SS!!!!

OMG I LOVE WHAT MY SS GOT ME!! YES, YELLING IN NECESSARY!!

The box came two days ago but Mike failed to mention to me until yesterday morning it had arrived. I opened it to find an adorable scarf, some yummy coffee and this FABULOUS purple bolero. Guess what I wore to work yesterday?? yay!!

Excuse the pic. I didn't have the time to have some one take on of me in it until we were out at the bar after work. They didn't even tell me to smile so I wasn't ready and they were being idiot boys and refusing to take another in better light :) I promise it is the cutest thing ever and I got compliments ALL day long on it!







I promise to take a pic of the scarf and a better one of the bolero when I get home later today. I just couldn't wait to share!

    Awesome! I have no idea what a bolero is but it looks great on you.

    And 2 whole days? Crazy H.

    AW I love the bolero, so cute.

    Where are these SS's getting all this great stuff I thought we had a $20 limit? I feel like I could have done something a little extra for mine now. I'm loving all these gifts so creative. Great job SS.

    It is the purple shrug thing I have on. You wear it over stuff like I am wearing it over the black shirt here. It kept me so nice and warm from the drafty window behind me in my office.

    I don't know about others, but my gifts didn't go over the limit. I gave 1 main/big gift then a couple other things that were just because, just for fun. I'm good at finding cheap yet awesome stuff.

    Yay, SS!  That bolero is really cute.

    Ditto, Sesh.  I didn't go over the spending limit (or I did only by a dollar or two), although my gift didn't have as many components as some that I'm seeing.  I just shopped sales, etc.  Some of these gifts are pretty fantastic, though!

    I bought a couple gifts that were close to adding up to 20 bucks and then threw in a couple fun, cheap things.  Shipping is what screwed me, though, lol.

    I went over in the mailing too. There was one gift I wanted to get that would have been over $20, but then I couldn't have done the other stuff so I choose something else. I was determined to send the smaller things with the main gift.

    I had to have it shipped to me, and then ship it again. So thats what screwed me.

    Rawr.  I want to be on you.

    Everytime I do a gift exchange I know I'm going to get hammered on shipping, stupid sending things over the border.  But oh well.

    I was wondering about that. If KW had been in the SS I would definitely suspect her. But, I do have another idea of who it may be.

    [QUOTE]Speaking of sending things over the border, this is funny in an "I am stupid" way.  I sent my Christmas cards out on Monday, but I put Raynes' and Any's cards separate because I have to find out what postage I need.  Where did they end up?  In the pile that was sent out.  I received them back yesterday with big messages "NO POSTAGE!  POSTAGE IS NEEDED! PLEASE ATTACH POSTAGE" on them. Ugh.
    Posted by NatesGirl16[/QUOTE]

    Aww boo. I HATE THAT.

    Andand, does that mean I should get a card soon?!?!
  • Options
    Haha Nates, that's totally something I would do too.

    I know from here to there it's $1 for postage (probably plus tax too).

    Canada Post is nice and puts on easy to remove stickers so you just have to affix your postage and go.  I had a few TYs come back that way.  Durrrr.
