Pay It Forword

Looky-loo at what arrived this week!! My care package from the incredibly sweet and talented Chloe! It was soooo exciting to open this box and see it so full of happy goodness. Starting with the pink tissue paper. Nothing but smiles can come from pink tissue!



I was right! A sweet note and personalized stationary. My name was even spelled correctly. Something that means the world to me as it is rare. No one ever spells my name correctly. They always always reverse the second and third letters to spell the much more common name with an entirely different pronunciation. But she didn't. It is the loveliest stationary too!!



Pink Peeps! My favorite! Does anyone else love them both fresh and stale? I open the package to eat a fresh peep and purposefully leave it open to get the other little peepy buddies stale. That's odd, right? I just love stale marshmallows. They taste better.



And a million other super duper fun goodies from argyle socks to lippy to muffin mix (remind me one day to tell y'all the store related to this muffin mix from my college days with bestie!) to flip flops to a pad of paper, English tea, and more!



Chloe, you are a doll!! Thank you soooo much for everything!! What a delightfully happy box-o-goodness!



So now it's my turn to pass on the good mail. I'm excited too- already have some fun ideas. Just leave me a comment by Tuesday April 22. I'll draw two names randomly. The catch though is that you too have to be willing to then pay it forword and share the care package love with two more bloggers. The package can be large or small- it just needs to be from you and for no good reason other than to put a smile on someones face. Comment away.... I'll let you know next week who gets to be the next two lucky duckies.

I'm commenting mostly because I was just thinking how fun it would be to make a care package and need a reason to do it. Is that sad or what?

I'm so glad you liked everything! I hope my poetry in that book wasn't too morbid for you and that you are now bopping your head along to one of the CDs!

p.s - please leave my name out of the draw as it would be silly if I won and you sent a package right back to me! Someone else deserves the pay it forward!

That is a seriously cute care package! And I tph (totally puffy heart) the argyle socks. :)

Stick a Peep in the microwave for a few seconds. It blows up slightly and toasts! I know it sounds strange, but a toasted stale Peep is the only way to eat them!
I think my sister and I tried this 15 years ago and I can't eat a fresh one, the older the better.

What a great package. I love sending and receiving good mail! It is so much fun! I LOVE stale peeps. My mom gives them to me for Easter already opened and nice and stale.
