Things I am loving in December
It is hard to believe it is the end of December already! So many things have gone on but these are some of my favorites.
I should preface this by saying I love learning about personality types. I find it fascinating. I also love the Enneagram, but that is a conversation for another time.
I recently discovered that Personality Hackers has a podcast for each Myers Briggs personality type. It was so insightful. If you are interested in listening to one on your personality type, take this free test first. It was very accurate for me and it’s recommended by many people. Now I just need to convince Carlos to take the test so I can listen to the podcast on his personality.
I can’t even begin to tell you my love for grocery delivery — groceries I ordered in my pajamas, and not only delivered to my house but carried in and put on my kitchen table. It is amazing.
This past summer, I ordered groceries while we were on vacation and they were delivered the day we got home. How great is that? If only this service was around when my kids were born, it would have been life changing.
In my case, it grocery delivery helps me save money on my grocery bill because it cuts out impulse buying. I have also been able to find a coupon code for almost all of my deliveries, saving me most, if not all, of the delivery fee. I still tip the driver though.
I use Peapod, a service through Giant foods (if you live in an area with Peapod delivery and have never tried it, you can get $20 off your first order through my link). I know there are many more stores that either have delivery or pick-up services so definitely check for one in your area.
What I am reading
I have read a lot of fiction this month. I love super, light fiction. I refuse to read or watch fiction that is sad. When I take the time to read fiction, I want to be able to put it down feeling happy and relaxed. It really is a stress relief for me.
I recently read Dear Mr. Knightly and LOVED it. I got it as a cheap Kindle book ages ago and didn’t have time to read it until recent. So glad I finally did. I think it may be my favorite fiction book of the year.
I also read a bunch of fiction by Julie Lessman, which I checked out of the library. If you are into historical fiction, it might be worth checking out.
