spring blog swap & a story you NEED to see

As you may know, sweet Katie over at J&K hosted a spring blog swap.  This is my second year participating, and this time I was matched up with Jenny from Strictly Strickland's.  She put together an amazing package for me.  Seriously, she is like my sister from another mister that I just met a week ago:)  

See, there was suspense from the second I opened the box.  After reading my adorable card (guess I missed that picture) I couldn't wait to see what was inside.  Really, it is like she already knew me.  Everything inside was something I loved.  I am so lucky to have been matched up with her.

Wet N Wild Nail Polish (in Club Havana)
Flip flop picture holder
Owl car air freshener in pink sangria (one of my favorite animals and favorite scents from Bath & BodyWorks)
Cute floral cup
Notepad and pen
Pink spatula
Fresh Picked Peach hand soap by Bath & BodyWorks (another favorite of mine)
A large nail file by Bath and BodyWorks (more favorites)
Cadbury Mini-Eggs (I wait all year for these to come out)
Springtime napkins
Two Ferrero Rocher eggs (I had never seen these before, but they were amazing.  I have searched for them since, but no dice).

Thank you Jenny, for everything!!!


On a completely separate note, I watched this last night, and it warmed my heart (OK, it even made even made me a little teary).  I encourage you to watch for yourself (and read more about Caine, here).  I feel like we don't see enough good news out there.  This is a sweet and inspiring story.  Enjoy (and keep some tissues close)!

Erin, I just finished watching this 10 minute video and it's usually hard for me to watch a video for that long with my short attention span - but it was worth every minute!! Thanks for sharing this....I think I definitely need to pass this on!
