Make Kate’s Stuff Your Stuff!

CATEGORIES: Kate, The Scoop

kate's stuff 2

So I have kind of a weird life. My husband works for Procter & Gamble, so we frequently get huge amounts of P&G products (usually laundry products, like Tide, Bounce, Downy, etc., but also diapers and wipes, deodorant, and CoverGirl foundation for people with a MUCH darker complexion than I have). Then we also frequently get blog-related products to sample, many of which I end up using and loving and also many of which get shoved into a corner cupboard somewhere.

Here’s the deal: I need to downsize. So I want to give someone some of my stuff. I don’t know whatΒ stuff it will be yet, but I can pretty much guarantee it will include more dryer sheets than you’ll ever know what to do with and some cookbooks (I have waaaaaaaay too many).

Here’s what I do know:

  • It will be at least $100 worth of stuff.
  • It will all either be new (I’m not going to send you a half-used bottle of shampoo) or like-new (it might be a kitchen tool I’ve only used once or twice and don’t have space for.)
  • You may not want it all. In that case, you are more than welcome to make your newly-acquired stuff someone else’s stuff.
  • I will try and tailor at least some of the stuff to your own needs/wants/interests. Like I said, I have a lot of stuff.

If you want to take a box of stuff off my hands, tell me a random fact about yourself. Like, for instance, if I were entering, I might say, “Hi, I’m Kate, and I can’t buy metal appliances without touching them first because there are some types of metal that I can’t touch without getting the shivers.”

A few rules:

  • The giveaway ends the evening of October 9. Β I’ll pick a winner and announce it in my post on Friday, October 10.
  • It’s only open to residents of the United States.
  • Enter with your name and an email address that you check kate's stuff


  1. Hi, I’m Sheriece. I buy tons of sewing patterns that I have yet to ever use…. Also, I dream of a super short pixie cut, but I have yet to get the guts to actually go through with it.

    1. Do it! I’ve worn a super short pixie for years and LOVE it. {and get compliments on it frequently}

  2. How fun! I hail from Cincinnati–home to P&G. Random fact: I’m on my 3rd Kitchen Aid mixer in 11 years. Either the quality has gone down, or I bake way too much!

    1. Yep! You are right! Apparently KitchenAid decided to cut their costs a bit so they could make more per piece, so internal parts are now made of… PLASTIC! If you read the nitty gritty, you aren’t supposed to do heavy duty mixing. It’s a pansy now. Since I need mine to be a workhorse, I bought a cuisinart and it’s still going strong after almost 7 years of making whole wheat bread regularly as well as cookies, cakes, muffins etc. You might want to give it a try!

      1. I buy way too many crafting supplies when I should be buying groceries, and my husband doesn’t know. πŸ˜‰

  3. I’m obsessed with seasonal/monthly/small rituals and traditions – such as getting a Salted Caramel beverage from Starbucks on the first rainy day of the season.

  4. i love green veggie but I can’t cook them. I hate the way they look while they cook. If I want a green veggie my mother makes it and brings it to my house (I only live a mile away)

  5. I’m NaDell and I LOVE doing laundry. I’m obsessed with having it all done and put away so that only the pajamas we are wearing and bedding we are on is not clean. Good thing I’m a night owl…

    1. OMG me too!! I also get a weird satisfaction out of going as long as I can without using the dryer… like line-drying everything, including socks. #laundrynerd

  6. Hi, I’m Dezi and I would choose to sit on my bed and read a book over going to a party, watching tv or pretty much anything else.

    1. Hi Dezi, I’m Cheryl and I feel the same way! In fact, I love books and reading so much that over the past few years I have created my own library in my basement with over 4,000 books!

  7. I look forward to making my monthly menu. Like crazy excited because I LOVE making lists! and then I only make like 3 recipes from it because either a) I found other recipes or b) I was lazy. (Most likely ) or c) hubby thinks he will die if he has to eat any of the things on the menu. I give myself pep talks about sticking to the menu every single month and then it just doesn’t happen. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves about myself.

  8. I love to bake but hate to cook -any shortcut I can find for cooking will make me smile!! I also love to do the dishes – yes I am strange that way!!

