Unexpected Gifts

My point is sometimes the best gifts come in really surprising packages. -Meredith, Grey’s Anatomy

Walking Buddy invited me over about 3 weeks ago for a night of couponing. How cute is that? She bought me a binder and showed me how she organized her coupons. Then we happily clipped away at our coupons over girl talk, interspersed with interruptions from her Little Man showboating for his mom’s attention. Her baby on the other hand was perfectly content getting cuddles from yours truly.

Then WB surprised me with a bag especially for Roo! It was full of diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, lotion, a bottle, all kinds of things. She had also added a newborn outfit that never fit her youngest. I am feeling very lucky to have such a sweet new friend!

Then this past Sunday we met up again to hang out and go for a walk. It’s great practice for Monkey to be around little ones, and good practice for me too. This time she gave me a giant bag full of maternity clothing as I was saying goodbye. I’m pretty sure I may not have to shop for anything except bras for this pregnancy. She truly is the sweetest person. I’m definitely going to have to pay it forward!

    I so need to get better at cutting coupons. I can’t ever seem to find any good ones, anymore!!

    Stop by my blog tomorrow for my first link up 🙂


    Oh that is SO sweet!
    For a person to give you that stuff is actually more appreciated I think that people realize…If it wasn’t for my friend from way back I wouldn’t have had 75% of my newborn clothes all the way up to 5 or 6 years of age. Seriously. She gave me everything. I love her for it. 🙂
