Xmas Thru Pictures

Merry Christmas To MEEEEE !
My hubby spoiled me this year...


My little princess (with some help from Daddy) bought me this beautiful ring.
It's a Topaz stone which is Madyson's birthstone, so I can pass it on to her in the future.

Some of the other things I opened up Xmas morning were:

Thank you to my family for making my holiday so magical,
I really am blessed & so thankful ...

My little princess is now ONE.
A whole year has gone by and she is no longer a she is a toddler.
The past 12 months have come and gone in a flash and she is growing up so quickly.
I had so much fun planning her special day.
She will never remember her first party, but luckily we have lots of pictures
to share with her in the future!

Secret Santa Swap

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!
I love this time of year so much
and although I absolutely LOVE giving gifts,
 I don't mind receiving them either!
Today I am linking up with some lovely ladies to share
my wonderful gifts I received from our Xmas blog swap.

First of all I would like to thank my Secret Santa, Stephanie,
for taking the time to pick out such thoughtful gifts.
I loved the card she sent me -
 it has a picture of Canada's Parliament in winter on the front and
 inside she mentioned that she drives by this every day - what a beautiful view!
What I loved about this gift is that most of the items were handmade by local Ottawa artisans.
What lady doesn't need a new bag to tote around?!
 This one is the perfect size for anything from some lipgloss & a cellphone
to some change and a pack of gum!
 The design is so cute too!
Next I opened this candle...
If anyone knows me then they know that I ALWAYS
have candles burning at home.
 I love the ambiance that candles create and the neutral color matches my home perfectly!
I am pretty sure that every single outfit I own has some form of black in it.
So this scarf was a perfect choice for me!
Stephanie also sent me a cute little pair of button earrings:
Can you believe there is still more?!
She also sent me this adorable Santa ornament !
Thank you again for all the beautiful gifts,
Merry Christmas !

I'm linking up to let you know what is OK today :

Its Ok Thursdays
That I thought it was a good idea to run a few errands last night after getting my brows waxed. I thought a little pressed powder on top of the fresh wound would make everything okay, but apparently I was wrong. People were looking at me in horror as if I had just been mauled outside in the parking lot by a circus tiger.
That I am going to get some fresh highlights in about an hour and have no intention on changing the pants that I slept in all night.
That I have like 4000 presents to wrap for Xmas and they are all sitting on the floor in front of me right now but I am choosing to write this post instead.
That I look like a ghost - it's 20 degrees outside and I would love to lay out in the sun and soak up some vitamin D but I think I'll have to settle for a spray tan instead.
That I "accidentally" left up a page of bedroom vanities on my hubby's laptop in case he has a desire to buy me one for Xmas :)
Have a wonderful Thursday Lovely Ladies!

I was so excited when my mailman rang my doorbell and left THIS package on my doorstep:
How cute is this box?
 I didn't even want to rip it open because I loved it so much.
After staring at the box for 5 minutes I decided it was time to open it up!

I love nice handwriting


This lil' reindeer ornament was so cute he had to go right on the tree!

I used to watch this with my family every year.
Now I am so excited to start the tradition with my little one.

And this was the face she made while watching me open up our box of goodies.
Thank you again Mushy Mommy  - you made our day!
