This list basically includes all of my favorite things from this year (excluding books because they needed their own post)!
Favorite TV Shows: Flea Bag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Crown
Favorite Movie: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Favorite Albums: Tides of a Teardrop by Mandolin Orange, Wildcard by Miranda Lambert, Closer Than Together by The Avett Brothers
Favorite Jeans: 10" Skinny Jeans: Button Front Edition (I LIVED in these jeans most of this year so they were worth the $. Madewell also has sales often so be on the lookout for those + bring in a pair of old jeans to be recycled and get $20 off).
Favorite Leggings: LuluLemon All the Right Places 28" (also expensive, but worth it in my opinion. I do a capsule wardrobe and have 2-3 pairs of nice jeans and a couple pair of leggings. Also, Lulu's return policy is awesome. If you don't like the leggings or something goes wrong with them you can return them even after wearing them).
Favorite Makeup: Beautycounter Dew Skin SPF Moisturizer (A lighter coverage but seriously my favorite and it feels so good. I wear shade #2 ), Beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Umber, and Fitglow Beauty Conceal+ (I wear C2).
Favorite Jewelry: These earrings by Viki Glaze (she's taking a little holiday break, but she'll have more in stock soon if you are interested).
Favorite Podcast: The Next Right Thing by Emily P. Freeman. I listen to audiobooks way more than podcasts, but when I do listen to a podcast it's almost always this one. It's kind of like a brief respite from the day.
Favorite Planner: Y'all, I'm a planner freak and have to have just the right one. That said, I've tried so many and liked many of them (Simplified Planner and Ink + Volt being at the top of the list), but I'm pretty sure I'm a Bullet Journal girl. I can make it what I want and it has worked really well for me this past year. See a quick start guide for bullet journalling here. I like to use this notebook.
Your turn! Have you tried any of these favorite things? What are some of your favorites from 2019?

Well. Here we are, friends. I'm going to be a homeschooling mom for the 2020-2021 school year. This was not an easy decision. Before I had kids I thought I might homeschool them one day. I quickly changed my mind when I became an actual parent. Even with a background in education (elementary school teacher and librarian), I realized that I didn't want to homeschool and would most likely be sending my kids to public school. Then COVID...
