Let’s Look


Well, this month feels like it’s flying by! I always love when Shay and Erika host this monthly link up because it’s fun to see what others have to share!

So far this year, we’ve looked at:

  • Scheduling/organizing a busy family in January
  • What’s in your medicine cabinet in February

This month, the topic is all time favorite Amazon finds.

Well, is there a more perfect post for me to write about?

This is a SUPER-sized Amazon post filled with some faves and even seasonal favorites as well.

All-time faves:

I purchased flameless candles back in January, and they have been perfect for decor, but they also came in very handy at night when we didn’t have power last week. I’m really glad I picked up the seven pack. At first, I wasn’t using them all, but then I put a couple downstairs on the built in, and they are perfect there.

I don’t see my exact ones anymore, but this pack has over 10,000 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 star reviews.

I’ve been drinking my morning coffee out of this mug for years. I don’t use it as a travel mug…just my at home mug.

These slippers have become an all time favorite because they are fuzzy but don’t make my feet hot!

When I bought this electric tea kettle, I wasn’t sure how much I’d use it. Hadley uses it the most for warming up water for her mac and cheese or ramen! We also use it for water for hot chocolate. I got my mom one last year since she drinks tea. Anyway, it’s definitely a purchase that we love.

This tissue box cover is something I love so much I gave it as a stocking stuffer/gift last year. The tissue box on our kitchen counter was an “eye sore” for me, but this one is perfect to blend in the tissue box on the counter.

These packing cubes are a must for me, and I always use them when we travel.

My Kindle is probably my all time Amazon fave. I read so much more because of it. I still often have a book I’m reading, but I always have books on my Kindle too. I love it.

Winter Faves:

These Ugg dupes have been perfect to wear this winter.

I wear this sweater often and it comes in a variety of colors.

I purchased this sweater two years ago in a variety of colors, and I still wear them all often.

Spring Faves:

I have this cardigan in two colors, and wear them both all the time. They are perfect for the springtime over a dress.

I picked up this purse last spring, and I love that the strap is interchangeable, and it holds just what I need to go to church, Keeneland, or on vacation.

I picked up this midi dress a couple of years ago, and it’s one I pull from my closet often in the spring.

These joggers are great because they are light weight and a bit more on the capri side.

Summer Faves:

This swim cover up is the best. I have it in light blue and navy. It looks like they have a short sleeved version now too.

I purchased this swimsuit two years ago and have two of them. Cute, stylish, and comfy.

I love these rose gold Birk dupes. I did size up to a 10 instead of my regular 9. Hadley has them in white…she actually got them first 😆

Fall Faves:

Once the weather gets colder, I usually switch out my purse from something smaller to one that holds all the things. If I’m not carrying my Barrington bag tote, then I’m using this hobo style one:

This fuzzy cardigan is one of my favorite things to wear in the fall and winter:

These Amazon joggers can be worn year round, of course, but I love them when I don’t want to wear leggings.

Shew! I know the topic was “all-time” faves, but I’ve been a fan of Amazon for years, so I guess that means I have lots of faves. All the seasonal items I shared, I think I’ve had for at least a year…and most I’ve had for longer.

Next month’s topic is: our biggest pet peeves. Uh oh…this could be opening up a can of worms. haha!

Hello from wind blown Kentucky. As I mentioned in Friday’s post, we didn’t have school Friday due to potential dangerous storms. While we didn’t lose any trees or have an destruction to our home, we’ve been without power since 5pm Friday. We have friends whose trees fell onto their homes and there are downed power lines everywhere.

My seven pack of flameless candles sure have done their job!

Hadley’s dance competition in Louisville got postponed and postponed again before getting canceled. Hayden’s track meet was still held in Louisville yesterday, so we decided to keep our Louisville hotel for Saturday night. I got a pretty good night’s sleep, we charged all the things, I washed and blow dried my hair, and we had a warm breakfast.

As I type this from the hotel, we are still without power in Lexington. Apparently, this is the 3rd largest power outage in Lexington in the past 20 years. The latest estimate on the outage map is for power to be restored Wednesday at 11pm. I’m hoping they are giving us the “worst case” scenario. This is definitely the longest I’ve ever been without…that’s for sure.

