Christmas Gift Recap

1 January 2013 7 Comments

I hope each and every one of you had a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year!  My break from the blog ended up being a little bit longer than I expected (and I never did finish my It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas Series), but it was so nice to take some time to enjoy family, take wintery dog walks, relax, eat far too much and play with all of the cool gifts I was so blessed to receive  Honestly, my family pulled out all of the stops for me this year.  I felt loved.  Very loved.  Here is just a small gift recap.Camera BagThis Manfrotto camera bag is amazing!  I finally have a bag that allows me to carry all of my photography gear and my laptop with room to spare for personal items like my wallet, sunglasses etc.  It’s so nice to not have to carry multiple bags.New LensMy new lens!  All of these pictures were taken with it.  I’m in L.O.V.E.  This is one of those gifts that I put on my list but never actually expected anyone to go out and get it for me.  I was so surprised that A. actually did.  It’s been on my camera since I opened it!Hot CoutureI got lots of perfume!  I love Hot Couture.  It’s incredible!  It’s been so long since I’ve had a really nice, expensive perfume and I’m so thankful to have a stock pile now!McDonalds CoffeeMy sister got everyone a bag of McDonald’s coffee to go with the gift  cards she got us.  If you’ve never tried this coffee you’re missing out!  It’s my favourite and I’ve been brewing it at home every day this week!Samsung LaptopSpeaking of gift cards…The future shop cards my sister gave me allowed me to pick up a brand new laptop for FREE!  And I used some cash I got from my parents to purchase a new TV for my office.  Best. Boxing, Day. Ever.  Best. Christmas Ever. And even though I didn’t take pictures of everything I have to mention that I also got the frames I wanted, a steam vac, a pizza cooker (which is amazing and I will share details on later), a gift card to Michaels, slippers, pajamas and more!  To all of my family that reads this blog – I love you.  Thank you so much for a great Christmas.  You spoiled me.

How was your Christmas?  Did you have the opportunity to spend some time enjoying your families and friends?  Did you eat way too much like I did?diana
