Christmas in June

Happy Tuesday! It's no longer Monday but not quite Wednesday...hmmm...what are we going to do with you Tuesday? I'm not going to lie, Tuesday is my least favorite day of the week. I feel like you wake up ready for a Monday morning. You expect it and you do your best to make it a great start to the week. By Wednesday, your week is halfway over and you have something to look forward to! So what do we do with Tuesday? It's pretty much worse than Monday. Maybe a personal opinion :) I still try my best to make each Tuesday special since I probably hurt its feelings by publicly declaring it my least favorite day of the week. To make this Tuesday special, I'm doing 2 things...

  1. Going to dinner at Baraby's with my hubby for $2 Tuesday {$2 wine and beer...yes please!} and to celebrate the fact that I GOT A RAISE!
  2. Write a post about having a mini Christmas in June thanks to Miss Neely at A Complete Waste of Makeup!

For those of you that follow Neely, you know that recently she hit 1500 followers {and is well past it now!} and had a giveaway of 15 of her favorite things! I'm honestly not sure how it happened, but somehow, I managed to win! What? Now Neely and I have discovered over the past few months that we are quite alike, so clearly most of her favorite things are mine as well!

The best part about getting 15 things is that they came in multiple different packages! Who doesn't love getting packages in the mail? Over the course of about 2 weeks, I got about 5 packages and 2 gift cards. It's just like Christmas in June!

Package number 1 actually arrived as 3 little packages with the three items below! Essie nail polish in Flirt {currently on my fingers!}, OPI polish in Cajun Shrimp and 2 EOS lip balms! LOVE!
Item count: 3

My next package consisted of the movie Up in the Air {the hubs and I are going to watch this soon for sure!}, Falsies mascara {what girl doesn't love new mascara?} and a vanilla cupcake scented Yankee Candle. Clearly I love the candle since it's already lit! It makes my house smell amazing.
Item count: 6

Next up was a Lululemon headband {Lulu is my absolute fave fitness store!}, Softlips lip balm {came in a pack of 2 and 1 automatically went into my bag}, Orbit wintermint gum and Dior lip gloss! I hadn't tried the Dior lip gloss before and let me tell y'all, I'm hooked!
Item count: 10

One item that I was super excited about was a personalized Tervis tumbler! I got to pick which one I wanted and everything! Of course, I picked the Green Bay Packers cup and you can't see on here, but on the opposite side of the cup it says Amy in my favorite color, hot pink! Here is my cup already on my desk at work.
Item count: 11

I received the last package just yesterday and didn't take a picture...ooops! It was a copy of the book Love the One You're With by Emily Giffin. I am a big fan of Emily Giffin. I've read Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Baby Proof and Heart of the Matter, but NOT this one! How crazy is that? Once I'm done with my reading love affair with Christian Grey {yes I caved}, I will be reading this one for sure!
Item count: 12

Before the packages came, I also received 2 gift cards via e-mail. One was for everyone's favorite coffee addiction...Starbucks! You really can't go wrong with a Starbucks gift card :)
Item count: 13

I also got at $25 gift card to Gussy Sews. I hadn't heard about Gussy Sews until I found Neely's blog and I'm really glad that I did! Using the gift card, I ordered this super cute Kindle case! She also has tons of totes, makeup bags, wristlets, iPad cases, and so much more!
Item count: 14

Last but not least, I received a free 3 month sponsorship on Neely's blog! Since I had already planned on sponsoring through July, now I get to sponsor through October! Super excited I must say :)
Item count: 15

So there you have it folks, 15 awesome gifts all for me in the month of June! Like I said, Christmas in June! Just thinking about all my goodies makes Tuesday just a bit better. A big, huge thank you again to Neely! Now we need to figure out when I'm going to make it up to Dallas!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Tuesday and that the work days speeds by for everyone!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
