Blogging mama lovin's

I am always so blown away with how awesome the blogging community is. I have (virtually) met some of the sweet mama's just in the short months I have been blogging and secretly wished they all lived down the street so we could have fun play dates. When I realized Mother's day was quickly approaching I emailed one of my fav ladies Erin and asked what she thought about a little gift exchange between some blogging mama's. I mean, who doesn't love getting packages via snail mail? I know it's definitely one of Rae's favorite parts of the day and what mom doesn't deserve a little something to brighten up her day?

Jess at Sadieskyboutique is one sweet mom to her beautiful little girl Sadie and if you don't already follow her you are completely missing out. We received the best package from her; complete with a tote, notebook, a seriously good book and matching mama + mini head wraps from her shop. LOVE. I was totally blown away with how cute everything was. She left the sweetest note and I cannot wait to open the book up further than page 5 and read it!

I am always looking for ways to match with Rae so I was super excited to wear these matching head wraps from Jess' Etsy shop! Rae hasn't been into headbands for quite some time, but surprisingly kept the head wrap on all day Saturday. Even if it fell off she would immediately try and put it back on. A complete win in my book. & the tote will be perfect for Farmer's market treats every weekend!

Thank you Jess for the Mother's day gift! I loved everything & seriously cannot wait to curl up in bed to read the book :) Hope you and your beautiful family had a relaxing weekend!

This was the funnest gift swap and I cannot wait to do/participate in more! Elfster was used to pick names and a $20 limit was set for the gifts. My mama I got to shop for was Ashley over at Words about Waverly and I was SO excited to go to all my favorite stores to pick her up a little something! Be sure to head over to her blog as well as the other mama's who participated to see all the goods!

    Also, I've noticed that I can't reply to your comments on my blog because your profile is set as a "no-reply" blogger. You can fix this (if you want to!) by googling "no-reply blogger" for a tutorial. I would love to be able to reply to your sweet comments!!

  4. What a lovely idea. Its so easy as mum's to spend all our focus (and shopping prowess) on our kiddies, so this is a lovely treat for mum! Totally agree, I wish we could all really have play dates! xx
