Wednesday Loves and a little snail mail swap

I love reading other people's random loves on Wednesday, so I'm going to share mine with you again today! Link up with Jamie.


First of all, I'm love love loving that I won an awesome giveaway from BonBonRose Girls on Sunday! I won a magazine subscription of my choice! So thrilled!

Because of the fact that I've spent so much money buying magazines lately and subscribed to three new ones in the last month on my own, this giveaway was PERFECT for me to win!
I'm going to add either Cooking Light, Food Network, or InStyle to my mailbox! What's your vote?

I'm loving that we've found some great venue options for the wedding/reception. We haven't signed anything and are still figuring everything out for sure, but here's a sneak peek at one of our favorites.

I'm loving that after searching for a long time for jewelry organization methods, I threw together some stuff that I had an made my own organization system. I love having all my jewelry on display for me to pick from!


Sorry for the iPhone pic. I asked Tim to take it for me. This is what I got.

I'm loving that the finale of the bachelorette will be next Monday. I'm mostly excited because I can't watch anymore of this girl and still stay sane, but I'm also hoping she'll pick this guy because they were cut from the same mold. They're both nutty and need each other.

I'm loving that I sent out some fun snail mail to some blogger friends this week. And I'm loving that Zara sent me a wonderful compact wedding organizer to help me in my wedding planning!

Really I just love snail mail in general! 
So, I want to organize a snail mail swap! 
It's really simple. 
You send me your name, email, and address, and I'll pair you up with someone. 
You spend $5-$10 and mail your partner something that will fit in a card or flat bubble mailer (any size)! 
It can be a card with a gift card, some stickers, a padded mailer with some nail polish, or you and your partner can talk and decide a different theme. It's just got to include a cute card and be flat! 
Send me an email by clicking the contact button on the top left with your info by Saturday the 29th.
I'll pair you up and send you your partner Sunday or Monday. 
Send out your package by August 6th!
And I'll host a link up on August 15th for you to post a picture of the fun mail in your mailbox as well as the contents! It's just a little way to share a smile with someone and get a fun piece of mail in your mailbox! It always makes my day when something I get in the mail is hand addressed.

There's a magazine that is so great but I can't remember what it's called. Simple... simple something. (doesn't help you much, I know. but it's great!)

I hope you find the perfect venue!!

I'm excited about re-organzing my jewelry when my closet is finished! Cute!

Girl we are on the same page about the Bachelorette! I got excited that the finale was this Monday.. not because I'm excited about it, but because I'm ready for her season to be OVER! But of course, I can't stop watching- I'm hooked! She just needs to pick someone already and lets move on... and hoping Ryan is NOT the next Bachelor.... We shall see!
