my favorite things swap!

Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I was a crazy women, here was my morning schedule: 7am clean carpets with carpet cleaner, 8am send important emails {which have resultedn great results! yeow!!} 9am hit up starbucks and make the hour & a half journey to LAX to pick up a friend.  Thenthe afternoon consisted of folding 3 loads of laundry, cleaning the kitchen and cutting about 80 circles for items for my handmade markets! Today I am feeling much more mellow...since I did enough yesterday for two days...that is kind of how I roll, a day of madness and then a day of calm. Welcome to my life.

A few weeks ago the lovely Leeann from Join the Gossip put out in the twitter universe that she wanted do a favorite things swap with all her bloggy friends and wanted to know if people would be interested. I immediately said yes!!  Wo wouldn't want to get a fun package in the mail and send one?! she  was afraid  no one would sign up. I told her not to be ridiculous! This was a fun idea and surely other bloggy pals would want to join in on the fun.  Over 30 bloggers signed up! Isn't that fun!!

We had to send out our package last Tuesday. I was so excited to send my package to Chelsea of two twenty one .

Here is what I sent her:

A cute date night clutch
A adorable bow necklace
A gift $5 gift card to starbucks for a PSL
Since I couldn't send wine I sent notecards with wine glasses :)

Here is what I got

A cream colored scarf {which i totally don't have!}
nail polish and yummy strawberry lip balm
and the card had a gorgeous peony on it, which are my fav!

How is awesome is Leeann for organizing such a fun event?!! {super awesome, duh!}

Oh and more good news!!!

I won cupcakes from the fabulous Jacqui of baby boy bakery 

Ummmmm, hello! I am a cupcake addict!!

As much as I am red velvet lover I think I might get the punkin' pie...
