#TBTBSanta - Kayla's Unveiling of Her Goodies

For the past three or so years, I've participated in the Broke & Bookish Secret Santa, and it's always a lot of fun. I sent out the goodies to my recipient (she's not been home to receive her package yet, so I'm not spoiling) a two weeks or so ago, and I received my package from my Secret Santa earlier this week at the most perfect time. (My family and I get a little nutso around the holidays, so distractions are a good thing.)

My Goodies

Chris from Rocklin, California (I haven't been able to figure out who this person is yet, unfortunately) sent me a fantastic package. I came home from work to find this:

Do you guys get the same surge of pleasure to get a cardboard box on your doorstep with your name on it? And here's what was inside:

That cute mini-sweater? It's a Christmas card that lights up and sings. I hung that bad boy right on my tree.

I only wear socks in the winter, but I was super-excited to get these. I'll be wearing them to our deer club in the near future to make the other members jealous of my toasty feet.

I am a part of a family that is overrun with elves from the shelf. I say that in plural because we have a boy and a girl - Jimmy and Maria - as well as Uncle Si, who came with Uncle Si the Christmas Elf. That being said, these have already been stolen by my 8 year old.

I got a little overly excited, so I didn't take a picture of the wrapped gift. But look! I got Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay! *dances*

I managed to compose myself this time, but it was difficult as it had wrapping paper and was in the shape of a book!

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee - woohoo!

I'm such a chocoholic that this was almost the best thing about the box - CHOCOLATES!

Final View

Thank you so very, very much, Chris! Once I figure out who you are, I'll thank you properly.

Side Note

I hope everyone of you who celebrates Christmas had a wonderful day yesterday, and those of you who don't, I hope you enjoyed the Doctor Who marathon that has been going on the past few days on BBC. In any case, happy holidays to all, no matter what you celebrate!


  1. I nearly fell off the bed laughing at the post title. Unveiling Your Goodies are you? That should get a high page rank. ;)

    Great gifts, though! What is a deer club?

    1. Hehe, you liked that, huh? ;-)

      The deer club is just what we call my boyfriend's hunting club. I don't hunt, but I hang out there with him on the weekends. We play poker on Friday and Saturday nights during deer season, and I'm pretty addicted.


You are going to put words in my box?! *squeezes you* Now I shall stalk YOUR blog!
