In the weeks that Sophia has had her first pair of Bluebeard Shorts in Poppy Pink they have been washed about 10 times! Dare I say they are even softer than the first time she wore them! The quality is just that good! I love the way they sit on her little baby hips too! I can't lie... I secretly wish I owned a pair!

Knox Lee Threads

We are Rocking KNOX LEE THREADS this 4th of July!!
 We have encountered many brands on our blogging journey and there are a few that strike a cord. I LOVE success stories and I especially love mama's that really go for what they want! There is something so empowering about it! The Mama Mastermind behind Knox Lee Threads (named after her super adorable son) founded the idea when she wanted a certain fashion for her son but was on a limited budget from being a single mom... being the superstar that she is, she decided the next best thing was to become an entrepreneur and start her own line! Amazing Right?!?! Knox Lee Threads has the most adorable line and my rebel child fits right in!

Blushing Paper

So My wedding happened...then I disappeared!!! Ha! It was everything I could have dreamed of and then some!! But after it was over it took awhile for all the excitement to die down. I was of course a sucker for details during the whole wedding process and one of my favorites was a Hashtag sign that was made by Blushing Paper!!!

I'm still waiting for professional pictures to come back (waiting is torture haha) But I will update when they come in! We put them in rustic frames!
Here is a bit more about this fabulous company!!
The Evolution of Blushing Paper
"The Blushing Paper Store evolved from my love of crafting, design, and party planning. I have to admit that I am the repeat brides maid, and well...never the bride. As the brides maid, my imagination ran wild with possibilities when it came to the decor. The big day should be about being in the moment with the one you love, not worrying about the details too much but the beauty IS WITHIN THE D E T A I L S.

Leave the worry up to The Blushing Paper to get all our lovely goods to make your wedding, wall decor, and gifts as unique, personable, and special as possible. I hope you will find all that you need here. Let's make both our dreams come true!"

Well Jen thank you for being truly amazing and artistic!!! You put that magical touch on my wedding and I am so grateful!

Not only is Blushing Paper the most dreamy and magical place for wedding goods but the owner is  also a fine art wedding photographer and her website is Go Check it out!!!! Amazing is an understatement!! This Girl ROCKS!!!

Book Review "Why is Dad So Mad" By Seth Kastle

I have done hundreds of reviews and none of them have struck me on a more personal level than the book "Why is Dad So Mad" written by Seth Kastle. I come from a strong military family stemming way back. My brother and I both Navy Brats and born in Navy Hospitals. We know the sacrifice that goes into serving, protecting and honoring your country!

The Arrival:  I waited eagerly as the mailman pulled into our quiet neighborhood the day I knew the book would arrive. My nerves on end knowing that this book was written because Seth Kastle's life was changed, knowing that he needed to do this for his family, knowing that I was safely reading it in my home because of him, because of all the brave men and woman willing to sacrifice their lives to protect us. I carefully read each page as my wiggly jumping toddler pointed at the pages.... "HOT" she says as we get to the page with the lion that has a fire in his chest. Yes, Sophia "HOT" that Daddy has a fire in his heart, he has that fire there because he was away protecting our country. She giggles and I feel a warmth of her innocence, knowing she nor I could ever fully comprehend what Seth Kastle, a now retired Company First Sergeant has endured. Or what the countless others have...yet we are so very grateful for this book. It actually amazes me that there are not these type of resources for families. PTSD is very real, it is not spoken about enough. Fathers, Mothers, children, friends and other family members struggle.  This book will help explain that feeling to young children in a way they can understand!
This has become one of Sophia's favorite books...she loves to look at all the pictures!

Seth Kastle is the Author of the children’s book Why is Dad So Mad? and the upcoming Why is Mom So Mad?.  Both of these books were written in order to assist military families who are struggling with PTSD.

