    My fiance bought me a Kitchenaid stand mixer as well. Soon after we got engaged, it came up in conversation how much I was looking forward to registering for one. He made sure we registered before Christmas so he would know exactly which one I wanted. :)
    But we just got back into town the other night and I haven't had a chance to break it out yet! I can't wait...

    Hubby and I are going to Jamaica in 3 weeks so we decide to do a couples massage and dinner as gifts. I have to say, I won't do that again. Not that I wanted a gift, but I really really like giving things that I know will be appreciated! Every year, I give him underwear, a new wallet, and an annual hunting permit. Plus things he wants. Now he won't have those things he needs!

    That said, I got quite a few nice things from my mom and others. Money, a very cool shrug, a gift cert for my nails, and some decor.

    Oh, they are great for shredding chicken too. Just toss in cooked chicken breasts and turn the mixer on and in seconds it will shred the chicken.

    Dh and I bought a new stereo surround system to replace our 23 year old behemoth.
    I got myself a Surface 2 tablet.

    I'm glad you asked, because if you hadn't, I was going to start a similar thread! My son got me an autographed Peyton Manning mini helmet, complete with certificate of authenticity and display case!! I jumped up and down and screamed with joy! I told him, you just crossed something off my bucket list!

    Hahaha! Scholarteacher, let's see how well you know your Tennessee football. What is one thing that Peyton's younger brother Eli did in his career at Ole Miss that Peyton never did in his career at Tennessee? Sorry, couldn't resist.:rolleyes::lol:

    I got a Fitbit a while ago and I have to say I love it! I just found out they have a scale that syncs with your fitbit but I didn't realize it until I had already told my husband what I wanted for Christmas. There's always next year or my birthday!

    I figured you'd know it.

    Had to put the schooling on hold. Ran out of money and needing to do so reno's on the house. Will get back to it soon though.

    Doing well. Teaching third grade now. Loving the challenge!

    A dear friend gave us his 5' pre-lit artificial tree. This was our first tree since my in-laws passed away many years ago. We decorated it with my departed mother-in-law's beautiful ornaments. It was really lovely and it completely changed our holiday into a celebration.

    I was surprised with a Dooney and Burke bag from my 26 year old son and a Coach tote from my other son and daughter-in-law.
