A Fun Halloween Swap




I particpated in a Halloween Swap over on Susan's blog.  My swap partner is Cherie.  I was so excited to get her package in the mail today!  When I opened the box, there was all this FUN stuff in it!  Cherie sent me a funny card with the sweetest note inside.  I also got Bath and Bodyworks Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Handsoap (smells so good!) and Candy Apple lotion and hand sanitizer (yum), Yankee Candle Autumn Leaves Room Spray (awesome), Yankee Candle Autumn Splendor car freshners (oh yea), Ghiradelli Dark Orange Chocolate Bar (I have it in a secret hiding place!) and two (much needed) dish towels...and one other suprise I will get to in a minute!




I really loved everything...it's almost like Cherie knows me!  I'm not a big spender...maybe because we don't often have the extra money, but also because I've never been good at buying things for myself.  The things Cherie sent me are things that I really enjoy but would not typically splurge on.  It's funny, since the fall things have come out at Bath and Body Works, I have been in that store several times...smelling all the fall goodness....and not once buying a single thing!   Believe me, I want to...but I'm really good at leaving empty handed!


And here's the last suprise that Cherie put in my box.......








Wax Lips for Brady and I!



Brady was so excited about these lips!  He even asked if he could take them to school tomorrow.  Um, no. (He would let everyone try them out....ewww!)   How sweet was Cherie to send something for Brady?!  I mean is that nice or what?!  I think I like her ALOT!



Thank you Cherie for your sweet, kind, fun, tasty, thoughtful and useful gifts!  It has been great FUN!  Thanks also to Susan for hosting this fun swap!




I would show you what I sent to Cherie...except I don't think she received her package yet in the mail.  I don't want to spoil her fun!

I got the cutest little bear in a halloween costume..when you squeeze his hand he giggles and says Happy halloween. Of course, the kids love him!
