Style Bloggers - how we share our homes

Friday, June 19, 2015

If you've been following my Friday posts, you'll remember I recently posted about where I live (see post HERE). Why am I reminding you of this? WELL the Style Me Bloggers thought it would be fun to go a gift exchange that includes sharing our home (this could mean pretty much anything). Soooo in today's post I'm sharing what I received!

Carrie, over at A Lovely Little Wardrobe was the unlucky blogger who picked my name and had to ship a gift to Canada ;)

Before I share my prezzie, I want to share a little about Carrie:

Carrie was one of the first bloggers I connected with on the internet and despite the fact that she lives quite far away (in Texas) and that we've never met in real life, I do consider her a friend.

Carrie is super sweet and kind and she's probably one of the best dressers I know! Seriously, if you're looking for office-friendly or adorable casual outfits, Carrie is your gal. Not only is she super stylish, but she is also super fit. Once I pop this baby and and the workout 'okay', I'll be hitting Carrie up for some fitness advice.

Alright, so I received this super cute package in the mail (I LOVE getting fun mail, so much better than bills). FYI the gift I sent my person was not even close to this cute, it was more a bunch of stuff shoved in a box (yes, that's considered a gifting failure, I'm aware).

Even the card accompanying the gift was handmade and cute!

Alright, you get it, I really liked the packaging. 

And in the package?! A me-sized Denton t-shirt!!! It fits over my belly but will look much cuter once this babe vacates! 

 I loved my t-shirt and was very happy with my gift and THEN got a very sweet and apologetic email from Carrie because she hadn't sent the other part of my gift. Clearly, more was not necessary but she also provided me with a picture of what's headed my way:

I think it's safe to say she went overboard, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't super excited about this package as well as very grateful to be gifted such lovely gifts care of Carrie and her hometown! NOW, I just need to get my little butt down to Texas to meet her!

THANK YOU Carrie!!
