So many prizes!

Is there anything better then coming home from work, and having not one but three packages waiting for you!?  No, I didn’t think so.  First up was the giant box that had been delivered to my front steps.  I had almost forgotten that my mom and I had ordered the third piece of my luggage set last week!

My mom is going to Italy for 18 days next month, and needed another suitcase so she figured if she was going to buy one that we might as well buy one that matches my carry-on and rolling duffel.  Now I just need to go on a trip so I can use them all :).

That delivery alone would have been enough to make my day, but I ran out to grab the mail in the mail box, and there were two more packages with my name on them!  Last week, Leslie at And Her Little Dog Too was doing an Inperspire give-away, and I was one of the lucky winners.  My Inperspire towel came yesterday, and it is awesome!

I can’t wait to use it at the gym, so thanks to Leslie and Inperspire!  And the last prize that came in the mail yesterday was from The Angry Runner.  She accidentally ordered a very nice Brooks running shirt in the wrong size, and was looking to trade with someone and I jumped all over it.  You can be expecting your Starbuck’s gift card!

And you’re right, everyone does love stickers!  So yesterday kind of felt like my birthday, and it was awesome.  After all of my glorious present opening, I had to run out to a doctor’s appointment and then to PT.  PT was the same old stuff just another day, but I did jog for five minutes yesterday!  Woo, getting up there!  Apparently we are just going to build on the time each session.  Fingers crossed I stay pain-free.  During the massage part yesterday, my therapist told me it still felt very tight, but maybe just a little less than before.  That’s good news right?  Sigh, I hope so.

Dinner last night was made from my Easter basket goodies.  Basil Oregano Fettuccine and Feta Stuffed Olives.  I am not a fan of olives, so my plate consisted of just some pasta.

It was good, but I’m guessing the olives give it most of the flavor, because mine just tasted sort of plain.  I would probably buy this pasta again, but use it in a different recipe.

Tonight I am going to a Philly Foodie meet-up in the city, and I am super excited!  I can’t wait to meet all these girls, who I feel like I already know.  And it’s supposed to be a beautiful evening.  Don’t worry there will be a full re-cap tomorrow.  I hope everyone has a lovely day, can you believe there is only one week left in the month of April?
