Christmas in July!

Blogger Gift Exchange 

I'm back from my vacation and and revealing what I received in the Blogger Gift Exchange! The ladies from The Blended Blog thought it would be fun to have a Christmas is July gift exchange and today's the day we all post about what we received from our Secret Santa!

I was so excited to come home from vacation and find my surprise waiting in my mail box!  It came all the way from Saskatchewan, Canada care of the sassy, super momma Abbie!!  I ripped it right open!

 I love everything inside...all from Canadian stores.

Abbie wrote me the sweetest card too!  

These gifts sure did brighten my day,  considering I woke up to the dismal news that my luggage was ransacked in Punta Cana and I am missing hundreds of dollars in clothes!  SO
these lovely gifts sure did put a big smile on my face, after I was all cried out...HA!

Love this cocktail wristlet!!  Perfect for me!!  LOL And will be the perfect thing to bring with me when I go to Toronto to see the girls!!  Woot! Woot!

These cocktail napkins are so funny!! Abbie and I could definitely be drinking buddies for sure!  

This pad and journal are fun too!  Going to use the journal to jot down blog ideas!

Can never have too many socks...and guess what?  A few pairs were stolen out of my suitcase, so I was on the market for new and so happy Abbie chose to include them!!

Can't wait to wear this super cute necklace this week too!

Thank you so much Abbie for all these fun gifts!  I love them and so appreciate the time you took to make them ME!
I was so excited to have my fellow librarian lady Leslie as my pick!  Check out her reveal of what I sent her here!  And don't forget to click to see who had who and who got what!!  And to see the reveal posts from our past exchanges click here!

What a great box of thoughtful gifts from Abbie. Love the love card, too. Lastly, thank you so much for my perfect gifts. Starting the book this week. Perfect pick!! XO

  6. I cannot believe that they stole socks, like really socks?! So crazy, I guess you can say well they liked your clothes well enough to steal, so frustrating and I would have been crying too. Abbie did a fantastic job, so many great things!

  12. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
