My Favorite Christmas Presents & a Swap.

So I took part in a swap before Christmas and things got so busy I forgot to post about it! I happen to have gotten the best partner ever! You all know how I love Owls....well here is what I got!Sorry the pictures aren't too great but I hung this up right away and then tried to get a picture without taking it down! She made this owl garland for me! It's so cute! The tummies of the owls spell out Merry Christmas!
here's a close up! Isn't it too cute!??

then she made me this super cute owl ornament! I love it! A lot of people noticed it on my tree and asked me about it!
Thanks so much Chickens in the Basement
Even though I'm a little behind, I really do appreciate and love my swap items to much!

So...on to my Christmas presents! I got some great stuff for Christmas, but I wanted to share with you a few of my absolute favorites!These pot holders are from my Grandma! I had wanted these and I went back to get them and they were gone...and I was so sad! I didn't even tell her that and there they were in my stack of presents! It's like she read my mind!
Pastariffic!!!!!!! I recieved this from Grandma! Love it, already used it a couple of times!

My brother and his wife got me this book! Love Kathy Griffin, can't wait to read it!

I'm not sure why, but I love these shoes! They are just too cute!
My parents bought them for me!The Sookie Stackhouse collection! Book number 2 is missing because it is in the bedroom being read right now! These are from my parents as well.
A Chester bag...well we all know how I feel about Chester bags! This is from the parents too!
I wanted one of these water bottles really bad! They are $20 each (which is too much for me to pay...because I am cheap!) but the Husband bought me this for Christmas and I was thrilled!
That's my school Symbol is case you didn't know!
The husband bought me this coat! Too cute isn't is? I love it!
Also the husband bought me this IU hoddie! Our school colors are red and white but I am not a fan of red so this blue and pink is nice!

So that is it for now!

    Of all the photos you put on your blog, one photo caught my attention. The Sookie Stackhouse collection, how I love watching the tv series on HBO. I love the story so much, much love than twilight.

  12. I just read Kathy Griffin's book and it was GREAT! The sookie stackhouse books are really great too! Have fun reading!

  13. Swaps are always so much fun! That owl garland is adorable and so creative. You really did get a great partner. The pink felt owl ornament is also really cute.

    That’s great that your Grandma got you the potholders that you wanted. She really must be a mind reader ;) I love the new sneaks. The gray/blue combo is really cute. I have the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series and really need to start reading it. That’s awesome that you got the whole collection! I love that green coat. It looks like you had a great Christmas :)
