:: A Sweet Surprise ::

Happy Friday ~ Happy Weekend friends!! My weekend started off wonderful. First of all my hubby had the day off. He got his new surround sound all set up in the basement. He is like a child with a new toy. I know he will have fun with it and I am sure he will be enjoying a LOUD manly action movie tonight!  :)

Next we went and worked out together at the YMCA. So fun, we stopped off afterwards for some healthy smoothies. Then we went to pick up all of the kiddos from school. We got home and THIS was on my doorstep!


It is from my dear friend Kathy. Handmade by her, what a very special gift. I will cherish it FOREVER! Kathy and I have never met but we have built a wonderful friendship across the miles. She is one of the most kind and genuine people I know. I am so blessed to call her my friend.

Here are a few more photos. I will post more photos when I find its permanent, special place in our home. These photos are straight off of the mail truck and out of the box, I was so excited to share I couldn’t wait!


Love the heart~
