Secret Pal!

In my office we do a fun activity throughout the year called "secret pal". At the beginning of each year, whoever would like to participate fills out a questionnaire about their likes and dislikes. After all the participants complete the form, they are placed in a basket and each person draws a name. Noone knows who got who, hence the name "secret pal".

Throughout the year, you are supposed to give small gifts letting that person know they are appreciated and thought of. At the end of year, usually around Christmas time we have a big party and there is a big reveal where you find out who had your name for the year. I've done it the last couple years and its always a fun thing, finding thoughtful gifts for the person I have and every once in awhile receiving little treats from the person who has my name!

Today, I received this cute beanie baby bear and a small bouquet of carnations for easter! Its the cutest little bear and my favorite color, pink!
