Pink And Green Cheer

Gosh, y'all are the best bloggy friends a girl can have!! I was in a tizzy last night when I posted about my stern email and feeling like I was this terrible person. But never fear when blog pals are near! You reassured me and made me feel so much better. After a night's sleep, I woke again feeling uneasy but re-read my email for the millionth time and once again, I agree with my actions. It was the right thing to do. But gosh the right thing is not always the easy thing in life, is it?! Pull your big girl britches up, KK!! That's what I keep repeating to myself.





So on to more fabulous things... Pink and green-tastic swap pictures! I participated in the PINK swap hosted by the adorable Hopsy and guess who got the golden ticket? Me! I was partnered with that sweet thing! Talk about luck of the draw. I felt so nervous when I opened her package that I didn't give her equally fabulous prezzies. She truly spoiled me! Just look.... a gorgeous pink pashmina, an adorable sign, cutie kitchen gloves, a yummy gardenia (my favorite flower scent- I know I've never mentioned that on here- it's kismet!) candle, a Lilly scent sample (great minds think alike as I sent her the same one. I forgot she works at a Lilly store- silly me.), Vera photo brag book, pink and green magnetic frame, fantastic pink and green napkins and tissues, playing cards in a pink case and my very favorite gift....a pink Lilly (and green on the inside) passport case and luggage tag!! Hopsy you so outdid yourself. I love LOVE it all!! Thank you thank you thank you!!








Not quite as fabulous but hopefully almost as fun, here's some what I sent down to Texas for Hopsy.... (I just realized that I neglected to take picture of everything but she has some photos on her blog so if you are super interested...) A little collapsible box from Pottery Barn, pink kitchen items including my favorite Praline glaze (can be used a dozen ways but it makes a fabulously simple appy if you just pour some over plain cream cheese and serve with apples and crackers), and a few goodies I made out of Lilly fabrics. Lilly fabric items include two wine/gift bags (because summer parties in Texas are a heck of a lot closer than summer parties in Upstate NY), a reversible headband, a can coozie (or a marker cup or whatever), a tissue case and a picture frame. The frame was one of those things that I had big plans and high hopes for and in the end I was not super thrilled with it. It just doesn't look as professional and nice as I had imagined it might in my head.






All in all, I think this was a pretty pink-and-green-tastic swap, Miss Hopsy! Thanks a million for hosting. I can't wait to do another fun and cheerful swap soon!

Super gifts! I have to sign up to the next swap! Re. your last post - you did the right thing being firm. Rules aren't bendable - and once you start making exceptions everything goes to pot. I totally sympathise with your feeling uncomfortable about not being liked for this, but it's like being a manager a leader in any organisation - you have to do what is best and what is right, even if in the short term it makes you unpopular. ou know that in the long term it is for their own good,a dn I'm sure in a few years, when they are older, they'll realise it to. You will make them stronger people and uphold the repulation of the sorority.

that is sooo cute! I'm new to blogging, and can't wait to take part in a swap.
whenever I'm shopping, I find myself looking for fun little treats that might be of use in the future.

I am just SO relieved you loved the package! I had the best time shopping for you too! I have been using my items you sent- the Lilly kleenex cover is so perfect for this time of year!
