Favorite Recent Amazon Purchases for Kids

amazon favorites, best of amazon prime, toddler essentials, homeschool essentials

I’ll never forget the first time I made an Amazon Prime purchase. I was 20 weeks pregnant and had heard so many moms say this was “the key” with harsh emphasis on “key” so I took their word for it. A yellow baby bath sponge and some swaddles showed up two days later. It was magic. I was hooked. While I’ve been no stranger to a brown prime box on my doorstep, these past few months have ramped up the arrivals a bit since we had 20+ hour of road trip time, a mini-move and a school switch. Here are a few of my more recent purchases plus a couple old favorites just for good measure:

10 Travel Items I’ve Got My Eye On

Keeping in the theme of travel this week, I’m one week out from a quick weekend trip with the kids and less than one month out from moving back to Dallas from our little stint in Memphis. Needless to say, I’ve been evaluating our suitcases and accessories pretty heavily to make sure everything is as practical and efficient as it should be.

Last week I loaded up the car with a cooler, one suitcase and the babes and headed to Nashville. My youngest sister gets married in less than two months (!) and will be making the move to Nashville after the wedding so we decided to help her out with apartment tours. It’s hard to say no to a road trip when the guys have an away game so we decided to take advantage of being a 3 hour drive away from this fun city and hit the road.

What I Eat in a Day

Paleo Whole30 Daily Meals


I’ve been talking quite a bit about food and using food for healing over on Instagram but I’ve still received so many questions about what a day of eating looks like for me. I’d say my diet is a mixture of Whole30, Paleo and AIP as I continue to walk through healing for Hashimoto’s. I’m at the point now where I would prefer to eat my own food than eating at a restaurant which is truly a gift! Here’s a peek into one day of meals and snacks these days.
