Travel Swap shout-out

Look what I got in the mail yesterday besides bills! Laurie was my partner for Kelly's travel swap and does this girl know me or what? She sent me several handmade Pride & Prejudice luggage tags, an hilarious "Don't Eat Darcy" game that I will totally be playing, candy, slippers, a Sudoko book, beaded bookmark, sleep mask, and a darling shell necklace.

Phew. Don't you wish you were me? Now I just need a trip to use all these lovelies on.

I feel so lucky to have gotten her as a swap partner. Thanks, Laurie! I love it all. Be sure to visit her other blog, Tip Junkie for some great tips, games, crafts, and advice.

SUCH fun! I did Kelly's first swap but didn't have a great experience. My partner was just fine but I am unable to just be mediocre with anything. I think I ended dumping $100 into that blasted package for her....

Tee hee! Just looking at that picture, I knew Laurie was your partner, cause I got 'Don't Eat Darcy' for Valentine's day! Isn't she great!?

It looks like someone's been cleaning out the junk drawer.

Laurie, take no offense at my rude brother's inability to be happy for anyone else's good fortunes.

He's totally kidding anyway. He and I have this thing...please know that I love you!

I KNEW I should have participated in that exchange!! That looks like so much fun! And the whole P&P theme shows her true devotion for you and Mr. Darcy!!!

What a fun idea. I have never heard of travel swap or exchange. You will have to fill me in on the fun details of the game. Also I was laughing about a game called "Don't Eat Darcy". Where would you even get a game like that? Well Stie you must have been a very good girl this past year to receive a package like that in the mail. Fun blog!!

That "Travel Swap" package is truly a thing of beauty! Laurie is a thoughtful gift giver, and you can tell she took the time to really get to know you, and get you things you would adore...like P&P luggage tags and a "Don't eat Darcy" game...Brilliant!

Man, she is super creative...I happen to know because, I lurked all over both of her blogs.

Do you Metro-Mommies ever tire of being perfect!? Don't spread your poison to my wife...

Just kidding.

Missla will be a Mommy full time next week- she's quitting her day job.

How bout a trip to LA? We could see Wicked, shop, eat, go to the beach. Come on, you know you want to. I know someone with a guest bedroom (that's actually vacant but hurry fast, I'm sure my Josh is just waiting to fill it up with more relatives or foreigners).
Fun package too. Got mine on Sat. & I loved it too.
