Christmas Gifts Galore


December 28, 2011

This little elf must have been very good this year as I think I was a bit spoiled by my family with fun holiday presents and gifts…or maybe they were just saying farewell to “my” holiday since I have a feeling next year all the attention will be focused on our new little one–and no, I don’t mind one bit. My dad always jokes that it’ll be sweater time and that will be the only gift I get, but I think I am getting the best gift of all come March ;). Here are some of the fabulous gifts Santa delivered under our tree this year:

 David Yurman Buckle Bangle
Michael Kors Hamilton Purse
Sperry Leopard Flats
 Gold Initial Love Necklace
 Jane Marvel Carry-On and Cosmetic Bags in Python

Tory Burch Logo Ella Tote
Now can you see why Mom appropriately named my Christmas presents “the year of the bag”? I couldn’t ask for clothes and bags are the very next best thing…yes I am a bag lady! I also received some new moccasin houseshoes, a new robe perfect for lounging, new shades of Essie nail polish, a personalized LL Bean canvas beach bag, the 21 album from Adele, a gorgeous crystal beaded necklace, and money to put towards a new laptop, which I cannot wait to get!

Since we came home with some fabulous new goodies, I took the rest of my holiday to get my booty in gear and spend the afternoon clearing out the clutter. I think I have officially started the “nesting” phase of pregnancy and I wanted all the unnecessary gone…I went through each and every drawer in our bedroom and closet, then tackled the upstairs storage, and managed to come up with another 4 bags for the hubby to cart off to Goodwill. Afterall, now is the time when people less fortunate really need those extra coats and winter necessities so many of us have lying around not being used. It feels so good to give back and I hope you’ll do the same!

What were some of your favorite gifts this year??

    oooo!! what fun stuff! I thoroughly enjoyed nesting! I was on a mission to clean and prep for baby the last 2-3 months with both pregnancies. My hubby knew it was nesting time! 🙂 When are you due?

    Isn't great to give back? I always get so happy when the salvation army comes to pick up our old furniture, clothes, baby stuff, etc. I get rid of clutter and give back! Double bonus!! haha

    I got that EXACT same bracelet from William last year and I love it!!! (But be careful about the hook because it can catch on things and snag sweaters!) And I LOVEEE that initial necklace – so adorable!!!
