First off, big big big big thanks to my Lime & Violet Secret Sibling Pal - I think I know who she is (am I right, Melissa?) The box absolutely rocked!

There's a ton of sweets (all of which I have been craving! Couldn't find them on the trip!): jelly jolly ranchers, mike & ikes, peach rings, Sponge Bob Crabby Patties, cream savers, pralines...drool! Then there's a great selection of yarn - purple and white cotton (I'm big into the Mason Dixon baby bib's / burp cloths and other baby things now - perfect colors!!), thicker purple /magenta yarn for house socks (maybe thuja??) and Lisa Souza yarn (Red Devil!) awesome! The pattern is "Twist and Lace" - made to use with the Lisa Souza yarn - excellent! There's Burt's Bees goodies too and a chibi (don't have one yet!!) - so so very excited!! There's even a package of treats for Jackson! Thank you for spoiling me so very very much!!

Here's a short sample of Ireland:

Slainte! At the Guinness Storehouse.


Blarney Castle

Cliffs of Moher - my favorite!

At Blarney Castle - I swear this coat was made out of electric blue fun fur!

How did you know? Did I sign the note? I've been known to do that before. Or, I guess the Louisiana thing could have given me away. Either way, glad you liked the stuff! Garrison was adamant about the Krabby Patties, so I hope they aren't too terrible. :)
From one science nut to another, hope you liked it all.
I've enjoyed reading your blog!

Just wanted you to have another heads-up. I sent your MYB box this morning about 9 AM from Omaha. The post office lady said that it should get there by Friday! Happy unwinding!