I’m linking up with Tanya for Prime Purchases.

The end of January and this month had a few purchases for dance, some clothes, a few Valentine’s Day gifts, and some other odds and ends.

For dance competitions, Hadley needed to replenish a few things:

  • They all wear the same shade of red lipstick.
  • Hadley finds the magnetic eyelashes to be the easiest to put on because she doesn’t have to worry about using the glue.
  • You can never have too many hair pins.
  • Hair gel works better than hairspray.

I picked up a few “staple” items of clothing as well as a new sweater and Hadley’s dress for the dance.

  • This blue sweater is a version of the pink turtleneck one that I love.
  • This black basic long sleeve shirt is perfect to wear under my new SSYS tunic and other lightweight jackets.
  • I love these joggers, and I had them in two colors. When I purged my closet last summer, I donated a pair of gray ones, and only had the navy color left. Anyway, I wanted to repurchase a pair because I’d forgotten how much I wear them in the spring.
  • Hadley really wanted a pink dress for the dance, and she found this one. She got an XS, and we still had to get it altered, but she loved it, so it was worth it.
Joggers in navy

A few other purchases:

  • I’ve ordered these electric toothbrushes a few times. The kids and I all use them, and Hayden needed a new one.
  • I purchased these alarm clocks for the kids for Valentine’s Day. Besides being an alarm clock, they also have a night light (different color options) and sound machine built in too. Hadley uses the ocean sound like she did on her previous sound machine. Hayden uses the birds chirping as his alarm sound…let’s just say he needs something a little louder to wake him up!
  • I’m helping quite a few students who are reading Romeo and Juliet, and many teachers use the “No Fear” version with the play on one side and the translation on the other side. I picked up a couple to keep in my room, so students don’t have to bring them back and forth.
  • I need to do a better job cleaning my rings, and this “Diamond Dazzle” has been a quick and easy way to touch up my rings.
  • I re-ordered my collagen for the third time. I add a scoop to my coffee every morning. I’m trying to keep up with this routine.

What have you purchased from Amazon lately?

We’ll see how posting goes this week…hopefully things will be back to normal soon.

Prime Purchases: February 2023

Hello and happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Ours was super busy. Honestly, I was in bed by 9:00 on Friday because I was so tired and kind of grumpy. Then, Saturday was non-stop which I expect…but then Sunday was too which isn’t what I was expecting.

Anyway, I’m starting the week off by linking up with Tanya for this month’s Prime Purchases.

In January, I try to limit my Amazon spending because I feel like in November and December, all I do is buy gifts. That being said, this post is pretty full which makes me feel like I need to explain myself 😂

Here are my purchases this month:

At the end of December (so technically not January), I bought:

This pack of no show socks to wear with my new Shu Shop shoes. I’ve been losing socks left and right lately, so I needed a few more no show socks.

Also, I ordered another tub of collagen. I’ve been adding a a scoop to my morning coffee for the past few months.

Once I got organized after Christmas, I wanted a place for my boots, and ordered this boot bag organizer that fits under the bed. I have two pairs of tall boots in it and then a couple of short boots too. One of the spots is still empty which is nice knowing I can still add to it.

With an Amazon gift card that I got for Christmas, I ordered…

Kelly Ripa’s book

…and these slippers that I had my eye on. I 10/10 recommend these. I love them because they are easy to wear around the house (and outside if needed), and my feet don’t get hot. The come in lots of colors too.

When I got my house organized and put back together after Christmas, I purchased two more of these mini boxwood wreaths. I have one on the candle pedestal on my coffee table, and wanted two more to add to two more candle pedestals.

With a gift card I received for my birthday, I bought…

This seven pack of flameless candles with remote! My friend had a couple on her mantel, but then I found the seven pack. I’m only using a few right now, but they provide a lovely glow in the living room when I’m missing my Christmas tree. The timer can be set for two, four, six or eight hours. Also, using the remote, you can make the candles flicker (or not!) I have a feeling this will be one of my favorite 2023 Amazon purchases.

Here is one of the candles with one of the mini wreaths:

I also picked up a pair of new black cotton leggings. I’ve had a pair from H&M for years, and wear them so much they are almost see through…so this pair has worked as a replacement.

