opening presents: february edition

If you've been following me for a hot minute then you know how crazy I am for Christmas. How I sink into a great deep depression when it is over and all that (okay, maybe I'm not that crazy). However, this year is the tops because I participated in a Valentine's Day Party. And no, not the kind where you sit in a circle and "deliver" your cards and candy to your classmates. And no, not the kind where you hang out with your friends drinking a lot and bashing everything lovey dovey. This is the kind of Valentine's Day party where you meet a new blog friend and exchange gifts via snail mail. And it's the kind of party that Casey, Lauren, Alycia, Nicole, and Ashlee threw.

Which kind of makes it the best party ever because who doesn't l-o-v-e getting packages? Seriously, made my day when I came home to a little brown box on my front doorstep. It's like Christmas in February! Mind blown. 

I was paired with the ever so lovely Kodi over at grey et al. And lemme tell ya, Kodi is one cool gal. She lives in Wisconsin (this Southern girl is shivering just at the thought) with her husband. She works in photography which is just about one of the coolest jobs out there (says the girl who only posts phone camera pictures, take my word for it) and she has uh-mazing fashion sense. I am seriously considering having her come down just to style my wardrobe for me 'cause you know, that is not at all ridiculous. Trust me, you'll agree when you go check out her blog and see the outfits. And see the beautiful pictures she takes. And then don't come back to my blog and judge my pictures. ;)

Are you ready for some phone pictures of Christmas from Kodi? Should I say Kristmas from Kodi? Yes, way cooler. 


Clockwise from top left:
1- Obviously too excited to take a picture before ripping it open. 
2- A sweet note! Another fun fact about Kodi, very neat and pretty handwriting, just in case y'all were wondering.
3- What female doesn't love some Lip Smackers?
4- Kodi must have gotten the memo that Georgia winter is rain rain rain. And now I have an umbrella to face the nasty rainy winter. Can you believe I didn't have an umbrella? Better believe it.
5- The best hair bands ever. They don't leave a crease in this thinner than thin hair 'o mine. Thank ya, Jesus.
6- A scarf that I have literally worn every day since opening the package. Same scarf, different day. Is that a saying too? It should be. 

Check our Kodi's blog to see the gifts I sent her! Spoiler alert: they are Valetine-y!
