CHRISTMAS IN JULY WITH THE BLENDED BLOG



Last year we did our first Christmas In July with the The Blended Blog. We had a random drawing on Elster and I can't tell you how excited I was to shop for my gal, Whitney and to receive a box of goodies from Shaunacey
I was so super excited when Nicole's package came in the mail a couple week's ago as this girl has some seriously sweet taste. 


When we were in Toronto, Nicole, who is a professional photographer took some great shots. I happened to be wearing my pineapple sweatshirt one day and she got this great shot with my spirit house as the antique gold pineapples and color were perfect.

So this girl knew I had an affection for the fruit, not to mention cocktails and so she sent me this batch of goodness that so fittingly went with the picture she took:






Even the print on the box was darling!

Cool "Small World" story from the Toronto Trip. Nicole was asking Shaunacey if she knew if the town I lived in was close to the town her cousin and husband live in. Crazy to find out, not only is it the town we are moving to 8 miles away but the church he is a Pastor at is a coupe miles form our current house!! Small World indeed!!

CHEERS sweet Nicole!!! How ironic is it that the glasses we are toasting with are similar to the glasses she got me and the Sangria drink mix color!! Let's party like a pineapple!!!
Shaunacey, Nicole and I from our May Toronto trip.

Head over to Deena's blog, and see what little goodies I was over the moon to send to her.
She is a dream of a friend and lady and so fun to buy for!!

Yep, that box is right up there! And how sweet are all those pineapple goodies? Have fun enjoying them. I am loving reading all TBB posts today and seeing inside the boxes, how fun!
