Haven’t gotten gifts from FI yet as we’re long distance right now, but got some much appreciated cash from my grandparents and uncle.  My big gift from my parents this year was covering the cost to get my brakes done last week, yay for big girl gifts!  I also got some pajamas, a robe, a SF Giants shirt, and lots of candy in my stocking. Oh, and a gift card to get my nails done :)

FI got me a new ring, but it was too small, so we’ll be going in together to pick another. He also named a star after me, winning gift giving forever. I also got an autographed hard copy of Brom’s Krampus, as well as a new outfit and gloves from FILs. My mom sent us a check for the wedding fund, so did my grandmother, and my dad, his girlfriend, and my brother are planning to come and visit in Jan. :)

I got a gorgeous morganite ring from Dh.  I’d post a pic if I could ever figure out how.  Also from Dh were slippers and gloves (we’re having a cold winter here for us) and a ton of chocolate which is very slick of him.

He’s a chocaholic and well aware I’ll be back on my strict diet tomorrow so he’ll actually get to eat nearly all of it.

I also got some PJs that are too big. Unless I eat all the chocolate, then that won’t be an issue anymore.

It seemed that it was going to be a really light Christmas this year.  FI and I figured NO presents b/c of the wedding and all.  My adult family circulated an email saying the adults shouldn’t do gifts this year since we’re all saving for the wedding and as adults who needs presents anyway?  I was like uhh…I’m an adult and I think all people can use a loving gift now and then so I wasn’t super stoked but totally understanding.

But they got us

*2 boxes of Sherries Berries chocolate covered strawberries (one from FI’s dad, one from my cousins)

*Cash from my aunt, my guardian, and my mom.

*Cat novelties from my aunt.

*A large Zebra print Canvass picture (really large), a Seattle Troll Chia Pet, a Cricut die cutting machine from FI.

*FI and I took the money from my mom (as instructed) and went to Fred Meyer and did a little shopping spree.  We both got new jammies, toiletries, fuzzy socks, I got a new chain for my pendant, and a screwdriver set (I really have been wanting one), FI got a new jacket and something for his computer.

*We also went to a supppper fancy italian dinner and then went to a jazz Christmas show with our good friends. 

 

TBH the best Christmas present of all, FI and I cleaned our room together last night.  Made our bed this morning.  And plan to get on track with Flylady.  As he was vaccumming I was just in heaven :)

 

Not a light Christmas at all!
