Secret Santa and the gifts

I found myself involved in a lot of Secret Santa things this year.  It was kind of out of control, but I’m really glad that I took part in this holiday ritual.  And outside of the Secret Santa games, I got some really cool stuff that I’m excited to share with you guys.  (Warning: you may not care about the gifts I have received before Christmas.)


Secret Santa gifts include:

The Skinnytaste cookbook from my Fitbloggin’ group. I was wicked excited to get this cookbook. I’ve been eyeing it for a while but I never purchased it. This was definitely one thing I wanted this year.

I also received some Nuun from my work Secret Santa! That gift was fitting because I’ve recently been named a Nuunbassador!  I love Nuun!

I got an iTunes gift card from our GNO (Girl’s Night Out) club.  I’m excited to download some good songs to have.  That’s the bad thing about having Spotify.  You don’t really own any music and you’re at the mercy of the app.  This way I can have something that is mine.


My running group Secret Santa gave me some Root Beer GU and a Chicago Bears beanie!  I’m a Bears fan and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  I was super excited for the beanie…and then there was the GU.  I loved it!

But my besties sent me some really great gifts that I love too.  These ladies were pulling on my heart strings with these gifts.  Mandie sent Willie and I these personalized ornaments.  Mine was from the Ultracentric race where I got third place overall female and it says it on there.  How cute is that?  I’m glad to have it because I’m never going to place in my age group again and I’ll remember it forever.  And then Shelby sent me the pictures in the frame which was so cute.  Three pictures over different periods of time.  It’s amazing to see how much has changed from each picture to the next.  I thought it was really cool.


And then this morning, our fearless gym bosses got us these bags.  One should not get that excited over a gym bag but I was, especially because it has my name on it.  No one can take it from me!

Those are just a few gifts I received already.  I don’t expect much more.  I like to keep it low key for Christmas!  But I still want to know, what is on your Christmas list?
