It's Christmas In August

I came home from work today & found a package waiting for me. I've been lucky enough to have won three giveaways (in the past month or so), yeah I know I'm super lucky. I think I should put this luck to work & play the lottery.

Ok, back to the package...so I open it up & it's my 'Favorite Things Swap' partners favorite things. I was so excited! I was partnered up with Amanda & she sent me some of the most fabulous items.

I was so glad to know that we had similar taste. Her package included the following:
- Shakespears Landlord by Charlaine Harris (author of the Sookie Stackhouse books)
- A Sudoku game (I've never played but I've been wanting to try)
-Cards/Note cards that are only found in Aberdeen, MD (I love writing notes)
- Soap: homemade from Goats milk (I love the way it smells)
- Candy: Gummie Bears, M&M's & Skittles (All my favorites)
- Cakes: they were her favs as a kid (they look sooo good, Rusty's going to steal them)
Dish washing gloves (I love them! They're all black w/black & white tiger stripes on top)
And, two really nice letters, one explaining why she sent what

I only hope that she likes what I sent her as much I like what she sent me :)

Also, I received the necklace I won from a giveaway The Design Girl had a few weeks ago, yesterday. It's beautiful! Seriously, the pictures don't do it justice. The necklace was made by ArtWark so stop by & check out their store. I will definitely be sporting it on my next date night with Rusty ;)


On a slightly different note, I will be hosting my
1st Giveaway
on Saturday, 8/29!

I'm really excited & a little nervous. I guess my main concern is that no one will enter but eh...whatever. I guess the worst that can happen is no one enters & then I get to keep the item (how can that be a bad thing?). I guess we'll just have to wait & see...

Stay tuned for more info on the my 1st Giveaway on Saturday!


  1. wow! so many fun packages! & that swap package is awesome! you totally lucked out!
