prime day picks and amazon favorites

Don’t panic.

Seriously, DON’T PANIC.

Except do panic a little, because I have an urgent news announcement (for those that clearly live under a rock without internet. Or Instagram. Or “influencers.” Hey wait, do you have room under there?) Ahem. Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale has collided with Amazon.com's Prime Day, and the result is not only making the entire Internet super annoyed, it’s also unleashing a bomb cyclone of spending (and anxiety), headed straight for your bank account. We should probably all take cover.

my anniversary sale favorites, unless you are John, in which case, what sale?

Okay. Deep breaths. This is what we've trained for, people.

*cues Olympics music, wins gold. In her mind. #itsfine

Not only has Early Access to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale started, it is also Amazon Prime Day. It's like that bomb cyclone storm thing, except on your wallet. #funforall #exceptforjohn

First of all, to shop the Anniversary Sale right now, you're gonna need to get a Nordstrom credit card. And I know, I know, you're certain that the minute you do, creditors will be calling and your credit score will automatically drop from 800 to 300. BUT, if you have actual boundaries, and even a minimal amount of self-discipline, then none of that will happen. Probably. Maybe. Seriously though, here’s what you do

surviving June + some favorites

I know, I know, you thought I had disappeared from the blog. And I would just like to do what I normally do when I need to explain myself: blame it on the kids. Or bronchitis. Actually both. This may shock you, but it turns out that kids actually DON’T understand the concept of mom working from home. I mean, they can SEE YOU. Why shouldn’t you be able to get them a snack/play monster trucks/clean up their rooms? I mean, YOU’RE RIGHT THERE. CLEARLY, YOU’RE AVAILABLE. Summer is STRESSFUL on them, DUH. THEY NEED YOU.

*insert ALL THE EYE ROLLS. Every last one of them.

sherri's may faves (aka belated Mother's Day gift guide)

Let’s call this one A Mother’s Day Gift Guide (If Only Sherri Had Decent Time Management Skills.)

But we know Sherri. So, instead, we'll now refer to this post as Sherri’s May Faves. Don’t forget to stop and read the captions that took me an embarrassingly long time to put together, and ended up causing me to post late. Yeah. It’s totally the CAPTIONS FAULT, and NOT my procrastination and lack of discipline.

best swimsuits under $35

Well, we’re almost to the special time of year that I like to call “Regretting Who You Were the Last 3 Months.”

In other words, it’s Swimsuit Time, y’all. And by “Swimsuit Time,” what I really mean is “stuff yourself into uncomfortable pieces of spandex under florescent lighting, while simultaneously cursing the steady stream of peanut butter M&Ms you fed yourself all winter” Time.

I despise buying bathing suits. I hate trying them on in the Worst Lighting Possible. I hate the way one piece suits make me look like I’m wearing an actual diaper, yet STILL somehow manage to showcase all my flaws. And I hate the way two-pieces make me look like a middle aged lady who has definitely had children come out of her body. Even though that’s exactly what I am. MINOR DETAILS.

valentine's day gift guide (the one we give our husbands)

Ladies, it’s February, and you know what THAT means….it’s time to pick out our own Valentine’s gifts, and let our husbands think it was their idea. And, guess what? This year, you can just HELPFULLY send your significant others this graphic. It’s very professional (ish) and will trick them into thinking they’re in a business meeting. With their boss, i.e. YOU. He will enjoy your carefully thought out list, and will NOT roll his eyes at you. Or say things like, “really, Sherri, AGAIN?” Or “don’t you think I know what you like after 15 years of marriage.”

Sherri's Post-Holiday Sale Roundup: HURRY UP THEY'RE ENDING Edition

It's cold, rainy, and gross outside today, so I say let's blame EVERYTHING on the weather. Like how we are sitting around in our pjs watching Home Alone 2 for the 17th time since Christmas. Or how we JUST HAVE TO peruse the insanely good post-holiday sales online. Maybe even how the drop in barometric pressure caused me to trip and fall onto the "purchase" button and buy everything in my Shopbop cart. #sherrilogic #whoops

So apologies if this post is all over the place, but  I wanted to share the goodness in case you, too, wanted to blame your spending habits on the weather. It may also have something to do with a 4 year old who likes to sneak up behind me and scream. Which results in shrieking, dropping my laptop, and actively trying not to have a heart attack.. #schoolbreakisfun

Now that I’ve recovered from Bo’s attempt to kill me, I bring you…

The Sales You Should Hit Today, You Know, Because of the Weather. *Wink:

amazon and appendicitis

Well, sometimes you plan to have all kinds of great holiday content pre-planned and ready to go the moment Black Friday hits. You just KNOW you’ll be super organized and on top of it, JUST LIKE ALWAYS AND WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING LIKE THAT?

#rude #butalsoaccurate

My goal was to plan content for the entire month of December, well in advance. And by “well in advance,” I mean November 29th, because apparently I DO NOT understand my actual personality or my organizational capabilities.

But, as The People Who Make Up Cheesy Quotes once said, Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. And I’d just like to rephrase that in a way that feels more authentic:

Appendicitis is what happens WHEN YOU’RE BUSY MAKING PLANS. x
