Christmas Loot - The Hubs's Edition

In the previous installment of Christmas Loot, I shared the four gifts that were my favorite this holiday season.

In this post, I'll share those gifts that The Hubs got that he was super excited about. (Side note: None of the gifts I gave The Hubs made the top 4 since I had already bought him this Craftsman toolchest for his birthday in October).

Gift from The Bro
While opening presents on Christmas Day at The Hubs's family's place, he received some strange gifts including conduit fittings and a wiring book. I was a bit confused, but apparently The Hubs knew what was coming! Finally, two long skinny packages were revealed. Inside were FLUORESCENT LIGHTS for our garage.

The Hubs had asked for these since the lights we currently have in our garage are less than stellar. He enjoys working on projects in the garage and uses it as his workshop since we don't have enough space to actually park a car in it. He's also going to LOVE learning how to install the lighting himself with his brother's help!

Gifts from The Fam
The Hubs and I have had a Wii for over a year. We only had a couple of games and really don't find much time to play with it. The Hubs though asked for (and received) two Wii Games this holiday season.

We played the games with the family on Christmas and had a really great time! They brought us back to the days of the original Nintendo. The Hubs also is excited to have these games cause he figures he can play them while I'm preoccupied blogging!

Another computer related gift The Hubs asked for was the Windows 7 upgrade for his operating system.

He has it on his work computer and really likes it. We'll see how hard it is to actually install. Hopefully, its not as complicated or crappy as Vista was....

Gifts for Ourselves
The Hubs ended up buying a very BIG gift for himself for Christmas this year...one that hopefully he will use many many times in the years to come.
 A DeWalt 12" Double Bevel Compoud Sliding Miter Saw! His main reason for getting this saw was to make the corner cuts for the crown molding he is currently installing in our bedroom. He's eventually going to install crown molding throughout the house, so this saw is definitely going to come in handy. It will also be the perfect tool for any other woodworking projects he plans on tackling, which is something he really enjoys doing (especially now that he will have brand spankin' new fluorescent lights to light the garage!).

The final installment in the Christmas Loot series will feature our favorite gifts that The Hubs and I received together as a couple.


  1. Ooooh! good stuff. We could use some flourescent lights in our garage. Should've thought of that before xmas! I loved Super Mario Bros. for the Wii. I got Super Mario Galaxy 2 this Christmas! I'm hooked.

  2. We are WAY behind on what's hot on the Wii. Speaking of which, don't you have a baby you should be taking care of?? Have you figured out how to nurse and play Wii at the same time?? hehe :-)
