One month later, I have finally sorted through my BlogHer swag bags. This is a reminder to myself to follow that omnipresent organizational tip of touching something only once. Basically, pick it up and deal with it right away. Don't let it sit on the floor of your bedroom, causing kids to trip over it, vacuums to go around it, curses to be uttered, etc. for one month until you get so bothered by the stress of having to look at it that you have to give up rare free time to deal with it. You may want to take a nap during that rare free time instead.
I made some piles of different stuff, but then my sister came over and took some things for herself, lessening the loot. She grabbed a manicure kit right out of my hands and then finally expressed some interest in BlogHer, asking if she could go next year too. Free swag makes friends.
So here it is friends. Three groups of stuff up for grabs. If more than one person wants something, I'll draw a name Friday at 3 p.m. pst when I return from our annual mom and kids camping trip.
Saving Grace t-shirt (grey, size M, says "Embrace Your Grace," DVDs with the season premieres of The Closer and Saving Grace, a set of four wine glass marker things with sayings from both of those shows, a box of Good & Plenty and dark chocolate Raisinets.

Whiter Image ToGo Teeth Whitening Pen (an official product of Trump Spa in Las Vegas, I can't decide if that is a good or bad thing), a certificate for a free pair of underwear from HerRoom.com, tiny samples of Annick Goutal's Petite Cherie perfume, Estee Lauder's Re-Nutriv, two DentaBurst teeth cleaners, Soap Nuts (I had consumed a few cocktails by the time I got the explanation on how these work, but do I remember at the time it seemed amazing and mind boggling. That is to serve as a disclaimer if they are actually strange and lame, but I think they will stand up as being cool.), Mr. David's Jump in the Jumpy House CD, Brothers All Natural Banana Crisps, a Pistachi-Oh! bar from Weil/Nature's Path Organics, and of course, dark chocolate Raisinets.
Is Whiter Image really the best company name?
