Fun With Our Phones Monday!


Erin and I are back for...


Link up to show us what pictures you took with your phones!

Here are the pics I took this week...


{buddies}

{too many pregnant students...}

{since when does Siri get to take off?}

{melt my heart <3}


{huge problem}

{I could be a James Avery model}

{wore my new TOMS to work Friday}

{Erin Condren notecards!}

{disappointed with the address book... :-/}

{I made puppy chow Saturday!}

{strawberry cupcake from Crave}



And most of you know by now that I participated in Tara and Celia's nail polish swap... 


And I never got my nail polish from my partner. 

And some of you may think I'm a total biatch for doing this...

But I'm calling her out. 

Ainslee, you suck. 

It was a really low thing to do to 1. sign up for a swap you weren't going to follow through with and 2. to LIE to me and tell me you sent my package when you really didn't. 

Now, I guess I don't know that she didn't' send it. USPS could have screwed up... but when I've emailed her twice and she never responds, that right there is good enough evidence that she didn't follow through with her end of the deal. 

Of course, her twitter and blog have since disappeared as well so there is no other way to contact her. 

I hope you are reading this Ainslee. 

You have really disappointed me and really hurt my feelings. 

How could you be that low to do something like that? 

I hope Karma pays you back. 

Anyway, Enough of that...

I guess people have heard me complain enough on twitter about it and 2 seriously fabulous blog (and now IRL friends) gave me some nail polish!

I met Lura for dinner on Friday night and she was so sweet and brought me some nail polish and HOMEMADE pumpkin sugar scrub. Y'all this stuff smells so good I want to eat it!!






And then Tara brought me even more nail polish and cute nail files at our htownblogger meet up yesterday!!





Please go show these awesome ladies some love. They really know how to make a girl feel special.

Your cats are adorable! I love your TOMS and jewelry!

I'm glad you called her out! She deserved to be!

Tara @ Dashing in Pearls said...

Yay! So glad you like them! You didn't deserve to be snubbed like that! Thankful to have found a blog-turned-IRL friend like you! :)

tara said...

I really hate that your partner screwed you over like that! :(

Cait said...

oh no so sorry about your partner :( ive been having problems with one of mine for another blog swap- so annoying! regardless the colors you got were lovely! xo

Selina. said...

That is so rubbish for someone to do that :( glad you ended up getting some polishes anyway from some much better people!

Jules said...

First of all, your leopard TOMS are super cute and I love your charm bracelet, especially the cute cupcake charm.

I give you credit for calling your dud of a swap partner out. What she did is not right at all and she should be ashamed.

I'm glad some of your other blog buddies gave you some pretty polish!

Lindsey @ Running Down A Dream said...

I had that problem once. It was a 6 week pen-pal link up. She sent me a letter the first week. The second week, I just figured it was late. The third week, we were supposed to send a little something in our letter and I sent her a Starbucks gift card! That first letter is the only one I got :-(

Kasey said...

First off, your cats ... adorable! I love them!

Second, I didn't know she was your partner. Makes perfect sense and she deserves to get called out.

Third, I got goosebumps reading about the lovely ladies who got you nail polish. Seriously. It's such a sweet gesture.

Jennifer B said...

Dang, that's terrible about your swap partner. I have been waiting for a giveaway I won for 3 months now...I'm pretty sure I'm not getting it.

Heather said...

So sad about your swap partner! :(

Julia Miller said...

Those toms are super cute, I have a friend that would love those. Sorry about your swap partner, I just sent out some ornamants in my first blog swap, I would have my feelings hurt to if I don't get anything. You put time and money into someone, you would hope for the same in return. Glad your friends came through for you. ;)

Ashlee Miller said...

So glad Lura and Tara gave you some goodies! So sorry about your blog partner :( On a brighter note I love your new TOMS!

Christina said...

Your kitties are so cute together! Siri! Get back to work! Oh, your poor tree! What a pain to fix it. Are those the TOMS with fleece inside? I’ve been eyeing those. I’m so sorry about your blog swap partner. I’ve had a dud of a partner before. It’s really sad and makes me not want to swap anymore.

Neely said...

DAAAANG I dont wanna mess with you! BUt seriously thats not cool.

Love your Toms!

Allison said...

So glad you ended up getting nail polish! I'm sorry your partner was so sucky!
Love the TOMS!

