I know, I know, Christmas is supposed to be about holiday cheer and festivities, giving and such. But alas, I take just a few moments to rejoice in the glitter and goodies and . . . the loot. Who doesn’t love the perk of a lil loot? Oh, and cheese. I honestly don’t much care what I get, though getting what you like is certainly always a plus. I love surprising others. And, I confess, I’m a horrible “this is great” present liar. I wish it could come across my face as more genuine, I dearly do. But not so much.
I have to say though, I have one of the bestest families a girl could ever ask for. My pops is pretty good at following a list and we have no pretense about surprising, we just care that it’s useful. We’re very logical and practical that way. It’s kind of nice. My mom and I on the other hand, are stupendous at the little things in life . . . For example: I gave her a bag of twizzlers, she gave me caramels. I gave her a b&n gift card, she gave me itunes. I gave her new goodies for her computer, she gave me new goodies for baking. Oh sure yeah, there’s been big items before, but I treasure the little ones just as much if not more. I smile when I see them and can move them around as I see fit. It’s always a fun time!
Here are some of my favs this year . . .
Glitter Hope bird (he has a partner, handmade milk chocolate raisins from Spicer’s, $25 Michael’s gift card (yay art supplies!), itunes gift pack (hello new tunes)
Silicone baking cups. My mom got me a set of neon ones last year, but I haven’t used them yet because they were pretty and weren’t quite enough to warrant a whole round of baking. Now we have new goodness ripe for baking!
And with that, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with goodness. I hope more goodies were given than coal and I hope Santa brought you everything you wished for.
From my Boo to yours!