  9. Tend to buy pantry staples like boxed stock and cans of diced tomatoes as if I was feeding an army. Then when I finally stop I’m overwhelmed by my stock pile enough to stop. But when I start running out or running low. Throws me into a panic πŸ˜›

  10. good morning! I’m Christy and I’m awake at 4:45 am because I just had a dream (nightmare) that our baby being born in 4 days was a girl even though they told us boy. I didn’t wake up for 2 weeks and my husband had named her Angel! I also really dislike those tree shaped air fresheners. The texture & smell…yuck!

  11. Hi, I’m Asia and I like warm hugs! Haha, not from strangers though… Creepy. Aaaanyway, a random fact about me is I hate cream cheese, mayo and sour cream but love all things cheesecake and onion dip (which doesn’t say much for mayo).

  12. Hello, my name is Marlie and I’m addicted to coffee. I have started collecting various brewing methods. Next on my lost is an espresso machine!

  13. These comments are fun to read! My name is Michelle, and I am so glad it’s getting cooler out! I haven’t felt like baking all summer, but hopefully pumpkinpalooza will respark my interest!

  14. Hi I’m Elissa and I win random contests — I’ve won some nice big ones like a flat screen TV, a $500 spa package on a cruise and also things like a lunch box, giant stuffed animals and free tortillas!

  15. Hi, I’m Fran and the worst thing I ever did in the kitchen was when I was 10 and substituted tartar sauce in a recipe for cream of tartar. My family still teases me about it…more than 30 years later…

  16. I’m Sandy and I love cook and quilt. I’d love to help you downsize! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  17. I’m Melanie and I’m an Excel spreadsheet addict, as in I might need an Excel addiction intervention. I even have a (very large) Excel spreadsheet of all the OBB recipes I want to try, with color coding for recipes I have tried, and cell comments for my family’s opinion of them (always awesome πŸ˜‰ and little notes about how long I cooked it for or any minor tweaks I made for spiciness, seasoning, etc. It’s one of my favorite spreadsheets (because it’s perfectly normal to have a favorite spreadsheet πŸ™‚

  18. Hey Kate! I am sort of a kitchen hack. I do not follow recipes and prefer to wing it. Sometimes we have delicious meals, and sometimes it’s a “never again, what have I done” dinner πŸ˜‰

  19. Hi! My name is Amrita and I can’t stop collecting pretty housewares that I never use. Instead I put them on display around our house, except we’re starting to run out of space for that…But you never know when we might need to hold a party with vintage tea cups? Thanks for doing a giveaway πŸ™‚

  20. Hi, I’m Lynness, and my husband would say I am all about saving time and money, but I would probably say I love to read (like Dezi- more than going to a party or watching TV) and I’m a picky eater…

  21. Hi Kate, I’m Sam! When I go grocery shopping, I like to pick items from the back of the shelf so they don’t feel bad about not being placed in the front.

    1. I do this, too! I honestly thought I was the only one to get the back items for that specific reasoning!

  22. I love to collect recipes. I don’t make a majority of them. I just like to hoard them and read them. Sometimes I read recipe books for fun.

    1. Hi I am Holly and *squeal* I do this too. I technically don’t like reading but I will sit and read cookbooks.

  23. Hi Kate – I’m Meredith, and making pie crust absolutely terrifies me. It sounds so hard. It takes so much time. I’ll never get the butter crumbled in correctly. I avoid making pies altogether which I feel bad about because it’s my husband’s favorite treat.

  24. Greetings! I’m Nina and I love to read self-help books and manuals. I love building stuff with instructions that involve a screwdriver and allen wrenches (i.e. bookshelves, chairs, cribs etc.).

  25. Hello, I’m Melanie. I have a hypo plastic thumb. That means my left thumb is shorter than normal and I’m missing the muscle that moves it. It makes it so I can not snap my fingers because my thumb won’t let me!

  26. Fact about me: I think I enjoy the ritual of preparing my morning cup(s) of coffee more than I like drinking the actual coffee.

  27. Hello! I’m Shaylee and I do not have a uvula (the hangy thing in the back of your throat). They accidentally removed that too when I had my tonsils out!

  28. I LOVE cookbooks and I buy them or borrow them from the library. I ooh and ahh over the pretty pictures and bookmark what looks good, but I won’t end up actually making those dishes. :-/

  29. Hi there! I’m Kristi and I mentally go through the produce department alphabetically when I am trying to fall asleep. Asparagus, bok choy, canataloupe. . . . .zzzzzz! Thanks for the chance to win your stuff!

