Go link up with Aly and join in the fun for the Christmas blog challenge.


Day 3: Most Meaningful Gift/Best Gift Received

Well I cannot decide on just one gift. This Christmas will be my 27th one. Holy smokes!! Seriously, 27 wow that makes me sound so old. Yikes ahaha!! Anyways, ok so I know within that 27 years I have had some seriously amazing, awesome, incredible gifts from momma Santa Claus. I can honestly say though, that I do not remember them all...they do not all stand out to me. I get clothes every.single.Christmas. I love getting clothes, I think it is the gift I look forward to most :) I love seeing what hubby or momma or Aarika picks out for me.
But as for the most meaningful gift I have received would have to be the tiny diamond heart necklace hubby got me in 2008. I have posted about it before, but it is seriously a gift I absolutely love. I wear it every.single.day. I rarely ever take it off. I can probably count on one hand the amount of times it has been removed...two of those being my lasik and boob job, as you aren't allowed to have anything on in surgery. I wore this necklace on my wedding day. Hubby sure scored brownie points with this gift :-)

The best gift that stands out would probably be the rollerblades I got when I was about 7 or 8 years old. My cousin Carrie and I got them the same year. And I can just remember how excited we both we Christmas morning. We lived right next to each other in a complex and as soon as we showered we went outside and couldn't stop rollerblading all.day.long. Oh the good ol' days. We had a blast. My rollerblades were black and purple...and huge as I had ginormous feet growing up, size 8 and 9 (side note: which is odd because I am only 5'5). Hubby and I actually have rollerblades now...we have matching balck and red ones, cute I know ;) We love rollerblading, especially by the beach...so much fun!!!
these are the exact ones I had as a kid

Happy Holidays!!! :-)

I love the necklace! And I used to rollerblade ALL over the place! I actually wiped out...really hard...when I was young and I ended up not really riding them too much more after that ;-(
