The Blogiversary & Mug Swap Giveaway: The Results Are In!

Today my little blog turns 3 years old.
I'm getting a little misty eyed just thinking about it!
She's such a cute little toddler, isn't she?
I have met so many great people through blogging.
And been able to share my life with my friends all around the world, and have a little place to keep all my treasured moments chronicled.
I love being able to grab my phone and with a few clicks I can show someone my experiences biking in Barcelona, or the famous Baked Brie recipe, or you know show them a gagillion pictures of Mylie

And then there is the Mug Swap. The highlight of my little blog's year.I feel like it's safe to say, that things went so smoothly this year, that Lord willing, there will be a 4th Annual Mug Swap in 2014.

Thanks again to our LOVELY sponsors - who I also consider friends - who have made the mug swap that much more fun with their awesome giveaway items!!!

If you haven't already, head over to their little shops on the internet and check them out! They all make the loveliest things!

And now for the big winners!

There were 877 participants + 617 additional entries, for a total of 1494 entries!

Winner of Prize Pack #1 Is:
 Sarah from Handbags N Pigtails!!!

Winner of Prize Pack #2 Is: 

Katy from the Goodness Gathering!

Congratulations ladies! I will be contacting both of you about your goodies!!!

Thanks again to everyone for spreading the word and supporting the sponsors!!!
If you haven't mailed your mug yet, tomorrow is the deadline. And you pinky promised. So head on out to the USPS, ASAP.

And just a few more mug swap suggestions - when you get your mug, make sure you let your sender know! I think everyone is eager to hear that the mug has safely arrived at it's new home! If you Instagram it, tag the sender, I think everyone appreciates that! :) And if you sent your mug and you haven't heard from the recipient, give it a couple days before worrying! People have a lot going on, some are traveling, and sometimes people just don't have a chance right away to respond. If you are super worried, you should have a way to contact them in your assignment email, and you are welcome to do so!

And don't forget, if you have a blog, I'm hosting the link up on Tuesday, September 3rd. And if you don't, be sure to come back then and read all the posts of those who do!!
