When Pam from Flowers and Frills posted about getting some Swedish Fish in her swap box, I commented that I'd never had any and was dying to try some, but couldn't find any where I live. She responded and generously offered to send me some!
I wanted to try them so badly that I took her up on her offer without any hesitation whatsoever. I mean, I'd been hearing about how amazing Swedish Fish were around every Internet corner, and I'm not one to miss out on a tasty treat craze if I can help it.
My little package arrived on Saturday, and within minutes my house full of people were having a fish eating party around my kitchen table. I had to grab my camera and snap this picture before they were all gone!
Oh, man, they were GOOD. Thank you, Pam, for sending those my way!!!
Later that day, I descended on Mel from Mel, A Dramatic Mommy.
She had posted about some books she wanted to sell and asked if anyone had any advice on using Craigslist or Amazon.com. Knowing that we were neighbors, I swooped in and asked her if I could have a go at them first.
She very kindly said yes, AND let me go to her house! I went through her box of books like a giddy little girl, and pulled out 22 to take home and make mine.
Here's my book booty (you can see my "work station" in the background!). I feel a little bad that I got them for such a song. It's practically stealing considering the price she asked for them.
Mel is the first person from the blogging community that I've met in person! It was so much fun to talk with her face to face.
Thank you, Mel, for letting me grab all of those books!
I think I'm set for a good two years with this new stash and all the books I got at the used book sale. Now I just need to find the time to read. Something's gotta go, and it's not blogging. Cable? The kid? Maybe I'll start with sleep.
