Look What I've Got!

A little package arrived for me on Saturday morning from Kristina over at A Perfect Dose of LifeLook!



This is the first time I have received anything from one of my gorgeous bloggy friends, so I was really thrilled! (Actually, that's NOT quite true, as I did receive an expensive Wrinkle Filler from my lovely friend Carol over at Facing50 with Humour a little while ago.  She had obviously looked at my photos and thought that I really needed it.  Hee Hee!).  The first little goody above is a beautifully crafted magnet, and look what Kristina has put on it - it's the little saying from the top of my Blog! How cute is that?!  Thank you so much Kristina. I was really thrilled with your gift.  The second little gift is a completely natural Peppermint Lip Balm - just right for ageing lips, me thinks!!

Also on Saturday, hubby and I went shopping for a wedding suit for himself.  Now, some of my 'older' Followers might just remember that I wasn't particularly looking forward to this little outing - BUT, it went remarkably well.  He was sort of moaning a bit about the first one I picked out, so I wandered around and then I found a really lovely suit with a lilac colour lining - all very swish.  The suit itself is charcoal in colour, and, lo and behold, the hubby loved it.  We then picked up a smart white shirt and purple tie and, hey presto, in about ten minutes he was all done and dusted.  I couldn't believe it!!  So it was then off for a coffee and a cream cake.




Do you see the cute cufflinks?!  Hubby was given those by our other beautiful daughter when she got married.

Love doesn't make the world go 'round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

Kristina is a very special lady and a credit to the blogging world. I'm happy to know that it's "mission accomplished" and that you and your hubby came to quick agreement on those snazzy threads for the wedding. Happy Monday to you, dear friend Thisisme!

Don't you just LOVE it when things work out as though they were meant to all along! Sometimes we stress unnecessarily ahead of time! So glad it all went so smoothly as it did in the case of finding your own outfit :)

Your hubby is going to look really dapper in that suit and tie and the cufflinks are ever so novel!

Lucky girl getting a surprise from your Bloggy friend ;) You've had a great start to your week!

Shady - hi dear friend! Yes, Kristina is lovely. It was she who did a whole post on me when I was feeling so poorly back earlier in the year. We are very lucky with our bloggy friends, aren't we?! Snazzy threads - haven't heard that expression for quite a while! I hope he won't be snazzier than moi!!! LOL!

Thisisme. said...

Desiree - yes, it is lovely when things come together really smoothly. Hope everything is alright over there with you and your adorable pups! Yes, it was a good start to my week indeed! Did you see what that Facing50 sent me thought - wrinke cream!!!! Eeeek!!

Anne in Oxfordshire - Woo Hoo!! I love that - it says everything, doesn't it?! Yes, I was so pleased that the shopping experience went well. That doesn't always happen when I'm in the shops with hubby, which I must admit is a very rare occasion! And we even had a cup of coffee and cream cake afterwards. Woo Hoo indeed!!

Odie - Yes, it was a lovely surprise to receive the gifts. Thank you for always taking the time to pop across and leave a comment. I do appreciate it!

Grammy Goodwill - Hallo! Thank you for visiting my little blog today and leaving a comment. Hopefully I might see you here again!

I was wondering how that adventure would turn out! I'm so happy that it went well and that he was pleased with the suit. It looks very handsome and the colors are wonderful. The cuff links are really a nice finishing touch! I have been away for a while and was delighted to see your new animated signature. I missed you while I was gone:)

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Hooray for the charcoal suit!!! He will be stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plus, I'm glad it was a quite painless shopping trip for him. I understand. I hate to shop, myself. :-)

~♥~

Thisisme. said...

kneesandpaws - and I missed you too! Have just been over on your blog and it looks as if you had a lovely break away in a heavenly place. Glad you liked my little animated signature!!

Aunt Amelia's Attic - yes, he will look very handsome! I know you've said before that you don't like to shop! Shame on you! Hee Hee! Hope all is well over there, and that it has finally stopped raining where you are.

I really like those cufflinks. (What a smart father of the bride he will be.)
As for your gifts well, I can't think of many other people who are as lovely as you.
XOXO
ps Thank you very much for the surprise mention. I'm sure you don't need wrinkle filler though.
