I don’t know if Santa was good to you this year or not, but he was sure good to me!
1/2. I made quite a fuss when I posted the Sorel Riding boot on my Facebook page. I cannot lie. I am beyond excited about them. I currently only own the ones with the gray tops, but am strongly considering purchasing another pair (2). They’re warm, sleek, and the best part (which is one of the reasons I bought them) is that I can wear them to town with skinny jeans, or to ride my horses in. Combined with some smart wool socks, you are ready to go for winter!
3/4. My cowboy gave me both pairs (3) and (4) of fleece PJ pants for Christmas. The white ones are probably the warmest, softest thing I’ve ever worn, and the red/black ones, have pockets. Who doesn’t love pockets in lounge pants?
5. My niece gifted me with the “50 Shades of Hay” nightshirt. How cute!
6. I had put the Cuisinart Griller on our Amazon.com Wishlist. And lo and behold,
Santa, er um, the Cowboy, brought it to me. I don’t have the waffle iron plates, as I have a Cuisinart waffle iron, but I’m considering getting them, and then donating my waffle iron to someone who needs one!
7. I didn’t put a balance ball chair on my Christmas List but Zach decided I needed one anyway! I LOVE it. It’s so comfortable, and unlike my previous, clunky office chair, this one actually fits under my desk, which makes my messy office seem decidedly less messy, somehow. And it gives me more floorspace in the 9×10 room. Speaking of, who decided that was the minimum size needed for a bedroom? Seriously.
8. I purchased two men’s sweaters the same day I bought the Sorel Boots (when I was supposed to be Christmas Shopping for everyone else). I have found that it’s much harder for me to layer under women’s sweaters (at least until I lose another 15 pounds). These were the type of sweaters I was looking for. I love American Eagle. They’re both a cotton/acrylic/rabbit fur blend. I’m not a fan of acrylic, but I have to say, these are both really warm when layered over a denim shirt and long sleeved tee or long john shirt.
What’s not pictured are a few things that I think warrant their own post (plus Lowe’s gift cards from my family!). Who doesn’t love a Lowe’s card?
Was Christmas good to you? I’d love to hear about your favorite gift!
Happy Trails and Happy New Year!
