Imagine my excitement when my doorbell rang last week and the mailman was standing there with THIS package!

It was my Favorite Things Swap package from Amy!

After prying it gently removing it from Cole's hands, I tore into the box like Christmas morning.

Look at the beautifully wrapped gifts with clues as to what was inside.

And here are a few of Amy's favorite things.

1. A beautiful bracelet.

She said it was one of her hobbies, so I am assuming she made it. What a crafty partner I got!

2. A Brown Sugar Disc.

How is it that I have lived in the south all my life and not owned one of these? You may have saved a life sista!

3. Yummy smelling soap.

4. Apple Cider Packets.
If I make this will fall come quicker?
5. A beautiful picture frame.
6. A cute little note pad with pen.

How I love to make lists. This will come in handy!

7. A glass pumpkin jar full of DOVE chocolate.

Well, it was full until....

Now you may ask yourself...Self I wonder what Wendi sent Amy?

Wonder no more.

Here are a few of my favorite things:

1. Twilight.

My swap partner, Aly, from a previous swap sent me this book. I could not have imagined how much I would enjoy it. So much so that I think I am in love with one Edward Cullen. I got Amy a copy because I want her to love it as much as I do.

2.Stride Sugarless Gum.

3. Burt's Bees Lip Balm.

The best I tell ya.

4. A magnetic book mark personalized with the letter "A".

5. Bath & Body Works. I sent the honeysuckle scent, but I have many favorites.

6. Personalized note cards .

I still enjoy a hand written card, don't you?

7. Poppycock- Chocolate Lovers.

It is pecan and almond popcorn clusters drizzled in chocolate and caramel.

Need I say more?

Thanks Amy for being such an awesome swap partner.

I now have a few new favorite things.

I hope you enjoyed a few of mine!

I enjoyed the swap vicariously through you, though Brown sugar disc is a totally alien concept to me I am afraid.
