A Few of (Her) Favorite Things

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I love a good swap. The latest swap I participated in was the Mamarazzis Favorite Things Swap hosted by HolleeAnn over at Our Dandelion Wishes. My partner was Lisa over at Growing up Mo' and I'll say this . . . HolleeAnn sure knows how to pair up swap partners. Lisa & I have A LOT in common . . . reading, scrapbooking, the love of food, and of course, our love/hate relationship with "The Bachelor." I've really enjoyed getting to know her.

I received my package yesterday and let me just tell you . . . it was like Christmas morning when I was a child. I had so much fun opening up everything. I wish I had done a better job on her package. Normally, in these swaps, I take the time to wrap up everything and attach cute little explanations of the gifts, but it's been a rough week and I just didn't take the time to do it with her package. So, Lisa . . . I'm sorry!! I hope the gifts will make up for the lack of craftiness this go-round. Hopefully, I'll redeem myself in the next swap.

So, on to the important stuff . . . the pictures . . .
