SSS Update & SS Gift Idea



Ladies and Gents it has been a whirl-wind of a week! Amy and I beat our own deadline and now ALL SSS exchange partners names have been sent!

We have asked you to confirm that you received your partners name by replying to the email we sent. Please check your spam folders and all email accounts-some of you initally confirmed with one email and added a different email on your q&a (we used the email you listed on your q&a) 74 of you have already confirmed back via email...that means we are still waiting on a few of you...
We ended up with 104 participants-That is Fantastic! Pairing up 104 people was no easy task-we did our very best and I just hope you all will embrace the name you were given and have fun shopping for them. If you have any questions for your SSS exchange partner please contact us at the SSS email and we will try and help you get some answers.

Now since you all have your names and are ready to shop till you drop. I have another great holiday gift idea to share with you.

I LOVE personalized items-it means my girls can't take 'borrow' everything I own. I also noticed a lot of you enjoy personalized items too...






Let me introduce you to Get Dolled Up Boutique where you can find all kinds of wonderful gift ideas.

From seasonal items, bags and totes, monogrammed gifts, jewelry to stationary Get Dolled Up Boutique can take care of all your personalized gift giving needs.

I got to try one of GDUB's products: The Large Solid Tote





I chose the Chocolate brown with pink lettering and let me say this is the cutest bag I now own-it is great for when I go with my dad to his doctor appointments, I can fit Reese's laptop, magazines,books and our lunches and still have room to put more stuff in. I love polka dots and gingham so with this bag I got the best of both worlds. It is sturdy and high quality and Oh-So-Cute!

This tote is $35 which I know is over the SSS limit BUT if you have a college student or soon to be graduate this would make a great gift idea for them. They would be the most stylish student on campus.

From the site:
Makes a great Diaper Bag, Everday tote, or even big enough for an overnight trip!
Personalization Matches handles, unless otherwise requested.

*Measures 18x14
* Zipper Closure
* Metal Feet on Bottom
* Zippered Rear Pocket
* Gingham Lining
* Detachable Ribbons



I plan on buying this for Abby, she LOVES zebra print






Wanna know what is in the SSS price range?






That LOVELY ornament and you can buy it for your SSS exchange partner,your daughter or your mom for only $8 by typing in the discount code THANKYOU for 15% off at checkout...I personally LOVE ornaments and started a tradition with my own children...every year they get a new ornament then when they grow up and move out they will have a set of goodies for their first tree ...

Stop by Get Dolled Up Boutique to find your one of a kind Holiday gift, whether for a SSS exchange partner, a best friend, a daughter or a sister in law...

My confession for today: We are one day closer to daylight savings time...where here in the CST zone we get an extra hour of sleep-there are no words...Nov 1st I love you!

*disclaimer* I was given a free product for this honest review-BUT I must state beside this review, the quality of product and the cute factor of the products- I  do plan on purchasing additional items..I am sold...this is where I am suppose to say 'your expierences may vary'

  6. My parents started the same ornament tradition for us when we were kids. Your post just reminded me to call my brother because he still has my half of the ornaments. I think we will start this tradition for our own little one on the way! Thanks for the memories today!

  12. 我對於甜食的網路慾望是還好的,可有可無,但是對於專家乳酪蛋糕我就沒輒了。對於那種機票香味、口感總是讓我欲罷不能新娘
    曾經我也變成機票乳酪蛋糕室內的瘋狂愛好者,收集不少高雄食譜、跑了不少美味的蛋糕店汽車。直到有一天花園,驚覺自已的腰已經穿不下最愛的褲子時,乳酪蛋糕發威了,只好說bye-bye了。
    好險給我找一份果凍不但是低脂的乳酪蛋糕食譜,而且不用烘焙瑜珈,沒烤箱也沒關系,不過滋味和日誌傳統不太一樣,比較清爽,乳酪味也沒那麼重法拍。但是有種柔順滑嫩又清涼的口感。
    灣娶大陸和教室東南亞的新娘一年有多少萬人?新郎年紀呢?據新聞專家報導,有越來越多台灣男人娶大陸和東南亞的新娘請問有多少清潔呢?娶大陸和東南亞新娘診所的男人年紀都多大呢?
    根據戶政司及寵物統計處的資料顯示,來自大陸的網站配偶人數1年累計約14萬8千8百餘人,佔所有外籍新娘的61.61%,為外籍配偶之冠,東南亞新娘有1萬6千多人,佔37.31%,兩地區就佔外籍新娘的98.95%,顯示台灣的外籍新娘生活幾乎全部來自大陸與東南亞。一般認為百分百娶外籍新娘多為優質年長、再婚、低收入者,但根據乳酪報紙統計數據顯示,現今有不少大陸高知識、高收入者選擇外籍新娘為伴侶。

  17. You two did a great job on the SSS. I know it was a lot of hard work.
    What a cute tote bag. It would be great when I go to the library and carrying all my books.
    I collect ornaments too. I forgot to add that on my SSS questionaire. I used to buy Hallmark ornaments for things that happened during the year...a new home, a new baby, etc.
    Have a fun weekend. Is daughter wearing that costume? lol.

  20. We do the same thing with ornaments for our kids. Cool thing - my parents have done it too, so now, my 22 year son has a box of 44 ornaments to take with him when he's married. It's pretty cool. But, our tree is FULL of ornaments right now (4 kids with a total of 136 ornaments, plus the 23 ornaments of mine and my husband - we buy one for us each year as well). It's a fun tree.
