Blog Friends!

I want to introduce you to some of my friends from the blogosphere! I am fairly new to the whole blogging world, but these ladies have been so welcoming and I feel that I can call them my friends!

First off is Carly from College Prep. This was my big leap into the blog world and Carly hosted my first giveaway! She is a college student at Georgetown and I love living vicariously through her posts. She is absolutely adorable. I wish I was still in college...

Next up is Julie from Brown Eyed Belle. I first met Julie through the giveaway Carly hosted on her blog. Julie purchased some address labels and is now a regular customer with The Preppy Ladybug! She is from Virginia and is a doll! Her blog is beautiful and it is always inspiring. This is my favorite quote from today's post. It describes my sister to a T!
I also love Lori over at Shopaholic in Alabama. It's too bad that she is a Bama fan, but she lives in South Alabama, which I absolutely love, so I won't hold it against her. Lori hosted my second giveaway in the blogosphere. She posts mostly about her super fun life, and I love to dream I live at the beach and am a SAHW and shop all the time! Here is a picture that she posted from her birthday party this past weekend. Do the cupcake toppers look familiar?

And the notecards I sent her for her birthday after she mentioned on her blog that the coral notecards were her favorite!

Last, but certainly not least, my newest friend, Faith, of Please and Thank You. Faith and I met when she ordered some notecards from my shop. She just can't stay away and because of that we have started emailing and becoming friends! Faith has an adorable shop where she sells hats and scarves that she knits herself. I can't wait to buy one for a baby one day, and I might just have to have a scarf for myself this winter! How stinkin' cute is this little pig hat?

And who could resist this picture of a baby in a big bow hat?

Did I mention she makes hats and scarves for adults? I love this picture!

Of course, these aren't the only blogs I read on a daily basis, these are just a couple of my favorites that I know the owners of. I am trying to get on a schedule for my blog and post more regularly, so I think Tuesdays will be known as Blog Tuesday. I will highlight one of my daily reads each week. Check back tomorrow to see what Wednesday's posts will be!

Hugs and Kisses!

Mail Call!

I have loved my mailman this week! I have received such wonderful goodies in the mail this week!

First, I got my long-awaited Lilly Pulitzer iPhone cover! I ordered it back in June during the pre-sale on PreppyPrincess.com. I got the white zin pattern. It is really cute, but I'm a little disappointed that it covers the top button and the volume buttons on the side. My last cover had grooves and the plastic was thinner over the buttons. It's taking a bit of getting used to, but I absolutely love it!

Then, I received these adorable calling cards that I designed for a customer and had printed professionally. My customer is on the Junior League of Atlanta Cookbook Committee that I chair and she is such a doll. I know that her little ones will love these!

Last, the mailman brought some decadent foot butter from Trinity Soap Company. I went to a new nail salon last week and after a wonderful pedicure, the technician rubbed this amazing foot butter on my feet. I thought I was in heaven! He showed me the tub it came in and when I saw Trinity Soap, I thought it looked familiar and went home to search Etsy. Sure enough, I found Trinity Soap's shop and ordered my own Foot Butter in Vanilla Mint! I also ordered the Ginger Body Soak and Peppermint Foot Butter for my friend's birthday and I'm waiting to hear what she thinks of it!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend and I will be back on Monday!
