I LOVE MY SECRET SANTA

This afternoon, the mail person brought me a big ole package from Tracy at A Simple Country Life.

At first I was like, I don't know anyone from Alabama. But then, I remembered that my Secret Santa was on it's way. I was so excited. I could not control myself and I ripped into the box right there at the bus stop. (I was waiting on my kids' bus).
And inside, oh girls, inside this box was a beautifully wrapped gift box.
(In case you haven't figured me out yet, I couldn't wait). Again, I ripped into the Christmas paper and lo and behold, there was a beautiful picture of a crystal dessert plate on the outside of this box. Dare I hope? I have never owned anything this beautiful before. So, I was holding my breath and I slowly pulled the tape of the opening and inside were two more cardboard boxes. Man, can this gal wrap or what? So I opened the smaller box first and nearly screamed. It was the bottom half of the dessert dome. Yippee!!!!! I have a Shannon crystal dessert dome. Just in time for me to use at Christmas. (Cause we are having Christmas at my house this year). Thank you Tracy, so very much for this beautiful gift. I thank Kori for all her hard work and matching us all up. I am going to try to post a picture, good luck to me on this, it didn't work out with the tree.

Ohhhhhhh I'm so happy it arrived safely, I have worried to death it would get broken during it's trip to your house. I'm happy you like it and hope you get many years of enjoyment out of it.


Merry Christmas!

OK, I've never heard of a dessert dome, but now I'm thinking I really need to have one.
