KidOFit Shoes {Giveaway} – ENDED

In our house we are fanatics about shoes.  Okay so maybe I’m the fanatic and I’ve now bred fanatics.  I’ll level with you on this one.  I have lots and lots of shoes.  Lots. Of. Shoes.  Not surprising… Ruby loves shoes.  Like seriously loves them.  Probably as much as I do.  When she sees a pair that’s new to her collection she squeals, “Shoes!”  When she sees a new pair to my collection she squeals, “Shoes!”  No matter the size she will put them on and walk around in them.  In addition to being fanatics about shoes around here we also like shoes that are good for our souls.  Ahem.  I mean good for our soles.  Like my pun there?  I want my kids to have shoes that are going to be good for their little growing feet, have the perfect fit, last a long time, and be cute in style.  Can I have it all?  With KidOFit I can!


Recently KidOFit sent these adorable shoes for Ruby:


 IMG_8336Can you tell that she LOVES them???  Yep.  She wears them Every. Single. Day.

But what do I love about them (besides the cute style)?  I love that there’s a strap at the heel that allows the shoes to be wearable for much longer than most shoes.  Totally adjustable!  I also love that KidOFit has a transparent sole, so you can really see where the kiddo’s toes are.  Truly giving them a perfect fit!  Oh and did I mention the cute, cute, cute style???

Here are just a few other styles that can be found at KidOFit:

In addition to all of the above… KidOFit shoes are ergonomically crafted, have an anatomical design, and offer barefoot comfort.  Dr. Ron Bar is the framework behind KidOFit and with a PhD in biomedical engineering he is definitely an expert in creating these shoes!  Yes, I have found the perfect pair of kid’s shoes.  Would you like to win a pair of KidOFit???

New Shoes

Getting new shoes is always more fun when there’s a slide involved.



It also doesn’t hurt when the new shoes happen to be Spider Man ones that light up…

Happy Tuesday!

LoveSac Slippers


Have you heard about all these majorly, dandy comfy Sacs???

I’ll bet that you have.


Have you also heard about these majorly, dandy comfy furniture Sactionals???

I’ll bet that you have.


But have you heard about these majorly, dandy comfy slippers?

I’ll bet that you haven’t, because I had’t before!  🙂

LoveSac sent me a pair and they definitely live up to the LoveSac name of comfiness!

If you haven’t gotten dad something yet for Father’s Day then now is the time to get a pair of these slippers.  Frankly they would make a great gift anytime, so not just for daddy’s big day.  There’s even more than a few great styles and colors to choose from:

Shabby Apple {Giveaway} ***ENDED***

I got an early Mother’s Day present the other day.  It wasn’t from my husband or from my children.  Shabby Apple sent it to me and I’m ever so grateful, because… I simply adore everything Shabby Apple!  Ready to see it?  My favorite clothing company sent me this dress:

Isn’t it gorgeous?

You can count on the fact that I will be wearing it to church on Mother’s Day.

I love the fit.  I love the color.  I love everything about the Coco Bean dress.

What I love most is the versatility of the dress, because I can wear it all summer long and it will carry on quite nicely into the fall/winter.

There are so many things that I need from Shabby Apple, so I’m thinking that my husband and children should get me something Shabby for Mother’s Day.  Don’t you think?  Maybe a Shabby Apple Gift Card???  Yes!  I think that I definitely need one of those.  Audiologist Man I sure hope you are reading this, so you can order me one of those.  🙂

What would I buy with a gift card?

Well, for starters the look of chevron is totally in, so I’m digging this skirt:

Then I would need to order something to have on hand for this fall in a gorgeous mustard color, because I love that color so:

And of course since there are the most adorable little girls dresses then I would have to order this for Ruby:

What do you think of all my picks?  In addition to the gift card I have decided that I will allow Audiologist Man to pick me out a piece of jewelry from Shabby Apple all on his own.  I’ll let you know if he comes through on the present.  Stay tuned.   🙂

Now for the super fun part of featuring Shabby Apple on Dandy Giveaway…

One very lucky winner is going to receive their very own Coco Bean dress!  This is one very dandy giveaway!

*It is mandatory for entry in this giveaway to “Like” Shabby Apple on Facebook, so make sure to like them!  🙂

{Giveaway} Beehive ***ENDED***


It’s spring and the rainy season is upon us in here in the Midwest.  Sort of.  Ok we aren’t exactly getting rain.  I guess that could be interpreted as a kind of half truth.  We definitely aren’t lacking in the precipitation around these parts, but unfortunately our temperatures keep dropping into the 30’s.  Which means that our rain is coming down in the form of snow.  That’s right.  I said SNOW!!!!  In March!  Can you believe it???  I really still cannot.  We had a snowy weekend that is now starting to melt into a sloshy mess.  Good thing the fantastic shop Beehive recently sent me some Cowboy rainBOPS!

Fitting for the girl who spent so many years in San Antonio, don’t ya think?

Have you heard of rainBOPS before?  Well, they are only this really cute line of rainboots.   🙂

Seriously how cute are these?


And these?

Yep both are rainBOPS that can be found at Beehive!

Here’s the thing… Beehive also has great totes and handbags:


Home Decor:
