OF SURPRISES AND SKIRTS

Howdy Y'all! I sure am having a mighty good day so I thought I'd share with you just why that is. (All said in a thick Southern accent...LOL)







This fine FedEx man comes in to my office with this huge box and I'm wondering where in the hell it came from. He says to me, "I know you know who this came from." I say, "I have no idea!" Then a couple of my colleagues come into my office and we proceed to open the box and I discover 2 DOZEN gorgeous fresh pink, yellow, orange and red roses!!!! It even came with a vase and instructions on how to cut the flowers and care for them....cos believe me, I wouldn't have known what to do with them cos I've never really gotten a bunch of flowers before! I've gotten the odd red rose here or there but never anything like this. I arranged them myself and everything! Not bad for a first try...professional florists, eat your heart out! LOL. Now, as for who they came from....I'm afraid I'll have to keep that to myself....LOL. But to that person....THANK YOU VERY MUCH. You made my week! Grand gestures are not always necessary but hell, sometimes they're just the thing!

Moving on.....here are pictures that I promised of the P&R skirt that Low gifted me with for my birthday. I haven't worn the other one yet but when I do, I will post pics.







And finally, on September 20th, in the year of our Lord 19.., the world was undoubtedly blessed by the birth of a baby girl. She would come to be a beautiful, inspirational, talented woman who is contributing to the betterment of Nigeria and the World. I am proud to call her a friend and confidante.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY ICY!!!! Love You so much girl, and thank you for the opportunity you're giving me - I appreciate it. Your call the other day was also a very nice surprise!

*trying to figure out why the picture has your face cut off*

nice flowers. the skirt fits you well (unless you're making funny faces- explains why you didn't dispay your face). and yeah...some surprises are good.

continue to have a wonderful day!

Ms. May said...

@walephotos: thanks. it's all about the skirt on this one, hence the face no-show.

That's a cute skirt. I used to hate anything with print patterns, but now I see that it depends on the wearer.

Nice blog, by the way.
