Yesterday, after we got back from our wonderful day date watching The Avengers, Stacie and I came home to yet another package from The Internet. This time from bakewithavengeance and his wonderful family.
Enclosed was an adorable outfit for Storie, with cupcakes on it of course; some bracelets and sticker books for Arwen and Greer; a lovely card; and two (yes, TWO) kinds of blondies: Nutella and Butterscotch!!
Thank you so much, guys!
Seriously, if you’re not following bakewithavengeance, you should be. He’s a great dad, great husband, loves to bake and cook, loves videogames…basically, he’s me, but he lives out east.
Happy Friday, everyone!
Where Once Again The Internet Is Filled With Amazing & Wonderful People
Yesterday was a very cool day. Stacie, Storie and I went to an Excellence in Nursing Tea & Awards ceremony at the hospital where Stacie works. Stacie had been nominated for an Excellence in Nursing Award by her coworkers. She was also recognized in several other categories, including her work on the hospital’s Shared Leadership Counsel. Let’s just say that she’s awesome at what she does, even though she didn’t win this year (the nurse that won in her category has been an RN for 20+ years and works with mentally challenged patients, using art and painting to help them recover…can’t top that).
When we arrived home, there was a very large box sitting by our front door. When we opened it, we saw a lovely little card letting us know that the girls’ wonderful friend Chloe from NYC had sent them some really cool things from giggle.com!
Inside the box was this super cool plush animal bowling set, some animal finger puppets, a radically cool book called Tickle Monster with its own monster claws, and a beautiful new outfit for Storie.
The girls were so thrilled! They, of course, wanted to play with everything right then and there, and also wanted me to read them the new book, which I happily obliged.
(below is a video of me reading the book to the girls as a special “thank you” gift to Chloe…please feel free to skip this if you don’t want to watch me read a children’s book to my kids)
Thanks again, Chloe! And please tell your Mommy and Daddy thank you as well for helping you pick out such super cool stuff! Arwen and Greer can’t wait to meet you someday soon!
