Still got my sea legs and loving the tan I got the last week...

Hi all you lovelies! I'm back and it is bittersweet to be back. First of all I missed you all! Back to the bittersweet now, on one hand you are sad to leave your vacation but on the other hand there are some things about a normal daily routine of life that I missed too, so yah bittersweet. Of course the two biggest thing I missed was our puppies but they were well taken care of and very happy to see us when we walked in the day. The second thing I missed was my daily morning runs, it felt so wonderful to run this morning!

I'm not doing a trip recap just yet, that might extend into several posts, I hope you all don't mind, there were was so much to do and see. But I again want to thank all my lovely friends for their guest posts, hope you enjoyed them as much as I did! And Eleise I will be trying that friendship bracelet very soon, if I post something on this blog you better believe I will try it myself, why would I post something and not do it if I ask you all to? 

Anyways I have some exciting news, well just a few things nothing like I won the lottery or anything. A month ago, I was the lucky recipient of giveaway hosted by Alissa over at 33 Shades of Green. I got to pick any piece of jewelry from Shabby Apple and I recently received this necklace, isn't it a beauty?


And for the exciting news, I am now a Shabby Apple affiliate. Seriously check out their stuff from dresses to bags to jewelry, their stuff is seriously cute. Pretty please with a cherry on top click on their link through my site on the right hand side, go ahead, shop away, I know all of us girls want to! Plus they are offering 20% all purchases right now. Check out this great article about cute summer dresses.  Maybe after you read the article, you head over to Shabby Apple yourself and find a great summer dress. One you  can have plenty of opportunities to wear it before the heat of summer comes to an end, ah I don't even want to think about that yet!

Second exciting news, I won another giveaway recently for a designer blog button. I'm so excited, my first button. The lovely Ashley over at Me and My Boys hosted the giveaway for the button designed by Designer Blogs. I'm so excited to create my first button with Lauren, I'll let you all know when you can grab my button.
Can't wait to catch up with you all soon, I'd love to hear how your week went and what has been happening in your life lately and here is a sneak peek of my trip!

Aww- so happy you had a great vacation! Isn't it the best seeing your pets after being away from them? I honestly tear up a little when I'm reunited with my goldendoodle after being apart, lol.

I am so excited to see your blog button! I'm sure it will turn out beautifully! :)

Someone has great giveaway luck! I once won a Cup of Jo giveaway which was fantastic, but I haven't won another one since.

We always miss our dogs when we go on vacation, too. It's the best to see their excited faces when we finally reunite.
