I think it depends how big your family is. My friend, for example, gets a truck load of presents from her gigantic family and they all get each other realy nice gifts. Plus her immediate family buy each other a lot. Like a sack full for stocking gifts and then mains gifts etc.

Whereas in my family, its basically just my parents and I who buy gifts for each other and a little something (voucher) from my grandparents.

murrcat, I spent the longest time trying to decide between the fitbit & the fuel band. How do you like it? I decided on the fitbit b/c I thought it would blend more easily for daily wearing.

I got a couple of gift cards, a scarf, and some pjs.

(I bought myself the fitbit, some peppermint bark, and an origins gift set and wrapped them up, too.... :P )

it's nifty, I don't really know yet because I've only had it three days lol.

Okay one thing I'm not sure about is, you have fuel points (not the same as steps, I think 2 steps is a fuel point maybe) anyway

On thursday I walked "2.5" miles according to my pedometer on it, and reached my fuel goal for the day. Casually just to be casually doing things and not really tryin to walk 2.5, this was at the end of the day when I reached my goal.

Today, I ran 3.5 miles (my band (you can use an app to see what it can't show) said I ran 3.5 miles) but I only had half the fuel points. So...I'm not sure if maybe it won't give you all the points for one exercise because it wants to motivate you to do more stuff or separately through out the day OR, I was running without moving my arm at all. hhahahaahahah maybe that's why but I think I move my arms when I run....

Maybe it has to do with the number of steps combined with the time it took to get to that number? Like 2.5 miles over the course of the day means you're generally more active over all. Where as 3.5 miles in...what...45 minutes to an hour concentrates your exertion to a very short time frame and not constant activity throughout the day, so the fuel points are less even though the distance was longer.

Did that make any sense? Apparently I'm not communicating well today.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

yes. That's what I was trying to say also, I think my brain is foreign so that when It translates into English it doesn't make sense.....I just don't know what language my brain is speaking. (alien language)

I received the love of my family and a very peaceful Christmas dinner. Everyone got along and there was no fighting, no disagreeing, and no tension. Score!

Money, gift cards, work clothes, pashmina, tea infuser and loose tea, diamond hoop earrings, gold and emerald stud earrings (the earrings were from hubby), Gucci handbag, Coach handbag, pearl necklace, various other small items - costume bangles, bath stuff, candy, socks etc.

My older son was so proud of what he got me - a little box he had filled with little bracelets he made, and things he bought at the dollar store with his own money - bath beads, a scarf, a pen, soap etc. So sweet. Both kids had made framed photos of themselves at school/day care as well.

The best part of gift-giving was watching the kids' reactions to their gifts, and being together as extended family.

Sigi, do you wear leggings or something under the skirt? I've never seen anything like that!

I got a massive Ikea gift card which is what's wanted, Visa cards, PJ's, some books (looking forward to the Casey Anthony one!) a coffee mug and French press, chocolates, Lulu Lemon gift card, lotto tickets....I know I'm missing some things but the Ikea card is what I'm pumped about!

You wear your normal clothes under the skirt. They're very popular here in Anchorage. It's a nice way to keep your lower half warm in the winter when you're out and about, but you're not married to it like you would be to a full length coat. If I end up at the mall, I can take it off and leave it at my car.
