Looks like we are off to a great start

So here are a few things:

Don't forget to update your blogs.(it lets us get to know each other)

Don't forget to say hi to your pal every now and then (keeps 'em from getting anxious)

Check your spam mailboxes

Check any other email addresses you may have (maybe you have a different one on your blog!)

Other than those couple of things, it looks like things are going well!

Have a great day!

Please READ this~

1. If you haven't Contacted the person you are spoiling, please contact them NOW. We have lots of worried participants this round.
2. When leaving comments on your spoilee's blog, please check the information (sometimes your real info is cached)
3. Please be patient with your hostess, some of us work, have families, etc. So if she doesn't get back to you right away, it doesn't mean she is ignoring you. I would like to remind you that this is a huge undertaking (even with 6 hostesses) and we are doing it for the love of Secret Pal.

Patience is a virtue

I wish more of you had...

But seriously, here's the new deal! I noticed that my SP was sent through the gmail account to my personal aol account. I accidentally intercepted it in the gmail account... that was at 9:04 am today. It has not shown up in my inbox, yet. So, please, please, please be patient. If you have not heard anything from any of us by Saturday night (uh, like midnight) then please feel free to send an email to (we are able to recieve there) I understand your point, and know that you are oh so very excited, but remember we are too! Don't forget to say hi to your pal as soon as you know who he/she is, okay? I am still waiting to find out everyone's status, I will let you know as soon as I know. Keep the excitement, just with a little more patience, okay?
