Monthly Favorites | December

The days are sneaking away from me quickly with the fun of the holiday season, so I wanted to go ahead and share my favorites for December before the new year begins! There will be lots of blog content coming in January all about goals and progress and I’m so excited! For now lets have some fun with favorites! 🙂

JustFab

I may be in the minority on this, but I’m not a shoe girl. I enjoy purchasing clothes and handbags, but shoes are more of a necessary item. My collection is pretty much all black or neutral nude, but that gets me through pretty much every event!

My first experience with JustFab was a $17 pair of nude heeled sandals that are perfect for work or play. I placed my second order with JustFab a few days ago because they were running a BOGO free sale — how can you resist!? I’ve had over the knee boots on my wish list for a while now, so it seemed like the perfect time! I also snagged some basic black booties because I’ve pretty much worn out my favorite brown ones. Gotta have a backup, ya know??

I can’t wait to share them once they arrive (should be Saturday!) I’m 5’2 so praying the over the knee boots aren’t actually thigh highs 😉 They’re actually running a 50% off sale right now, so treat yourself girl!

Pretzel Treats

These were super easy to make and SO delicious! I was trying to figure out a good treat to give to neighbors and coworkers as a little holiday gift and these were it! I wanted something that would be affordable, yummy, and not spark any common allergies (I would have loved to do something peanut or peanut butter related, but didn’t want anyone to have issues).

The chocolate covered pretzels fit the bill perfectly! With just 3 ingredients needed, they were easy to make and affordable to purchase. I’ll share more in depth on these treats soon (don’t want to completely give it away for any recipients reading!), but you’ll love em!

Crockpot Recipes

I know that the Instant Pot is all the rage right now, and I would still love to give it a go, but my Crockpot will always be my MVP! There’s just something about throwing a bunch of ingredients in the pot and letting them cook all day. No fuss. All deliciousness.

Two recipes I’ll be sharing with you soon: Crockpot chili and Crockpot hot chocolate. One is an old faithful and one is a new-to-me recipe. How about I put together a Winter Must Haves Recipe post!?

Glass Water Bottle

We have WAY too many water bottles in our house, but a glass water bottle is an absolute must have! I found one at Target and its become my go to. Of course mine is pink, but there are a ton of colors! Drinks just taste better out of a glass bottle, do you agree?

They’re also necessary if you’re adding essential oils or citrus to your water. Essential oils and citrus fruits like lemon can actually erode the material, so don’t use a plastic bottle! Glass or stainless steel are the way to go. Many oils are not safe for internal use, and others should be used with caution

Christmas Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’ve always loved Christmas: the lights, the treats, the gifts, the time with family and friends, the joy, the fun! But it gets sweeter ever year as my relationship with Jesus deepens and grows.

Christmas is the the beginning of the most powerful love story in history — the love of God for His people. Prior to Jesus coming to Earth, we were in a broken relationship with God. Sin had entered the world with Adam and Eve and ever since then, God had been pursuing and planning a true reconciliation with His most prized. With us.

A Savior was born and the world would never be the same. It’s so amazing (and still mind boggling) to be reminded of this beautiful story every December. We are loved and adored all year by an incredible King, but there’s something special about the Christmas Season. Maybe it’s because it’s on display for believers and nonbelievers the hope of Jesus. If you don’t know Him or maybe you’ve grown distant from Him lately or maybe even you’ve completely turned away from Him, I’m praying for you. And I’m always available to talk and pray with you, no judgement or questions asked. You are a gift! Merry Christmas!