One more thing I picked up with my gift card is this workout tank. I love it so much, and will probably order it in another color at some point. (I ordered a large, and maybe could have done a medium…but I don’t like my tanks to be tight)

Travis made a rare Amazon purchase, and picked up some Adidas & Nike socks for the kids. He ordered a pack of black and of white. Both kids have lots of socks with holes in them that they refuse to throw away! haha

One more purchase…

from my Gma…She ordered me these Ugg dupes (that I gave as a gift idea) for my birthday, and I’ve been wearing them so much. There are various colors, but I think the leopard print is fun!

So, I still had quite a few purchases this month, but really I used gift cards for most of them!

What have you been priming lately?

I’m not sure how much I will post this week. I will be at school late every day this week and the kids are super busy. *sigh* It’s only Monday, and I already want it to be Friday.

Prime Purchases: January 2023


I’d love to say, “Happy Monday,” but this Monday morning brings the end of break. Teachers report back today, and the kids come back tomorrow.

Also, Happy 2 0 2 3!

I love that Tanya is continuing to host this link up this year, and I always love seeing what others have purchased.

This is a super sized post/gifts edition. I purchased these items over the past few months but didn’t want to share until my people had received the gifts 🙂


The shower in my bathroom had very little pressure and was taking forever for the water to get hot. Finally, Travis ordered this new shower head, and my showers are back to being amazing. Also, goes to show what little I know about plumbing. The water gets hot immediately now. It was taking up to five minutes before I would even get warm water.

The rest are gifts. Amazon sure came in clutch again for me this year.


Here are a few gifts that Hadley received:

  • She gets her love of pjs from me. She sent me a pic of plaid flannel shorts/button up that she like from Aerie. By the time I went to order, they were sold out. She ended up really loving these green plaid pjs.
  • I’d seen these “varsity letter” bags all over the internet. I figured the “stuff” one would be good for when we travel. She took it with her to KC, and would hold it up and say, “I better get my stuff together” 😂
  • She requested a pair of “Ugg like” slippers, so I sent these to my mother-in-law as a gift idea. Hadley has worn them most of break, both inside and outside of the house!


Here are a few gifts Hayden received:

  • I thought this light up Chiefs sign would be great for his room.
  • He’d been wanting a medal holder for a while now, and I chose this one because it has a shelf for trophys as well.
  • This Under Armor jacket was at the top of Hayden’s list.


Travis continues to be hard to buy for, but I picked him up a few things via Amazon.

  • This Under Armor shirt is great for running.
  • I was going to put this LED magnetic tool in his stocking, but ended up wrapping it. It’s a flashlight that has a retractable/flexible neck, but it’s also a magnet for picking up things. I figure he can mostly use it for the flashlight feature.
  • This travel power strip was already used on our trip to KC/hotel stay. It has four outlets and three USB ports, so we could charge everything in one spot.
  • This waterproof dry bag is something I thought Travis could use especially during cross country and track season. The number of times we’ve tried to keep towels dry for after a race or keep wet running clothes from getting other things wet are too many to count. I could see where this would come in handy while camping as well (We don’t camp…just another suggested use 😆.) They come in a variety of sizes, but I got the 5L one.


Here are a few stocking stuffers I picked up:

  • This pack of sticky note “to do” lists made the perfect stocking stuffer. I put one in everyone’s stocking (including mine and my mom’s stocking) I’m going to take the remaining ones to school.
  • I put this bottle opener in Trav’s stocking.
  • These spider clips looked like something Hadley would wear, so I put a couple in her stocking. I kept one for myself, and then she gave the other remaining two to friends.

Other gifts:

Here are a few other gifts I gave (or received!)…

  • My Gma suggested a warm and cooling neck/shoulder wrap as a gift idea for her. I got this Sharper Image brand one, and she’s already used it and loves it. I didn’t realize that it was scented, but it does say “herbal aromatherapy,” so I should have known. It’s a “lavender and herb spa blend” which does smell like a spa!
  • I saw this stove top glass teapot as a gift suggestion and thought my mom would like it. It’s pretty, so it can sit out, and it can be used on the stove or microwave. It includes two teas.
  • My mom mentioned a belt bag for travel, but I thought this cross body seemed more practical because it holds so much more. It comes in a variety of of colors.
  • My mother-in-law got me this dough bowl candle, and I can’t wait to use it.

