so easy lelly can do it!

(i swear, it's my new mantra!)

in the year 2005 A.D. (that would also be known as the year 1 B.B. - before blogging), i thought i was a pretty creative person. in the short time since then, i have been exposed to so many wonderful ideas, i sometimes don't know what to do with it all!

for example, we are currently celebrating *national laundry & linen week* here at the hotel (i know you are all super glad there was no spt challenge to go along with this theme!) throughout the week, we give little treats to our team to let them know how much we love and appreciate them.

in the year 1 B.B., i would have reached for a handy basket, artfully arranged the treats, and been very proud of my creative self. now, in the year 2 C.I.P.M.T.T.A.C. (as in, Could I Possibly Make This Thing Any Cuter), treat giving has reached an entirely new level at the hampton.

for instance, who wouldn't be exicted to find chocolate in their Mr. Clean box?

popcorn and sparkling water and comfy shoe inserts in a hotel laundry bag? oh, yeah, i'm gellin'!!

You are definitely in the could I make this any cuter stage! It's amazing what a little useless blogging can do to make us all better people! I am impressed with your cuteness.

PS, just so I don't offend anyone, I really don't think blogging is useless! I was thinking at the time of what people who don't do it would say about it!

I love the time reference as 1 B.B.(before blogging) and 2 C.I.P.M.T.T.A.C. !! These are so appropriate. How very funny.

Oh...and no, you could not have possibly made those things any cuter! What a great and fun gift to receive.
