Okay, I feel so bad, because I didn't have my USB cable when I was home, so I couldn't upload pictures!  So here is the wonderful loot I got from princesakati:

The lovely stocking!  It's green on the top, kind of hard to see in the picture.  It's hanging next to my door (since my apartment lacks a fireplace). Smiley

The loot!  It included a card with GA postcards in it, chocolate, embroidery stuff to make a purse (which is the FIRST thing I'm doing after finals, I want to play with it so badly!), a journal (because I'm a Professional Writing/Editing major) that says "Princess of Quite a Lot," bath bomb, soap, eye pillow, pin cushion, pouch (fits my cell phone perfectly), and my favorite, THE PILLOWCASE with a kitty on it!  I have a pillow form around here somewhere for it, just have to locate that. Wink

Also included were sparkly yarn, knitting needles, and instructions, but I forgot to snap a pic of those.

And, ornaments, which have already made their way to my mini-tree! Smiley

Everything is great!  Thanks so much! Smiley

Awww, katie_ramone, don't feel bad!  I was on the list too!  This time of the year is hectic, so I try to make sure to keep everyone in order.

OMG Kmac you rock!!!  Here I was, the whole way home depressed cause I had to leave Kev back at his temporary apartment (we're living almost 4 hours apart cause of our jobs till I can get transferred) and thinking about how Christmas was going to suck and thinking about not even putting up a tree or anything and I get home and see this huge box!!!!

I opened it to find...

Then, I started digging in and found all of this!!!

Just look at all of this stuff!!!

I got:

scented candles
Santa socks
a Christmas novel
A Christmas sock monkey (I named him Nick!)
Some relaxation tea and two Christmas mugs
star garland
a festive reversible vest!!
holiday tattoos and some stickers
some really cute candles shaped like holiday things
and some heatable comfort stockings
some puppy stockings

And, get this!! I got the coolest and most original stocking of all!!!  Its made of gourds!!!  And its in my favorite colors pink brown and white!!!

Here is Nick up close, I'm going to cuddle up with him and drink my tea and read my book so I won't miss Kev so much tonight!!

Here is one side of the vest

And the other

The folded paper star garland (these are the coolest!! I need to figure out how to make these!!)

And, last of all, my puppies personal favorites.  All three of them got their own individual stockings that look just alike filled with some treats that have to be doggy crack!!  They love them more than I have ever seen them love any other treat!!

I ripped my package open before I even went to sleep when I got home at 1:30 am last night from my 8 hour drive and I have to say it was AMAZING.    I'll post pictures the second I get the chance but MAN.  I'm in awe.
