Fave New TV Shows of 2021

This is part two of the #AMonthofFaves on the screen post from last week and officially my last A Month of Faves post.

Figuring out what new TV I watched this past year was a lot harder than figuring out the movies I watched. For one, there is no Letterboxd for TV. For two, there are no real TV seasons anymore! And for three, last year was seriously like two years; it was so long. Anyway, enough of that. Let’s get on with the TV.

#AMonthofFaves 2021 Ornament Update

Today’s prompt:

FRI | Dec. 17 – #AMonthofFaves – This is How We Do Christmas (traditions, decorations, food, gifts, etc.)⁠

GirlXOXO

It’s holiday traditions time so here’s my annual round up of commemorative ornaments. Last year was very busy before the lockdown, and this year was a toe dip back into the world. I did some cautious traveling and, of course, got an annual pass to Disneyland, and that’s what’s reflected in my ornaments.

#AMonthofFaves A Day in My Life

This was Friday’s prompt!

FRI | Dec. 10 – #AMonthofFaves – A Day / Weekend / Week in the Life (give us a peek into your life)⁠

I didn’t post this on the day of because my daughter came home for break, and my day absolutely got away from me, and then yesterday I had to catch up on work because it’s the end of the semester. I almost talked myself out of posting at all, but then I remembered I had already written everything down, so here’s what my day was like on Thursday, December 9, 2021.

#AMonthofFaves Best Buys of 2021

I’m linking up with Tanya and Kimberly to participate in A Month of Faves. Today’s Yesterday’s prompt is was These are a Few of Our Favorite Things, and I am focusing on my best buys of 2021.

So, um. I bought a lot of stuff this year. Partly–okay, mostly–because I moved. But also, I just saw a lot of stuff that I wanted. Full disclosure: I looked back through my Amazon purchase history and may have made this face: 😮. And then I looked back through my Etsy purchase history and made this face: 😅.

Anyway, I regret nothing.

#AMonthofFaves Best Moments of 2021

Hi. It is time.

And just as a heads up, this post is very image heavy. Descriptions are below each picture. Also, these aren’t necessarily in date order because I grouped similar things together.

#AMonthofFaves Holiday Book and Ornament Traditions

A Month of Faves! Get into it!

⭐ DEC 18 – Favorite Things [Holiday Edition]⁠
(Treats, Traditions, Books, Movies, Songs, Decorations, Activities, etc)⁠

Today, I’m going to focus on traditions since I don’t really have anything new to report about the other stuff, and my traditions also include activities ✅ and decorations ✅. I haven’t watched any of the new Christmas movies and my old ones haven’t changed. I have no new treats to report. I haven’t heard any new Christmas songs except for that Sia one, and I do like it but I’ve only heard it twice and only because I watched the video.

Jólabókaflóð, the Yule Book Flood

Hello, my new favorite tradition is (of course) Jólabókaflóð, the Yule Book Flood wherein you exchange books on Christmas Eve and read while eating snacks. Last year was my first year participating when I was at my friend’s house, and it was a fun whirlwind of a doozy. This year will be much more lowkey since there are only three of us. The plan is for each person to buy the other two people books and then read while drinking hot cocoa and eating cookies/snacks. We initially pulled names out of a hat, but both girls were like, “Why can’t we just buy books for everybody?” and so that’s what we’re going to do.

Ornaments

And, of course, I am continuing my own personal tradition of commemorative ornaments.

This year, I added the following ornaments to my tree:

Happy moments
