feta cheese & surprises

Did i catch you with my witty title? it's just kinda random, oh well, i am random sometimes.
like, i've been craving and going through a phase of feta cheese. i do enjoy alot of different cheeses, mostly cheddar and tillamook makes the best cheddar cheese (imo).

Oh & I love surprises! and my cousin Richard who lives in on the east coast, called me yesterday [tuesday!] to ask if he and his mom Margo could make a surprise visit! (i didnt know he was in AZ). I said YES of course! i am glad i was home to see them both. R is in town for his nephew's high school graduation! It was wonderful to catch up for a bit.  we gabbed about so much, but both were recommending a book called , Rain of Gold by Victor Villasenor and from what they told me about the book, it's on my list! We are all booknerds! :)
me and aunt margo. i have little makeup on! she always makes me laugh.

Richard and I. He's so positive, encouraging and a real, life coach!

I hadn't seen aunt margo in years and Richard not since last summer before he moved east.. Margo assisted me in crocheting a blanket for my mom years ago and i forgot how to do it. Since she now knows where i live and her home isn't too far from me, we have a crafty day planned and i can't wait! My next goal with crochet is to make another blanket for a homeless person!

so, do you love surprises? what's the best surprise you've experienced so far? If you're a new reader here, or just happened to stumble upon this post, well you are in for a treat because i have a surprise giveaway for you! (others know i've hinted about this for a while).

Was the cheese question supposed to be an extra comment? If so - my favorite kind is Colby Jack - yes, pretty boring. But I like Gouda also, that's a little more exotic!

LOVE LOVE LOVE cheese. Can't really eat it anymore because of what it does to my skin. But I think my favorite is feta. Love putting it on salads and pizza.

I love cheese, my favorite is whatever cheese they put in fondue. YUMMY!

Side note: Cheese in France is just nasty. Just saying.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway. elf sure is awesome, isn't it?

And more importantly, I love cheese. My boyfriend is Swiss, so I think he'd probably leave me if I didn't like it :) Seriously, though, I can't get enough. My favorites are cheddar, gruyere, and brie.
