Good Things Come...

Good Things Come in Threes...
Good Things Come to Those Who Wait...
Good Things Come in Small Packages...

A few weeks ago, I was visiting Kelli's blog, Outside My Kitchen Window, and she had written a fun post called Pay It Forward.  It's a neat "game" where the first three people to leave a comment actually receive a gift in the mail.  Seriously!  So after squealing and jumping up and down a little bit, I left one of the first three comments for Kelli.  I patiently waited while Kelli picked out the perfect gifts.  And look at the package I just received in the mail...

*A cute spiral notebook for all of my list-making 
*A package of spring-colored pens (because no cute spiral is complete without them!)
*Some Jelly Belly jelly beans (the only
real jelly beans)
*Yankee Car Jar - Sun & Sand (so I can daydream about being on the beach on my way to work in the morning)
*A hand-written card from Kelli
*And the neatest book mark with a silver "Faith" charm

Seriously!  Thanks so much Kelli -- what a treat!  

And now -- for the best part -- I get to Pay It Forward!

Here's how to play:  Be one of the first three people to leave a comment for me. You'll need to be willing to give me your mailing address, and I will send a small gift your way. After you receive your package in the mail, write a post about it, and link back to my blog.  You also agree to Pay It Forward and send gifts to the three people who comment on your blog (remember -- only leave one of the first 3 comments for me if you are willing to send out 3 small gifts to other people!) 

Ready, Set, Go!


  1. Sounds fun! I can give you my address when I see in person - I can't wait!

  2. oh wow! I am a first time visitor (saw you on All THings Good) and decided to stop by. And I see that I am in the midst of a giveaway (someting I never win) I love to pay it forward so I would be honored if you would let me play along. :)

  3. Yippee!!! Am I one of the first 3? You know my address and I've been treated to Christie gifts so many times, I feel like I should pass it along to #4. Hmmmmmm.........
