All I Got for Christmas and My Birthday!


Hey guys! Today I'm going to show you everything I got for Christmas, and include things from my birthday in the same post cuz it was a couple of days ago. 😊 
Now this isn't to brag or anything, it's just for fun cuz I like reading haul posts on other people's blogs, and I thought it would be fun to do on mine too. I got a lot of books and things I loved this year, so I'm just really excited to show them to you!

This year I joined The Broke and the Bookish's Secret Santa, and first I'm going to show you everything my secret Santa, Jordan, sent me!


She sent me all of these except for the book on top (Starfish) and the Starbucks cup on the right. Look at those adorable socks! And all of those BOOKS! 😍

And here's closeups of some of the things she sent me! I LOVE that notebooks! It's shiny and it's my favorite color! 😍 And the Reese's were devoured pretty quickly of course. We went to go see Mary Poppins Returns right after opening presents on Christmas, and I ate them with my popcorn. 😋

Look at Jasmine! She's so cute!! I've been really wanting to collect Funko Pops and I''m so happy I got TWO this year. And that washi tape! Ahh! The mermaid scales and confetti is so pretty! (I actually already had the one in the middle, but I'll just have a back up when I use all of it now! 😊)

And LOOK. AT THAT. TOTE BAG. 😍😍😍😍😍😍 I LOVE how it's pink and sparkly when it catches the light! I really do like Alice in Wonderland themed things, but I don't own many things themed around it. But I'm so happy it had the same quote: "We're all mad here." as on a necklace a friend gave me a few years ago, cuz now they'll match! 😄

Okay on the left we have this gorgeous Starbucks travel cup that my roommate Sarah got me, which came with dark chocolate hot chocolate which I love, and on the right is Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman, which was a gift from Amy! We decided to use Book Depository to send each other books as Christmas gifts, (but I ended up using Amazon cuz for some reason it didn't like me putting in a delivery address in a different country than the billing address for some reason 😑) but oh well, it worked out! And I got Amy a book on her wish list, which was Blood and Sand by C.V. Wyk. 😄


And here's a few more things from my secret santa! That AMAZING pillowcase that I pinned to the wall where you can see it, dark chocolate and milk chocolate with peanut butter from Dove, and some planner stickers! Plus a bookmark that came with the book from Amy and a scarf that another friend made me! 😊


Here's more closeups. 😉


Here's what was in the envelope! All of these individually cut planner stickers that Jordan took the time to make for me herself! They're ADORABLE and I love them! I can't wait to use them in my new 2019 planner! 😍😍


Now on to stuff I got in my stocking at a family party. I love the little snowman mug and the pretty earrings, and the sparkly socks with unicorns on them that say "have magical holidays" though they don't look particularly Christmassy, so I can wear them anytime! 😊


And here is more stuff from the stocking! I got some pretty window snowflakes, more mini Reese's, a gingerbread flavored chocolate bar, (which I melted down to make hot chocolate and it was amazing! 😋) an adorable snowman sticker, an adorable cupcake bookmark, these really cool yarn and Popsicle stick ornaments that Sarah's 7 and 8 year old cousins made, and the softest most luxurious socks I have ever felt in my life! 😍


Now here is the stuff I got for my birthday! The book on the left is also from Amy, and the one the right is from another friend. Sarah got me the Vanellope Funk Pop, which was fitting since for my birthday we went to go see Wreck it Ralph 2, (I loved it but it unexpectedly made me cry which was so rude of it. 😂) and she's SO CUTE I LOVE HER! 😍 So now that brings my Funko Pop collection to a grand total of...three. 😂

But anyway the same friend that got me The Nightingale got me the lip gloss (it smells like bubble gum!) that's sitting by the snowman family, the earring set, and the ribbon in front of Vanellope is what she wrapped them in, and the blue flecks in it reminded her of Elsa so she knew I'd like it. 😂 And I do, so I decided to keep it to wear in my hair. 

Then the cute little notebook was from Sarah's mom (she also got me a Starbucks gift card, bless her, since it's entirely her fault that I got hooked on Starbucks in the first place 😂😂) the cute felt snowman family is from my mom's friend, the calendar and the Mickey baking mold came in a Disney subscription box I got myself, and the fuzzy mittens was from another family friend, who also gave me a Target Visa gift card. They're a little small for me though, so my mom "inherited" them cuz they fit her better for some reason. 😂


Here's a closeup of the earrings! I LOVE them! They're so cute, and a few I can wear all year round. I'm really happy there were snowflakes, cuz I've always wanted dainty snowflake earrings to match a snowflake necklace my mom got me years ago, and now I finally have some! 😄




And here is a closeup of the calendar.


And all of the books I got combined from my birthday and Christmas, including two my mom bought me today that she let pick out at the bookstore as a late birthday present cuz she didn't have a chance to get me anything. 😂 Oh, and I also got Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland, who is a local author here in Alaska was also on my TBR, but technically my mom bought it for herself so...I'll have to share I guess. 😂 But including those three, combined from both Christmas and my birthday I ended up getting TEN new books!
😱 That's so awesome! I don't think I've gotten this many books as gift in...well ever. 😂

And I'm actually really excited about reading all of them!! 

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this post! Next week I'll be taking all of those end-of-year book tags and surveys that I'm way behind in doing. 😂

What are some of your favorite gifts that you got this year? Let me know in the comments, or link me to your posts! I'd love to see them!

Well I'll see you back here on Tuesday, bye! ♡🎂
