Christmas came early!

So Santa (a.k.a Sandy at Sandy a la Mode) came early and sent me a beautiful surprise yesterday! Well, I guess it wasn't entirely a surprise because I knew it was coming, but still! I came home tired and defeated from my long day of work, and what is in my mailbox but my winnings from The Sweetest Petunia's giveaway! And let me tell you, if winning wasn't enough, the cute packaging made it even better!
I am? Thanks Sandy!
Before I even get to the loot, I see this darling tag packed in there! Um, hello! How freaking cute is this?? Not only does it make me feel like she especially sent this just for little ol' me, but what does it have on it? That's right, a bow! A girl after my own heart. We are two kindred spirits, Sandy! But wait, there's more!
A fabulous and beautiful ring, and what is it sitting on? A bow!

As much as I loved the presentation, I just had to take it out of the box and put it right on my hand. Just to make sure I loved it as much as I did in the pretty little box.
Yup, love it! Moving on.
I am absolutely smitten with this bobby-pin. Sometimes I am just so bored with my hair, and I never know what I could do to it that would add some pizzazz. Well look no further, pizzazz galore! And, how dainty and cute are those earrings? In one of my favorite colors of the moment no doubt. Again Sandy, you get me, you really do. Nothing makes me believe this more then the final item I received in my package...are you ready....
A BOW!!!!!! Can you see the shock and awe in my face???
You best believe that bows are coming back in style because I am never taking this bad boy off every again. I am in love, no I am obsessed with it. I want one in every color! Christmas anyone? I will be accepting Sandy a la Mode bows as gifts for any readers that just feel like buying me a present. Thanks! :) Photoshoot in 3, 2, 1.
As if this wonderful bow-filled night could get any better me and my love Nicholas made a scrumdidlyuptious meal! Salmon, with rice pilaf and fresh French bread. Is your mouth watering? Mine is, and I already ate it! 
Mr. Handsome cooking in the kitchen. I told him to stand up because he was slouching and this is what her gave me:
This was his "I'm serious and standing up straight" face. I just about died of laughter, but luckily I got the shot. He will probably not speak to me after showing this to you. Totally worth it.
This is the extent of my cooking skills in the kitchen. Nick lets me cut the bread, and I even suck at that. It is too soft and I always smoosh it into oblivion. I tend to just stick to baking....
Then attack of the food-sniffing missle that is Hudson! If he smells food, he is there! I know he looks like a starving child, but I swear I feed him everyday! Don't call animal services on me!
Hudson's though process: "I'm sitting nicely, now where is my food?" (He is so much cuter without creepy devil eyes. Darn camera)
And then, we ate. Boy did we eat. It was salmony and delicious. Also, is there anything better then freshly made bread and butter? Literally, I could eat that everyday. Just that. I would probably be 392364847687263 pounds, but it would be worth it. 

Don't forget, you still have time to enter my A Complicated Giveaway!!! The name is deceiving, it is super easy to enter. Good luck!
