I think it was part of a SW round, but don't remember for sure. I was having a really rough week, which had led into a really rough month. I came home to a small box, which held a bottle of Snake Charmer Rez....and I burst into tears. Just knowing someone out there had me in their thoughts made a world of difference.
Would you enjoy receiving cute but useful items like colorful kitchen utensils/gadgets, or bento supplies? (boxes, chopsticks, accessories, etc?) What about things like spice mixes (homemade, or Penzey's for example)
I love kitchen stuff. Spice mixes unless they are pepper heavy or spicy for the win!
Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear?
I wear pj bottoms all the time, and love them. I wear size M at both stores, and really love Targets Sock Monkey line. I don't currently own any Halloween PJ's so they would be great!!
What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc?
Milk, 'dark milk', and some dark. I love walnuts, almonds and hazlenuts. I don't like raisins. Don't like white.

Whole Foods - ??; Trader Joe's - milk choc covered potato chips, salt/sugar dusted dark chocolate almonds, TJ's milk chocolate truffle bar, dark chocolate covered nutty bites, jo jo's, the new cranberry juice they are advertising....
