Who Wants To Do a Swap? A Flip Flop Swap!

No I'm not pregnant!
(I realized people might have though that on Friday since I said I had some news.  My bad, I knew that I may have confused a few people; even some in my own family!)

However, I am super excited to do my very first swap!  
A FLIP FLOP SWAP!

About a month ago when I started our Love Redeeming series, I was having dinner with my dear friend Cara and was telling her that after the series was over I wanted to do something on my blog to take my mind off of everything I had been writing this past month.  

So as we were talking I mentioned that I wanted to do a swap of some sort and with her cute little self she excitedly blurted out "What about a Flip Flop Swap"!   Cara not only helped me come up with this brilliant idea, she also has loving stepped up to help me with it as well, so we'll be doing this together!  YAY!  

Of course, I thought that this was absolutely perfect!  How wonderful, and just in time for summer!!!  I am a LOVER of flip flops, I have even been known to wear them in the winter!  So lets start the summer out right by getting an awesome new pair of flops from a fellow blogger!

Here is how it works...

1.  Become a follower
(if you're not already) 
2.  Fill out the form below and submit!  - The form does not seem to work if you fill it out on your phone.  I'm not sure why that is the case, but when you sign up, do it from your computer.
Deadline is May 20th

3.  Sign in with Mr.Linky below :)
4.  Grab the flip flop swap button below, and tell your friends / fellow bloggers about this summery swap!  Blog about it, tweet or facebook about it.  Even put the button on your side bar! The more people we have the better!

After May 20th 

1. On May 25th you will get an email from me giving you information on your swap partner.  Get to know your partner by going to their blog and emailing one another.  Who doesn't like meeting new people in blog land?!

2.  Go shopping to find the best flip flops around!  I have looked and you can find some really fantastic flip flops for pretty cheap.
(Remember that this is fun, and you can find great flip flops anywhere from $10 - $20 almost anywhere)

3. Mail out your swap package by May 30th.

4. When you get your flip flops, blog about it!  Give a shout out to your partner and show them off for us all to see.  Also - come back to my blog on June 6th to link back up and tell others what you got in the swap.

Thanks again for your support last month!  What an awesome community of friends I have made on this blog.  Hopefully this swap will give you all a chance to get to know one another. 

THE SWAP IS CLOSED!!!
