Getting Post...

In my former years as a missionary for my church... I would get so excited over POST (which is what we called MAIL). Everyday we would look forward to the time when we would get to go to the box to see if there was post. Missionaries love mail. Its how we would connect with our family, our friends, boyfriends/girlfriends... it was the lifeline sometimes. Mail was awesome!!
Now that I am older and have a cell phone, text messaging, the internet, blogs, emails, facebook and all the other technological wonders of the world to connect with family and friends, post has gotten put aside. Which sucks... because I still love getting mail. The hubbs knows that it is MY responsibility to get the mail AND open it all. Now usually its all bills or propaganda which pretty much stinks because I still run to the mailbox everyday hoping to get a piece of mail (hint hint if anyone wants to send me a card). My grandma was really good about sending cards. When she passed, we actually found a box of cards in her home and some were already set aside for that months mail. She was awesome like that. Took the time to write a hand written note to tell you she loved you (ahhhh tear). Anyways- the point of this whole rambling was to say... I got post today (true I had to PAY FOR IT... but thats besides the point. Still there was fun packages in the mailbox when I got home. Look what I ordered.

Okay... so I have a mini obsession with charm packs and layer cakes and jelly rolls... but heck they are so much fun to get and play with. If you have never been over to Missouri Quilt Company they have this daily deal that I am a sucker for. Lke these charm packs are normally like $8.00- I got one for $3.00 and one for $7.00 I think). Plus they ship like super quick and have flat rate shipping. I pretty much love them. Its one of the first things I check on my phone from my bed when I wake up. That really just made me sound pathetic I know but I like to lay in bed after the second snooze button and read my favorite blogs (NieNie and Cjane), check the daily deal at Missouri Quilt Co. and then I kiss the hubbs and get out of bed. I love my life.

    What a neat story. Where did you get to be a missionary? One of my dear friends was born in Africa since her dad was a missionary.

  2. Hah! I totally relate. I LOVE getting mail too. :) My husband still calls me a "Post lover" lol.

    Thanks for the link to the "daily deal"! (I think. Might be deadly.) I love Nie and CJane too. :)

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog about my friend Sarah. How neat that you knew her! Did you know her husband Chris too? I hope you do make an Ireland flag quilt some day.

    So glad to connect!
