Starbucks App – I recently discovered the Starbucks app and i love it! I’m able to order my coffee and just walk into the store (or go to the drive thru) and pick up my order. It’s fast and super easy!

Seattle’s Best Coffee House Blend – When i’m not going to Starbucks i love drinking the House Blend coffee from Seattle’s Best Coffee. If you like something not too strong, with a smooth flavor, you would love this coffee.

Try Treats – I bought the monthly subscription service back at the end of December as a Christmas gift for the kids. We really have loved getting the treats from a different country every month. February we got treats from Ireland and they were fantastic!!

Teaching Textbooks – In February we switched my oldest son from Math-You-See to Teaching Textbooks and it’s been wonderful. He was really struggling with Algebra 1, even after watching the DVD lesson he would end up needing tremendous help with his worksheets. Finally we decided to make the switch and it’s been really great. He is understanding his math so much more!

January Favorites

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing all my favorite things from January.

Jan favs 2019

Water w/ lemons – In December I was loving water with cranberries in it, but in January lemons in my water were my jam!

Mothering From Scratch – This was such a good book, filled with valuable information about mothering. I highly recommend it! (While i was finding it on Amazon to link, i noticed it was on sale for $5, it is regularly priced at $15. What a great deal!)

51uozeqhhgl._sx322_bo1,204,203,200_

Bullet Journaling – I love, love, love bullet journaling! Every morning in January i made time to spend bullet journaling. I have this bullet journal and i’m using these markers!

bullet journal 1

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation – This foundation is my new favorite, i bought it in December and have been using it ever since. It’s a little bit on the pricey side, but the coverage is amazing! It’s well worth the price in my opinion! (Tip: I recommend buying this at a beauty store {Ulta or Sephora} because Amazon’s price is like $20 more expensive!)

Running on my Treadmill – That is all i did in January for my work outs, was running on my treadmill!! I love having a treadmill, because there is no way i could go to a gym regularly or run outside regularly. It’s so convenient to have a treadmill at home.

Ordering on Costco.com – Costco will ship non-perishable items to your house in 2 days with free shipping on orders over $75! I really enjoy this option in winter months, where maybe i can’t get out of the house (snowy days) or the flu is going around and i don’t want to risk getting sick. I took advantage of online ordering twice last month!

Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin, & Nails Gummies – Although i don’t see a major difference yet, i think my fingernails have been growing a little more quickly. It’s only been a month, so i’m going to keep taking them and see what happens. Plus they taste yummy!

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing some of my favorite things from December 2018.

december favorites 2018

Water & Cranberries – I’ve been adding a couple cranberries to my water lately and i’m loving it. It gives it just a slight sweet taste, which helps me drink more.

 

Perfectly Posh Lotion – This is the only lotion that doesn’t sting when i apply it to my dry cracked hands. Plus the smell of Posh Boss is amazing. (*No, I do not sell their products, just sharing what i like.*)

Olay Face Moisturizer – My skin has been so dry because of the winter weather, that i am so glad i found this product. I just started using it so i can’t give a full review yet, but the times i have used it, i sure to feel a difference.

Jesus Calling For Christmas – This book is very well written and the pictures are breathtakingly beautiful. I really liked how short each message was, because i was so busy last month that it was nice i could just get a minute or two here to read each message.

516rpqse+wl._sx423_bo1,204,203,200_

Bernat Super Chunky Yarn – I’ve been working on making each of my children a blanket, and i am really loving the super chunky yarn. Right now i’m using a Sea Foam Print on a blanket for Lincoln.

WOW Hits 2019 – I switched over to Christian music almost a year ago. We got this CD for Christmas and i really do love every song on it.

DAVIDsTEA – We did the 24 Tea Advent Calendar and found some really yummy teas. The Candy Cane Crush was probably my favorite out of them all.

Top 10 Favorite Christmas Movies {Blogmas Day 8}

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing my top 10 favorite Christmas movies…

favorite christmas movies

In no particular order…

It’s a Wonderful Life – “An angel helps a compassionate but despairingly frustrated businessman by showing what life would have been like if he never existed.” – I absolutely love this movie! I always watch it with a box of tissues next to me, because it gets me every time.

518356GQPGL._SY445_

The Bishop’s Wife – “This Christmastime angelic intervention sparkles with good humor as Dudley the angel is sent to help a bishop and his wife survive their attempt to finance a new cathedral.” – Anything with Cary Grant in it is a good movie in my book!

51FSZEPMN6L._SY445_

Christmas With The Kranks – “Fed up with the commercial aspects of Christmas, particularly all the money spent, and alone for the holiday for the first time in decades, as their daughter has just joined the Peace Corps, grumpy Luther Krank and his sweet wife, Nora, decide to skip Christmas this year and forgo the gifts, the tree, the decorations, the cards, the parties, and to spend the dollars saved on a 10-day Caribbean cruise.” – A funny Christmas movie for the whole family.

61JLBcsxwEL._SY445_

How The Grinch Stole Christmas – “He’s a crabby Christmas hater (for some silly reason). Can this green-tinted meanie steal everyone’s holiday season?” – I love the Jim Carrey version of this classic story.

51E5VAMACNL._SY445_

White Christmas – “These song and dance men bring some holiday cheer to sunny Florida. And woo a couple of lovely ladies in the process.” – Good story line and the singing is wonderful!

51p0oFR+pQL._SY445_

The Santa Claus 1 & 2 – “A bizarre twist of fate transforms a divorced dad into the new Santa.” – I’m not sure why i love these movies so much, but i do. Probably because Tim Allen is a comedic genius.

51SY0AWCGBL._SY445_

Elf – “One Christmas Eve a long time ago, a baby crawled into Santa’s bag of toys Raised as an elf. Buddy goes looking for his true place in the world–in New York City.” – I can pretty much quote this entire movie!! It’s an all time family favorite!!

51NTVJQuowL._SX342_

A Christmas Carol – “When three ghosts take penny-pinching Scrooge on an eye-opening journey, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas — but he must act on it before it’s too late.” – I just love this movie.

51rEhyKpP6L._SY445_

Home Alone – “When little Kevin McCallister is accidentally left behind when his family dashes off on a Christmas trip, he is left to defend his family’s home from two bumbling burglars until the relatives return.” – Some of the language and stuff i am not a fan of in this movie, but it’s a classic and i grew up watching it, so it made the list.

A1T+lZ6iUZL._SY445_

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – “The comic misadventures of the beleaguered Griswold family continue in this latest “Vacation” outing, the third and most successful of the series.” – This is another one that i can pretty much quote the entire movie.
