Serta with Baby's Journey

I have been a long time lover of Baby's Journey from their bath chairs to bouncy chairs we had it all! I was thrilled when I saw the new Serta's Perfect Sleeper Bed Bumpers! Sophia has officially gotten a "Big" girl bed in her room. My nerves have been all over the place because she moves around ALOT when she sleeps! There is no doubt she would end up on the floor! Sophia refused to use those big gate like metal/mesh bed rails and her 3 year old voice was heard loud and clear "I'm not a baby!" they made her new big girl bed look like a crib and honestly took away the fun in her getting her big girl bed! I knew we still needed to keep her safe and in her bed at night... that's why I'm in love with the soft foam design by Serta. They slip under the fitted sheet (stays in place!!) so it is hidden and is extra long (unlike the bed rails I've seen)!! The best part, they fold in half so we can take them with us when we go on vacation! No more building pillow walls or having to worry....they fold up for easy packing too! They really thought of it all!! I highly recommend the Serta's Perfect Sleeper Bed Bumpers! It comes in a set of two and is great quality! We couldn't be happier!!

Serta’s Perfect Sleeper® Bed Bumpers prevents children from falling or rolling off the bed.  The ideal solution for transitions from crib to twin bed.  The soft foam design slips underneath the fitted sheet to stay in place. Can be used on Twin Full, Queen & King size beds.  Great for home, sleepovers and hotels.

I received this product free for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion.


I have a HUGE obsession with Freshly Picked... most of you know this and have seen Sophia since birth rocking her sweet FP moccasins! From her first roll over, first time crawling to her very first steps...Freshly Picked has been there every step of the way! Now that Sophia is turning 4 I can honestly tell you Freshly Picked has withstood ALL of her baby/toddler senagiagans she wore them day in day out and they are STILL in great condition...they have been passed down to Ari! I was so excited for Ari to get her first pair of FP Mocks and choosing is no easy feet! After hours of narrowing down my top choices we went with the CAREBEARS! They are the sweetest moccasins ever! Take a peek...
Ari scored the ones called CAREBEARS.
 These soft sole leather moccasins have become a staple in our home. We love that both of our girls love and enjoy them as much as us! Sophia's first pair of "Golds" have been stored away in her keepsake box...possibly to be worn by a son or daughter of her own one day! We have celebrated birthdays, weddings, holidays and christenings sporting our FP! #foreverystep

Part of the FP x Care Bears collection! Share your Care Bears nostalgia with this fun pink moccasin featuring classic Care Bears and rainbows. Paired with a pink peony sole featuring a special FP x Care Bears collaboration logo.
  • Elastic at the opening makes the shoes easy to put on, easy to take off, and most importantly: they stay on your child’s foot. 
  • Our soft-soled moccs are made with 100% durable, wear-tested leather and are suitable for infants and toddlers alike. 
  • Officially licensed Care Bears product. 

THEY ARE JUST TOOOOO CUTE!!!! Excited to see where these FP moccasins will take her!
You can find Freshly Picked on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest Go LIKE AND FOLLOW and let me see your babes in their FP Moccasins use the HASHTAG #foreverystep

I can not rave enough about this company! They started with a dream from a mama and lots of hard work... through that Freshly Picked was born! The quality is beyond any "shoe" I have experienced and they are made to last! This has been the ONLY footwear that has not fallen off of Sophia's and Arabella's feet (even as a babies!) Not to mention they are super comfortable... GO SCORE your babes a pair....or 5!

Summer's End

 I can't believe summer came and went....feels like it flew by! We spent our days mostly outdoors!! My dad was up from Florida and we luxury camped, beached it, biked, had picnics, went to museums, went to every park imaginable, and hung out at home...lounging in the front yard with the pups! Sophia is so ready for fall though, so am I!! We LOVE to decorate and may have found our new favorite store for all things home dΓ©cor (more on that later!) For now we are trying to sort through clothes and get fall ready! Sophia will be 4 in October and Arabella will be the Big NUMBER ONE!!! Throwing birthdays for me is like planning a wedding.... you all know this! The plans have been in the works and we are getting ready for the Circus Extravaganza!! As with all of Sophia's Birthdays I will be working with some amazing companies that I am excited to share with you!!! From Birthday invites, favors to edible treats and everything in between! Stay Tuned... lots of DIY videos in the coming weeks.... it is the final countdown OCTOBER 1st will be here soon!!

