June/July Slant Box Reveal!!

I am so so so excited to share my experience participating in Jameson from Lessons with Coffee's SLANT Box for the first time! 

I have to be honest, I was a little intimidated by the whole thing (there are a lot of rules/details) but I decided to just dive in and do it! And I couldn't be more happy! It was such an amazing experience and I will definitely be signing up again in the future! 

Since it was my first time, Jameson made it especially easy by only giving me {one} person to trade with!

I was randomly paired up with who I can only assume is my personality twin, Jen from Sparking in Second! I had so much fun getting to know Jen! We had SO much in common! We both liked to bake, looooooved giraffes, were self identified gym rats and we both are teaching 1st grade!

The theme of this month's SLANT Box was sunshine! I love me a good theme so of course I took it SUPER literally. Jen on the other hand was much more creative! She focused on things that can be used during summer fun activities! 

Take a peek! 

 Look at her fancy handwriting! I have man writing…I think I need to take lessons from her!

Here's a look at everything she sent! I love that she labeled each item! Such a teacher ;)

My favorite was by far the popcorn, which by the way, I ate within 10 minutes of opening the box. No joke. I have a problem. 

I also really loved the personal sign she made me! It was so me. I can't wait to put it up in my classroom! Look how cute that little G is!? Jen totally knew the way to my heart!

I can't wait to use every single thing in this box! Especially the Rag Mag! Can you believe I've never read People magazine!? I've been in a pretty seriously exclusive relationship with Cosmo for the last 10 years.

And with this cute new tumbler (and my People magazine), I have no excuse but to go lay out by the pool and get my color on. Literally. I have no color right now. It's embarrassing. 

Head on over to Jen's blog to see what I got her! And if you aren't already following her, you totally should be. She is so adorably talented and fun! And besides, all the cool kids are doing it ;)

Thank you so much Jen! You are fabulous and I can't wait to talk more with you!
