Friday's Favorites: MAIL

Mail this week has been amazing. We all know about my little joy of the mail. Most days I am excited to see what has come, even if it is just junk.  I get satisfaction sorting through it.  This week though was simply H.E.A.V.E.N.  Each day has come with a little surprise to really brighten my mood. 

Monday - Yes, no mail came up today but since we were gone Friday before the mail was delivered we had a two day pile up waiting for us. The fun item in today's pile:  Netflix sent us The Dilemma. 

Tuesday -  Last week before taking off for the weekend I ordered two dresses online from Five Bamboo.  I love wearing dresses in the summer.  They are super quick to put on in the morning and they are a step up from shorts or jeans.  I always have trouble find ones I like though.  I am have a big chest and only certain styles work. Kath mentioned Five Bamboo on her site a while ago and then offered a 15% discount. The dresses are reasonably priced to begin with but 15% they were a steal. I love discounts.  Plus, it's free shipping if you spend over $100. 

I ordered on Friday morning and it was at my house on Tuesday.  Super speedy!  The customer service was fantastic when the website was acting up and they sent a cute freebie bracelet with the order.  Basically, I loved the dresses on their own but all the extra incentives made this a great deal, purchase, experience, mail find.

Wednesday - Free coupon for BareNaked product.  Yep, that was a treat. 

And, the FedEx man dropped by with a very special envelope containing our Food and Wine Festival tickets for October.  This is our third year in a row attending the Grand Tasting and lets just say its one massive feast. 

Thursday - I got a book order.  I am in the traveling mood, and wanted to get some more information about some upcoming trips.  I love researching all of the possible activities and food adventures before a vacation.

Then, there was another package.  Vermont Peanut Butter trio.  Let's just say that these are a bit more like dessert than the typical sandwich spread.  Chucks of chocolate, dried fruit, and seeds are complements to these delicious peanut butter.

Friday - So we don't get mailed delivered till after lunch so I don't know what surprise will be waiting for me.  Even if nothing special arrives I think this week has been pretty sweet. 

Another great thing about the mail this week is what didn't come. No bills!

Happy Friday!

  1. Getting things in the mail is always fun unless the bees or wasps are trying to build again in our mailbox.

  2. Sounds like you definitely have a reason to appreciate the mailbox. Ours has its good days and bad days. Seems like they organize the mail that way.

  5. Fun mail is always great. Over the past few years with electronic everything my mail has reduced to a trickle.. I almost miss junk mail..... ALMOST

  6. I don't know why but I always look forward to the mail also. I think its cause I live out in the middle of no where on a farm and seeing the mailman drive keeps me in touch with the outside

  8. The food and wine fest in Ottawa tickets only go on sale like...a month before! They sell out sooo quickly though!
