Hey there! Well, the summer of hell is officially over so I can resume my time here with ya’ll--which I’m thrilled about. I’ve missed my spot in the blogosphere so much! I can’t wait to get back into the swing of the things. I’ll give a more detailed look into everything that has gone down later, but I just wanted to touch base with ya’ll quickly before we run and pick up our baby girl from her grandparents’ house.
Today, I want to reveal my package I received from Jacinta’s Sweet Summer Swap over at My Beauty Boxes. This was a little fun swap that I signed up to do with some other girls back in May. This was the first package swap I have done. I’ve done a mug swap before, but this one was a little bigger. This was such a fun way to get to know other bloggers and find new and exciting blogs out there. I was excited to get my package from NYC from a blogger that is just awesome! Her name is Kristina and she is definitely a must check out. Her blog From City Corporate to Suburb Mama is filled with inspiration and excitement! We actually have several things in common and she did an awesome job picking stuff out for me.
How cute is that owl mug?! I have a serious love for owls (and coffee), so this just made my day! Plus the fun little owl note pad with the personalized note just completed the package J If she only knew how bad I am about losing pens, she would know how much that bundle of pens means to me!! AND to make it even better, they are the little injection pens in different colors, which I haven’t seen in years. The nurse in me is thrilled! She also sent me a coconut chamomile body lotion. It is a solid lotion and I’ve not been able to use it yet, but if it’s anything like other solid lotion bars I’ve used, I’m sure it will be awesome!
There you have it! If you’ve never taken part in a blog swap, I’d highly recommend it. It was so much fun putting together a package for other someone you know nothing about…as strange as that sounds. I have family members that are harder to buy for! Hop on over to www.mybeautyboxes.com and see what the other girls got!
