Tootin' My Own Horn

Seriously, there is nothing better than chosing a the perfect gift for someone. It is one of my favorite parts of Christmas.

My step-mom leaves for the entire month of December (a whole different blog post, for a day when I'm not feeling all heartwarmed and stuff), and since I had her name for our family gift exchange this year, this allowed me be the procrastinator I love to be am. Sure, I casually looked around for gift ideas pre Christmas. But I didn't do the actual committing and buying until last week.

I received two of my purchases in the mail, yesterday and today.

As a sidenote, can I say how much I lurve (is that word so passé?) me some online shopping?! Aside from a whole bunch of diapers I bought online for Squeak about 3 years ago, I haven't really delved into the world of online shopping much. But boy is it fun! Shopping in my (same pair for the third day straight) pajamas while the kids sleep? Getting package after package addressed to me in my little mailbox, day after day? I could get into some serious trouble there, folks.


As I leafed through the pages of one of my purchases, I got almost giddy. I am *so* excited to give my step-mom this present. I just know she will love it. And I thought of it all by my big girl self.

There is little else so thrilling.

Incidentally, if you're wondering, this is the gift which made me feel so satisfied. Step-mom is a Jane Austen fanatic who loves cookbooks. This book + Step-mom = True Love Always. Or at least that's what I'm hoping (expecting).
