A Mysterious Package





A few weeks ago, I came home from school to a large package sitting outside the door--the return address a mysterious one. It was addressed to me, not to Angel, which made me feel sure I could open it (I would open Angel's mail, only it's close to Christmas so I'm a little wary of accidentally coming across Christmas presents). I opened the package, and it quickly became apparent that, mysterious return address aside, the package was from my parents!!

That was quite the event, because they never send us packages! Not everything in the package was for Angel and I, in order to have more efficient shipping, they'd sent presents for my brother and sister and other relatives for us to distribute. But what they sent me...oh, it was perfect!! I put this dress on, and the first  word I said was "Amazing!!!" My mom has largely refused to shop for me for years, claiming that I'm too picky, but in reality, she knows my style. This dress could hardly get any more Rachel-ish--from the variety of colors to the fact that it sparkles and has zippers across the front, purely for decoration!

So, of course I promptly wore it to the family Thanksgiving dinner. Upon looking at my outfit, I lean towards the opinion that it looks slightly more like an outfit that you might wear clubbing than a fall holiday outfit, but I don't know. I've never been clubbing, and have no desire to go. I wanted to wear this outfit, though, so Thanksgiving Day it had to be.

And guess what else Mom and Dad sent in the package:


Thank you Mom and Dad for your lovely gifts. And the very subtle hint.

  5. HAHA...that's totally something my husband's parents would do. We'd barely been married a year when his mother bought us a little ceramic piggy bank that says "Grandma Loves Me". She can barely stand it that we've been married almost 3 years and don't have a baby yet. My mom...understands the importance of the right timing and hasn't even mentioned it. Haha.

  7. hahhaahaha!

    Whenever we visit my mom, she leaves us all sorts of hints in the guest bedroom. They don't let it go easy... the grandchildren thing, do they?

  8. Super cute dress! My mother in law told us we should wait until she buys her travel trailer so she can pull it up to our house and stay for a few days.

  13. Ha! a 'subtle' hint. Man, I hope my mom doesn't start sending those.

    That is a great dress, though! And I could totally see it at a holiday party, not just clubbing.

  14. First of all thank you for visiting my blog and for the sweet thougts. Those pictures were taken next to my in laws house and they have this giant hays.

Love that dress and of course you look great !
