A special gift? A special visit? A nap?

Nothing. I didn't even get my ice scraper or oil change......

Oh wait, my son and his gf gave me a nice wallet and a soft blanket.

Rob got me some really nice things, my favorite has to be the Keurig machine. I just ordered some of those refilable filters so that we don't have to spend so much on the cups.

I got some pretty turquoise boots, and a really nice new blender. I got a bunch of neat things between the kids and my MIL. My MIL got me a book about cutting back (money wise) on your grocery trips, it's super cute so I am hoping to sit down tonight and start reading it.

Here's a link to the book..

IL's gave me cash so I went out and bought new clothes

Dh gave me three gift cards (I LOVE gift cards!!), so I will do some boxing week shopping tomorrow-I want a big fluffy housecoat, some scanties and tops

He got me a box of Ralph Lauren perfumes, very cool!

Got me something to read-a large print Readers Digest-top stories of 2012--I know I'm 39 but really, large print???

I got spoiled, it was great!

Oh and I got to squeeze in four naps over the last three days!

My mom and dad gave me $$.

Julia picked my gift, and with a little help from her dad she picked earrings I really like.
Dh got me a blender. Now that doesn't sound very romantic, but we weren't doing gifts for each other, but I like that he went and found something he knew I wanted. And I HATE when he spends a lot on me, it makes me feel bad, so I appreciate the thought.

A rolex??? wowsers. That would so not go over well with me

I'm kinda bad with gifts, I do like receiving a big gift every so often, but if it happens too much I kinda start thinking about what I would have bought if money was going to be spent on me.

I really like the heating blanket I got from my mother. Very cozy

My oldest DD also drew me a sweet picture and I love how proud she was of herself.

From hubby and kids I got a ton of clothes, 5 body washes(I love the nice smelling ones but won't spend it on myself) and brown dress-type boots.

From the family gift exchange I got a gray and neon green sweater dress, leggings, earrings and bracelet to match from my sil.

Dh got me: two pair of Dansko shoes (which I had to exchange because they were the wrong size), a 175.00 purse that we got on sale for $40, new glasses for the kitchen, some fuzzy gloves that have the finger thingys for iphone usage, a gift card, and a vera bradley laptop case.

He went overboard since we weren't really doing anything for each other. All I got him were some shirts and a Washington College DAD sweatshirt. I hate when he does that, he makes me feel bad.

I got DH some snow boots (the first pair I think he's had in the 10 years we've been together lol) new work shoes, socks, ear buds, a nintendo and all 3 mario games, and an air hammer.

In return he got me a Keurig machine, a food processor, k-cups, a purse, wooden spoons, a broom (I asked for it), wine glasses, and a belt with no metal on it so I don't break out.

I figured I'd add my whole list since everyone else did

I got totally spoiled this year! DH took the kids shopping and bought me a Christmas countdown, MIL also took the oldest 2 to do their own shopping and Alyssa bought me a hat and Rylan bought me hair things. DH bought me tri-gold earrings to match the bracelet he gave me last year, and a gorgeous family ring! MIL gave me pj's and a stand mixer, my grandparents and aunts and uncles gave me lots of clothes, a calendar, wall hanging, frame, scrapbooking book, and an organizer. My parents gave me an overnight bag full of bath stuff/cosmetics (even a pregnancy test! Lol), a serger, airbrush cake sprayer for my cake decorating, and interchangeable knitting needles!
