Currently: Prime Purchases ~ July 2019

What did we do before Amazon Prime and Prime Day? Seriously. I'll just tell ya. I was the last one to jump on the Amazon Prime wagon simply because I didn't know if it would be worth it. I absolutely hate to return things, so I'm more of a "store shopper" than an online shopper, but I will say that since we've become Prime members, our online purchasing has increased. The convenience of ordering things from your computer or phone just can't be beat (as long as I don't have to return it!)!

Today I'm combining two of my favorite monthly linkups: Tanya's Prime Purchases and Anne's Currently. Be sure to stop by their blogs to see what everyone is CURRENTLY PURCHASING! Truth: I did not buy a single thing from the Nordstrom sale in July. All my money went to Amazon this month.
ordering || Here are just a few things I ordered this month and was very pleased with: Thanks to my friend, Kellyann, I ordered this blouse and I absolutely love it! Royal blue is one of my favorite colors to wear and I recently wore it with white jeans to an author book signing in Birmingham. This was my very first Christmas gift that I ordered. Someone will be needing these in a few short weeks for school. I ordered these sheets for Alise and they are very soft. I recently began receiving a jewelry subscription service called, Rocksbox. Maybe you've heard of it? I just received my second mailing for the month and I'm loving it! More about that tomorrow.

watching || Alise and I have been anticipating all summer the reboot for Beverly Hills 90210 and it's happening tomorrow night! We're hosting a watch party for some of our friends and we are SO excited about it! 

cooking || For the last two weekends, I've been making freezer meals to start off the new school year. Everyone's different but my back-to-school love language is having pre-made meals in the freezer for long days at the office, a kid who's starving when she gets home from school, or when I simply don't want to think about what to fix for supper. I've made breakfast burritos, baked ziti, lasagna, cheesy chicken spaghetti, Amy Hannon's chicken enchiladas, gumbo, taco meat, and Pioneer Woman's southern comfort meatballs. Now I think I'm ready for school to start. 

wondering || How in the world do I have a freshman in high school? I'm still in denial, I think, and I'll have to give myself some grace next week when reality sets in. I've enjoyed the teen years (for the most part), but there are days when I miss the cute pink backpacks and walking my Baby Girl in to school to meet her teacher. 

savoring || The last few days of summer! Our first day of school is next Wednesday, so I'm taking some days off from work to enjoy my pool raft and meet up with friends. 

I hope you are enjoying these last few days of summer, Friends! What are YOU currently up to?

    1. Dang, Kellyann! If we lived closer, you could come to our watch party. I heard some things about the show last week on a podcast I was listening too and I hope I'm not disappointed!

  5. Oh I hear you my oldest is starting his sophomore year already and I can absolutely remember walking him into pre-k on his first day of school. I've started priming just about EVERYTHING since our state has done away with bags at all our local stores. I'd rather just have it shipped to my door than deal with always remembering to bring reusable bags everywhere with me (besides I'm kind of grossed out by how hard they are to clean..).

  6. Freshman year...what?! I had a bittersweet realization this week when I thought that this will be the first year that I won't drop the kids off on the first day of school. Crazy how fast they grow up! I can't wait to click over to your online finds. And I didn't know about the BH90210 either! Your freezer cooking?!? Goals! Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases!

  8. Such a smart idea to prep some freezer meals before school starts! I decided to line up a Blue Apron box to at least help me out in the first week :) I'm feeling the bittersweet back-to-school too, with a 1st grader. And feeling like before I know it I'm going to be in your shoes with the high schooler. The cliche about time flying is a cliche for a reason, I guess!

  10. I used to randomly watch 902910, so I am really curious how this "reboot" will be. I hope you have a fun watch party!

  11. Saw you gals on Instagram all pumped about 90210. Hope you had a blast watching together. Don't blink because the high school years will fly by and you will be wondering how you have a college freshman. Enjoy every precious day.

    Had to check out the top that Kellyann recommended. Wow, what a variety of colors it is available in. Will take another look cause I might just need that one, too.
