Last Friday, when I came home from work, there was a package waiting for me in my room. When I saw it was from Australia, I knew it had to be Ernie. Sara had offered to send him my way and I couldn't say "no". He is just too cute.
I was so excited for him to arrive at my house. Isn't he the cutest?! Anywho, what was really amazing was how he was packed and the other goodies she sent along with him.
This is what Ernie came in! Sara's Angst Bag. The bag is amazing! The bag is fabulous! I am in awe. When Sara is a world famous designer, I will be thrilled to say that I have an original!
She also included some stubbie holders*.
and some Aussie goodies! I confess that I/we haven't tried the Vegemite yet, but I will, I will. I had to ask for a recommendation on the best way to eat it. I will be sure to let y'all know what I think.
She included TimTams which I had heard of but wasn't even sure what they were. After having tried them, I now have another reason to go to Australia. I confess I was rather piggy and ate most of them myself.
I took the bag to work today and my co-workers ooh'd and ah'd over it as well. I didn't realize there was a tag on it until someone asked and we found it.
*I had previously referred to these as stubbies, but I was corrected. They are stubby (or stubbie) holders. I'll try to get that right next time. Stubbies are cans/bottles of beer (so I've been told). The holder keeps your hands from getting wet or cold and the can/bottle from getting warm from your hand.
