Secret Santa Revealed! #jcpSecretSanta

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 3:46 PM
Remember last week I told you how I teamed up with jcpenny and Mom Central for this fun Secret Santa gift Exchange? If not, then get up to speed by reading my post here.
Each year offices participate in their annual Secret Santa but being a stay at home mom I don't get to participate in anything like that so I was so thrilled to be apart of something this fun.

Now I'm not one for surprises or the anticipation of something happening so it was hard for me not to spill the beans through-out this little adventure.

So last week I went shopping on jcpenny to pick out a gift for a fellow blogger. I didn't get to pick who the blogger was and the person that was my Secret Santa didn't get to pick me so everyone was in the dark about who got who.

After looking around a bit I finally decided on what I thought would be the perfect gift! I recorded my message to said blogger and sent her gift away!

So what about my Secret Santa? Well that's the exciting part!

I have been on the edge of my seat for the past week waiting to see who my Secret Santa was and what they got for me and today FedEx showed up with a gorgeous box with my name all over it! the first thing I did was scan the QR code so I could find out who sent me this wonderful gift.
Of course if you are going to participate you will need a smart phone and the ability to download a QR Code reader app. Once my app was installed it scanned the barcode then automatically opened up a browser window. I was instructed to press play and then I heard the message from my Secret Santa!! I started laughing and was so happy with who my Santa was. I couldn't believe the pure luck of the draw...

So what did she get me? It was gorgeous and fits perfectly - Bisou Bisou One Shoulder dress I can't wait to wear it out on a date night with the husband or at one of those fab BlogHer parties next year!! Now I'm not all dressed up and photo ready so I won't show you how it looks on me right now but you can just image this is me in the picture, ok? :)
There is still time to take part in the Secret Santa gifting. Santa Tags are available at all jcpenney locations at JCP services (where you would find gift boxes). Anyone who purchased a gift at jpenney anytime after 11/15/11 is eligible to receive a Santa Tag for free (just show your receipt).

Oh yeah.. Who's my Secret Santa??

I hope jcpenny continues this because next year I definitely want to do this again for my friends who live out of state!

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of jcpenney and received a jcpenney Secret Santa gift and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

yes you did. But now I cant gain any weight because wow that baby is tight. haha. It's definitely one of those 'can't move your legs fully when you walk' type dresses. I can't wait to rock it at BlogHer12 or maybe if us girls ever go out to a fancy dinner!

Jennifer on January 8, 2012 at 12:47 PM said...
