Paying It Forward

Other than getting many hugs and kisses from my kids after work, I cannot think of anything better than seeing a box on my front porch addressed to ME. Not some golf item for Jason from eBay that seems to come weekly. No, a box for ME!

I barely put down my purse before ripping into this bad boy. When I opened it up, I saw this:

I love, love, love cute tissue paper. I do. I'm the one that saves it from a birthday party or just from any gift bag because I love them so much. I loved the bright colors.

Then after I smoothed out the tissue paper to save and re gift (don't be surprised if you see this in your gift bag!), I took out these goodies:

Some of my most favorite things! Clorox wipes (a must to have under every sink in my house), a Sonic gift card (I can get many 'o happy hour drinks with this!), Burt's Bees lip balm, and big hair clips for my massive, thick hair.

All of these goodies came from my friend from college (go TJC Apaches!), Angie at Just Shy Of A Y. She really pays attention to what I love! But you too can have gifts, for no apparent reason just for me passing this contest to all of you!

Here are the rules...

1) Be one of the first THREE bloggers to comment on this post.
2) You then agree to share your snail mail address with ME so I can send you a small gift handmade/purchased by ME!
3) When you receive your gift, you then blog about this game & link back to my blog in that post.
4) And most importantly, you ALSO AGREE to pay it forward and send a small gift to the 3 people who comment on your blog post.

Yep, it's that simple! So what are you doing?? Leave me a comment! Besides, you know how much I love comments!

I love it too!! How fun and such thoughtful gifts for you...do we have a time limit to get the gifts for the other people that comment on our blogs...Haha that's if I can get three people to leave a comment. That part might be tricky!! Cute idea, either way!

This is what I get for not keeping up very well with my blogs! A little late.

What a cute idea though, and how fun to get a gift unexpectedly!

Man.... this is what I get for being behind on blogland!!!! :) Great post though. You are too cute.

Just did some catch up... WAY TO GO SAMMI on the ears!!! Reagan has no concept of this, thankfully. But my thing is that she has to be able to take care of them herself, so it'll be awhile. But I am SO proud of your girl! And I loved seeing the Kulas group outside grinning at her. Too fun. :)
