Has everyone sent out their packages?

Has anyone received their packages?

I have sent mine out (almost 2 weeks ago) and am waiting with baited breath for my package to come in the mail!

I just got mine out at long last : I kept waiting for a Cotton Babies shipping label that's supposedly coming in the mail (they sent me TWO orders instead of one! teases!) to do one trip to the post office, but I finally bit the bullet and went today anyway. I sure hope I can just drop off the Cotton Babies package and not wait in the looong line,

So, swapee, your gift is coming this week!!

And I fully deserve to have not received mine yet (excited, though!)

I was waiting on one last thing to come, so mine is going out tomorrow.

Haven't gotten anything yet, but I am sure it will come soon. I am sending mine priority, so my mama should have it by Friday or Saturday at the lastest.

MaxiMom- I am glad you got yours! I was starting to worry! I forget what I put in there, actually, as I mailed it a couple of weeks ago. I made a second pair of those socks for my baby as they were so cute. Enjoy.

Mine is going out today!! I haven't been allowed to drive and DH has been so super busy with work so we finally picked up the last couple things yesterday. I am going to send it priority so it should get there within a week. Sorry it has taken so long to send out:

Barbara:  an always learning SAHM of Ilana (11) and Aiden (8) living in Belgium with my amazing husband.

I sent my package out on the 9th, and I just looked up the tracking # and it appears it's still in my city at the post office. I'm really hoping that's an error.

I recieved my package from krismarie last week, I posted a pic on my blog (link below, the word "knitter") of what was in it, but I can list it here is everyone wants to see:

Organic cotton breastpads
New Mama Herbal Bath (which caused my dh some distress as he was concerned about witch hazel getting into my breast milk...which is pretty funny since this tea is for sitting in!! He's so cute when he when he worries: )
A very delicious bar of dark chocolate with blueberries
Fairybum salve (which works fantastic, dd had a sore bum that was just not getting better, 2 applications and she is looking great!)
Thank You cards
A Superman activity book for my dss and stickers for my dd (Grace was so excited over the stickers, Cam felt very special to have been included in the care package, thank you very much!)

Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, MaxiMom!

You're so welcome MonkeyPrincess! Those lap t's are sure hard to find, thank goodness for 2nd hand stores. I picked some up for us, too.

Glad you liked your package. This swappy stuff is fun!

Thanks St. Margaret!

I just got my package and it is perfect! I got some leg warmers (they are sooooo cute) and some postpartum bath herbs that I had on my wish list but had not yet found the $ to get...

I am so excited! I LOVE getting packages! Mine also had tissue paper and a cute note with it, which makes me wish that I had packaged mine better

Also, my package went out today - DH couldn't make it to the PO yesterday. It should arrive by Friday!

I'm giddy!

It is PERFECT! I swear, you must have known that I needed those bath herbs! I was a bit worried about the hemorrhoids since they have been so much more annoying with this pg, and also I love that it helps healing because I have a UTI right now and even going 5 days without DTD is hard for DH and I - anything to help speed recovery from childbirth is a godsend (TMI sorry, but it is true)!

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you !
