Favorite Things: Book Club

So I have been slacking in the posting department. Things have been crazy busy around these parts. I've been going through pictures and last month my Book Club took a trip to Vegas, and I was going to post those today...but then realized I haven't posted pictures from our December meeting. (Yeah like I said I'm a little behind.)

For our December Book Club we decided to have a favorite things party in lieu of exchanging gifts for Christmas. It was so much fun. We each brought enough gifts for everyone and I think it's safe to say that we all went home very happy ladies. ( Oh yeah and our book for the month was The Great Gatsby. We really do read and talk about the book---even if it's only for 5 minutes)

My awesome friend Meagan hosted and it was perfect. Her house is always decorated crazy cute for Christmas. She is such a good hostess!

This picture makes me want hot chocolate so bad right now!

Because there were 10 of us there and we wanted to give to everyone we set the limit a little lower to $5 for each gift. Here's what we all brought:

Me: Handmade bracelets out of washers and leather (instructions found here) and a shopping list pad.
Meagan: Chevron socks and glitter nail polish
Brittney: Handmade scarves and homemade yarn bookmarks.
Nichole: Personally designed prints and earrings
Jeanette: Adorable snowflake mugs
Jenn: Candy Cane Kisses and handmade Christmas Tree Ornaments
Cheryl: Brookside Dark Chocolate Goji Raspberry
Dari: Mexican Vanilla, Nail polish and Crystal Light
Whitney: Bath & Body Works Candy Cane Soap, Crystal Light & Sugar Free Candy
Alicia: Homemade vanilla and recipes.

It really was a splendid night. I certainly love these ladies. Thanks for hosting Meg! And sorry it took me so long to post these pictures...

Have you had a favorite things party? I'm kinda obsessed with them.