January is my self-imposed break for Amazon, but I did order a few things after Christmas that I plan on sharing in February.

I’m off to a faculty meeting with a strong cup of coffee! Have a great day.

Prime Purchases: December 2022


Tis the season for shopping! A combo of holiday events, kids’ birthday, and Christmas makes for a full sized Prime Purchases post!

I’m linking up with Tanya to share my Amazon purchases this month.

Here are my purchases this month:

This blouse is an absolute favorite. I purchased it in the “pink purple” color. This feels like such an “expensive” blouse because of the fabric and the dot detail.

I love the 3/4 sleeve and the ability to wear it tucked or untucked. I’ve also purchased it in red for the holiday season. I did try it in both the medium and large. While the medium fit, I was more comfortable in the large.

I purchased this clutch for the charity event we went to. I do have a few clutches, but I wanted something a little more festive. The gold color is so pretty, but it does come in so many other colors.

Hadley has these same heels in nude, but again, I wanted a more sparkly shoe to wear with my dress to the event. These were so pretty, and I was fine being on my feet for a few hours.

Speaking of that event, I wanted to have some color on my legs since I was wearing a short dress. Surprisingly, I still had a bit of color from our beach trip, but when Tanya shared this last month, I thought I’d give it a try. I purchased the “light bronze” shade as well as the mitt, and it was so easy to apply.

The coloring also lasted quite a few days. I actually used it again right before Thanksgiving once I realized it was going to be warm, so I’d be wearing a dress and booties to Thanksgiving.

See below for clutch, heels, and tan legs!

This sweater has been floating around the internet, so I thought I’d give it a try.

I really like it. I wore it mostly buttoned up, but I’ve worn it to school with skinny pants as well as out to dinner with jeans.

I picked up this sweater for Hadley for her birthday. She loves sweatshirts, but I knew she’d need a few oversized sweaters to wear with leggings this holiday and in the winter.

I got her the small, and it’s super cute on her.

Well, if you give a mouse a cookie…or a sweater…this one popped up as something I may like, so I ordered it too. I thought this “rose” shade would be good for the holidays, but then also something I can wear in the cooler days of spring. It’s such a comfy sweater that looks high end. In this sweater, I tried the medium and the large, and I prefer the medium, so that’s the one I kept.

This white fleece blanket is perfect for the winter months. It’s soft, cozy, and has a low price point. It also comes in a variety of colors and sizes.

I ordered this book for the kids for their birthday. I just thought it would be a good reference point for them through the years.

With the fall and winter months, I picked up one of my favorite darker OPI shades: Krona-logical Order. It’s perfect for this time of the year.

After I put out my Christmas decorations, I wanted to add a few smaller items to the Christmas decor. Plus, my decorating still is heavy on the candles. haha

I got this set of two in both the red/green and the silver white options.

…a festive little touch:

Hadley asked for a new screen protector for her birthday which made me realize both kids had had the same one for over a year. These are what we’ve used before, so I ordered them up again.

Now, for….

This post could go on…and on…and on…but I’ll try to reel it in by sharing my top 5 favorite Amazon purchases this year.


This cross body purse is probably my favorite purchase of the year. It’s cute, it holds quite a bit, and you can change out the strap. It comes in a variety of colors too.


When I organized my closet in June (…and it’s still looking pretty good, I must say!), these acrylic dividers were the best purchase. I bought a couple of packs, and I’ve used them in both my closet and the hall closet.


This swim cover up was my favorite purchase of the summer.

I loved it so much that I bought it in two colors.


These Turkish towels are so perfect that I not only packed them for the pool, but they also came with us to Mexico and any lake trip that we went on this summer.


This cardigan was a favorite from the spring! Like many things, I loved it so much, I bought it in two colors.

I don’t think it’s available in pink, but I have the “cadet gray” as well, and it comes in many other colors. It’s easy to style up or down.

What’s your favorite Amazon purchase this year?