HAPPY END OF SUMMER YALL ..................... Love the Ari and So

Kangaroo Karry

Image may contain: 3 people, baby

Hey Momma's and Daddy's!!! It has been BUSY around our house...between getting used to life being a mommy of TWO girls and this gorgeous New England summer! This summer has been filled with beaches, camping, pools, picnics, graduations, birthday parties and just lazy summer days! Last week I received a package from Kangaroo Karry and I have been going CRAZY over this masterful designed baby carrier! You all know I've done my fair share of reviews when it came to baby carriers....so many reviews from various companies when Sophia was born that when Arabella was born I was frankly burnt out and kindly declined any offers to review them. I ended up doing the good ole hip pop/back breaking carry! HaHa!! They were all the same...until I saw the one by Kangaroo Karry! I am OBSESSED with this Baby Carrier... this particular one is called the Little Hopper! Seriously the only baby carrier you will need!!! Arabella is 9 months old and Sophia is 3 and half and they BOTH use it.... yes you heard that right, a toddler and a baby!

The level of awesomeness has to just be shown in pictures because I'm not even sure my words can do it justice... oh did I note that the carrier weighs like nothing! The seat that hold the babies and toddlers is made of the same material as bike helmets so it is super light weight! It has long straps...maybe the first carrier that I'm not spending twenty minutes prepping before I put the baby in! I remember getting so frustrated with the carriers for Sophia that I ended up just giving up! I LOVE this family owned business! If you have kids, know people expecting or just want to make someone's day that already has a little one.... BUY THIS FOR THEM! My life has just gotten a whole lot easier.... oh and did I mention Daddy's life too! Sophia is a wicked Daddy's girl but imagine lugging around a heavy 3 year old through the mall or out and about. Ralph is able to throw on the waist belt with the seat and isn't breaking his back or popping out his hip! This machine washable baby carrier is a MUST HAVE for all parents! I don't even take my purse with me anymore when we head to the park or out for a family walk! My wristlet, phone, kid snacks and even diapers for Ari fit in the netted pockets of the carrier.... seriously the masterminds behind this product did not miss a step!!! I love when parents make products, they just get it!!! I could go on and on, but I'll just show you some pictures and let you trust my crazy obsessed rant to do the convincing!

STAY TUNED for Daddy Pictures with the Kangaroo Karry after we go Blueberry Picking and BBQ'ing this Weekend!!!

GO SHOP KANGAROO KARRY HERE!!! Don't forget to like and follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

A little bit more from the peeps over at Kangaroo Karry,

Family Home-Based Business

Kangaroo Karry is the result of our real experiences of using the vast array of baby related products, particularly baby and child carriers. We were given, handed down and purchased a collection of baby carriers for each stage of our first child’s life with some that were activity specific. Each of these worked to a certain extent, we both had our favorites, but each have some obvious flaws or missing features were apparent. We found ourselves often saying phrases like ‘if only this had …’ or ‘I could put this on myself if this thing was here…’ and ect. We then found ourselves saying ‘we should have fixed this…’ and ‘we should designed our own…’   And so, we did.
We developed our own line of baby carriers. For infants and small babies, our Joey Wrap is the ORIGINAL and ONLY infant & baby wrap carrier with a pocket. A pocket for handy items like pacifiers, milk bottles, smart phones, snacks… ect. No more dropping your phone on the floor when unwrapping, keep it safe in the POCKET.
Once past the infant stage, our Little Hopper is the only baby & toddler carrier you need. It grows with your child, from 4 months to 4 years. Like a hiking backpack, the weight is carried around your waist. Smaller Moms can carry bigger kids longer and more comfortably. The perfect carrier for life’s everyday adventures.
Dad Designed Gear is truly at play here. With the child’s weight supported on the hip seat, the shoulder straps are kept long for ease of putting on, and tightened with adjustments conveniently in front, right in reach. So easy to use, even new Dads feel comfortable using it.

Our Mission

Our focus is gear for active parents like us; products and enhancements that are not simply marketing gimmicks, but fully functional and practical – for Moms and Dads.
