12 Days of Christmas Swap: Days 5 through 7

It’s been really hard to contain myself and not open all the presents at once but I’ve managed to do that for a week. If you want to check out what gifts I opened during the first 4 days of the swap, you can go here and here.

This week it’s been incredibly cold here in town, and I especially feel it when I have to leave home at 5:30 a.m. to go to work! So, opening the next present and finding it was a box of apple cider drink mix, was a godsend. I curled up with my laptop and a blanket in the living room, and of course, some hot cider in the mug April gave me just one day prior.


I sort of knew I would be getting this, but that doesn’t make it any less of a fantastically awesome gift. On the sixth day of Christmas, April gave to me…a book WRITTEN BY HER! Thanks a lot, April, for the book (and the nice little message inside). I’m sure I’ll love it! I’ll start reading as soon as I finish the one I’m on now.


On the 7th day I opened this box of peach lemonade mix, which I wasn’t too thrilled about, to be honest. As I was about to leave the box in the pantry, I noticed there was tape at the top, which I found weird, so I opened it, and inside was this really festive, Christmas-tree shaped cookie cutter, which I loved! I don’t bake a lot but this will encourage me to do so during the holidays, plus it can also be a sandwich cutter!
