AWESOME AUGUST AMAZON PURCHASES

This is a really good edition of Amazon purchases. Useful and fabulous purchases for sure. Always love joining Tanya  for her monthly Amazon Link-Up!

1. Visors
I love me some terrycloth visors, but they are very hard to find! I covet the ones I have and many of you have asked me about them for my Instagram walk and talks so here are some great ones for 10 bucks that I own in the pink and the gray, there are like five or six colors.

2. Pop-UP Cards
I am so crazy about these cards! I got the cherry blossom one for my mom last year and she just loved it! The rest of these have been recently for the men in my life and they were crazy about them as well! The golf cart was for Mr. Nine, the horses for my cowboy Uncle Tex and the bee for my bestie Laura's husband Wayne who is a genuine beekeeper as a Hobby!

3. Softest Sweatshirt w/Pockets!
This sweatshirt is so soft! In fact, I will use one of my favorite phrases, “it’s like butter!” And, big, huge plus, it has pockets and it covers your butt! Lots of colors here too!

BUY SWEATSHIRT HERE

4. Lighted Magnifying Glass
My mom got us one of these awhile back and at first, it was kind of a joke about our aging eyes but my goodness how we love this thing and it has come in handy on more occasions that I can tell you! So, my dad had a birthday this past month and I got him one and he just loves it!

5. White Dress
I do not own many white dresses but this baby doll one with the sweet tiers is perfect and it’s lined!

6. You are my Sunshine
Wooden Music Boxes
Now, let me tell you this is the sweetest little gift idea! It’s small enough to hold in the palm of your hand and the Wood engraving on it is so intricate! I loved wind up jewelry boxes that played music as a girl, so I really love this! Plus, the underside lids are available in several different designs with some pertinent to certain family members.

7. Lock Necklace
Little did I know, locks are a big thing right now in necklaces along with chain lengths. This goodie is under $10!
BUY NECKLACE HERE

8. Extendable Reach (20 ft) Duster
How I love this thing! This extendable gem is great for high up cobwebs especially. I use ours outside for those and have a mighty fun time doing it with this. You could also use it as a duster outside or in!


BUY DUSTER HERE

9. Hair Mask
With dry and brittle hair from years of hair coloring, oh how I love a good hair mask! This Maui Moisture is one of the best, smells so good and under $7! Very health and environmentally conscious as well!

Happy Amazon-ing

off to a great start!!

FRIDAY FAVORITES....NOT SO PERFECT EDITION

This is a very interesting addition to Friday Favorites because it’s some of the not so perfect, sad and disappointing things in life. Often, we showcase our best on the blog, but I decided to do a little something different.

1. Daisy Mae
I really don’t know what this day is going to hold for me as it is the one year anniversary of our sweet Daisy Mae‘s passing! It is so crazy that in the months after she passed, so many of you friends and bloggers had your dear fur babies leave this world and you know how much I empathize with you! I’m not going to go into all my feelings on her loss as time does ease the pain a little bit, but I think this Post I wrote on it last year sums it all up from my heart!
And I am beyond ready for a new doggie, in fact I NEED a new pup for my sanity but Mr. Nine is not ready…boo!


2. Regis
We lost one of the most amazing men that the entertainment world ever created and that was Regis Philbin. One of a kind and a heart of gold! I was lucky enough to meet Regis on a couple occasions and he even had photos of the 2 us and he and my mom in his office. We shared a love for Notre Dame, and I am beyond thrilled that he will be buried on his beloved ND Fighting Irish campus! He was Notre Dame‘s number one fan of all time and an alma mater! I loved him with Kelly but it was his magic with Kathie Lee that had me mesmerized every morning!

4. Not So Perfect Pics but CUTE Outfit
Well, I have to say, this ended up being the perfect, “not perfect,” example of how things don’t always go as planned. Today, on Instagram, I was supposed to collectively join a group of ladies in showcasing a not so perfect picture. We always put our best out there so one of the ladies found an awesome quote and we were all going to share a non-perfect photo. Well, that got pushed off a week and at first, I was upset because I wanted it to coincide with my blog post today but, that’s just it, that’s how life goes and sometimes we just have to go with the flow of it, so I’ve included a not perfect picture here and I’ll post to Insta next week. In the meantime, it gave me a great reason to skip posting to Insta today and take a breather!
Nothing like a shuttlecock coming at ya or maybe getting stuck in your bun?

5. Misc. STUFF
Post of the Week ~ Feels Like Pajama's

MORE Canceled Plans
Never in a million years did I think in March that Covid-19 would still be around come this Fall. But unfortunately plans continue to get canceled and I made a decision this week about one of the things I was MOST excited about this year! Going to Cali in September to stay at Lisa's with my Style Six crew. This would been our 3rd annual meet up but we decided it was best not to fly and for me, not to risk taking any germs from Indiana to my friends. Love them so! Fingers and Toes crossed for 2021!


The Yeti artender...on Hiatus
Hey, for the small majority of you that are loving The Yeti Bartender, it’s going to be on hiatus for a few weeks. Summer weather has given me a reprieve and I just want to spend it outside drinking a cold seltzer instead of concocting and trying to come up with new cocktail recipes. Don’t worry, it will probably be back this Fall as I can think of a few colder weather month cocktails that you just might love!

Memes 
These trying times are far from perfect, but at least all the Memes have given some laughs and smiles.

and My FAV


....And then Something Sweet happens
 THE BLUE HERON
This beautiful bird comes to the pond every year and while I’ve gotten some good pictures of him, the perfect shot just seems to allude me. I was taking video and pictures of him on the step railing the other morning and just kept snapping. Just when I thought I would never get a perfect shot of him, boom there it is. This is just to tell you that when things don’t go perfectly, then you turn around and sometimes they do. Never give up. No matter how many sad things happen in life, there’s so much joy! It’s all around us!


CHEERS to a Perfectly imperfect weekend!!

FEELS LIKE PAJAMAS!

I am not kidding you friends; this is my all-time favorite jumpsuit! It’s just a simple black drawstring jogger jumpsuit but it’s the most comfortable I’ve ever known and the easiest to get up and down!


I wore it on the adventure day home from the beach vacation and I was ever so comfortable, and I kept telling Mr. Nine, it felt like I was wearing jammies! I have linked up several for you because this style by daily ritual from Amazon that is just as great! They make a Cropped Version too with a wider leg that I also own!
