No, that's fine babykaoss! I just meant that I was running behind in terms of my usual anal early-running self.

babykaoss, I am so glad you like it; I had lots of fun putting it together - and thanks for introducing us to yankee candles (now my kids have to smell them every time we go to Bed Bath & Beyond, which we have been doing a bit of lately, since we just moved )

Amy, am looking forward!

my daughter likes them too, she helped me open the package and it was so cute watching her wrinkle her little 2 year old nose up and sniff them and say "Mmmmm!" She actually got mad a threw a tantrum when i took it away from her.

fancy? they are, i know, and pricey, but no other candles smell so wonderful, they just smell SO good. i seriously have the urge to eat them.....or just take a tiny lick to see what they taste like, although in my head i realize they won't taste good, hello crazy, they're CANDLES!

edited to add, my package went out tonight to my partner, hope you like it!

Yankee and Burts Bees are both "fancy" - very classy gift.

I got my gift from Sara aka Mamaharsh!!

A few treats for the babe, some yummy smelling Sweet Violet Lotion, some LaRee's Candles Tiny Tush Cream and an adorable lime colored fleece AIO diaper!!

For moi, LaRee's Candles Whipped Shea Body Butter in Vanilla Fields scent, which I can use because my belly is starting to get itchy. and a handmade nursing necklace which is just beautiful. The stone is a warm amber-ish color. I can't wait to use it. Thank you so much!!

My gift is going out in the next couple days. I still have some items I'd like to acquire for my partner. It will be worth the wait, I promise!!

Oooh, how exciting that some mamas are getting their packages! It's so much fun to see who gets what.

MrsMoe, finally got to the post office today, so your package is on the way! (I tried the other day, but they had just closed ) I had to fill out a customs form so the contents are listed on the outside! LOL, just don't look at that part!

Kristina,

Glad you got it so fast! I LOVE the shea butter myself. I'm already on my second jar LOL. And I'm glad you like the stone I chose for the nursing necklace. I had a hard time choosing.

I had fun pulling it all together.

: I got my package on Monday from plagio.... :
I guess she really took the hint when I capitalize belly casting supplies on my ISO wish list
I was so excited. It was so unexpected. I had just driven myself and ds back from the airport and was sore and hungry and tired. And when I got home there were several packages waiting (diapers from ebay among them!!!). I didn't recognize the return address on her box as being one of me ebay sellers so I didn't know what to think when I opened it. I turned on my pg relaxation CD that I copied for my recipient and then opened it. The first thing that hit me was the smell... yay! I got my dried lavender and some more RRL (cringe... I can hardly stomach my stash right now... and now I guess I will HAVE to drink more :LOL guess the universe is telling me something) and then like 5 rolls of casting strips and unpetroleum jelly and kids CDs that we didn't have yet and the sweetest letter.
It made me feel so happy and loved.
Thanks AMY for planning this and JULIA for the thoughtfulness you put into your box!!!!
