Today is the day that we get to share what we got our partners for the Mother's Day Mom Exchange. I've been looking forward to this day ever since we announced the exchange a few weeks ago! I just love being able to spoil someone on a holiday (or birthday) and what better way to spread the love on Mother's Day than to give each other something to make each other feel special. I can't wait to see what everyone got!
As for me, I was actually partnered with Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup, the other host of this exchange. It totally wasn't planned, it happened by coincidence, but I was really excited to get to send something her way. Once I saw who my partner was, I knew exactly what to get her. If you are familiar with her or her blog, you know she loves Disney. She lives by DisneyWorld and goes there often. Me? I live on the other side of the country by... Disneyland! Without giving away too many details, her gift miiiiiiight be something from Disneyland, but you have to check out her blog to find out what.
My partner ended up being Sarah from Seeing All Sides. I was super excited to find out that I was paired with her because I love her and her blog and I've noticed that she has similar taste to me in things. I knew I was in for some good stuff and... she didn't disappoint!
Mason was with me when I got the gift in the mail and he literally could not wait to tear into it. I gave him the present that Sarah sent for him (so sweet!) but then he moved right on down to my presents and helped me see what was inside each of them too.
Right? Doesn't she know me so well?
First up was a gorgeous scarf! I mean, seriously, so pretty. I love the flowers and I love the blue. I don't have anything like it (which is actually shocking considering how many scarves I have) so plan to see a lot of this scarf in pictures in the future!
Next up was a bunch of fun stuff from my favorite store -- Target! She found these super cute can coolers, some fun hair ties, a list pad (perfect because I make TONS of lists!), some fun pens, and some super cute note cards. She also sent me a chocolate bar (I love chocolate!) and a Starbucks gift card (I LOVE Starbucks!).
And last but not least, she sent these cute window clings for Mason! He literally could not open them fast enough and stick them on the window.
I don't know how she did it, but she picked everything perfectly. It was as if I was at the store shopping for myself!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the exchange again this year. Courtney and I had a great time organizing it and really appreciate your participation! We hope to see you back here again next year for more Mom spoiling :) But for now, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
