Two Teens And Their Mama: Christmas In July

Christmas In July


It's the most wonderful time of the year - Christmas in July!  Welcome to the second annual gift exchange with my friends at The Blended Blog.  We had so much fun last year, we decided to do it again.  And who doesn't love peeking into other people's presents?  If you're hopping over from Shaunacey's blog, welcome to my holiday home!

I was so excited to get a package in the mail from Shaunacey.  If you don't already follow her blog, get yourself over there right now.  She has truly been one of the biggest blogging blessings, and I'm so thankful to have met her.  She's kind, witty, smart and beautiful - and also very pregnant with her third little baby.  She has a unique writing voice and I love her sense of humor.

Inside was a beautiful box.  Umm....sorry Sarah.  My gift wrapping/presentation was not this pretty.


I should have done an un-boxing sequence like a real blogger, but I'm too impatient for that. 



Look at all that wonderfulness!  Shaunacey's sweet card was lovely, plus she included a note on each item, explaining why she chose it.  Everything was perfect.

A cross body is my favorite kind of bag, and I love the size and color of this one.  That book - I've been meaning to pick it up, because I definitely need to work on my badass self.  It's coming on vacation with me next week, so you all better watch out when I get back! Coffee Crisp - WHY can't we get these in the states?


Love this.  I wonder if pineapples are on my new eating plan?


Also love.  Although it might be the opposite for me!


My very favorite gift from Shaunacey.  What a wonderful sentiment on this adorable bracelet. And it's my very first Stella & Dot piece!


Thank you, Shaunacey, for such thoughtful gifts. I'll think of you every time I use them!

Now, hop on over to Sarah's blog to see what I sent her.  And Merry Christmas!

    1. We set a limit last year, but this year we didn't. Although it seems like everyone was in the same ball park.

  17. How fun! I love all the pieces but I think it's so sweet that each piece came with a little note, totally making it personal. You really can't get Coffee Crisp in the states? Hmmm, I guess I never looked.
