Ack, I'm sorry for the delay in posting, but it's that time of year and I've been super busy with Christmas parties and stuff (none of which I remembered to take photographs at). I hope everyone had an excellent holiday! I'm super curious to see what everyone got, but first I'll show off what I got as well. On the Sunday before Christmas the bf and I went to his mom's house for early Christmas, as she will be gone during actual Christmas. It was a really fun and relaxing time. Ate lots of food, watched some movies and, as you can guess from the title of this post, exchanged gifts. The bf and I got her a Slap Chop, which she seemed to really like (she loves to cook). She got me a really awesome present of two delicious-smelling hand soaps from Bath & Body Works, some Black Velvet Apricot body butter from the Body Shop and a gift card for Browns (one of my favourite shoe stores)! Her fiance (who lives out of town) got me these adorable Christmas chocolates. They are so cute I almost don't want to eat them!
I spent Christmas Eve with the bf (since it's his birthday), then on Christmas we seperated to visit each of our families. This year was extra-exciting, since my brother and sister-in-law came out with their four kids. Kids always make Christmas more fun! I didn't end up finishing all the pajamas, but I guess they will have to be Easter presents! I was very lucky this year and got spoiled with presents. From the bf, I got a t-shirt, a super-long black scarf and a pair of green mittens (I won't lie, I picked them all out since he didn't know what to get). From my brother I got a fancy sewing organizer and a rotary cutter, which works really well and I'm a little scared of cutting myself on since it is really sharp. From my other brother and my sister-in-law I got money (which got spent on boxing day) and a gift card to go to the movies. From my parents I got a mat to go with my rotary cutter, a scarf, gloves, mango shower gel (my favourite), a new go-cup (since my dad stole my old one) and money (which I also spent on boxing day). From my aunt, uncle and cousins I got a re-usable shopping bag and a really pretty pair of earrings that were made by my aunt's friend Joan Irvin. Add to this some other gift certificates the bf and I got from some friends and I most definately got spoilt!
I'll show off my boxing day purchases tomarrow. I also went shopping at a different mall with my mom today and bought even more! I am definately broke now, but some of the stuff was very practical (oh dear, now I'm making excuses). I guess I'm a sale-aholic...
What did everyone else get?
