New goodies and a week of random compliments

Howdy ya'll! So I wanted to share a couple of exciting new purchases I've made over the last week! First up is my lovely new purse...oh how I love it so. It's hard to tell from the photo but it has some metallic threads running through it to give it some "glam". I am so happy I bought this!


Next up....Jason got me this! So now I'm so techno savvy i don't know what to do with myself! Any of you that I email with regularly can expect some illegible, non-sensical email shooting off of this bad boy starting today! LOL!


Now...let's get to the social experiment shall we! So yesterday I got an email that put me in a crummy mood. I'm not sure if that was the intention of the email or if I just took it that way. At any rate...I was stewing over it all night and still this morning.

But I thought...how can I turn this into a positive. So I thought about how words can either make or break your day. Then I thought that I would give myself a challenge to say something nice to at least 10 people over the next week. Just a random "I love your sweater" or "nice car", "what a great haircut" or other observational nice-a-ties. Something to make that other persons day. With all the gloom and doom on the news...the rigors of daily life...a little pick me up is all that is needed to make someone smile and go to bed at the end of the day feeling ok. So if you're inclined, feel free to join me in a week of random compliments...I think it will make me feel good to make others feel good!
