Holy Secret Santa!


My secret santa package arrived today πŸ˜€ Take a good look at that picture up there and then take a guess at who my secret santa was…..yep, it’s Amanda at The Zen Leaf!!! I was so excited. It’s always exciting to get someone that you don’t know, but it’s even more exciting I think when you get someone you DO know :p

This was such an amazing gift! It was filled with personalized messages and handwritten notes and letters which kept a smile on my face while I sifted through my package πŸ™‚ She wrote me the sweetest letter, got me a jar of nutella (which I guarantee won’t be around for long), not one, but TWO books (Peeps and Evermore!!), a mix CD that I’m super excited about, and….and…and…..a freaking twin of BABY DEATH!!!! Do you see that??? If you haven’t seen Amanda and Jason’s Death and Baby Death Book Hour videos yet, you’re really missing out on something awesome. I told Amanda in an email that my legitimate reaction to finding my own little Baby Death in a tin was a huge Disney Princess gasp of air, instantaneous goosebumps, and then I hugged the shit out of him….and I only let go of him to take the picture and type this post……*resumes hugging*
