this is long overdue.
i entered a contest one one of my favorite blogs several weeks ago. the deal was to shout out your favorite post/outfit from the blog and you'd be entered to win a $25 gift card. sweet! the winner was announced and guess what... it was yours truly!
this is especially exciting because
1. i never win anything
2. i love this blog
so a week or two later i got a mysterious package in the mail. it was far too large to be a gift card so i was curious as to what it contained.
lo and behold, it was gift, wrapped all pretty-like
inside it were 3 smaller packages wrapped in tissue paper. THREE!
i was so excited, i think i peed a little.
the first two contained the gift card with a sweet note, and some minted rose lip balm (which i have been using every day, thankyouverymuch)
the last package was long and round. what could it be?
awesome katie had sent me some vanilla beans!
if that is not above-and-beyond thoughtful, i don't know what is!
this totally made my week. i'm still plotting my attack on anthropologie. i'm thinking the gift card will have to go towards one of these beauties- here, here, here, or here.
i haven't decided what to make with the vanilla beans yet either, but when i do, i'll be sure to share the recipe.
thanks again to Katie of Today I Want!
