Don't you just love surprises!

As I have said before, going to get the mail is one of the highlights of my day! Despite shredding 3/4 of it (but I love my shredder), I still get all giddy. We have one of those community mailboxes so the poor little mailmen only have to stop at one place instead of 24 houses. So I get my little golden key as Livi calls it, and go across the street.
I got the new Pottery Barn Kids catalog. There are some very cute backpacks and lunch boxes. I earmarked a few pages because we will be needing some cute ones in a month or so.
I get some magazine for Mike....make note to self to cut off address before I stick it in his next box going out. ooh wait. what is this?? something I don't have to shred??
Then what do I see??...what is this cute little envelope from Starbucks?? I know I tried every dang day to enter when they were doing the free t-shirts on their website. I never did get one. I am sure they gave out like three a day, but I was there every day trying! I kept trying to remember if I entered my birthday on their website. I mean, I know I go to the one here a lot. But since I started going to Jazzercise, I had cut back considerably.
Call me slow, or more likely, exhausted. But I was wondering what I had done to get a gift card from Starbucks. Then in teeny tiny print at the bottom is a note from my husband.
I have already gotten my birthday gift of the new camera when Will left our the old camera out in the rain. My birthday isn't even until July, so I was quite surprised.
Livi and I just might have to go have a latte and a star muffin tomorrow. Thanks husband!

I so wished we had a Starbuck's in our neck of the woods. I would be there 10 times a day(probably more). The closest one is 30 min away, and by the time I got back to work it would be COLD!!! What a nice gift, so maybe there will be more??!!

Going to get the mail is one of my favorite things too. Your hubby sounds like a sweetheart!

sisters with style- he is, and this deployment has shown me how much he really means. Yes, I am sure the clothes in the bottom of the closet will bug me next year! But overall, he is wonderful!!

sandra- ours in on one of the busiest streets in town, so we don't go as often as we used to.

tulipmom- yes, he is. When he was home, he would often take the kids to get me one on my 'sleep in day'...we traded off days on the weekend.

Awwww that is so sweet. I pulled up at Starbucks to try a piece of their orange creme coffeecake this a.m. but the line was too long and I had to scurry off to work empty handed.
P.S. I want a "golden key"

mmm... caramel machiatto is my favorite. Getting the mail too - but only so I can intercept the credit card bill first if it was a "busy" month! What he doesn't know won't hurt him - right?!

What a loving thoughtful husband you have. You must be glowing with love for him!!
Pre-Birthday celebrations I could go for that!!
