I was paired up with Erinn from It's the Journey. Here is the information I got from Erinn:
all kinds of tea
good books (both in real and kindle form)
itunes gift cards for dance class music
I found Erinn a mug with a multitude of bright colors. I also found a cute little sleigh of flavored tea and stuck an iTunes gift card in the sleigh. : ) To top it off I included a couple of peanut butter meltaways from a local candy store... they are SO addictive and I am glad she also enjoyed them!
I was away at my parents' from Christmas day until this morning, but when I got home this afternoon there were TWO packages waiting for me! YAY! I'm so spoiled.
In the first package, I had a card from Erinn, a delicious smelling grapefruit-lemongrass candle, two cute pairs of socks, and purple Essie nail polish.
The candle - it smells sooooooooo good! It's a really unique scent. I love the socks! They are cute and "winter-y" without being strictly Christmas. And I pretty much immediately tried the nail polish. I took advantage of a sleepy puppy and a football-distracted husband and painted my nails for the first time in weeks:
I looooooooooooove purple. And Essie nail polish is such good quality.
Then, I opened the other package, which is from Alaska! So cool. Erinn lives in Washington but is originally from Alaska, so she sent me some Alaskan coffee. I haven't dipped into it yet, but I can smell it through the package, and it smells rich and delicious. Also, I mean, it's from Alaska.
Since I have an Eko-Brew re-usable K-Cup for our Keurig machine, I can also use this coffee in the Keurig. : )
EDIT 1/2/14: WOW, I am an idiot! I finally got around to cleaning up after the holidays, and as I was folding gift bags (reuse, people!) I found ANOTHER gift from Erinn wrapped in tissue paper in the bottom of the bag! She also sent me a dear little glass whale ornament. I love new ornaments for my tree, especially from different places, so thanks Erinn! : )
It was nice communicating with Erinn and talking to someone new, so I was really glad I participated in the Swap. It was also fun to anticipate getting a package in the mail! I am enjoying reading the other posts in the link-up, as well- it seems like everyone got paired up with someone who lives a good distance away, so we all got to experience some different products. Fun fact: I have already been following Erinn's blog for a while due to participating in the My HP Fix link-ups!
Anyway, it was nice to have a little Christmas at the end of Christmas week and extend the holiday a bit. : ) Thanks again Erinn, and have a great week, everyone!
