Getting the Goods

I'm still slowwwly rolling-in on the holiday stuff. Please forgive me.



I am assuming you are enjoying the goods you received from your loved ones. I've got some good gift givers not just in one family but two! (Reason #78 why marriage is way cool.) To no one's surprise, my list had quite a few home decor items. Take a lookie...


Some serious books! I've made my way through 3 of them already. All highly recommended.


Modern tray. Wish I had a more visible spot to show it off. It's working under the coffee table.


Cozy throw. Pottery Barn, you are good to me and so are you, Mother-In-Law!


My mom bought me my very own cutting mat for my upcoming sewing adventures. I think she missed hers too much.


And the shocker of them all.... 


My parents did a little surprise searching/antiquing to find this...


This is quite the cool coffee table but it will have to wait for awhile. There's no room in the inn.


Oh yeah, because The Mr. is oh-so-trendy he got these...
Double insulted espresso shot glasses. Wow, what a difference they make! Totally worth every penny!


And as a small stocking stuffer, for his A.D.D. tendencies...


We're packed tight in here but boy is it cozy! Tables turned. What was your favorite gift this year?

My camera. I'd been pining for one for quite sometime (mine was glitching BIG time). Since Christmas, I've been a picture-taking maniac. So much so that when my kids see me pulling it out of the case, they run.

I love that throw! Maybe I should knit one...

My have gift this year was a new espresso maker just for me. Greg will still be using our old one:)

I didn't see P.B. table yet. I'll have to check it out. Thanks Amy! This gift was all my parents idea. :)
