Ready for Summer in Ruffebutts Swimwear! Official Rufflebutts Ambassador #Rufflebutts #RBAmbassador

*Disclosure: I was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% my own.

As I unveiled last month, we were officially chosen to be a brand ambassador for Rufflebutts! This month, I am featuring their amazing swimwear! After a long, long (did I say LONG?) winter here in Chicagoland, our family is READY for summer.  Summer is our favorite season and one of our favorite activities is swimming.  My in-laws have a beautiful in ground pool just 5 minutes away and we spend many summer weekends in it. That means that we spend hours out in the fun and sun. 
As you know, it's really important to protect your skin from the sun, especially for the little ones in our lives.  With babies, it can be difficult to keep their skin safe and covered with sunscreen and you never know if it has washed off in the water and your baby's skin is vulnerable.  This is when Rufflebutts swimwear saves the day!

Savy Mommy Moments: A Day at the Zoo! Fun, Sun and a Few Bumps in the Road! #ParentingPerspective

It started with a fun day planned at the zoo....

Kids packed up and ready to go by 930am.  It is about an hour drive.

Happy kids, happy parents, driving along in beautiful sunny 70 degree weather.

And then the toddler pukes a mile from the zoo with no where to pull off.

Arrive at the zoo, swap out dirty shirt for a clean one. Wipe down face and hands and pack kids and supplies into stroller/wagon.

Off we go, into the zoo on a beautiful, sunny, and warm day! Grandma and grandpa are here too!

*Disclosure: I was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% my own.

For years I have been admiring the beautiful clothing sold by RuffleButts, so I am really excited to announce that I have been accepted as an official ambassador! Over the course of my ambassadorship with them, I will be bringing you tons of fun review, giveaways, deals and much more!

My first review features a very cute outfit, perfect for spring or summer!

I chose to receive this outfit for Savy Toddler in a size 3T.  Initially upon receiving the outfit, I was blown away by how pretty it is! There are so many beautiful details that make this outfit feel handmade and special.  Below are some of my favorite attributes of this outfit:

Novica Online Artisan Market Review & #Giveaway!

*Disclosure: I was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% my own.

When it comes to gifts, I love ones that are unique and handmade.  They just give the gift recipient that warm fuzzy feeling that you put effort into finding the perfect gift for them and didn't just pick something generic off of a store shelf. 

About Novica (source:
Artisans from around the world (many living in rural communities) don't have the means to sell their work on the international market. NOVICA gives them a free platform to do this, and reach customers on a global scale.
Our teams of local art experts based in every region, provide artisans with all the backup they need. From product development advice, to quality control assistance, we are there to make their listing process as smooth as possible. Watch video.
If you're like us, you care about who you're buying from, and who you're supporting. This is why we go out of our way to capture the real artisan story. On every product page you'll find a portrait and detailed biography of each artist.

I was given the opportunity to shop on the Novica site. It was really so much fun because they have such a beautiful array of handmade artisan items.  Jewelry boxes, leather handbags, sterling silver necklaces, drinking glasses and much more!
After perusing for a few days, I finally decided that I would use the opportunity to purchase a ring to wear in place of my wedding rings.  The reason I need something to wear there is that with dealing with my 3 little ones my rings tend to snag their clothing or are rough on their delicate skin.  But, I don't like not wearing something that symbolizes the love and commitment I have with Savy Daddy.
There are tons of rings that are beautiful on the site and it was hard to choose.  I loved that the website gives you the ability to filter by many different attributes including region of origin, animals, price and many more.
The ring I decided on is the Lover's Knot Fair Trade Sterling Silver Band Ring.

Take the Sting out of Cold and Allergy Season with Zarbee's Naturals!

*Disclosure: I was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% my own.

It's that time of year again when the weather can't decide if it wants to be warm or cold and allergies are in full force! This year, it's rumored that cold season is sticking around longer than expected and allergy season is the worst ever. One of my least favorite things about colds and allergies is the cough that comes with them!  As you know, the cough is annoying.  What is even more annoying is the fact that it's so difficult to find a cough medicine for our little babies and kids that's safe and effective. 

About Zarbee's Naturals

Kids love dogs and my kids are no exception to this rule!  Now, take an ordinary cartoon dog and make them a talking one with superhero powers and you have got yourself a DVD that kids will watch again and again! Martha Speaks is so much fun that even I catch myself watching it.  Martha is a fun loving, kind, talking canine that saves the day in this new set of adventures on DVD. Both Savy Toddler and Savy Preschooler loved watching this and have asked to watch it again and again. And I warn you, you WILL get the fun theme song stuck in your head and MAY catch yourself singing it out loud in public!

*Disclosure: I was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% my own.

As a kid, I loved Arthur, so I was really excited to receive the newest Arthur DVD for my kids.  Arthur is such a well written and composed cartoon.  I love that Arthur is such a kind young character who is learning all about being a respectful and responsible person in the world. Alongside Arthur are several other characters, including his family, friends and community members.  Each one has a unique personality and story to them which makes Arthur very fun and easy to watch.  Personally, this is one DVD I don't mind playing daily and watching alongside my kids.  The kids really enjoy Arthur and definitely have this one at the top of their favorites list.

They were super excited when we popped in the latest Dinosaur Train DVD.  Dinosaur train is so much fun for kids because it features songs, vibrant animations and fun dinosaur characters.  Plus, as a parent, I love that they teach good lessons and the show is kid-friendly and fun! I highly recommend check it out for your little ones. My kids can't get enough and I'm sure yours will feel the same!

There is a very special holiday coming up this weekend! And for years, it was just another day I had to remember to buy something special for my mom.  But now, with 3 children of my own, it's more than just another holiday.  It's a day that holds true meaning and I understand the celebration of it.  Growing up, I didn't full comprehend how special being a mother is or the personal sacrifices a mother makes on a daily basis.  Now, I get it.

I pray every day I can be half the amazing mother, my mom has been to me and continues to be!

I could honestly go on and on about how special mothers are, but realistically, I think this AMAZING video from YouTube sensations, Missy and Bryan Lanning at Daily Bumps, sums it up perfectly! No matter where you are in your journey in Motherhood, please take this Sunday to celebrate you.  Because as they say "You are a Mother!"
