I am a sucker for gift exchanges.
I am also a sucker for getting sucked into other people's blogs. And therefore, their lives.
Recently, one of my favorite blogs advertised a chance to link up with other bloggers and exchange gifts.
Translation: Find new people to stalk on the internet AND get presents as a reward.
I was partnered up with Megan over at Absolute Mommy.
I instantly fell in love with her blog and her tell-it-like-it-is writing style.
I'm not a sugar-coater. And neither is she.
After learning a little more about each other, we went shopping.
I was inspired by one of her posts where she posted a picture of her dream blogging space. I sent her some funky new frames and desk accessories to get her started.
I had so much fun shopping for her things that I almost forgot that I was getting something in return.
And then it came!
I am in heaven.
I had told her that one of my favorite past-times is rotting my brain with gossip magazines.
And she delivered.
I didn't even mention my weird obsession with constantly making lists and notes throughout the day, but girlfriend read my mind! She sent me all kinds of cute little notepads.
Top it off with some adorable new boot socks (which I needed!) and a cute little necklace -- and you have the perfect grab bag of gifts.
I used to get a lot of care packages in the mail from my parents.
And then I got a dog.
Every package after that was puppy themed.
And then I got a husband.
The boxes are now full of dress shirts and entire wardrobes for my husband (my mom is apparently his personal shopper).
Which is exactly why I loved getting something in the mail that was just for me.
Thank you Megan!
