|My super adorbz prezzies!!|
The premise: get matched up with another random blogger, and mail each other a present for Valentine's Day.
To our surprise, when we got our assignments via email, we had been assigned one another. We laughed, and then were excited because that meant we wouldn't have to pay for postage. We decided to exchange our gifts at work instead.
If you haven't already enjoyed Laurin's writing over on her blog, you really should do yourself a favor and check it out. She faithfully posts something usually reflective and thoughtful every weekday, which is must more organized than my posting schedule. She runs and eats and reads and writes and is really just a generally interesting person. In addition to all that, she is my friend and semi-co-worker (which means we sort of work together, not that we drive semi-trucks together).
Have you seen the dictator Valentine? Well, that was the first thing I found in my adorable gift bag from Laurin. This gave us some good laughs (example: "Leon Trotsky thinks you're hostky", and my favorite "You're the Kim Jong Illest").
After reading all that hilarity, I delved deeper into the gift bag. There I found adorable earrings and notecards all in my wedding colors! Laurin was so kind to take into consideration the fact that I'm moving in a few weeks, and am trying to pack up all my stuff. All of the items could be fit in a pocket if necessary, she noted.
She also included a little journal, for my innermost thoughts, I'm assuming. The ones I don't share on the blog. Or maybe so I can write blogs on the go.
Thanks, Laurin! I love my prezzies! And you! PS: We never re-tried to take that picture together opening our presents. We need to do that before I depart!