Miranda said...

those Toms are awesome! and sorry about your partner...she kind of disappeared on all of us but people should definitely follow through on their swaps when they sign up!

Phil and Darby Hawley said...

Your cats are so pretty! I can't believe your partner didn't send their end of the deal; not cool!

Lindsay said...

I'm sorry you got stuck with a shady swap partner. I even remember you saying one time that you don't like to do swaps because you always put forth a lot of effort and some other people do not. I'm so sad that you had this experience AGAIN!

I want some of that homemade pumpkin scrub! It looks awesome!

Loving my new Vera bag. :-) Thanks for meeting me early yesterday!

Meg O. said...

I think it's AWESOME that you called her out. You go, girl! Next time you do a swap (if you even do one), you should be paired up with me and we can spoil each other and I'll take you out to dinner! Hehehe

Vicki said...

I love you for calling her out! I hope she is reading and realizes what a crappy thing she did!!! Karma is a biatch babyyy :-)

I heart you to death and I am glad you got polish anywayz cause you do not deserve to be snuffed :-(

(PS: I just realized how ridiculously close we are getting to your trip to NYC)

xoxoxo

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

Heck ya girlfriend call that beezy out!

Celia said...

=( i am really sorry about your swap partner. it's crappy and i am glad you called her out. i hope you do another swap with us and we will be sure that we pair you with someone awesome! =)

Ana said...

I hate when Sri takes off. hahaha. She should be there at ALL times!

Ashleigh said...

I always love pics of your kittehs! I am glad you called Ainslee out, bc that really isn't cool of her. Glad your friends came through for you!

Life With Lauren said...

The cats are adorable. Sorry about your swap glad that the others were so great though!

meganpotts said...

Oh! Why aren't you impressed with the EC address book? I am IN LOVE with the planner.

Michelle said...

Since you called her out....I will too. LOL! I won a giveaway of hers a long time ago and I am still waiting on my $50 Sephora Gift card.

On a happier note...I'm glad I got to see your face yesterday and I am even more glad that you got some really cute nailpolishes and some cute toms. I'm jealous. I love them!

Sarah-Life is what you make it said...

totally awesome that you called her out!

Ya, sometimes life happens and maybe she didn't have enough money this month for the swap but thats when she emails you and explains! not leave you hanging!

The Nerdy Katie said...

Wenches be cray cray! I am in 2 exchanges for my Moms group & sadly there is always a few people who don't get their gifts, and it's a min of $30 we spend! We have a lot of fun w/the call outs :)

I'm sorry crazy didn't send you your polish, giving me your Toms will make you feel better :)

Erin said...

That's crazy! And the girl's blog disappeared???? Wow, what a complete biznatch. I'm so sorry hun! Merry f'ing Christmas to her!

KY said...

#1 I love your TOMS!!!! They are so fancy I need a pair myself!

#2 I love YOU for calling that girl out. She deleted her blog? WTF? hahahaha! This little story just made my night - I am glad great friends stepped up to the plate and bought ya some new polish - rock it girl!! xo

Lori said...

She'll definitely get hers.

On a side note, those Toms are super cute! Love!

It was so great finally meeting you yesterday! Can't wait for more fun meet-ups!

Kiley said...

That was so sweet of them! I'm glad you got some nail polish in the end. :)

Heather said...

That was really sweet of those girls to get you something when your partner bailed on you. I don't understand how someone could do that...if you're not going to actually do the swap then why sign-up?!?!

sarah said...

Amber said...

I love that you called her out!

I've been away from Twitter and when I asked what the scoop was, I was told I needed to check out this post because you called out your swap partner!

Nice work! I will officially be following your blog now :)

Savannah said...

What a crazy situation. Glad you called her out.

Bummer about the lights on your Christmas tree!

Michelle said...

Sarah E. said...

Ooh I love your kitty pictures!!!! So cute, the pair of them!

LOVE the Toms!

And yum to puppy chow. I need to make a batch. The local chocolate shop makes them at Christmas and calls it reindeer feed.

Jess - PrettyPhysicist said...

So I was thinking about this the other day, and I decided to search back through old emails, and yes, I WAS paired up with her for another swap. I sent her stuff, but never got anything in return. She claimed she sent it, but I never got anything. Wish I had realized it so I could have warned you. :(
