Sheaffer and I have been having THE BEST time this week sharing prizes, fun and silly videos with you!!  We look forward to this week all year long and hope you do too!!

Okay, I’ve been waiting all week for today’s prize because IT’S MY FAVORITE!!!  Before we get to that (plus, I’m sharing details from my annual recipe exchange AND I’m talking about Third Love too!), let’s recap this week so far…

So, what about today’s giveaway?  Ready?  It’s good!!  We are giving away…

an Apple watch for yourself AND a friend!!!!

Yessssssssssssssssssssssssss!

You and someone you love (maybe your hubby or boyfriend?!) will each receive an Apple Watch Series 1 this Christmas from us!!

I have been obsessed with the Apple Watch for two years now.  I am so dependent on that thing, it’s ridiculous.  I never in a million years thought I’d love it as much as I do…

…if you missed my last Apple Watch post where I talk about why I adore mine so much, you can read it HERE.  It’s one of the best things I’ve ever purchased!

So, head to the bottom of this post to enter the Rafflecopter for your chance to win one for yourself and someone you love!

On Tuesday night, I hosted my 8th Annual Recipe Exchange!!

This is my very favorite party of the year and NEVER disappoints!  We always change up the theme each year.  In the past, we’ve exchanged recipes for: cookies/bars, appetizers, side dishes, casseroles, breakfast recipes and have repeated a few times.  This year though, I decided to make it an “anything goes” edition and it was such a hit!!

Aren’t my invites so cute?!  I wanted them extra festive this year, and they were!!  I had no idea which types of recipes my friends would bring considering they could bring anything, and we had the BEST variety!  We had appetizers, dips, a soup, a side dish, a breakfast recipe, dessert and even a cocktail.  Talk about a fun mix!  The food was AMAZING!  Here are some pics from our fun night…

Welcome to our party!

This is where everyone voted for the most festive pajamas and favorite recipe.

 

I print out all of the recipes, so that everyone leaves with them.

Since we were wearing pajamas, this year’s party favor was slippers!

 

 

 

Everyone arrived and started getting to work!

 

 

There was trash talk right from the start 😉 .

Weren’t these cute and festive?!

Our two redheads were laughing that they wore the same thing 😉 .

Karla.  That’s all I can say.  Karla is ALWAYS the life of the party!

 

 

At the end of the night, we voted this right here the WINNING recipe!!

 

Oh my goodness!  I just love my friends SO MUCH!!

 

I love my girlfriends so much.  This was such a wonderful night…but also sad too.  This was our last “Manda wasn’t here” event of the year.  She is just so missed.  We talked a lot about her and her family as we ate.  Manda loved things like this, and we miss her so much.  Love on your girlfriends…life is just so short and you don’t know what tomorrow might bring.

Okay, my recipe of the night was this…

Candied Jalapeno Bacon Pimento Cheese Dip

…my Candied Jalapeno Bacon Pimento Cheese Dip.

This recipe is so good if I do say so myself!!!  I made it for the first time on Thanksgiving night with my in-laws, and we loved it so much that I made it again for the recipe exchange because #givemeallthedip.  You can see the recipe for it HERE.

So, if you want to host a recipe exchange, this is how I do it:

1: Everyone emails me their recipe in advance and I compile I little booklet of all of them.

2: Everyone brings their prepared dish the night of the party.

3: We eat, eat, eat and then vote on our favorite (the winner gets a prize!).

4: Everyone leaves with a party favor and a copy of the recipe booklet.

5: I always provide drinks and dessert to round things out.

I also like to do something a little extra at these parties as well.  In years past, we’ve always donated to the food pantry or brought things for a child off of the Angel Tree, but this year, we collected toys for Toys for Tots.  A HUGE thanks to my friends for bringing toys to donate…

Giveaway, check.

Recipe exchange, check.

Third Love.  What?  Who?  Let me tell you.

Sheaffer has talked about this brand called Third Love over and over again, so she asked me if I wanted to include it in today’s post too and I jumped at the chance!  I love introducing new things to you guys, so when they were kind enough to send me some goodies, I happily accepted.  This brand is known for their bras, but I was suuuuuuper hesitant to order one off the internet because, hello?  How will I know it fits?  I called Sheaffer and she assured me that if I took this little fit quiz they have, it would fit.  So, I did and…BAM!  It came in the mail and fit perfectly!  I was like seriously impressed.

…it’s cute, right?  And bonus, it fits and is COMFORTABLE!

Take the quiz (I was seriously so skeptical!) and see which style and size is for you.  Easy as that!  I love these lace t-shirt bras and might have to buy me some more!

I also got these goodies in the mail too…

lounge pants and a tee.  Bam.  It’s like they knew I love to wear comfy clothes around my house all the time 🙂 .  Both pieces come in several colors.  They are super, super cozy!  And here are some other pieces from Third Love

Now, one thing to remember, I think I’m pretty spoiled with overnight shipping and fast deliveries…I will say, that was not my experience with  Third Love.  Please do not expect your package to be on your doorstep tomorrow morning 😉 .  Just a heads up if you’re ordering for the holidays, plan for longer shipping.  Sheaffer actually put this on her blog this morning and I thought it was very well put…

So, I think it’s more than obvious that I’m a big fan of ThirdLove products.  I’ve loved their bras for a couple of years now, and now I absolutely love their lounge wear as well! I do want to mention that I’ve heard about some issues with ThirdLove customer service and exchanges. They are currently transitioning warehouses, and have run into some unexpected delays sending out product. ThirdLove is doing their best to take care of all their customers and appreciate everyone’s patience while they work through these growing pains. I always want my readers to be given the best customer service experience possible, so I reached out to my contact to brainstorm ideas.
 
