Amazon Gift Guides for Kids, Foodies & Techies

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  How has your week been?  It’s been such a blur here, but in the best way!  I’m most excited for the Christmas card pictures we got of the kids this week!  Praise the Lord everyone cooperated (with candy cane bribes, of course) and the pictures are the sweeeeeetest!  I can’t wait to share them with you!  This weekend, I’ll be preparing for Thanksgiving (just a small get together with my family) and getting more things done around the house.  What’s on your agenda?

If you missed it this week, I shared an easy DIY Charcuterie Board, the Best Sales, and Neutral Sweaters all 50% off.  I’ve gotten a start on my Christmas shopping, but still have more to do.  Maybe I should add that to this weekend’s to-do list too!


I love seeing what you love each week, and here’s what topped your list in the home category!  I have and recommend all of these!

We did not anticipate my son loving it as much as he does and we are excited to purchase more tonies for him to enjoy!

4. Moon Lamp • This dimmable light comes with 16 different shades to help illuminate the room. It’s great for decoration or as a night light.
