Sorry that I haven't been blogging or commenting much lately. Life is overwhelming me right now.
This past week I was extremely surprised when a package arrived. I definitely wasn't expecting any purchases in the mail. I received a love package from Brianna of The Sungirl Says.
The package included a very sweet note along with some very wonderful products! A bow-shaped red dotted hair velcro, Hello Kitty scrubby bath towel, Hello Kitty oil blotting sheets and a bunch of samples. There was also a Canmake Shimmer Jelly Eyes 02, which is an eyeshadow that is waterproof! It's a beautiful "nude" color. There was also a bottle of Lush, It's Raining Men shower gel!!! I had been trying to get this at my local Lush store and it was completely out. I'm so grateful to Brianna for gifting this to me. I can't wait to try it! Thank you so much Brianna for the wonderful surprise and for your friendship. It was truly something that helped to brighten my week.
As I mentioned, I've been overwhelmed by life. It's been our busy period at work and I've been working every day with long hours. On top of that, this week we had to get our roof completely redone. Coming home from work late and being tired, it wasn't fun coming home to a house that has been completely covered by a film of dust. I would have to spend my time cleaning up the entire house before I could do anything else. My son is coming home for a visit next week Friday and it was decided a couple of weeks ago that they would hold a private wedding ceremony and reception here. He was going to register his marriage in Japan a while ago but has been having some difficulties with the Board of Education as far as his apartment situation. With the cancellation of bigger celebrations in Hawaii and Japan, this private affair will be his main celebration. With this in mind, I've been scrambling to secure permits for a beach wedding and we're still trying to figure out where to hold the mini reception. I have also decided, on my own, to make this very much like a regular reception and have been busy trying to figure out party favors, order a cake and buy the wedding cake top. I'm also in the process of making the wedding announcements which will be mailed out after the ceremony. The original design was very intricate and my electronic cutting machine has been giving me major problems so I've had to redesign the announcement. With all of this happening, I will probably be away from blogging for longer periods until after they return to Japan. I will be reading blogs and hopefully comment but if not, I promise that I'll catch up on everything eventually.
