Secret Santa Gifts!

 I participated in two Christmas blog swaps this year. 
The first one was a Secret Santa sponsored by Wife of a Sailor
My gift came a few days after Christmas (which is why Im blogging about it now). 
I was so excited to open it, but that was nothing 
compared to my excitement AFTER opening it! 

My Secret Santa was Sam from Life's a Dance
If I didnt know any better, I would swear she a) already knew me, 
b) called my husband for ideas or c) is my long lost BFF. 
That's how well she did! 
When I saw everything I started jumping up and down and screeching
while trying to tell J what all was in the box.

So here's what I got: (AKA, the perfect presents for me!)
A super cute card with a 10$ gift certificate for a Kindle book, PUMPKIN SPICE coffee,
Carmel coffee, caramel macchiato creamer, a reusable travel coffee mug & 2 scrapbook paper kits! 

Not the best picture, I know, but YUM! International Delight is my favorite creamer brand!!!

When I saw this I swear I broke out into chills and
a tear came to my eye. 

I cant wait to try this!!!

She really spoiled me. 
Sam, thank you, thank you, thank you! You did a GREAT job!
So great in fact, that my husband was a little jealous.
He always does a fabulous job at gift giving,
but he did not get me pumpkin spice coffee!

The second swap was an ornament swap hosted by
The Mrs. at Trying our Best.
My gift was from Sespi at And You Never Did Think.
I received a snowman ornament and some yummy cookies
in the cutest Christmas tin.
No pictures because the ornament broke in transit. =(
But I could tell that it was a super cute snowman.
Thank you Sespi!

These were really fun to participate in so I will probably play again
next year. I hope everyone's holiday's were lovely!
Happy 2011!

Mmm, excellent gifts!!! I have some pumpkin spice coffee at home here as well - and I have loved getting pumpkin syrup added to my coffee at Starbucks & Dunkin Donuts during the holiday season - very festive flavoring. Happy New Year! Hope you both had a lovely Christmas too!

I'm so glad that you liked everything, I wish it would have gotten to you before Christmas though! I hope the coffee is good, I'm not a big coffee drinker, so I kind of just guessed :)
