One thing I have been so excited to discover in the land of blogging was participating in exchanges. The first one I participated in wasMother’s Day Mon Exchange hosted by The Chronicles of We, Chasin’ Mason, and Sweet Turtle Soup. Each participant was assigned someone to send some goodies to.
Through the exchange I met Nina from The Joni Journey who I was given to pamper. Nina describes herself as a bookworm, girly, outdoorsy, a hummingbird-lover, who is pregnant and loves roaming Barns and Noble with a Starbucks in hand! Nina and I have many things in common… I am currently writing this in Starbucks with my Kindle nearby ready for some reading and if a hummingbird flew by the window I would be totally captivated.
After asking Nina a few questions and reading her blog I put together her package which included a Mama Bear Mug and Mama Bear Car Decal from my Etsy Shop, Barns & Noble and Starbucks Gift Cards and some cute notepads because she told me she liked making list.
I also met Michelle from Grammie Time who sent me sweet gifts! When the package arrived I was so excited to open it and so was my dog… (that nose of her letting her know that there was a special treat for her in the box too)! Michelle was so sweet to not only pamper me but she also included a little something for my two loves who I get to be a mother to (my daughter and my golden-collie). In the box was some great smelling lotion and candle, washi tape, a gorgeous infinity scarf, and nylabone bone for Presley, my dog and a book for my daughter, Ali.
I can’t even tell you how spot on Michelle was when she picked out gifts for us. First of all I loved the pretty tissue paper which I used as a background in my photos. Scarfs are my go to accessory, especially infinity scarfs, in fact I had just talked myself out of buying one the day before I got my gift so I was very excited! I really wanted to get a picture of the scarf on but I have been sick and it did not happen, but I have worn it and hopefully will feature it in a What We Wore Post. As a DIY / craft person I love cool washi tape and we love to have a scented candle lit in our home.
Presley loves these dinosaur nylabones, it is really the only thing we let her chew on. She was so excited I had to open it right away for her. Ali loves to pretend read. Books are actually one of her favorite things to play with. She will sit with a book and just babble and babble! Thank you so much Michelle for the super sweet gifts!
