Spring Swap 2014

 Katie from Tomorrow With A Smile and Stormy from Life's A Dance recently hosted a spring package swap.  This was my 4th year participating, and I got a really terrific partner.  I was paired with Brandi from Raising Kid Clammy.  I enjoyed reading her blog and exchanging emails with her to learn what she liked (you can pop over there and see what was in her box).  Then I got to shop.  I love sending these package as much as receiving them, and this was no exception.

I am always stoked to receive fun mail, and let's face it, I mostly get junk and bills.  When my husband told me I had a package waiting for me at home, the work day seemed like it would never end. It finally did.  Just an hour and fifteen minutes worth of traffic later, there I was, box cutter in hand, filled with the anticipation of what was inside.  Here is a peek. 

I love scented candles.  I had been hearing so much about the Target red velvet cupcake candle that has been sweeping the vlogging world, and I was so excited to receive this.  It smells as amazing as it sounds (and so does the French vanilla candle next to it).

Sour candy is my absolutely favorite.  It is also my husband's favorite, and these bags disappeared shortly after this picture was taken.  

Adorable note cards and matching pens.

Two lovely new shades of nail polish to try out.

And finally, this adorable pug card and a treat for my pups.

Meatball loves the way it squeaks.

Thank you, Brandi!
