The Gifts, The Gifts

We all know the fun part of the holidays is receiving gifts and seeing the faces when we give them.  And for me it is a double whammy as I only get gifts one day a year.  

My parents got me this pretty blue topaz bangle for my birthday.  The stones are a really light color.  

There is no doubt that S knows me well.  She picked up the Bears cup at Soldier Field when she went to Chicago in the fall.  

According to S, Beth has me ready for a night on the town with her two gifts.

S got me this great bag to pack stuff in for picnics.  

Santa still comes to visit my brother and me.  I got the Waterford flute for Christmas this year.  I should have known something was up since it wasn't my birthday present.  I am still not sure where I will put the Ole Miss rug.

I got myself this pretty for a combined Christmas and birthday gift.

Not really a gift but a must as my previous flat iron died at the beginning of the month.  

I also got a few books and little things.  

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and Santa was good to everyone.


  1. Santa was good to you! The whole birthday-at-christmas thing really stinks, especially when you're younger. I feel like we could share lots of stories about that! I love those flutes!
