Mother's Day Exchange

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Even though spoiling our little ones is an absolute joy, I was super excited to do some momma-spoiling and take part in a Mother's Day exchange, hosted by some lovely mommas - Elizabeth, Jenny, and Courtney

I received the most thoughtful box of goodies from Emily. It was so fun to open my box and see a fun (and inspiring) box within. This is absolutely perfect as I'm a hoarder of all things sentimental; I like to keep special cards, handwritten notes, etc. My current box is filled to the brim so I will be using this absolutely appropriate box now for those special treasures. 
Emily was on top of it and picked up on a mention of 'mimosas'. This little bottle will be poppin' this weekend, for sure.
Emily included all things green, which is my fave. It's a pretty good bet I'll be rocking green toe nails all summer long. Hand cream can always be found on my night stand so this will be put to good use. I'm looking forward to a few laid back minutes enjoying this face mask!!
And special gluten free chocolate bars, yes please.
Emily!! Thank you thank you for such an awesome package!! :) You seriously are so sweet and thoughtful and I appreciate your kindness. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day with your adorable Avery. Thanks again momma!!

Jen was my match, and is a momma-to-be, expecting their first baby in July. I was immediately so excited for her as I remember the excitement surrounding that special time in life!! In haste of getting her package off, I didn't take any pictures of what I sent her, so go check Jen's instagram to see..!! I included a candle, Fit Pregnancy magazine, fun magnets, my favorite lip stuff, some mascara (because I read in an old blog post, that was her go-to-don't-leave-the-house-without-it makeup/item), some chocolate (because she's pregnant), and a few other fun goodies. It was especially fun to spoil a momma-to-be as she prepares for the most important 'job' she'll ever have.. 
Congratulations again, Jen!! Hope you enjoyed your goodies. :)

Thanks again ElizabethJenny, and Courtney for hosting!!
