Early xmas presents

I got two early Christmas presents last night. Hubby got me a super nice free weight set (from 5 lbs to 50 lbs) AND a 32 inch flat screen TV AND my own DVR (would have been nice to hook it up to the existing one we have since my programs are already set to record there but that was not electronically possible). I worked out this morning and then set about rearranging my gym. It's really shaping up. I think about the only thing left is to get a bench. Going to check the after xmas sales for one of those.

I've gotten lots of fitness stuff this year... a step (still need to buy videos), a 15 lb medicine ball, and these most recent gifts. I'm stoked!

He got a LOT of clothes and new shoes. He loves the Birkenstock style sandals but buys the cheapie ones from Walmart. He wears them everywhere and they are actually hot-glued together because they have fallen apart so many times. I splurged on two pairs of real Birkenstocks and also some really nice convertible pants from Sierra Trading post (thank you for posting about that place - never knew about it til you mentioned it here). Rest of his presents are clothes that I got on ridiculous sales. I walked out of Kohl's one day with 3 pairs of shorts and 1 shirt for $25. I love getting deals like that.

Real birkenstocks are a great present if he's been wearing fake ones.

If you lived in Northern California you could come to my house and pick up a whole weight bench with all of the weights and accessories.
