Virtual Coffee 7.4.12

Happy 4th of July! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day with family and friends. I'm excited to be meeting with all of you again for virtual coffee, especially since I can drink coffee again! I completed my 30 day Get Fit Program through Arbonne yesterday and celebrated with a vanilla latte.  So go ahead and grab your favorite beverage so we can chat over drinks.

I have to share with you what I received from the Handmade Gift Exchange.  Jen sent me a wonderful package that I LOVE!  She did a great job picking things that I would like and enjoy.  In the picture above you can see the Cozy I received from her. For a girl that drinks coffee all the time I never invested in a reusable coffee cozy.  So I was so excited to see that I received this from Jen.  I love the material and it worked great yesterday with my Starbucks Vanilla Latte.  Yummy....

Look at what else I received from her!  

She figured out I like coffee and made me a fun coffee banner.  This is already hanging in my kitchen and it makes me smile every time I walk by it.

She also made me a fun zippered pouch (on the left) which I plan to use in my purse to help organize it!    On the right is a business card holder which will come in very handy for my blog/Etsy business cards (as soon as I get the store open) and my business cards for the Hollyday Bazaar I am co-chairing for the spouses club.

Thank you so much Jen, you did an awesome job picking things I would love!

Yesterday was Freedom Fest here at Fort Rucker.  It is an event with any kind of fried food you could imagine, music, and fireworks.  We had a thunder storm roll in yesterday afternoon so activities were a little delayed.  We sat down with some friends to eat under a tent while waiting for the entertainment to begin.

I decided to get a Bloomin' onion for my dinner. It was huge so we ended up sharing it.  For dessert we all shared funnel cake and fried oreos.  Wow!  We had a great time, but a very late night.  I don't think I got to bed till 12:30 or 1 last night, which is VERY late for me!  

What did you do for the 4th of July?

  2. Thank you for coming by my blog.=) I like that we both have "Hippie" in our titles.=)
    I love blooming onions, but they tend to make me sick.=) All that homemade stuff is SWEET!
    I am always interested in swapping ads and swapping guest posts. I am am vacation the first half of August, and am trying to get several of those days filled. I'd swap with you. It would be great for both of us. I use passiofruit ads, and both my sizes are available for swaps. Or we can just trade buttons. Let me know.=)
