Hello! Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I can't believe how fast 2008 went by.
My holidays were awesome! We got a lot of great stuff for Christmas. Thank you to everyone. Here's a rundown of what we got, if anyone cares.
*From my SIL and the nieces: a super cute Cookie Lee necklace and some homemade ornaments from the girls.
* From MIL: A Shark Steam Mop! Awesome! Cute sweater, gift cards and lots of awesome things in our stockings like usual. Also she got the kids, I mean dogs, some stuff too! She got Lily some shirts and both of them some chew toys.
*From FIL: Home Depot & Olive Garden Gift Cards
*From Judy (family friend): Gift cards, got the dogs a toy, some kitchen towels that we needed badly, and a magic bullet blender thingy.
*From my Dad: Gift cards are the name of the game here people! It's what we asked for. My dad got us Home Depot gift cards plus some movie tickets.
*From my brother: Forever 21 GC!
*From my Mom: a movie gift basket. Stocked with A Christmas Story popcorn tin, candy, Blockbuster GC, etc.
*From Hubs: MAC holiday Red She Said eyeshadow palette see my makeup blog for details on that! And also the holiday brush set.
*From me to the hubs: Since I'm broke and can't afford to get him what he really wants (which is a longboard skateboard), I found a skateboard shelf from this Etsy seller. We ended up putting it in the office underneath a picture of his deceased best friend Kenny. Kenny was an awesome skateboarder, and was even sponsered by Cowtown at one point. The picture we have blown up of him is a picture of him skateboarding.
Again, thank you to everyone for the wonderful Christmas, and wonderful gifts.
We used our Chase GC's to buy some stuff to finally put on our bare walls! We went to one of our favorite home shopping stores, Homes Goods where we bought our wall art. We purchased some canvas art and a litle wooden sign that says the ever so popular "Live, Laugh, Love" on it from Home Goods. Then We purchased a set of 3 smalls shelves and some candles at Target. Doesn't it look so much better with stuff on the walls?
With our Home Depot GC's, we purchased the supplies needed to renovate our laundry room! We're currently working on that, so pics to come when we finish. We're going for a light fresh kitchy feeling. We painted stripes on the walls with a grey/blue color, and we're adding wainscotting, new trim, and I'll be taking my first stab and painting the gawd awfully ugly cabinets (that match my gawd awfully ugly kitchen cabnits and my gawd awfully ugly master bathroom and vanity cabinets) white.
