Saved by the Hop

No, I didn't mean to put bell, or hops... though a beer does sound good right now :).  I have some Big Moose Ale in there from Saranac that may or may not be calling my name.  Of course, now I am rambling.  I was in a blog brain freeze when my friend at Domestically Seasoned once again saved my butt!  She is hosting a Random Acts of Kindness Blog Hop.  Basically, she is challenging each of us to perform Random Acts of Kindness and hopefully that person will carry on with another, and another, and another.  You get the picture.

As it turns out, I did a Random Act of Kindness just today!  Mini-Me were waiting patiently in line to do a return at Old Navy.  The woman in front of us was doing quite a bit of shopping, for twins if I heard correctly.  Her sale was almost complete when I remembered coupons in my purse.  They were for $30 off $100 purchase or $15 off $50.  Honestly, I don't think I ever spend that much there because I tend to shop the sales, so I offered her my $30 coupon.  Someone might as well take advantage, right?  She must have thanked me 5 times before leaving the store.   It certainly made me smile, so I did it again in Gymboree.  Hey, these coupons come to me, and I can only shop so much.  I like to see others get a deal too!

But I do definitely want to do more, and I will from now through the New Year.  Who's with me?  Just go to Domestically Seasoned and sign up.  She has some fun ideas ready for you to try too.  You don't even have to come up with them on your own!

In the meantime, tonight is the last night to register for my Funbites Giveaway.  You don't want to miss it!  Go here, now!


  1. I love the idea of random acts of kindness. How sweet of you to share your coupons.

  2. I did the same thing at Target this week as I knew I wasn't going to use the coupon. Feels good to help others, no matter how small the gesture!

  3. We miss you! Well, at least I know I do...Hope everything is ok :)
