Friends With Benefits

Ahhh...friends...somnetimes I don't quite know what I've done to deserve them but oh mannn... I must have done something right.  Not only are my friends wonderful, witty, funny, smart, brilliant, sassy, fiesty, sexy, beautiful, caring, compassionate, generous, eclectic, quirky, varied, crazy, life bon vivants... they also like sending me gifts. 

As if their presence, personalities and friendship weren't beneficial enough.

My darling Sarah told me she was sending me a small parcel.  When I had to hire a forklift to help me carry the parcel home... I realised our definitions of small differ... J
...And then... this 'small' parcel?  It was kinda like this... !!!!!!! 

By the way... if you ever meet her on the street, DON'T compliment what Sarah is wearing, no matter how gorgeous it is and how much saliva is pooling in your mouth.  Because she'll give it to you.  I made the 'mistake' of complimenting those divinnneeeee coral wedges and well, what do you know?  Lucky it wasn't her dress...

You will be seeing those [sigh...faint] pink chequered shoes very very soon and that sapphire skirt... oh.MY.Goddddddd.  Those lime espadrille wedges!!  aaarggghhhh!!! LOVVVE!!  Sigh. Sarah... love.

...and...just before Easter I received these WONDERful things from a most wonderful [non blogging, living too far away from me and dammit i miss her] friend.  My Wonder Woman fantasy obsession... love is well known but dammit seems I'm not the only one.  That lipgloss is by M.A.C. and is sold out in Australia!  All the WW products are!
...Even though the Aus dollar is stronger, the WW products cost 3 times more than in the US. Robbers.  Even though I do use M.A.C. lipsticks I still balk at the ridiculous prices.

Thank you my darlings!!!

I can absolutely imagine why your friends love you so much. You are like that. So charming, a pure soul.
You deserve such lovely friends and such lovely gifts.
You look like a kid in the pictures, who is excited to open her Birthday presents and is super charged to show them.
Enjoy my dear- your friends, your gifts and everything.
God bless you always.