    1. Me too! A few months ago I read that this was a good way to fall asleep. So for the past few months, every night I pick a different topic (produce comes up from time to time!). I rarely make it past the letter M.

      I can’t win this (I’m not in the US) but I wanted to say I love how nerdy everyone is…I have so much in common with so many of you!

  30. Hi! Random fact: when having a conversation, the words appear in my mind as though they’re being typed as we speak.

  31. Hi, I’m Kelli. I once saw you guys at Time Out For Women in Harrisburg, PA, and I was certain that if we met in real life we would be best friends.

  32. Hi! I’m Coco, and I am addicted to the flowing, soft pants that are so popular right now – I can’t stop purchasing them!

  33. I’m addicted to “to do” lists. Sometimes when my husband is out for a guys’ night I love it because I can out my daughter to bed and work on my “to dos” all night without him getting in the way.

  34. Hi Kate. My name is Natalie. I love to look at food blogs, even though I don’t love cooking; especially when I have to cut up meat. I do love baking.

  35. Hi! I’m Stephanie and I have to have everything in a place. And stuff must go back to that place.

  36. Hi, my name is Crystal and I’m jealous of Elissa because I never win anything. I like to cook and bake but more so on the weekends because after a long day at work I just want to relax.

  37. My name is also Kate. My husband, 2 kids and I live n a tiny 1-bedroom apt in brookyn so I have no business entering this but I can’t help myself.

  38. Hello Kate. My name is Anthony, I am a father of six(Brady Bunch style), and I frequent your blog for the great ideas to help me keep it fresh in the kitchen for everyone!

  39. I have a crazy sensitive sense of smell. It was great when my kids were little and I needed to find that random piece of fruit they left somewhere in the house, but now that my boys are bigger, it’s sensory overload!

  40. Hi, I’m Laurel. When I moved cross-country, among the things deemed “too precious to ship” were my Crock Pot, food processor, and wine glasses (I crammed them into my Honda Civic).

  41. Hi, I’m Stephanie! I bake cookies and other treats when I’m trying to avoid doing chores that actually need to be done, like cleaning the bathroom. Plus, if I’m having company for dinner, I always plan the dessert first, and fit the rest of the meal around it πŸ™‚

  42. Hi, my name is Erica and though I don’t look like a hoarder I am one. I’m a digital hoarder. I’m obsessed with lists and saving every recipe I ever come across. Luckily my phone helps me hide this obsession. The app on my phone allows me to store as many recipes as I’d like, though I’ll never be able to cook them all!

  43. I’ve always wanted to go to culinary school, but I’m very picky so I don’t think I would make it very far!

  44. Hi,I’m Jessica. I’m a momma with two toddlers A’s a job. I don’t mind laundry but I hate dishes. I do love love cooking fun things though!

  45. I’m Holly, and while I LOVE to read cooking magazines and food blogs and cookbooks (cover to cover, like a novel), I detest actually cooking. I tell The Hubs “cook this!” and he does. Win, Win.

  46. Hi I’m Lisa and I’m always paranoid that I left the oven/hair straightener/iron on. I have to check like 4 times before I am able to chill out about it.

  47. Hi! I’m Lindsay, and I got married this summer! I’m 6′ and my husband is 6’6″, so we enjoy making our home tall-people-friendly by putting things on top shelves, enjoying our California King bed, and installing extra tall shower heads.

  48. My name is Alicia and I have a thing about toilet paper… If we don’t have at least 18 rolls of mega rolls, I feel really nervous that we are going to suddenly run out and something bad will happen.

  49. Hi, I’m Malia and one of my adventures this year is to celebrate bizarre, unknown, crazy, silly holidays. Did you know this Saturday is Toot Your Flute day, World Card Making Day, National Vodka Day, Frugal Fun Day and National Taco Day? Yup, I’m having a party to serve vodka (cosmos!) and tacos, will bring out my flute for everyone to toot and the card-making supplies to make cards. Oh, and not buying anything for the party — it’s Frugal Fun Day, after all!

  50. Hi, I’m Kathi. I avoid bookstores because I’m like an addict when I go near them– I can’t stop myself! At one time I had nearly 2,000 books, but I had to downsize when I moved. I still have over 300 in storage that I can’t possibly live without.

