A Few of My Favorite Things - Christmas 2013

I miss Christmas so much already. I was raised in a Russian Orthodox home so I we got a 'second' Christmas on January 7th -- Little Christmas! Joe isn't totally in on it (so no presents or fancy family meal here), but at the very least, we keep the tree and all of the decorations up until then. Even after the Epiphany, I have some really fabulous reminders of this year's gaiety -- some of the most thoughtful gifts ever. 

Did you get any gifts that warmed you to the core? These are a few of my favorite things from Christmas 2013

Sometimes, you just gotta brag, right?

So, now I have to ask -- what were YOUR favorite gifts?? I've seen a lot of Silhouette cameos, fuzzy slippers, shiny stand mixers, fancy cameras, handmade goodies, gorgeous sweaters, and a whole lot more. 

I'm linking to:


  1. That PB blanket makes me want to curly up and take a nap right now!!! My favorite gifts this year were my Kitchen Aid (still waiting for it to arrive-boo) and Justin Timberlake tickets for me and my bestie!

    1. It is the best blanket ever as I sit curled up on the couch with it right now, but I'd much rather snuggle JT!! Lucky girl!! You will have a blast :)


Feel free to share your thoughts or questions. You make my day!
