Pour Some Summer Goodies on Me!!!

I recently participated in my first blog swap and I'm so glad I did. I got paired up with an absolutely lovely woman and we exchanged summer goodies. It was great. There is nothing like getting home after a long, boring day of work to find a box full of great gifts - just for you! Here's a look at the pure awesomeness that I received.

First let's talk about that cup. Oh lordy, that cup is AMAZING. I'm kind of a drinking glass snob. I HATE cups that sweat. I drove my parents crazy growing up because I never used a coaster - now I don't have to!!!! I have used this cup EVERY day since receiving it. Admit it - even iced water tastes better in a really cool cup! When I first got it I thought I was going to have to hide it from Chad. He has deemed it the perfect whiskey cup. He's yet to get to try it out. Angie also included a Texas Margarita recipe which I'm sure will taste fantastic in that beautiful, double wall cup with the big plastic straw!

Then there were the flip-flops. So shimmery and summery. I don't have a lot of purple in my wardrobe yet, but thanks to this great gift, it may become my go to summer color. I already found the perfect shirt to match them. And speaking of shimmery - that lip gloss is so great - gives a super slick look!

I was in serious need of some new nail polish because I was in a dark depressing color rut. I have no fun colors at home. Only almost black purples, and almost black reds. I'll be donning this fun color all summer...and thanks to the toe separaters and file, my nails won't look too jacked from an at home pedi.

The best part of this whole blog was getting to "meet" Angie. She's an amzing woman with some of the most adorable kids I've ever seen. I had never read her blog before but now I'm hooked. I really admire her family's love for getting outside and playing together, not just hunkering down in front of the tv like so many families do these days (including ours FAR too often). If you get the chance to check her out, please do!

Thanks to Aly, Lindsey, Chelsea and Molly for hosting this great swap and
Thanks again, Angie, you certainly helped get my summer off to a great start!


  1. Love all your loot, and that cup?! I need to find one asap, maybe it would help me want to drink more water instead of so much diet dr pepper?! HA!

    Thanks again for the stroller loan girl, much appreciated!

  2. I am so glad you liked everything! I hope it isn't too much purple...haha!

    I'm glad our first blog goodie swap went well! I can't wait to do it again. And how sweet of you to thank all the swap hostesses. I forgot to do that :)

  3. Cute cute stuff! I love the flip flops.
