I still have another two days of vacation but I guess this post will officially wrap up our holiday season. I thought I would do something fun today for the weekly wrap, I'm going to share some of the things I unwrapped this week!
Every year my family asks us all to make a Christmas list and I rarely do it. In fact, I don't think anyone should be making a list (That's not what Christmas is about). At this point in our lives we don't need anything and as adults we usually buy the things that we want. If its something expensive, we save up, we don't expect someone else to buy it for us. To me, Christmas is about showing appreciation to those you love and by giving something that makes you think of them. I personally feel that is all the fun of the gift exchange, being surprised at what someone picked out for you!
With that being said, I LOVE that my friends and family know me so well. Every gift I received was absolutely perfect for me! But then again if you pick something running, Disney, or Labradors, you can't go wrong. I'm a simple gal!
Here are some of the running goodies I got. The most exciting gift was from Scott and it was a race registration! To go along with that he got me a new pair of Mizuno Wave Riders and two pair of Reebok fleece lined running tights (one black and one grey). I also received my first pair of Smartwool socks which I am excited to try them out on a cold run. I got a few new running headbands and my sister made me an Are We Running Today shirt from Chicago (it has my name on the other side) and bought me a water bottle for my Flip belt ( I did kind of hint I wanted to try that. Thank you to Judy from Chocolate Runs Judy for letting me know these bottles existed.) oh, and even though I mentioned this in a previous post, my Secret blogger Tricia (from MissSippiPiddlin) gave me a wrist wrap.
And for my Disney side, my sister gave me some Disney Christmas Pajamas, this extremely soft Disney blanket and a new wallet. I had planned to get a new Mickey wallet (I have an identical one that is falling apart) when I visited Disney for Wine n Dine but we ended up being so busy that I never got to do any shopping! My friend Heather (from Heather' Spin) sent me the Mickey earrings!
No holiday is complete without a few Labrador gifts. Baylee made me a 2017 calendar of pictures of herself. Wasn't that sweet of her??? I got a few other Labrador goodies but the calendar and this flag were my favorite.
Scott and I actually designed the flag together as a gift for us down by the pool. Since the pool is basically for Baylee we wanted to get a sign or something for it but when I saw we could make a flag I thought it was perfect!
I also got some clothes, a winter coat, some jewelry, houseware items, and bath and body products.
What did you Unwrap this week? -M
