Swoozies Lunch Box

I know it’s weird to be excited for a lunch box, but I was so excited when I got the notification that my package from swoozies had been delivered.  It was my monogrammed lunch box.  Is it sad that it was kind of the highlight of my week?  I was THAT excited for it.  The UPS/FedEx truck are like ice cream trucks but for adults!

Monogram Necklace

Not only did I get my awesome lunch box this week but I got my necklace this week too!  I love it.  I actually got a groupon for this and figured it was worth a shot.  I’ve only had one bad experience with a Groupon that wasn’t even their fault (the site wasn’t working but Groupon actually extended the expiration date so they worked with me) so I decided I might as well test it out.  I must say I’m extremely happy with my purchase.  The monogram is a decent side and the wood makes it lightweight so it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing a hefty necklace.

Blogger Meetup

My blogger meetup is tomorrow!  I get to see all my lovely friends tomorrow.  Some of which I’ve known through blogging for 1+ year and some who I just met cyberly through email exchange.  I love meeting up with these ladies because it’s great to network but also talk about things that only bloggers can understand.  We are meeting at a location that we’ve met at before (keeping it a secret until my Instagram tomorrow hehe) and I’m excited because at least I have an idea of what to expect this time, and one of my blogger friends has a bun in the oven and apparently she’s got an adorable baby bump goin’ on so I NEED to see it haha.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is on Sunday and I have the absolutely hands down most EPIC gift ever.  My dad doesn’t read my blog as much as my mom does but let’s just say I got him a few little things and one big thing that happens to compliment his new bike that he got for the triathlon he’s doing in a few months.  Yup, my dad’s in better shape than me, go figure.


This week was the attack of the minions at my cubicle.  So first my boyfriend’s mom got me a bunch of minion figurines that were dressed up in different clothes and she told me they change outfits like me because they’re little minion fashion bloggers.  How cute is that?  Then, since work has been extremely hectic lately one of my coworkers got me a minion pop movie toy for my cubicle as a thank you.  It’s definitely nice to be appreciated.  I would’ve been happy with a simple thank you but he went out and got me a minion, along with getting my cubicle neighbor something too.  It was really nice and it made my day!
