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!**
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.
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!
