I must have been a very good girl this year because I got a lot of the things that I wanted. And, some I didn't even know I wanted! But, one of the greatest gifts was from Mike:
A brand, spanking new Canon Rebel T1i. I've already picked out a new strap and fancy purse/bag. I will look pretty darn good toting this bad boy around. Too bad I have yet to figure it out, oh well, I'm having fun learning!
Not only did I get my big ticket item, I got a lot of the other stuff I asked for too.
Like the hive vase from West Elm that my mom and dad got me:
While it looks smallish online, it's pretty substantial in real life. I thought it would go next to the chair in the living room, but it's pretty much the same size as the new lamp I bought. I'm still working on where to put it. Most likely it'll stay in the living room because it looks so darn cute with the gray walls and brown furniture.
I also got the lipstick, Shellac nail polish, and grocery bag carrier, among others. I'm so grateful for everything I got, and had a blast with all my family! Now we can put all the decorations away and relax!
