My Christmas Loot!

I'm not sure how I'll muster up the strength to leave my robe and cozy bed to go back to school in a week's time. I have gotten way too comfortable waking up around 9am and then lazily curling up with a book and some breakfast in bed. Oh the joys of being a teacher with some time off.

Anyway, Mason and I had a lovely Christmas. On Christmas Eve, we went to the Candlelight service at Marvin Methodist Church in Tyler and then afterwards over to my Aunt's house for some appetizers and wine.

Being that currently there are no small children in my family, (my youngest cousin is 14) we took our time waking up, which is nice, but makes it not feel quite like Christmas morning. We did not even put out cookies for Santa this year. Sad. We quickly made up for this, however, with the excitement of opening up tons of presents.
Here are a few of my favorite gifts that I received:
1.) Hot pink and white houndstooth print scarf - Sample House (from Mom)
2.) Grey tee with sequined embellished sleeves - Gap (from Mom)
3.) Laura Bush book with book light (from my sister Claire)
4.) Champagne flutes - Crate & Barrel (Mason's mom gave me 4, my brother Connor gave me 2)
5.) Cookbook stand - Stein Mart (from Mom)
6.) Pink house shoes - Old Navy (from Santa/Mom)
7.) Gianni Binni metallic clutch - Dillard's (from Mom)
8.) White ski headband (from Mom)
9.) Tory Burch flats - Tory Burch (from Mason)

And that is only some of the fun stuff that I got this Christmas. I am a very lucky girl and am thankful to have such a generous and thoughtful family.

What was your favorite gift this Christmas?


  1. I love your dress! And, looks like you had a wonderful Christmas! I don't know how I'm gonna come out of my pj's to go back to work next week either. :)

  2. I love Burberry and my brother got me a new bottle of Burberry London! That gift was a close second...my favorite gift is my new furniture for my office/spare bedroom that is being delivered TODAY!

  3. It's going to be hard for me to get up next week too :(

    Love all your presents and that picture of you and Mason on Christmas Eve!
