Pantipalooza 2008

It's Mindy's idea.

Every year on Valentine's Day, she makes sure that a women's shelter in her area gets special gifts. Women in crisis need many things, but most of all to remember that they are LOVED and LOVEABLE!

So THIS winter, I kept an eye out for panty sales... and took a package over to the County crisis office, explained what it was and went on my way. I got granny cotton panties, kid Disney princess panties, thongs, lacey, bikini, stripes, polka dots and solids. I took the price tags off and put then in a shopping bag. The receptionist was a little surprised.

She said, "you know, I guess I hadn't thought of it, but when a woman is running out the door with her kids, she doesn't think of stopping for clean underwear."

To my sisters out there who are going through a bad patch, my prayers are with you.

And thanks, Mindy, for reminding me to think of them...


If you have just found about it, put it on your calendar for next year!!! I am going to be sure to sign up my friends (FAIR WARNING - you will be hearing from me!)

Yea for what you did too -- and I tagged you for a meme ...

The rules for the meme are:

2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
