Special Thank You to My Secret Santa

Hello Friends!

This Christmas, I joined a fantastic group of bloggers in a Secret Santa gift exchange.  Oh what fun it was to peek in and get to know a new blogger and try to figure out what she may like. 

I received my care package while my Dad was in the hospital and my spirits were pretty low.  Although my Secret Santa has remained anonymous, I want her to know just how much my mood was lifted by her generosity and thoughtfulness.  

Without further delay…as I am already quite tardy…allow me to show you the plethora of goodies I received.  

Goody List  
M&M: To know me is to know few things make me happier than chocolate.
Floral Post-it: These will remind me that warm weather WILL return.
ID Protector Stamp: I didn’t even know there was such a thing.  BRILLIANT!
Bumpits: I just cut all my hair off, but Jordan has been trying to get Ashlee to try these.
Disney Snowglobe: Isn’t this adorable?  Who doesn’t love M-I-C-K-E-Y??
Green Cup with Straw: This is perfect to hold cold drinks for my daily commute.
Christmas Socks: I love these!  I will wear them every year.
Nail Polish and Pedicure Set: See!  I’m prepared for the warm weather and SANDALS!
Hazelnut Scented Candle: Hazelnut is my favorite flavor of coffee and scents.  
1001 Recipes Cookbook:  I love to cook and can’t wait to try some of these wonderful recipes like Souper-Sausage Cornbread made with cream of celery soup.  YUM!

She even included a special gift for Bosco: a red and white striped rope that reminds me of a candy cane.  He loves it!

I’m not sure whether my Secret Santa is a long time friend or new, but she definitely put time and thought into her shopping as everything is perfect.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Thank you also to Susanne for hosting this fun and festive gift exchange.
