And while it is not the big Lotto jackpot (wouldn't that have been sweet? It would be Blissdom11 for everyone!)
No, I won a give away over at Stacy's place.
It was a gift basket full of my favorites.
19 pounds worth
(according to FedEx)
Let's deconstruct it.
Back in the back is a Starbucks gift pack with coffee and a travel mug. I don't know how she knew it but I needed a new travel mug. JR has made off with mine. His first words upon seeing the new mug; "oh good, now I can switch off days." I don't think so, buddy. (my first words)
Off to the right is a Johnsonville gift set with sausage, cheese, crackers, cutting board and a knife. Once the guys got a look at that it was gone. All that is left is the cutting board, the knife, and some crumbs. I was hoping that would get me out of making dinner but no such luck.
In front of the Johnsonville stuff is a little package of coffee and some chocolates. I have absconded with those. They will be going to a safe place where only I know where they are. There maybe keys involved. And, little stolen moments.
Smack in the middle front is two stemless wine glasses. I'm uber happy about these. They turn my set of 4 to a set of 6. Really, a much better entertaining number. It also means that I can use a glass everyday without the pesky task of washing and still take Sundays off. Okay, so I never take Sundays off. I'll just have to find another glass. Wine tastes just as good in a water glass.
In front of those is a Black Cherry scented candle. Stacy thinks of everything. This gem came in handy after the guys ate all the cheese and meat. Enuf said.
That little white package on the left is Focaccia mix. That will be a weekend project.
Last but in my mind not least, 3 (count them, 3) bottles of homemade wine and 1 bottle of coffee liqueur. Added to my
overindulgence latest purchases my wine fridge is satisfyingly full. There is really very little more beautiful than a satisfyingly full wine fridge. Okay, maybe there is (sunsets, puppies, babies) but for me the full wine fridge is good. We've all got to take these little pleasures when we can.
While I was feeling all special and taunting you with my win the cat yakked up a massive pile of undigested cat food. On the carpet no less. Oh yeah! I feel special. I bet you want to be me.
Thank you Stacy! You are the best!
JR now thinks that blogging is not just a major time suck and that I would be better using my time paying more attention to him (HA!). See what he knows.
