Soapbox Saturday and a Package From My Parents

I stepped onto my soapbox Wednesday when I addressed my arguments supporting Same-Sex Marriage, so I think that's enough controversy for one week.

That and I'm not feeling well. I haven't been sick since February of 2012 and I'd like to keep it that way! While I know blogging isn't exactly strenuous, migraines don't help the process so it's time to rest.

This week a package arrived from my parents filled with souvenirs from their recent week long excursion to Honolulu. My mom and dad are the most supportive, excellent parents in the Universe so I was thrilled they got to fly FIRST CLASS-- fancy!!!-- to Hawaii and spend a week by the beach in the warmth (they live in the Midwest). Even being on a much deserved vacation, they shopped for their kids (that's me!).  Check it out:

This guy makes me want to drink beer!!

The cookies are tasty!

That's one of the four pineapple knives that got my mom stopped by airport security because she forgot to pack them in the suitcase. Lesson learned.

Plus we got Easter cookies from the family bakery! Oh they tasted like Heaven....

    1. They so were. Midwesterners sure know how to bake!

  2. It's so nice that they flew first class and they bought you those gifts. I'd love one of those cookies now ;)

    1. Yeah you would! Seriously, I'm sad they're gone.

      My parents normally fly coach but my Grandma-- who travels around the world for fun-- gave them her miles as a gift. So jealous: they said first class was wonderful!
