What a HAUL!

I have to admit, some of my favorite pictures were the ones with you and the "leashes":p:D Too funny!
The flowers are called leis' (http://dictionary.reference.com/search?r=2&q=leis%27) and they are beautiful!

Can't wait to see more pictures!

What a nice swap!! I am not a coffee drinker but those coffees smell heavenly!! My husband used to buy them from the commissary when we lived in Japan :D

07-12-2007, 02:29 PM
thanks for looking :D......

thanks for the info there Anna!! ;).... I thought it was just too funny not to share....LMAO @ myself :p .......

I too am not a coffee person, but this is just yummy..... I have yet to try my experiment in iced coffee....(I like my coffee iced;)) and Iīll let you know about that......

Wow, nice haul! You got some great gifts. And I am so glad that it gave us an opportunity to see those girls. I am definitely looking forward to seeing more pictures of them. They definitely like the treatsies. :)

Ohh, I am so relieved that everything arrived in good shape! I was afraid the lung treats might get taken away...since sending meat products is a no-no. :o I couldn't bring myself to *just* send those vegetarian treats when I knew how universally well-liked the Champion Chips are!! I can see they were enjoyed! :)
I hope the toys are husky-proof. Kirkie has the same Orbee ball and just loves it!
Did the shampoo leak at all?

I loved the pictures of Jack and Maui ripping into those treat boxes. It seems like an easy enough toy to make at home...just need some thin cardboard and some yummies for inside.
I bought the smaller sized Zupreem pellets in the hopes that the Budgie and Tiel could share them....but I'm not sure if the formulations differ. That was the item that took the longest to find! Every store seemed to prefer to stock the "Trix cereal" colored varieties, hehe.
Wow, your birdie population has grown since the start of this whole thing...I would have grabbed another box of Tiel treats if I had known! ;)

You are too funny with the leash and dog toy...haha! Anna is right....those flower necklaces are known as leis ("lei" is pronounced like "lay"). They look great on you!! Now, flowers don't quite come in that shade of blue...but I thought you'd like them, lol! They are fun for dress-up games with kids too...

OK, enough blabbing from me...thanks for sharing all these great pictures! Iced coffee sounds like a great idea....I think I'll go make some now! :)

thank you.....;)

actually the shampoo came fine, no leaks at all..... and it smells great..... aaand I have two girls who need it desperately......LOL

the birdie food is great, I actually prefer the smaller sized ones, they are the same just smaller pellets.... sorry for the trouble finding those..... thanks!!

I loved everything!!!........

and meat or any food at all is a big no no here too..... but I take my chances too :P

Holy Moley! What great stuff!!! I can't help but think how :cool: it is that the swap was Hawaii/Mexico! Such a small world!

isabel, your pups are beautiful! I love your birdies too! They all look so happy with their haul!!!

LOVED your pictures! You once said that English isn't your first language, but I must admit, you have me fooled!!! Your English is wonderful! I had 4 years of Spanish and STILL don't have the verbs and adjectives, or most of it, down pat. AND, you are so pretty! Thank you so much for sharing!!! {HUGS}

07-13-2007, 11:54 AM
Wow, you got really nice stuff! Have you tried the chocolate brownie coffee yet? I bet its to die for. Your a beautiful lady. :D

07-13-2007, 01:19 PM
LOL..... this is why I love this forum even more, I can practice my english skills....:p... spanish is way hard, even I get confused sometimes :rolleyes:

thanks you for the compliments *blushes*.......

I havenīt tried the chocolate brownie yet..... but I bet itīs.........well.....*drools*...... haha........
