Wishlist Wednesday and a Pay it Forward of Some Sort (but not really?)...Read on!

I have a lull at work, so I thought I'd post my Wishlist Wednesday!

1. Warm and Sunny Weather! I live 20 minutes from Malibu and CAN NOT wait to take advantage of it this year!


2. I've been obsessing over Lilly's new arrivals and am in ♥ with this pattern. I want it all!

3. I want to lose 2 pounds this week! I think I've hit a plateau with Weight Watchers and I can't seem to get motivated to push past it. I only have 6 pounds until goal (I've lost almost 13 pounds since the beginning of the year) and I know once you have less to lose it takes longer to come off. But I can't completely blame my plateau on that alone. I am exercising less than before and I've stopped tracking almost completely. I need to get back in the swing of things.


-----------------------------------

So I know I've announced the winners of my giveaway already (ladies, your packages will be in the mail no later than Friday of this week) and I'm seriously soooo sad that not everyone could be a winner. I know a lot of you really wanted to win (that's the way I feel about every giveaway I enter) so I've come up with the next best thing.

First a little background about me: in college I was secretary of my sorority - not because I wanted to call roll or type up minutes, but because I wanted to send people notes and little treats to their school mailboxes! Now, the year after my secretarial duties were over, my sorority created a position just for that! I had so much fun sending letters, notes, and goodies to my sisters! But since I'm not in college anymore I just don't have as many opportunities to use my abundance of stationery and I have fewer reasons to buy the cute little things I see when I'm shopping (mainly because all of my *great and best* friends who I would give cute things to are back home in GA).

Anyway, I want to do the same for my bloggy friends! If you are interested in receiving a card/little treat by snail mail, simply e-mail me your information. If you've been reading my blog then you know I won't be sending any junk or cheap trinkets! I can't promise a time frame that your little surprise will be sent, but if you send me an email then you are guaranteed to receive something from moi at some point in time in the *near* future!

I guess this is kinda like a Pay it Forward, but everyone who wants to can win. And you're not really required to do anything for anyone in return, but it's certainly an option if you choose to do so!

My e-mail is sweetteadiaries {at} gmail {dot} com.

I hope to hear from some of you soon!

*Update - Thanks so much for everyone who has expressed an interest in my snail mail idea! I'm so excited to start sending all of you ladies something! If you are thinking about signing up, please do! Also when you send me your information, please include the location of your blog because I want to snoop around a little and send you something that you'll enjoy!*

What a great idea!!! A few of us in town trade random gifts every once in a while just to put a smile on the other persons face. I picked up an initial notepad for my sister today and I'll mail it to her work in a week. :) I'll email you but more because I would love to do this for others too. :)
