Summer Blogger Gift Exchange

I am so excited to show about the "Summer Secret Swap Link Up" hosted by My Beauty Boxes!...and the best part is, I actually got paired up with Jacinta from My Beauty Boxes...Here a picture that you can click on and go visit her blog! :)  We all signed up to participate in getting a summery gift for our secrete partner.

Ok, first of all, when I opened the box of goodies that she got me, it was seriously like Christmas morning.  There were so many school supply goodies I was overwhelmed with looking through everything!

There are some details of what Jacinta gave me!  Inside there was a cute notepad (I like to keep one in my purse incase I need paper), two different note pads, and a packet of different sticky notes (which I am obsessed with!).

She also picked out two different adorable note cards, which every teacher needs in their desk for those quick thank you notes.

Now for my pen obsession...she gave me two different kinds of pens.  Pens are something that I can't have enough of, and I might be one of those people that take their server's pen if it has nice ink...SORRY!

AND, then there were some stickers and adorable magnets for me to use in my classroom!

She also included this fun toy that you can move and wiggle and bend...I will keep this in my desk for those little active ones that need something to play with if they are having trouble sitting still, am I talking about myself?

(yes I am still showing you more gifts she gave me, because I was spoiled!)  Then I found two different kinds of paper clips to keep organized, a key chain, and the biggest eraser I have ever seen!

I loved how Jacinta included a candy dish (which I live off of) for me to keep sweet treats on,  a hot pink and green pail, and cutesy frame!  

And last but not least, she included a business card holder.  This is my absolute favorite gift, and there is no way she knew I wanted one of these!  Layla just made me business cards, and this will be the perfect place to keep them!  :)

Thank you My Beauty Boxes for hosting the Summer Gift Exchange, and thank you even MORE for the thoughtful gifts!  Hop on over and visit her blog! ;)
