Holiday Ornament Exchange

When some blogging friends recently announced a holiday ornament exchange I couldn’t sign up fast enough!  I love this time of year and everything about it, and I love picking out gifts for people!  Unless, of course, they’re hard to buy for… then it’s just a pain.  Ahem, Brian.  Hehe.


Anyway, I was paired with Stephanie at Wife Mommy Me, and she sure did spoil me!  She sent me not one, but three ornaments, plus a few other festive goodies as well.  And so much thought was put into each ornament.  Every single one of the them made me smile.


My absolute favorite (and now one of my favorite ornaments on the entire tree) is the buffalo plaid “A” ornament.  A is for our family name, red and black are some of our favorite colors – helloooo, Georgia Bulldogs! – and buffalo plaid?  I’m dying.  Stephanie, this ornament could not have been more perfect.  It really couldn’t have been.


She also gave me a gold cross ornament, which is just beautiful.  My faith is very important to me, and I thought that it was very thoughtful of her to recognize that.  Plus, GOLD!  Anybody who has been reading my blog for any amount of time knows I love gold.  I mean, I did my entire home office in it along with pink, black, and white.  


Finally, a football ornament!  How cute is this?!  We are diehard Georgia fans, and we adore college football, so this was just perfect.  


Along with the ornaments, she also enclosed a packet of hot chocolate (which I already enjoyed at work yesterday morning), and a Vanilla Bean eos Lip Balm. 



My favorite part of the whole package, though, was the sweet note that she sent along with everything.


Stephanie, you are just so thoughtful and I have really enjoyed getting to know you on this blogging journey.  I’m so thankful to have been paired with you and I hope to follow along with you for a long time to come!  <3

  13. That buffalo plaid 'A' is SO cute. I love buffalo plaid and monograms, so I would have been in heaven with this ornament package! :) How sweet that you also got two other ornaments, a lip gloss and hot cocoa!! I participated in an ornament exchange and its been 2 weeks and I haven't heard back from my person nor has she let me know she received the items I sent her! Ahh! I'm kind of bummed!
