Prime Purchases: August 2021

Hello! How’s it going? We are holding on tight to summer over here! Yesterday, the kids helped me set up my classroom for year number 20! I can’t even believe that I am 2/3 of the way finished with my teaching career. Time sure does fly by! Then, we spent the afternoon at the pool followed by lots of neighborhood kids playing outside and an impromptu decision to pick up some carry out pizzas for dinner. We had a perfect summer Monday, that’s for sure.

Today, I’m linking up with Tanya for this month’s Prime Purchases.

Here’s what I bought this month:

First up is the mini massage gun for Travis. Travis is a runner, and he always takes the time to stretch and cool down. The massage gun was the perfect birthday gift for him!

I wanted to add in a Vitamin C serum to my routine to help brighten up my skin. I’ve been using this serum once a day, and it’s been a good addition to my skin care routine.

I recently shared that I bought a messenger bag, and I turned to Amazon to find the perfect strap for summer. I thought this black, pink, and rose gold one was fun. There are lots of cute color and pattern options.

I actually have another one ordered that will be here in a couple weeks. I love being able to change out the straps for different seasons.

I purchased this dress for an upcoming occasion, and I was pleasantly surprised with the blue and white pattern and how easy breezy it is for summer.

Plaid Tunic Dress

I love this pink top because it can be paired with my white jeans or denim shorts. It’s a great summer option that I can also wear to school.

Flowy Blouse

Hayden was in need of a new back pack, and chose this Under Armour one. It arrived, is great quality, and there are lots of color options.

As I prep for our back to school celebration, I continued the book tradition and picked this one up for Hadley:

Middle School book

…and this one for Hayden:

6th Grade Ninja book

As expected, this month’s purchases included some things for back to school as well as a few things for myself 😉 (+ a gift for Trav!)

Tanya’s next link up is September 7th.

Well, my kids are off to get their middle school schedules and meet their teachers today. I don’t know what’s harder to believe…the fact that summer is almost over or that I’m about to have two kids in middle school!

What have you been Priming lately?

See you back here tomorrow!

    1. Well, we still haven’t had an official announcement (unless I missed it) 😬but I know middle school kids have based on emails I’ve been receiving…last week for 9th grade orientation, it was student and teacher choice.

      1. I think it’s better to wait until closer to decide. I’m worried that we will mask longer than necessary because it will require a school board meeting. It should be choice! I did hear promising data from
        Europe that the Delta variant has peaked and run its course and a prediction that it could be September 1 here.


      2. Our new superintendent just started last week and I think this week is when he was meeting with health dept and our core team that was making the decisions last year. I know two vaccinated people who got covid in the past couple weeks and another who was vaccinated and her whole family (kids and husband)(some vaxxed, some not) who got it. So I hope it has peaked and on its way out

  1. Under Armour backpacks last forever, so that was a good buy. I love your book choices for the kids. That blue and white dress may make its way into my closet, too. It’s so cute! Have a great day! Enjoy all the summer!


  2. So sweet that they help you set up your classroom!! That’ll be my kids one day and it makes me smile to think about. I cannot believe Hayden and Hadley are off to middle school– wow! Love that pink top!
