She sent over this:
General Store, so cute, I don't think we have anything like that here...
Inside the bag was this, yay! I love opening gifts and can we talk about how cute that wrapping paper is?
She wrote a card, the first thing I thought, dang it, I didn't send a card with my gift! I should have though! Next time!
This is the what the card said. So cute and I love how she described how she came to get me what she got.
You know Katie I don't own any Billy Joel CD's, so this is perfect and the Hits...perfect! I'll be listening to this at work for weeks to come!
And this towel..so cute with the sea shell. Anything to make me feel closer to the ocean...although I do live about 10 miles away from one..but never go, sad I tell ya.
Looks great right? FYI: the towel on the left is the dish towel, the towel on the right is the hand drying towel...I blame my grandma on this one, she always said you need two separate towels, so when I got married she gave me two sets of towels.
Thank you Katie for the gifts! I love them.
I got Leslie from Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After, go check out what I got her...think Beach.
The ladies also suggested in this post that we write a letter to Alison, the lady that started it all.
When I started reading your blog I loved it right away. I loved your style, you seemed to have it all together, your outfits looked put together and well thought out but effortless at the same time. Then you introduced the Style Me Challenge...I was intrigued. I wasn't sure if I should do it or not. I had two babies and I felt like I had no style, I would buy random things without purpose. I was a mommy and it showed. I casually mentioned it to Mr. to see what he would think, and without hesitation he said, DO IT! It's $10 what do you have to lose? So I did, and I am SO THANKFUL that I did. I did not realize that not only was I going to get a bunch of great outfits and a closet full of clothes with purpose, I met some really fantastic people in the process. The FB group turned out to be the very best part of the whole thing. There were hundreds of other ladies out there with my same problem. I didn't feel alone any more. I felt part of something. I felt great and looked great. I was getting compliments.
I don't remember how I stumbled upon your blog, but I do know I am so thankful I did. You have seriously changed my life for the better. I am more confident, can wear my clothes better and have really stepped out of my comfort zone and in doing so have found a new comfort zone. Who knew I would be pattern mixing, wearing jean jackets and chambray shirts. I always though those were for those really stylish people on Pinterest, turns out it's not, it's for everyone, you just have to wear it with confidence. Half the battle right?
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to a great group of ladies and giving me some confidence in what I wear.
Now go check out some other ladies and see what they got and how Alison has helped them!
