The Bee’s Knees

Beeeee Monday…

So, Coach and I were not to exchange gifts for Christmas. But he is a bad boy…he broke the rules. Quite the rebel…. with a cause.

Some of you tried to guess on the B gift…

another boxer? nah.

A crackblackberry? nah.

Not even a Buick, Botox or a bikini wax. ouch to the last two.

For Christmas, he gave me this sweet Bee necklace:


I was surprised. Pleasantly surprised. I was mad too, but I got over it quickly. Jewelry does that to girls.  I had jokingly mentioned in the blog a while ago about a Tiffany Bee necklace. Well what did he do, but look for that one. Luckily for our bank account, it was no longer available and he found this little cutie patootie instead. I LOVES it.

I shall name her Beatrice B.  She is my bestie.

And that is not the only Bee I got for Christmas.

Lo made this sweet Bee bracelet for me. P1040049

I love it as well. Nothing like throwing on a pearl bracelet to class up my jeans and flip flops!! (my daily wardrobe) Her talents never cease to amaze me!

And Linds made this custom tissue box for me.

Yeah, she is awesome.


See the inspirational saying on the top?


“Got an issue? Get a tissue!” She hears that a lot around here.

Remember last year when she made me my own personalized Shank? I am one lucky Mom. 

Don’t hate. Appreciate!

I have been Blessed with a wonderful family. Gosh…just pinch me!!  Ouch, not so hard…I am as fragile as a butterfly!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well and hopefully you did not end up with a houseful of bees…unless that is what you wanted?!?

  3. Oh My Busy Bee Friend.... I love your 'bee' gifts... TOO CUTE.... Coach did great with that bee necklace... SO pretty--and so YOU!!!!! You do have a wonderful family, Suz... Glad you had a great Christmas...

    Such a GREAT "B" word today.

  4. I LOVE the neckless your husband gave you. And that bracelet Lo made nice is that it is homemade with such love of the custom tissue box from adoraable is that? Love that saying "Got an issue, get a tissue." LOVE it! I think I just found me a new saying...:) Yes, you are very blessed to have such a family and I am so happy for you.

    Just so you know, I always say that I am fragile like a flower...:) Love all your bee's Suz! XX Lori

  5. Wowzers! I love that bee more than a blackberry! Your family knows they have the bestest wife/mom in the world. Great b-gifts!

  6. You have the BEST bee family around. I just can't take it. You are a Queen Bee for sure!

  7. You gotta love the kind of bees that just look pretty and don't buzz. Did you know my father was a beekeeper when I was a teenager? Yeah, not pleasant.

    I happen to favor the tissue box myself because it's truly unique. It's a mom thing!

  8. golly, how lucky are you???? I think you have a new profile pic up there too don't you!

  9. I love it! The necklace and bracelet are beautiful! And the saying on the tissue box had me laughing out loud... your girls are JUST as funny as you are!

  12. So cute.. I love the necklace! Love love love! And the bracelet too. And she made it?! Extra special. You have such a wonderful family. Cherish it. So glad you had a wonderful Christmas! : )

  13. This is a great Bee post. I'm glad coach has been forgiven for getting you that present.

  14. Bee-U-T-ful gifts for a Bonkers Belle!! teehee. Your fam was so thoughtful to Bee-stow such gifts on you! Happy New Year Dear Lady!! x-c

  15. This was the perfect letter for you! I love all the thoughtful gifts your family gave you. I always think of you when I am out shopping and see bee "things!"

  16. I would love one of those for my mother who is a therapist. She would get the biggest kick out of it.

    I love the bee necklace! It seems like it really suits you. What a wonderful family you have.

  20. i absolutely love your necklace (oh, and bracelet and issue tissues!) i know... he broke the deal, but he broke it for you... because you are so darn special and he knows it!
