Favorite Swap Fun!

Remember the favorite swap I was posting about? I rec'd my package! What a fun surprise. My swap partner was Clare. It was interesting to find out what her favorites were. Funny, her favorites were some of mine too! Everything was wrapped so sweetly and did I mention she included prizes for my kids?
They squealed with the coloring books and crayons she sent and kept saying "Thank you, Care". So cute. While they were coloring their little hearts out, I got to enjoy opening my package in peace. I have a container addiction and she must have known, because there were 3 adorable tins with roosters on them filled with goodies. Jellybeans(yum), Caramel chews, and one of my favorites, Burt's Bees supplies! Macadamia nuts were included in the box, but my husband has confiscated those. She added 2 soaps in the shapes of lobster and starfish. She loves lobster and represented that in a super cute way. Michael is carrying it everywhere with him....he's a future oceanographer, I swear. Yay, for dishtowels! She sent 3 red, white, and blue just in time for the 4th. Another obsession I have is....paper napkins. Thank you Clare, for adding to my stock...I love that healthy? She also sent Natalie a fun toy and a Family Fun magazine, which is my favorite! Lastly, she sent a wonderful hand-made card with the sweetest note inside and a green crocheted...that she crocheted....trivet/hot plate for me. Thank you for taking the time to send these little parts of you to me, a complete stranger. It really made me smile and will continue to do so whenever I use any of it.

I'm so glad you liked your box! I loved the one you sent me, too!
That's funny about Michael and the lobster. Tell him my brother actually studied marine biology at the University of Hawaii! (That was a long, long time ago.) Any time you want to come over here to Long Island, we'll certainly take Michael and the rest of you to the beach!

Oh, P.S.--tell your husband that next time I sent macadamia nuts, they are for you, LOL! But...I don't mind if you share! (I'm just kidding...but I sure hope you got a few of those.)

I have a paper napkin obsession too... Marc has informed me that we don't have room for anymore! Oh, and Burt's Bees -- yummy.
