Awesome Mail!

It's not every day that you get THIS in the mail!  When I saw I had a package by my front door, I looked at who it was from and knew exactly what it was.  So, I had my boys do the honor of opening it!
You know what they found?

That's right.  They found

I love this picture because it shows their complete excitement about having this HUGE gummy bear!!
I won this awesome contest from EMZ  [HERE] and was so excited because I knew my boys would love this!  And, I might love it a little bit too! :)

So, what do you think the first thing we did was?  Here's a hint: Now you see them.

Now you don't.

That's right, we ate the poor gummy bear's ears!  Ha ha!  They were DELICIOUS!  Blue raspberry is a super yummy gummy bear flavor! YUM!

Look at how big those ears are in my boys' hands!

Seriously, this thing is HUGE!  It is literally as big as my head!  Ha ha.
Note: This picture was taken by my 3yr. old.  Not too bad huh? :)
I'm not sure how long we will have this gummy bear, but let's just say that a little bit of it disappears every day! :)

There was another awesome thing in the box too!

I'm sure you all know this by now, but EMZ is running in an amazing event.  She is doing a 24 hour treadmill charity run to benefit the Sojourner Center [HERE] which provides shelter and support to those affected by domestic violence.  She is going to ROCK it by the way!!  I donated to this amazing cause and got one of the famous t-shirts!  Woohoo!  The only problem is that it's way too big for me.  Bummer!  So, my husband is the proud new owner of this awesome shirt!

BUT, even though I can't wear the shirt, this phrase has become one of my favorites.  I have to say that it has been key for helping me get through my recovery runs on the treadmill.

Thanks EMZ!!  And, thanks Peanut for the little notes! :)

I want to give a huge shout out to all of you racing in the Boston marathon!  You are all going to do awesome and I can't wait to read all about your race!  GOOD LUCK, GOOD LUCK, GOOD LUCK!!!!

Wow! That gummy bear would work really well as a replacement for clif shots. I'd cut it up into shot block sizes and put them in a ziplock baggy. Cool!! And the shirt rocks even if it is too big for you.

B Sue Fly said...

yum! That would last about a day at my house!

Heather said...

Where can I get one of those. Someone (me) should definitely have that in their EAster Basket.

There's just something so wrong with eating the ears of a big gummy bear!
