A few weeks ago Brandi from do Not Disturb This Groove sent me an email asking me if I would like to participate in a Favorite Things Blogger Gift Exchange. I of course said yes because it sounded like so much fun. What I forgot about is how much I detest buying gifts for people. Not because I don’t want to give a gift but because the pressure I put on myself to find the perfect gift is enough to drive me insane. This is why if you are my friend you will more than likely not receive a birthday gift from me. It’s not that I don’t love you and want to give you something, it’s just that I don’t know what to give so I become paralyzed and do nothing. Bad friend, I know. If you have ever done the Five Love Languages by Gary Smalley, I can tell you that gifts is at the very bottom of my list. In fact, it fell off my list. My friend and Haven room mate, Lisa from Before Meets After was my bloggy friend with who I was doing the gift exchange.
My gift from Lisa arrived in the mail the other day and it was PERFECT! Hello, you had me at Hydrangeas and black which is one of my favorite colors. How cute is this camera strap from a diva and 3 dudes design?
This is about all you will see of me right now as I am sporting a Rudolph nose from blowing it 324 times a day. After all the painting I’ve done in the past two days plus having a sick kid in my bed coughing and keeping me awake for hours, I think I’ve caught the plague that is currently running through our home.
Thank you Brandi for this fun idea and including me! Thank you Lisa for playing along with me, finding the perfect gift and I can’t wait to meet you in June!
So I’m signing off today, I need to go blow my nose again. Check back tomorrow as I’ll be guest posting at one of my favorite blog’s on the web. You love her too, I know you do!
Signing off, Typhoid Mary
