I love Tuesdays!!

When I was a child I always remember looking forward to going to get the mail. Even if it was just "junk" I wanted to look at each and every piece. I am still that way today. I don't so much like the bills now but I still look forward to opening that little door every day and seeing what might be inside for me!! Well, today did not disappoint. I came home from work, feeling under the weather, to a huge box of goodies!!

If you have a gluten allergy or know someone that does, Amazon has the best prices hands down,on gluten free food. You do have to purchase in bulk but if you have a favorite this might be the place to get it. Several weeks ago, Elsie wrote on her blog about Pamela's Gluten Free Pancake Mix ad how they make the best cookies ever. I have tried several different mixes and was never impressed with any of them. This blew me away. Hands down the best cookie I have ever made and the first time I made a batch I even forgot the brown sugar.(oops) Take a look at the stuff awaiting me at my doorstep:

This mac-n-cheese is so yummy too!! I got twelve boxes!! Yes!!

The best thing waiting for me, however, was this amazing Favorite Things Art Journal Kit I ordered from Elsies at www.redvelvetart.com. I can't wait to start my very first Art Journal. I will definatly post my pages as I complete them. Can't wait!!

To make the night perfect Scott and I tried a new recipe out of the May 2009 issue of Martha's Food. It was Jamaican Chicken Curry and delicious! Great to eat while watching my two favorite shows, Biggest Loser and American Idol. (Why am I always eating while watchig Biggest Loser??)

Oh and today is my good fried Marks birthday. Happy Birthday! Can't wait for our St. James adventures this weekend. Hope you had a great day. Love ya!!

And one last thing... I have to brag on my fiance, Scott. He is getting ready to get his Phd in Theatre History and has recently started writing plays again. In the last month he has completed two plays. Today he finished his first draft to his second play, Mum Bett. I can't wait to read it. He even went out and printed it out for me to read. I am so proud of him.

Hope everyone else had as great a Tuesday as I did!!
