I've been spoiled...and I'm lovin' every minute of it!

Hello there my lovelies! I arrived back to California last night after a very long flight. I succumbed and paid Delta $2 for a pair of cheap earphones so I wouldn't have to listen to the kid crying in his seat in front of me. It was worth it.

BF and I went to eat some yummy Mexican food after he picked me up. I've already told you I'm obsessed with Mexi food - I was dreaming about margaritas, chips and salsa the whole time I was gone...to be honest, Georgia doesn't have anything on California when it comes to Mexican food. The only thing I like better about Southern Mexi is the white queso dip!

-----------------------------------------------------

I wanted to mention how lucky I have been lately in the blog-o-sphere! I was one of the lucky winners of Prep in the Big Apple's miller ribbons key fob giveaway! How awesome, right? Thank you MRM for this wonderful surprise! Remember that you have something coming your way from me - I do hope you enjoy it!




Then my week got even better when I found out that I had won The Monogrammed Nest's Tucker Blair headband giveaway! Not only did I get to give a TB headband away on my own blog, but I had now won my very own! I chose the green and white polka dotted headband and can't wait to wear it with my navy blue sundress this spring. Thank you so much G and Tucker Blair!



It's not like my week could get much better, right??? WRONG! I found out I had won Polka Dots and Cupcake's first giveaway! I won Kate Spade coasters, Sprinkles cupcake mix, sea salt caramels (yum!), and a cupcake surprise too! I am so excited about this because this blog happens to be one of my new favorites (and it should be yours too) - thank you Lola Cupcake!


AND in the middle of writing this post, I found out that I won Miss Janice's Gucci Shoe Giveaway! I am just so excited about these shoes. Thank you Miss Janice for this wonderful surprise!



Needless to say, I feel very lucky with all the giveaways I've won! I will not be entering anymore for awhile because I want others to have this excitement too! It's great to win something and it's great to give things away - don't forget to enter my Preppy Paper Girl stationery giveaway by this Friday at 8 pm EST!

Thank you again to everyone who I have won something from! I am very grateful and appreciative of all my lovely new gifts! xoxo

So you and me both are thinking that my week has been pretty amazing, but it gets better! I checked my mail last night and I had some surprises waiting for me. I love mail and I especially love all the mail I received while I was gone!

First up, my spring swap partner Kirby from Good Gals Inc. was a good swap partner and actually sent her package on time...I however, did not. Bad swap partner Miss Sweet Tea! But don't worry Kirby, your items are on their way as I type this!!!! I hope it brightens your day, just like your sweet surprise did for me! Kirby included a sorbet scented room spray and candle (she must know I have a *stinky* doggy at home!), a fun flower shaped bath scrub with the body wash already in it - how cool!, and some yummy chocolate covered sunflower seeds in beautiful spring colors!



Then sweet Gwen from Confessions of a Control Freak had signed up for my snail mail weeks ago and finally received her surprise from me in the mail (sorry for the delay!). Well, she sent me a snail mail surprise too! Thank you so much! You didn't have to, but I sure am glad you did :) Gwen is now hosting her own Snail Mail so go check it out and get signed up!



I also had some lovely things from KAG over at Monograms and Martinis in Manhattan. KAG had signed up for my Snail Mail adventure as well, and she sent me a sweet thank you note and little wish bracelet - so cute! KAG also has her own snail mail going on! She sends the cutest notes! I had also won KAG's Cassie Adams Designs stationery giveaway and my notecards arrived. They are tres adorable and well made! I'm almost afraid to write on them because they're just so pretty.





And last but not least, some of my snail mailers wrote me back! Meagan and Brittany sent the sweetest little notes on adorable notecards! Thank you so much to both of you - it's so wonderful to get mail that isn't a bill! Those of you still waiting on a little treat from me, I haven't forgotten about you! I am finding things as I go along and sending them out one by one!



So as you can tell by the title of my post, I am spoiled!! But I love it!

Congrats on winning all of those giveaways! You got some fantastic things and you deserve every one of them. I am glad you made it home safe and had delicious Mexican food. Yum!

Katie said...

Oh my goodness, you have won so much cute stuff!

Glad to know that you made it home safely...I would definitely have paid the $2 for headphones too. Did you get to watch a movie or just listen to their radio stations?

Also, *great* choice on the Mexican being your first meal upon your return to California.

Its almost your birthday!!!
