Today I received my special swap package from McMommy and let me just say that SHE ROCKS! I am not sure what I liked more, the goodies or her awesome note to me, explaining why she sent each item. But… included in the box (among other things) was some chocolate and a magazine (two of MY favorite things!!).
Now of course I am going to show you everything that I was lucky enough to receive but first I have to share with you an email exchange and part of the aforementioned note from McMommy.
Snippet of email from Elaine to McMommy:
Oh and I just wanted to let you know that a certain 4-year old helped me “wrap” the items so that’s why they are a little funny looking! ; )
Snippet of email response from McMommy to Elaine:
Elaine, you are going to DIE LAUGHING OF IRONY when you read what I wrote to you.I can’t reveal anything else…….just you’ll see. OMG, now I can’t wait!!!! This is going to be the longest couple days of my life. I can’t stop laughing!!!! And I can’t even tell you why!!!
Snippet of first paragraph (after some really sweet salutations!) from McMommy’s note included in package:
I apologize that it looks like Matty & Carter wrapped your gifts. (Shoot! Why did I just admit I wrapped them?! I could have just said right from the start ‘My precious little boys wrapped each of your gifts with love! Aren’t they just so cute?’ and there was nothing you could have said about the hideous wrapping job at that point other than, ‘AWW! They did a good job for a 4 year old and an 18 month old?’ Geez. Sometimes I need to think better on my feet.)
Ok, so can I just tell y’all how funny I think this is because here’s the pic of what she sent before I unwrapped it all:
Hello people, how cute is this?? Yeah, you shoulda seen what hers looked like (McMommy I don’t know if you have received your stuff yet but if you haven’t please accept MY apologies, really!)
Anyway, now that I have already shared too much, here are the items that were in those cutely wrapped packages.
1. The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot. I don’t read a lot of books but I WILL be reading this one. An entire book in email format. How cool is that?
2. Two note pads, one for the fridge that says “When I get tired of shopping I sit down and try on shoes!” and another for my purse that says “High maintenance doesn’t begin to cover it.” (p.s. I also sent her a similar note pad for the fridge! great minds…)
3 & 4. Halloween candy corn garland & a spider dish. I was just thinking about how I don’t have enough Halloween decor. Thank you!!
5. Sweets! Sour patch kids (LOVE THEM!), Starburst, Cadbury chocolate and Trident. It’s ALL good!
6. The latest issue of First magazine. Which will be read from cover to cover.
Thank you McMommy! You are a wonderful swap partner and you are SO right, we must find a way to meet the next time you mosey on over to Texas! : )
