Care Package Reveal #2

A few weeks ago I mentioned a care package reveal that you did not want to miss. Well here it is! One of my most favorite people in the whole world abandoned me in Texas a few years ago to move to LA and follow her dreams or whatever. Ok, in all seriousness I am so proud of her and all the risks she has taken and all she has accomplished throughout the past few years. Our friendship is a special one. We have not seen each other in over a year but somehow manage to talk to each other every day. She is the only person I can talk with about my crafts, my nails, and my indecisive mind. I hope she knows how much that means to me, and how much she means to me. So now, before the waterworks show up, I want to give y’all a tiny glimpse of our amazing friendship through her eyes with this first little care package from her. (Yes, I said first because I expect way more to come Tanya!)


Here we are, NYE 2010, during one of her Texas visits. I don’t care that this picture is so old, I still love it!


I love Tanya for so many reasons. I found out reason #856 with this letter, and the explanation of the box and its contents and this adorable stamp with the adorable little guy from UP.


I sat on the floor and opened it up to this seaweed snack! More on that in a bit.


She chose this very random selection of books for me. Why? I don’t think she even has an answer for that! Except for maybe the San Francisco travel guide. We have been planning a little vacation to SanFran for the near future and I have been having so much fun reading up on the things we can do while we are there! And I love how she folded down the pages that interested her as well! As for the other two books, I have not opened those yet since I am usually reading 5 books at a time. I think I will try out the “Get serious about getting married” one. I hope its a comedy!


Next these two movies. Wrapped in the coolest shopping bag ever. Her note mentioned she bought these at a discount store for a dollar each! I am guessing her thought process here was: Sonia lives in Texas and loves Drew Barrymore. If I’m right then I am really impressed with how well she knows me 🙂


The seaweed!!!! Tanya, my favorite health nut, sent me an assortment of her favorite snacks from Trader Joes, since, in her words, “I am not blessed to live near one.” I have to admit, I love this stuff! I substitute it as a tortilla sometimes and do not taste too much of a difference. I do not usually buy it for myself and am really thankful that she thought to send me some.



Oh. My. Gosh. I pretty much inhaled this in one sitting. I am not usually a fan of trail mixes, but this one was definitely different, in that it was delicious! I hope she is reading this and takes it as a hint for more!


Ditto for these! These dried apple rings are so sweet and delicious. They have been my purse snack the past few days. What I love most about this healthy snack is that a little bit goes a long way. I definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for a healthier work-time snack.

This was definitely such a great surprise! I thank you so much Tanya for being so thoughtful and sending me a great package! Let me know when yours arrives so I can let the blog community know what you thought about it!

There are a few other things she sent that I did not think would make sense to the people who do not know us 🙂 But I will just tell you, they were as awesome as she is.

I hope you have enjoyed this little glimpse into my life and one of my favorite friendships. I encourage you all to think of someone you can surprise with a little package, and send it their way. A little definitely goes a long way and it is such a great way to show someone how much you appreciate them in your life.