I love this link up, and thanks so much for supporting my blog this year.

I hope you have a great Tuesday!

Gift Guides (ish)

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? We spent some of our weekend in Knoxville because Hayden ran in the AAU National Championship race. Then, we spent Sunday doing all the things like church, grocery pick up, shopped for Angel Tree gifts, chores around the house, and then watched the Chiefs game.

Anyway, I know that many Instagrammers and bloggers share gift guides this time of the year which can be both helpful and and sometimes overwhelming.

In my own little twist on “gift guides,” I’m sharing Enneagram gift guides because I love the ones that @ashton.creates shares on her page.

Again, I don’t live or die by Enneagrams, but I do think it’s interesting. I’m a 5w6 and here are the gift guides for both of those:

5 (Investigator)

  • Camera: Well, I haven’t owned a camera in ages thanks to my iPhone, but I do love taking pictures.
  • Candle: Yes! I love candles. I used to pretty much only buy my candles at Bath and Body Works, but this past year, I’ve ordered quite a few from Antique Candle Co., and I’ve loved them all.
  • New mug: I love coffee mugs. While I switch them up season to season, I pretty much stick with my fave most mornings.

6 (Loyalist)

  • Weighted blanket: I cannot live without my weighted blanket. I’ve had one for a couple of years, and it’s hard to sleep without it!
  • Membership: Memberships are a great idea. We always gift Netflix to my dad every year.
  • Letter board: Crafty things are so fun.
  • Slippers: I have a couple of pairs of favorites slippers, but these are my fave.

Another favorite Instagram account I follow is Her gift guides are fun too!


  • Blue light blocker glasses: When we were online for school, I snagged a few pairs of glasses; they were fun to wear.
  • Collectors book set: I always ask for a couple of books every year. Since I rarely buy books, I usually keep a list on Amazon that I share with family as gift ideas for me.
  • Comfy sweaters: Yes to a sweater! The best part about winter is sweater weather. This is my favorite Amazon sweater (I have it in three colors), and this one is a recent purchase that I love.
  • Book marks: I love a good book mark!
  • Add to their coffee station: K-cups in my stocking, please.
  • Home thermostat: This is a practical idea.
  • Reading chair: I dream of having a big enough bedroom one day to have a reading corner.


  • Comfy sweaters: See above!
  • Personalized jewelry: Etsy always has so many cute options. I’ve gifted and received so many good and thoughtful pieces through the years.
  • Cute storage: Organizing is always a great idea!
  • Water bottle: Besides a water bottle (which we don’t need ANY more!), I love personalized tumblers and skinny can coolers.
  • New vacuum: This I do not need 🙂
  • Home security: Again, practical!
  • Purse organization: see “cute storage” above

What’s on your “wish list” this year? If you know your Enneagram number, you should check out their posts!

Teens (and others!)

Now, these aren’t Earth shattering ideas, but I never shared what I got the kids for their birthday.

I try to do “want, need, wear, read” to keep it a somewhat simple shopping list.


This book caught my eye and I knew they’d love the Homer socks!


I hope they’ll let me buy them Christmas pjs until they are 18. I don’t buy the cute little kid ones anymore, but bottom line is in the winter months, they need warmer pjs…so why not buy for birthday?

Hayden prefers the jogger style for sweatpants and pajama pants, so I turned to Old Navy to get both of their pjs. Both of my kids now fit in adults sizes (what the what?!), so that’s what they got. Travis ordered this set of football cards for Hayden, and he was excited.

We also got Hayden a Nike UK hooded sweatshirt, jogger sweatpants, and basketball shorts.


I wanted to get Hadley something special for her 13th birthday, and picked out the Elisa pendant necklace at Kendra Scott. I wasn’t sure what stone she’d want, and I ended up choosing her birthstone.

Besides flannel pj bottoms (and t-shirt), I got her a Kentucky sweatshirt, leggings, and this sweater.

Honestly, I feel more behind than ever on my shopping. As the kids have gotten older, they understand that money and gift cards go a long way, but of course, I want to pick up them up other things as well. In some ways it was easier when they loved Legos and Barbies!

I’d love to hear any ideas you have for my teens! Bonus points if I can order on Amazon. haha

I hope you have a great start to your week.

