Such A Girl Night

I had a "I'm such a girl" moment today.  Yesterday I got a package in the mail from my mom (rainbow cookies...how fantastic is that! You may have to be a northerner to fully appreciate the awesomeness of this package) and my girlfriend told me to expect a package when I got home from work today.  This was quite perplexing as I spent all weekend with her and she could have easily handed me whatever was sent to my house.  Well of course I raced home as soon as work was over to see what in the world she would have sent me (considering she sees me every weekend and at least once during the week) in the mail.  
In the mailbox was a small brown envelope.  I opened it and pulled out a CD that said To (my name), her initials and the date.  I literally said out loud, "She totally made me a mix tape!" and then read the note she sent with it.  It was the playlist of said mix tape and a hand written message at the bottom that read as follows, "I totally made you a mix tape.  Er...CD.  Enjoy! (her name)"  

I don't know what is most awesome:
1) She sent me a mix tape in the mail even though she sees me all the time
2) The mix tape is freaking amazing-it's sweet, funny and fabulous
3) I said out loud "She totally made me a mix tape" and she wrote "I totally made you a mix tape"
4) We both called it a mix tape...but clearly it's a CD

I called her when she got off work and recounted how I said that before I read her note which she thought was fantastic.  I've had a goofy smile on my face all evening.  I can't help it...it's all my girlfriend's fault :-)

my gf buys me little random things that she picks up on during conversations. Like i mentioned that i love the film WALL.E (yes!) when we first got together, and the week after she turned up with a massive wall.e mug! i also complained that i didnt have a mug big enough to make cup-a-soup, and she said she bought it cos its a wall.e mug and cos its big so i can make soup in it :)
