Well the presents have been opened, the wrappings have been discarded, and the Christmas breakfast was delicious...
Who's ready for a nap?! Kidding.
(doesn't she look so glamorous buried under all those gifts?)
I must have been a VERY good girl this year because Santa brought me a terrific surprise...
My parents have told me for the past 4 years (at least!) that they will never buy me a television for college because "nothing would get done if you had a television." It's been a battle in the Newton home for years (and I'm not exaggerating lol). I had resigned myself to the fact that I would have to purchase one following graduation. That is, until I walked downstairs this morning and saw this beautiful Panasonic 32" LCD television waiting for me. Want to know one of the best parts?! You can hook up your ipod to the TV!! Yes!! I get to watch my iTunes purchases on the big screen now (like Gossip Girl)!!!
Santa also brought:
I love, love, love Night at the Museum! (glad to have the sequel in my collection now)
$50 iTunes card. Hooray!!
Wonderful hand lotion in "pear vanilla... winter candy apple... and vanilla bean noel"
Now on to the presents from Momma and Papas:
Love this pearl necklace from Surroundings
My favorite perfume Flowerbomb!
And oh here's another huge surprise. A lovely little box!
Isn't that great?!
Kidding, it was actually my GORGEOUS new Citrine and Diamond ring. I was SO surprised!
(apologies for the quality of the photos, sometimes the iPhone doesn't do too well)
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!!
Oh, a quick update on Momma and Papas' gifts: Well as previously posted here, Papas got his rustic tree from Momma. I got him an iTunes gift card since he likes to buy tv shows to watch while he's in Europe. I gave Momma a J.Crew vest. Papas gave her a pearl necklace and a Burberry scarf. Way to go parentals!!
The Newton family is off to take part in another one of our Christmas traditions: the movies!!
Ho, Ho, Ho!! xoxo, E