Prime Purchases: November 2022

Happy November 1st!

Wow, I feel like October went by in a blink. November is a busy month in our house, so I’m sure I will have the same sentiments about November.

I’m linking up with Tanya to share my Amazon purchases this month.

Here are my purchases this month:


I have this same light weight sweatshirt in black, and I also purchased it in light green. I wear both colors pretty often both with denim, skinny pants, or leggings.

I shared these mules in my Friday Favorites post last week. I think they are my favorite most recent find! I’ve worn them a few times to school and have gotten compliments each time I’ve worn them. The suede material is perfect, and I love the gray neutral color.

Fun fact: I only wear black no show socks when working out. I’ve had the same six or so pairs for years, and well, I’m not sure where they’ve all gone. Even though I don’t mix up our clothes when washing them, so many of my pairs have disappeared.

I purchased this ten pack of Hanes socks, and they are just what I needed to replace my missing pairs!

almost 18,000 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 star reviews


I swear my hair isn’t as thick as it used to be. It’s not obvious, but it is to me. I’m not sure if it’s a post-Covid thing or what. My hair stylist suggested mixing a few drops of rosemary into my shampoo when I was my hair, and that has helped some of her clients. I’ve been doing that for the past month or so. The only “issue” is that I only wash my hair 2-3 times a week, so I’m not sure that it’s helping much. I do love the scent of rosemary, so I’m definitely going to continue doing this.

That being said…

…She also suggested a scoop of collagen. I’ve seen many people suggest this brand, so I thought I’d give it a try. I know loss of collagen is definitely something that happens with age, so I’m hoping that putting a scoop in my coffee in the morning will help all the things.

Over 195,000 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 star reviews

Lastly, I’ve started incorporating a new Beachbody program into my workout routine. 4 Weeks for Everybody with one of my favorite trainers, Autumn, is a great low impact program. I do one or two of those workouts a week, and needed a stability ball.

Almost 9,500 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 star reviews

This was another relatively light month of purchases for me which is probably needed considering how many things I will probably buy in November and December.

What have you purchases lately? Happy Priming!

Prime Purchases: October 2022

Hello! I hope your week is off to a great start.

Since it’s the first Tuesday of the month, Tanya is hosting her monthly Prime Purchases link up, and I always love joining in on the fun.

Y’all you may need to check my pulse…I had a pretty light shopping month.

Here are my purchases this month:

I ordered a few new photos after our family pics this summer. I wanted to put a couple of them in similar frames, and our family room bookshelves are pretty small. These gold ones came in a 4 pack, and have worked out for me!

When I shared my Fall Home Tour post, I talked about the string of lights I put behind the garland on the mantle for a little extra glow. It’s actually a two pack of lights with two remotes, but I only used one for the mantle. These have been easy and perfect to use.

I have the plug in version at school with remote that I put around my white board. I love a cozy vibe even at school.

I had saved this belt bag on one of my Amazon lists quite a while ago. I used my Lululemon one quite a bit in the summer and for things like UK games and cross country meets.

This summer, my friend mentioned that she wanted a belt bag, and I told her about this quilted one that I’d saved. She ended up getting it, and it is so cute…and it’s is a little “nicer” option. I bought it this month and have already used it quite a bit.

Ready for some Saturday errands:

With some Fall Break vacation plans with warmer but not super hot summer temps, I thought this cover up would be cute to try…and could double as a dress for going out to lunch or running errands on vacation.

The length and lightweight material are perfect.

I shared this sweatshirt in last week’s Friday Favorites post, and it’s so good. It’s light weight, and I love the split hem. To me, it’s the type of sweatshirt that I can wear with leggings or with pants (or joggers) to school.

Sorry for the dirty mirror! Wanted to show you a close up the side slit.

What have you been Priming lately? Soon enough, I will be buying birthday and Christmas gifts, I’m sure!

Amazon Fall Faves

With a dreary weekend and then cool mornings this week, it’s definitely feeling more like fall. In honor of my favorite season of the year (and the easiest way to shop!), I’m sharing some of my previous favorite fall Amazon purchases.

