Oooodles and OOooodles of Swapping Goodness


Seriously's (Shawn's) Birthday Swap reaped HUGE rewards for me! Julie got my name again! WooT wOOt! Last Wednesday was such a good day...I lost 1.8 pounds at Weight Watchers AND Julie's swap package arrived...with a bracelet that matched the outfit I was wearing to a T! It was so meant to be!!
She had my name back in February for my first swap EVER...a Valentine's Day swap...and she showered me with oodles and oodles of goodies. This time around was no different! I got the most fabulous "vampire-ish" swap package EVER! Julie is so clever and creative when she puts together a package. She sent me all sorts of things that are shiny, sparkly, red, black...everything that makes you think Twilight!
She sent me an adorable faux leather shiny red clutch that has a long strap to wear over your shoulder...should come in really handy at midnight on November 20th, when I'm watching New Moon! I also put it to good use this weekend while attending my first OU game of the season, which by the way was a HUGE disappointment. My wounds are fresh, so I would like to bypass that topic for now. She also sent me the CUTEST black bangle bracelet that is studded with hot pink/reddish jewels...which I have worn 4 of the 6 days since I received my package! I LOVE IT! It goes with everything! I also be incorporating it into my New Moon attire. I also got these fantastic re-usable shopping bags that are black and white damask print with my initial on them...how cute is that?! I have already got major compliments! She has read of my love for stainless steel water bottles and included a red shiny one in my package, along with some red and black fingernail polish (SWEET! Perfect for opening night of New Moon!), a red glittery heart candle, and a super cool ring that is big (I love big bling) adorned with fall colored jewels, AND some Midnight Pomegranate body wash from Bath and Body Works (doesn't that just scream "vampire" :P)!

I really love love love it all! I just can't say enough nice things about Julie! She is a gem and the sweetest thing ever...I just love her! Go visit her blog and let her show you some good 'ol Texas hospitality and her wonderfully shabby chic decorating ideas...and you'll for sure hear about how good life is on the ranch. You won't be disappointed! Thanks again, Julie...not only for my swap goodies, but for being my friend.
Hope everyone is have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!

Dang Gina you raked in the red and black goodies!
How funny that the same person got you twice. I can totally see why you didn't ask me to change!

Glad you had a good time!
