Hi there and happy Friday Saturday! I had grand plans to post this on Friday, but I made the last-minute decision to go to one of those urgent care clinics last night after work. I mentioned in Thursday’s post that I hadn’t been feeling so great since Christmas Eve, and by yesterday my throat hurt so bad that I just couldn’t take it anymore. The doctor said I have a sinus infection, quickly prescribed me some meds, and I’m already on the mend!
Anyway, today I’m joining Heather’s Friday Favorites link-up and sharing some of my favorite gifts from under the tree this year!
First up, these earrings from Chris:
He got them at the same store my engagement/wedding ring is from, and I love them. They have my birthstone, amethyst, but are simple enough to wear every day.
Another favorite is this iPad case:
I love my iPad mini, but I feel like I don’t use it enough! I thought getting a keyboard case might help with this. Plus, I love the bright pink color. (FYI, for anyone interested, you can find this case on Amazon.)
Chris’s sister and brother-in-law got me a super-soft and comfortable robe.
They actually bought me a bunch of stuff from the Animal Rescue Site (you can see the paw prints in the picture above!). Cute clothing that benefits a great cause is my idea of a wonderful gift!
I’m also super-excited about this cookbook, The Real Girl’s Kitchen by Haylie Duff, that my sister got me.
I bought this for my friend Sara for Christmas, but I was good and didn’t flip through it since I had it on my Christmas list, too. I can’t wait to try a bunch of new recipes.
Last, but not least, this Pandora bracelet from my parents…
I love this style—I didn’t even know something like this existed. Rather than collect different beads, I can change out one single clip. I love the simplicity and multiple, mesh-style chains.
It was definitely a great Christmas!
