The first "official" days of summer are finally here- who am I kidding? Here in Texas, we have already been in the 100's....and that's why I am so glad to have received some flip flops in the mail this week!! That's right- the Second Annual Bloggy Flip Flop Exchange is in full-swing. And blogging buddies across the country are receiving fun packages in the mail!
All 3 kiddos and I have new flip flops to wear. Take a look:
Sis was thrilled to get a package in the mail from her new pen pal, Mimi's (@ He & Me + 3) Daughter Actress. She loves her new purple flip flops (one of her favorite colors) and the flip flop socks are WAY cool!! Most of all, Sis was into getting a letter from someone she had never met. She quickly wrote a reply to the questions Actress had asked her in the letter and is anxious to get it mailed off. So cute!! Thanks Mimi & Actress!!
Brody has been checking the mail box daily in anticipation of his package. He was so excited to get skateboard flip flops from Jen's (@ Harried Mom of Four) son William. He poured through all the great VA brochures that William had sent him- his favorite was on "Dinosaur Land" and asked immediately is we can go to Virginia this summer- he even pulled out the atlas to find their town on the map (and this momma didn't even have to bribe him to do it- mission accomplished!!). He also sent Brody some candy, which he shared with his Grandma Illinois, a magnet, and a keychain. This boy has had these flip flops on since getting them - I had to pull them off his feet to get a picture! Thanks Jen & William!
And the baby even got in on the action- Sweet Andrea (@ My Chihuahua Bites) has an adorable baby boy and we thought it would be fun to play too!! Look at the awesome package little Cooper sent Bubba!!! Not one but TWO adorable pairs of flip flops, a great book from South Carolina, a Gamecock sippy, awesome snacks....and an adorble lambie that Cooper is sharing with Bubba for the summer- he has requested that Bubba take pictures of lambie with him. I thought it was an awesome idea!!! Thanks Andrea & Cooper! Here's the first attempt at getting a picture together....the stairs were just too tempting for him to sit still!!
And lastly, Momma got some adorable flips from Jen (@Twin Mommas). How did she know that J Crew are my absolute favorite flip flop?? And they are so cute!! I also recieved some fun stuff from Indiana - Popcorn on the cob from Chester Farms, chocolate treats (one being a race car - hmmm probably for a famous race that's held there??), and a Colts pin. Such a fun gift to get!! Thanks Jen!!
We were so spoiled by all of you this week!!! Thank you for loving on us!!! I love how fun activities like this connect us all. The kids are certainly excited to continue writing their pen pals.
We hope you enjoyed the flip flop exchange as much as we did! Please let us know what you received by linking up. And take time to visit some of the other ladies who joined in the exchange. What better way to get to know a new friend?
