O my Gosh!!! Look at all of these packages!!!!!! All of the pink ones were for me and the purple ones for Anita. It was just like Christmas, even my little brother Matthew wanted to help unwrap the packages!
Here are our washcloths, mine is on the left and Anita's is on the right.
Here are Anita and I with all of our goodies, we got note pads for the fridge, crystal light drink packets, 2 balls each of Sugar and Cream cotton for clothes for us to make, Anita got sugar free candy and I got Hershey's - a hometown favorite. We also got travel size hand lotion and body wash. We really had a great partner.
Thanks again Criquette!!!!
