[Boy Mom Box Swap] The Goods!

Thursday, June 23, 2016

You guys, I'm not gonna lie. I've been pretty excited about this day since we announced the Boy Mom Box Swap last month. Its finally the day that we get to reveal what we got! I hope you all are as excited to share as I am because I am SO excited to share what we got!

Our package arrived late last week and it being Father's Day weekend and all, we didn't have much time to open the present this weekend. I saved the box for earlier this week when I knew we'd need to kill some time between coming home from school and when dinner was ready. My plan worked perfectly and Mason LOVED what he got!

Mason and I were paired with Suzie and Niko. They don't have a blog that I could link you to, but let me just say that I wish Suzie did! We emailed back and forth a few times and I seriously wish we lived closer (and you'll see when I reveal what we got below), but Niko and Mason would probably be the best of friends! After emailing with Suzie a bit, I immediately knew what I wanted to get her and what I wanted to get Niko. Since Suzie doesn't have a blog, I'm going to give you a sneak peek as to what Mason and I got for them, but not until after you see what they sent us.



I gave Mason the box and basically let him go to town. He started opening all of the individually wrapped presents for him as well as for me. Of course he wasn't interested in the presents for me after he opened them, but he did enjoy ripping the tissue paper off of them in the meantime.

So, what did we get? THE BEST PRESENTS EVER. Here's everything.




For me, I got some swedish fish (my FAVE!), a Starbucks card (also a fave!), and some washi tape/washi dispenser. I don't even remember telling Suzie that I like swedish fish or washi tape and she sent these. I think we were best friends in another life or something! I LOVED it all!


Mason got tons of goodies also, all of which he was obsessed with. He was in pure heaven opening this box full of stuff.

First of all, he got some new Blaze and the Monster Machine monster trucks. He immediately ripped open the Blazing Speed Blaze and has not put it down since he opened it a couple days ago. He loves that Blaze! We also got Stripes and Crusher... both of which we already had, but I was able to exchange them at Target for two that we didn't have - Panda Bear truck and Joe. It's hard to believe we still have a few that we don't have since we seriously have an army of monster trucks taking over our living room.




While the Blaze truck was definitely the high light of the box, Mason loved everything else that he was given -- Paw Patrol bubbles, a Paw Patrol puzzle, some Cheez-its, and some Hot Wheels cars.

Once he got all of his Blaze trucks all set up (Blazing Speed Blaze, regular Blaze, and Camo Blaze), then it was time to work on the puzzle!



Mason and I seriously cannot thank Suzie and Niko enough. Their present was PERFECT for us and we LOVED every single thing in the box. Thank you, Suzie and Niko!!!

So, now that you saw what they got us and what makes Mason happy, this is what Mason and I got for Suzie and Niko.

Almost identical, right? We got Niko some Blaze and the Monster Machine monster trucks and I got Suzie some treats. So crazy! See, I'm telling you, we were destined to be friend!

Did you participate in the Boy Mom Box Swap? Link up with Stephanie, Sarah, and I and show us what goodies you got! I can't wait to see what you all got from your partners!

  5. How funny that you sent each other similar things... Definitely best friends in another life! And how perfect that you were able to swap the trucks out for ones you didn't have. They make so many varieties... Smart marketing! And if I was sent Swedish fish Noah would have been sure to steal them from me.. They are his favorite!
