Pay It Forward Giveaway!!

A few weeks ago, a Pay It Forward giveaway popped up in my Reader from UnplugYourKids. Basically, she won a giveaway from another blogger and then paid it forward by offering a giveaway on her blog. Not only did I get to have fun going to the mailbox waiting on my surprise, but my surprise was coming from FRANCE! MomUnplugged was getting ready to go on a trip with her family and promised a little token from France! How exciting!

At the time we still hadn't moved and didn't know we would be moving so quickly, so I gave her my old address. Talk about anticipation! :) I finally received my package from France that also made it's way across north Alabama. I enjoyed just looking at all the stamps on the package! (I live a sheltered life! LOL!)

I wish I had been of sound mind to take a picture, but in the midst of the move I just wasn't. She sent me a lovely postcard and bookmark. The special surprise was a stone that you spritz with cologne/perfume/other scented item and place in your drawer. It is engraved with the word Amitie' which means Friendship. That engraving is very special to me, coming from her, because she was one of the first bloggers I really got in contact with. I've always enjoyed her blog and she's always been such an encouragement to me to spend more quality time with my kiddos! Thank you, MomUnplugged!

So, now it's my turn!! Or rather, your turn!

The first three bloggers that comment on this post will receive a surprise from me in the mail. You must be a blogger that is willing to Pay It Forward on your blog. It doesn't have to be anything big or expensive, just a little something to spread some happiness.

I haven't decided what I will be sending as my surprise...I guess it will just have to be a surprise!
