Okay, I realize its not Valentine's Day, yet -- in fact I am not trying to diss January or speed up time. But I got my Valentine's Day present from my dad yesterday and it was too cool, not to share! As it happens, I almost always am in Las Vegas for work over Valentine's Day. Generally, I can convince mr.sunneshine to go with me - what would be worse then spending Valentine's Day along in Las Vegas at a convention. I really can't think of anything!! My family loves gifts - giving them, receiving them, but really giving them (any of my past swap pals can confirm this). My dad has a group of women who are special to him that he always gives a Valentine's Day gift to and a note of appreciation for the special people they are. It is one of his favorite things to do! This year, he is giving the handbags made from liscense plates to all the women. Each will be different, picked out specifically for each one of the thirteen. He sent me my gift early, because of the Vegas travel thing, and to my dad there is nothing worse then a present that is given late. I am extra special (hehe, but really I am the only one he is related to on the list), so I also got the scarf with the skulls (LOVE IT!! - and also a reason I got it early, more time to wear this) and the little sock monkey in the skeleton outfit. The little monkey is now hanging in my office to give me a smile every day :) Thanks Dad!!!
Have a great week!