  51. Hi, I’m Megan and I would make blankets out of dryer sheets if I could…smells so lovely! I have been known to stick them in my car, my drawers, anywhere that needs freshening…yum πŸ™‚

  52. Hi Kate, my name is Amy and I LOVE free stuff. My husband is a mail carrier and sees the end of everyone’s garage sales when they just want to get rid of things. He wanted our family to have a second mini-van so he could bring home all of his treasures (we got a RAV4 instead).

  53. Hi I’m Megan, and I LOVE to organize. When I am stressed about my own life, I go next door to my neighbors house and help her organize. She moved in with her parents to take care of them, and so she is sifting through 40+ years of their stuff. I come home less stressed after being able to sort things into give away, throw away and keep. One day I’m going to make organizing my full time job.

  54. This is so kind of you! I’m Kym and I was brought up spelling my name “KIM” but I changed it in college because I wanted to be different. It’s just a nickname, after all (I’m still a Kimberly for formal occasions). I like it and it’s stuck. My parents hate it. Still. I’m 41 and my parents think I’ll grow out of it. πŸ™‚

  55. Hi. I’m Barbara. I write my grocery lists in the way I navigate through the store. For example-I write all of the produce items first because that is the first stop. Secondly, I walk through meats, so that stuff is written right after produce, and etc. I HAVE to write things this way because I cannot stand having to go back because I forgot something. Not to mention dragging 4 little kids behind me makes me want to find the quickest and shortest way out of the store! I still write the lists this way when I shop without the kids…so that must make ME be the weird one….

  56. Hi Kate! Thanks for doing such a fun giveaway. I’m Brittany and I really hate popcicle sticks. Something about the wood makes me gag and gives me shivers. I do however love dark chocolate:)

  57. Hi, I’m Emilee and I can’t stand loud eating sounds. It drives me up the wall to listen to people eat cold cereal. But I hide it well enough that my husband just found it out after being married 9 years, and only because I told him. He loves cold cereal.

  58. Such a fun idea!
    I’m Brittany and I have weird quirks. Like if I’m eating cake it has to have frosting, cupcakes are good without frosting; if I’m eating chicken strips I like BBQ sauce but chicken nuggets or popcorn chicken I like ranch :).

  59. I pass out at the thought of blood/needles/hospitals. Imagine the miracle that I have had 4 kids!!!

  60. My name is Trina, and I am honestly one of those people that never has enough stuff. I’m always out of …everything. And it has to be because I really hate shopping. Go figure. Thanks Kate!

  61. (my mom worked for Colgate Palmolive when I was little so I totally “get” having an abundance of products and it was quite a shock when she left and I had to buy my own toothpaste!)

    Hi, I’m Kristin, I’m a wipes-aholic. Shopping carts, hotel rooms, and gym equipment are my biggest targets. I’m thankful for wipes.

  62. Hi! I’m Jamee and I don’t how this happened, but I just noticed that I am down to 1 set of sheets for my queen sized bed! I like to have more than 1 set of sheets per bed in the home.

  63. Hi! I’m Charity. I love to try new stuff, but I’m incredibly “thrifty” (my husband says, “cheap”) and don’t like to pay full price for anything. “Free” is my favorite word!

  64. Hi, I’m Heather. I got in trouble with my mom one time bc I threw some old Southern Living Magazines away. She was horrified. When people ask her for recipes it’s common for her to say something like, “it’s in the December 1988 Southern Living, don’t you have that”? She gets really confused when people confess to not keeping them all.

  65. Love this idea Kate! My name is Kristen, and I can not touch anything made with fleece because it makes my skin crawl!!!

  66. I can’t stand to touch raw poultry of any kind. If we do a turkey for Thanksgiving, someone else has to deal with taking the stuff out and putting it in the pan. The same with chicken – I have to use tongs. If I touch it, I can’t eat it. It just creeps me out.

  67. My name is Elisabeth, and I have a major weakness for limited edition flavors of EVERYTHING. We try a lot of Oreos, yogurt flavors, new ice creams, crackers, you name it.

  68. hi, I’m Samantha. I hate the feeling of loose cotton or cotton balls, so I only buy the cotton pads. I work for an interior designer who specializes in Christmas so when we are working with cotton, I have to wear gloves.

  69. I hate wasting things…that pioneer motto “Use it up, wear it out, make do or do without” is somehow burned into my soul. So I do silly things like use up the soaps from hotels.

