Happy New Years Eve! We are having a black and gold party at our house tonight with music and BBQ. You can tell who chose the food! ;) Should be a fun time and I'll post about it in 2014!
I debated about this post looking bad but I did want to remember what we received for our first Christmas together. Obviously we loved spending time with family and giving to others more than we did receiving anything but nonetheless, here are some of our gift highlights!
Kevin's parents gave me this Tocca collection of travel size perfumes. If you haven't ever tried Tocca, you're missing out. My love of Tocca started from my friend Lindsey! She wore Tocca Florence when I visited her in Dallas many years ago and I ran out and got it immediately when I returned.
They also gave me a Sephora gift card and I was able to get some new makeup. I hadn't since before our wedding. Another favorite in my stocking at Kevin's parent's house was the Mac Viva Glam IV lip glass. And you should see this scarf that his Mama picked out at a shop in town. I have already worn it!
This was something I've wanted for a long time....a yard sign with our address. I CANNOT wait to get this up in our yard. And no this is not ours...you really think I'm going to post our address!?! Haha! It's going to look super classy. Thank you G's!
My parents had a couple pictures framed to match the same frame, matting and beading around the picture as another one I have from my brother's wedding. Truly treasured piece and it will go in our living room...when we get furniture.
Speaking of furniture...my parents also gave us this table. It's a GORGEOUS antique and this picture doesn't do it justice. The shell detail on top is icing on the cake. Thankfully since we rented a large car to go to Maryland in, we were able to bring this baby home with us!
New Tervis tumblers! Kevin and I got personalized big daddy tumblers. His has a John Deere on it and mine has a Wolf on it for NC State. We love them from our nieces in Pawleys Island! Mom and Dad also gave me these tumblers with our monogram on them. I have some with my old initials that I will still use but it's fun to see a G in the middle now! ;)
Kevin's parents also got me these seahorse Vineyard Vines lazy pants. I'm obsessed. This is my 4th pair because they are THAT comfortable.
A steamer! Thank you Mother Dearest for making sure our clothes look good and I won't have to go to the dry cleaners every other day.
Let's get down to the exciting stuff. My parents gave Kevin a hedge trimmer and I never thought I'd be so excited. This thing has already transformed our backyard bushes. We have SO many bushes in our yard that require constant trimming and this thing is amazing. He also got a hose. And sunglasses. And a couple new VV shirts. And a remote control car. He's fancy!
I love seeing what you all received too so please post. I will admit, the older I've gotten, I really enjoy watching other people open gifts we give them, more than receiving. Do you all feel the same? But we are SO thankful for a HUGE Christmas. So this is what it's like with two families?!!
