These are a few of my favorite things::

Looky, looky what I got in the mail today. Although, I encouraged her not to do this, Mamarazzi

the hostess with the mostest from OurDandelionWishes, sent me this giant package of "A Few of Her Favorite Things".

See, something came up and I did not receive my package. Mamarazzi who, by the way, worked very hard on getting this swap together, sent me a package even though it was not her responsibility to do so.

I am humbled by her graciousness and generosity. You all really should go check out this wonderful woman.

Anyway, on to the package. I got some really cool stuff and some of her favorite things, have now become my favorite as well.

I got a pack of crayons..........yeah, I'm with you on those being favorite from childhood. My sad confession is, that I still love the smell of a new box of crayons. Is there a help group for this?

I got some lovely reusable shopping bags with the FishfulThinking logo on them. My daughter used one as an apron (see pic)
Love those bags.

And there were some notepads and Pens (I am a pen person, I collect pens, I love pens, it's a sickness really), with the fishful thinking logo. And this neat little book with tips on making my kids happy and resilient.

Okay, the next thing was Orbit Sweet Mint gum. Where have I been? This is the best gum I have ever chewed. I'm hooked. And no, I will not be sharing with my children.

Some super sweet Lip Balm in Strawberry Creme flavor. Just wait till Mr. ouisa gets a load of my super soft lips. yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

Some delicious traveling candies (all mine, kids. Sorry) and some Molten Chocolate Cake mixes from the Warm Delights of Betty Crocker. Yeah, those are all mine too.

Thank you Mamarazzi for doing this even though you and I both know, it wasn't necessary. I am enjoying all the gifts and I am not sharing. If that makes me bad, MY BAD then.

I hope that you will not let this discourage you from hosting other swaps. You did a great job on this one.

I love pens too...even though I DON'T NEED another one I find myself in the office supply isle "just checking" to see if there is anything new or cool out. Is there a help group for that?! (Crayons...not so much for me though!)

Enjoy your package!!! That was very sweet of her!

Your blog is super cute, I'll be checkin back soon :D
