It’s so hard adjusting back to working after a holiday. My sleeping schedule is all over the place now and I can hardly keep my eyes open when I’m supposed to be awake. Can we just go back on vacation? I mean I only got friday off but that was enough to take me off schedule. And it doesn’t help that almost everyone at work is still on vacation! Silently jealous! But honestly all I can think about is decorating/painting my new tool box and filling out my new gold polka dot planner. Let me tell you what I got for Christmas!
My mom got me socks. As a kid, I would have been a little bummed getting socks for Christmas. As an adult, I couldn’t be happier! Funny story…I’m not much of a sock person. I don’t usually wear socks. Actually I don’t usually wear shoes that requires socks. I guess that’s because I’ve never put my foot into a REAL sock before. My mom has these socks that I borrowed from her and it was the first time I’ve worn socks that felt like that. It was like my entire foot was being held. It was amazing. My life instantly changed and so did my view on socks! So I kept borrowing my mom’s socks but I would forget to put them back. Long story short, she bought me my own!
My mom got me these warm and cozy house shoes! It feels like my feet are in the folds of a rabbit’s fur. It looks like Los Angeles is actually having a winter this year and it makes the tile in the house cold. So I’m seriously loving my warm house shoes!
My dad got me a watch! Now I know what time it is! All the time! Lol it’s the small things that makes me happy! It’s pretty too! I’m in love with rose gold color watches with rhinestones/diamonds around the face of the watch.
My mom got me a cute cardigan that I want to rock everyday. But I can’t because people will judge me. I mean it’s similar to a jacket right? It’s not like it’s underwear. Why is in unacceptable to be seen in the same cardigan for 7 days straight?
Guess what! My best friend got me my tool box! I actually screamed when I opened this gift! I wasn’t expecting it at all. I’m actually shocked that she knew exactly what kind of tool box I was looking for. I wasn’t even too sure what kind of tool box I wanted. But she knew and surprised me with it!

My other best friend surprised me with these gift cards because she knows my struggle with the twins. I’m not even going to get into that because I can easily go on about how much my breast are a pain! Plus size stores are the ONLY places I can shop for bras and they are EXPENSIVE! So I was more than thankful for these two gift cards from her!
My sister travels a lot and her last adventure was in Italy. She brought me back a bag that I thought was a makeup bag because of it’s shape. After looking on the inside, I don’t think it’s a makeup bag. But even if it was, I’m not using an Italian made bag for makeup!
This is one of the gifts I got for myself this year. Every year I get my usual plain jane planner but this year I stopped at target and found this cute planner. The cover is made of brown cardboard with gold polka dots on it! I had to pick it up! New year, better planner right?
The other gift I got myself was a new laptop. I’ve been needing a new laptop for quite some time now but I’ve been holding on to this one for a while. I just don’t want to get rid of it. It’s my first laptop that I’ve ever had and I bought it myself my second semester of college in Jan 2011. Five years later, it gave out on me! It would not turn back on and even though I saw the signs, I didn’t save my files! I wanted to cry! All those years of work from school, my pictures, everything was just gone. I did some research and found a way to get it back on, and it worked! Thank goodness! So I’m using it right now, but I’m not sure how long it’ll stay on. So I got my files and ordered myself a new laptop!
Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
