Fun Mail

January 13, 2009 Sarah Coggins

A couple of weeks ago I placed an order on Amazon for 2 items – a maternity swimsuit and a 2009 calendar. The orders were shipped separately. I received the swimsuit on Saturday and expected the calendar to arrive yesterday. When I came home, I instead found not one but two packages awaiting me. The surprise box was a gift my from cousin’s wife – The Baby Book. I’m looking forward to reading it.

    oh I *LOVE* surprises in the mail.

    But people tend to ruin it by saying "I sent you something" lol. Although, it's still fun to get snail mail!! especially parcels!!

    What... no picture of the swimsuit? I hated to go swimming when I was pregnant because basically I couldn't find one the didn't make me look more like a beached whale than I already did. Then I found Target's maternity bathing suit and was saved. Then I just looked like mini- beached whale!! :o)
