Holiday bliss

Although a small part of me is saddened by the passing of the holidays, most of me is happy they are done with. I was quite stressed this Christmas, with the little pup and all, plus cooking and baking. I did practically nothing yesterday, aside from play with my new toys, and plan to do the same today!

I had a wonderful Christmas. The presents that Buster and I got for our families were all well-received, especially little Lulu. My MIL cried like a baby when Lulu was presented, and she was instantly in love. She has thanked us several times a day since Christmas Eve. Also, the Sarah McLachlan tickets I got for my sister, her girlfriend, and my mom and dad were a big hit and surprise. I was pretty proud of myself for that idea, honestly. We never get big-name concerts (or any concerts, really) to my town, so when I heard Sarah was coming, I had to get tickets!

Buster spoiled me rotten this Christmas (all of the gifts he bought me were bought before he lost his job, in case anyone was wondering!). I got a Kindle (so excited!), the gray rosebud earrings I had posted about in this post and then an identical purple pair, slip-on gray chucks (yay!), some Exotic Coconut lotion (the only lotion I'll use, lol). He also got me an amazing Boos cutting board! This sucker is 2 inches thick, made of Cherry, and beautiful!

Then, the biggest surprise of all, he got me a right-hand ring! I don't wear a ton of jewelry, but I had been mentioning a lot in the past several months how I'd like a nice right-hand ring. Well, he listened! He did a great job :)

Kelsey had a great Christmas, too. Not only did she get rid of her annoying foster-sister, she raked it in with new toys and treats, and even a new food and water bowl with adjustable height settings. Here is a pic of her with her new "woobie", given to her by my MIL:

From our parents, Buster and I received a plethora of things, namely a Bradley smoker (Buster can't wait to make some jerky), a set of Henckels knives (all of my ridiculously subpar knives had previously come from Walmart), and a Logitech Revue with Google TV. The Google TV thing is really cool. Buster especially likes it.

All in all, we had a great Christmas. We ate tons of good food, spent a lot of time with family, and made people happy. What more could I ask for? I hope you all had a wonderful holiday experience as well.

Now to get back to Stardust on my Kindle... :)
