Bloggers Spread Holiday Cheer


Ho, Ho, Ho, The countdown to Christmas is on!  Have you been spreading Holiday cheer?  We both got a little bit of holiday cheer this week when we received our secret blogger cards in the mail.

 
I got this beautiful card from the lovely Mary Beth from Tutus and Tennies! She so graciously sent me a Starbucks gift card. I was SO excited to see this because we now have THREE Starbucks with in three square miles! 
Last weekend after my run I got this Gingerbread Frappuccino and it was SO yummy!  I have the Chocolate Peppermint Frappe on my list for next time. Thank You Mary Beth! This was a wonderful holiday surprise!
 
I also sent my Holiday card out this week to my blogger friend. My blogger is a runner and Disney lover much like myself. I searched and searched for a Disney Christmas Card and the only ones I could find were for "Grand Children". Womp womp! I hope she liked my card anyway and the little "surprise" I've included!   -M
 
 
My secret blogger was the lovely Jennifer from Running on Lentils!  Jennifer is a fellow PA gal and she was so generous to send me an Amazon Gift Card! I have my eye on a couple running books so I am sure this will come in handy. Thank you so much Jennifer. You are so kind.

I put my holiday card  (and surprise) in the mail this week too. I won't say who my secret blogger is, but she also likes Disney, She loves to race and she lives on the opposite side of the country from me! Can you guess who?  -L

Thank you to everyone who participated in the card swap. It has been a lot of fun reading posts about all of you who are spreading the holiday cheer around. If you missed signing up this time, perhaps you can join us again next year.  If you haven't shared your holiday cheer yet, be sure to post about it and tag us! We'd love to read about!

  7. So many Starbucks. Sounds like my area. We have a Starbucks by a B&N, across the street from that there's a drive-thru Starbucks, and kitty-corner is a Starbucks in a grocery store.

  11. Glad you liked it, Lacey! I did so many searches for "ultra running gifts" & "Disney run gifts" but just couldn't find something to fit in the card. I haven't received my card yet but am excited to see who it's from! Thanks again for hosting this fun way to spread holiday cheer!

  15. I just sent out my card this morning! I found a really cute giftcard with a fox on it (I'm a sucker for woodland creatures.) I can't believe December is halfway over. It's flying. :)
