I know Lindsey was blessed with a this Christmas (congrats again girlie ) But what did bring you?

DH got me a GPS, which sadly I need even though I've lived here since I was 8 and SHOULD know my way around

My ILs got me a gift care to BRU and a couple of sleepers, some socks, and no scratch mittens for Marleigh & Ally.

My BIL (who was my Secret Santa) gave me $30 cash, so I spent that at Once Upon A Child today

My parents gave me $$ for a small chest freezer because I want to start doing once a month cooking They also bought Marleigh some books about adoption

I wasn't planning on spending any time with my mom because she and I have NOT been getting along at all, but considering that her dad died three days ago, it only made sense that I would overlook our differences and spend time together during the holidays

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas Looking forward to seeing a ton of s around here in 2011

I got AF.

From relatives I got a new vaccuum, ornaments for the tree, a few odds and ends, and giftcards.

DH and I didn't exchange gifts, we did a huge exterior makeover of the house recently and bought new front/back doors to go with the new brick, so we kinda used those as our gift.

Brandi~the only positive about getting AF for x'mas is I'm hoping your magical recipe works for me!!

DH and I got new wedding rings, we bought one for each other, because mine broke and I lost the diamond out of it =(

My grandparents and Father-in-law gave me money which will most likely be spent on books for school. My aunt gave me super warm boots, a comfy robe and some other clothes. I got a nice bath set from my brother's girlfriend and my Mom is getting me an e-reader. DH's mom gave us a bag FULL of goodies, it's our "Movie Night" with a DVD, lots of candies, cookies, and hot chocolate with mugs.

DH got me a pair of earrings from Tiffany that I have been DYING for and a new coat. Love them!!! He is the best.
Parents gave us money to help pay off our washer/dryer/furniture (we moved into a new house this year).
In-laws gave me some clothes (which I am grateful for but are totally not my style and don't fit, so I'll be exchanging them...shhhhhh!)
I also got a bunch of Dunkin Donuts gift cards from various friends - my fave gift since I am obsessed with their coffee!!

@Holly- I love your gift!

Got a lot of nice stuff but my 3 favorites were:

From DH - I got an IPAD!!

From Mom - $$

From my good friend - I got a running bracelet, that I love. I don't have to carry my id or insurance card when I run anymore cuz this bracelt has a # that an EMT can call to get all my info! I LOVE IT!

OH and I have to mention that DH made me Ameretto Honey. (we went to Miami over the summer and found some and it is YUMMY, well we can't find it in Texas and shipping is expensive...more than cost of hunny!)

working on my 3rd, for sure by 11/15/11
