2012 Blogging Linkup & Gift Exchange!


Before now I had never ever done any kind of blog swap!  But I was extremely excited to see what would come of it!  I signed up and then was partnered with a sweet girl named Ashley from Tennessee!

It didn't take more more than a minute to realize what I was going to send her!  Her blog's name is Tea for Two!  TEA!  Of course!  I was so excited!  Alycia with the Crowley Party did a great job of matching us up!

Last week I got a note that I needed to drive to the post office to pick up a package.  I excitedly walked up to the lady and handed her my mail slip.  She came out with a box that had FRAGILE written on the side of it... It just so happened to be the side of the package that was crushed.  I made some sarcastic comment (of course, because that's what I do) about the condition of the package and walked out.

I loved the contents of my gift!  Chocolates!!  A handmade little bag that will be perfect for must-have-make-up when I am working on the road!  A pretty pretty pink journal!  And what would've been an AWESOME decorate yourself Starbucks mug!  (I am going out to buy a new one this week!)

And even though it was broken, I could not resist writing on the mug! :) 

Thank you so much Ashley!!  I hope you enjoyed your tea!  And I really hope that the teapot made it there in one piece as well!  

I am looking forward to doing something like this again in the future!  If you know of any fun blog swaps please please please let me know!  Happy last day of January friends!!


  1. Okay, you love tea. And sparkly things. And thrifting. I think we should be friends : ) Super cute blog! I'm excited about the blog party, although I was a slacker and didn't get in touch with my partner till late, so no presents for us till later. But I'm glad to have found your blog through it! New follower : )



  2. What a great package!! We love getting packages but to get a box delivered and you have no idea what is inside is the best! This link up/gift exchange has been so much fun! A great way to connect with and support our fellow bloggers.
    We are following you and would love for you to stop by our blog.

    I had so much fun with it :)

    I love meeting new people and getting mail - boom win, win!
    Love your gifts!


  4. Looks like you received some nice goodies! This gift exchange was so much fun!! I've loved getting to "stumble upon" blogs that I may not have come across other wise!

    I'm your newest follower. :)


  5. That is so crazy! I went to VCU : ) There are way more VA bloggers than I thought! We may very well be blogging twins ; )
