To polish off 2013, my lovely blogger friends decided to send Christmas packages to each other. I love our tradition of sending goodies in the mail so much, especially because it feels like we’re not so far away.
This holiday season, Allison sent me a big box of goodies. I was waiting all year for a box from her because she has been whipping up homemade marshmallows and I’m officially the last person to taste her wonderful mallows! They did not disappoint…perfect cranberry marshmallows that are gooey, fluffy, sweet, and tart perfection.
Allison must know I spend most of my days running to and from various jobs without a lot of meal time because she got me an insulated lunch box with cute Tupperware for meals on the go! Little does she know, she’ll be joining the club soon when she starts her graduate program this year!
To fill the lunch box, she also included Happy Hippo hazelnut biscuits (Yum) and chocolate kale. I’m sorry friends, the chocolate kale horrifies me. I still haven’t tried it, but I’m hoping to conquer my fears in 2014. She also included a bottle opener, no doubt to fuel my beer-drinking habits.
If that wasn’t enough, she also sent me a gorgeous turquoise scarf! It’s beautiful! I love it so hard.
I have a severe scarf obsession and wore it almost the entire time I was in Minnesota for the holidays. I can’t wait for more cold weather to wear it again. Beauty!
Thanks so much for the thoughtful gifts, Allison. If you haven’t read her blog yet, you should. She writes about adventures in running, parenting a 5 year old who loves glitter, whipping up fabulous meals for her family, and so much more.
