Christmas and All...

We spent Christmas Eve at twin's...it was so much fun! All of my favorite family and friends were present...except for Aunt Diana and later that night Brother and SIL and kids came down from Northern Cal, along with their 2 cute dogs: Sugar and Almond. Thanks to Kate, Sylvia and the kids for making it to twin's...it is GREAT to have you share the holiday's with me and my family! Sylvia~thanks for the AMAZING gift! I wonder what we will get each other next year! LOL! I am thankful for all my gifts; esp. my Chelsea Handler book and my PINK camera! Thanks Kate and Twin.
The day after Christmas BF Kate, twin, nephew and I went to Target for the after Christmas sale at 7 am- a yearly tradition. We made it to 2 Target's, Kohl's (which had all items ridiculously overpriced even though most items were 70% off), Bed, Bath and Beyond, Home Goods, etc. It was a full day ~ we started a new tradition of going bowling following our shopping spree. So much fun! Here are a few pictures of Christmas 2008! Looking forward to 2009!

Christmas Ornament Swap


Today I sent my Christmas Ornament Swap Buddy her ornament. I thought the ornament was adorable and I hope she does too! While at the same time I got a darling ornament from my Secret Blogger- I am not sure if I am supposed to reveal yet or not, so I will wait until tomorrow to post a picture and publicly thank my Swap Buddy. It was back to work today and the day seemed so LONG! I ended up leaving a bit early to go and get a mani and pedi! Mom, twin and I went to Nordstrom's yesterday and we got some pretty goodies- I will share a few of my favorites!


Cashmere Gloves- I got these as a gift for someone and threw in a pair for myself- I couldn't resist.








Juicy Cupcake Necklace- I was going to get this for a co-worker, but ended up deciding it may look better on me! I am so bad! After all how wrong would it be for a Principal to buy a gift just for one employee? That would be so not fair to all my other teacher's and support staff.








Juicy Pink Gloves- And "NO DAD" you can't find these gloves at Wal-Mart!










The 2 items I did see that I did not get for myself, but would love to have them are the JC Bubble Gum Machine- How cute would that look on my desk? And the Betsy Johnson bracelet...She has a funk style, but it is sort of growing on me... Well I guess that's it for now- Have a good night~
