The Blogger Christmas Cheer Exchange

Through blogging I’ve “met” some pretty fun people. Two of those ladies are Olya of The Siberian American and Mattie of Northwest Native! When these ladies shared the details of their Blogger Christmas Cheer Exchange on their blogs I was all about participating.

Similar to their Valentine’s Day swap, the exchanging was anonymous and conducted through elfster. A few days after I sent some goodies to Nikki in Texas I received a package in the mail from a nameless Elf! (Turns out it was from Jess of To Sparkle Punch!) I’m so glad I participated because I got exactly what I’d wished for!

A week or so after the package came (and Mattie revealed to me who my elf was), I got a Christmas note in the mail from Jess! Since she’d sent the goodies via Amazon she wanted to get in contact somehow to wish me a Merry Christmas! So sweet!

Thank you so much for the Christmas gifts, Jess! And thanks for hosting, Olya & Mattie!

    You just commented this on Jess’s post and I commented it on Ashley’s but: IT IS THE YEAR OF BOOKS. I think I’m up to six posts read, mine included, and all of them got books! Hahaha. So glad you got that cookbook!

    Love the gifts you got (and I’m cracking up at the book theme this year!). I love Pioneer Woman’s recipes! I bet that cookbook is great.

      I was making one of her recipes this fall and a friend was in the kitchen with me and told me about this cookbook. He said it had recipes for tradition holidays and things like Father’s Day or “the big game.” I’m so excited to try some out!

      I seriously do!!! I’ve had to keep my head down and walk past the cookbook aisle really fast when I’ve been out Christmas shopping, haha! I told my husband right away when I opened the package because he knew I’d wanted it and I didn’t want him to go out and get it for me since you did! lol! The lotion also smells WONDERFUL! You never know when you go to pick it out but it’s great!
