Lucky Ducky!

I don't know why it has taken me so long to post about this but better late than never, right? I have to say, without straying too far into maudlin territory (that, of course, is saved for my "all-around" blog, Kari On, should you wish to learn more), the past year and a half or so has been a particularly trying time for me, for many reasons. However, in the midst of my sturm and drang, there have been some exceedingly bright moments and receiving a surprise care package last Monday from one of my besties, Tara, was certainly one of those moments. Here is what I received:

I had NO idea when Tara posted a mischievous giggle on my facebook page that I was in for such a treat. This box contained many "Mardi Gras-type" beaded necklaces (from Louisiana, natch), tons of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs (which she well-knew are my favorite candies) and twelve, yes TWELVE, beautiful SinfulColors polishes. Here is a better shot of the polishes, arranged "lovingly" to thank my sweet friend for her amazing kindness and generosity.

The colors (starting with the dark reddish color and working around the heart) are: Merlot, Show Me the Way, Mint Apple, Aqua, What's Your Name, Daddy's Girl, Purple Diamond, Bali Mist, Jamboree, Pink Forever, Pinky Glitter, Out of This World, Opal Glitter and Snow Me White. I haven't swatched these yet, aside from on my nail wheel, but when I do, you'll see 'em first. I truly don't know what I did to deserve such a sweet and thoughtful gesture but I am so thankful for it. Finally, here is a shot of the overall booty.

I'm not sure if she is following this blog or not but wow, she is awesome. Am I a lucky ducky or what?

Good gravy...totally ignore my comment asking for the color list...apparently my scroll went to fast or I wasn't paying attention...when I looked back up at the colors again I saw where you had them listed teehee. =P
