Raise your hand if you love surprises…
I love surprises.
But….I don’t love being on the receiving end. Being surprised is not my favorite thing. It
may be is definitely due to the fact that I was given a surprise party for my 18th birthday, and it was the worst party I’ve ever been to. My mother – God bless her – invited a grand total of 3 people: my best friend from kindergarten, my best friend from my old high school, and a guy who was basically an ex-boyfriend that I had not spoken to in nearly a year.
Oh, but here’s the kicker: It was a sleepover.
To say it was was the most awkward 16 hours of my life would be an understatement.
I’m still not sure I’ve recovered.
So to be more accurate, I love giving surprises. In keeping with that, and my general spirit of magnanimity, I wanted to give yall a surprise. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: Yall have no idea how grateful I am for your readership. Knowing that you read and hearing your feedback and seeing yall sharing posts (seeing your work shared is a writer’s love language) makes this so much fun. And when I hear that a post has made someone laugh so hard they literally wet their pants (true story) or touched them so deeply that they wept (true story) makes all of this absolutely worth it.
The past couple months, I’ve been working with Jess and the STAG team, blogging about The Bachelorette each week. It has been such a fun collaboration, with plenty of moments watching TV and wearing pajamas and thinking “How cool is it that this is my job?” And it’s been a ton of fun to hear everyone’s feedback, even from some of the contestants on the show (thank you, Twitter, for making those connections possible!). To celebrate that collaboration as well as give back to yall who have been continually visiting my little corner of the internet, I’ll be giving one reader the STAG tee/tank of her (or his) choice.
Check out all the options over at the STAG shop!
