I'm a happy girl when the mailbox holds something other than bills. And last week did not disappoint!
I received a package from Italy, it was from Stefano, of Run With The Black Knight!
He was my Secret Gift Exchange Buddy, that Jill organized last December. The package held a Nike neck warmer, a Moleskine planner, and a key chain from Venice! You might remember in an older post, that last year Stefano sent me a key chain from Venice, but all I received was an empty envelope. He later sent me a key chain from Brussels, that I did receive. And this time around, everything was accounted for. I've already worn the neck warmer, and in true Black Knight spirit, everything was black. Thank You Stefano!!!
Remember CSN Stores? They're called Wayfair now, and I think the new website is much easier to navigate. I had a chance to review one of their products, and I chose a lamp, which we really needed. We have a desk for Luke and Eliza in a corner of the living room, but it was a pretty dark space. I had to assemble the lamp, which meant threading the electric cord through each of the pieces that made up the stand (I used a chopstick to get it through the tight spots), and screwing in the lampshades. It took 15 minutes to put together, and I really like the separate lampshade that I can focus directly on the desk.
Last year I did a two week challenge with Amazing Grass, and I'm about to do it again. It entails cutting back on sugar, and eating as clean as possible, while having a daily dose of Amazing Meal, which I add to smoothies. Instead of my usual chocolate flavor, I chose Pomegranate Mango, which just arrived. I'll keep you posted.
Do you ever watch the Today Show? On Thursday's they have a feature, with items you can buy online for a ridiculous discount. I've never ordered anything from it before, but last week, I couldn't turn down one particular item. It's a Kathy Kaehler workout DVD, which is a celeb favorite. It was usually $250, but the bargain price was $18!!
So I ran and got my credit card.
I'll let you know if my butt starts to look like Julia Robert's.
*Note, I was provided with a lamp from Wayfair for the purpose of the review, the opinions on the product are my own.
