BLACK FRIDAY DEALS!!! (that I either have and LOVE and highly recommend) or that I WANT:
P.S. You can check out
Simply Calphalon Nonstick 10 Piece Cookware Set (SA10H) <— Here’s an early “Cyber Monday” deal (or should we consider it a late “Black Friday” deal?) This Calphalon set is on super-sale!! Almost 4000 reviews and it’s 4.5 stars!!!!! WOW!
Fire TV Stick with 1st Gen Alexa Voice Remote, streaming media player <— I cut the cable over a year ago, and now I’m strictly Firestick & Roku (I absolutely BOTH!! And I have one for each room), but my Firestick is one of the very first ones and IT. IS. Slowwwwwww to load up. Supposedly this one is worlds faster, so at this price? I’m upgrading!!!! 😀 YAY ME!! Plus it has the voice command thingie in it.
Breville BNE800BSS Nespresso Creatista Plus Coffee Espresso Machine, 1, Silver <— OOOOOOHHHH fancy!!! Especially for the coffee lover/gourmet. And quite a significant price cut today!!
Nay: Maryse–last night my son showed me the Instant Pot you’ve got posted above. My crock pot is over 22 years ago, so it may be time for a change!
Victoria: I do love mine!! Do you use the pressure-cooker function? I use it for bone-broth and rice.
Maryse: I only use it for pressure cooking. I should try slow cooking. Oh!! I sautéed veggies in it too…
Victoria: Yes. That’s almost all I use it for too. But hubby makes his slow-cooked chicken in there and browns it first with the saute function.
SHARK ION Robot Vacuum R85 WiFi-Connected with Powerful Suction, XL Dust Bin, Self-Cleaning Brushroll and Voice Control with Alexa or Google Assistant (RV850) <— MINE IS A ROOMBA but I LOVE it, and use it every single week (I used to let it run every day but it does such a good job that I don’t need to anymore). The proof is in the pudding… or, dust bin collector-thingie. Now that I know how convenient and efficient these are, I couldn’t live without it. One less job that I have to do. YAY ME!!!
OHHH!!! Here are the iRobot Roomba 650 Automatic Robotic Vacuum (Certified Refurbished) (refurbished) but for those of you specifically wanting THIS brand, this is an AMAZING price!!!
23andMe DNA Test – Health + Ancestry Personal Genetic Service – includes reports on Health, Wellness, Ancestry & More <— I did mine!! And then I got my mom, sister and aunt to do theirs. Guess what!? We are confirmed related (with the exact percentages and DNA matches and everything)! LOL!!! But no, it showed me SO much more than that (like genetic markers for certain potential issues or cool stuff). And while my mom’s family always thought they had Native American in them, this test confirmed they were 100% European, no ifs, ands, or buts!! HOWEVER I DO have Native American in me!! 😀 Must have come from my father’s side, and now I need to get him and my brother to do this kit!
Kenmore Washer & Dryer bundles!! I don’t need these (mine are LG – my washer is a top loader – and I LOVE them and they sing to me… tee hee!!!), but these are amazingly priced today, and might just make someone’s day! 😉

- First to Fall (Triplets Book 1) by Stacy Lane <— SHE’S RECLUSIVE & HE’S THE HOCKEY STAR… “…Jo Harper has fallen for a hockey player, and she doesn’t even like hockey. A homebody to the extreme, all it took was one night out for her anti-social life to tailspin into celebrities and social media scandals. Though, scandal is a stretch when put into terms about a dead ex. She only speaks to Brooks by happenstance. Although, it’s more sassing than actual talking. Which he likes and demonstrates every opportunity he can. She’s become the girl friend—with a space, as he likes to say—and he’s more than her timid self can handle…”

- Lines (Greyford High Book 1) by Anna B. Doe <— LIVE!!! NERDY GIRL CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS YEAR TO BE OVER WITH… “…For the shy, nerdy girl-next-door that she is, high school is torture and all she wants is for it to be over. Having her heart broken by a popular, womanizing boy all those years ago doesn’t help the matters. Nor does his best friend who still has a habit of mercilessly teasing her.

- Off Balance Series by Lucia Franco <—FORBIDDEN LOVE ALERT!! ANOTHER SQUICKED-OUT RECOMMENDATION FOR THIS ONE!! And both books are super-bargain priced!
Kristy: Just finished book two in Lucia Francos series Off balance. I think the last series that left me in such emotional turmoil. It is so forbidden. Normally this kind of book wouldn’t faze me but there were times I could feel it in my stomach. That squick factor. I loved it and I hated it but it was definitely some truly beautiful writing and I know I’ll be thinking about Ria and Kova for weeks.
