I have a prize ready for next weeks giveaway!

It started many years ago with my sister and myself. We would gather things from our houses and stores then stuff them in a box and send it off. We simply call this a box, nothing fancy so not cute names. Anyone who knows me knows I have a dorky name for eveythings and I LOVE acronyms. I give my friends these 3-4 letter acronyms or goofy nicknames. Here are a few examples of some of my acronyms:

BFF = Best Friend Forever (duh!)
SFF = Stalker Friend Forever (long story, maybe one day I will blog about it)
PLP = Platonic Life Partner
BFL = Bestie For Life
BMF = Bestest Mommy Friend


ILYF = I Love Your Face

I could go on all day with my goofy shorthand. I just love them. What can I say? You see you have to be ultra specialinmy book to get a acronym and sometimes it takes a long time to fit an acronym with people. For those who don't get acronyms they have silly nick names like Taco or Beckerz.


Oh yeah, back to the box thing. Over the years the tradition has been passed on to several of my friends, every now and again we send these boxes filled with random crap. These boxes are so wonderful to get! I love seeing the crazy things that my friends pick up while they're thinking of me or the junk they toss in. The last box I received was from my sister and the contents included matches, a ring, 4 tampons, 3 candy bars, coasters, some hair ties, a book, a solar key chain, some lotions, sea shells, a post card, and a bunch of other stuff. I've decided that I'm going to do this for one of my followers. You won't know whats in the box but I promise there will be at least 10 things in the box. It will be fun! I'm still trying to decided if I want to do a more followers giveways or just a random commenter. Iwill figure it out by next Friday!

  1. that box thing is a really cute idea. we did that at work accidently about 2 yrs ago. a long time co moved to NYC and it started by sending one thing they needed and it turned into a time capsule thing. we all added random ass shit and just sent it all. they got a can of soup, a hat, a toy from lost & found, a lesbian murder mystery cruise book(also a L&F item)anyway you get the picture.
