Christmas, Part Two

I told y'all last night that I'd finish my Christmas post.  My family is watching Inception right now, and this blonde brain of mine doesn't quite understand it, so I figured I'd do a blog post!   I have a lot of thoughts to put into one post, but I'll try to keep this short!

Last thing I told y'all was that my family was watching our home movie DVDs on Christmas morning.  Mom makes a wonderful ham and cheese croissant casserole (we look forward to eating it every year!) that we munched on all morning and afternoon.  Here are a few pictures of my goodies that I opened from Santa:

...because a girl is never too old for a new Barbie, of course!

...but Santa's elves at Neiman Marcus did run into a bit of a problem

Luckily, Neiman Marcus has free return shipping, so the proper size cable bracelet will be sent to me soon! 
I thought "small" was normal and "medium" was for larger wrists... but that wasn't the case! The small bracelet you see in the front is obviously for a super tiny wrist. 

Brandon came over and had dinner with my family on Christmas.  We exchanged presents afterward.  His dad helped me find the perfect gift for him.  

A 1940s/1950s vintage Omega watch.
All of the gold you see is 18k. He loved it! 

I had the back engraved.

Brandon gave me a beautiful ring that his dad made.  His parents own a jewelry store in Beaufort and picked out the stone in Germany during one of their diamond trips.  They gave me a gorgeous amethyst pendant that was also picked out and made by Brandon's dad.  So special!

It has been such a great Christmas.  Yes, Santa was awfully good to me, but the real reason for the season made this a wonderful holiday.  It's not the presents under the tree, but the people around it! Hope you all made wonderful memories this Christmas. 

...& hey, we even got snow today!  It didn't stick, but it sure looked pretty coming down!  It wasn't anything worth taking a picture of, though. 

Here are a few OOTD before I sign off for the night-

Brandon and I gave each other (almost) matching Patagonias! They are so comfy!
