They say nobody loves you like your emum, but we’d say no one loves you as uniquely as your brothers. Our bros (who adamantly demand to be unnamed on elaney) sent us our valentine in the mail today. A bunch of random free spiff they found around their office and a card that plays music in Spanish. Signed “Roberto.” Nothing says sibling love like total randomness.

We write silly Christmas poems with glee!! Check out elaney and ebrothers’ from Christmas Eve. With gifts of Alabama snuggies for the Bama fans in the house.
‘Twas the night before Glendale,
and all through the state,
not a Bama fan was stirring,
just mourning in hate.
The Bama fans were nestled
All snuggied by the TV,
Nothing to watch
Except for Jeop-ar-dy.
Then all of a sudden, so lively and quick,
They heard on the screen,
the voice of Coach Nick.
More rapid than War eagles, his coarsers they came,
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name:
“Now Ingram! Now Julio! Now Hightower and Trent”
off to Glendale they thought that they went.
To the top of the rankings, to the top of them all,
how could they know, oh how far they would fall.
It was just in a twinkling, a change of events,
a pass was dropped by running back Trent.
Saban was screaming, his clipboard was bent,
because they all knew to Orlando they went.
So Saban was sprung from the game in the end,
and Bama fans everywhere thought of what could have been.
But low and behold in 2010, we are from Auburn
and all we do is WIN!

You’re out of cash money! But, you still. can’t. stop. shopping! Well, no worries…check out restaurant.com where they have $50 gift certificates for good restaurants for $25. Then use the promo code “Holiday” for another 80% off! That’s right…non elaney reading edad just got a $50 gift certificate to one of his ATL favs Taverna Fiorentina for $5!! Booze is not included, so try to strategically get the price so that it just covers apps, entrees, and desserts!

It’s shoes for Christmas Eve! While shopping with emum this weekend, we spotted this little angel from Badgley Mischka just sitting there on the table at Bloomingdales making us fall in love. [Cue the music from "Don't Stop Believin'"...Just a small town girl...], and we started thinking, every girl deserves a pair of festive holiday shoes!! (“We totally deserve this.” – Reader edykes). So, please check out these gorgeous little gold pumps and some that are perhaps even more Christmas-y (and a little bit Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz goes party girl) from Betsey Johnson!!

Will you please sing to me?! We’ve long documented our undying love for Christmas music, and we know you want some suggestions for top picks. A few runner ups…
“All I Want for Christmas is You” – Mariah Carey
“Baby It’s Cold Outside” – Nick & Jess
“Emmanuel” – Amy Grant
“The Birth of Christ” – Boys II Men
“Jingle Bells” – Barbara Streisand
And our absolute all time favorite Christmas song…”Song for a Winter’s Night” – Sarah Mclachlan. Listen Here.
Oh and as a New Year’s bonus, here’s a new song we’ve been digging by Priscilla Ahn, “Dream.” It has the same “let’s cuddle by the fire and drink hot chocolate” sound. Listen Here.

We tackle com-pan-y! Gifts, that is. Let’s do bosses and co-workers. Tackling bosses today. Many of you have asked…”elaney, what should we get our bosses?!?” Well, we have a short answer to this one. Get him / her something nice. There is nothing wrong with a little brown nosing and who better to brown nose than the person that controls your career and your finances. We recommend something that you know you have in common (creating a nice camaraderie) or something that goes along with an out of work hobby (suggests you are also interested in him / her as a person). No lame-o desk trickets up in here. What is our own eboss getting? He loves wine (hmm wonder why we get along…?), so we are getting him a bottle of our favorite nicer wine – Stag’s Leap Cabernet. What are you getting your boss?
