Thanks! I love that these are colors that I don't have much of in my collection.  I'm itching to wear those emerald greens tomorrow!

@@CurlyTails I am so, so glad that you enjoyed everything! Since this was my first time (hee hee) I was really nervous and a little unsure if my choices would suit. I am so happy they did!

 

I know how you feel about the CaraMacs, though! When I was growing up, my parents owned a condo in Honolulu, near Wakiki and we always, always had macadamia nut treats. I thought it would be ages before I saw and ABC Store, and then I moved to Vegas - it's like heaven, LOL!

 

Again, I am super thrilled that everything arrived in time, and that you can put it all to use! Merry Christmas, to you and yours, m'dear! xoxo

So there's persons A, B, and C. A gives to B. But then C gives to A. And then B gives to C. That way, everyone gives once and everyone gets once. (I hope that made some sort of sense....)

 

Gotcha!  Makes total sense.  Thanks!

I'm opening mine tomorrow morning. I originally was going to open it the day I got it then thought, "I think I'd like a little something to open on Christmas since I rarely get anything on Christmas to open."

Me too!  But then I found out my son and his wife got me a gift - and they are in town from North Carolina (they are Army - Ft. Bragg) and it is a long story but they stay at his dad's house, but are coming over tomorrow morning until the afternoon!!   And then a friend that I exchange with every year brought me something yesterday, so now I'm eyeing my box going hmmm......

 

I think I forgot to post that I put my box in the garage, out of sight out of mind, but then I brought it back in...sooooo much safer where I can see it!  LOL!!!  That damn box is taunting me!!! :w00t:

 

(side note:  On auto-pilot, I bought my friend her gift - ahem...L'OcciBox...ahem...and didn't even think of getting anything in return - she's actually been out of the country the last two Christmases (away 2 years on job assignment), but we brought our gifts for each other on the same day, unannounced!  I love things like that.)   :P

You're a role model and inspiration! lol! I had the thought that it would be nice to wait until christmas, since I never really get gifts on christmas either, but I folded immediately. I'M WEAK!

So, I was awakened this morning by a knock on the door (HELLO this is my 2 weeks I can sleep in) and I was a little peeved, until I looked outside and saw a box on my doorstep from my lovely santee, @meaganola!

 

She sent me a box full of her favorite Trader Joe's goodies! (Yeah, I am one of those sad people who does not live near a TJ's...and I see everyone talk about their TJ treats at holidays and pout, a lot).

 

AND the December OTM! (Yeah, I've whined on here plenty about the fact that I can never manage to get my hands on an OTM, since I"m always at work at that time and I've been in withdrawal since my 6 months ran out aaaaaages ago.)

THANK YOU MEAGAN! It's been kind of a bummer of a week (I tend to get the holiday blahs since I know the most christmas I'll have this year is making my animals unwrap things, LOL) and this totally helped and made me feel a little sappy. You so made my week. <3 <3

I was wondering why you never posted :)

 

Kudos to you for waiting so long! I hope you like everything.

@@Donna529 I'm glad you like everything!! I was so excited when I saw that stila palette, it seemed perfect for you and the colors are so pretty! And I'm happy you like the bag! It was a struggle, my machine got jammed twice while sewing it, and the second time, it didn't all come out properly so my threads kept breaking ... which is why some of the sitches are uneven and it took like 5x as long as it should have haha, but hey I'm still learning!

Yay, it made it early! When I saw that you would be working during the OTM window, I knew I had to get that for you no matter what, but when I saw you were my Santa, I had to get the TJ's goodies! Because SUGAR HIGH!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!! I need to pop in to say that I was gifted an AMAZING gift by the lovely @@lovepink :) The gift was perfect in EVERY WAY and I have pictures to do a full reveal but right now I'm super busy. I'm leaving for home in a few hours and need to pack and clean! But! I opened everything yesterday and get to put it all away today and relive the gloriousness that is this gift.

 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU @@lovepink for an amazing gift.

 

To tide y'all over, just know that it's a Game of Thrones themed gift. Uh-maz-ing.

 @allistra44 When will the Santa-Giftee list be revealed? After everyone's gift gets delivered?

Yep, after they're all delivered. I know there's going to be a few late arrivals so hopefully around January 4th/5th or so :)

Sorry I've been so busy but wanted to let my Secret Santa know that I received her gift today!! I'm waiting to open it until tomorrow :)  Reveal to be up as soon as possible. Thank you so much ahead of time, I know it will be fabulous. And also wanted to wish everyone a very beautiful holiday and Merry Christmas. You are all amazing, the generosity has been beyond amazing.

Aww, I arrived home to discover a super sweet package from @, thanking me for my help in coordinating Secret Santa!   I received tracking for it Monday via Elfster, but I thought it was my Nails Secret Santa package, but it was a completely different and total surprise present!  Finally, my lap was not infested with kitties long enough to be able to open it!  (This didn’t last long.  Ed keeps moving back and forth from my lap to my chest, and he alternates between grooming himself, trying to groom me, and nuzzling me, except he’s a wee bit too uncoordinated to properly nuzzle thanks to developmental issues, so it’s like the sweetest head butting in the world.  Snuggly kitty!)

A hair mask!  Mud masks!  Hand cream!  Nail polish!  A Lush bubble bar!  (I believe this little guy was specifically a Christmas Penguin bubble bar before I accidentally smushed him.)  Fancy-pants skincare I'm too cheap to buy for myself!  And in the first photo but not the second because kitties were *far* too interested in it for my comfort:  Some sort of magical chocolate-nut-toffee delight!  I'll get all *sorts* of pampered and spoiled!

 

Thank you, @!  That was completely unexpected and far too kind for words!

:wub:   You're welcome.  I just felt with everyone so busy with life and work etc. you guys taking the time to run this AMAZING Secret Santa SUPERFUNFANTASTIC Exchange...well I just wanted to thank you.

 

I've been having the time of my life getting connected a bit more with all the lovely ladies here, and I'm not gonna lie, I think the reveals have affected me in a few ways...first...they made me cry like a baby for some of you!!  Second...they enable me!!  Oh yes, Monkey See-Monkey Want syndrome!!  I could go on and on, but I've some presents to wrap still LOL!  Merry Christmas!!

I want to open my present sooooooooo bad!!  I am waiting for my hand to stop hurting (numb to the point of painful).  It's about halfway better, so maybe another hour or so...I can't wait!!!

    • Yet whilst more and more land-based casinos are being closed down, online casinos are thriving. The advantages of playing casino games online are numerous. The bonuses at casinobonusesfinder.com are just an example. If you have only ever played in a brick and mortar casino, the advantages of playing online will soon become very clear to you. The first thing is the bonuses obviously. I feel that you have way more options online.
    • I think your nails are sexy as hell and even shaving legs is something I have thought about. It is girly but I like that feminine touch and some women are very fucking turned on seeing a guy express that side of himself, especially if it comes to outdoing the woman with even better nails, or wearing sexier lipstick than her. Like you said if it is sexy/classy and wild and makes you feel very deluxe and sexy then go for it!! Why not?? People have an issue with it then f*** them. always gonna have haters. They are just jealous, we support you!! -Micheal

    • I regrew my hair and you can too. –I've been bleaching my hair on and off since forever. My hair wouldn't grow any longer it would just snap off. I've dreamed about having thick, long hair. And when I say dreamed, I mean it quite literally. So I decided to do something about it. My friend suggested Biotin when we were talking about my hair loss. I’ve tried like 4 different brands until I found that the best one for me. For me, the best is https://bit.ly/2KiqCge my friends also use this one.
