A Beautiful Note & European Money
I literally started crying. How beautiful was her note! A number of bloggers have mentioned that their blog friends show more concern and treat them better than their "real" friends. I truly want to say, that the bloggers I've encountered while blogging have given more to me and treated me better than people I've known & done for over the years. It's sad, but it's the truth! So Kizzy, thank you for being a genuine friend. Those coins are my good luck coins. Even if I went to Europe, I wouldn't spend them. They are truly precious to me.
I knew Kizzy was going to send something sweet! She sent me Cadbury and Buchanan's! Cadbury is a British Confectionery Company. We have some of their sweet treats here in the States, but the Cadbury bars Kizzy sent were really gooooood. HaHaHa You know how something originated in a certain place, but there's nothing like the original. Well that must be the case for Cadbury! European chocolate taste different from ours in the States. It's not as sugary (sweet) and has a real cocoa taste. Kizzy, my mom and I LOVE Buchanan's! Their chocolate and fruit candy are amazing! One piece totally satisfies your sweet tooth. My mom has already put in a request for more later this year. HaHaHa Kizzy, next time I'll send you & your family a WHOLE sweet potato pie. HaHaHa
Marks & Spencer Ltd Routemaster Double Decker Bus Cookie Tin
I'm keeping this tin FOREVER! Not only does it feature the popular Routemaster double decker bus, but I couldn't get over the characters displayed on the bus. How awesome! They had Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria, King Henry VIII, London police, English bulldog and so many others on it. HaHaHa This tin was filled with 3 layers of cookies: Belgian Chocolate Shortbread, Shortbread Rounds, and Double Chocolate Chip. Sorry, no pics of the cookies, because ME ate them! HaHaHa Kizzy I loved this tin! It's so beautiful. Thanks girl!
The 2012 London Olympics
I watched nearly every minute of the 2012 London Olympics last year. I took it all in and loved it. Kizzy didn't forget. She sent me this awesome 2012 London Olympic Tin that included Team Britain Tattoos and an awesome Olympic keychain with London charms. The charms included the popular red phone booths, double decker buses, tube and olympic logo.
Hello! Hello! Kizzy sent me Hello Kitty nail polish. How fabulous are those colors! She also gave me Figs & Rouge Coco Vanilla lip, face, hand & body balm, tartan socks & cupcake footies, House for an Art Lover pins, and the prettiest flower necklace from McNeils Jewellers.
Marvelous Poems, Postcards, & Literature
Let me tell you, Kizzy knows her history! I personally enjoy understanding how things began (places & people). Everything has a history! Understanding the beginning of ANYthing or ANYone, will help you understand what's going on with that particular something/someone TODAY. Kizzy, thank you for the awesome literature. I'm enjoying all the books and I love the little notes you wrote between the various pages ;) Thank you for sending the local Telegraph! It was so awesome to read the articles and advertisements. So Kizzy, as you can see, I enjoyed EVERYTHING! You are truly AWESOME!
