Summer Birthday Exchange 2016 {Brielana's Surprise}

When Liz told me about the Summer Birthday Exchange I knew Brielana and I had to be involved!

We got to shop for Laureen and Tyson and though I won't tell you what we got him, I will say I had a blast wrapping and putting together his package ;) Here's a sneak peek: 
If you want to see the goods, pop on over to Laureen's blog! I will give a little spoiler and say that he LOVED it, because I received the sweetest Facebook comment thanking us for everything :) And that pretty much made my day.

Our giftee's were Natasha and Ethan and they got Brielana two of her very favorite things: two Little Golden Books and a Fisher Price Little People Disney set.
If you should know anything about us it is that we are huge bookworms and Little Golden Books are one of my obsessions. We have some from when Brian was little (thanks Lisa for great foresight!) and a vintage Cinderella copy that I prize. Adding these two titles to our collection is beyond special.
When Brielana opened the Little People she prompting said, "Snow White!" And hugged it to her chest, haha. Close enough ;) And then she introduced Jasmine and Aladdin to the rest of the Princesses.

Thank you Natasha and Ethan! You sure did make Brielana happy!
