Remember back in November when I told you about Sami over at Symmetry in motion & her swap? I am SO glad I did it! Sure the gifts were fun, but best of All, I made a new bloggy friend!
I totally lucked out and got paired with Mimi! I LOVE this chick! I think she is hilarious. Seriously, go read her stuff. She is so real. It's refreshing! This post made me uber jealous. Not to mention, She's Awesomely talented , totally sweet and thoughtful... even if she says otherwise. ;)
So, we had some issues with the almighty USPS. I think Mimi just might hold a grudge. Not that I blame her. She sent my pkg off on time, where as, I sent mine 3 days late. Mine got to her on the 11th and hers arrived (after we harrassed them) on the 17th. Seriously. It sat in Federal Way, WA for over a WEEK!! Not even on the way!
Worked in my favor though, cuz I got to open 5 gifts all at once! Score! I'm so not good at waiting. I took pictures of each gift individually, but I do believe my daughter deleted them. You should see the lovely shots of her nostrils I have instead. :/ But here's a big shot of all my amazing gifts!
Day #1 was a cute little silver ornament for my tree in which she went to the trouble of printing and placing a photo of Abby.
Day #2 was an adorable scarf and gloves set. Which I needed because just like every year, I can't find the gloves I bought last year.
Day #3 was adorable note paper and clothes pins. My mom stole the paper while she was here, it was that cute! (it's ok, I steal from her too. Plus, she bought me some Hope in a jar... instant forgiveness!)
Day #4 was a super cute mug with my favorite hot cocoa pkts and candy canes. I finally felt well enough to drink one tonight. Mmmmmmm!
Day #5 Is a gorgeous, long, silver necklace with little hearts and crystals on it. I love it!
Day #6 was a bag of fig scented body spray, candles, body cream and lotion. It smells a lot like Scentsy's French Kiss-which is one of my favorites!
This is where I strayed from the #'s. I'm sorry, Mimi.
Next I opened a box of treats. See the ruffles, dip, Crystal light (my fave flavor) and chocolate bar? Yeah. the chips are a replacement for picture sake and the chocolate is an empty box. Her note said she tried to think of pregnant cravings. Oh, how I needed it that day!
Day # 8 was for Abby! She got the cute little scented monkey and a puzzle of barnyard animals which is not pictured because she won't let anyone touch it. I'm so not kidding. LOVES. IT.
Then I opened the adorable tin of cookie mix because it had ripped in shipping and I was curious. Havent used it yet, but it's adorable on my counter!
The last 3, I admit, got opened on day #10 because my mom arrived and I knew things were going to get crazy. Plus, let's face it, I couldn't help myself! I got the adorable potholder and towel set, a fleece blanket to cuddle up with, AND!! The grand finale was that gorgeous crotched baby blanket!!
I loved it all!! Mimi, thank you sooo much!!! I'm truly glad that we "met" and I look forward to many more crazy email convo's. Who else wants to hear my preggo woes? LOL
