Mamarazzi's Favorite Things Swap...SWAPPED!



It's finally here...

The time has FINALLY come for Mamarazzi's Favorite Things swap packages to be...swapped! If you participated in this event, I think you probably share my excitement. If you did not participate in this event (well, you should have!) and you may not share my excitement...but think about the thrill of getting something sent to you in the mail from someone you've never met and know practically nothing about. You may think, "What could they send me that I would want?...or...What if I don't like anything they send?" Ok, so I thought that too. I actually had many small anxiety attacks while deciding what I was going to send to Rebecca. I realize it is MY FAVORITE THINGS, but I wanted her to LOVE them too! You see the stress involved here? However, let me assure you, the end results are so super fabulous that you would never doubt a "favorite things swap" again...ever. Are you pumped? Do you want to see what I got?

First of all, isn't this the cutest wrapping?! Cute wrapping impresses me...I was impressed.

Rebecca spent so much time on details. She wrapped each of my gifts individually and attached these adorable cards on the outside of each gift and tucked a "follow up" card on the inside of each gift! Is that adorable or what?! For instance, the outside card would say something like "making organization cute" (a favorite thing) and the inside card would say "makes bill paying more fun" and the gift was some cutsie file folders w/ polka dots! One of my other favorite cards was "having a cupcake picnic at the Georgetown waterfront" and the inside card read "Georgetown waterfront not included". The gift was a box full of everything needed to make some cupcakes with cupcake papers, mix, icing, sprinkles, cute picks...the whole nine yards! She is so clever!



I'm telling you, this package was loaded! Oo ooo, I almost forgot about these until I just saw them in my picture. She sent me those way cool disposable toothbrushes made by Colgate or Crest or one of those toothpaste people...Wisps. I LOVE THESE!!! I've been wanting to try them, but had never remembered to look for them! Thanks, Rebecca...and all the people at work will thank you too the next time we have Bogies Hamburgers for lunch, so good, but those onions do a number on your breath.



As you can tell in the pic above, she also included her FAVORITE rainy day comfort food - Kraft Mac and Cheese (me too Rebecca!), all the things to make a delicious nutritious bowl of yummy oatmeal (bowl included), and these handy-dandy one serving almond butter packets (you have no idea how perfect this is for me...I have issues with portion control on many things...peanut butter, or almond butter in this case, being the #1).

Some things you can't see (but they're there) are...

  • glitter glue pens (because things are just better with glitter)
  • purple pens (for doting the i's and crossing the t's w/ style)
  • a "J" notepad (I love my initial too, Rebecca :)
  • cutsie colored paper clips
  • awesome lip gloss(es)...(for keeping lips soft and kissable)

last, but not least

  • Lindt truffles...can I get a "woot woot" for some yummy chocolate!

Thanks to Mamarazzi for hosting a FABULOUS swap! (You can go to her page and click on the Mr. Linky to read post about all the other swap packages!)

I can't wait until the next one! I also can't wait to see what everyone else got...so, hurry up and post some pics already!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Jenny! This package looks too great for words! I love it. Creative people make my heart sing. I will click over on her page and say hi immediately!

About being out in public in a bathing suit, I am not kidding. No one cares. If you are a beached whale then I am a CLASS of BEACHED whales and no one cares less about me at the pool.

I think you are fantastically beautiful!

Mamarazzi said...

AWESOME! i love it all from the beautiful packaging to the sweet and funny notes to the loot itself!

Ya know, these swaps are a LOT of work, but I love when people receive their packages and love what they get. Just knowing that over 100 women all over the United States are receiving packages of awesomeness this week thrills me!! Not to mention the bloggy friendships that are forming, it's just way too cool!

I am deciding between a Red, White & Blue Swap or another Favorite Things Swap for the end of June...did you vote? There is a poll on my sidebar!
