Hung 4 the Holidays: Ornament Exchange!

As a blogger, who doesn't love the opportunity to do swaps, giveaways, and other stuff that allows you to collect more stuff for around the house? I'm one, that's for sure! For the holidays, three of my favorite bloggers: Carlyn from Just Keep Sweating, Jenn from Fit Appetit, and Gina from Burning Babi Fat hosted an ornament exchange! I can never have enough ornaments, despite not having a tree this year, so I was excited to add a new one to the collection!


I was lucky enough to get Mindy, whose blog I follow anyway, so I knew a little bit about her, but got some awesome clues to find her the perfect ornament - and apparently I did well!

From Mindy's post!
Apparently this kitten looks just like one of her fur kids, Cullen, so she was super excited to see this guy come out of her package. Let me tell you, finding a (cute) cat ornament was not easy - who knew? Check out Mindy's post for her ornament love!

I was lucky enough to be adopted by my elf, Kristyn. I gave her what I thought were some pretty easy descriptors and would give her a lot to work with: Lets see. I love traveling! I'm from California, now living in Georgia by way of Texas (job), San Diego (grad school) and Arizona (undergrad). Love running, first full marathon in February! And congrats on your first 5K - hope it goes GREAT! Oh, and I love my dog, Molly. She's a German shepherd/blue heeler mix and the love of my life. :) I also love all things nail polish! I think that's a lot you can work with! Haha. Oh, one more: especially in regards to Christmas, but also all year, I love all things glittery. :)

I mean... that should be enough, right? Right. And she hit it right on the spot with this awesomely fabulous running ornament (applicable for my first major running year) from Etsy:
Just love it!
How great, right? Thanks so much Kristyn! And thanks to Carlyn, Jenn and Gina for hosting - hopefully there will be another swap to look forward to for next year!

Have you ever participated in an ornament swap (whether online or in person)? Would you participate in one?
