Oh yeah, I can be a whore too

Wha?

Oh, I can't wait to see the Google hits on this one.

Well. OK. The whore thing.

That Chick Over There is having her second annual Whore Your Loot post, in which she shamelessly shows everything she got for Christmas.

She is allowing Hanukkah gifts we already got -- or even birthday gifts for us poor, deprived December birthday babies.

So with no further ado, my loot (received well before Dec. 25, just for the sake of full disclosure):

From my parents: an unbelievably beautiful pair of earrings



From the Wonderhubby: a gift certificate for a 90-minute massage!!! (oh the decadence!!)

From the Drummer Man and his girlfriend: a gift certificate to a delish Italian restaurant (large enough, by the way, to have them come with us!)

From Z-man: Stephen Colbert's book "I Am an American and You Can Too" and a dvd of the first season of "Desperate Housewives"!

From J-bear: a gift card for iTunes (yay for some new music!!)

From the Drama King: one of my favorite gifts ... a design-your-own Starbucks card. This is how I designed it:


Please note it "orders" my favorite crack (after the eggnog season is over): a half-caf cinnamon dolce latte with whip!

And from my Roo-girl, a project she has worked on for several months, an extra-credit project that she selected and worked on when her regular art class projects were complete. A stained-glass nightlight she "paid for" both in dollars and small cuts and injuries.


Beautiful, huh? I am a lucky mommy.

Please note, these were all birthday presents. Hanukkah? Not so much. In my whore'ish moments, I pout because everyone else in the family gets a birthday present AND a Hanukkah present. But ...

I am a big girl. And I will not pout.

Much.

Ah, the curse of the December birthday. And yet, you got more for your birthday than I usually do. Of course I always say I don't really want anything. I like surprises, but I'm just as happy to call the new tennis shoes I needed my b-day present. Same with Christmas. Oh, but I got a big Christmas present this year. And dh with the December birthday got very little for his b-day or Christmas from me. He insisted that I not get him anything and that we use the money on that camera. I felt guilty and got him a few little things and I plan to make it up to him in many, many ways;o)
You got some very cool presents, but I especially like that lamp Roo Girl made. Oh, and the massage. That would be ,mmmm, so nice. Who doesn't love coffee and dinner out? Wonderful gifts all. The earrings are absolutely gorgeous, even for someone like me who's not so much into jewelry.
