Erin’s Pool Basketball Hoop

The provider of so much entertainment over the past few months in Florida — this basketball hoop has been a slam dunk of Amazon purchases 🏀 If you have a pool, you may want to add this to your list — all of your guests thank you in advance

Erin’s Set of 2 Solar Lanterns

Erin’s Votive Candle Holder Set

Votive Candle Holder Set // Candles

The prettiest table centerpiece I ever did see! Becca on the team bought this in the amber shades and as soon as she shared it I was hitting #addtocart in the blues! It’s a great addition to a dining table, coffee table, kitchen island, etc!

Erin’s Outdoor Couch

Outdoor Couch

Say hello to the couch we’ve had for several summers now from Amazon! This wicker couch comes with UV / water resistant cushions [and don’t worry, there are several other colors available in the event you’re not as daring [aka dumb] as we are to order white ;)] We have owned this for several years now and absolutely love it! It’s comfortable, holds 3-4 people, and fortunately has been easy to wipe clean after my dogs choose to roll their wet dirty selves all over it. 

Erin’s Margaritaville Drink Machine

Margaritaville Drink Machine

Cue the cocktails, I’m ready! When I saw this frozen concoction machine, I knew it had to belong in our house! It is the perfect summer addition to our patio, especially when hosting! It easily makes margaritas, daiquiris, coladas, and smoothies! We’ve had so much fun blending up different recipes [you can find a ton on Pinterest], including one of our favorites listed below! Cleaning up is a breeze and the drinks taste great every time!

Classic Margarita

8 fl oz Gold Tequila
4 fl oz Triple Sec
2 fl oz Lime Juice
2 fl oz Orange Juice
6 fl oz Margarita Mix

Kan Jam & Ladderball

Kan Jam & Ladder Ball Set

Ladderball: hands down the best yard game we purchased last year! It was a hit all summer long with adults and kids! If you don’t own it yet, I highly recommend for hours of fun!

Kan Jam: This is a super popular game that’s fun for all ages! If you can throw a frisbee, you can play this one!

Erin’s Giant Lily Pad Mat

Giant Lily Pad Mat

If you live on the water, meet your new best friend. We bought this floating water pad once we moved into the lake and it is one of the best purchases we’ve made for this place thus far! This bad boy holds up to 20 kids or 8 adults. It comes with a bungee to tie up to your pier or wherever you want it [Shawn drilled a hole on the other end as well to stake it into the water to ensure it doesn’t move around – he bought this to do so] and it’s so comfortable to just lay or sit on and hang out with friends and family. The only thing you’ll have to worry about after getting this float set-up is which drink do you want to enjoy on it first? Cheers!

Traeger Smoker Grill

Traeger Smoker Grill

It’s grilling season, friends, and the time is now to get your grilling setup right! I bought this Traeger for Shawn a few Christmases ago and he still raves about it! From bacon to pizza, burgers and brisket, mac and cheese and jalapeno poppers, we do it all on this thing!



The temps are warmin’ up friends which can only mean one thing…. bugs 🦟🐝🐜 [specifically mosquitos] If you don’t have one of these Thermacell mosquito repellant tools, this is your reminder to order this before they get too bad!  I love that it is scent-free and keeps mosquitos away within a 15-foot radius!
