i did a “favorite things” gift exchange with one of my favorite twitter friends…alison from sunshine and lavender. we both happened to be on twitter one day when two other people were discussing a blogger exchange so we decided to do one ourselves! i had never done one before but had a blast picking out things for her. although i kinda wanted to keep everything for myself (it was my fave things after all)…lol! these are the goodies i received from her:

a yummy candle-i am going to put it in my bathroom so i can light it when i am getting ready! my husband and i are always trying to make our bathroom more spa-like.

i haven’t tried this yet with eep, but i did see a lady buying out ALL of these when they were on sale at babies r us. he HATES any green veggies so i think i may be able to get him to eat spinach since this one is mixed with mango and pear!

this peppermint soap totally adds to the spa experience at home. i am going to have to hide it from my husband.

and you know i LOVE nail polish! alison got me “peach daiquiri” by essie which i didn’t have so i am excited to wear it! i haven’t tried the gloss yet!

i LOVE these! i almost bought them for myself so they were a perfect choice for me! the older i get, the more i need blank cards for surprise occasions! or just to send a little hello or thank you. you can never have enough stationary in my eyes. but i LOVE mail…it’s like xmas every day! =)

frames…you can never have enough. a new pic of eep will surely make it’s way into this frame!

i also happen to be a fan of this mascara! i used to use it before the one i am using now.

gum is always good to have in your purse!

and trashy magazines are the best! whenever we go to palm springs, i LOAD up on trashy mags to read while at the spa!

she also got me echinacea and lavender seeds which i gave to my husband to plant immediately so i didn’t get a pic of those. be sure and stop by sunshine and lavender to see what i got her! have you ever done a favorite things exchange? i’d love to see….post a link in the comments! =)

    My little one doesn’t eat anything green either but he LOVES those Happy Baby pouches. The other way we sneak green in is through smoothies. Throw a couple of cups of spinach in and he’ll never know 🙂 I think we tried smoothies around 10 months. Glad you liked everything, I had such a blast doing this!

    So nice! great idea!! I LOVE Dr. Bronner’s soap liquid or bar, specially the eucalyptus version! Also the baby food is soooo good I have to admit i lick my fingers when I share the mess with my baby : )
