    Default What Did You Get Yourself For The Holidays?

    So...what did everyone get themselves for the holidays?

    I got my boyfriend this cool frame and I was going to put a nice picture of us in it, but we broke up a few days ago, so I put a cute picture of me and Corky in it, wrapped it up, and put it with all the other presents

    Here's the frame:

    And the picture I put in it:

    So what about you guys? What'd you get yourself?

    Not really for the holidays. I got a new horse trailer and colic surgery for my youngest horse. With any luck, both gifts should last me for a long, long time.

    I ordered myself a pair of tall boots that probably won't fit my huge calves and dogs blankets from Dover for each of the dogs. And now I'm a bit peeved with Dover because apparently two (out of three) of the blankets ordered are back-ordered until February and I have to wonder why they showed up as "in stock" in my cart. Annoyed.

    A new wheelbarrow...True Temper...sad but true. Budget constraints and all, I'm thrilled to have it.

    Fleece lined boots, and the calves taken in so I can actually wear them. I wish they were taller but they are still pretty cute.

    And a new broodmare.

    Well I bought myself a new vacuum last Thursday. Turned out to he too heavy and too bulky, so returned it today to swap for a different model. This one's too wimpy and cheaply made. *sigh* So far I suck at getting myself a present.
