The Elementary Entourage Secret Santa Blog Hop





Alright! This is a super fun post! The crew at the Elementary Entourage did a Secret Santa gift exchange and I am just in loveeee with everything I received! My Secret Santa was the lovely Keri from Enchanted Kinder Garden.


Enchanted Kinder Garden

You know what's awesome about her? She stalked my blog to learn about things I like.. :) And she got me just that!

So about two weeks ago, I got this Red Lobster email randomly to my blog email account. I didn't even open it. I thought, sheesh, how did Red Lobster get this address and how is it sending me spam mail? I don't even get any spam on this email. SO I deleted it. Well, I have my mail forwarded to my primary email account and as I was scrolling through that account, I saw that same email again. And for no other reason than fate, I decided to open it and it was GIFT CERTIFICATE to Red Lobster from Keri. OH. MY. GOD. THANK GOODNESS for email forwarding! I am so dumb! I would have totally gotten rid of this amazing gift certificate to my favorite restaurant! (Sorry Keri..lol).

A few days later I received another box of more goodies from her and inside was all this:


In this mediocre to bad quality picture above (must practice), you see a bag of Pumpkin Spice mini donuts, Dove Chocolate Covered Cherries, bath fizz soaps, and a tumbler with my name on it. 


How beautiful is this customized cup? I mean, this is totally going to give me the kick in the butt to drink more water during the day. I am going to fill it up and keep it near me and hopefully be inspired by all the sparkles to keep on chugging' on....!...on water that is. 


I've never tried bath salts/fizzy stuff before but I can't wait to try these. Right now, my bathtub is filled with washable crayons, My Little Ponies, and other water toys. My husband really likes his bath time.  KIDDING. My daughter..my daughter takes a bath every single day and it has become her territory. But I'll steal it for one night in the near future. 


So this is my favorite part..ha.ha! She totally learned that I love anything pumpkin flavored and anything chocolate, so these two things were perfect. Let me tell you the story behind the donuts. So I got the mailing box and I opened the bag and left it in the box, and started eating the donuts all day long but my  kids had no idea because it wasn't outside of the box, it was hidden still. Then, when we were hanging out in the basement, I snuck it downstairs and would quietly go and eat them one by one without them noticing...UNTIL THEY NOTICED. And I had 2 left in the bag. And my son STOLE IT, ran upstairs, and ATE IT! It was a a fight to the finish! So, yes, perfect gift.

So Keri, I wanted to thank you so much for the thoughtful and wonderful gifts. Everything was tailored to my likes and that was super sweet!

    1. Hmm, the last time I was in a bathtub must have been about 10 years ago..lol. We moved over the summer right, and we have a nice bathtub now and I've been meaning to go in it. But my "me" time is so limited these days that something else always comes up!
