We're only 18 Days from Christmas!

I have a little secret... this is a scheduled post. I'm on the road today to see one of my very best friends! Some of you actually know her IRL. 

However, I'm continuing with my co-hosting duties of Star's 25 Days to Christmas! Today's topic is the Best Gift You've Received

It took me a long time to figure this one out. Like, I literally sat and stared at my computer screen for a good 15 minutes, racking my brain trying to figure it out. Then finally it dawned on me... my 1988 Dixie Diner Toy Set. 
I played with this set for hours and hours as a kid. I can remember lugging this thing every where. It was one of my favorite toys from my childhood. I still have it and it's in my closet! 

I know a lot of people are going to think why this toy? Well because it was fun and it brought me a lot of happiness as a child, so why not?!

What's been your favorite gift?

I think the best gifts are the ones that make you happy too! I remember as a little girl, I always looked forward to opening gifts, because they were always toys and dolls! Have a great day!

my favorite Christmas gift as a kid was a homemade dollhouse our older sister made us. She wasn't always such a jerk LOL

Where is this secret road trip taking you?! That's so fun you'll get to see a good friend. Enjoy your time together.

Best gift I ever got was a Sega Genisis. (Come on, it was the coolest!) My mom didn't like video games and for years had said no to a Nintendo. But when I was 11 years old, she surprised my brother and I will the best gift ever!!!

SO cute!!! What was my favorite toy... hmmm.. I think it was a snoopy dog that my grandma (now passed away) got me for my first birthday. I didnt care much about it then, but as I got older, I understood that it was my very first Christmas present and that meant something... I love me that little Snoopy dog!! :)

Great answer! I love it! I still have some of my favorite toys from when I was kid. Mainly my collection of Barbies. I don't know why, but I can't seem to let them go...

Hmmm, my favorite present ever? I think it was the barbie house my dad found at a garage sale. It was so awesome because it wasn't like any of my friends houses! hehe

That's a hard one...I can't even think of the best gift I've received for Christmas. Maybe my coat that I've had for 3 years and love love love.

I got a cell phone when I was about 15... And my parents had it ring inside the package. I was pretty stoked :) Other than that I did really love my Barbie RV!
