January Favorites

January FavoritesWelcome to January Favorites, a new monthly feature in which I highlight some of my favorite things from the month!

Oatmeal Cookies: It snowed SO MUCH in January (we basically have over two feet of snow!) and consequently we’ve been stuck inside quite a bit. My mom baked oatmeal cookies on our first snow day, and OH MY GOODNESS ARE THEY GOOD. They’re chewy and buttery and raisin-y…. I don’t think that’s a real word. But you know what I mean! I love them so much! ❤

Macbook Pro

MacBook Pro: Earlier this month I purchased my very first Macbook Pro, and I adore it more than words can explain. It’s fast, clear, and oh-so-pretty. This was a great choice for a laptop to bring to college in the fall.

Cozy Winter Hats: My parking spot is pretty far away from my school, and it seems like an even longer walk in the bitter cold wind bright and early at 6:30 in the morning! I bundle up like crazy, but lately I’ve been having fun with wearing lovely winter hats. I’ve accumulated quite a varied collection over the years, and this year I’ve finally got around to wearing most of them.

Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrackThe Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack: I’ve been listening to this soundtrack basically nonstop since I first saw the movie weeks ago, and I’m still not tired of it! It’s a great mix of oldies tunes (mostly from the 70s) that are fun, quirky, and irresistibly catchy. I even burned the album to a CD so I can sing along as I drive to school and work. My favorite songs on it are “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede, “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5, and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. I highly recommend both the movie and the soundtrack! They’re awesome!

Those are my January favorites! Did you like this type of post? What were your favorites in the month of January? Let me know in the comments section below!

  2. I’m glad you had snow round yours, we did too but it was only in the morning and it melted away by the time it was noon.
