The Mysterious Package

Today I received a mysterious package in the mail. Here is what happened in a matter of minutes of receiving this package.

My 7yr old, Shiloh walks in with the package saying "Mom you got a package in the mail."

I look at him with my brows turned up and with a confused look and answer:


"Who sent me something?"

"I never ordered anything"--then i was thinking I accidently had ordered something from ebay, while listing my books I was selling or the books I had mailed out came back. OH NO!!!

I figured that didn't happen. So then I say "Oh, maybe it's from Grandma Coffey" (pronounced coffee) My hubby's grandma who always send us stuff. Nope it wasn't from Grandma.

I look over at my husband working hard on the computer "Honey, did you order anything?"

Not listening to a word I just said...says hmmm.

Then a creepy thought crosses my mind "Oh no...... maybe it's a bomb!!"

Then I finally pick up the package,feel it, smell it, and look at the address, thinking " Who is White?" Then I look at the address ........thinking "who's out in California?" Thinking...."should I go throw this in the dumpster, run out of the house, call the police?" Many thoughts of "what to do" can cross a person's mind when thinking it's a bomb.

Then the light bulb goes on " coffee I won from the blog. I totally forgot!!"

All of this went on in my head and out of my mouth in a matter of a minute. LOL

I had played a "question contest" on my bloggy friend's blog Raising Miracles and won the contest! As my prize, I received two big bags of yummy smelling coffee. (I still need to brew a can't say "tasted" yet.) Good thing it wasn't a bomb!!! Or my books being returned!!!

Hope all is well this week and I am going to post more pics of my vacation.

Till then....

yes, I'm always a little nervous about those mystery packages but this one was a good one. My husband put in an extra bag, so you won twice :) WHOO Hoo for Chris :)
Enjoy your coffee girl :)
Hmm, I also have not had the privilege of tasting my BIL's coffee (I don't drink coffee, never have, doubt I ever would), but YES it does smell fantastic!!

I also got a mystery package today, from Vegas... who would I know in Vegas?!?!? Then I realize it was a baby gift for our Isabella from one of the partners at my hubby's firm. NICE. Love the mystery gifts!! Congrats.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
