Today is the last day to RSVP for my Favorite Things Swap.

I am completely overwhelmed with the response I have gotten thus far.

You guys are the best.

I tell ya.

I know just where to go if I want some juicy gossip spread around the internet.

I have tried to respond to each of your RSVP's.

If you did not get a confirmation email from me... like "I got your information. Thanks for participating.", chances are I did not get it.

You may want to try again.

Also there were several of you that commented on my blog that you wanted to participate, but never emailed me your information.

You need to do that.


I will start working on matching partners tomorrow.

I have not decided on my exact method yet.

I am thinking of the scientific approach.

Throw the names in a hat and draw out two at a time.

Very scientific.

Does anyone know if offers an option for this?

I hope to have your swap partners information to you by the first of the week.

Start gathering your favorite things.

It helps if you channel Maria (Julie Andrews) and sing out loud while you shop.

It worked for me.

Everyone now.... Raindrops on Roses...

Happy Swapping!!!

YAY!! I have already been thinking about what I am going to send. Too fun!!

Rach (Mommy Learns to Blog) said...

OK, I'm in for sure! Off to send you my info!

Krystyn said...

I can't wait. I think if you do random, you would have to assign numbers to everybody first.

Kristy said...

Hi! I'm a regular at Christie's site & occasionally check out some of ya'll from there. I'd love to participate in the swap! I'll be e-mailing soon.

I still need to figure out what I'm sending, but I'm excited.

Thanks, Wendi.

forgetfulone said...

This is my first swap, and I'm looking forward to it!

The Sound of Music was on tonight, so I channeled Maria.

Erin said...

Unfortunately one of my favorite things is procrastination... it's not really a favorite thing- but it just happens sometimes.

I will get in on you next cool adventure! I can't wait to hear how this turns out!

Grammy Staffy said...

Ahh, Erin must have gotten the procrastination gene from me. I also will try to do better on the next time around.

I am such a computer rookie. I tried to follow your instructions to do the comment thing but I couldn't seem to make it work. I will try again the next time I go to Erin's. She or Patrick will be able to help me. I hate to admit it but I couldn't even find where to go to edit my profile. I am computer challenged. Sorry

I have been driving my husband nuts,saying I can't wait to get my swap partner's name and go look at her blog to see what she likes,yes I know I'm to send her things I like but If I seen she really didn't like something then I'd pick something else instead. I went yesterday and got a few things already ..haha !

The Reed's said...

Well I started singing the song and here's what I got..

Raindrops on Roses and whiskers on Kittens would someone swap for my husbands tuition?

I think this would be so fun.. but as you can see college tuition right now "has" to be my favorite thing. One day when I get some monies, I will participate. enjoy and have fun!!

Cecily R said...

Yay! I'm excited!!

Hey, are we supposed to keep our partners secret or do they know? Is that a lame question? Have you already answered it and I have already forgotten? I need to go to bed...