  70. Hi, my name is Kimberly and I am obsessed with color coordination. My closet, calendar, mail…everything. Love the organization.

  71. Hi Kate, I am Tracey and I am an identical twin. My sister and I look so alike that people confuse us all the time. Apparently we also sound alike.

  72. Hi! I’m Shirley and I love to watch cooking shows and read cookbooks so I can try new recipes. (This is why I am always reading your blog and own both your cookbooks. πŸ™‚

  73. I use pinterest as a menu. My husband goes to the “menu”, selects chicken or beef, etc. And then picks what he wants me to make. This has totally changed the way we plan the week and has made meal planning sooooo much easier!

  74. I am Michelle. I am also a sheet snob. I need to get into bed and have my sheets be cool, they need to breathe and they cannot catch the rough skin on the heels of my feet or I go insane!!

  75. I love trying new recipes, especially ones from around the world. Some of our family’s favorite include Indian Butter Chicken and New Mexican Sopapillas.

  76. I have naturally curly hair and LOVE it!! Also I plan parties that I never have, I should really get into event planning.

  77. My name is Julie. I have 3 children under the age of 5 and we clean up a lot. Dishes, laundry, toys… I LOVE to cook and also love all sorts of baking tools/pans/unique ingredients.
    *Love this idea by the way!

  78. What a fun post! And the comments are super fun to read!
    Hi, I’m Sandy and I LOVE grocery stores and grocery shopping, really love it! I’ve loved the grocery since I was a child and have always thought being a check out clerk would be awesome.

  79. Hi, I’m Breanne, and I like to eat chex cereal because of the “pop” they make when pushed against the top of my mouth.

  80. People know how much I love avocados and gift me those useless avocado slicers. I literally have three. I use zero.

  81. Hi I am Hailee and I love kitchen gadgets. I am running out of space but that doesn’t stop me from buying them.

  82. I’m Abby πŸ™‚ If watching British murder mysteries was an Olympic sport, I’d be a gold medalist by now (ok, maybe not gold, but at least silver). And, I enjoying cleaning bathrooms and sweeping.

  83. I’m Sara. πŸ™‚ I have to eat things in even numbers. (2 cookies etc….but really it’s prob more like 6 cookies ha ha )

  84. My name is Lisa and I am mortally afraid of the car wash. Being enclosed in a room with high powered water shooting all around me? Ugh, hyperventilating….

  85. Hi, I’m Zoey and I love graphic design. When I see a word that I like on a plaque or poster or something, I count the serifs and lines of each letter and see if the whole word adds to multiples of five. If they don’t, then I make up different ways to break up the letter so that they do add up to a multiple of five. I don’t even know how I invented this little game for myself.

  86. Hi, I’m Rachel, and I don’t like apples in my fruit salad because all of the other fruits (peaches, pears, pineapple, grapes, berries, etc.) are soft and biting into a crunchy apple is jarring!

    Oh, and a bonus freaky fact – I have no cartilage in the end of my nose, so I can smush it flat!


  87. I love baking, hoard chocolate, get excited about new shampoos, and can’t stand perfumey laundry. I wish I didn’t have a long commute so I could cook dinner more often rather than eating my husband’s cooking (he is…an experimenter!)

  88. Hi, I’m Sharon and I LOVE office/school supplies, especially anything in fun bright colors. I can’t resist buying it once I see it.

  89. Hi! I’m Heather, and I have a non-cancerous tumor in my head.
    On a lighter note, I HATE winter (except for the holidays).

  90. Hi, I’m Jessica. I hate shopping for clothes, but I could spend hours looking around home improvement stores or kitchen stores (like Williams Sonoma!).

  91. Hi, I’m CrystalLee, and my husband says I’m a digital hoarder. Nevermind that I took 24 photos of my child within the span of 45 seconds, and most of them are blurry or he’s screaming or looking away from a camera. I just cannot bring myself to delete any of them, as they’re pics of my kid, and I want to see it all. Oh, and Pinterest my digital hoarding wonderland. πŸ™‚

  92. Hello! I’m Nicole. I love chicken, but I have a really hard time eating any kind of chicken that involves bones. I also steer away from ribs for about the same reason. It’s not that I can’t eat it, in fact, it’s usually delicious. Left to my own devices though, I don’t think I would ever purchase any meat with bones in it. I have an insanely hard time with fish for this reason.

