A Texas Sized Flip Flop Exchange Take 3!!

          

       Ahhhhhh Summer is finally here and it's time for flip-flop season!!  Here in Texas, it's all we wear from June 1 to Aug 24 (First day of school for us).  So you know that we have several pairs in our closet here.  But you can never have enough!


         Who's ready for the Third Annual Bloggy Flip Flop Exchange (BFFE)??  We tried the past 2 summers and it has been a great success.  AND I have had SO many people asking me when the next one is...so here it is!!!
         What's a BFFE?? Would you like a new pair of flip flops to arrive on your doorstep within weeks?  Would you like to get to know a new bloggy friend?  Maybe you'd like to send someone something cool from your state?  And with summer already starting, we are going to do this QUICK.  Like next week.  Here's how it will work:

Bloggy Flip Flop Exchange
One. If you would like to participate, send me an email that includes your full mailing address, blog address, and flip flop size by Sunday, June 12, 2011.

Two.  On Monday, June 14, you will receive an email with your BFFE partner's information.  Please take the time to visit their blog and learn more about them.

Three. By Friday, June 17, mail your flip flops to your BFFE partner along with mementos from your home state (so they can learn more about you as well). Some ideas include a postcard, local delicacy (someone got homemade fudge sauce last year- jealous!), key chain, etc.  Don't spend more than $20 total for your package.

Four.  Blog about the flips you have received - show us some pictures!! For example, I loved this pic from JennyKate a few years.  Bonus points for the most creative shot of you in your flip flops!!!


         There we go!  Totally easy and totally fun!   Lastly, please help me get the word out - mention the Bloggy Flip Flop Exchange in a posting of yours this week and I will send you a little Texas something as a way of thanks (please make sure I know about it).  The more participants we have, the more variety of new bloggy friends!  Thanks for helping make this a success.  Now don't sit on it, send me an email!
