Days 1-6 of The Countdown

So as previous blog post suggested, my mom had sent me a package full of goodies to mark the 22 days of our countdown until the come visit! So without further ado, the first 6 days include:

1. White Christmas Tree lights!

2. Ornaments and hooks

3. Hawaiian Punch water flavor

4. James Patterson book: A Christmas Wedding

5. Potato Soup Mix

6. Pizza gift card!

Tomorrow I shall see what #7 holds. The clue is: This might come in handy tomorrow! Something old, but not an Alex and Ani! Which makes me think it’s a bracelet. But I am not sure what December 8 is and why I would need a bracelet tomorrow. Hmmmm!! Darrin and Daniel bet mom that I would open them all at once, whats the fun in that?! The anticipation and riddles make it much more fun!!

I have been frequently purchasing Christmas presents of my own and I can’t wait until my family gets here to receive them all!! Let’s just say, I happen to know a few people who knew someone who could hook me up. 🙂


25 Days of Christmas

If you are friends with me on Facebook, maybe you saw my most recent post about a package I received today from my mom. She thought that in the 22 days that we have between now and when they come to visit, she would give a present for me to open everyday along with clues with what is in each. Tomorrow begins day one (December 1). The clue is as follows: Steady, White, Colored, Twinkle, big or small, it is all a debate. Or is it? I want to say I have a guess on this one. But I will have to wait until tomorrow to find out for sure, I guess. I can’t wait until they come down and I can share all the fun with them! They already have tons of plans made out for the family and I hope to be able to be included in some of them. I did get one day off for sure in which we have a backstage tour and lunch at Biergarten and Marlee Matlin doing Candlelight Processional in the evening. It’s definitely going to be a day full of Christmas spirit, which is a great thing since it is on December 23 🙂

Stay tuned for more presents and more clues!!
