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.

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
