2016 Favorites

2016 Favorites

Can you believe it is 2017?  I feel like we just started 2016, anyone else feel like this year flew by?  2016 brought lost of adventures and new experiences, check out my recap here.  

Poldark: I completely fell in love with Poldark this year.  I wish I could go back and rewatch it for the first time.  The characters are so good, the storyline draws you in from the beginning, beautiful locations and Aidan Turner isn't bad to look at either.  

Fitbit Charge HR: Kyle got this for me for Christmas last year and I love it!  I love how it makes me aware of how much I am moving during the day and really holds me accountable.  I also really like seeing my sleep patterns.  Want to know how to make money with your Fitbit, check out my post here.  

Archer Farms Coconut Chai: This was a random Target find and it was delicious.  It is the best chai I have ever had.  It has just the right amount of sweetness, spiciness and just a hint of coconut.  It is hard to find and my Target doesn't always have them in stock so when they do I stock up.    

Coffee Mate Coconut Creamer: Apparently coconut was a thing this year.  This creamer is my absolute favorite.  It is not too sweet and not overly coconuty, it is the perfect blend of smooth flavor. 

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah: This book is the best book I read all year, it is in my top five of best books ever.  It is one of those books that sticks with you and one that I will probably reread in the future.  It is one that I want to share with everyone because it is just that good.  Check out my review here.    

OPI Dulce de Leche: This nail polish was the color that adorned my nails 75% of this year.  If I went on a trip this was what I chose.  It is a long lasting polish and the color is a perfect nude.  It is one of my top nail polish colors that I own.  

Aldi: I am so happy to finally live near and Aldi and see what all the fuss was about.  Well that fuss was well deserved.  I used to be a Walmart grocery girl, now I do 90% of our grocery shopping here.  It has the best prices around and I have saved a good bit of money making the switch.  If you have been on the Aldi fence go ahead and jump over it's green on the other side.  

Starbucks Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato: I discovered my absolute favorite Starbucks drink this year.  Over the summer they came out with a new iced coffee drink with coconut milk.  I decided to try it and see what I thought, I completely fell in love with the smooth, creamy and rich taste of the combination.  This is my Starbucks guilty pleasure.  Wanna know more check out my full review.    

Crockpot: This little guy has been such a help in making sure we eat dinner on weeknights.  With both of us working late we don't always have time to come home and cook a meal.  With the crockpot I can throw things in before I leave for work and dinner is ready when I get home.  It's super easy and I love finding new recipes to try.  What is your favorite crockpot recipe? 

Ipad: My Mother-In-Law gave me her old Ipad and I had no idea how useful it would be.  I love mine!  My main use for it is to setup and watch shows, youtube videos and movies while I get ready, do chores around the house, etc.  I love the bigger screen and the portability.  Whenever this one dies I will definitely have to look into a replacement.   

What were your favorites of 2016?
