I rarely am brand loyal. I have a
cheap thrifty gene and hate to spend big bucks on a product when I can get something similar for a lower price, but there are two notable exceptions in my life: Vera Bradley and Tervis Tumblers.
I got my first piece of VB when I was in college. Justin got me a purse and a whole bunch of accessories in the New Hope pattern and I have been hooked ever since.
Since then, I have always enjoyed seeing what new fun patterns emerge each season. This week, I won a $50 gift card for one of our local shops, Traditions, on Facebook. Traditions has a lot of great gifts and fun stuff, but I knew immediately I would be getting a new Vera bag. Here she is! It’s the Hipster in Lime’s Up. I think it’s just perfect for the summer time.
Also, I mentioned a few weeks ago that I somehow managed to break my Tervis Tumbler. The return form said that I would receive my replacement in 6 weeks. Imagine my surprise when I got it in the mail after less than two weeks! I am so happy and I love the cute little Southern Belle artwork.
Long story short, I am glad to spend a few extra bucks to get quality products. Check them out if you haven’t before.

In February, I attended a baby shower for one of my three college roommates. We all got together for our first picture since our
graduation from Georgia Southern in 2008 Erica’s wedding in 2009. It’s pretty neat to see how we have changed in four years: three marriages and two little boys later!

I did what I thought was impossible or highly improbable. I dropped my Tervis Tumbler Big T and it broke. Thankfully, they have a super awesome lifetime guarantee and in 4-6 weeks, I’ll be getting this baby in the mail!
That’s right! The only good thing that can ever come from a broken Tervis is “shopping” for a new design if you’d like. Can’t wait to get it back in.

It’s a week late, but here’s a quick recap of our Eater fun. We went to a fun egg hunt on Saturday, but Wyatt just didn’t get the concept yet. One other little boy wanted more eggs but his mom said he had enough so he started picking them up and putting them in Wyatt’s basket. Wyatt kept slinging them out and rolling them around on the ground
Here are a few shots of the weekend fun:
Here are a few shots I snapped under the arbor at Mama and Daddy’s house:

I know most folks know that you can download Vera Bradley computer backgrounds like this:
But did you know the download page also has iPhone and iPad backgrounds, too?!?
Here is my phone all bright and decked out in Twirly Birds Pink.
Download yours on the Vera Bradley website!

Mama, Sami, and I got the opportunity to attend a luncheon supporting the Tift County Library Foundation on March 10. The keynote speaker was one of my favorite southern writers, Mary Kay Andrews. I discovered her books while I was in college and I have been hooked ever since!
I laughed when Mama and Sami were getting their books signed. All of my MKA books are on my Kindle. I guess I should have had her sign my Kindle cover. Here’s Sami’s:
