Blogger Gift Exchange

Happy Holidays!!!

So far, Santa has been very good to me. I happened to get a few friendly gifts in the mail over the past few days. Run With Jill sponsored a blogger gift exchange this year and I got my secret Santa blogger gift in the mail yesterday. It's quite possible it arrived earlier but I forgot to check my mail for a few days.... I was so excited, I forgot to take pictures of the super cute wrapping before I tore into the presents. Sometimes, I am like a little kid and I simply can't wait. I did, however, capture some pics of the aftermath. See below. 

Please excuse my dying poinsettia...

Yay, honey bee stingers, stationary, post its, lara bars, cliff bars, Gu and a fruit bar!
So, my secret Santa is pretty awesome. Everything was so neatly wrapped in cute holiday colors, I wish I had slowed down for 2 seconds to snap a picture (impulsiveness at its finest). There are so many reasons why this was the perfect secret Santa gift. #1) I love stationary, especially the cute "Let it snow" note cards. #2) I have been in dire need of a note pad for my refrigerator. #3) I can not wait to use the post it notes. #4) Lara bars (especially Apple Pie) and cliff bars are my absolute favorites and only runners give other runners these things (like the Gu). And last but not least #5) I have been dying to try the honey bee stingers energy snack, I have heard so much about them! To Kyria, thank you so much for the best secret Santa gift ever! Your gift was so thoughtful and very much appreciated, it really got me into the holiday spirit. 

My secret Santa inspired me to finish up my gift and finally get it in the mail. I was trying really hard not to be a slacker about this, because I am notorious for waiting until the last minute for everything. I finally got my gift packaged and put in the mail. I hope my blogger likes her gift as much as I liked mine! Thanks to Jill for sponsoring such a fun event! 

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays so far. I know Santa is starting to tug on my heart strings a little bit. It may be time to rustle up a copy of Love Actually and make some hot chocolate because Christmas is almost here!
