I LOVE Presents!

I love Christmas for the real meaning of it all but I'm not going to lie. . . I love it for the presents too!  I love giving presents to my family members and I love getting them in return!  Today I'm linking up with  The Vintage Apple and Flip Flops and Pearls for "My Favorite Gift From Santa."  Although I'm not picking just one. . . here are several of my faves!

My aunt bought me this cheese plate on the Cape this summer.  Randomly one day I got a text asking me my favorite flower.  I thought she had sent the text to the wrong person so clarified and indeed it was meant for me.  Didn't even know it at the time but I made it so easy for her considering hydrangeas are everywhere on the Cape!  Love my plate!!
My parents got me this great Silpada necklace.  My mom actually bought it after I mentioned I liked it at the MS Challenge Walk back in Sept.  I didn't even remember it but luckily I still like it!
My aunt bought me this beautiful scarf in Barcelona on one of her many adventures.  I love the color and look forward to wearing it to work!
My parents got me this and I'm thankful b/c I REALLY needed a new can opener (my hand is very appreciative of this gift).
My aunt is very hip and got me this gift.  I hadn't even heard of it prior to Christmas but now that I have one everyone is talking about the Clarisonic!  So far I love it and hope it helps my skin!
I can't wait to go shopping.  My sister-in-law and the family I babysit both got me giftcards to lululemon and I can't wait to buy some yoga pants! 
My parents got me this Vera Bradley bag.  I actually don't own any Vera Bradley bags so this is a nice addition to my bag collection.  Another thing that I mentioned MONTHS ago and my mom remembered and got it for me! 
I'm also appreciative of the "green paper" gifts I got from my grandparents and parents.  I look forward to shopping as soon as I'm back on my feet.  Top of the list is an Oral B toothbrush (boring but necessary) and of course I'm sure I'll find some new clothes that I HAVE.TO.HAVE!

Christmas was so much fun and I love all my new stuff!  Thanks everyone!!


  1. Santa was good to you! I like your pressies! Love the scarf! My friend gave me one she bought from France and I soooo, soooo, adore it!

    Did you change your blog template? It's so festive! I like it.

  2. I'd LOVE some lululemon, but it's so expensive. Thank goodness for giftcards! They're perfect to buy things you wouldn't otherwise buy for yourself. :)
