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.
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.
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!
