Meet the Sullivans: Mother's Day Exchange

Mother's Day Exchange


A few weeks ago I received an email from Karra, beautiful mommy to Rae and the voice behind Justus&Rae, suggesting a few of us mommies participate in a little gift exchange in honor of Mother's Day. Well, if you know me, you know the only thing better than receiving a gift is getting to buy one for someone else! Needless to say we were IN!

That's Jess and her adorable daughter Sadie!
The limit was set at $20, and we all shopped and shipped our gifts off to be delivered to our person before Mother's Day! We (Owen &I) ad fun shopping for our draw, Jess from Sadie Sky, but I was little intimidated, because what do you buy for a girl who has such impeccable style? I was a little afraid I would send her something she wouldn't like or that if I did come up with what I thought was a great idea that she would already have it. Gah! Luckily I came across a cute gift that I thought would be "COOL" not matter what! You'll have to head over to her blog to see what we sent her!


 

The day after we shipped our gift off I received a cute little package in the mail from my sweet, talented, funny, stylish, great-mama friend Erin of hello erin! I knew I had hit the gift exchange JACKPOT, because Erin always finds the best stuff before I even know anything about it! She's  one hip and amazing mom! Her adorable daughter Lex is a very lucky little lady!


She gifted me this beautiful Alex and Ani bracelet with an "O" charm for Owen! I LOVE it! It's really comfortable to wear and I adore the little "O" charm on it. Owen loves that it makes this little jingling noise when I move my wrist. I have worn it everyday since it arrived!


I love shopping for other people and I love seeing what kinds of this others give as gifts to get new ideas! Make sure you check out what the others mamas in our exchange, Ashley from Words About Waverly and Karra from Justus&Rae!

Oh goodness, your are the sweetest! I don't know about me having impeccable style but I sure do love those ice cube trays! Your bracelet is so pretty! This was such a fun swap...now we need to find another holiday or occasion to justify another one! ;-)
