What I Got For Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my family to yours!  The holiday season is crazy with my large family, that is even larger since getting married. I wanted to get on here and show some of the items that I got for Christmas and I will link where to purchase them (if I know where).

So here we go:


First off, Jeremy's Mom, Sandy, Got us this amazing sign that I absolutely LOVE and put on the wall as soon as we got home Christmas day! I mean, seriously, how gorgeous is this! (I am not sure where it is from but I *think* it is Hobby Lobby.)



Next, I got a new and updated Kindle. I have had my Kindle 2 for 8 years this Christmas but it was getting to the point that I could not read for longer than an hour without the words starting to fade away. Luckily, I got a new Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas. Since then I have been KILLING my 2017 Reading Challenge on Good Reads so far. I am so excited and I am loving it so far. You can purchase this from Amazon.com or really any of the big box retailers that carry electronics (i.e. Walmart, Best Buy, Target, etc.)






I am excited to announce that Jeremy and I are joining the trend of going back Analog to the Vinyl Era. We got a Crosley Cruiser Record Player for Christmas. I am now obsessed with finding a nice set up to have this in our living room and maybe putting an additional one in our bedroom. I already have 4 records purchased sine Christmas. **Amazon has the BEST prices on records BTW!**









My amazing Husband knows me so well. He got me all Harry Potter Themed gifts mostly this year. He got me the Mole Skin limited edition notebook that I hope to put in use for planning for this new year. He also purchased me something I have been looking forward to purchasing for so long, The Lumos Jewelry line Charm Bracelet and the Hogwarts Charm. I can not explain how thoughtful and wonderful all of these gifts were for me. 

Jeremy knows me so well and this was just so perfect for me. Thank you, my love! (These are all available from Barnes and Noble.)                                  








 Jeremy got a gift that I consider to be for both of us. He got the ECHO Dot from Amazon. It is a super fun item to add to our Smart Home system, which we have been working on developing for the last year. I am excited to get more items that are compatible to our Echo Dot.



Also, I got a gift that went along with the ECHO Dot, Amazon Prime for a year! It goes along great with the ECHO Dot but Also my Kindle Paperwhite. I can not recommend Amazon Prime enough! The new Prime Reading system is so amazing and the integration with Audible is super nice. I can not explain enough how much I love Amazon Prime.





I have been wanting a makeup mirror for a while and I finally got one for Christmas. I got a Conair one that is a smaller one, which is perfect for our shared bathroom vanity with double sinks. There are so many out there that I don't think it matters which one you get as long as it works for your set up.

Also, I got a refill on my favorite Highlighter, Benefit's Watt's up!








 I have been doing Shakes for breakfast and lunch every day as part of my weight loss journey and I have been dying for a new, stronger blender.  I was using the Magic Bullet before but I got the NutriBullet 900. I LOVE this blender. It is definitely faster and quieter that my previous model. I am so excited to have this newer model and since it is something I use every single day, it is so worth it.

> I have been on a MAJOR Gilmore Girls kick during this past year, especially after the announcement of the new Netflix Year In The Life series. My sister, Lacey, is the biggest Gilmore Girls fans ever and we both received matching #SquadGoals Sweatshirts by Jadelynn Brooke. I love their sweatshirts. I already owned the Gossip Girl #Squadgoals shirt and I wear it SO often. I never thought I would wear it as much as I do. They have a HUGE selection of the #SquadGoals Sweatshirts and Tshirts on their website, so go set them out. Also as part of this kick, I got Lauren Graham's new book, Talking as Fast as I Can, and I can't wait to read it!



Jeremy also got me a bigger gift that I am so excited to use during the summer on our trip to the beach. It is a JBL Xtreme Bluetooth speaker. It is waterproof and also serves as a battery pack type charger for your phone and other devices when you are out. I'm excited to use it on our vacation as well as around the house when I am cleaning. I LOVE Listening to Music while I clean and do all of my chores around the house. I know I will get SO many hours of use out of this gift. He sure knows how to give a great gift!











We are so lucky and received SO many amazing gifts but I wanted to just share a few that I am so excited about and I thought everyone else might want to know about and get their hands on.

Thank you so much for reading and I will Post more soon! BYE!
