I'm headed for San Diego today to attend a conference for work, but I wanted to show off some items I purchased that will go in a gift basket. Each office was asked to bring items from their area and they will be put into baskets and then auctioned off.
Bottom row from left to right: Dish towel, book that Jake's grandma wrote, outdoor thermometer, pear cookbook, bottle of wine inside a wine bag, top row: word game in a little pear bag, Lake County walnuts, Lake County honey, and a magnet.
I had a lot of fun finding things around town. I mean, who wouldn't want to shop with someone else's money during their work day?!
Speaking of gifts, I received a package from my mom yesterday. You know how she loves those flat rate boxes! Here's what was inside:
Cooking ingredients that I couldn't find at my local grocery store, cat treats and a toy mouse for Sydney, Girl Scout cookies, two of the best Rice Krispy treats known to man, and a bag of homemade heart cookies. Not pictured: An OSU collar for Zulu and a little OSU football for her to play with. I'll get pictures of those later. She was already wearing the collar and playing with the football when I took this picture. Both of the pets love their treats and want to thank their grandma. We're also thankful for our treats!
