Hey Mommas, Friends and Family!
I've done the hard work for you! I have combed the Amazon Prime Sale (it's on now for one day only, and there is a TON to sift through), and here are some super awesome finds that help out around the house, are good for baby, are better for toddlers and are amazing for momma. Check out my short list so you don't have to spend hours perusing the sale like I did. Ain't nobody got time for that!
Just click the pictures to go directly to the item for more product details. This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small commission.
Hand over heart - I have bought most of these items for my own personal use and for use in our home within the last year. They WORK! Or they are just so darn cute, whichever fits.
I'm heading out on vacation ASAP, so I'm going to throw in a beach vacay wish list too.
See you on the beach, friends!

These lights will outlast us all. Commercial grade. Great for wild weather...ahem...Houston, I'm talking to you.
This one is for the adults. You know you've wanted a fun swing set just for YOU. I have this up in my front yard right now, and it's become a daily activity that I do with the toddler. She laughs until she cries. And then I just cry happy tears...(look away please, I just need a moment to gather myself).
Ok, I price-checked this one over and over for a project wall in Calum's room. I took my 50% off coupon to one of my other fave stores that might rhyme with Bobby Robby, and this matted frame from Amazon won on price every time. The dude got a little frustrated with the hanging mechanism on the back, but all 6 frames are up in a gallery style and we lived to tell the story. Pics are coming soon in next blog post!

Baby jail. I mean you have to do it, Sheriff Meanie, if you want to shower for more than 10 seconds, unload the dishwasher, or just take your mind off of baby for a SPLIT second. Buy yourself some time and peace of mind.
Great neutral play mat. I like the thickness on this one! And more importantly...stylishhhhh.
Because babies smear, throw and spit their dinner everywhere. EVERYWHERE. And while that's just fine at home, it doesn't usually go over well in public.
I loved this camera so much that I bought it twice. Enough said.

Build the robot. Control it with the Jimu Robot App. Promote a little STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) action in the house. Jimu is on sale!
I bought this by Amazon Prime Now for my 3 year old on a whim, and it was on my doorstep in 2 hours. Best. Purchase. Ever. She cleans the house, y'all. She has cleaned the sliding glass door windows. She has cleaned the bathtub. She has cleaned door handles. This should be in every kid's "welcome home from the hospital, so glad you were born" packet.
It comes with a cleaning checklist, you guys!! Maybe I should move this one down to the "mommy" section...
So when I thought about how we really spend our time on rainy weekends, I thought of the countless paintings Ellie has made. If your little one is a creative mind, this is a great way to spend an afternoon indoors. Although not on sale, this one offers storage and has durability.

Gone are the days of high-end barware around the house- not because I have kids but because I'm a klutz and always in a hurry dashing off somewhere (because I have kids). I just need functional and slightly aesthetically pleasing. This set of 4 is under $20.
How's your mom tote that accumulates EVERYTHING working out for ya? A mess? Something weird and sticky in the pocket? Creative little ink drawing by your toddler on the outside like mine? (I can share pics if you are interested #momlife)
Upgrade yourself, girl. How perfect is this one for fall? Yeah, I'm already dreaming of fall weather and clothes.
Who am I kidding? I use my totes 99% of the time, and they take a beating. This one is marked down from $100 to $25!! How is that even possible? AND it's reversible. AND it comes in 9 different color combinations.
Are you a square? Because round is in right now. At least for sunnies. Try a fun pair today for $10!
I've gotten a lot of questions about my hair lately. What am I doing differently? How am I styling it? How did I get my hair mojo back after baby? Well, for starters, it takes a good diet. Nothing replaces that. Secondly, VITAMINS.

Isn't it time you set yourself up with a grown up camera? This is THE beach camera. And for my next trick, I will be attempting a delayed timer set of pics of the extended family on the beach...sign up for my newsletter to see the outtakes. I promise to share! (There may be some foul language)
O.M.G. I was on a wait list for this game at $30 a box. Now it's $12. Whaaa? It is hilarious. It pairs well with a mellow merlot. 1) The mouthgards can get a little uncomfortable if you have a small mouth and accidentally pick up the large mouthgard for an entire game (lesson learned). 2) Who doesn't laugh more with a little merlot and mouthgard action?
I haven't tried this one yet, but I'm so excited to see how Calum enjoys it!
I researched and researched these utility wagons. This one is collapsible, relatively light, has a sturdy wheels for different terrains and didn't break the bank at less than $60. I compared to one at the local sporting goods store that was around $40, and this one won on all accounts. It's still going strong after months of use!
They do say that it is not for toting little humans. There are no safety harnesses or seats, but it has served us well to tote little humans for short distances, while we kept a close on eye on said little humans.
I hope you enjoyed some of my favorites! Sign up for my newsletter to get regular updates. I'm getting my feet underneath me on this blogging thing, and I promise more regular posts are on their way!
