Amazon Favorites

Linking up with Tanya today for my Amazon purchases. I have been ordering Birthday and Christmas presents like crazy the last few weeks for Zoe. I feel like there are going to be some serious shipping delays the closer to December we get, and I don’t want to take any chances!

Also, Chris and I have our 8th wedding anniversary coming up soon! We really don’t do presents for anniversaries, and stick to making some homemade lasagna and exchanging cards. Since we have moved to a new house and are spending a lot more time in it because 2020….we thought this year we would go all out for Christmas. So you will see some of that in this post as well, as we get stuff collected for our huge outdoor display!

Sewing Kit

One of Zoe’s doll outfits ripped when we were trying to change them. And two of Zoe’s dress up costumes have holes in them. I wish I knew how to sew so I could make all kinds of fun doll clothes for her!!! It would be so cool. But at the bare minimum, I need to be able to fix the ones we have when they tear. This sewing kit has everything one needs for a quick fix.

6 Ft Turkey

Chris ordered this inflatable turkey one night when we were drinking, and completely forgot he ordered it. It was quite the laugh when it came in 2 days later. We are inflatable yard decor people now. Who knew. 2020 does some weird things to you. He has a strobe light in his belly. It brings me so much joy.

Smores Sticks

We have this smores machine, and it only comes with 2 sticks. They are kind of short and there are three of us. I wanted to get some longer ones so I didn’t have to hover over the machine, and could make all of our smores at once. This came with a nice bag to store them in, and a silicone brush!

Day Light Bulbs

These are amazing for the garage. We have two bays and it seriously is brighter than day time in there at night with both of these on.

Collagen Peptides

Listen, I go back and forth on whether collagen is complete bullshit or a great product lol. It is supposed to be great for not only your hair, nails and skin….but also your joints. And it adds protein to my morning acai bowls without altering the taste. I put whey protein in there before, and it totally tastes like whey and not the delicious acai I love so much. I had the Vital Proteins brand before and I didn’t notice a single difference when I took it and when I didn’t. This time around, my hair has never been better. It could also be my hair products, but my nails are stronger too, so this is helping as well.

Mickey Christmas Train

How cute is this train?! Zoe squealed with glee when she saw the box come in the other day. It is so cool! I cant wait to get it set up under our tree.

Polar Bear with Penguins

We have a huge yard with a lot of road frontage between the front and side yard. We are going all out this year and doing a Snoopy scene in our front yard, and North Pole type stuff on the side yard. Enter this giant ass polar bear with penguins. Who doesn’t love penguins?

Santa Clause

If you don’t have a 12 foot Santa, did you even Christmas?


Do you want to build a snowman???

Snoopy Dog House

This will be for part of our Snoopy scene in the front.

Schroeder, Snoopy and Leaning Lucy

And of course, you can’t have a Snoopy scene without these guys! We have some other characters coming from places other than Amazon.

Unicorn Monopoly Junior

This was on Zoe’s Christmas list. Chris’s favorite game in Monopoly, so I think it will be so fun to play the junior version with Zoe.

FurReal Snow Dragon

For whatever reason, this thing soared to the top of Zoe’s Christmas wish list after she viewed the Amazon toy catalog. We watched a video of it together, and it was pretty damn cool looking. It is basically a pet mood ring. I went to order it, and realized the shipping was several weeks out and decided we better get it now! Zoe literally cried for a few days on and off fretting over if she wanted the white one or the purple one. Chris ordered her both lol. She hasn’t asked for anything big this year, and she wanted her snow dragon to have a friend. She is so concerned with all of her toys having friends right now. Its clear that 2020 has taken a toll on her. I cant wait to see her face when she opens not one, but two of these! Here is the purple…

Secret Crush Doll

Another item from the toy catalog that went on Zoe’s must have list. Kids these days are all about the surprise toys. While we know what doll we are actually getting when we purchased this one, there are still a few surprises in the box.

    Jason asked for a Christmas inflatable and I had to veto it… we live on a hill and get so much wind that I don’t feel like chasing that down every day. But I love looking at them! 2020, man! Also that is my go-to collagen when I buy it. Vital Proteins is a scam, lol.

    I’ve been on the fence with the collagen stuff – is there like a sample size I can try? I love all of those inflatables – I wish Bennett would let me deck out the back yard in them. Make it a winter wonderland back there.

    I love that you are going all out with the displays. I’m a huge fan of the Peanuts, and that Turkey is really awesome!!!

    Awww that’s sweet that Zoe wants her toys to all have friends. 2020 has certainly been weird. But it sounds like it’s making her more empathetic, so that’s a plus! I could see my youngest niece liking those little dragons too.

    I love all these inflatables. So festive and fun!

  • Reply Kristin November 4, 2020 at 6:57 am

    The inflatables are probably a lot of fun for Zoe!
    Scott has 100% tired-ordered or maybe drunk-ordered.

    I’ve been seeing a delay in shipping across the board. I want to get a move on things to make they’re here in time. Your turkey is so fun!

  • Reply Anne November 7, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    I just love hearing about how excited Zoe gets about things… and I love that you are going to blow her little mind with TWO of those… whatever-they-ares. ;> (Can you tell I don’t have kids? LOL) You just seem to take so much joy in making her happy – she is lucky to have you as parents!
