OMG! Had most fabulous Christmas! Oh, yes! We. All. Did.
Boot-cut Ralph Lauren Kelly Jean (The MOST fab jean out there; sexy and comfie), an elliptical trainer (yay! I don't have to go out in the freezing cold to the gym if I don't want to!), gift certificates to the Spaaaaah, an iPod (the husband searched all over for a pink one, but ended up with a silver one), a new watch, a super-dee-duper Hoover Floor-Mate (perfect for my mostly carpet-less house), journals, pens, kitchen-y wares, a digital meat thermometer (how did we live without one before?) many, many things from Sephora, new jammies, an apple-y green cashmere turtle neck, fuzzy lavender slippers, moola, and the very best gift of all...three (3!) weeks in Florida to see friends and family leaving January 12th!
The kids were totally spoilt by Santa, too, tons of toys, video games, a Coke™ mini-fridge, a Nintendo DS, Polly Pockets, My Little Ponies, Fur Real Bears, Seinfeld DVDs, SpongeBob DVDs, Different Strokes DVDs (yes, we are THAT lame, but DAMN it's some good TV), Bionicles™, Law & Order DVDs (God Bless poor Jerry Orbach), an electronic drum set, dollies, strollers and 8 billion other things my children did NOT need.
Have spent the week eating turkey-type left-overs, watching VH-1 I Love the 80's Strikeback and Food Network, lazing around in my pj's, sleeping in, cleaning up bits of wrapping paper, and playing Cadoo and Polly Pocket. Had friends and the family over to watch DVDs, eat food, drink wine and mucho champagne and compare notes on our gifties.
It's been a good week.
The husband and I received free tix from the Casino for (don't laugh!) David Cassidy concert tomorrow (quit laughing!) and after mucho deliberation, we've decided to go (I swear if he wears that satin shirt, I may need to slip on some Depends™, though!). I figure dinner, wine, concert (we'll wait for "I Think I Love You") and then another drink, some gratuitous gambling and then some heavy groping in the car on the way home.
Edited to add: I've learned that the husband has been a silent and furtive reader on this here blog. So I just want to say that the heavy groping has been changed to some of the BEST wifely activity a guy can get tomorrow night. How's that, honey?
