My latest Amazon finds

Hi! It’s been a while since I have shown my face over here! Thanks for sticking with me through all the chaos of stay at home mom life! Having two little ones makes it increasingly difficult to get out sometimes and Amazon is pretty much our go to for the necessities and fun stuff! I thought I’d share some of our latest finds and let you know how we are liking them so far!

Kona Coffee– We stumbled on this K-cup coffee pod after wanting some Kona blend coffee, missing Hawaii. We now buy the 100 count box and have added it to our subscriptions. We are loving it! It’s smooth and affordable at just around $22 for the subscription. It is an Amazon owned brand, Happy Belly.

Wooden Dish drying rack– I got this drying rack after I got sick of piling dishes up on the counter and then nothing was dry. I had the Boon drying lawn for bottles and things for awhile and finally was able to get rid of that. I am loving this bamboo drying rack so far. I have piled heavy pots on it and then it still has room for everyday dishes. Highly recommend!

Sewing clips– The name brand bigger sewing clips are super expensive, so I continued to pin everything for awhile. These little sewing clips are perfect for making tea towels or other things you need to clip the edges. They have held up well and even come in a cute little tin can. They are easier to clip and unclip then being stuck with pins all day too!

Make Something Good Today book– This book is written by Erin and Ben Napier from the hit HGTV show, Hometown. Not only do I love their show, but their hearts are evident in this book. They tell their story of how they met and chase their dreams. I haven’t finished the book yet, but am so excited every time I read it. They are the most modest, down to earth people. Can I please meet you someday??

Wet brush– I finally got Savannah her own hairbrush 🙂 Her hair rarely needed brushing, but now that we have this, she doesn’t mind and it leaves her hair so soft. As the name implies, you can use the brush with wet or dry hair. As with any hairbrush, you brush bottom to top and it works great! Would buy again or for niece gifts!

Amazon photos– Did you know that with Amazon Prime, you get access to free shipping on photos and unlimited free photo storage? I have been ordering prints from Amazon Photos for several years now and it is my go to! The quality is excellent and so is customer service.

Hunter boots– Ive worn these about three or four times now and the more I wear them, the more comfortable they get! When sizing, they run a little big, but consider if you will wear socks with them. I like to wear thicker socks with them for warmth and for more cushion against the back where it may rub. I love the red color for winter. It gives that extra pop of color! Perfect for Christmas or Valentine’s Day too.

That’s it for now! Considering, I am always ordering from there I will have more to share! Let me know if you have questions about anything!

Thanks for reading,

Project Paper Hearts

With the New Year comes new commitments and organizations looking for help. Part of the reason I started this blog was to encourage military spouses and empower our soldiers. Jo My Gosh, one of my favorite inspiring military bloggers, is working on a project, called Project Paper Hearts to make Valentine’s for children at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. I immediately wanted to take part and serve by sending care packages to these children. But we can’t do it alone! They are in need of 200 Valentines. View some pictures of the cute Valentine’s created so far!


Here are some things to remember:

1. When making your Valentine’s, be creative, think outside the box. Take pictures and share them on social media!

2. Involve your kids! What a great hands on project and teaching kids to give back.

3. Show them off! Tweet your photographs #projectpaperheartsJMG

4. Are you single this Valentine’s day? What a great way to spend it.

5. Mail them by Feb 6, to:

Project Paper Hearts

PO Box 331

Annville PA  17003

The only guidelines we ask you to follow are:

  • Avoid using phrases like “Get Well Soon” or anything relating to the child’s illness
  • Avoid religious references, since St. Jude treats children of varying backgrounds
  • You may sign your valentine, but use only your first name and do not add any contact information

Visit the website for more details. Goal is 200 Valentines!

If you are interested in having a Valentine making party, send me a message! This is going to be a lot of fun!

Maybe you can help me send some care packages to our soldiers next! Stay tuned for some creative ideas on making care packages.