  93. Hi I’m Aubrynn. I love sewing and baking treats. I also like doing diy projects when I have time. I recently realized I need more time for that because I have one halloween/fall decoration in my house! I need to take more advantage of naptime apparently! πŸ™‚

  94. Hello, my name is Jennifer but I also go by Jen but NEVER Jenny (blech!). I am enthralled with make up and hair products. For some reason I just love to buy them and the funny thing is, is that I hardly ever use them because I just don’t know how to apply make up all that well, so I end up using the same crap over and over again!!! oh well!

  95. I am completely obsessed with Abraham Lincoln. I’m a high school English teacher and have a life-sized cutout of him in my classroom that I routinely move to new places because it messes with my students and fellow staff members!

  96. I love treats more than anything. I could eat treats (any kind!!) at all times no matter how rich.

  97. I understand having way too much stuff! I have this obsession about collecting kids books for my kids. As a result, we now have so many books I don’t know where to put them (we already have three bookshelves full of my books and kids books)! I feel like they’re something worth collecting!

  98. Hello. My name is Liberty. I can’t have too many books around waiting for me to read, I adore anything with the word Chipotle in it and I love make up so much I get giddy inside (and probably on the outside) when I buy something new.

  99. Hi, I’m Michelle, and my husband thinks I have a problem with wearing only one shirt. Really, I just layers… and I don’t see any shame in wearing a few shirts and cardigan if it looks awesome. πŸ™‚ Also, never ask me to bring dessert because I will bring like three. Because every recipe will look too good and I won’t be able to decide… so I’ll just make them all.

  100. My name is Sarah and my favorite part of eating Frosted Mini Wheats is the bowl that you get at the end of the box when it is mostly crumbs, frosting powder, and a few big pieces left.

  101. Hi Kate! Everytime I go in the kitchen I open all the cupboards and fridge even if I don’t need anything from there.

  102. I wash all my dishes my hand. Every.Single.Meal. I own a dishwasher, but don’t use it. I find it therapeutic!

  103. I’m Ana, and Fall is my favorite season. I love the cool crisp weather (I’ve never been a fan of sunny summers) and I LOVE Halloween — I think it’s the best holiday of all. My family and I go all out for Halloween. We plan out costumes sometimes a year in advance. I start decorating for Halloween mid-September, and sometimes won’t take the decorations down until Veteran’s day (once, not till Thanksgiving). That said, I like celebrating any holiday, and try to do something a little special for each of them… but none get the kind of attention from our house as Halloween does.

  104. Hi, I’m Trulie. Random fact: The weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten is a black widow spider. I don’t remember it, and I don’t think I swallowed most of it, but I definitely bit one in half as a toddler.

  105. Hello! I am Annita and I love homemade soup and hot rolls with honey butter. I also love listening to audiobooks and riding my bike (sometimes I do both at the same time). Fall is definitely my favorite season because I love wearing sweaters.

  106. HI my name is Sarah. I love avocados, but absolutely hate guacamole – or even slightly mashed avocado for that matter. Recently, I pinned and framed a black widow for my son, who wanted to keep it.

  107. I love fall and the thing I like best is crunchy leaves. I am over 30 years old and I still go out of my way to step on a good, crunchy leaf!

  108. Hi! I’m Stephanie and I own and regularly use 3 different computers. πŸ™‚ I have a basic PC, an iMac and a Chromebook. Maybe some day I’ll downgrade to just 2.

  109. I’m Carly. I’m a Sonic Diet Coke loving, Netflix binging, Harry Potter reading mom from Vegas who is DYING for the weather to cool down and stay cooled down.

  110. I’m Rhea. I squish my skittles before I eat them because I had the scratchy squeaky feeling they make on my teeth if I don’t!

  111. Hi, I’m Kim. A random fact about me is that I do not like cheese, unless it is on Italian food (like pizza or lasagna). πŸ™‚

  112. Hello, I’m Jennifer and I am obsessed with containers. Baskets, bins, boxes…you name it (if it can hold something) I want it.

  113. My name is Rebecca and I have 2 daughters – one adopted, and one biological that was born in Brazil.

  114. Hi there! I have to always have chapstick or lipstick or gloss on my lips. It drives me crazy if they are dry.

  115. I’m Jasmine and I just discovered banana waffles. And my boys love them (I have 4 boys and 1 baby girl). I wish I could eat more banana waffles instead of cleaning my kitchen.

