Back from Florida!

Hello again! I'm back from our Florida vacation! Seriously - I feel so spoiled...two vacations, Florida and California, in one summer. Dang, really, this isn't normal for me :)

But we picked a perfect time to go. We were enjoying the 80-90 degree weather in Florida, while everyone back home in Chicago was experience the crazy heat wave with temperatures in the 100's all week! And then we came back last night with temperatures in the 80s. Really - couldn't have done that if I tried!
 Kevin and I went with his family his parents (everyone else backed out on us after we bought out tickets)! We had a lot of fun though. We went on a cruise in Naples, shopped at the outlet mall and flea market, read some books, and laid out and swam both at the beach and our pool.

Kevin and I even spent the night at a resort just for fun using our Chase Freedom reward points. They even had their own island that they shuttled us out too- AND we saw dolphins on the way there. It was fun staying in a place so nice. I called down to guest request for some hair spray and a comb and they come right up to your door and just give you stuff! lol I was quite excited.

And then it was time to go home and start session two of summer school! Yup - that started today. I am teaching geometry and functional math. Today was crazy - I didn't even know what was going on, but I think we have it all figured out and ready to go!

Oh - and one of the best parts of coming home - getting packages in the mail!!!
I was so excited for my Julep box to come! Three different nail polish (one is patriotic) and a lip gloss to match! It always comes so cute and even with little FireBall candies this time! Check out my post here to see how you can get your first box for a penny

And then I got this beautiful frame! Love it. 

Random freebies too :)

And $28 flip flops that I got for only $1. I love deals :)

Yes - I realize this is a weird post, but I hope you enjoyed looking through my mailbox. HA! Oh, and I also got the good stuff, like our internet and electric bills. And three letters from State Farm telling me I'd save so much money if I just switch my insurance to them...funny thing is...I already have State Farm insurance.

Okay off to craft, um, I mean unpack...


  1. Wow sounds like so much fun! Thank you for the new money-saving websites! My favorite is <-- totally check it out if you haven't already!! xo

  2. Sounds like you had so much fun on your trip! We never stay at fancy hotels, but we had a really nice one in New Orleans and we felt so spoiled!

    I L-O-V-E getting packages in the mail! I'm too lazy to paint my own nails (that sounds really snobby) or I'd probably subscribe to Julep. I love that frame! Did you order it or was it a gift? Random freebies are so fun to find in the mailbox. They always send them like 6 weeks after you request them, so I always forget all about them until they show up. Great deal on thos flip flops too!

  3. I love your top! And the $1 sandals too! Really great deal!
