I had such a fabulous Christmas. It was so relaxing. I was spoiled rotten. Q went shopping with my mom and picked out this beautiful butterfly necklace. Q picked it all by himself. My mom says that as soon as he found it, he just knew. Even when the sales lady showed him other ones, he just knew that mommy would love the one he had chosen. And I do. I so do. I got a beautiful cashmere sweater and suede boots (great for a soccer mom such as myself!!)
And it was peaceful. Unlike millions of people who hate their family, I am fortunate enough to like mine! I had my beautiful son, my lovely momma, and all was right with the world. If my brother had been there, it would have been perfect. On Christmas Eve, Q fell asleep to "T'was The Night Before Christmas" and me singing him Christmas carols. We left cookies out for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. I love that innocence about Q. The innocence of believing in Santa. It's something I don't ever remember. I remember pretending to believe when I was little. But I don't ever remember believing.
My plan for Boxing day - of course - was to fight for the last of this, or the size 10 in that...shopping with the masses of people who didn't get what the wanted on Christmas. Or maybe they did, but the lure of bargains and the desire for things got the better of them. We woke up early in the morning, put on some coffee, made some scrambled eggs and decided that shopping was the absolute last way we wanted to spend the day. The funny thing was, there was really nothing I could think of that I wanted. I had everything that I needed. Instead, I took Q to a movie.
Peace. That's what I'm talking about.
Nothing...I didn't need a thing...
...then I went on e-bay.
Turns out, I needed a new messenger bag for work (it's super cute), perfume (Ralph Lauren Romance, my favourite scent ever), and a Coach bag. I kinda feel really very guilty about the last purchase, because when all was said and done it was $175.00. And I really don't need it...but, it's pink. And it's Coach...Coach!! Really, it's more of an investment. Pieces like this are classic, you have them for years and years. And c'mon - pink...how ME is that?
Holy Crap. I just spent $175.00 on a purse.
