Friday Favourites

Back to the weekly link up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favourites!

I thought I would share some of the favourite Christmas gifts that I received this year.  Not that everything wasn't great, but here are the top 5, in no particular order.

1.  I am finally one of those Toronto people. I have Uggs (you East Coast people know what I mean, especially if you went to Dalhousie).  But they are so comfortable, and it is nice to have a warm boot to wear when I walk down the street.  I have not adopted the messy ponytail, nor do I regularly leave my house in sweatpants, so maybe there is still hope for me yet!

2. This was a surprise.  Dave and I had discussed getting a computer as a family gift but then we never mentioned it again. I have always had a Dell laptop (and desktop before that), but I am enjoying this Mac.

3. I have had a cross necklace for a long time, but I saw this style and liked it right away.  It is from Stella and Dot.

4. I had a lot of books on my list this year.  I am looking forward to reading them, and trying recipes from the cookbooks.

5. Now that we don't have an en suite bathroom, I am back and forth from our room to the bathroom more often.  I thought it would be a good idea to get a robe, for all involved, haha.  This one from Victoria's Secret is so cozy!

I do look forward to opening my own gifts on Christmas morning, but I am more excited about seeing people open the gifts I got for them, hoping they like it, and seeing their reaction.


  1. Love my uggs too! And my mac (most days) and that cross necklace! Happy new year!

  2. You are a thoughtful gift giver. A talent you have which is much appreciated by the receivers of your generous and carefully selected gifts.

  3. Eek..I got a new Macbook too! I switched to a Mac 6 years ago and will NEVER go it! Have fun!
