Swappin' Love!!

Red White and Blue Swap

I am totally addicted to swapping! I think it has become a small obsessions. I mean really who doesn't like to get a box of goodies in the mail??? Mamarazzi hosts some pretty great swaps, and this one was the "Red, White and Blue" swap.  I L-O-V-E the Fourth of July and anything with it.

Being on a really tight budget I tried really hard to be really thoughtful, it was a lot of fun buying for my partner Sara. {go peek at her blog...her and hubby have been married for 7 years and have such a cute family}

Here is what I got in my box!!! See... random goodness coming in the mail just for ME!!! I need to tell you that all this came all wrapped up and cute little notes with each one. But excitement got the best of me.... {and the fact that my hooligans were outside for a moment} I tore into each gift by myself.  {can you blame a girl}

Let me tell you all the goodness that was on my door step. A really cute apron. {I have a love affair with aprons... and I like to put on a pair of pearls when I have an apron on. It's quirky I know... but hey...}

I got some red, white and blue candles and a white smelly candle. And some festive straws and some star necklaces... all of which I am using for the 4th this year. We are just going to stay in because the 4th is on Sunday, but nothing says we can't have a colorful meal.

She sent some flip flops. I am always loosing mine so it's nice having an extra pair around.

A really cute picture frame... the kind that has the ribbon around it and you just slip the pictures into. So cute!!!

And my favorite gift by far is a nursing cover {green with squares} Sara made it!!! I am such an bad nurser... I have such a hard time with it and I'm excited not to have to fuss with a blanket. I'm so impressed with people who sew. {I'm just still trying to sew a straight line}

Thank you!!! Thank you Sara so much for all the Red, White and Blue goodness!!! {You really have no idea how much I needed a life that day!}

Now I have to patiently wait for Mamarazzi to host another swap......
