It's funny because I stocked the Christmas tree full of presents all month until our Christmas, slowly adding more to the hub's pile of goodies. However, two days before we were supposedly supposed to open our presents, I still had nothing under the tree with my name on it. Grew me a little worrisome? Yes. Should I have worried if "Santa" would come for me? No way! Here's what lay under the tree to surprise me the day before we opened gifts:
Whoa! I couldn't stop asking," What's in the box?!?!" As soon as I opened it, I found out it was our fake tree's box and all my presents lay inside. Look how good Santa was to me! Thank youuu, hubby!
- two sweaters
- Christmas kitchen towels
- my favorite bath bombs
- tons of my favorite foodie items
- a Paris-themed journal
- a Beatles book called A Hard Day's Write
- a travel size skin care set from Dermalogica
- a new travel mug
So many goodies! My favorite of all is my new running outfit:
I am soooo excited about this outfit! I was seriously lacking some winter running wear, so this will come in handy for a brisk winter running season. The jacket is a VSX Sport jacket - lightweight but very warm. The running tights and shorts are C9 brand from Target. I love the C9 brand. It's just as nice as more expensive athletic wear for a more wallet-friendly price :) Anyway, I'm absolutely thrilled to have this outfit. Hopefully I won't let the cold be an excuse for not running anymore.
To end our early gift exchange, the hubs and I made some of my family's tradition aebleskiver:
More on that later!
- Question for you: Have you ever opened Christmas presents early, and if so, why? Does is still feel like Christmas to you?
