Mommy & Me Book Exchange Reveal

If I could hand pick one thing I want to hand down to Connor, it would be my love of reading. We started reading to him when I was pregnant and haven't stopped. As my luck would have it, I'm fairly certain that he too, loves books. 

When Courtney, Jenny and Liz announced a Mommy & Me Book Exchange - where your Secret Santa gifts you two books, one for Momma and one for Baby - I knew Connor and I would be signing up. 
I was Secret Santa to Sara from Running From The Law. I gifted her, Mac and Mim books and really hope they enjoy them. Merry Christmas, Sara! My Santa was our host, Courtney


Courtney gifted "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" to Connor. It was so shocked that he didn't have it already but he didn't so I added it to his book wish list. I was given "The Girl You Left Behind" which as I've mentioned is a BIG favorite of mine. I had just finished it the week before I got my package from Courtney. Thanks to a little Amazon magic of sorts, I was able to keep "The Girl" and Courtney was able to send me a new book "Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir".

 

Thank you ladies for hosting this fun exchange. I can't wait to read Jenny Lawson's book and Connor is LOVING his cookie book. It's a new favorite for sure! 

Don't forget to enter my BOOK BUNDLE {Giveaway}. Included in it is "The Girl You Left Behind".

  3. Believe it or not, we don't have "if you give a mouse a cookie" but I've had it on Mason's wish list for forever! Sounds like Santa Mommy needs to do a little Amazon magic and make that happen this year!
    Courtney did a great job for both of you!

  4. Aria loved her mouse book for Halloween so when I saw that one on the list I knew Aria would enjoy sending it to Connor! She was pretty peeved I wouldn't let her open it ha. I've since added it to her book wish list =) I'm so glad Connor enjoyed it, and that Amazon was able to send off a new book without the bother of sending the first back. A little Christmas magic for sure. That second book looks fantastic so I hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks so much for joining in!!

  7. I read out loud to my bumps too! Pretty sure it does work since both girls enjoy a good story even the 5 month old. Just the cover picture makes me want to read that book haha.
