Blog Party - Day 9 - Receiving

Sponsors: Day Nine Momdot Blog Party Question is Brought to you by jaC Jewelry, Cutie Covers and Sassy Baby.

Most unusual gift you have received? Best gift? Do you re-gift?

I really don't have any interesting present stories - good or bad. All of my gifts have been pretty normal. The one thing that comes to my mind, has nothing to do with Christmas but rather my birthday. My parents bought me luggage for my 18th birthday. Nothing says time to move out more than that. Well I guess they could have got me a U-Haul. That would be worse.


And no. I don't re-gift. If it's something I wouldn't want, chances are my friends/family wouldn't want it either. We donate instead.
I can't wait to read what special gifts others have received.

I love your blog. You've got some great stories too. Do your parents live in Wisconsin, or are they just visiting? What part are they from (if they do live there)? I grew up in Superior, WI - right across the bridge from Duluth, MN.

Nice 80's hair dude! Totally awesome! I got my luggage for high school graduation but so did my sister and just about everyone else in our family. Nothing like a "surprise!"
