I have learned….giving is just as much fun as receiving!
I finished my Operation Christmas Child Box-and took TERRIBLE pictures-but it was great! I had so much fun picking stuff out for a little girl! I wish I could show you the finished product but I had too much stuff in the box and couldn’t close it. Andrew wouldn’t let me open it after he got it closed! And I dropped it off between my night shifts so I wasn’t even entirely awake lol.
I packed the tote box with doodle paper, erasable pencil crayons, markers, a picture book, brush and comb, socks, underwear, toothbrush, hair ties, veterinarian Barbie, 2 t-shirts, a mini pair of yoga pants, candies, and a teddy bear.
A girl at work convinced her whole platoon to donate a box! Andrew and I are thinking about donating a boy and a girl box next year.
I have learned….that bloggers can be bad influences 😉

Nail appt is TOMORROW.
