bloggy stuff, shopping

Free Hot Chocolate for me and YOU!

I love office/school supplies with such a passion it’s almost embarrassing.  Every time I go to Target or Walmart I always take a stroll down the office/school supplies aisle to drool, ooh & ahh.   And I have to keep myself completely out of big box office supply stores like Staples or there could be a scene.  I may end up rolling around in a pile of sticky notes.

You can imagine my *squee* glee when Carolina Pad sent me a big box of products from their Hot Chocolate line to try & review. Hot-Chocolate2I am so in love with these products.  Seriously.  I will have a big, thorough review for you in a couple days.

  1. Woo hoo! That’s awesome! I’ve bought Hot Chocolate binders and notepads for me and for the kids. They’re terrific. Thanks for entering me!

  2. just wanted to let you know I LOVE the Hot Chocolate collection. I use the smaller notepads as journals. Our whole adoption journey is in the purple striped pad!!
    (loving the mountain pics too. soooo pretty)

  3. Enter me! Love all stationary stuff– even though I don’t write anyone. I am a post it junkie. twitter ID: hollywhowho

  4. omg, what cute stationery stuff! I too, am definitely at risk of rolling around in their post-it notes at Staples. :-p LOL! Great giveaway!

  5. I LOVE the Hot Chocolate line–I use the small notebooks for work! So much more fun than a plain old spiral notebook.

  6. Everybody always told me I should own a stationary store, but I was of the opinion that you can’t make money when you keep all the inventory. Please enter me!!!

  7. Oh wow, LOVE IT.LOVE IT.LOVE IT.!!! And just the name of this line makes me drool!!! (I’m also going to Facebook right now to post for another entry!) Awesome giveaway Shannon & Carolina Pad – thank you!

  8. I do the same down the office supplies aisles! What a bunch of cool supplies! Thanks for the giveaway…good luck everyone!

  9. This is really cute stuff. My daughter would love to use some of this stuff–at 4-years-old she is already in love with cute notebooks & sticky notes! She loves to draw on them. This would be an awesome thing to share with her.

  10. i am in love. love, love, love this stuff! and i was just thinking how great it would be to win because i would use all of the goodies for my Secret Agent L missions. How wonderful it would be to wrap up each of these goodies and leave them in random places for unsuspecting people to find, just to brighten up their days! LOVE IT!

    p.s. your blog is SO FUN! and pugs? *SQUEE!!* too cute for words. i just want to smooch them up all over!

    okay–off to enter via twitter! thanks for this amazing give-away!

  11. I love your blog. You always have something interesting posted. I loved your post on your Las Vegas trip. I am also a bit of an office supply junkie. I will buy post it notes and then save them because they are tooooooo cute to use… how weird is that? Please enter me in your free give away….even though I never win

    1. Dude…that is SO not weird. I have a huge box of stationary, including sticky notes, that I haven’t used because it’s all too cute and what if who I send the stationary too doesn’t think it’s as cute then it was wasted. I should get therapy.

  12. You have no idea how much of an office supply geek I am too! I am so glad to know that you are one as well. Seriously, one of my favorite gifts when I was young was this cute desk set. I was so excited. I am the same way at Target, Staples, anywhere like that. It’s crazy! 🙂
