My first swap {Swapoween} and the anticipation is killing me

So I was talking to my lovely friend Angie (IRL, y'all!) from My So-Called Chaos the other day about how I feel like such a blogger NOOB....even though I've been blogging for over six years. She's a great friend, so of course the conversation was very encouraging and helpful. She really is super nice, y'all--if you're not reading her blog, you should be!

Anyway, she asked if I wanted to be a part of her swap. I was giddy. I have seen blog swaps and have always secretly wished to participate, but...I don't know...I guess I just didn't think I "belonged"...maybe. I don't really know how to explain it. I wasn't sure I was welcome - even though everyone is super nice. I still feel like a little bit of an outsider from the blogger "in" crowd.

But Angie encouraged me to sign up, so I did! I am so excited! We find out who our partners are this Saturday and then I have to get busy! I am so glad that Angie and Beth are hosting a Halloween swap (cleverly named "Swapoween") - I have always loved Halloween. It was a big deal at our house. We made our own costumes (more like, we "helped" my mom make them) every year and had a lot of holiday traditions that I still keep with my own little family now! So so so excited! (BTW, we finally decided on a family theme for Halloween this year. I'll post pictures next month!)
