christmas swap

Today is a good day. It's Friday, my hair is washed, I treated myself to Starbucks, I am wearing new kicks (these ones in case you were curious), my sister and I are headed to my parents for the weekend.... and I finally get to show off the gifts I got from the Christmas Swap that Kasey from Life and Love with Mr. Wonderful hosted. 

I was super excited to be paired up with Laura from Happily Ever Parker. The girl didn't disappoint. Here is the one problem though, I took a bunch of pictures with my DSLR of the cute items, buttttttI I still can't find my camera charger and it's dead and I can't upload them. Wa wahhhhhh. 



Oh, well. This iphone picture will have to do. The gifts were super cute. I was in need of new hair ties (it's like she knew!) and I can't wait to use the new stationary...did I mention the dark chocolate peppermint bark is already gone? whoopsies Plus, I am currently wearing the gold glitter nail polish (proof), - granted it's already chipped from when I put it on the other day, but you can't win 'em all. 

Thanks again, Laura! And extra thanks to my girl Kasey for hosting too :)

And since it's #backthatazzup Friday, with Whitney I wanted to share a different version of the Christmas song I can't get enough of 'This Christmas'. This version is done by Christian Aguilera, which side note: can we talk about how happy I am she is back to normal. Less spray tan and less annoying! Good for her.

Shoe jealousy, right here.

I want to try that kind of hair tie! I'm tired of rubber bands that rip my hair out, and mine is super curly so it's even worse.

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

How fun!! You can never, ever have too many hair ties :)

Have fun this weekend!!

I have now tried every battery charger in my family and it looks like I'm buying instead of borrowing. :(
