  I got some really awesome presents! My dad gave me a paper shredder, which I was beyond excited for…it makes me feel old, that I’m excited for that :-). My mom gave me a new Coach purse and a Waterford ring holder (amongst some other things). The ring holder was really sentimental, because her mom gave each of her daughters one when they got engaged, so now I got one, too :-).

  My Fiance gave me some excellent presents! Palabra (a really fun word game), a pair of  VS Pink sweatpants from the college we attended, a KitchenAid stand mixer (I’m still drooling over it!), and he made me this game called Close the Box. He worked so hard on it, and it turned out excellent! His parents gave me a sweet portable DVD player. I’m luckier than anyone should be!

From hubs, a necklace from Tiffany to match earrings that he had given me a couple of Christmases ago.  Then today I accidentally saw another “blue box” in his dresser drawer…can’t wait for my birthday in a couple of months!!! πŸ™‚

 

Best true gift–FI’s brother got engaged so I’ll have a new, fabulous, wonderful, awesome sister-in-law!

@nut9108: my brother also got the nano, and i guess he didnt realise how small it was when he asked for it, lol, cause he opened it and was like how the hell do i use this, after almost dying of laughter, i told him its a touch screen, and now hes thrilled about the gift πŸ˜›

It sounds like everyone had a great/fun Christmas!

My favorite presents are our new couch and loveseat from my parents & FI’s grandparents! They should be here in about 4 weeks, and I can’t wait!

My other favorite present is new flooring throughout the hosue from my Fiance πŸ™‚  & I’m kinda excited about the chest freezer his parents got us for the garage, even if it does sound dorky!

My favorite gifts were the crystal heart necklace from my new mom and dad in-laws, and a gorgeous porcelain Christmas ornament from a couple of our friends. It’s a bell shaped like a wedding cake with the words “Our first Christmas 2010”, and the bell dingly thing is two golden wedding bands looped together.

My SO volunteering to give up his seat on the overbooked flight, after Christmas, and getting to fly out after NYE, a voucher for more then he paid for his ticket and a first class upgrade.  I had bi***ed and moaned at him for our poor planning and him not staying the week, he on the other hand had kept saying, as usual….. don’t worry about it, things always work out for the best!!!

Oh and presents he bought me, my right hand ring being my favorite, and the fact that his mom sent me presents.  I wouldn’t have cared if it was a freakin candy cane, it’s just nice to be thought of.

Well we were supposed to go see my family in Italy for the holidays – but we had to cancel because I got sick and the doctor told me I should not be flying. So we decided instead to drive to his family in Belgium – but we had to cancel because of a snow storm which blocked us.

We ended up spending Christmas day just the two of us, opening our presents under our Christmas tree. It was very romantic and cosy, even if I was sad we were not with our families it was so special to be just the two of us.

Favorite present? A Chai Latte tea mix with a wonderful mug to go with it!

Mr. Jones got me these amazing boots (he has great taste!)

 

 

Of course, being with my family on Christmas Eve was amazing and then Mr. Jones’ family on Christmas was awesome πŸ™‚
