Christmas Recap: Breakfast Recipe & Christmas Gifts For Me...

OH MY GOODNESS, CAN YOU SAY EXHAUSTED?!
Christmas has finally came and gone, the gifts are all opened, that good grub is in our bellies, and many wonderful memories have been made with our families and friends. Nothing beats Christmas Celebrations in my book, seeing all the precious smiles on my kids faces, watching them fling paper all over the living room floor, and the house smelling fantastic from our breakfast and dinner meals...ahh, just wonderful.

I want to share today what I got for Christmas this year. I am so happy, its been one of the best Christmas’s for me personally, not just because of the gifts but because I know the true meaning of Christmas and I got to celebrate it with my wonderful husband and little darlings in our home with our precious pup Molly...We had so many boxes under our tree from our families and then to each other, it was just crazy getting everything opened and cleaned up, I am sure your house was the same...


Anyways...here is what I got to fall in love with this Christmas just for myself...


Sephora, does it get any better than that place?!...in my book no, but I am really picky about what I buy and when I buy it. This was really a gift to myself, my husband usually gets me a gift card but this year I just purchased online using my VIB card and a promo code, got myself a great deal. Below is what is pictured above in the photo, and a link to Sephora, some of these items are no longer available through them. We are going left to right! 

The Goods:
Tarte EmphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow Stick in: Moca Berry & Champagne
FRESH Supar Lip Treatments Limited Edition includes 6 lip tints and 1 lip gloss {no longer available}
Tarte Cheek Stain in: Tickled & Dollface
Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Tint in: Kind, Festive, & Dashing
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush in: Empowered & Fearless
Lorac Pro Eyeshadow Pallet
Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Pallet
Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Pallet

You can purchase the above items at Sephora, remember some items are no longer available.


The above items are from my husband and then my outlaws {in-laws}...Below is what I got with included links if you are interested in any of these items for yourself {you know, hitting those after Christmas sales}...

Bath & Body Works Fresh Picked Hand Creams in: Scarlet Pumpkin, Honeycrisp Apple, Tangerine, & Pears
Sunbeam Heated Plush Electric Blanket in: shade Mushroom {I love this blanket, it has 2 controllers one on each side so I can have my side warmer or cooler than my hubbys, I have fell in love with this heated blanket.}
Google Chromecast: allows you to basically use your computer/phone on your TV without all the added stuff, this thing is really amazing and I am so glad to finally have one for myself.
Nicole by Nicole Miller Tamie Satchel in: Black {its no longer available through JCPenny in Black but they do have 3 other colors to choose from currently} this purse is amazing, I love the size, its big enough for all my lady stuff, wallet, and I even throw snacks in for my toddler. Yep multifunctional, cant beat that.
Isotoner Women's Woodlands Microsuede Fur Chunky Boot Slippers with indoor/outdoor soles in: Black, these are available in a total of 5 colors {thankfully my MIL grabs us new slippers every year, she always gets ones you can wear outside which I am so thankful for, they last forever and look really good with leggings, yes I wear mine sometimes with my regular clothes, you know when I have to pick my kids up from school, hanging outside on a cold day, or running errands}

Something not pictured but was part of my Christmas gifts is my HUGE Bath & Body Works Haul from Black Friday, and the 3 bags of Hershey's Milk Chocolate that my amazing husband put in my stocking, yes he actually poured 3 bags of chocolate in my stocking, it was awesome! 

For Breakfast this morning, we had a Crockpot Breakfast Casserole, I found the recipe over at Iowa Girl Eats, and let me tell you what, its AMAZING, and so EASY to throw together, the only thing I added was in the top layer of hashbrowns, I mixed in 8oz of sour cream, but everything else was the same.

It was just amazing, I will be making this more often. Dinner was a scrumptious pineappled Ham, with baked mac "n" cheese, and green bean casserole. Simple but delicious. Thats my kind of meal. 

Overall, our Christmas Celebration was amazing, we had so much fun, and honestly the best gift I got was the gift of being at home with Jim, our little darlings, and our pup. Nothing beats that on any list of mine. Seeing all the happy faces, tons of paper everywhere, and all the memories we made today was priceless. I hope you guys had a great Christmas with your family and friends wherever and however you celebrated. 

Much Love & Many Blessings, Kristen
