HAPPY MONDAY & HAPPY PRIME DAY!!! TWO WHOLE DAYS??? Gasp!!! So because of that, on top of the latest book releases, I’ll include my yearly Prime Day sale finds (the ones that I either LOVE because I’ve used, or ones that I want, or that pertain to us in some way). 😉 Goodies all around!!
P.S. Keep checking back ’cause I’ll be adding more as I go, throughout the day.
1.) I had the most amazing Friday night date night, with friends. Laughed so hard, and ate the most decadent food (I had filet minion, and wild mushrooms, and an heirloom tomato salad) BUT!!
2.) I cheated on my Keto by having a few bites of a dessert. YIKES!!! And ummm… a pineapple infused Stoli Vodka drink. HOLY MOLY that was delicious, and I don’t think there was enough “pineapple juice” in it to ’cause me issue (as it was infused, not actually juice mixed in) but yeah… that cheesecake bite, and that flourless chocolate cake bite (or 3)… eeeeeeep!!!
3.) I *think* I had a touch of Keto flu yesterday all day (probably ’cause I went right back to Keto after my Friday feast), and I was just so tired, and didn’t feel good at all. The only thing I could stomach was another heirloom tomato and cucumber salad (with olive oil, feta cheese, lemon juice and salt and pepper). I ate that, and ONLY that all day. And today I’m back to myself again! 😀

➔➔ ALL THE PRIME DAY SALES LIVE <— right now.
- AMAZON FIRESTICK!! <— OMG what a price. I couldn’t live without mine and I love that I can just talk into the remote what show (or movie) I want, and it pulls up my options for me!! BEST. THING. EVER!!! I think I DID pay full price for mine a few months ago (I upgraded from the original super-slow one) and this one rocks my world. BUT AT THIS PRICE?? *thud* No wait… THIS is the one I have (the 4K which is the fastest… and still… THAT PRICE??? WHOA!!)
- Kindle Paperwhite – Now Waterproof with 2x the Storage – Includes Special Offers <— OMG!!!! AMAZING DEAL ON THIS & I JUST upgraded my old 1st generation paper white to this one today. I wanted an Oasis ’cause it’s waterproof, but come to find out THIS ONE IS WATERPROOF TOO!! MINE!!! I did the whole “trade-in” of my old one and everything and got an even better deal. *thud* I AM SO EXCITED!!
- ROOMBA PRIME DAY SALE <— The LOVE of my housekeeping life. The “Roomba 690” model is all I actually need and other than a dishwasher and a washing machine and dryer, THIS is my biggest life saver and IT DOES THE JOB!!!! My house is always vacuumed and swept, and I’m never the one that has to do the work. I’ve had mine for 2 years now? It’s still absolutely perfect, and when it dies, I will immediately buy another. No ifs, ands or buts. P.S. She even makes those pretty vacuum marks in the carpet. I don’t know why, but love seeing those.
- Amazon ECHO <— Of course mine if a few years old (I have a first generation I think) but I use her daily as my alarm clock (just last night, when I set my alarm, she also asked me if I wanted her to play soothing sleep sounds for me too? GASP!! I forgot she could do that!! I said yes and she chose a thunderstorm for me). I mean I use her for some basic stuff, and don’t even come close to using her full potential. Mostly alarms, to play Amazon Prime music, to set timers, to ask her questions about stuff that I can’t remember… to play my audiobooks for me while I work. I need to look into what else she can do.
- The INSTANT POT <— PRIME DAY sale (what I got mine for a year or so ago) and it is another love of my life. I use it as much as I use my crock pot (I make the most AMAZING “Fasolakia” in it – Greek Green Beans that I’m totally addicted to – along with so many other things. It makes the most perfect steamed broccoli, boiled eggs, and full-on meals in no time. There are SO many recipes out there to play with, let alone making “staples”.
- PNY Turbo 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive <— PRIME DAY SUPER-DEAL! I just ordered 2 (that’s all they’d let me check out with, at this price). But I AM HAPPY!!! I needed these badly!!
Samsonite Centric Expandable Hardside Luggage Set with Spinner Wheels, 2-Piece (20/24), Black <— PRIME DAY FIND!! PERFECT FOR OUR BOOK SIGNING TRIPS!! Samsonite and a great price at that!! OMG look at the crazy original price on these!!) 😲 GASP!! Comes in black or “blue slate”. I just had to add them to today’s blog post… to good of a price to ignore.
- 23andMe DNA kit <— I got mine during a Prime Day 2 years ago, and it has developed into an incredible wealth of info (I’m mostly french but with a good chunk of Irish). LOL!! I also have the “health” options and I’ve learned so much about myself (and my heritage). I need to send one to my brother now! 😀 P.S. The Prime Day sale is on the DNA kit with the “whole shebang”.
- Wireless Bose Headphones for all of our audiobook listening!!! These look comfy! And here are the in-ear ones!
Repel Windproof Travel Umbrella with Teflon Coating <— Okay I know this sounds ridiculous… but I don’t actually have an umbrella. 😕 And of course, in Florida, we are in the super-rainy season right now, so I end up borrowing whatever umbrella is around (IF I can). And now, because of Prime Day… I just got THIS one (and OMG look at all the reviews!! Supposedly this one was featured on the Today show or a show like that…). So while I didn’t get the choice of pretty colors (only black is on sale right now), I now, not only have an umbrella, but I have a kick-ass one!!!
