…know that I appreciate both the gift and the joke.

So many dicks...

Unfortunately, I have a strong aversion to gummy candy, which means all of these dicks are probably gonna end up in KB’s mouth.

...so little time.

That’s hot,

…for sending Mr. Fabulous a gift that officially makes her one of us!

The Fab in the hat!

By Dr. Fabulous!

She was feeling so left out,

Claire + Jasika = Good Friends!

…for this amazing (and handmade by Jasika) baby quilt…

Beautiful!

…that has this wonderful little quote (taken from a text KB once sent to Jasika) sewn directly into it.

You are smart. You are funny. You are going to be president one day.

Amazing!

This preceded a basketball game,

Ollenbooties!

…for these handmade booties!

They literally watched a grandmother knit these in Portugal,

…visited a few weeks ago, and he brought me a gift.

Loren! And a new Shady sweatshirt!

A new Shady sweatshirt to replace my old ruined one!

Believe it or not, Loren came across this sweatshirt at Goodwill. So awesome.

Thanks for extending the Shady sweatshirt legacy with your generous gift, Loren.

He can come to Food Night anytime,

Cuteness from the other side of the Atlantic!

…who sent us this baby cuteness all the way from England!

Airplane friends make the best friends,

…we had a Kermit the Frog washcloth we’d use whenever we took a bath.

If you had asked me two days ago what ever happened to it, I would’ve told you our mom probably threw it out or donated it to the Goodwill after we moved away from home. It’s definitely safe to say I hadn’t seen it in nearly two decades.

Last night, Beth gave (what’s left of) it to me as a belated/framed birthday gift.

Oh, the bathtub memories!

It will proudly hang in the bathroom of our new apartment,

Open beer...

…for this sweet little surprise that came in the mail today!

Not only does it open a beer, but it also comes with a little reminder of home.

...with a little love from home.

Thanks, Du and Jade! Youse guys are the best!

Already used it three times today,

…including artwork, coffee, beer, booze… obviously, we have a lot of very thoughtful and generous friends.

But in yesterday’s mail we got a… mini pie! And not just any mini pie, but a Wisconsin Honeypie from Honeypie Cafe in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It’s called a PieGram! Our good friends Dori and Milan sent it to us.

PieGram from Dori and Milan! (And Honeypie.)

It was gone before we went to bed.

It also came with a sweet postcard that was illustrated by a familiar artist. Although, I can’t seem to place his name for some reason.

Dwelle...? Something? Am I on the right track?

Dori and Milan, thanks for an amazing surprise… and a little slice of home.

Our friends are the best friends,

...GRITS!

Thanks to Shelley and Kenley for the gift,
