Surprise Delivery & Thanks

25 Nov

Is there anything as fun as getting an unexpected package in the mail? It’s extra cool when there’s something uniquely “you” inside.

Last Friday, I received that kind of package. It totally made my day. And I still smile when I think about the Staples (office supply store) box that so completely masked what was inside.

What was it? Shoes! Not just any shoes…

Genuine leather frog shoes! How cool is that?

They’re very me, right?

A Real Fashion Statement

Unfortunately, they’re a bit small for my feet. I might be able to find a way to stretch them, we’ll have to see.

Aren’t they hysterical?

They’re actually from a dear lady who worked with Mike (aka Hubby) for many years. I knew there just had to be a story behind those shoes, and I was right. Here’s what she said when I asked…

My dear sister is always going outside the box when searching for presents. This one hit the jackpot, but I could not bring myself to venture out! You kept popping into my head, with your love of frogs. Enjoy them, laugh at them, or start a new story. They really are out there!

I was so touched that she thought of me. Thanks, Bridget! You’re awesome!

You know who else is awesome? You! My loyal followers.

It’s Thanksgiving Eve as I write this. Thanksgiving isn’t just about eating lots of food, it’s about being thankful, too. So I want to let you all know that I’m thankful for each and every one of you. Thanks for showing an interest in the pictures and stories I share. It means a lot to me. Really.

I hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving. And for those of you outside the US, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks again!

  1. How cool are those? They do look perfect for you. Hopefully you can stretch them a bit. Get them wet and wear them until they dry if you can, that will help.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mike. I hope you had a wonderful day.

  2. Aw shucks, ToadMama… Thank you for sharing your adventures, discoveries, and impressions. Without you and others doing just that, we’d all be stuck with nothing but cat videos for our online entertainment (blech–no thanks).

    I hope that you and yours had a great turkey day.

    Gobble-gobble!
