I love the Blogger Secret Santa gift exchange hosted by the wonderful Tracy at The Printable Pony. And while I love love love giving gifts, receiving them is equally as fun when you’re working with a bunch of horse lovers.
Probably the best part of this gift exchange, besides it being with a bunch of horse lovers, is that you fill out some information about yourself, and get to say what you like and what you may want. I’m pretty sure I said something like “I REALLY LIKE PURPLE.” Because, let’s be honest, I don’t want to get something in navy or hot pink. I am lucky enough to always get amazing Secret Santas. Both years were new to me bloggers, but they nailed it, and now I not only have great gifts that remind me of them, but I also have two blogs that I love to read.
This year, I was lucky again! Michelle from Fat Buckskin in a Little Suit a blog I already read and love, was my Secret Santa! And once again, I got SO MUCH PURPLE.
I was like a little kid, squealing with excitement when it arrived. First off, the main attraction, is the beautiful grooming tote bag that is not only purple, but IT HAS JUNE’S NAME ON IT!! I mean, love love love.
I didn’t own a purple brush, which is just not right, but now I do! It’s already neatly placed in the new purple tote. The purple bag of Hershey’s Kisses? Purple AND Chocolate? Yeah, that’s not going to last long!
Along with some relaxing Ylang-Ylang lotion, there was also a box of Irish Breakfast Tea. Because I am pretty sure along with “I LOVE PURPLE” I also probably said “I LOVE EVERYTHING IRISH.” And like a good Irish lass, I am a huge tea drinker, so this will probably last as long as the Kisses…
So, thank you Michelle! And thank you Tracy! This is always such a fun part of the year! My Secret Santa gift is in the mail to its recipient and I can only hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed getting it together for them!
