Christmas Gifts, Part One
Brian, Michelle, Wes, Brett and I got together on the 21st to exchange Christmas gifts. Here's my impressive haul!
A. Brian got me a new printer! My old printer lasted a good four years or so... but it finally died out on me. Printing at the UVU library got old really quickly, and it will be nice to print photos and stuff again (especially now with all the wedding pics). And this new one is wireless! So fancy schmancy!
B. Michelle got me Horrible Bosses, which is a hilarious movie. Luckily I now have a super awesome boss so I won't have to murder her any time soon.
C. Friends With Benefits, another fun movie from Michelle, features my Justin Timberlake. He's my other husband that Brian doesn't know about. Well, one of them. I have a lot of celebrity husbands.
D. Ink for my new printer (A). Brian had me open the ink first and I said, "But honey, our printer is dead..." and that's when he said, "Your new printer is hiding in the trunk of my car!" I was so happy!
E. Aveda shampoo and conditioner from Michelle. It smells of rosemary/mint and should help my scalp while strengthening my hair.
F. Aveda exfoliating cleanser, also from Michelle. Hopefully my face won't be as ugly anymore.
G. Michelle continued to pamper me with Aveda Lip Saver. My lips really love that stuff!
H. One last Aveda product from Michelle (who is a very recent Aveda graduate, can you tell?): grooming clay! It keeps my hair lookin' all sexy.
I. Brian got me the first season of New Girl! I love that show and even Brian likes it... and he pretty much hates television. We both just laugh and laugh while watching the current season. "Puppy in a cup!" Sorry, only those who watch it will get that reference.
J. Even though he's not a fan of Home Alone, Brian knows that it's one of my favorite Christmas movies so he got it for me. Isn't he a sweetie?
K. Brian got me the second season of Glee (I already had the first) and now I can gleek out whenever I want. Well, I can gleek out whenever he's not home at least. Or within listening distance.
L. Michelle gave me a new gray tie from Old Navy to wear to work. I really like it!
M. Michelle also got me a baby blue Stafford dress shirt to wear with my tie (L) and I look pretty dang sexy in them both. Minus my love handles...
N. Michelle got Brian and I tickets to an upcoming production of Spring Awakening at the University of Utah! I'm so excited to go because I love that musical so much; I sing songs from it in the shower all the time. I hope U of U does a good job staging it. Of course, nothing can compare to my shower performances, but hey, they can try.
O. Brett got me an awesome blue hoodie from Express! He was spot on with the color choice, because I love it! It's also super comfy (and I'm sure expensive). Thanks, Brett!
P. Brian got me seasons one and two of the classic TV series I Love Lucy. We both love that show a ton, so it's really a gift for himself as well. I can't wait to start re-watching them!
Q. Brian also got me an iTunes gift card. I could use some new tunes, so I'll definitely be using that!
R. Wes got me a Best Picture collection of movies on DVD. It came with Braveheart, Forrest Gump, American Beauty, Gladiator, Titanic, The Godfather and Terms of Endearment. So many great movies!
S. Brian got me the Barnes and Noble edition of Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Anansi Boys. He was quick to capitalize on my new-found love for Gaiman's writing, and I haven't yet read Anansi Boys so I'm excited for that.
