  27. says

    Oh, the footie socks from PYP! I had ordered some of those but found out a couple weeks after (once they were long gone) that there’d been some sort of problem with their system and my order didn’t get fulfilled. =( I ordered them while on an extended vacation and so when I got the email saying there’d been a problem and I was being refunded I was SO bummed cause I was totally expecting them to have already been delivered and waiting at home for me. Would so love to win this because everything in the basket is great but silly as it might be I especially want those socks!
