Amazon Favorites

Linking up with Tanya for an Amazon favorites post. This is most of the items we have ordered since my last post. More Christmas presents, birthday decor, some other random things we needed. I ordered several things off Etsy and from local shops for Christmas as well…but the commercial items like the ones below….I am going for the best deal.

Are you still Christmas shopping? What have you ordered from Amazon lately?

Dog Clippers

Mac is looking rough. Like, really rough. The last several years, we have paid to have him groomed a few times a year. With us not going anywhere in several months, he is way past due. I cut his fur with scissors over the summer, but it has grown back out and then some.

Glass Baking Dish

I needed another 9 x 13 pan for Thanksgiving. This OXO one is really awesome. I love that it came with a lid, and can go from freezer to oven to fridge.

Pastry Blender

Can you believe I didn’t have one of these??? I have used it to make homemade biscuits and pie in just the last 3 weeks. Definitely worth it.

Vionic Slippers


My feet are terrible right now. So much pain in my arch and heel. I went to an ortho doctor about a year and a half ago, went through physical therapy and was prescribed orthotics for my shoes. Enter 9 months of walking around barefoot at home way more than I should, working out 5 days a week, and being 37….and my feet are not happy. I had gotten a pair of slippers a few months ago, and I love them but they have no arch support and I have a very high arch. These slippers have been amazing. It is almost immediate relief when I walk in them. This brand can get really expensive, but with this link above….there are some styles for under $30!!! I paid $44 for my ivory colored ones. Full price on these is $70, so anything less than $50 is a win in my book. These are 100% worth it, and I would pay full price for these if I had to.

Hot Wheels Track

Chris ordered this Hot Wheels track and a set of Fast and Furious cars to go with it to play with Zoe. You have to make sure you have lots of indoor entertainment as we enter into winter! It is pretty cool, Zoe turns it on pretty much every day.

Rocket Launcher

Along those same lines, Chris ordered this rocket launcher. This was a HUGE hit in our house. All three of us play with it, and it has provided hours of entertainment for Zoe. If you are needing a gift idea for a kid, this is pretty awesome. Boys and girls would love it.

Solar System Floor Puzzle

I saw this on Danielle’s list originally and immediately ordered it for Zoe. She is obsessed with the moon and stars at night, so I thought it would be cool for her to start learning the rest of the planets too.

Kindi Kids

Zoe is obsessed with Kindi Kids. She already had Summer Peaches, we ordered her Peppa Mint, Donatina and Marsha Mallo for Christmas.

Glow in the Dark Stars

Who had stars on their ceiling growing up??? Such a nostalgic buy and perfect for Zoe’s stocking!

Drawing Pad

Zoe loves to color and draw. We go through a ton of paper in this house, and it is wasteful. This LED pad is perfect for doodles, and would be an excellent travel toy when we start going places again.

Rainbow Z

I ordered this rainbow “Z” to decorate for Zoe’s birthday this week! I love that we can use this as room decor when her party is over.

Rainbow and Garland

I also ordered this rainbow and garland to decorate for her birthday. Again, with intentions of using this in her playroom or bedroom for decor. I got the medium size, and it will be perfect.

    Checking out that glass pan. I really need a lot of new kitchen pots & pans. Mine are getting really old & showing their wear… much like myself – LOL

    I totally remember those rocket launchers from when I was a kid- though pretty sure only my brother got one (he always got the fun toys, lol). I love the rainbow theme for her birthday & yesss so smart to get stuff you can reuse later on.

    I love the birthday decorations you got for Zoe and that they can be used as decor after. That’s awesome. I’m curious about those slippers – I feel like my mom might like those. I have weird feet – I think my arches are normal, but I have something in my gym shoes to help with walking and thankfully they’ve gotten somewhat better. I used to get blisters SO BAD all over my feet, no matter what shoe I wore.

    I love the rainbow decorations, and so cool that you can reuse in the playroom. The Vionic slippers look incredible. Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya – The Other Side of the Road

    Ooooh I need to check out those slippers for all the same problems you listed, and I think I’d love that solar system puzzle just as much as the girls <3

    Love love love the rainbow decorations! I think I’m going to get the rocket launcher and glow in the dark stars for Sheff for Christmas. I love my pastry blender – I think I have the same one.

    I may get the rocket launcher for myself, LOL! The rainbow decorations are beautiful!

    I love my glass cooking pans! Gosh, we go through so much paper with all of their doodles. I’m going to check those drawing boards out.

    I wish I would have invested in dog clippers instead of getting Ginger groomed over the years, smart even not in a pandemic! I have that same glass pan, the lid is so handy!

    The two rectangular Pyrex glass pans that we got for our wedding have gotten so much use over the years. We use them constantly for freezer, fridge, and baking.

    I also reused Wells’ birthday decor in his room. It’s so smart to order for a double purpose and not feel like you’re wasting the money, because you just have to store the decorations indefinitely anyway!

    Oh I want that rainbow letters for the girls. I hope Zoe loves her puzzle. You got some great items on Amazon!!!

    There has been so much to take in this week. Things are changing rapidly in my life, and it s cool that I get to grow and share exciting times with you all.  I was pretty much a baby when I started this blog, and I get just as excited to share these moments with you as I would with my friends and family. With that being said, I m ecstatic to announce that we are building a home !
