I love getting mail. Let’s face it, it’s just like Christmas every time you go to the mailbox. What will be inside? Will there be presents?
Okay, can you tell that is just a tad bit of a stretch? There are usually lots of bills that need paying and junk mail that needs to sit on the kitchen table for three weeks before it finds its way to the trash. (oh wait- am I the only one that lets junk mail overstay its welcome in my home?!) There are RARE occasions where going to the mailbox is JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS! It is the best thing ever to open the mail box and see something other than bills inside the mailbox. I have been the luckiest girl ever ever recently!
Mailbox gifts twice in one week!
I don’t know what was in the air over here at Spinach and Sprinkles but I got positive news from the doctor, received chocolate from Chocolate Covered Katie, and a box full of goodies from Erica at ‘For the Sake of Cake’! ….Karma must have known that it owed me big time for all that it has put me though— and boy, oh, boy did it do its best to make up for it!!! I was having a pretty bummer time when I found out that I won these two giveaways within a few hours of each other and it totally brightened my day!
Inside my box from Katie:
A box of Endangered Species Chocolate will brighten anyone’s day- especially mine! I got the chance to check out their company’s mission and why they have adorable pictures of animals on their chocolate- “Endangered Species Chocolate is a mission-driven company that is passionate about chocolate and the environment. We are fully committed to providing premium, all-natural, ethically traded, naturally shade grown chocolate products. Endangered Species Chocolate confirms that all beans used in its products are purchased from family-owned properties where the income benefits the community. 10% of our net profits aredonated to fund species and habitat conservation efforts. Savor chocolate. Save our planet.” Too cool! For real- chocolate I can feel good about buying AND eating. It is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!! (don’t worry you won’t be so jealous later on…)
Inside my box from Erica:
Erica had a giveaway that was packed to the brim with all of her favorite things (mostly from Trader Joe’s ::squeal of joy:: ) and she threw in a few other amazingly sweet things in the box too: a super sweet card and SPRINKLES! How on earth did she know I love sprinkles???? I will have to do a whole other post on the amazingness that is the contents of this box. It is love at first sight! It was lust and now that I’ve had a bite or two (or ten) it has transformed into love! Thank you, Erica!
Inside Julie’s Box (to one of you):
I have been so lucky, I have decided to pay it forward! ….I plan on putting together a box full of my favorite things and sending it to one of you. It will have some Endangered Species Chocolate in it too! Let’s cross our fingers that I get this giveaway underway by next Friday for sure. I know that is quite the teaser, I am so mean! Like all of you, I’m swamped. The contents are not 100% decided upon… it will be GREAT though, that’s a promise! You’re going to want to stick around for what is coming in this box!
