This year with ALL the stress I didn't wrap everyone elses gifts as pretty as I did Zach's...I skipped bows and cute paper but as long as his looked good that's what counts right?
Can you tell which ones I wrapped?
Zach with the presents he got me
And the ones I got him :)
supposedly the best goggles on the market - can't wait for some lap swimming
I know this is random but I have a "thing" for collarbones. I just love them and LOVE when necklaces hit right at the bone. I think it's just sexy for some reason! I used to watch Private Practice but quit watching it after I realized I spent more time checking out all the jewelry the characters wore more than I paid attention to the story line. I saw on a friend's facebook (thanks Larissa!) that she had a pretty angel wing necklace that hit at the exact spot I want one to hit so I asked her where she got it and discovered a new favorite website: www.dogeared.com Casey's boyfriend, Jordan, actually got her one for her birthday and I'm excited that I get to join the club! I sent Zach a bunch of ones I liked and wanted him to pick out one that he thought was meaningful and I love it!
each necklace has a different meaning
he got me a compass since (duh) I LOVE to travel!
looks good huh?
Zach ALWAYS loses screws and nails so this awesome bracelet will keep them nearby for him
ready for some laying out!
we saw the guys on The Bachelor Pad wearing vests so you know Zach had to have one
Yes, I bought CROCS! They are cool looking though huh?
Yup, he made me a Build-A-Bear.
Anyways, the bear is supposed to be my stand-in Zach to cuddle with when he's out of town and we decided to name him like we did our cat. We named the cat Zeke b/c it was a name that Zach wanted to name our son and I hated it so I picked a boy name that I really like but Zach hates for the bear: Cohen :)
I surprised Zach with a BIG tool storage chest (the bottom part was waaaaay to heavy to bring with us)
All the presents Zach got! He got hooked up!!!Sony HX1 and it's awesome! I'm going to be selling my old camera if anyone is interested (it's a Sony H50). I have 2 of everything (batteries, battery chargers, straps, etc) for it which is a plus and the original box and everything!
All my gifts (yes, Rachael, the pole thing is that extended tri-pod thing you told me I need from last year!)video of Zach reading all the tags I wrote for him and a video of me reading all the tags he wrote for me :)
After all the opening it was time for breakfast...and of course that means Zach's pancakes! And a good opportunity to use my new extended tripod! We take SO many pictures of each other on our own because we don't like the way it looks to have one person hold out their arm and take it...and now we don't have to! Isn't it awesome?
I love this for purse storage maybe?
We LOVE this gray color and they make it in a cover for our sectional couch! I think it'll look AWESOME and we need to eventually buy an extra chair for the living room too
he loves those shopping carts :)our Labor Day trip I thought it'd be fun to mix it up from the norm (which would be Maggiano's or Cheesecake Factory) and go there! It took us AGES to find it but Zach loved it and we both ate our entire white pizzas without any help :)
We rented a movie for the night (The Men who Stare at Goats...random) and just relaxed. The next morning we did the timeshare presentation (and got $100 cash for our gift yay!) then headed home so Zach could make it back for his doctors appointment for his back. It was a short trip (only 2 nights) but it was fun and a much needed break for us both! Yay for Christmas!
