ready for the weekend and I got my swap gift!!

Oh goodness Oklahoma isn't getting the snow dump that some states are but we're having our fair share of gloomy gray weather which has made for an unusually long and boring work week. Which means I'm more ready for the weekend. I don't have a jam packed weekend planned just coaching on Saturday and then church on Sunday. Mr. A and I don't have big Valentine's plans just dinner and a netflix movie because we're trying to save our pennies so we can use them wisely once we get into our house. EAK!! That's so exciting to say "our house" there were many days I didn't think we'd ever get to this point but after 2 years of scrimping and saving I can say it was so worth it!! Our first inspection is scheduled for Tuesday the 16th wish us luck!


In other news I went home at lunch and picked up my Simply Love Swap package from the fabulous Katie at Loves of Life. Can I just tell you I squealed in delight when I got my e-mail notifying me she was my swap partner!! Oh and Katie your gift made it in perfect condition the little heart basket is absolutely adorable and I am seriously in love with my headband I can't wait to wear it out to dinner tonight with my hubs, I also got some lip balm, my fave candy reeses hearts and a big heart sucker that I'm pretty sure my hubs will steal, an adorable pink and brown journal and a great notepad with hearts on it that I brought back to work with me to replace my plain old yellow one. Don't worry I took pics and I'll post them on the Mr. Linky on Monday!! I loved participating in this swap my only wish is that Katie and I weren't so far away from each other I have no doubt that we'd be very good friends if we lived closer.


Hope all my bloggie pals have a fabulous weekend!

Later Alligators...

Wasn't the swap fun? I did it too and had such a good time. I hope more swaps like that come along soon to get involved with. Have a Happy Valentine's weekend.

I don't know what swap is, but it sounds cool, and I love headbands. (-:
