Pay it Forward

UPDATE: I know there are several of our family and friends that read our blog, but don't have one of their own. The first three people who leave a comment and decide to Pay it Forward to three people in their own way will get the 'prizes.' Anyone can leave a comment, you don't have to have a blog to do so.

I'm copying this from the Pixel Fairy Princess' site:

Have you seen that movie? The simple premise of the movie is just doing someone a favor without expecting anything in return, and if you would just "pay it forward" by returning the act of kindness and generosity, then it might be possible for a global outpouring of decency toward all mankind. A blogger that I follow decided to start her own "pay it forward" project and I am blessed to be the recipient of her generosity. Now it is my turn to pay it forward.

How does it work? Here are the rules: I will send a gift (of my choosing) to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this "PIF" exchange, and who make the same pledge on their own blog. The only thing you have to do in return is PAY IT FORWARD-on your own blog. So, if you want to get a goodies from me, and are willing to do the same via your blog, let me know! (Note that you'll need to give me your real (snail mail) address... which you can do by private email.) Just leave a comment and I will get with you. So, who's up for it? I cannot tell you the smile that getting Lauren's goodies put on my face today. It has been a long and painful week as some of you know. Going to the mailbox today to find a little treasure waiting was just what I needed. Would you like to find a treasure in your mailbox?

How fun does this sound? I love getting prizes and mail! So the first 3 people to leave me a comment and PIF on their blog will get a prize!

We'll be out of town most of tomorrow and Saturday for a wedding. Landree is going to be the flower girl! I can't wait! She may get to eat her first sucker during the wedding to keep her quiet :) I need to go get some organic lolly pops. They still have sugar right? Does it really make a difference?

How much fun! I'd love to do this. I'm going to copy and paste it on my blog right now.
Have fun at the wedding. I can't wait to see the pictures. I wish we could have gotten together in Charlotte. Let's do it soon!
