the swap

(before i talk swapping: THANK YOU to all who commented on my breastfeeding post. i loved reading every single one. i love the support you give and how we can happily unite as breastfeeding and formula feeding mamas. a bunch of you really made me laugh. almost so much that i peed myself. but, peeing yourself after giving birth is a post for another day.)

a couple weeks back i planned a little headband swap. remember that? i bet you guys thought i was going to forget to blog about it. have no fear, the post is here. i got paired with my girl, audrey. i am so happy i did! she is so sweet and funny, and even though we read each other's blogs before, i feel like our friendship has grown since. don't you agree, audrey? ;) she has a little baby boy named george whose cheeks i want to squeeze. go on and peruse her blog, you will lalalove it. i promise.

shopping for audrey was super fun! she likes all things funky, sorta like me. we were clearly meant to be partners. after much hemming and hawing i had narrowed it down to two headbands, and when i just couldn't decide… i got both! i did go a couple dollar bills over budget but i figured since i made the rules so i can break 'em, too. holla.

i got audrey a fabulous feather headband from lala's closet. why, look right over thur ---> they are a lovely sponsor of mine and offering 10% off of all your feathered needs! and i got her sweet little bow headband from reverberate. be sure to check them out, too!

audrey sent a beautiful bedazzled flower headband that i may be found wearing, in a little town in upstate new york, every day. how do you know me so well, girlfriend?

this is me. imagining us together. hanging out, ever so stylishly. i sent audrey an email of that strange picture of myself pointing at my head when i got the headband. she may have been creeped out, i'm not really sure though. audrey?

i am so happy this little swap happened and i hope you all enjoyed making new friends and rocking new headbands just as much as i did!

and since we are talking headbands, i must show you the headband that lisa from lala's closet sent me, too. ahem. are you dying? lace, peachy color, feathers and is that a pearl i see? oh yes, it is. i love it, lisa! thanks so much!

  11. You're so welcome! I truly enjoyed the honesty. It was refreshing : ) You made ME laugh when you said you wished someone would've slapped you across the face and handed you some Target formula. Sooo funny!

    Lots of love!
