Bloggy Flip Flop CARNIVAL!!

Okay, the time has FINALLY come for us to see those cute flip flops! Hopefully most of you have received your flops by now. If not, let me know so I can hunt down your flop partner and give them a firm talking to, or at the very least a bit of a guilt trip for being such a SLACKER ;-)

I ended up not participating in the exchange because there were not an even number of participants. I had actually planned to give myself a pair of flops anyway to picture here on this post, but alas, I never found the perfect pair. I was hoping to find a pair in pink and brown to match the blog, but I searched and searched to no avail. Of course I realize I can hardly host a flip flop carnival without posting a picture of some cute flip flops, SO I decided to show you the pair I received from the original flip flop swap that inspired all of this. Because they really need to be shared. My sweet friend Dawn bought these for me and I think they are SO STINKIN' CUTE! Don't you agree?

They have wedge heels!


Also, I want to give a special thanks to Tara who sent me these earrings to thank me for hosting the flop swap. She is one sweet girl and she has impeccable taste. I love them, Tara. Thank you!

(Bad picture, I know, but trust me they are cute!)
SO. Now it is YOUR TURN! If you've received your new flops, take a picture and put up a little post on your blog. Then post the link here so we can see all of the floppy cuteness!

I hope you guys had fun with this!

I do love those flops. Giraffe print is the big thing this year. Wish I had purchased myself a pair as well.

I love those giraffe flip flops. I had no idea that giraffe was the "in" thing though, Dawn needs to give us all a fashion update! Well, at least me! Thanks Alana, I got my post up!

Cheryl said...

So cute!!! I saw some very similar to those at, of all places, wal- mart. They weren't the cute giraffe print but kind of flowerly and colorful.
Thanks for hosting this!!

Sure wish I hadn't got so busy with things------I'm envious that I missed the flip flop exchange! (the two of can do one since you didn't have an even number!)


Loved the photos of William----happy Birthday sweet boy. You looked great right after birth too, I might add.

I'll have to check out Picasa----that was news to me.

I hope to be back to Blogging, I'm trying to catch up on reading right now. Missed you sweet friend!

Ok...I JUST got mine off in the mail today to Heather...I feel terrible. My hubs took the pair I bought and put them in my shoe bin in the garage...so I went out and got another pair. Yesterday I founf the original pair and sent the both out in the mail today. So, Heather will have to wait two days to get her picutres up...but she does get a bonus pair of flops!

BTW: I loved doing this...it was very fun! And I LOVE my new flip flops!

Ok... so I take a month away from blogland and see what I miss??? Waaaaaaaaah! LOL... looks like y'all had tons of fun, though!

I've always had a tough time with flip flops... the whole nothing between the toes thing. I'm getting better though. So if any of y'all don't like your new flip flops... LOL. J/K!
