summer must haves swap

Today I'm still in sunny Arizona with an adorable pup curled up next to my side. I'm gearing up for my cousin's graduation activities this upcoming weekend. I'm not used to the 100 degrees or more heat, so I'm most often found inside. However, my aunt and uncle have a pool so if I go outdoors I have the option of cooling off at least. :)

I was super excited when I read that Krysten, from After I Do decided to host a Summer Must Haves Swap on her blog. My swap partner was the lovely Alisha, from the blog Married in Chicago. Having similar interests, we seemed to read one anothers' minds! If you haven't been by Alisha's blog, you must! You'll encounter an amazing woman who in every single post will uplift your spirits and shower you with love and creativity.

Let's see all of the goodies that Alisha got me!
How did she know that my favorite type of gummies are HARIBO?! So. Yummy. I can't wait to eat these when I get back from AZ to UT so I can officially begin the start of the summer time while eating my yummy gummies.
I also loved her adorable note and I just love the earrings and turquoise rings! Like Alisha mentioned on her blog, we both love turquoise!
I also love pistachios and look at the front of the card! It's pink and has a flower which is perfect for the summer time.

Thank you so much Alisha for your thoughtfulness and thank you Krysten for your swap on your blog!

I hope you are enjoying your week Ocean Dreamers! I'll be back soon on a post dedicated to the adorable puppy I've been dog sitting soon!
