Things That Came In The Mail

Is there anything better than REAL non-junk mail?  I think not!  I get so tired of the same crappy junk mail every day that I love any fun mail that comes my way.  Lately I've gotten some cool stuff in the mail and I will share it with you.

Mail item #1 came two days before the marathon.  I came home to a box waiting for me.  Cue the excitement :)

I opened it to find this:

It's a water bottle from Lululemon that says, "I <3 Running" that my friend Alison sent me.  So sweet!  Thanks Alison!  Alison is a good friend of mine from DC and she ran her first marathon- The Marine Corps back in November.  We are planning a visit in March and I can't wait to see her :)

Mail item #2 came from Molly at I'm A Sleeper Baker.  She also ran her first marathon this fall and I really enjoy reading her blog.  She offered up some of these fun bumper stickers and I said, "Yes please!".  What a great mantra...

Thanks Molly!

Item #3 was this calendar I made on  I actually got a Groupon or Living Social deal for it.  Greg and I always see Dachshund calendars at book stores and consider buying them and then decide that we could make our own cute calender with pictures of Clyde.  Finally did it!

Item #4 was ordered after I finished the marathon and arrived yesterday.  I had seen these necklaces somewhere in the blog world and wanted one to display my marathon details, but didn't want to order one til I had successfully completed mine (superstitious??).  I ordered two necklaces from The Rusted Chain.

I ordered two so that I can give one to Michelle for being my training buddy and running the entire marathon with me.  I can't wait to give it to her :)

Have you gotten anything good in the mail lately??

What a great mail day! :) I love the "you're capable of more than you realize" quote.

Oh my gosh! That's seriously a lot of goodies in the mail! The most exciting thing I've got lately is the new issue of Real Simple. :\

Love that calendar you made - too precious!

You're so sweet :) I can't wait to see you too! Seems like since you've moved we've gotten closer.

What a great way to remember your first marathon. Love the necklace. That calendar is great too... much more personal than the bookstore generic ones.
