What I Found When I Was Wrapping Gifts December 21, 2009

As I checked the mail for the last time before leaving for vacation, I was a little disappointed.  I still had not received my Book Blogger Holiday Swap Gift. It looked like I was just going to have to wait until after Christmas.

[Insert 19-hour drive from Florida to Michigan]

The day after I arrived in Michigan, I went over to my in-laws to pick up the packages that I had shipped there from Amazon.  I took them back to my mom’s and happily sat down to wrap all the gifts.  As I opened one, it was already wrapped.  I didn’t remember asking for gift wrap on any of them so it was a little strange.  I had Ben inspect it to see what it was.  Turns out it was my Holiday Swap gift!  I figured it would be sent to my home in Florida because that’s the address I provided on my form, but my Secret Santa outsmarted me by purchasing it off my amazon wishlist and sending it to the address listed there (BTW, I am very glad that it was not sent to any of the bad addresses on my amazon account – I’m not sure what would have happened if it ended up at my parent’s old house or a random apartment in San Francisco or Tarpon Springs).  What a pleasant surprise.

I think I’ve deduced who my Secret Santa is (tell me if I’m wrong), so thank you Amy of Amy Reads Good Books for my present.  She got me:

I am very excited to get to this last installment of the Betsy-Tacy books. I am also thankful for the two new blogs to read as a result of the Holiday Swap.

Happy Holidays!

    Oh how fun! I hope you enjoy it. I am working my way up to that one. Betsy is still in high school where I’m at.
