Winter Gift Exchange

Happy Friday everyone!

I was so thankful for everyone that commented on my blog yesterday. I definitely feel a lot better about my packing anxiety and my stress load, knowing I’m not alone! The blogging world is such an amazing place.

So considering it’s 1:00 a.m. and the Mayan apocalypse has yet to end the world, I am so happy to be blogging from our hotel room in Anaheim! While my eyes are begging for sleep, I received one of the WORLD’S BEST GIFT EXCHANGES from my dear dear friend Allie over A Day in a Joyful Life and I wouldn’t miss acknowledging her for the world!

I was lucky enough to be bloggy bffs with Allie before this swap and my love for her has swelled over since. She bought me the perfect presents, from the Essie color I’ve been pining for, to the washi tape and the AMAZING Cath Kidson stationary. I wish I had snapped a picture of the Kidson stationary, it’s a note that folds into its own envelope! Don’t worry, it’ll make another appearance soon, I’m sure. A bunch of these things are directly from London, she managed to think about me on her vacation!

I cannot rave more about Allie and her adorable pup Casey. Swing by her blog and fall in love, like I have! Thank you for the AMAZING package Allie!!

I was lucky enough to meet a new blogger who I sent a winter gift to, Teresa from The Adventures of Teresa and Luna. Teresa is such a sweetheart, I hope she liked her package!!

Thank you Melissa and Allie for hosting one of my favorite swaps to date!

Sooooooo, Disneyland tomorrow! I admit, my packing anxiety is gone and I’m ready to enjoy myself. Thank you again for sharing your own experiences yesterday, it really does make me feel a little less crazy!

What do you have planned this weekend?

A little weekend tip: My newest favorite Christmas album? Cee-Lo’s Magic Moment. It’s the adequate amount of amazing vocals, Cee-Lo weirdness and Christmas all in one! Cee-Lo is one of the most underrated artists in music and I LOVE his stuff!

I hope you have an amazing day & weekend!