Seth served 16 years in the Army Reserve, and retired as a Company First Sergeant.  He was deployed in January 2002 to Qatar, and then to Afghanistan for a total of eight months.  He was then deployed to Iraq in January 2003 until April 2004.  He has been married for nearly ten years now to his wife Julia, and has two daughters; Raegan and Kennedy.  He wrote the book Why is Dad So Mad? to try to help his children understand why he is the way he is now.  The overriding purpose of these books is to let children of service members know that no matter what, their parents love them more than anything, despite the challenges that are faced.  Seth resides in Kansas where he is a Professor of Leadership Studies at Fort Hays State University. More information on Seth and these books can be found at

About Seth Kastle, "Through my 16 years in the Army Reserve I served in many capacities culminating in my role as a Company First Sergeant.  I was deployed in January 2002 to Qatar, and then to Afghanistan for a total of eight months.  I was then deployed to Iraq in January 2003 until April 2004.  I have been married for nearly ten years now to my wonderful wife Julia, and we have two daughters; Raegan and Kennedy.  The topic of dealing with PTSD as a parent is something that is very close to my heart.  I have struggled with PTSD for ten years now, my daughters are young so who I am now is all they know.  I wrote the book Why is Dad So Mad? to try to help them understand why I am the way I am now.  This is not who I used to be, but it is who I am now; this is reality.  More than anything I want my daughters as well as the children of other services members to know that no matter what we, as fathers love them more than anything.  Things may not always be picture perfect , but as parents we will always be there for our kids."
Seth Kastle

He truly is a stand up guy, a real American Hero! Proudly continuing to honor his family all the while reaching out and helping thousands others! Thank you Seth for this amazing heartfelt book. It will be cherished in our home and Sophia loves that you autographed it for her.

I am strongly encouraging you all to go out and get a copy, you can purchase them HERE You can also buy in bulk, talk to your local bookstores, urge them to get this book on their shelves!!  

Coming Soon, Seth Kastle's second book "Why is Mom so Mad?"

"To say the resources are limited for fathers who struggle with PTSD is an understatement. However, there is NOTHING that I have found that exists for mothers with combat related PTSD.  We have already started on the follow up book Why is Mom So Mad.  This book was written in consultation with women combat veterans who are mothers, and struggle with PTSD." Kastle

Brush Naked Review

We are Head over Heels For BRUSH NAKED!!!

A better choice for you and for the earth.

FREE Shipping to US and Canada
Our toothbrushes are 100% bamboo - not just the handle but the bristles are wood fibres too. Not all toothbrushes are created to be earth-friendly. Most are plastic which takes 10,000 years to decompose. Millions of plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills every year.

The difference is in the details

Even so-called “eco friendly” toothbrushes often use nylon bristles which have to be plucked out before disposal. brush*naked is different. We’ve gone back to our roots. Everything is created by nature, from the packaging to the product itself. We just assemble. Switching to brush*naked is such a small choice, but considering you’ll use 300 toothbrushes over your life time, you’ll feel good knowing that your environmental footprint for cleaning your teeth is nearly zero.

About Brush Naked,

"The idea for the Brush Naked Bamboo Toothbrush Company was born in a hotel room. I had finished brushing my teeth and looked at my toothbrush. It had seen better days so I threw it in the garbage can. As it hit the bottom of the can I thought to myself, "What a waste! There has to be a better way to prevent hundreds of millions of non-recyclable plastic toothbrushes ending up in landfills every year." I did some research online and found the options for environmentally friendly toothbrushes to be extremely limited. The Brush Naked Bamboo Toothbrush Company was born."
 You can purchases brush-naked toothbrushes of adults and kids! Sophia is currently obsessed with brushing her teeth. She is also leaning her colors so the handles always make a fun teachable moment in the morning and at night!!
Well we are SOLD!!!! We are completely in LOVE with our Brush Naked toothbrushes and we will never go back to plastic! The quality of these toothbrushes is like no other! They really are one of a kind!! You really have to try these brushes out for yourself!!!  And I can't lie it feels REALLY good knowing every time I put that toothbrush in my mouth I am doing my part to help the environment! I want to leave my daughter with a better earth then it is now...That will only happen if we all take a stand and do our part! It is so worth it!

Don't forget to check them out on Facebook HERE You can Purchase Your Toothbrushes over at Brush Naked HERE

They are So awesome over at Brush Naked that they are even giving all my readers a discount code!!!!! Just enter 'sarah10off' and you will get 10% off your order (plus free shipping) until June 30th!!!!!!!!! Thank You Brush Naked, You guys ROCK!!!
