Now that Hanukkah and Christmas are over, I can finally take it easy. Time to stow away all the gift-wrapping supplies, take down the holiday decorations and polish off the remaining holiday treats. I also need to tidy up the place and get organized. My goal is to get things in order before turning the calendar to 2015. As I aim to take it nice and easy over the next week, I might as well dress accordingly. What’s easier than a pair of leggings and a loose fitting chambray?
A funny little Christmas morning story for you guys. On Christmas morning, Dan brought me breakfast in bed: a bowl of Lucky Charms and an iced latte. He then handed me an envelope that contained my Christmas present. As he handed me the card, he apologized for his lack of creativity this year. Like a kid, I tore the envelope apart to discover a funny Hanukkah card and a couple of gift cards to Nordstrom. Immediately, my mind started racing over what I could buy. I was pretty excited about the gift but Dan kept on apologizing. Finally, we got out of bed. I walked into the kitchen, dropped my glass in the sink and was looking for matches to light a candle. All of a sudden I hear a very agitated “are you serious? turn around.” So I turned around to face Dan and asked if there was something in my hair. He looked confused and told me to look down. And there IT was, the coveted Manasur Gavriel bucket bag. I squealed with excitement!
I don’t know how I didn’t see it. Dan said I literally walked all around the bag. He thought I was joking by ignoring the bag. And yes, I was wearing my glasses!!! So I made him the spill the beans on how he was able to get his hands on one, as I was trying on my own to nab one. He called each stockist listed on the website until he found a store that would put him on the waiting list. This was back in October. Finally, this bag shipped from Cali with love and now it’s all mine. He definitely wins hubby of the year award!
