Every Christmas, my friends and I decide to play Secret Santa and give each other presents. This year we were all so busy that we couldn't celebrate our Secret Santa until today!

I was SOOO surprised with the thoughtful present I received this year! Everything about the present showed how much thought and care my friend put into it: the bag was blue (my favorite color) with a star balloon (I LOVE stars!), oh and the presents inside were just per-fect!

The presents inside were all Candyland themed! I dunno if I have ever mentioned it before, but I am completely obsessed with candy products. My friend somehow remembered that about me and gave me a donut charm, smores earrings, a gumdrop umbrella, Nerd flavored chapstick, and lots of chocolate kisses!

I couldn't believe that my friend knew me as well as he did. This present made me feel super special and loved :)

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this dress:
