Summer Must Haves Swap & Link Up

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers yesterday.
Things are much better today!
I want to first of all thank everyone who joined in the Summer Must Haves Swap!  It was so much fun matching everyone up and I hope you all had fun with it as well.
I was super excited when I found out that my swap partner was Summer of Athena in the Middle.  Summer is this super awesome girl that lives in New York and rocks an awesome pixie cut (something I’ve always wanted to have but have been too scared to try).  She and I have become fast friends and I had so much fun shopping for her.  And when her swap picks for me came in the mail it seriously felt like Christmas!  Without further ado, here are my swap goodies from Summer!
 This box was HEAVY! And Monte was very interested!

A note from Summer on a very cute card (still hanging on my fridge)
The inside of the box with lots of PINK goodies!
 Gorgeous necklace, floral headband and fabulous pink sunnies

 An oversize pink bag, perfect for going to the beach (or even just to the pool)

Some gifts came wrapped which made it even more fun

Cosmopolitans & Crosswords book, a cute pink photo album and butterfly bookmarks (which I’m already using hehe)
Super cute pink sandals (do you sense a theme here 😉

I Love NY PJs (Summer has the same pair!), gold zebra flip flops and a delicious smelling bath and body set

Cute little owl thank you cards and a gorgeous wine stopper (Summer knows me too well hehe)

A magazine for lounging by the pool
 All my swap goodies!
Summer, thank you so much fun for making my day and for being such an awesome friend!  I know every time I use one of these items I’ll think of you!
Want to show us what YOU got from your swap partner?  Link up now!

    I haven't received my package yet (my partner is in Canada).. so I'll link up when it gets to me!

    I love all the stuff that you got – I went a different route when picking my stuff, I spent more money on less stuff… but stuff that is SO necessary!

    Gah! I have always adored Summer, but now that I've seen how fantastic she is at putting together prezzies I love her even more. Krysten, this is the most amazing swap set EVER – I love it! :)

    What gorgeous goodies! Connie still hasn't received her things from me in Fiji so I'll wait until she gets hers before posting about what she sent me :)

    What a cool idea, I wish I could participate in the swap but shipping from Australia is so expensive, I wouldn't be able to afford to buy anything at all!

    Maybe next time when I am employed.

    Aw, that's amazing! I would have loved to participate but before graduation I had no (and I mean NO) money. I looked at all the link up posts and enjoyed looking at new blogs. What a great idea and I hope there may be some more in the future I can participate in. :) Way to start a great swap!

    Thanks again for hosting – such a wonderful idea!

    (And maybe something we could do seasonally? Or twice a year? Props to you – I know it must have been a lot of work and organization!)

    This is such a cool idea! I love all the stuff you got. I saw some sandals at Target like those pink ones…might have to pick up a pair…maybe blue though! I hope you're doing better sweety.

    Holy cow, that is such an awesome swap, you got so many things, and that's nice that you kind of knew her beforehand. It looks like she sent you some awesome stuff.
