New Year Blog Party

I stumbled upon this great blog party the other day and I decided to go for it.
I've never done a blog/ gift exchange before and it sounded so fun!


so I sent in my email & just like that I'm paired with Brooke...who has this GREAT vintage etsy shop, Clementine & Nellie!!
Hello! I LOVE that!

Anyway, Brooke & I exchanged gifts from our shops
& now I get to introduce her to you!
First of all, I believe I may be hooked on this kind of thing.
It was SO fun getting a little surprise package!

And is was SOOOOOO fun opening up these sweet vintage goodies :)

Isn't that hand towel the cutest? And the yellow apron is really precious...
(My camera is broken so I had to use photobooth on my mac book to get the shot of me in the apron. So I apologize for the quality, but dang it's cute, huh!?)

I just think it was so thoughtful of her to send baking gear :)
Also, Brooke used to be a baker herself AND has a gluten free son.
Nice job with the match up!!!

Anyway, Brooke came up with a few get-to-know-you questions that we exchanged.
I would love for you all to get to know her too.
So here are a few of my fave questions:

favorite time of day and why: I gotta say, I love the feeling after my kids are in bed, the kitchen is clean, and it's time to grab a glass of wine and sit in the bed with my honey and snuggle up, watch TV, work on the blog... when my mommy responsibilities are done and I can just be myself...
you're kid and husband free for four hours - what do you do? Head to Kennesaw Mountain for a short hike, then grab a coffee, and hit the thrift store or Classy Flea (an indoor "permanent" flea market near my house - eeep!).
favorite season: Fall - hands down.
you have $150 to go shopping with - what do you buy? That's tough. I always think I will go thrifting with it... then I think about my business and buying new inventory for it... then I think I might like an Ipod, or an Iphone, or I don't know. I'd probably go thrifting.
if you could live anywhere else in the US, where would it be and why? I would love to live in the Pacific Northwest... the mountains and the ocean within such a short distance of each other... what could be better?

Isn't she great?!
Head over and check out her blog & shop.
