Mother's Day Gift Exchange

One of my favorite parts of this blogging community is the the sweet relationships I have made with so many fellow bloggers & the support we all give to each other.  Recently, I was honored to be a part of a Mother's Day gift exchange with a few of my favorite mama bloggers.  As much as we all love giving to our littles, we definitely all can relate to how demanding being a mom is & how much we all deserve something special once in a while, too. :)

Thank you to Karra of Just Us & Rae for hosting this, I was also so lucky to be paired with her! She sent over the most thoughtful gift, I'm pretty sure I haven't taken a bath since Waverly was born 21 months ago (more like 5-minute showers) so I can't wait to use these for some "me" time soon.  She also sent over this adorable camera strap that she made herself, I already put it on my camera & just love it!  The print is perfect & makes taking pictures that much more fun, this gift really couldn't be more perfect since it's probably pretty evident that I kind of like a picture. ;)
 

I drew Erin, I was so excited to send her over a special little something for being the bad-ass mama she is!  She recently mentioned on her blog that she loves Williams Sonoma maragarita mix (did you all know they have a new skinny version!), I obviously couldn't think of a more perfect gift.  I mean, every mama needs & deserves a margarita, right?!

All of the mamas who were part of this exchange are listed below:

Karra - Just Us & Rae
Erin - Hello Erin
Jess - Sadie Sky Boutique
Colleen - Meet the Sullivans

I also wanted to thank everyone for your sweet comments on our weekend yesterday & of course, for your support of our disaster of a road trip.  Several people asked about the trip back, I do have to give some major credit to my girl.  The car ride back to VB was so much better than the one there, Waverly fell asleep as we were pulling out of the parking lot & didn't wake up until we only had about an hour to go.  I'm pretty sure it was from all that college partying she did all weekend (girlfriend can hang), yet whatever the case, I happily took it.

Happiest Tuesday to you all, hope you all are enjoying some warm weather your way!
XOXO

  7. Ahhhhh a bath! I would love to take a bath, but there is just never enough time --- unless I hop in with O, but that wouldn't be quite as relaxing. The gift exchange was so much fun! xoxo
