Good Monday morning friends. Hope you all had fabulous weekends I spent my Valentine's Day at church helping take care of kiddos so the mommies and daddies could go out to dinner and have couple a time. I had a blast playing duck duck goose and red rover. :) Not to worry my sweet husband took me out to dinner the night before and I got to wear my fabulous headband I got from Mrs. Katie!
But wait I'm getting ahead of myself so let's back up. Back in January Katie At Loves of Life decided that she wanted to give all her bloggie land friends a way to send a little Valentine's cheer to fellow bloggers. So she decided to host a swap we all signed up and filled out a little form with our addresses and our favorite things, a couple weeks later we were matched up with a partner to send goodies to in honor of Valentine's Day. :) I squealed with delight when I got Katie the mastermind herself as my swap partner. I had a blast shopping for goodies for her and I hope she enjoyed them all.
That brings us to last Friday when my swap package arrived well actually I'd been told it was sitting in my apartment office since Wednesday but they didn't call me til Friday to come get it. So anyway when I got the call that it was there I raced home on my lunch break to pick it up knowing otherwise I wouldn't be able to get it til today. Well Katie spoiled me let me tell you well actually let me show you. Here's a pic of my goodies after I'd pawed through them I should've taken the picture first because Katie had it situated all cute and I didn't do as good a job but you get the idea and get to see the super cute basket she sent everything in.
PS I may or may not have already busted open that bag of Reeses hearts :P
Anyway from the package you can see I got a way cute journal that's brown and pink it couldn't have come at a better time as I was getting to the end of my prayer journal and needing a new one so this one is now officially my prayer journal I broke it in with it's first prayers this morning. I actually write out my prayers during my quiet time it helps me stay focused and it's wonderful to go back later and see how God has moved in my life. I also got a cute notepad which I snapped up and toted back to work with me to replace my plain ugly yellow one it makes me smile taking notes for work on such pretty paper. There was also some chapstick and a way cute headband and of course a very sweet card. I was all excited to wear my headband to dinner Friday night with hubs and friends but he convinced me I should save it for church on Sunday so I didn't and then he surprised me with dinner out on Saturday night to celebrate Valentine's and of course I wore my headband. Don't laugh at my mirror pic hubs was taking a shower and couldn't take it for me.
I know it's super duper cute!!
I had so much fun participating in this swap thank you Katie for hosting and for being a fabulous partner :)
I hope if you partcipated too you had a blast and if you didn't maybe you'll consider it next time. Happy belated Valentine's Day.
