A New Candy!

Today I got home to find this package in my mailbox (well it was actually on the counter since Jonathan had already gotten the mail)! Can you tell where it's from?? It's a package from Canada! From my blog friend Sue who lives in Canada!! Sue was one of my first blog friends. We met in the comments of our favorite author, Kristin Billerbeck's blog. We've never met in person, but maybe one day we will... I just love reading Sue's blog. She's real and always leaves such uplifting comments. You should head over and check out her blog. You won't regret it! She's just so sweet:)

I know you're dying to know what was inside my package! Well, first was this absolutely adorable card! Is this me or what? With the sweetest note inside! Then there were these: A week or so ago, Sue blogged about her favorite candy called Smarties. But they are nothing like the American sour candies. They are kinda like M&M's but different. I left her a comment and told her I was intrigued with this weird candy, so she asked for my address and told me she'd send me some! How sweet is she? So, I've tried them and I think they are a bit crunchier than M&M's and quite delicious. I can you really go wrong with chocolate?? :)

Jonathan saw the box when I opened the package and broke on into it and shoved a few in his mouth and he was surprised to find chocolate. He loves any fruity candies and thought they were the American Smarties:) HA! That'll teach ya to get off my chocolate! Just kidding honey! i love you:) You can have some Smarties if you want!!

Thanks so much Sue, both for the fun package (its always fun to find something more than bills in the mail) and for your friendship and encouragement! It was a great way to end a busy Monday!

I love Smarties! I had a student who used to visit Canada a few times a year, so he always brought me Canadian candy! Yum! :)

Awww Abby! I'm sorry I missed this post - I'm SO glad you liked them! Thanks for the sweet comments too. I think you're pretty special yourself ;-) I do hope to meet you one day. Hopefully Doug will get to take me back to Nashville and we'll stop by on our way down ;-)

I've been a bad blogger lately. All that sleep deprivation got me out of my blogging groove. Gotta get back to it ;-)
