Just as I swore that I would not join another swap for a while, Lin comes along with her Summertime Swap. This girl is super sweet and I want to stay in her good books, so I signed up. How could I not? If you want to join in the fun (You only need to spend $15 of goodies to mail to your swap partner), sign up by this Sunday.
I made a new friend on Twitter, Tess. I am not sure how we started following each other (probably through BlushPretty) but she tweeted a photo of her gorgeous arm party. She decided to make more bracelets and sell them (but with each bracelet she sells, $1 will go towards the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure). With an overwhelming response, the bracelets sold out in a couple of days. I was lucky enough to grab three and I can't wait to receive them. The above photos are the bracelets she made for me!
Last month, I won a $30 credit for Le Mode Accessories from Much Love Illy's blog. I love winning things! I had my eye on some items but they kept selling out. Finally, I was able to get some of the necklaces that were on my wish list. I lucked out too with an additional 15% off and free shipping.
To end things off, it looks like I will be going to California next month. I have 9 days left of vacation that I need to use by the end of August. My mom and stepdad graciously offered to pay for my ticket to come and stay with them. This will be the first in a long time that I will be gone for over a week and be away from Mike. As sappy as it sounds, I am going to miss him. It will be hard for me to fly out across to the West coast without him (I'm a horrible flier but I'm getting better). He is my travel and shopping buddy so it will be weird to be going without him...It was actually his suggestion that I go to see my mom and have some mother-daughter time. Isn't he awesome?!?!?
Happy Friday everyone. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
