My SISTER has a blog!!!!

A couple of months ago my sister started a blog! She has been tweaking it and learning along the way how blogging works. Recently she has been blogging periodically. She's a senior in high school and always on the go. I'm so sad I didn't think of blogging while I was in high school. I would have LOVED to look back at my high school posts!! A couple of days after I got engaged she surprised me with a sweet gift and she has written a post on it to share with y'all!
So here she is!!

Hey yall, my name is Madison from Initially Yours, MK. I was ecstatic when Shelby asked me to do a guest post on her blog! This is my first guest post so I decided to write about the engagement basket I made for my sister, Shelby.

So I got the idea from Pinterest and I tweaked it a little bit to make it fit the needs of my sister.
I started out by buying this basket at Walmart for $1.

I then picked out two wedding magazines for her to flip through and get ideas from. $5.99 and $6.99 a piece.

I bought a spiral notebook for her to write down any wedding notes down in. $2.47

I bought a cute chevron note pad for .88 and Paper Mate Pens for $4.97. Next I bought sticky note tabs for Shelbs to mark certain spots in the magazines for any ideas she likes. $1
My mom helped me pick out a cute little sign just to put in for decoration $5 and a bottle of relaxing body wash $5.97.

To top the basket off I picked out a candle $3.00, sticky notes $1.27, and Essie nail polish $8 because the bride to be's nails must ALWAYS be painted perfectly when showing off her ring. Also I placed a bottle of Welch's Sparkling Grape Juice in because I know it's her favorite and it's non alcoholic of course!

She was really surprised and loved it!
It was really exciting to see her reaction when she received the basket. And I cannot wait for her wedding!!!!

Any ideas about what else can be added?

Initially Yours, MK
