Weekend Recap + Mug O’Comfort & Carabox Pacakges!

This weekend was pretty laid back, so I didn’t take very many pictures.  Friday night Josh and I got Calzones (I was REALLY bad with my eating this weekend…) and watched movies, and Saturday we did some shopping 
Yay for happy mail! This weekend I received both my Mug O’Comfort Swap package and my Carabox Swap package! 
The Mug O’ Comfort Swap was a swap hosted by Beth and I over at Chaotic Goddess Swaps and I was matched up with Katie from Katie Blogs.  After emailing Katie I quickly found that her and I would be good friends-what a great match!  She opened my package and emailed me to say “I think we’re the same person!” lol, I love it! 
She sent me an awesome package with an adorable “Do not speak until coffee” framed image, a Philadelphia LOVE mug and mini statue, TAZO Chai and TAZO Cucumber White tea, Ghiradelli chocolate, and tasty cakes!  She also sent a little bonus pink notebook and nail polish! Girl knows me! 

As for the Carabox Exchange, hosted by Wifessionals, this month’s theme was Going Green and I was paired up with two lovely bloggers.  I sent a package to Mary Catherine over at Fun-A-Day.  It was fun picking out things for her, see what I sent her HERE.  As for the package above, it was sent to me by sweet Holly at Back Home Again, who ended up liking me so much she signed up to sponsor me!  Thanks Holly!

She sent me a cute little Sweet Basil grow kit (I hope I don’t kill it, herbs hate me!), natural nail polish remover (yep, she knows me too!), Burts Bees Cuticle Cream (so can use this!) and lip balm (I can never have enough of this stuff!), a cute green notebook, and wonderful recipes to make my own green stuff!

As for the rest of the weekend we really watched a lot of movies and hung out.  We ate good food, that was bad for us…  But it was nice and fairly relaxing-because I felt exhausted all weekend long.  Saturday morning we went to Pierre’s which is a place we love, and since the owners love Josh so much I got half my meal free, and he got his whole meal free.  It was so sweet of them!  Then for dinner we drove way out to Copper Creek Pub and I tried their Monte Cristo-which ended up being completely deep fried-but oh so tasty! To be fair, I only ate half of it and then pawned off the other half on Megan and Josh. lol

Don’t forget about the Itty Bitty Beauty Swap!  Sign-ups close on Thursday the 9th and it’s cheap and fun!

How was your weekend?

On Friday I’ll tell you all about my break up letter (from Rocky) and about finally getting rid of that stupid dresser my ex (Sneeze) gave me.  I hate that thing so much.

    Mug of comfort swap is the most brilliant idea *ever* I really hate I missed out on that one, but my plate has been very full lately. When things settle down this summer, I want to start swapping again! You got some great stuff, Miss Angie!!! YAY! LOL Do Not Speak Until Coffee….I really need one of those signs!

    Uh-oh……I guess I'll have to wait 'til Friday….. :(

    Thanks for linking-up, my dear!

    Oh my gosh I NEED that framed scrabble tile art! So true, so true…..this morning, when Fedora woke me up, apparently my first words were "You can't go to breakfast, stay with work". Uh-huh. Coffee is a necessity!

    Great Carabox as well. You totally lucked out, m'dear! 😀

    Oooh. I love all your goodies. How fun! I need to do another swap soon.
    Monte Cristos used to be my go to meal at Bennigans…LOVED them. So bad for you, but so yummy.

    I love fresh basil in my kitchen! It goes in so much and helps keep the fly's away.
