- Waterford Crystal Champagne flutes for the wedding
- Ralph Lauren pajamas
- The Hangover DVD
- A new purse and a new clutch
- A memory book with pages designated to write about everything from our first date to our honeymoon. It's like a baby book but for our engagement/wedding.
- The Twilight book series (I was SOOO excited about this and have started reading Twilight already)
Friday morning Kristian and I woke up and gave the cats their presents (toys w/ catnip) then exchanged our own gifts. He loved the the DVD I made him and has already watched it 5 times. I also gave him a calendar I made on Shutterly of the cats which he thought was hysterical and a new leather desk chair which he's been wanting but never actually asked for. He was thrilled.
He gave me some smaller items in my stocking but my main gifts were a beautiful earring/necklace set, a little adapter so that I can play my IPOD through my car stereo (I've been wanting this forever), an iTunes gift card specifically for downloading the Glee Soundtracks which I asked for but he couldn't find in the stores (I've been jamming out to Glee all day), and Heavenly perfume from Victoria Secret which is my fav.
Afterwards my mom and older brother came over and we exchanged gifts and ate lunch. Thanks to my mom and brother I got my two main gifts that I asked for which were a new digital camera and a blackberry...I finally retired my flip phone circa 2007. Now I can surf the Net on my laptop while checking my emails on my blackberry... it's a bit OOC already. HA.
Later that night we went back to his parents house to eat AGAIN and see his extended family and do the 'White Elephant' gift exchange where I ended up stealing the present I brought (tacky?) and going home with an awesome Shiastu Massage Pillow.
The last two days I've basically just laid on the couch due to the flu like symptoms that decided to invade my body on Saturday. I even had to re-schedule our visit with my other brother and my nieces today so that I don't infect them. Kristian actually left this afternoon to go on a two day hunting trip with his buddy. He offered to stay and nurse me back to health but I know he's been looking forward to this trip and it would be silly to force him to stay here to just stare at me laying on the couch. However we did have the following conversation before he left:
Him- You know where the gun is right?
Him- You know what to do with it?
Me- Point and Shoot
Him- Good girl
This weekend just re-affirmed how incredibly lucky I am to not only have my own wonderful family but a whole new family to marry into. We all had the best time together.
