I'm A Flip Flopper!

Yes, that's right. Right in the middle of campaign season and everything.

You see, my friend Alana hosted a flip flop swap on her blog, and being the flip flop lover that I am, of course I played along. It's been so fun seeing what everyone got - they are all so stinkin' cute!

MINE are no exception! Thanks to Reese for sending these great flip flops to me! There were also some English tea biscuits and some raspberry vanilla tea! Yum! As you can see, the kids were eager to taste-test the cookies for me the minute I unpacked the box. (Oh, and dream on if you think my ever-growing cankles and sausage toes are going on the web. Not so much.)

I wear a LOT of black, so they will get some major mileage. (And I'm thinking that if Alana says giraffe is in, so is zebra print, right?) Thanks, Reese! I love them!!

I do have two sort of sad things to report though:

1. During my first outing in them, I stepped in someone else's gum. It all came off with some ice and scraping, but still. It was quite sad. And yet, so very me.

2. There was also a lovely card that Reese sent along with the shoes and treats, but my little card-stealing-Miss-G decided to play "mail" with it and it ended up getting ripped, bent, and generally over-loved so I decided not to post a picture of the "after" side of the card. Just know it was a very sweet addition that got some extra TLC from some little hands.

Head on over to Alana's blog to check out the rest of the flip flop swap goodies. It's fun to see them all...many of them I'd love to add to my collection! What a fun way to start out the summer!

Love those- they go with almost everything unlike mine which will require me to purchase something to wear with them - hahahaha

It is funny that you mention stepping in gum, because the other day I ruined my flip flops by stepping in a was of Hubba Bubba at the ball field - UGH! Good thing they only cost $2.44 at Wal-Mart!

Those zebra print flops are SO cute!
So sad about the gum, though. Thanks for joining in on the swap, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

How much fun is that? Too bad about the gum - that's really annoying!

Shelley said...

This has been fun! I think zebra is definitely IN right now, and those are SO cute! So sorry about the gum, that sounds like something I'd do too. :)

I'm sad that I missed the flip flop exchange... but glad to see y'all had so much fun! Those ARE cute! :)

Hope you're feeling wonderfully... how much longer?

Those are cute! Glad it all worked out for you! The one I tried (not on the net) didn't work out....;(

I'm a couple of days late with my post, but I finally got it done!

I love your cute flip-flops. I'm so sorry about the gum, that stinks.
