So Many Swapping Goodies!!

Photobucket

My favorite color swap package from Sara @ Outta this World came today!!!! I had so much fun getting to know this awesome momma and picking out things for her. I seriously feel like I have a new buddy now, only we happen to live across the country :) She picked out the best things for me. Take a look:
 Here is what it looked like when I first opened it up. Such cute packing!!
 Each item was numbered 1-8 and she included a sweet note with little explanations on why she picked each item. Such an awesome idea! It made me wish I had done that :)
Here are all of my treasures laid out:
  • a totally cute candle that smells awesome
  • a blue picture frame that fits our one family picture from our vacation in the keys perfectly and is already hanging up in the family room
  • two pairs of adorable earrings
  • a beautiful necklace that I can't wait to wear
  • A bottle of blue nail polish. I try to do a little pampering every Friday night when Anthony works late, so this Friday this gets a try. I can't wait to have blue fingernails!
  • A bumgenius cloth diaper in snaps!!! I was soooooo excited to get this!!!! We are still cloth diapering part time, but I am thinking of doing it more now that James is getting older and we are getting the hang of things, so an extra diaper is worth its weight in gold!! Seriously, I could have just gotten this in the mail and I would have been ecstatic. Fluffy mail is the best!
  • Some flower print fabric that I can't wait to use. I'm thinking of looking up "decorating with fabric" on pinterest to find some ways I can display this like art. It is such a beautiful print!
  • A box of pretzel m&m's. If you haven't tried these yet, you should. They are delicious! And not too many calories, considering they are m&ms
  • A bag of cookies and cream kisses. Mmmmmm...I'm not going to lie I seriously wanted to rip open the bag and just dive right in as soon as I saw them. I plead the 5th on whether or not I actually did it...
This was so much fun, I had such a great time shopping, getting my package, and best of all making a new friend. Thanks again Sara, you are the greatest! And thanks to Mamarazzi for being such a wonderful host. I can't wait for the next one!

You are so right about fluffy mail! It's my favorite type of mail, besides swap packages!!

Mamarazzi always does an awesome job matching people together. She hasn't failed here. So glad we can call each other friends. :D
