Time to brag about what the holidays brought. I got some undershirts, underwear, a Wii, and oh yeah, a fiance. laugh

She didn't get the binoculars that the box promised, but the ring inside hopefully made up for that.

What about everyone else?

I got myself around 10 pair of smartwools on sale smile
The inlaws got us a lantern w/case and mantels we had been wanting.

Misc. Blu-Ray movies I had been holding off on getting, and other goodies. I think I`m going to get myself a new knife with my amazon gift cards soon. Not 100%, or tools!!

Congrats MDinana!

Congratulations on being accepted to be a someone's future husband. Talk about THE never-ending survival situation!! crazy

Along with my daughter coming home from NYC (with her boyfriend in tow),I am the happy recipient of some new socks, a swinging magnetic decision-maker, a Ryobi 18V radio, a Ryobi right angle close quarter 18V drill, a WalMart-brand "Under Armour" shirt, some Hershey miniatures, some chocolate non-pariels (my favorite),and a Thermo-Lite Bivy 2.0.

Now, I have to figure how to use the tin the fruitcake-sized coffee cake my mother-in-law sent us into a pocket-sized survival tin. It may be a tough fit, but I will give it a whirl. confused

Thanks everyone!

Looks like you folks cleaned up! I've been treating myself to some stuff recently, not nothing BOB-related this Xmas. Looks like I get the fun of making a new BOB soon! Not that out house-stuff doesn't include some concessions for her.

New monitor for my PC (19.5 LCD, much nicer than the 17" CRT it replaces), some other computer bits, and a copy of Old Man Wolverine.

Congratulations on the fiancee! Smart thinking, it'll be a lot easier to remember when you popped the question.

I had a good score:

Sidenote: the C.O Biglow shaving cream is the BEST EVER for those of you old school gents who apply the cream with a badger brush and shave with a real razor rather than some multi-bladed piece of plastic and hype.
