What's in the Mailbox?

I get lots of fun packages, and I thought I would share a couple of recent ones with you.

I bought found shirts for the girls and I.  They were for an adoption fundraiser.

Wet Ones!  Not just for me, but some to share, too.  I love passing out samples and coupons!  Don't worry, you can print a coupon, too.  I was really glad I had the travel pack in my purse on Halloween.  Katie had cotton candy for the first time, and it was all over her face and hands.

Children's Mucinex.  Here's one I hope we won't need to use, but hey, great to have on hand because you know when a cold strikes, the last thing you want to do is take sick kids to the store.  And lookie there!  A $2 coupon for you, as well!

I received a very special package from Cuts By Laser!  When I heard that my friend Jennifer was making custom wood cuts, I asked if she could do a map of China for me for a project I had in mind.  She sent me two, and even added some extras so I could see the neat things she's been making.  My project isn't finished yet, but you'll want to go check out her lovely Christmas ornaments.  She's offering free shipping on orders over $10 right now.

We got Baby Orajel Naturals, also from Smiley 360.  Luke has been drooling a ton and has his fingers in his mouth all the time, so I'm wondering if he's teething.  I like that it's not full of icky chemicals like the old formula was.  You can get a coupon for it, too.

Coming soon:  a fun photoshoot with Katie and some holiday dress ups!

Last week, we received a box with not one, not two, but THREE fun games from Hasbro!  Brianna immediately claimed Simon Swipe, and Eli has to wrestle it away from her to get a turn.

I love all the exciting mail that shows up at our house!

  1. AWESOME! I love fun mail like this... it totally makes my day.

    Thanks for sharing your mailbox treats!

    1. Back when my firstborn was little, UPS used to have a graphic of a package with a tied in a bow, and my son used to call it "the present truck." Now I'm disappointed when days go by and we don't get any visits from the present truck.

  2. So fun to get stuff in the mail. It's like Christmas. The found shirts are adorable.

    1. Thanks! I like them because they're not "in your face" adoption shirts, but the map background is a map of China. Subtle.
