You are so welcome. I really enjoyed shopping for you.

I noticed you really liked Old Navy so I went to my store and I was looking for a light blue zip up athletic jacket. They only had a really bright blue one but I saw that teal and fell in love with it. I hope you like that color.

Then I found the pj bottoms that are so warm and had your favorite colors. The socks were right nearby. So Old Navy covered 3 of your gifts. It was fun.

I those Essie nail polishes for the holidays.

I use that Burts Bees as it is a lip balm but tinted a rose pink color. I really like it. Hope you do too.

I loved all the gifts I got you so I figured you might too. Glad you did.

I hope you have the best holiday ever! Merry Christmas!

I really did love EVERY single thing! The jacket is the perfect color of blue, and you are right, the PJs had all of my favorite colors, and very cozy. The Essie nail polishes will be fun, and I always have lip balm in my purse, but I like that this one is super smooth and has a little tint to it! The extra goodies (chocolates and hot chocolate) will definitely not last until Christmas...I couldn't resist, and already had one of the Peppermint Bark pieces!

You could not have done a better job of shopping! And you are making me look bad, because I am not sending my package out until this weekend! LOL I couldn't believe the package had already arrived! You are the BEST! Hope you have just as much fun opening your package as I did mine! Merry Christmas!

It was pretty obvious what that present was I was going to put them inside a box but then they didn't fit in my box.I had one picked out with a lid but then I saw this set and thought you might like it,I like that it has that thing on the bottom to let you know when its hot enough.
hope you like what else I got you.
P.S. let me know how you like the pans,I may get a set for myself

I came home to the best box (and the biggest) in the universe! I thought the mail guy must have made a mistake and then i saw it was for me! Edie gave me the best possible surprise. I have always wanted to be her buddy because she is the kindest, caring, funny and momma of pupparoos that I never met.
She more than outdid herself this year for me. For my family for making me so thankful. The thought process for this swap was so special. From softness to scents to letters to my pupparoos, to bears, to shell shaped chocolates i just cant tell you about it all because I will cry again. Even the pups got their own boxes! Thank you so so much. I will attach photos.

Just forgive me if i got these tags right, I loved every single one of them but can't remember which was which.

Xsmall was three glorious shades of nail polish
Small was a totally adorable Bear Christmas runner
Medium - Cranberry cut out blouse that i wil wear on Christmas
Large- Sterling Silver gorgeous hoops for ears that have not had nice earings in my ears since I moved here to NC
XLARGE- Diamond Paw sterling necklace!!! Could this be any cuter?
XLARGE - Soft, gorgeous soft mushy plush Blanket for my new living space. (2 living rooms, 2 bedrooms plenty of places to place it. Edie also included two books that she has written about Bigfoot which i know nothing about but will dive into shortly after I eat all my handmade christmas cookies.

Of the extras included were two kalidescopes one for me and one for my sister. Chocolate Fudge and funfetti vanilla cake smuckers shell, Zots for scrapbooking, swiss miss cocoa in four flavors, the most adorable white dancing dog that i wanted but could not afford that looks just like my Beary, Colring books and pencils, white and pink furry socks that im putting on now, country faith christmas music cd, chocolate fudge in a block, a christmas lint brush which i would never have bought myself but wanted, sea shell canidies, four stuffed christmas creatures for my pups and so much more. I love it all.

Ok, the pupparoos got their own box and toys! Each one of them opened their own toy, and of course Beary thought the ribbon and the plastic was the toy of course. The thing he was not suppose to touch. That boy will give me heart failure.
From Chocolate Seashells to foot soak, body soak for this body filled with fibro and lyme, cozy time teas, fun scrap things to use on a journal i am going to make, happy pencil sharpeners with my colored pencils and coloring books, I can go on and on and on. I love it. I just love the thought that went into this swap.

I am so happy you liked everything! I had such fun shopping for you, especially knowing you're a devoted doggy mom, like me! It's so funny, you say the dancing dog looks like Bear because that's why I bought it! I thought it looked like your dog! LOL! Enjoy everything and have a very Merry Christmas, my new friend!
