Happy Valentines Day!

I wanted to send out a Happy Valentines Day wish to everyone today.  Valentines day is not too much more than just the typical day here.  My husband was super romantic while we were dating on his own.  Meaning he didn't always do super romantic things on Valentines day, but would randomly show up with gifts or surprises on other days.  But not so much now.  He did remember to get me a beautiful card and even signed it from him and Jayden, even had Jayden sign it.  So sweet! 

Gift Guide

But since I knew that I would likely not get the gifts I went ahead and signed up for the Valentines Day Swap at The Mommy Files!  I was paired up with Chris @ Guys Like Saving Too!  It was a bit harder having a guy instead of a girl to shop for, mostly because I already had some great ideas for a girl.  But lucky he gave me some hints as to what he likes and hopefully He does like what I got for him. 

I recieved my package from Chris just the other day.  And it was full of fun goodies:

There was a pretty soap dish and soap, M & M's, Resses Peanut butter heart, trail mix. Godiva milk chocolate with caramel, the cute bag has hershey kisses with carmel in the middle, and a nice note.
It is such a fun surprise to get something in the mail and not know what is in it.  Now I just have to keep Jayden away.  He had discovered the kisses and wants them all the time.

I want to say Thank you so much to my swap partner Chris, take a moment to check out his blog.  And also thank you to Shannon at the mommy files for hosting.  If you think this looks fun and you missed out don't worry Shannon is planning on hosting an Easter basket swap too!


  1. Wow! That is one nice gift! How cool that you were able to get in on the swap. :)

    I hope your Valentine's Day was great!
    Oh, and I love that your little one signed the card! :)

  2. I would imagine a guy would be harder, esp. for this swap but I'm glad it was a lot of fun and you got some lovely items!!

    Any chance (if you haven't yet) you could check out this post and enter the giveaway? It would mean a TON for my family (full details there):
