Annual Christmas Inventory

I've gotten into this weird habit over the years of listing everything I got for Christmas (and my birthday). For whatever reason, I enjoy having the inventory.

I got a lot of good stuff this year but was still left wanting. As most of my focus for the past two years has been on exercise, naturally I wanted mostly exercise tools. I wanted a stability ball, yoga mat, sports bras, workout tanks, and workout capris. I also had my heart set on some fashion boots. But I did get the most important exercise tool I wanted--a BodyBugg! I am loving it so far.

So here is my list, starting with what my cute students got me.

  • Hershey special dark giant chocolate bar
  • Tuck Everlasting
  • Coke Zero
  • Dark chocolate and milk chocolate bar with almonds
  • Hard candy caramels
  • Ghirardelli caramel chocolate bar
  • Cookies
  • Pay Day candy bar
  • Winder Farms chocolate chip cookies
  • Mini stocking with chocolates
  • Christmas cards from a few students
I am definitely set on the candy front. Thanks, kiddos!

  • Strap perfect (I wanted this too)
  • Lunch at Cafe Rio, a day at The Getty, dinner at P.F. Chang's, Pinkberry twice, etc. 

And I haven't gotten to exchange presents with a few more friends, so there's more to come. 

Overall I have accumulated a large amount of stuff, more than I know what to do with. And somehow spent a half an hour revamping my Amazon wish list. What? My birthday is coming up. 

I've got another blog coming soon: a review of 2012 in which I revisit my failed resolutions and talk about all of the things I didn't accomplish. The tides are changing though folks. I'm ready.
