Mamarazzi's Favorite Thing Swap

Earlier this week after coming home from running errands (all by myself - it was nice). I walked in the door and saw a huge package waiting for me! I was SO excited. Isn't it the best when you get an awesome package instead of bills? Well the twins were starving and as soon as they saw me they started to do their hungry cry and came crawling over. So of course I've got them hooked up to mama cow (yes, me) and I'm dying because I want to open my package so bad. I just couldn't wait! I had John and Ella open the package and read each note aloud. Ella was just as excited as I was, because she thought that the package was for her.

Jen was my swap partner and it is so weird because she sent me HER favorite things which just happened to be MY favorite things as well!!! With each item that John pulled out of the box I kept saying, "that's my favorite thing too" or "oh, I love that too"! Once in a while Ella would chirp in "me too!" Jen doesn't live to far so I'm hoping that we will be good friends. Now for all of the fun things...

-Disposable camera

-shower gel, lotion and puff gift set (yummy vanilla sugar scent)

-really cute black picture frame with 3 pictures of her favorite things - Yellowstone National Park, the Salt Lake Temple, and New Zealand

-package of coffee cakes (super tasty)

-package of fiber plus bars

-sour gummy worms and sour patch kids (which are MY FAVORITE)

-wild animal zoo toys (Ella wanted to open them right away, I almost didn't get a picture)

-Leatherby's gift card (ice cream is my favorite dessert)

-Readers Digest

-Parents Magazine (Jen read my mind because I subscribe to this magazine)

-Extra Gum

-jar of Carmel with a yummy recipe

-Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

There was a note attached to each item which told why it is one of her favorite things. This was such a fun thing to do I hope to get on board with the next swap as well. Thanks Jen for all of the fun things!!!

Mamarazzi said...

wow...what fun stuff!! you both did so well putting together such thoughtful packages for each other. very cool!

Ya know, these swaps are a LOT of work, but I love when people receive their packages and love what they get. Just knowing that over 100 women all over the United States are receiving packages of awesomeness this week thrills me!! Not to mention the bloggy friendships that are forming, it’s just way too cool!

I am thinking it's gonna be the Red, white and Blue Swap next...the poll on my sidebar shows that having the highest umber of votes...the people seem to have spoken! i DO hope you play!!
