What a day!

It started off by running late to work.

Then I dropped a bit of my breakfast bar on my shirt while eating it at work since I was running late and did not get to eat it before I got to work.

I noticed on my way home from lunch that the concealer under my left eye that I put there to try to cover the dark circles did not get rubbed in too well and was instead all nice and splotchy for everyone to see.

When I got home I happened to notice that the tank top I was wearing under a v-neck top was on inside out. Fabulous. And I did not even get dressed in the dark.

Then on my way back to work after lunch I dropped my opened (of course) lipstick into my lap. Yep, khaki pants today, not black ones. I also managed to get it on the seat of my car. I am pretty sure that won’t come out.

Let me remind you that I do not have any kids to blame any of this on.

By this time I want to crawl back into bed and just wake up tomorrow without breakfast bar on my shirt or lipstick in my lap.
But I manage to make it through the rest of the afternoon without further disaster.
But when I pull up to my house, I see this sitting on my doorstep:
And I have not had such a good day in a long while!

A big ole THANK YOU to all of the generous sponsors who hooked me up!
And another THANKS to Patty Craft and Katie Hilbert and the rest of the Memory Makers staff who strategically packed a whole bunch of scrapbooking goodness into this fabulous box.

Have a great day!
