Exciting News!

I have some exciting news..I got a package in the mail yesterday! I know, people get packages every day, how is this exciting news?

Well, it was the best kind of package – a Foodie Blog Swap package! The Foodie Blog Swap was hosted by Jemma from Celery and Cupcakes and paired an American blogger with a UK blogger to send each other some yummy things that aren’t available in their country. I packed up my box on Friday and shipped it out to Lucy from Porridge and Parsnips.

When I got back from work today, this baby was waiting for me.

Of course, I ripped it open right away to find a box packed to the brim with lots of goodies. I haven’t tried any of the things that I got before, so I’m really excited.

She also sent a cute card with a really sweet message.

Thanks so much Lucy! I really hope you enjoy your package!

Since it was International Women’s Day yesterday, Tommy surprised me and my mom with gorgeous flowers. What a sweetheart! I love me some purple tulips!

Yesterday was also my last day of school before spring break and my professor was even nice enough to let us out early. Since the weather was still absolutely gorgeous at 8 at night, I got home, changed into some comfy clothes and went for a walk with Tommy and Munchkin. Our half hour walk turned into an hour walk and we ended up surprising Munchkin’s godfather with a visit along the way. Even though we brought Munchkin’s stroller, he walked the whole way – over two miles! He slept like a rock as soon as we got home!

I woke up this morning and did Workout C of the Best Body Bootcamp and holy molly, it was intense. It was a total body workout that didn’t require weights. I hadn’t heard of a lot of the moves before the workout, so I had to watch the videos that Tina provided. The sweat was pouring off of me after doing only the first set. The exercises are really well put together and it 40 minutes I worked my whole body to the max. I was feeling jello arms and legs for a while after the workout. I have to say that by doing these workouts and trying to eat clean, I think I am starting to see results. I was showing off my muscles to Tommy last night and he said soon enough I’m going to be putting his to shame! Yes! :)

I’ve got a to-do list a mile long today, but my first priority is finishing up my midterm paper, so I can have a homework and worry free weekend in Philly. I’m supposed to be done with everything by 4 PM, but we’ll see how that goes.

Have a great weekend!

What are your plans for the weekend? Have you ever participated in a blog swap?
