Gnome Party!

This post is inspired by my bestie since kindergarten, Stefanie. She loves gnomes and has a small of collection of lawn gnomes that have graced any front yard she has ever had. When I saw this Gnome Themed Birthday Party I just knew that I had to share it with her, and you guys of course (in case there are any closeted gnome fans amongst you).

While this may have been a party for a four year old, I think it could still be adult appropriate. I’m 27 and I would have loved to be a guest.

I have good friends

A couple of days ago, I came home to find an unexpected package sitting on my porch. A quick look at the return address let me know that it was from my college roommate Rebecca. She’s like a super woman, she is four months pregnant and in the process of moving from Florida to North Carolina, yet she still finds time to send me a surprise gift.

It was an end of tax season relaxation gift box, with a adorable kitty mug, some rich hot cocoa mix and a recipe for making tea and chocolate bark. Needless to say I was delighted, and even more amazingly it arrived after I had an exceptionally rough day at the office. It was one of those days that reminded me exactly how lucky I am.
