December Monthly Recap

Sharing a December monthly recap – all the gifts I received, movies I saw, my favorite posts, and more!

Favorite Christmas Gifts:

  • This YETI mug is one of my favorite gifts from my parents! I’ll be honest, I went with them to Scheels to pick it out, but I was still so excited when I opened it!
  • My brother got me the Reese Witherspoon cookbook and I’m looking forward to reading it and trying a few of her favorite recipes.
  • I got this SUPER cozy bathrobe from my roommate Jennie and I can’t stop wearing it around the house.
  • I’ve had my eye on this Wrigley Field print forever and it was gifted to me this year!

3 Items In My Shopping Cart:

  1. This Summer Fridays X OUAI kit is calling my name. It’s a hair masque, a face mask, and one of those spa headbands (Since getting a facial last month I’m like, I need one). It’s also only $22, which is a steal because the mask itself is usually over $50.
  2. TAN LUXE Drops. Do these work? Someone LMK 🙂
  3. I’m hosting a Galentines Brunch in early February and this skirt would be perfect to host in!

Where I Traveled/Ate:

I spent Christmas in Pierce, NE with my grandparents, and it was nice day getaway. Aside from there, I traveled to Wayne for a girl’s holiday sleepover – all about Christmas PJ’s and cocoa bars!

I ate at Railcar for brunch with a group of my best college gals, and you all know that’s one of my favorite spots! I had my first Eggs Benedict. I can’t believe I waited until age 25 to try one!

I also ate at Mula and then went to the karaoke bar in Omaha’s Blackstone District with a group of girls. I LOVED Mula’s margaritas.

Movies I Saw:

In February my MoviePass lapses and I’m not mad about it. I haven’t utilized it lately. I saw one movie, Second Act, and I didn’t even use the pass, as the movie wasn’t available on it. Do any of you use AMC’s Movie Subscription Service?

Netflix/Hulu Series I Watched:

On Netflix, I finished Schitt’s Creek. Again, it’s easy to watch, funny and episodes are only 20 minutes!

I joined the crew obsessed with Bird Box! I found it really interesting, and I liked it more than A Quiet Place, which I saw in theaters. I need to start Black Mirror and their new “choose your own adventure” thing.

On Hulu, I revived my love for Law & Order SUV and Master Chef. I went through three seasons of Master Chef! I love cooking competition shows.

Lifesize 2 is on Hulu and it was…weird. I didn’t find it appropriate for teens, but more of a throwback for those in their 20’s who used to love the original movie.
