Valentine's Day Swap

I love swaps!  They can really be a lot of fun.  I decided to join a Valentine Swap because I'm sick of never actually having a Valentine and watching everyone else get stuff, while I get nothing.  It's happened year after year after year, so I usually take Valentine's Day off work just so I can avoid the awkwardness and uncomfortableness.  It's not that I've never had a boyfriend, I've just never seemed to have one on Valentine's Day.  This year, I decided that I either needed to buy my own Valentine present, or join a swap.  Participating in a swap seemed to be the less pathetic choice, so that's what I went with.

I got partnered up with the host, Kristin, after apparently signing up too late, and she was kind enough to take pity on me and allow me to still join in the fun.

Here's what I got:  
A beautiful scarf, which is the backdrop for this picture, Starbs hot cocoa, coffee cup, Carmex lip moisturizer, a bag full of chocolates, and a card.  
Cute cup!  There's actually 2 packets of cocoa, the other one was stuffed in the cup still when I took this picture.  You can kind of see the decorative paper sticking out.  
One can never go wrong with chocolates!  I'm proud to say that I still have most of the bag left.  Normally, I inhale chocolate like there's no tomorrow, but I've vowed to save this and make it last.   
Now if I just had a guy to kiss, this would be perfect!  That's OK, I'm still gonna enjoy it!  And my lips will be nice and soft when the right guy does come around!   
One of the rules for this swap was that you were supposed to make your own card.  So I had to laugh that the host sent me a store-bought one!   
Here's a closer look at the scarf.
