I’ve never really been surprised at the generosity of people. In my experience my family and friends have always been giving and generous with their time, talent and even hand-me-downs (just FYI, I LOVE ‘hand-me-downs…)
People you’ve never met in real life? Giving you things?
It’s still surprising to me.
Not because I think it’s weird or would turn my nose up at anything people are willing to give me. I’m just surprised that they would extend their generosity to ME, someone they only know through the internet.
But alas, it happens because guess what…. my internet friends are THE BOMB.
Sue from My Home in Wellington sent me these cute things (as well as a charm that is not pictured because it’s so tiny). I won a little contest on her blog a while back and received this awesome New Zealand tee (for me!) as well as the darling hat and socks for Baby K. How sweet is that? And from across the world. Very cool.
And, my friend 3Boys1Mommy (linking you to her twitter profile b/c I’m not sure she even blogs anymore!) sent these for the baby. A Sophie the giraffe teether which I’ve heard WONDERFUL things about and is so cute and this great peacock toy (that is NOT a hand-me-down from her brothers – YAY!)
I’ve also received several awards from blog friends lately and I have to say it’s kind of hard right now to follow all the rules for them but I do want to acknowledge the bloggers who “gifted” me with them and maybe someday I’ll get around to passing them all on… please don’t think I’m a slacker.
This pretty little gem came from Kirsten at Living in a Girls World. Isn’t is just the cutest? I’m supposed to award it to some newer blogs I read so I guess I have to give it right back to her! : )
I will also send it on to Erin at The Mother Load who quickly became a bloggy friend!
Kim at Prairie Mama (who I just bought a beautiful baby sling from -she’s so talented!)
Lady Mama who just seems way cool, I have to say.
I also received the Honest Scrap award from Mendie at The Little Ladybuy That Could.
* I am a little A.R. about how I like my towels folded and therefore my husband refuses to fold them.
* I regret not traveling abroad in high school or college.
* I fantasize daily about moving back ‘home.’
* I spank my children on occasion (dont’ judge me, or do, I don’t really care…)
* I consume WAY too much sugar (but y’all already knew that one, didn’t you??)
K, that’s all I got today…
And sorry, but not passing this one on right now…
And the last award comes from my pal Erin at The Mother Load.So cute and sweet of you Erin, thank you!
I could go on and on…
Thanks to ALL of my wonderful blog friends for the gifts, awards and for being there to read the every day happenings and goings on in my life. It all means a great deal to me.
