Girl Chat {December 2017}

Happy Thursday everyone!! I cannot believe this is the last link up of our Girl Chat for 2017!! That's just crazy to think about, sure makes you realize how fast time goes!

Today's topic is all about the greatest gift you ever received. Now of course my kids are my greatest gifts I have ever received, but today I'm talking about some other fun gifts from the past.

I'm taking this waaaaaaaaaay back today - like to 1989 when I was 5 and my sister was 9. We had the best Christmas ever that year! We were obsessed with those Precious Palaces playsets - anyone remember these?? Those little toy houses that had magnetic keys that activated lights, locks, and other stuff?  Well that Christmas, our parents bought us the entire village!!!! I know it's not all about gifts, but as little kids, my sister and I were so freaking excited and to this day that Christmas stands out the most in my head. It was so magical to receive all of those!!

I even got my Mom to pull out some old pictures #thathair #yourewelcome

Another Christmas gift that was the absolute best was when my Mom bought me a Talkboy - yeah, the same one that was in Home Alone 2. I was obsessed and begged and begged for one and I remember flipping out when I got it!! I kind of wish I still had that, I know Brayden would LOVE it!

The last best gift (yeah, I cheated and am sharing 3 of the best gifts I've ever received) was my engagement ring. Rick proposed December 15th 2007 -  It was a magical night in Chicago with snow falling and he got down on one knee in Millennium Park, overlooking the ice skating rink. My ring is so special to me as it symbolizes our love and dedication to each other. I've loved that ring for 10 years and now I'm so sad to say at the moment, we cannot locate it. Miss Avery took it (along with my band) out of my room the other day and hours later I realized it was gone. By then she had no idea where it was and ever since I  have turned our house upside down looking in all the logical and also the most random places a toddler would put them with no luck. I've begged her to tell me where they are but she just keeps saying "I don't know Mama" and "Don't worry, they'll show up Mama" Ughhh if only!! Fingers crossed they show up here soon - new rings aren't exactly in the budget. I guess I can always hit up Claires šŸ˜œ

(don't mind my nails, they need to be done!)

 I can't wait to read about everyone's favorite gifts!!! We hope you will link up below!
