Happy Valentines Day to ME!

Woohoo!!! My Valentines swap came today! Caroline had me and let me just tell you, she is SO creative! This girl puts me to shame! Firstly, kudos for packing it in such a cute padded envelope! I love it! She attached a note to each and every item with a cute little ribbon! Thanks for putting so much time into it!
My daughter was SUPER excited (even though it is not for her) and she begged me if she could open it. She gave me the whole sob story that she never gets mail....so, I caved and let her open it, but as she took the things out of the package I took pictures of each thing!
Here is the beautiful package (excuse the coaster, but I had to cover up addressess! This is a public blog, y'all!)

The "R" luggage tag! Which I will definitely use this May when I go to Miami!

Yummy chocolates! These are SO not good for my diet! Too bad I ate them all already!

Valentines Day notecard set! (Caroline, be on the look out for one of these back to ya, girl!)

Valentines Day dish towels! I don't have any Valentines ones, so these are perfect!

Playful pez! I seriously feel like a kid again! I had to FIGHT my daughter for these! I won, of course!

And of course I had to get a picture of myself in there to prove I was there when we opened the package! 'Yea, that's right! I'm posin' hard! Ha! Ha!
These are the cutest spatula's ever!!!!

And by popular request, here is a recent picture of my little man! His recent obsession is Thomas and Friends. He wore some pajamas last night with pictures of Thomas on them and he wouldn't stop looking and pointing at his pajamas!
Also, he is crawling, throwing a ball, saying "da da", "baby", "by bye"!!! I'm such a proud mommy! Now, if I could just get HIM to say "momma"!!!! Videos to come soon!

THANK YOU SO MUCH CAROLINE! It's so great to have a new blogger friend!

GREAT post and great gift. Caroline fixed you up! I love how you ate all your chocolates already. That would have been me. I would have eaten them before I posted and just had the empty heart to take a picture of. You need to get Alex involved in the next swap. She would love it!

And that precious little boy of yours is TOO CUTE! I love his head full of hair and his smiley face. What a cutie.

Good job Caroline!

Great job, Caroline. I especially love the towels. I needed those to go w/ Jenius' placemats! Where did you get them!??!

Rose said...

I love that luggage tag... and all the goodies...

Denise said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your baby's hair! He is such a cutie!

Your swap stuff is great! I love the spatula and towels! Cup cakes are so HOT this year!

Donna said...

Denise, that sounded like Paris Hilton...'cupcakes are so HOT'.

Toni Rivera said...

Awww...Thanks you guys! I've been contemplating when I should cut his hair. I just keep waiting and waiting. I just know that as soon as I cut it, he won't look like momma's little baby anymore, but he'll look like a little man :(
