Valentine's Day Swap - What I Got!


A couple weeks ago, the lovely Erin and Megan put together a Valentine's Day swap.  I don't really make a big deal out of Valentine's Day and usually don't get much from Tyler (although this year he outdid himself).  But I love "meeting" other bloggers and I love getting mail so I jumped right in on this!

I got Jessica at Pretty Physicist.  You can go over there and see what I got her!

And I'm pretty sure the sweetest, most thoughtful person out there got my name.  Elise over at Books Bottles & Bags obviously did her homework.  When I opened the cute little package, the first things I see are this...


She bought both kids something!  Tyler was watching me open this (probably wondering who the heck I was getting a Valentine's present from, haha) and we thought this was the nicest thing.

Kyla got fancy pens, which of course, she is obsessed with!  See, I told you Elise did her homework.  Kyla loves writing with pens.  We had to open them right up and start scribbling drawing.


Kase got cute little socks, which served as a teething toy for awhile.


I got a Kiwi candle that has already been used several times, nail polish (that I tried out on Kyla, but she's too impatient to let it dry), a Hershey bar (my favorite!) and the nicest card.  And you better believe that Kyla will be sharing those cool pens with her Mama.  I love a color coordinated planner :)


Thank you so much, Elise!  I love everything!

And of course, thank you to Erin and Megan for putting this fun little swap together!

  2. How fun! I have always thought it would be so fun to do one of these swaps, but I have never committed yet, because I am worried I just have a little too much on my plate right now to commit to it. Soon though! :)

    When you wrote the candle has been used, I was thinking, weird that the girl sent her a used candle, haha! It took me a min.! ;) (It's early!) What sweet gifts though! And chocolate on Valentine's Day is perfect.
