Mailbox Surprise Swap!

One day not too long ago I was sitting on my couch perusing my Facebook feed when I saw a post about a mailbox surprise swap.  I thought to myself, "I like mail.  I like surprises.  And I most certainly like swaps!"  So, it should be no surprise to anyone who reads this blog that I signed up!  In a nutshell, mailbox surprise swap is a group of bloggers who get paired up each month and send each other a little something in the mail.  It's a great chance to get to know another blogger, and of course, get some fun snail mail!

This month I got paired up with Jessica who blogs at JEBBICA'S WORLD.  Jessica's blog has some great health and fitness tips!  I also really enjoyed reading about her "back story" and how she came to be where and who she is today.

So...this month's swap theme was travel.  I may have completely blanked and ignored the travel theme (ok, yeah I did).  Jessica, however, was all over it!  Check out the great stuff she sent me!



Jessica sent me some awesome K cups and a giant coffe mug, knowing I collect mugs and am a fellow lover of the Keurig.  There also was a Starbucks gift card which I so appreciate and will be using asap!  I also received a list of awesome road trip apps and some Doritoes to snack on for my trip to Maine this week!  Perfect!  Then there's the scarf...my absolute favorite part of the package!   Jessica made it for me!  How thoughtful and special is that?!  It's so pretty....I love the colors and I just love scarves in general.  Thank you so much Jessica!

I am so happy I found this swap and am already looking forward to next month!

  2. Kimberly,

    So glad you liked it! I hope I was able to get some things you liked. I meant to mention the car charger was kind of an afterthought after I put everything together...I work at Apartment Dynamics and we give those out at things, but I thought it could also work well for travel in case your phone dies on the way! Have a great trip to Maine!
