It Pays To Be Nice

So I'm sitting here at my desk enjoying a normal Thursday morning, when a lady I work with appears and says "I have something for you." She then extends a bag to me, and to my delight, I find a PINK (my favorite color!) Nine West Handbag, complete with a small matching make-up bag and cell phone carrier!

I felt my eyes widen as I exclaimed "what's this?!" She said I had commented on how cute her purse was awhile back (I don't recall this, but I really DO love the bag, so I'm sure this is true) and she said I could have it when she was done with it. What a pleasant surprise & great way to start my day! It even matches the shirt I'm wearing today...and my gym bag....and cell phone, mp3 player, camera, and pretty much everything else I own, lol. I'm so excited to go home and transfer everything over to my new bag!

Two other girls I work with asked why she just gave me her bag. My reply was "it pays to be nice." :)


  1. I'm going to start complimenting every purse I see now. ;)

  2. Dang that is awesome I'm nice but I rarely get presents ha. I'll keep going with it though.

  3. Cool!
    I just wanted to say I have changed my site adress - so you can see my blog in case you're wondering on:

  4. How super cool is that! You should write a card (A pink one!), and have your kiddos decorate it. I did that once (with kids I babysit for) for a thank you card to a friend and they framed it!

    I love your blog! I read a little of your training blog and am a little curious about your conditioning class. I have a journal for my workouts/diet and I know how tough it is to stay on track. Writing about it helps so much. I am not training for a triathlon, but I am hoping to join a particular USTA league in March and want to make sure that I don't get beat up too badly : )
