A Surprise Package Delivery!

When we were getting ready to leave our house this evening, I noticed there was a package sitting by our door. We were not aware of anyone stopping to deliver a package. (That's one complaint I have about delivery people, they don't usually ring the doorbell or knock here. Many times they leave the package on our doorstep and leave.)

I was pleased to see that the mystery package was addressed to me. We opened it up right away (I say we because Matt was more excited to see what was in it than I was), and I was surprised at what I saw. I had no idea what it was from. I often get things from companies for review, but I'm aware they are coming and what. And I win a lot of prizes from giveaways that I enter, but that's the same I always know what I win and that it's coming. This I didn't know.

Once I pulled everything out and pulled the papers and things out, I started to see where it came from. I am a member of MomSelect by Maria Bailey and BSM Media. I often take surveys, make blog posts about events and contests for them, and other things. Apparently (I don't specifically remember) I signed up through them to receive a free Mom magazine.

In the package was a Mom magazine and a letter from them as well. The box was full of goodies from their sponsors.  It was a ton of stuff! Really awesome stuff too!  Here are some photos I got of what was in there.

Can you believe that stuff? There is a Puddle Jumper Life jacket (just in time too for summer swimming), Boogie wipes, a stamp, bottle, sippy cup, Gender predictor kit, Wiki sticks, Mam pacifier, cradle cream (for cradle cap...wish I'd had that when my son was a baby), a Bummis cloth diaper and more!! All the papers that are propped up in the last photo have gift certificates with them, like Mabel's Labels, Lisa Leonard designs, and more.

I'll try to blog a little more about the products as I get the chance to go through things more and use the gift certificates.  What a way to make a girl's day. :D Thanks MomSelect and Mom magazine for the wonderful goodies!

Those life jackets are great!! It's what our almost 3 year old swims in. It keeps her afloat perfectly but without tipping her back like most life jackets do. Have fun with your goodies :)
