Oh Monday can so totally suck sometimes.
I did have the best weekend so the incessant drilling on my balcony is not as bothersome as it might be if I did not have such a FAB weekend.
My Friday started off with me receiving a piece of mail!!!
I love mail. I love receiving letters, cards and well PRESSIES!!!!!
And Friday started with a pressie.
It was hard not to snap photos and post the goodies online....but I had to wait until today. Yup! I can now show you the awesomeness of the Summer Fit Gear Exchange!
It all started as part of being a Sweat Pink Ambassador. And hanging out on a FB page for us Canadian gals. Then, Brittany from My Mama Journey, suggested we do a blogger exchange! YES!!! I am so in!
I received Charlotte's name - she blogs over at Charflew23. I did some research for Charlotte (partly helped from her most helpful post!. And then I picked up a few things, and added a few others that I had and thought she might love. I totally FORGOT to take photos of what I sent...but I know Charlotte will post - as soon as she gets the damn thing (its over a week now and I am very cross with Canada Post -- next time I will mail EXTRA early!!!) I promised Char it was worth it. And, I know I would be stoked if I received those goodies too. Funnily enough, many of the things I sort of thought I might send, she already had on her wish list! (UPDATE: see what I sent Char over HERE!
Brittany had my name...when I opened her package I was delighted to see several goodies.
And now the goodies!
I received a Joe Fresh tank - in my fav colour ORANGE! ITs fab. It feels awesome on. I have not yet worn it for a run, but I know I will. I have worn it to the grocery shop on Saturday, and love the fit and feel. And, the fabric is sort of thicker - so its cozy - if that can be said about a tank. It's the softness of the fabric - and as a tank it isn't too bare either - so is wearable outside the gym or pathway. I also received chocolate (I will have you know I am hording this in my fridge for a treat after a long run - or this weekend - whichever comes first). The EOS lippie is awesome too. I ran out of mine a while back and hadn't bothered to replace it! I wasn't sure about a melon flavor, but tell you that it isn't sweet so I really love it. This lip balm is great because it glides on and isn't sticky.
The one thing I forgot to take a close up was the lovely notebook from Anthropologie. I always love stuff in there - but the price...sheesh. This is a prefect thing for me...as I always need to have a notebook at work - for hours, for thoughts, for assignments....The elastic keeps it shut and it is small - perfect the purse.
Thank you so much Brittany!
