I Love Link Ups

My poor brain hasn't totally recovered from the two week vacation that I was just on. Is it just me? I feel bad for my lil ole blog. I have all the time in the world since I'm no longer in school (praise Jesus!), but I can't think of anything witty to write about. All that I think about is Kensington and my lil ole family. I know ya'll would be bored out of your minds if that's all I wrote about.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is: I love link ups. They give me a purpose on the days that I don't know what else to write about. Alas, here I am today... linking up with two of my favie people: Mia and Kelli for my December favorites. 
Fitbit Flex - I got a Fitbit for Christmas and I have loved being able to track my movement and steps. I kept my goal steps at 10,000 per day, which is the default setting, but I have only hit that goal once since wearing it. I need to be walking more! So glad I have it to track my movement.

Sons of Anarchy TV Show - I have been an avid SOA watcher for years. The series finale was in December and I was really sad to see it go. However, I felt like it ended well. It gave closure, which I think is important in a good TV show!

Bump Nest Pregnancy Pillow - One of the best $100 I've ever spent was on this bad boy. I think that even non-preggos should order one. It's the worlds most comfy pillow. I am in major favor. I will try to write a full blog post very soon describing it in more detail. 

L'Oréal True Match Foundation - Although this foundation as been around for quite some time, I only began using it in December. I bought the lightest shade (now that I'm not self tanning) and just mix it in with my other favorite foundations. It makes the most perfect base for my makeup. 

Starbucks Decaf Peppermint Mocha - This drink just shouts, "hey, it's winter time!" So I think that's mainly why I like it. I drank this treat at least 5 different times throughout December and it made me happy. It's supposed to get really cold here on Thursday, so I may be getting one more then.

  4. Yay! Thanks for linking up, Allison! I just bought one of those pillows for my pregnant sister-in-law and she loves it! I seriously considered buying one for myself just because they seem so awesome!

  7. We just watched the first episode of Sons of Anarchy over the weekend! I figure January is the perfect month to binge watch a new show - with a peppermint mocha in hand of course ;)

  8. I love that you openly admitted to loving linkups for providing you with a prompt for a day when you otherwise would have nothing to write about! So perfect, and so you! And that pillow definitely looks like perfection, and I'm not even pregnant!! ;)

  9. Well you know I've been an SOA watcher from the beginning too, I've felt a little lost with it over haha, but I agree that it ended well! I've enjoyed several skinny peppermint mocha's this season, more than usual. I've been on a massive peppermint kick.

  10. I'm really wanting a fitbit- it seems like such a great motivator! I loved the peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks all throughout December- I also tried out the true match foundation for the first time last month!

  11. I love peppermint anything in the winter time. I dont know what it is with my obsession?! I stocked up on the Candy Cane coffee from Target on Christmas clearance too!

  12. I have the Fitbit Zip and I love using it!! It made me realize how much I sat down at my desk job during the day- yikes! It's such a good reminder to get up and stretch/walk more often! :) And I think that will be the drink I order if/when I ever get to Starbucks... I've got a huge giftcard in my wallet that's been waiting for me to visit!

  13. Would it be socially acceptable for me to use that pillow with no intentions on being pregnant in the near future?! ;)

  14. I love love love your baby name!!!!! It's so pretty!!! I also hate when tv shows end with an open ending. I mean, what is that? I hated how the Sopranos did that to me! I have a bad feeling that Mad Men may do the same thing, it's the same writer and everything. I can't help it - just give me a happy ending.

  15. I am looking at getting a fitness watch/monitor thingy but am torn between the Fitbit because 1. it does lots of stuff and 2. they're cute but, I don't typically like wearing things on my wrist all day every day and a heart rate monitor watch such as the Polar and Garmin which would be more accurate at telling me calories burned I would think, and I'd only have to wear it when exercising. Any thoughts?

  17. I'm glad to hear you like your fitbit! I can't decide between the flex and the charge. Too many options and I can't decide which one is better for me! I don't blame you one bit for having baby girl brain. I am excited that we get to follow along throughout this pregnancy with you.
