Announcing... a Holiday Ornament Exchange!

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Now that Halloween has officially passed, I'm all about Christmas! (Sorry Thanksgiving!) In fact, I already have Mason's CHRISTMAS pajamas laid out for tonight. You think I'm kidding, but I'm not. Honestly, he wears them year round until it gets too warm for long sleeve and long pant pajamas but I like to get a head start on the holiday season and November 1st seems like as good a day as any. Plus, Seth won't let me decorate for Christmas until at least the day after Thanksgiving, so I have to start my festiveness somewhere. (He gave up on arguing about the pajamas long ago! LOL)

So, anyway, I'm going to jump in to Christmas mode real fast. (But don't worry, I'll be back tomorrow with our last installment of Countdown to Halloween sharing all about Halloween night!).

I'm super excited to announce our first annual...
 Holiday Ornament Exchange!

 I'm all about fun ornaments on my tree so this is right up my alley. I know some people go the traditional route and only put say silver and gold balls on their trees or have a color theme, but I'm all about the random, meaningful ornaments. I have one from the Christmas that we were engaged, the one where we were married, the one where we were pregnant with Mason, the one where we went on our Disney cruise, and so many more. I love how putting up all the different ornaments brings back so many fun memories!

The above image has all the details of the exchange, but to break it down...

November 1st -- sign ups open
November 7th -- sign ups close
November 8th -- partners picked and notified
November 22nd -- ship out your ornament on or before this date
December 13th -- blog post to share the ornament you got with us!

Please plan to spend about $10 on your ornament BEFORE shipping costs.
Exchange is open to US residents only (sorry!).

We hope you'll join us!
