learned something new. Since I am feeling so special right now, I think I shall go take a shower, do my hair and allow Cat Daddy to take me to dinner. And I'll end by saying, I nominate everybody because I heart everyone today. You know, I'm going to change my mind and nominate one special person, Jenn at The Apiary( She's my baby daughter and probably my best friend in the whole wide world. Everyone should be so lucky to have such a playmate. See, Christmas in September.
