First off, Merry Christmas to you all! I hope your Christmas 2010 has been terrific!

I'm sitting here with a happy Cody kitten in my lap, purring away. My furry boy and I have had a wonderful Christmas! He got kitty treats, new crinkle ball toys, and felt fishies to bat around.

My work Secret Santa rocked and got me yarn, a new journal and pen, candy, and other little things. My dear [ profile] newdaydawning gave me a gift certificate to get yarn, and I am so psyched to pick my new yarn for knitting! ;)

My awesome parents killed me with their gifts this year. I got tons of makeup from Avon and Sephora (yay!) and body stuff from Avon and The Body Shop. My mom got me a gorgeous new silver necklace with an S on it, and a pair of handmade silver earrings with the word 'read' hand-stamped on one, and 'write' stamped on the other. I am so in love! She got me a new red watch as well. My dad got me the San Francisco Giants Champiionship DVD, a Giants iPhone case (squee!), and a gorgeous new bag for school. They both got me my favorite perfume (Britney's "Curious"), a purse, "The Blind Side" on DVD, and a new silver ring with a gold heart inlaid in it. But the BIG gift this year was a brand new Cruz e-reader. Yay for e-books!! I'm so excited! I got a nifty red case with it, and of course, now I need to name the thing. I most likely will stick with a Giants theme. (I already have Cody the kitten, Nate the iPhone, Timmy the iPod, Aaron the Acer laptop, and a stuffed Pablo the Panda). Maybe Aubrey the e-reader. Hahaha.

But--this was an amazing Christmas. I love my parents and my friends so very much. This Christmas Day was excellent as well. While Mom cooked dinner, the Dad and I went to the movies and saw "True Grit". Awesome movie. Not usually my kind of film, but I really liked this one! Came home and had a great prime rib dinner and watched fun baseball countdowns on the MLB Network. Heh.

Anyway. Hope you all have had a wonderful holiday so far! Love to you all and your families!

What do you like from Sephora? Whenever I go in there I always get so overwhelmed and don't even know where to start!

I got an eReader for Christmas this year too! Glad to hear you liked True Grit, my dad wants the two of us to go as well, so I'm jazzed up from this rec!

Let's see. I really like Sephora's line of stuff. Their lip glosses and nail polishes are great, as are their eye shadows. I too, get really overwhelmed with all the other brands in there! It freaks me out. ;) Once in awhile I like stuff by Tarte, Stila, and Urban Decay, but I tend to stick with the Sephora seems to be so much easier! haha. Of course, any thing of the BareMinerals stuff is terrific too...lightweight, but pretty.

And I really liked True Grit a lot. The cast is amazing, and the entire movie is just really good. I was surprised, to be honest.

Yay for eReaders! Which one did you get? I'm excited to get books this way now too. =)

Thank you! That's so helpful! I will let you know if I make any progress on my next visit to Sephora!

I got the Kindle, which I'm really stoked about! The only thing I don't like is that I can't share books with anyone.
