You know how they say you’re the best parent before you are one!? Well here is a perfect instance. I spent some time living in St. Croix, Virgin Islands when I was younger and I was given the nickname of “Topless” from all the local Cruzan women. At the age of 5, this was a totally acceptable, dare I even say, cute nickname. So growing up I always looked at those kids on the beach all covered up and thought, “whats the point?” They’re at the beach, let them be naked and play. Plus all those rash guard style swimsuits were NOT cute. Well then I entered motherhood and became one of those over protective, slightly neurotic moms. At a few months old, my daughter, got her first rosy red cheeks from being in the sun a few minutes longer than she should have and I freaked! My poor baby! That is when I realized I needed to be extra cautious with her delicate skin. Living in Florida, I had plenty of cute bathing suits that had been gifted to our daughter but nothing  seemed suitable. That’s about the time my love of SwimZip began. We started ISR (Infant self rescue) swim lessons at age 6 months and I knew I needed something safe for her to wear. We bought our first SwimZip bathing suit and its been a love affair ever since! Not only were the suits EXTREMELY ADORABLE but they also were SO practical and SUN SAFE. I mean, seriously! Any mother of a 6 month old knows that getting your child dressed is like the worst experience ever for them. You’d think I was pinching her with every limb I tried to remove to from that article of clothing. Well try removing a wet, sopping bathing suit after a challenging swim lesson. Another win for SwimZip, with one swift zip up or down the suit is ON/OFF! You’d almost think a mom herself designed them ;). My husband and I both have our SwimZips as well so I guess you could say its a family affair! I have been so fortunate to form a friendship with Betsy (the owner of SwimZip), even if it has just been via the web! She makes an amazing product and I’m proud to support her in her mission to help keep your entire family sun safe! They are also celebrating their ONE year anniversary since appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank, so go on over and check them out! You won’t regret it. Summer will be here before you know it (or at least I’m sure a lot of you are praying it will be) so be ready and gear up!

  • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
  • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
  • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
  • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
  • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
  • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
