#WhereImFromSwap

6.17.2014
I had the pleasure of joining in my second swap created by Kallie from But First, Coffee. She first created a mug swap months ago that was fabulous. Then, being the creative genius she is, she created the Where I'm From Swap. The purpose was for bloggers to send a package to their swap partner containing goodies that interest them, but reflect your home state. So fun!


Kallie, my swap partner, is from Connecticut. She is basically my Northern twin considering she loves a good Marg, Mexican dishes every Friday night, lipstick obsessed and puts hot sauce on everything. My husband was a little weirded out when he heard too. 

These are the fabulous goodies Kallie sent to me from the good ole' state of CT! 


1. Coffee mug for my morning coffee obsession. This mug is from The Griswold Inn where Kallie worked once upon a time. Fun fact: It's the longest continuously open Inn in the US since 1776! Listed as one of the 1,000 places to see before you die!
2. UCONN Salsa for my continuous chip and salsa addiction. (This girl gets me). UCONN is Kallie's boyfriends Alma mater and they go to all their football games.
3. Hot sauce from her favorite Mexican place where she mentioned they make a killer marg. (Gosh I love her).
4. Polish & lipstick because, well, I have an unhealthy addiction to polish and lipstick. This lipstick is one of her favorites and she thought the color would look fabulous on me :) Thanks Kallie!

All along with an adorable little map of where she lives and the important spots surrounding her.This note and map put a ginormous smile on my face :) It was so personal!

To check out what I got Kallie for the swap, go here.
 
I'm 99.999999% positive Kallie will be putting together more swaps in the future so make sure to follow her to stay updated. It's so refreshing to meet new bloggers and come to know them like sisters. 

Have you participated in a swap before?
