I have the best friends...

Do you remember when I told you about my breakfast with Jo? Well, last week, she sent me an email telling me that she picked up some friends for me on her road trip, and now that she's home, she's going to send them to me. Now, I knew by the way she said "friends" that it was going to have something to do with penguins, which made me smile.

This morning, when I went outside to see if the damn mailman ever showed up yesterday (it obviously was after 6, cuz that's the last time I checked my mailbox!) I found a package on my doorstep. Look what was inside!!How flimmin' flammin' cute is this trio?!?!

I had just taken them out of the box and set them on my table this morning when my sister walked in the door. She took one look and yelled, "Where in the world did you get brass penguins?! Those are adorable!" I agree wholeheartedly!

Thank, Jo! You're the best. That was SO totally unnecessary, but oh, so appreciated!

Cheech, there is a cute story that goes with those. I was waiting to post it when you got them. When I saw the penguins I thought it was us three wild and crazy chicks: me you and Chris!!! Tho we never did get together the three of us to go eat or shopping, I thought it was cute. And well, who doesn't love a cute penguin? And better yet? 3? So, there ya go, my lil Chicago friend who took me in when I was all alone in that big ole city!!! You and your brother were the best tour guides and breakfast companions!!! And you better come visit here too, all of you. I mean you and your son at least. You can bring your chaperone if you want. Lol. I won't mind at all!!! Lol

Those are super cute, and I'm not even the type to have knick knacks around, but I already have a spot in mind for those! And penguins are so the "It" thing!
