Ok, so I already owned this beautiful necklace (evidently Kiera Knightly is a fan) but more than two years ago, the chain broke. And, in my infinite laziness… I never got around to getting it fixed. Which is extra pathetic because it’s not only one of my most favorite wear-daily necklaces, but also because there is a Tiffany’s in DC. D’oh. Thankfully, I have a generous mother who kindly repaired the chain and polished it up nice and pretty.
I received this kick-ass calendar from my “secret snowflake” – my work-place’s politically-correct version of a “secret santa.” I have to say, my snowflake did her research and hit the nail on the head. Can I help it if I’m twenty-eight going on nine…
I know it’s not well written, and I know that it’s basically a dressed-up abstinence-only PSA disguised as a teen-romance novel, but I don’t care. I love, love, loves it. And the copies of the Entertainment Weekly that DF gave me – icing!
Inspired by LL’s bold purchase in October, I added booties (shooties?) to my wish list… and Santa came through. They’re super fun to wear, even if I’m technically too short for them!
And, to be sure, the best Christmas gift I could have EVER asked for was the mortar and pestle I received from a friend and colleague, JR. Turns out, JR went to a wedding in Chile over the winter break. And, turns out the wedding was in my birth place. Of all the wedding locations in the world… Anyway, JR brought me back the gift above, and I swear to you, I cried a little. Talk about the perfect gift.
So you know what? I had a great holiday season, I had a wonderful time with my lovely family and crazy/beautiful friends, and went to an amazing wedding. What else could a lady ask for?
