Secret Santa Exchange 2012

I have to send out a huge thank you to the girls over at The Broke & Bookish for organzing the 3rd annual Secret Santa Exchange. I was a little late in signing up but thankfully I was still able to take part in the exchange. I was so thrilled.

Every since I have been book blogging I have always taken part in a Secret Santa. They are so much fun and I love doing them.

This year was no exception. I sent an awesome package to a fantastic YA blogger and I saw her post and I know she really liked the jammed packed box I sent her. Not sure if she knows who it is yet or if it will be revealed?

Now onto my package. I was so thrilled to have gotten my package because I had no idea who had me since there was a few others that signed up late. But in true Secret Santa karma, my secret santa was Alita from Alita Reads. Does that name sound familiar? Well it should because for the last few years (this is the third to be exact) it has always come full circle with us. The first year she had me and then the following year I had her and this year she had me.

Alita is another Canadian blogger and blogs from out west and I was really lucky to have gotten to meet her at BEA this year. When I found out that she was going I quickly emailed her telling her that we needed to meet. It was almost like no ands ifs or buts allowed. Its too bad that we didn’t have more time to hang out but hopefully one day soon.

Here is the awesome package she sent me:

I got two books. One is A Tale Dark & Grim by Adam  Gidwitz and Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake. Both  are books that have been on my wishlist for a little while now so its nice to get them.

She also included four pouches of Stash tea in the flavors of Christmas Eve, Cinnamon Vanilla, Holiday Chai and Cranberry Pomegrande. They are all ones I enjoy drinking.

I also got some cute Page Markers. The funny thing is that everytime I go to Chapters I have been picking them up (yes that is an owl in the red one) but putting them back down and now I know why. Its like she has read my mind.

Thank you Alita that was so nice of you to send me this fantastic Secret Santa gift. I can’t wait to sit and sip one of those teas and curl up and read one of these books.
