Don't you love it when you open your mailbox and it's filled with unexpected letters? :p I was a bit disappointed on Saturday when I didn't get a package I was impatiently waiting for, but on Monday, I knew there had to be something in there! And to my surprise, it was more than I'd expected :D.
This is the package I was impatient to get: a really cool set of cookie cutters which lets you stamp custom messages on your cookies :p.
It comes with words such as "thank you", "happy", "birthday" and a bunch of single letters so you can write whatever you want. I can't wait to start baking! By the way, I bought this set over at Williams Sonoma. The photo below is from their site, that's what cookies are supposed to look like, although I doubt I'll do such a good job, haha.
I also got this envelope from sweet Katrin :). Have you visited her blog, Land of Candy Canes, yet? She's a German girl who moved to America, so we have experienced a lot of similar things. The States is a weird country, let me tell ya! Well, at least to people who come from far away, like myself, hehe.
Another pal totally worth meeting, the great Mary, sent me this postcard when she knew I was feeling sick in my stomach. How thoughtful of her, right? ;)
Keeping up with the mail, I got the coolest spam ever! Well, at least I believe it is spam, since I don't recall signing up for anything like this. Take a look at this typo leaflet/catalog.
Isn't it pretty?
When I showed it to David, he said, "Boy, you're gonna have fun cutting all these letters!" Hahaha.
I might do that, but I'm debating whether I should just write a letter all over its pages.
Ok, enough of this; I know!
And this has nothing to do with getting things in the mail, but here are some photos of a spontaneous date night David and I had last Wednesday. We went to Buca di Beppo, have you ever been to one?
I really like this place. Its decor is unique, the drinks are great and so is the food.
If you're a new visitor, they offer a tour to their kitchen. They even have a booth right inside the kitchen that you can book. This time, I had a 4-cheese pizza which was really good. They used a can of peppers as a stand.
Oh, and one more random thing. I am totally hooked on this book, which is very, very rare considering that I usually choose non-fiction books or classics. I read almost half in a like 3 days.
So, what have you been up to?
Are you reading any interesting book? Have you been to any cool place lately?
Please, do share! ;D
