What I’ve Been Priming Lately

Hi Everyone!

It’s good to be back after a long weekend.  We had a great, pretty chill weekend and I’ve gotta be honest…it was nice to have some downtime.

It’s no secret Amazon Prime makes my life as a work-from-home mom SO MUCH EASIER!  I pretty much am down to skip any in-store shopping if my BFF, Amazon Prime, can deliver to my house in two days instead.  #yesplease  

I shared back in February my latest Amazon orders, again in April, and then in June.  I’ve gotta be honest, you guys seemed to love taking a peek in my Amazon cart.  And I don’t blame you one bit because I was begging you to share your cart with me.

This is What I’ve Been Priming Lately…

This is embarrassing but I must tell you…my name is Erika and I have cracked heels.  I’ve dealt with it for years and it gets better after I pull out all the stops but the second it does I back off and then it’s bad again.  Anyone else?  A friend, who also gets dry heels {I’ll keep his/her identity to myself-ha!} was recently giving me a pep talk so I ordered a few new things to get back on track.  I’ve tried this foot peel before and I liked it…didn’t love it, but decided I’d give it another try.


At our Meet the Teacher Night, most of our teachers add some “Wish List” items to a bulletin board for parents to grab {if they’re interested}.  This year I grabbed, “hand sanitizer” and Amazon Prime made that shopping trip EASY!

I read about this product somewhere online…maybe an article?  Pinterest?  blog post?  I can’t remember and I ordered it because my main skin care concern is black heads and large pores.  I haven’t used this one yet but I’ll let you know what I think.  Has anyone tried this?

After my confession above, I’m not sure this picture needs any explanation.  πŸ™‚


This year my kiddos are eating later then before at school so I ordered these to make sure their lunches stay fresh and cool until lunch time.


I ordered all my kiddos a few new books for the school year.  Each kiddo has to read 20 minutes each night so having a new book or two to read makes that assignment a little more fun.


Britt’s hair is slowly growing in so we cannot afford to have any ponytail holders or hair ties pull any of her precious hair.  I found these that keep her hair from being pulled.  My favorite way to use these is to put her hair in a high pony with a big bow.


My college minister recommended this book to every couple who got engaged.  Tab and I worked through this study {I’m pretty sure there’s both a book and a study} over the phone while being engaged long distance.  One of our favorite couples just got engaged and I ordered this book for them.

I think that about wraps it up for What I’ve Been Priming Lately.  πŸ™‚

Now it’s YOUR turn…what’s in YOUR Amazon cart?

    I ordered that pedicure tool (or cheese grater as my husband calls it) and it worked wonders on my dry feet. Summer is tough on feet for sure! I have a link up today called Prime Purchases for all those online shopping posts. Come check it out! Hope you have a wonderful week! Tanya – The Other Side of the Road

    Have you ever tried bag balm?? So it’s actually used on animals but works WONDERS! You’ll see a huge difference after just once! I slather it on and then out on (old) socks.

    This post is dangerous- because I'm a Prime addict. But I have the pedicure tool, and it works awesome. Keep it in your shower and just use it a few times a week. BUT BEWARE- it works well and go easy because you will saw your foot off if you use it too rough or in an aggressive way. πŸ™‚ But it works great.

    Ok, you'll have to report back on the Babyfoot peel when you try it again. I tried it once after reading all the amazing reviews and it was a total dud for me. My feet peeled everywhere EXCEPT my rough heels! I'll have to look into this bag balm, too.
    My husband doesn't like these Amazon posts because I always fill my cart up with more stuff afterwards! πŸ™‚

    regarding scaly feet LOL:) BUY THIS STUFFFFFF!!! My dermatologist told me about it for my nasty elbows and it's a game changer. I started putting a lite coating on my feet about 2-3 nights a week and my feet are perfect. That's the first time in my life. It used to be prescription only, but now you can get OTC.

    I have HORRIBLE cracked heels too and I'm so self conscious about it. If I work at them every day they stay okay but if I stop at all they go right back to horrible. Can't wait to hear how that stuff works for you!

    How does the foot file work?! I have the roughest feet ever and should order that if it works well.

    Yes to Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing! I just read the first two books this summer with my 9-year-old boy (who has a pesky 2-year-old brother) and he loved it. I can't remember if it's in this one, or the next, but be fore-warned that there is some talk about where babies come from (nothing specific, but you might get some questions), and about Santa not being real :).

    I've got bad heels too! And I don't get pedicures because I'm so ticklish that it's anything but relaxing for me! I have a foot file and I get a weird pleasure in seeing all my dead skin come off. Hahaha!

    I just Primed the Lysa Terkeurst Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl book because of Shay's book review! I've also ordered dog treats, cupcake sprinkles, and a letter board! πŸ™‚
    I love how random these Prime orders can get! I ordered the BabyFeet things last year and have yet to use them because I'm nervous about the peeling! Let us know how you like them!!

    Erika, you have ro order Kerasal intensive foot repair for your heals from Amazon! It literally will change your heels overnight. It’s a super thick ointment so you need to wear socks while it’s on. I have used it for years!

    I don't know if you have a TJ's close to you but their Rose Facial Spray (definitely not the right name but you get the gist) has worked wonders on my skin and large pores. And, it was $4.
