Running from the Law: Fall Blog Swap

Fall Blog Swap

Earlier this year we participated in a fun little blog swap gift box exchange with some other awesome mommy bloggers with babies/toddlers.  We had so much fun getting awesome box filled with Springtime goodies that we were thrilled to participate in this Fall swap.  We were matched up with swap hostess and mommy-blogger extraordinaire Jessica of Secrets of a Stay At Home Mom.  We sent her two adorable kiddos, Cameron and Emerson (who are both right around the same ages as my kids) a really fun back-to-school box filled with some fun school supplies so they could "play" school. Head over to Jessica's blog to see what we sent them.

Meanwhile, we received the coolest books from Bekah, who blogs over at I Prefer My Puns Intended, and has the most adorable little boy named Bennett and is expecting.  Bekah picked out perfect books for us!  Mac received a book shaped like a fire truck with real wheels, filled with real photos of fire trucks.  He's obsessed with this book and has even insisted on sleeping with it for the past week. That's how you know he really loves it.  Mim received the cutest little finger-puppet ladybug book that she thinks is hilarious.  She has to kiss the ladybug on every single page and then laughs hysterically.  I don't know why it's funny to her, but it's REALLY funny to watch.  
Bekah also sent me this awesome devotional for women runners.  It's filled with stories, poems, prayers and thoughts about running, motherhood, body image, faith, etc.  I've really enjoyed reading the stories as I slowly ease my way back into running. 
Thank you so much Bekah!  We all love the books!
