Gift Exchange

Hi Readers,
Last month I participated in my first gift exchange with a fellow blogger and friend Brandi. I would like to show you what arrived at my doorstep.

 I received cloth napkins which are the perfect color they match my kitchen colors, straws which will come in handy because I make smoothies everyday, cupcake liners I will use these very soon I have a recipe using Girl Scout Cookies, click here for the recipe. I received a book called Firefly Lane click here to read a preview and while reading this book I will use the book marker that was also included with the book.

 Last but not least the good stuff! OMG! OMG! Have you ever tried Biscoff spread and Biscoff cookies? This past November Brandi posted a recipe using Biscoff Spread click here to read more.

So I'm going to tell you what went down with the spread and cookies, let me begin by saying I'm not one who buys spread of any kind (unless you count mayonnaise). A few of my friends really like Nutella but I just think it's okay so when I opened the jar I thought it would be the same experience. Picture me standing in my kitchen with jar, cookie and knife in hand.......I spread the Biscoff on this cute little cookie and then I took a bite (momma) (momma)! I think my eyes were even closed while munching away. Total deliciousness needless to say half the jar is gone, a few days later after I got control of myself I put the lid back on the jar and placed it in the back of my pantry with the remaining cookies, I will visit this jar again in a few weeks. I'm trying count carbs but Brandi totally sabotaged me LOL!! 

This gift exchange was a lot of fun I look forward to doing another one really soon. Be sure to come by tomorrow I will have a giveaway.
