Spring Gift Swap, Just in Time for Good Friday!

Happy Good Friday, my fashionistas! Sorry I've been a tad MIA on the blog and twitter this week. I have been enjoying time with my family in from out of town, we've had such a wonderful time. Now everyone has gone back home (insert sad face).

Most of you will remember that Shopaholic In Alabama, along with BFF Bethany over at Maryland Pink and Green co-hosted a Spring Gift Swap. I was matched up with a friend named Kristin for the swap.

Kristin and I met at the Lilly Pulitzer warehouse sale in the summer of 2007 through a mutual friend. Over the past six or so months, we also have enjoyed getting to know each other better through another online message board. Earlier this week, I was thrilled to recieve my package from Kristin.

Soooo much fun! Let me tell you what all was included - margarita mixer, margarita salt, beautiful pink cocktail napkins, "crazy" colorful straws, blue & green butterfly water bottle for my workouts (have to sweat out the cocktails somehow), Lilly Pulitzer Squeeze perfume, and Bare Escentuals BUXOM Lip glosses. This was all wrapped and packaged in a thermal tote which is perfect for our summer beach and boat escapades!

Kristin was so creative - she had cute little name tags on each gift such as the pic below.

Are you now wondering what I sent to Kristin?

My package to Kristin included - Lilly Pulitzer fabric wine bag, Lilly Pulitzer magnetic memo board, girly note cards, tennis themed memo cube and pen (K loves to play tennis!) and a palm tree wine bottle charm (like me, she also loves to enjoy the occasional adult beverage!).

The spring gift swap was so much fun! I can't wait to hear all about what you sent and received from your partners out there. Don't forget, post it to your blog (if you have one, of course). If not, send your photos to either me or Bethany and we'll be happy to post them for you! Part of the fun is sharing! :-)

Happy Good Friday to you and your families. If you're traveling to visit family or friends, stay safe!

p.s. Exciting things coming next week! Be sure to stay "tuned in"!
