I vow to become a better person.

I am now the proud owner of a CHI hair straightener (this would be one of those times I should link a picture, but again, too lazy to learn how to do that). How does one unpaid mother of a baby that is now on formula afford such a luxury? Well, she doesn't. Someone bought it for me and left it at my hair salon as a random act of kindness! I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO SURPRISED AND HAPPY. This ranks up there with my baptism, wedding, and births of my children. On top of that, for the second year in a row someone has put Christmas lights on our house while we were at church. It is so thrilling to come home on a cold winter night and see your house lit up. It is even more thrilling to not have to be the one to do it. These wonderful gifts have inspired me to pass it on (not the CHI, the kindness thing). While I may not win a Nobel Peace Prize anytime soon, I promise to not steal anything else from my own child. How's that for a start?

those are two amazing acts of kindness...a chi, seriously? Wow! I think I'll commit to doing a RAK this week too!

Wow ~ a Chi is not the normal range for a RAK gift! Enjoy it ~ I can't live w/out mine!

Summer, I got to your blog from Gena's. I wish I had known you better in college...love reading your blog! It totally cracks me up and I can relate to a lot~ not the part about recieving gifts, but Starbucks, and formula, and mommy stuff. :-) Your kids are cuties!

Could you leave your "mystery friend" a note with our address on it? We really need our Christmas lights put up. :-)
I am excited for you to have a new Chi!! I wish I could have one!!

Even though I know who sent it to you, can I claim sending it? Or maybe I put up your lights.....:)