ThirdLove always wants to make sure their customers are happy and well taken care of.  If an issue arises (we don’t expect it to…but if it does), you can reach out 7 days a week from 6am-9pm PST. Feel free to call them at 866-205-6833, text at 415-692-0089 or email hello@thirdlove.com

Whew!  That’s a lot for one post!  Okay friends, don’t forget to enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win not one but TWO Apple Watches!!  The winner will be announced tomorrow on our fifth and final day…where the grand prize is BIG!  Love you ladies!!!

    I love reading about this event every year! I just have one question–I’m curious as to what you do as the host (and the other ladies) with your kids that night?? Do you have Andrew take them out or just have them go upstairs or maybe you even combine with the other ladies? I feel like this is such a fun time spent with your girls, I’m just thinking about the logistics. Thanks fir always sharing!

    • Mix and Match Mama November 30, 2017 at 5:43 am

      Andrew took my kids to dinner and then they hung out upstairs 🙂 .

  • Ashlan November 30, 2017 at 6:54 am

    Your girls night is such an inspiration, definitely doing something like this in the future. *Just curious, were the slippers paid for ahead of time by everyone and then someone picks out something? The slippers were a great idea!

  • Laurie Birt November 30, 2017 at 7:11 am

    All the teachers in my building LOVED Sheaffer’s dip last year! Any chance you’ll be sharing this year’s winner? Maybe a post on the recipe winners of year’s past? Thanks so much. You have a beautiful home, family, group of friends, and giving spirit. Thank you for letting us share your blessings.

  • meghan November 30, 2017 at 9:07 am

    so I probably should have done my research before I bought my little sister the vivofit jr watch but of course I didn’t! I saw that you’ve been recommending them and your kids wear them and my sister has been dying for something like a fitbit. Do these watches need to have wifi to work? and does she need to have a phone for it to work or can she just sync to mine and it work? we live about 2 hours away from eachother so I wasnt sure if that would be a factor also. thanks so much! love reading your blog every morning

    • Mix and Match Mama November 30, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      Nope, no wifi needed and yes, you can put the app on your phone!

  • Doneida Larsen November 30, 2017 at 9:17 am

    Okay…so 2 things.
    1 – Attending your Annual Recipe Exchange is on my Bucket List. LOL

    2- Any chance we can get the recipe for those winning potatoes?

  • Kelly Chen November 30, 2017 at 9:21 am

    I keep debating on the Apple watch!! And I love your annual party…I’m planning one in the next couple months for my friends as well!

  • Anna S November 30, 2017 at 9:47 am

    I woke up this morning really excited to read today’s post because I figured it would be about the recipe exchange party. Ha! I love seeing pictures of your beautiful home at Christmas with all of your girlfriends together. It makes me so happy. 🙂

      Tomorrow’s is open to Canadian residents too.

      • Deb November 30, 2017 at 4:45 pm

        Boo – wish I’d read the teeny tiny T&C before bothering to enter – that should probably be made a little clearer in the main part of the giveaway post – most other giveaways have it clearly stated in the description – entries only available to US residents 🙁

  • Nikki November 30, 2017 at 12:10 pm

    I always love the pics from your recipe exchange!

  • Nicole D November 30, 2017 at 12:18 pm

    Your friend, Karla, seems hilarious! It must be a laugh a minute with her around!

  • Jen November 30, 2017 at 12:59 pm

    I love the idea of Third Love since I have two teen girls. The option to order a bra and wear it before committing to it was great. However you can only use this service one time for one person. I was so bummed and they said that was the way their model works unless I want to have it sent to another address. Not worth it. I understand if had to create different profiles for each female but too bad they lost our business.

  • Michelle Reiter November 30, 2017 at 1:45 pm

    Such a fun night, I’d love to start this with my girlfriends!

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams November 30, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    Where did you get those cute beverage napkins?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 4:55 am

      Amazon 🙂

  • Kay November 30, 2017 at 10:08 pm

    Where did you get that big pretty red bow and Candles?!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 4:55 am

      The bow came from a store in town called Homeology and the candles are from a million different places.

  • Anna-Kate Massengale December 1, 2017 at 12:15 am

    I left like 60 comments and stayed up for two more hours on a school night for this contest hahahahaha

  • Anna-Kate Massengale December 1, 2017 at 12:17 am

    But on the upside I got time to look through yours and @sheaffertoldmeto’s websites! I’ve spent so much time looking through all your posts and everything! Can’t wait for those apple watch results!

  • Kim December 1, 2017 at 12:57 pm

    Shay! Where, oh where, did you get the big red bow above the stove?! 😍 Also, what kind of drinks do you usually serve during the recipe exchange? Does it depend on the theme?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 1, 2017 at 1:35 pm

      It does depend on the theme! And I bought it at a store on our square called Homeology :).

  • Amie December 1, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    Would you ever consider posting all of the recipes? I love reading about this every year and am always looking for new ideas 🙂

    Do you use a certain program to design your invitations??? I’m planning on doing a recipe exchange party in February when it’s really cold outside and everyone has settled down from Christmas!! Thanks for the inspiration!!! =)

    Are the slippers the Minnetonka ones from Nordstrom?? (They look the same, but it’s hard to tell for sure.) I’ve been wanting the Ugg slippers forever, but just can’t swing that much right now.

      Yes!!!

    You should write your next cookbook based upon all the recipe exchanges from years past! What a great Christmas present that would be for family or friends!
