Ahhh I just got a new laptop a few days ago.. isn’t 7 pretty cool? (kinda like a rip off of vista and mac combined, lol)

I got: Necklace and bracelet from the future ILs, wacom tablet and coach bag from Fiance, shirts, money, costume jewelry and other little stuff from my parents, wallet and duck slippers (OMG YESSSS) from my sister and a Barefoot Contessa cookbook from Future Brother-In-Law and his gf! So… overall I’m excited, not to mention I got my laptop this week so really, it’s just a win-win situation!

Aw, I love playing with new laptops ๐Ÿ™‚ FH and I went into the Apple store earlier this week and I *almost* thought I’d be getting a new one. But I do love mine so much.

I got a bracelet and watch set from mom, a new case for my iphone from my sister, tickets to see Cirque du Soleil with FH (which I’ve known about for a while yet), 2 Momiji dolls from me and FH respectively (yes, I gave myself a gift) and a Momiji snowglobe from mum (I’m a bit of a collector). Oh, and some cash from Future Mother-In-Law. Future Sister-In-Law and her family are giving out family gifts tomorrow so that’ll be fun. 

More than anything the thought behind the gifts this year made me really happy and a bit teary. It’s all stuff I like or wanted without having to give hints.

You guys got such great gifts!! I got cash from most of my family bc they know my Fiance and I are paying for the wedding ourselves and they know we have been very responsible when it comes to saving money for it. My Fiance got me a few pairs of shoes, some jewlery and some pj pants ( i love victoria’s secrets pj pants). The best gift we got though was my FI’s mom and stepdad gave us $4,000 for the wedding because they said they were so proud of how much my Fiance had been saving, He makes really good money and use to spend it like CRAZY and he is working really hard on that, not where he needs to be yet but still doing really good. 

Yay bees, I love the holidays and I am glad you bees are enjoying yours. The holidays make my heart swell =)

What very nice gifts ladies, all of you are very blessed. Mr. M and I decided on not doing gifts this year since I just quit my job and the company I will be working for is not quite up and running just yet. Not to mention we are also paying for our own party (in lieu of wedding, although not much cheaper) and honeymoon which is only 5 months away now. All of that being said, I was shocked when Mr. M brought in a box last night wrapped and finished with a bow and placed it under our tree. I was beside myself with guilt since I had not gotten him anything and had absolutely no idea what this present could be.

I opened my box and to my surprise I found a pair of pink and brown riding boots. Mr. M knows I have always wanted a horse and I have been doing a lot of riding lately. It was such an unexpected & thoughtful gift. All I am missing now is a matching horse!!! She may be a year or so away but I know Mr. M will make sure she is mine as he has done for the last 2 yrs with everything else.

So, as much as we may appreciate the monetary, tangible, unexpected and thoughtful gifts this year, remember that Christmas is a time to be thankful for all you have and giving to those who do not have.

I can honestly say I am grateful to God every day for bringing in to my life not only what I wanted but more what I needed in this delicious 6’2” package who loves me inspite of all of my short comings and I simply wish the same for everyone this holiday season.

I got a lot of nice things this year but my favorites would have to be an onyx heart necklace and antique musical jewelry box from my boyfriend and a camera and peruvian flute from my dad.

As spoiled as he makes me every year, he got me a stocking full of thoughtful little gifts like: hand sanatizer, tealight candles, scrunchies..etc, a pedicure bath (which he set up for me and filled up with warm water so i could soak in the massage water), jewelry armoire (so beautiful), home decors and he cleaned the whole house and did all the laundry! Im so excited to marry the man of my dreams, he makes Xmas so special every year! Happy Holidays Bees!

Lets see, from Future Mother-In-Law I got some snow boots and a pretty red scarf.  From my mom I got some pjs, slippers, a North Face Fleece, and a purple iPod Nano.  From Fiance I got an iPod docking station, a few books, The Fame Monster CD and Glee Volume 1 CD, and an ice tea maker.  We also got some couple gifts.  It was a great year. ๐Ÿ™‚  It was also great because all the gifts I gave everyone loved.  That makes me super happy.  I definitely feel blessed and thankful for everything.

Bwah ha ha… my parents apparently decided that shopping was the best way to cure the fact that I hadn’t been home in 2 months. But you know… I would have traded it all to have Mr. KM here with me… sad.
