You know the song, “Come fly with me, lets fly, lets fly away.” Today I’m asking you to “Prime” with me! LOL Amazon Prime that is! We have been customers of Amazon since 2005. Wow, I actually just looked it up and saw that. I did not know we have been with Amazon so long! It’s been a wonderful relationship too, we are Prime members and very much enjoy the 2 day shipping. In larger cities you have access to even more, but I’m content with 2 day shipping. It’s a huge help depending on where you live/ or are stationed. I’m proud to say, I am an Amazon lover. Keep reading til the end, I’ve got a fun giveaway that I’m sponsoring for you, my fantastic readers! By the way, this is not a sponsored post. I am sharing my love of Amazon and providing the giveaway out of my own pocket.

FIRE HD 8
Back in April I met with Amazon during Hispanicize in Miami. I received this Fire HD 8 and cool battery pack. While you know I have an Echo Show, I also enjoy streaming videos on my new Fire HD 8. I met with Amazon again in October and learned even more about some new products that are available! Keep reading to learn about them.

I’ve shown pictures of my Echo Show since I gifted it to myself last year. Attention Military families! Last Christmas we pcs’d to Fort Polk from Fort Gordon. The hubs, being the proactive soldier that he is decided to get our house packed up super early. Well our tv got packed up as well and we used my Echo Show as a way to keep us entertained. Tablets are great, but if you’d rather have something that can sit on the shelf like a tv, the Echo Show is the way to go! The Echo Show was upgraded this year too. Check out the new 2nd generation below:
One of the things that I asked the Amazon team was when would Hulu and Netflix be available on the Echo Show. Yes, I honestly have my Show sitting on my desk and when I hit moments of “let’s change it up” I ask Alexa to show me my Prime Video options. If I could watch Netflix and Hulu, I’d probably never go to the living room to watch tv anymore! LOL One of the cool features is that I can make phone calls from my Show! YES!! And if any of your friends of family have an Amazon device that you can call from, you can ask Alexa to “Call my dad” or whomever. Don’t tell my dad, but I got them an Echo Spot for Christmas. So I’ll be video chatting with them in the new year! This is perfect for military families that are apart! I’ll be looking to get my sisters one as well so we can all video chat! Check out the Echo Spot by clicking on the image below.
KIDS ECHO DOT
My niece Makenzie is a bright girl. She’s always asking questions and wanting to learn about new things so the Kids Echo Dot was the perfect gift for her! I’m super pumped for her to start using it and can’t wait to hear what she thinks of Alexa! The Kids Dot has a lot of really cool apps and add ons available.

Since Alexa is built in the cloud, she’ll get smarter every day with new kid and parent-friendly features, skills, Audible books, music, Q&A, and more.
Amazon FreeTime on Alexa includes a new set of parental controls and family-focused features such as explicit song filtering, bedtime limits, educational Q&A, household communications, positive reinforcement for using the word “please,” disabled voice purchasing, and more—for free
