Secret Santa ~ Ho Ho Ho!!!

What's better than getting a Christmas present on Christmas? Getting a Christmas present on New Years Eve!!! It made my day!

When Tina announced her gift exchange, I was all over it!! What fun! Then Tina e-mailed me who my bloggie person that I was to be Secret Santa to and I got scared. Holy Cow! I don't know this blogger. How am I going to figure out the perfect gift for her? But with her clues "I like rubber duckies and robots" and stalking her blog like crazy for ideas, I finally made my way out shopping and was amazed at how the perfect gifts found their way to me. I love when it happens like that! Suki blogged about it HERE .

As you all know, I've been anxiously awaiting the present from MY secret Santa. The lovely Katie from Legally Fit revealed herself earlier this week and said she mailed the gift well before Christmas. I saw on the package yesterday what she paid in postage and all I have to say is that it should not have taken 11 days for it to arrive!! Poor Katie had to pay more in Postage than our lower limit on our gift exchange!!
BUT...she sure did a good job on picking things out for me. I <3 coffee...and the Christmas mug is SO CUTE! Although I've mentioned I don't prefer sweets over salty, without even knowing, she got the perfect chocolate for me: It has seasalt in it!! It is so over the top good! I don't know how in the world she knew my favorite candle scent... And to top it off, she's going to help me get out of the "I'm feeling too white blahs" I mentioned a couple weeks ago and got me some self tanner!
Katie the gifts were perfect!!! A special Happy New Year to you!!

SWEET, Christmas presents after Christmas!!!

I just read your tagged post! You are going to have so much to blog about this year!! Can't wait to read it ALL! So what race are you doing in January?

And I can't imagine running a 1/2 marathon AFTER swimming and biking!! The monkey story is hilarious! I bet you'll be thinking about that when you get to that point again this year!! You should be SO ready by June!

Yay I am so glad that you liked everything! I'm sorry that it was late but I'm glad it arrived before 2011 :) I took a guess on the candle but who doesn't like the smell of cupcakes?! Happy New Year!:0

Super pressies! And after Christmas.
I had a good laugh at your previous post too, but what a good race you had!

What a fun thing to do! I should have joined up. Next year! Chocolate with sea salt? That's something I will have to try. I am a salty person too, but the last 5 years I have succumbed to the sweet side as well. Chips will always be my first love though. And so, to be a bad example... have you tried the Jalepeno Cheetos? They're SO good!

Abby, I'm not sure what race I'll do in January yet. I was pretty proud of myself for just committing to the challenge. Now, I guess I need to pick some races :-)
