The Great Pumpkin Swap Link-up!

Also, I must add that it's time to retire these boots.  They have a hole in the back.  

Dress: Target (2012) // Boots: Decree (2011) // Scarf: gift

My plain brown Madden Girl boots have a detached sole too, so they're pretty much garbage.  This is what I get for buying mid-range boots.

I just ordered some gray boots (also mid-range), but they're a different brand and I haven't read reports of them falling apart.  I have read reports of Madden Girl boots falling apart = no more Madden Girl boots for me.

Oh, problems.

Today's the day to link up what you sent or received from your partner in The 2nd Annual Great Pumpkin Swap.

I love giving gifts.  I love blog swapping.  I love being able to bless others with something to brighten their day.  Even if it's just with something simple, like a package of fall treats.  

(Can you sense that there's an excuse coming?)

I'm just so incredibly bad at taking care of things like this in a timely manner.  So that's probably why my partner hasn't received her gift yet. 

 I admit that my procrastination caught up with me.  I had the gift.  Then I needed to make sure I had the right address because she was traveling. Then, my local post office keeps weird hours: 10am-2pm Monday-Friday.  So when I was in Mansfield on Friday, I managed to get into the post office and buy the supplies and seal up the gift for Karen, my partner.  As soon as I pulled out my wallet, the lady reminded me that I needed a customs form because it was going to Canada.  She was really nice though.  Sometimes those post office people aren't nice.  I don't remember having good post office experiences in Alaska, um, ever.  

Karen ran into an issue when it came to mailing out my package too.  So I'll share that as soon as I get it.   

Thank you so much for your participation in this swap!  I know we all love fall and we all love goodies.  I love sharing this time of year with you guys :)  Thanks for co-hosting, Becky!
