Christmas Day.
I know what I'm getting for Christmas from DH and I want it NOW!

I'm not impressed with him for leaving the receipt lying about. At least I didn't actually see the present, he caved under my nagging to wrap it before I gave into the temptation to take a peep.

DP getting home from work tonight to start his holidays. Christmas we're just doing our own thing swimming by the pool and stuff. Boxing day lunch with my family. Most of all I'm looking forward to Friday, we're going out for a kidfree dinner while some friends watch our kids.
