I was so excited when I looked through the sidelight on my front door to see a box sitting there, with a very cute mailing label. I knew that my newly acquired reign as one of Crumpet's Strumpets had truly paid off! The roosters were here! Woooooooooooo hooooooooooo!
If, for some reason you do not read Nikki's Blah Blah Blah Blog, like maybe because you live in an alternate universe, you should click here and see how she announced the winners of her 100th post giveaway. It was pure frickin' genius, I promise you. And I'm not even saying that 'cause I was one of the winners either! While you're there, be sure to give Ozzie a good hiney scratching, but Crumpet deserves that, plus a belly rub since he's made me one of his special hos. Have pity on these poor boys. Nikki does unspeakable things to them, such as dresses them up in feminine attire. Then she wonders why they eat her mail.
But anyhoo, let's get to the goodies! I think I may have let out a little Picket girly squeal when I saw my package! Look at how cute the mailing label is!
Whew! Thank goodness she didn't use packing peanuts, 'cause I'd just vacuumed.
And look, she even sent a card! And just to let me know that she now knows how to pronounce my name correctly, she even spelled it phonetically! Now Nikki, you do know that Tiney is not pronounced the same as tiny, right?
She even wrote me a sweet note. I wish I could say that I teared up and felt all veklempt, but this is Nikki we're talking about. I laughed! Okay, honesty here. I laughed and felt all warm and fuzzy. But that could have been because I was hot from vacuuming and was covered in cat hair.
Ooh, what have we got here? It's my cute little rooster lamp (love the fringe on the shade!) and pretty rooster plate! I was so excited that I nearly didn't see the broken light bulb and almost sliced my finger clear off! Okay, slight exaggeration. I just wanna make Nikki feel bad that the bulb didn't make it even with her expert wrapping. But isn't it just my luck? A giveaway prize has to cost me money (the bulb) and caused me to have to re-vacuum so my kids wouldn't get little glass shards in their feet. (The bulb again)
All kidding aside, I love love love my rooster stash and will think of Nikki, Ozzie and Crumpie every time I look at either one! Thanks you boys, and you too Nikki! I wuvs ya!!!
