CuppaKim’s Annual Mug Swap 2013

This is my second year participating in Kim’s aka CuppaKim Mug Swap! I was so excited to hear that it was that time again! I got super excited. And then I realized that I had to have my package mailed out right before I left on vacation! Luckily, I work well under pressure!

Mug Swap!

I was given Kristen Cheney as the person to whom I was sending a package to. I follow Kristen on Instagram and I knew that she was a runner like me. Which it pretty exciting! I also found out that she likes to bake. So I ummm went a bit overboard when I sent out my package.

I went shopping at Daiso which is a local Japanese store and picked up some fun baking goodies, a mug, and other miscellaneous items. I also added in some Nuun because I’m a huge fan of Nuun, and everyone should stay hydrated!

While I was gone on vacation, I received an awesome package from Tegan. She sent a fun box with a turquoise sparkly cup, fun straws, and Starbucks Refreshers! You know that I love sparkly things! It was awesome to see this surprise when I arrived home from Yosemite! Thanks Tegan!

Super fun package that I received from @teganaubrie for @cuppakim Annual Mug Swap! Love the sparkly "mug", super cute straws, and Starbucks drink pouches! #mugswap2013
