My parents got me a washer & dryer for my house a few months ago and said they were my Christmas gifts… but then they went on to get me the iPhone 4s, a very pretty necklace/earrings set, a publix gift card, a starbucks gift card, some cash, and some camis.  They were super generous!!  My SO got me a Kindle Fire, which I LOVE.  My brother gave me Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 on dvd and HP7.2.  My godparents gave me money, and judge (my boss) gave me a personalized leather pocket calendar with personalized stationary to go in it. My co-worker got me a chocolate treat tower thing from Harry & David, and it’s killing my diet. haha.  Overall, it was a great Christmas!

I got spoiled this year by the SO and family so I won’t get into everything, but some of the things I got this year that I was really hoping for was a white Guess watch, the Rihanna Reb’l Fleur perfume set and the Michael Kors Hamilton large tote I’ve been eyeing for awhile. Hope everyone else had an amazing Christmas!!!

I had a great Christmas! My husband got me a diamond necklace which was a total shock and I looooove it. I never wear necklaces because I like dainty “classic” type ones and all I have really is cheap trendy ones. So he got me this and said he wanted to make our first married Christmas special. So sweet 🙂 (Its a 1/3ct cushion cut)

(please excuse the pj pants I was modeling it on lol)

My parents’ main gift for us is that they’re renting a beach house for us all next summer, but they still got me some cut clothes and cooking stuff (like hilarious ninja gingerbread man cookie cutters). 

And my brother/sil got me lenses that snap onto my iphone! Looove them, they are so hilarious.

I was spoiled this year…

Darling Husband: Cricut Expression 2 cutter and an iPad 2 upgrade (I had the first gen)

My mom: The rest of our dishes that weren’t purchased off our registry, duvet set, lots of clothes, jewelry, boots and various kitchenware

My extended family: An AMAZING professionally framed (like from an art studio) collagey type of thing with all of our wedding stationary (once its hung I’ll post a pic because I love it so much), Coach bag and wallet, gift cards, another professionally framed picture of the table from my bridal shower (which is equally as amazing), some clothes, various registry items, jewelry, tickets for a winter train ride (new popular attraction that just came to our area), among other things.

DH’s side: Fancy sheets that I’m madly in love with, gift card, cash, personalized Lenox wedding ornament and framed pictures of our niece.

Christmas tends to be a big event in my family.

I’m skipping most of what I got – and just saying my best one (the rest were cash for our new tv, or random things in-laws got me that are mostly getting returned because we don’t need/want/won’t fit)

I got Darling Husband new warm socks that he’s been asking for, as well as a watch. 

He got me…….tickets to the Talladega NASCAR race in May! I’ve wanted to go to that track since I was probably 14! Best gift I’ve ever gotten. We haven’t technically bought tickets yet as he wanted to let me pick where to sit, but we’re going to make a week trip out of it and make some stops along the way. 

It definitely beats the socks, lol!

  • Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat

I got last semester’s tuition paid by my Future Mother-In-Law, as well as a weekend trip that she paid for all of us “kids” to go on. As actual Christmas gifts that get unwrapped, she gave me a seahorse windchime from her trip to Mexico, some bath salts, and an ornament. I wasn’t counting on getting anything after all the money she shelled out this year for us.

My Dad and stepmom gave us a $75 gift card

My Mom gave me a handmade christmas wall hanging and useful things (silicone brush, coffee, tea, etc..

Our friends gave us a martini shaker and cocktail book

Fiance gave me a schmancy new coffee maker (writers need them!) and some art for the house

Future Brother-In-Law gave me a nice new set of knives

Sister gave me a few things from her Guatemala trip– a table runner, etc.. as well as preserves and other goodies she made. I really like that I have a table runner from Guatemala and a painting from Australia (also from her) both in the living room.
