Friday Fun! (Holiday Swap)

Hello my lovely readers!  This year I get to have Christmas Eve off since Christmas falls on a Saturday.  Yay!  I am writing this blog post sitting on my couch with a snoring kitty on my lap listening to decidedly not holiday themed music.  Hehe.  My dad is coming to visit me this weekend for the holiday.  He should be arriving in a few hours.  I already cleaned all the things! so now I get to just relax, blog, and read.

I was really excited to discover my book blogger holiday swap present on my front porch this morning!  What excellent timing!  I was also thrilled to see it came all the way from California.  It was like receiving a box of warm sunshine.  Val of Truth Be Told really went all out.  I was surprised to see so many presents to unwrap when I opened the box. 🙂

So many presents!

Because I have almost zero patience or capability to delay gratification, I decided to open them right away. 🙂

I’m really touched and surprised to see how well Val understands what I like from just my blog and info I put in on the form.

Such wonderful presents!

The Scars bookmark really touched me, as it’s a book on self-injuring, and you all know how much I advocate for mental illnesses.  The necklace is truly lovely and really has a California feel to it.  I was just saying to some of my friends that I really need acquire more necklaces, so that was good timing.  The card from a local museum near Val is truly lovely too!  It’s definitely going to make it to my fridge.  The actual squeeing came when I unwrapped the books, of course though.  The Monstrumologist has been on my wishlist *forever*.  I’ve never even heard of Vegan on the Cheap (hard to find a veg cookbook I haven’t heard of), and it looks so amazing!  All the recipes sound amazing and most of them cost $1 to $2 per serving.  Such thoughtful presents!

Thanks a bunch, Val! You made my first holiday swap experience really awesome. 🙂

Happy holiday weekend everyone!

      I haven’t yet! But I’m keeping an eye on her blog, and she seems uber-busy with the holidays due to having kids in the house, so I’m hoping she’s received it and just hasn’t had a chance to blog it yet. 🙂
