First of all I wanna thank everyone for your kind birthday wishes on my last post!
We had a lovely dinner with my sweet Mother in Law at Mesa Rosa (I had been craving Mexican food since I booked that flight ;-)
And you know what? On my 31st b-day I had to show my ID (haha). My husband believes it's because I act suspicious (like I never had a margarita before ;-)
Well, it was yummy!
And now (drum roll, please) ... the gifts!
First of all I treated myself with a little something I sewed in the middle of the night before I left Germany.
I made so many little things for my family and all the things for myself got pushed to the bottom of the list and I that fabric had been staring at me. So, I thought, just DO IT (I couldnt sleep anyways!)
Originally I wanted a little pouch for my comfy headphones and the ipod and then it turned into a big enough pouch to fit all of my cables, card reader, headphone, even my not so small digicam ...
Here it is:
Before I left Germany my Mom gave me this:
Any ideas of what it could be?
It's a PASSPORT COVER!!!! Yay! I spotted it recently in a book store and fell in love with the silhouette sights, the map, the old style... I told my mom about it and she heard me ;-)
It comes with a name tag for the suitcase, too. Ever since I saw passport covers in the States I wanted one. Unfortunately the American ones dont fit German passports :( I had to find out the hard way!
Now, lets come to the bestest gift EVER! And it was a huge surprise, too. It is very hard to surprise me! Although I dont do any peeking, people always mess up and I'll know about my gifts even if I dont want to.
Are you ready?
My MIL picked this gorgeous cover to go with it. It's super special. And isn't it cool how both of my moms had almost the same idea? They could not have talked to each other since one speaks only English and the other one only speaks German ;-) I would have picked it myself! Can you tell I love covers?
And Lynne, I already got a sample of The Drunkard's Path on it!
