What I got for Christmas

Hello wonderful readers! As promised here is my post about what I got for Christmas this year. By posting this I am not trying to brag. Lots of people on youtube show what they got so I decided, why not write a blog post about it. So here goes….

On Christmas Eve my boyfriend and I celebrate with just his parents, since on Christmas morning we celebrate with my family. From my boyfriends mom and dad in my stocking from them I got many little goodies. I got candy (whats Christmas without candy), headbands and a wash cloth that grows in water. My big gift from them this year was an Ipad mini 2, and I am in love. I had the first Ipad mini, but the screen cracked on it and I was afraid to use it. So this year since mine was broken they got me a new one. As well as my Ipad, I got some POP figures, a mini Flash stuffed beanie thing, the Minions movie, a wax warmer with wax refils and some PJ’s. I am so grateful for what they got me and love everything I got.

The next morning with Christmas with my family I got more great stuff as well. First thing we do in my family is open our stockings. This year in our stockings we got a luffa on a stick, magnets for the fridge with a cute quote on it, candy, a adult coloring book and colored pencils. My mom got different ones for each of us, but for me she got a Harry Potter one. I can not wait to start coloring in it. We also got stockings from my Grandma, that was full of candy, food, and instead of a gift we got money.

Moving on to gifts this year starting with my sister, she got me Red converse. If you could see my closet, I have 7 pairs. I have pink ones with my name on the back, pink with white polka dots, blue with white polka dots, teal, plain white, gray and blue. From my mom I got clothes (blue denim button up shirt, scarf, plaid shirt and vest),the newest Apple TV, some Alex and Ani braclets (a peace sign and an Emerald), A Clarisonic 2, a pair of dark purple converse, Uggs with bows on the back, a new cookbook, and a light up marquee letter.

After Christmas with my family we go to Bradley’s mom’s sides Christmas. Instead of buying for everyone, we only buy for one person. But his grandma bought for everyone. This year the person who bought for me was Bradley’s dad. He got me two movies; Age of Adaline and Magic Mike XXL. And from his grandma I got minion PJ pants, a minion shirt, lotion/soap, a scarf and a big mug with hot chocolate mix.

And our last stop of the day is to Bradley’s dad’s side. There we only get for his grandma and grandpa. But his grandma and grandpa get a bag of stuff for all that’s a free for all for all the different families, and one specific gift for each person. This year from them I got a penguin cookie jar full of hot chocolate, as well as money. In Bradley and I’s bag we got an umbrella, food, gloves, clips, candy and a towel and oven mitt set with a penguin on it. IMG_1495.jpg

Apart from my family, I also got gifts from my mom’s boyfriends dad (Olive Garden gift card); my grandma’s neighbor (Amazon gift card); my grandma’s other neighbor (Amazon gift card); my Aunt, Uncle and cousins (DSW gift card), and one of Bradley’s Aunts (Olive Garden gift card).

This may seem like I am bragging because of all the places and gifts I got but I am not bragging in any way. I am thankful for each and every gift and I gave back to my family and friends as well. Let me know what you got or gave if you celebrate. If you don’t what did you do this holiday season. I’ll see you back here soon for another post.

 Now that all my goodies are in I cant wait to start using them and I get to add more swatches to my swatch book that I made. If you haven’t checked out Blitsy you should. Each day at 10am they post new sales that can be up to 70% off. And the deals last for about a week or so. It’s a great website to buy craft items for cheap and buy items that might not be sold in stores. In case you want to check it out here is the website.

As if I need more craft supplies, Bradley and I went to Michael’s today and I got some more goodies. I got some washi tape sets that they always have, some new Valentines washi tape sets and new paper pads.

In the first picture the two washi tape sets that have Tan and Brown packaging are sets that Michael’s has had for awhile. The White and Red package is the new Valentines set. The second picture are the new washi tape sets of 7 different patterns.

The two paper pads I got are by Crate Paer and Dear Lizzy and both so CUTE. The first paper pad is called Hello Love and the second is called Documentary. There were many other cute paper pads that were summer theme but decided on just these today. Bradley and I are going out shopping again tomorrow I think and I might check a different store and see if they have them.  I have also seen pastel set washi tape and paper pads, so maybe I will be able to find those . If not I will be fine with the summer pads. I hope you enjoyed today’s post. And don’t forget to check out what I got for Christmas, that I am writing right now as you are reading this or it will already be posted by the time you read this.