  116. I’m Angela and while I don’t love to cook and bake, I LOVE to eat so I do a lot of cooking and baking

  117. Hi I’m Marybeth and I have to admit that I shudder when people use loose instead of lose when they write. I just don’t understand how they know lost has one o but can’t write lose.

  118. My user name is cyndiloohoo because my first name is Cynthia and she is my favorite Dr. Seuss character.

  119. I’m Mikayla and I’m obsessed with sloths. I don’t just love sloths, I am Kristen-Bell-level-obsessed with them. I’m a teacher and a have an entire bulletin board devoted to them in my classroom.

  120. Hi, I’m Cathy and I have a very similar problem with books! I love them, I’m a book blogger and I get sent free ones (very handy) except my house is getting over run with them!

  121. Hi I’m Vanessa and I am 36 weeks pregnant with my FOURTH girl and I want to bake all of the treats you guys post on here. And like eat the whole pan by myself in one afternoon.

  122. My first baby is 2 weeks old and I am experiencing the appropriate mix of love, terror, and yoga pants. Also I am addicted to Target’s archer fans buffalo wing potato chips and that might just be wait propels me out of the house in the coming days πŸ™‚

  123. My name is Kimberly and I’m having my first baby in January. Terrified at excited all at the same time!

  124. For years, I have cut my own hair. I get tons of compliments on it, but am always hesitant to tell people I did it myself!

  125. I’m Jeanelle, I like free stuff and I love to bake…if I could bake something new every day, I would.

  126. I’m Jessica. I’m a natural redhead and have never dyed my hair, I’ve also had chicken pox twice and I’m an extreme germiphobe. πŸ™‚

  127. Hi my name is Cindy – Little Cindy is what my family calls me. I grew up in a house with two Cindy’s (Little Cindy and Big Cindy). My mother married a man who also had a daughter named Cindy, who is older than me is why she is Big Cindy, not her size. He adopted me when I was young, I changed my last name to his, thus two Cindy’s in the same house, with the same last name. When people would call and ask for Cindy, we’d have to ask big or little Cindy? Those who didn’t know us well were at a loss for words.

  128. I’m Annette. I’m reading Harry Potter for the bajillionth time because I finally convinced my husband to read it for the first time and I can’t not experience it with him.

  129. I’ve never painted my own toenails, although my toes are almost always painted. I go to the nail salon a few times a year, but mostly my husband paints my toenails. I just can’t paint them.

  130. Hi! My name is Andrea and I’m pregnant with my first baby! I’m having a little girl in January and couldn’t be more excited!!!

  131. I am completly obsessed with cookie cutters – but have yet to perfect the perfect cut out and royal icing. <3

  132. Hi! I’m amber and I am a bakeaholic. I love chocolate and all things bread, cupcakes, cookies, cakes, bars, basically anything with lots of sugar. Baking is therapeutic to me and therefore I do it almost daily.

  133. I’m having my third kid in a month. Also I can’t stand microfiber cleaning cloths because they catch on my dry skinned hands.

  134. I love mixers! I own way more than a normal person should and I have a long list that I would still like to own. It’s kind of like yard work sometimes you need a shovel (my hand mixer) and sometimes you need to bring in the excavator (my bosch). When I put it like that my husband immediately understood the NEED part!

  135. I’m Jessica and I (like Erin #36) count things. Only there’s no point to it. Like I count the silverware as I put it away in the drawer, and I count how many seconds it takes to fill up my cup with water from the dispenser (I can tell you how many seconds it takes to fill up each size cup at my house… frightening, I know).

  136. My name is kelly. I I like be mind hints (ie I cut my kitchen sponge in half to fit on my mini holder!)

  137. Hi, I’m Katie, and I count things: steps, motions, letters, everything! Another fun fact: I’m actually terrible at math…

  138. I like to eat things by the even number. For example, two cookies, not three. If I eat three, then I feel the need to eat a fourth. Weird, I know!

  139. I’m Cari and I love color-changing cups. Like so you know if the water is still cold. What a fun giveaway. Hope I win!

  140. My name is Lauri & I am addicted to baking & collecting cake stands & cookbooks. I bought an old library cart from my school, painted it, & use it to hold my ever-growing cookbook collection.
