We are the champions!

I'm one of those people who still enjoys getting mail. To me, a day with no mail is worse than a day with just bills.

I love catalogs that I didn't order, and am giddy when my Lucky arrives. I will almost do a little dance when any of the freebies, rebates or coupons that I've sent off for arrives.

But this week, I received two prizes that I recently won from bloggy friends!

I got a postcard about the magazine subscription I won from dawniemom at Coming to a Nursery Near you on Monday. My first magazine should be arriving any day. By the way, she's currently hosting another contest at her blog, and you should definitely go enter!

And yesterday we got a goody pack from Scotland, courtesy of Laura at Synchronization of Us.

I opened the package immediately and pulled out all of the fun stuff. Little Elvis honed in on the Scotland keychain. He was extremely impressed with it, and couldn't care less about the boxes of sweets.

At least until supper. Once he saw us eating shortbread cookies and fudge, he immediately wanted a piece of that action. I think the shortbread cookies were his favorite.

I also read us some of the fun Scottish facts from the book we received and Bob spent the evening trying to teach Little Elvis to say, "If it's not Scottish, it's crap!"

Yeah, we're dorks.

HA - hi from a fellow dork - I say that all the time in a very lame Scottish accent.

:D I got those postcards (in the bills for the magazines LOL) and thought it'd be fun to send them so I'm glad you liked it! I'm sure you'll enjoy the mag too. Please feel free to enter all my contests this week, Meredith!

Awesome...I have been suffering from insomnia, and the other morning as soon as my hubby's alarm went off, I rolled over and said, "top of the morning to ya!" in my loudest,(awful) Scottish accent. Mega-dorky!

Congrats on the wins!
