Hello Kitty Happy Hour #24

21 Sep

So last night, my friends talked me into waking up this morning to do a 6AM workout. OMFG it was still PITCH DARK OUTSIDE when I woke up!  Anyways, I’m glad I went because look at these awesome HK goodies they got me!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!  Now I just have to decide if I’ll actually open them up and use them, or add them to my collection! If you’re wondering why there are two oatmeal packs included with the goodies, it’s because I’ve never had hot oatmeal before (only in cookies and granola bars).  I guess here’s my chance to try them!  Thx B n SX!!!
