Mother's Day Blogger Exchange

I seriously love this blogging community. While I'm sitting over here with pregnancy brain/mom-of-a-toddler brain, they come up with all kinds of fun exchanges and crafty ideas, and I get to just jump on the bandwagon and join in on the fun without actually organizing and planning stuff. So a huge thanks to three of my fave bloggers: Courtney, Jenny, and Liz for putting together a Mother's Day Exchange where I got to know two sweet new-to-me bloggers, and got a totally spoiled in the process.

I was paired with Emily, mom to adorable Avery Mae, and blogger over at Raising Avery Mae. I found out she lives about thirty minutes from where I grew up (and in the same town where about half my family still lives), and is a fellow vegetarian and margarita lover. Such a small world, and I never would've met her if it weren't for this exchange! Be sure to hop on over, check out her fun family adventures, and see what I got her for Mother's Day.

The second blogger I met through this exchange was Katie, the super generous and talented owner of: Creative House Shop and blogger over at Creative House Blog. Katie really pampered and spoiled the heck out of me for Mother's Day. Not only did I get the most adorable Mama Bear mug and decal from her shop (so cute, and so fitting!), I also got some pretty notepads which are perfect since I love making lists and journaling. But, she didn't stop there - I also got a gift card to Barnes & Noble (my happy place) and Starbucks (which I like to enjoy while at my happy place). See? Completely spoiled! I love it all so much. Thanks Katie! 

See what all the other mamas got here. And again, a big thanks to Courtney, Jenny, and Liz!