What to Wear:

Cardigans are my “go to” all school year because classroom (and outside) temps fluctuate so much.

This waffle knit batwing kimono style cardigan is one of my favorites in the fall (and the spring) as it’s not too heavy. It’s perfect to wear with a dress or tank and jeans.

This chunky knit cardigan is one I wear more when the weather is cooler, and I love it because it’s so soft…and because of the pockets! It comes in a variety of colors too!

26,000 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I ordered this pumpkin sweatshirt for Hadley last year, and she loves it! She can’t wait to start wearing it again this fall season.

I picked up these waterproof boots for Hadley last year, and she wore them on rainy and snowy days. They are comfy and cute!


I do find most of my fall decor at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, Target, and other local places, but Amazon has cute decor too.

Last fall, I picked up this checkered table runner….

…and these pillow covers were the perfect touch for our sunroom and the front porch.


I use my bucket bag/cross body purse for most of the summer, but then I transition to a bigger bag for the fall and winter months. I purchased this hobo style purse last fall, and used it through March. It has so many pockets and has a crossbody strap as well.

Almost 10k ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 reviews

Keep Cozy:

This blanket was actually a Christmas gift to a few of my family members last year. It’s thick and warm with Sherpa fleece on one side. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes.

68k ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 reviews

These are just a few faves to kickstart this fall season!

Prime Purchases: September 2022

Hello! How was your Labor Day weekend? We had a good one. As I expected, we went 100 mph all day long on Saturday, but the rest of the weekend provided more downtime. I honestly didn’t get out of my pjs on Sunday…and then Monday was a mix of relaxing and productivity.

Well, it’s the first Tuesday of the month, so I’m linking up with Tanya to share this month’s Prime Purchases.

I had a pretty “light” Amazon shopping month, but here’s what I bought:

So, I’ve shared before about my monthly facials. One of the treatments that I love the most is dermaplaning. Landyn has preached, “Girl shave your face” for years. While the monthly dermaplane seems to be all that I need, I also know some women do this once a week or twice a month. So, I purchased this “lighted dermaplane facial exfoliator.”

I’ve been using it every other week since July (wanted to use it a few times before sharing!), and I love it. I just use my face wash to get my face sudsy and go from there. Of course, be careful! (And I stay away from my eyebrows! haha)

This one lights up, and I find that I get the best results (I’m still new at doing this…) with natural light and then use the light on this, and I can see the best what I’m doing. Anyway, I guess like shaving your legs….you get quicker and better with time.

When you have a clean face, your beauty products (whether they are drug store or more expensive), can absorb better and makeup looks cleaner.

I know people who also use the Bic or Schick dermaplane razors, but so far this has worked well for me.

If you need a lounging/nighttime bra, this one is so comfy. I originally bought it in black, and just ordered it in nude as well.

These joggers are so cute. There are many color options and patterns…

I wore them with a tank and cardigan to school, but I know I will also pair them with a sweatshirt and tennis shoes when it gets colder outside.

I’m forever trying to drink more water. This water bottle is perfect because it’s lightweight and has the times on the side. I have a tumbler that I take to school because the water stays cold, but then I’ve been drinking at least one full water bottle when I get home from school. There are many color options too.

We were in desperate need of new pillows…especially Travis. He needed a replacement pillow. I ordered these, and they are such great quality. It’s a two pack…and they are very fluffy. When they arrived, they were rolled up flat, and a few hours later they transformed into big soft, but firm pillows.


Tell me you’re in middle school without telling me you are in middle school…Hayden has succumbed to the middle school “fashion” that is Crocs.

After he looked at the mall and couldn’t find his size, we ordered Crocs from Amazon, and they were cheaper than what we were finding in the stores.

Did you know that “Sports mode” means when the strap is on in the back… 😂 I hadn’t heard that and laughed when the kids mentioned it. Hadley has had a white pair since the spring. Crocs are tempting for Homer to snag, so I’ve told them to keep up with their pairs of Crocs!

What have you purchased lately? I’m trying to not overdo it with my Amazon purchases the next couple of months as November and December are bigger spending months with birthdays and Christmas.

I will probably have a post for tomorrow, but come back on Thursday for some of my fall favorites from Amazon.
