Vacation Souvenirs and Giveaway

TGIF Lovelies! 

I'm so so SO thankful for this warm weather, I can run outside, play football with the hub and roll the windows down. Ahh spring time, how I've missed you. We are off for the normal, some grocery shopping, mall gawking, and a long stop at gamestop so the hubs can pick up Titanfall and stare at the bajillion other games they have. I play the demo games while I wait for him, it works!

What are your weekend plans?



Spring break is upon us or almost for most. I've got vacation brain. I swear I must be part gypsy, I love to travel! I loved going on harvest with my dad because I got to go to soooo many places, it was work but totally worth it.
 My parents just got back from Hawaii.
 Which is my motivation to be budget-wise and a hard worker. With them back I had to give back the puppies I was dog sitting, whomp whomp. But also souvenirs! I love me some souvenirs, from any where!! So today even though I cannot link up with the lovely Darci at The Good Life Blog , I'm still gonna share with you my top 5 favorite souvenirs!

{one}


Novelty/local fun foods.

I love Mauna Loa Macadamia nuts and Chocolate covered Kona coffee beans. My friend Gabby brought me back "Moose Poop" from the Grand canyon, they are chocolate covered peanuts. They make fun little gifts :)


{two}

Shot glasses.


I know I'm not the only one in the world that collects shot glasses. I had a small collection before I met Ty, and he had a small one too then when we moved in together we had a pretty decent collection that continues to grow.

{three}

T-Shirts.


Yes yes, as cliche as it is, I'm the weirdo with a thousand and ten tees from all over. I also just love tee's so that just fuels the fire. Woody's Longboards is my dad's favorite place to get t-shirts. The hub has a few too.

{four}

Postcards.


I'm also the weirdo that collects postcards. Not the generic one, the unique ones that cost more than 50 cents. I like to keep them, frame them, or put them in an album.

{five}

Fun novelty items.


If this offends you, I'm sorry, but If my mother can find this humorous than anyone can! My brought back these HILARIOUS soaps from Filthy Farmgirl. They are also 100% natural and vegan friendly (my moms a vegan). The filthy Beaver is the one I got and my sister got the filthy Pussy.

Despite the names, these soaps smell AMAZING!!

Because I'm so in love with these bad boys already, I'm giving away The Naughty Pack, which includes 6 fun named smelly good bars!





Whats your favorite souvenirs to get/give?

Have a great weekend!!!
