Favorite 2011 Christmas Present

In an attempt to blog more often, I have been following BlogHerBlogging on Twitter to get the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) Prompt of the Day.  Today's prompt was as follows: "What is your favorite start-of-the-year tradition?"  I don't do much at the beginning of the year although I do feel refreshed thinking about all the things I would like to do throughout the next 12 months.  Goals just seem so possible during the first week of January.  I don't think I can expound much more on that topic, so I decided to share my favorite Christmas present from this past year!

My mom and dad bought a gift for Howard and me.  I had absolutely no clue what it was, so it was truly such a surprise as we opened it!

They bought us the Philips Sonicare toothbrush!  I'm so excited to have it.  I knew I wanted to get it, but I just couldn't justify the cost.  Getting it as a gift is the perfect thing!  I absolutely love practical gifts.  No frills and no thrills, remember?

The little tag that my mom put on the wrapping paper made it even better.  Thanks, Mom!  (Hehe, she reads my blog!)


  1. Rachel-- you are gonna love the Sonicare--it's life changing :) Brush away!

  2. I told my co-workers about the present and they were like, huh? They just don't get it! I love our present. I can't wait to use it when we're married :)
