Fall Swag Swap

About a month ago, I signed up to participate in a Fall Swag hosted by the girls over at Homemade Happenings, Camo and Lipstick, Macke Monologues, and Beauties & The Baseball Coach.  I was paired up with Stacey who blogs over at Grief Bacon.

I really enjoyed getting to know Stacey.  Her workout and food posts have been great motivation for me.  We both are trying to lose weight, and it's nice to know someone else has the same struggles I do #thestruggleisreal.  And even though we don't share the same love for coffee, we have lots of things in common.  We both use our lunch breaks to get our workouts in.  We both aren't fans of seafood or vegetables.  We both go days without shampooing our hair.  Ok, normal I probably wouldn't share that about someone else, but she did blog about it :) I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with Stacey and finding out what else we have in common.

Stacey knocked it out of the park on my fall swag.  She sent some AMAZING stuff!

I received a thick, soft infinity scarf.  Can't wait for cooler weather so I can wrap this around my neck.

I received a razorback bag.  I had to laugh when I saw this.  I was wondering if Stacey had ESP and could see me carrying all my stuff into work in Walmart sacks.  One sack for lunch, one sack for gym clothes, and usually another sack for something else.  This bag is now designated the gym clothes bag. 

Stacey also included everything needed to make smores.  She knew that making smores was on our fall bucket list.  I love that we have everything ready for when we decide to make them.  Thanks for saving me a grocery trip, Stacey!

I also received an Apple Pumpkin Yankee candle.  Oh my goodness!  Everyone needs one of these.  It's fall wrapped up in a glass jar.

Stacey also included some protein powder.  I have been wanting to try some protein powder for a long time.  I've just been too chicken.  So far, I've just been adding it to my oatmeal in the mornings.  Almond milk will be next, thanks to Stacy's suggestion.  I'm really glad Stacey sent the protein powder.  I know that it will be a regular part of my diet now, and I probably would have never bought it on my own.

I had a blast participating in this Fall Swag Swap.  And while I absolutely LOVE everything I received,  getting to know Stacey and gaining a friend was even better.
