BGB Holiday Gift Exchange! #BGBCommunity
Hey ALL! Happy FRIDAY ? Guys, it’s been a long couple weeks at work. Tons of paperwork, long meetings… I’ve been trying hard to get into the Christmas spirit but with little luck. It probably doesn’t help that I didn’t decorate this year. Which is SERIOUSLY unlike me. I really do love the holiday season. But with my husband being gone during the week for the past three weeks (he travels sooo much sometimes!) and us leaving to head back home to our parents for an entire week over Christmas, it just didn’t feel worth it to get out the decorations and put up a tree like we usually do. But let me tell you, I am going to be THAT much more excited to be home all week because my parent’s house is always decked out. Big tree with tons of ornaments, lights on the house, lights in the living room, garland and lights on the railing, lights in the kitchen…. Yeah, there are a lot of lights. But it so festive and cozy I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Speaking of festive….
I am a part of this AMAZING blogging community, run by Georgie and Christina and these mugs are part of our #BGBCommunity Secret Santa Gift Exchange. Seriously guys, I wouldn’t be where I am on this blog without this amazing community. All the girls are friendly, supportive, encouraging, inspiring. I couldn’t say enough nice things about our little group Bloggers Gonna Blog.
My gift comes from Smitha, from Running with SD Mom. She NAILED it with these mugs. I love tea, coffee, matcha lattes, warm turmeric milk at night (yes, it’s true) and I love beautiful mugs to enjoy said drinks from. I think it secretly makes whatever I am drinking taste 10x better when you’re using a fun mug. 😀
Alright, so I love these mugs. But THEN I get this email from Starbucks just the other day saying Smitha “wanted to make my day” and that she had sent an eGift! Um, mission accomplished. My day was totally made. ? Thank you SO much Smitha for your generosity and lovely gifts. During long meeting days at work, I more often than not stop for Starbucks on my way into work. So this will certainly fuel my mornings well ☕️☕️☕️
My “Secret Santa” giftee was Margaret over at Young and Rungry! Be sure to head to her page to see what I got her! I had fun picking her stuff out and creeping on her Instagram ?heehee
Well the husband and I are headed back to our hometown/parent’s houses tomorrow bright and early (8 hour drive!!?). We’ll be hanging out for a whole week and I can’t WAIT to be reunited with all my siblings (5 of them ?), family, friends, and watch The Family Stone and The Santa Claus and Elf and all the other holiday movies not on Netflix! ?
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
Thanks again to Georgie and Christina for organizing this wonderful event. It certainly helped put me in the holiday spirit! Love you girlies!! ?
