The Results of the Pinkalicious Swap

For my blog swap partner I was assigned Lulu in Los Angeles.  She has a really fun blog and way more decorating sense than I could ever have.  For real.  I've had a lot of fun getting to know her through her blog and email. 

She sent me my package and when I opened it up I couldn't believe all the cute and fabulous pink wrapping.  Have I ever mentioned that I am the world's worst wrapper?  Seriously sorry wrapper here.  The package I sent her?  Like crumpled up pink tissue paper (which I hopefully made up for by sending her stuff she'll love).  Bottom line?  I cannot wrap.  But Lulu can!  She did a beautiful job of it:

So here are all the goodies she sent:
a very cute card with a bonus cookie recipe on it.
knee high pink and gray socks.
a piggy kitchen timer (my favorite thing - and Pierce's too!)
a pink mini bread loaf pan
a mini day planner
a pink notepad and pen
pink and white socks
pink thank you notes (can always use more thank yous!)
pink dish towels 
Isn't it awesome?  Thanks Lulu, for all of the wonderful stuff!  Love it!  :-)

If you want to participate in a blog swap, you should be following Our Dandelion Wishes, because she hosts them frequently and they always have some fun theme.

Your house will now have a little pink! Love the items she selected. The loaf pan would be great to make mini meatloaves.

Nancy said...

I agree with JDaniel4's Mom -- with all the testerone in your household, you deserve some pink. And you got it. What a great assortment of girly gifts. :)

Fun stuff! And do I spy pink leopard print wrapping paper? I love anything leopard print. I don't know why-I'm not wild:)

Oh! I love it!!! I'm jealous. I totally could have used this kind of swap this month. Now I kind of want to host my own. I have to come up with an idea that doesn't just include books. I think we need treats as moms, too!

I'm so happy you liked everything. The piggy timer was my fave too! And there was only one at the store ... I'm on the lookout for another, haha! I'm so happy we were paired up to swap, I've had a great time getting to know you and look forward to following along with your blog for a long time.
