Kayak Warm This Spring With Wetsuit Wearhouse



 Disclosure: I received the wetsuits worn above to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

 It's here! It's here! It's finally here! Ya'll have no idea how much I have been longing for this day; the day that I finally get to take my kayak out on the water! After months of passing by my yak every time I went down to the basement, to say I was excited about finally taking her out would be an understatement. Even though the air is warmer, the water is still bitter cold in our part of West Virginia. To travel safely and keep from a potential bone-chilling moment should we capsize our boats, we turned to our friends at Wetsuit Wearhouse to outfit Ben and I with their best spring Shorties. If you enjoy water sports, you won't want to miss this review!

Free Your Feet With Vivo Barefoot Shoes!


Disclosure: I received the shoes featured in the picture above to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

 I hate socks and shoes. I always have and I probably always will. Probably one of the reasons I love Summer so much is because  I truly get to set my feet free! One of the best sensations in the world is feeling the ground beneath my feet and the air on my toes. I'm sure many of you have heard about the "barefoot" shoe craze. Apparently it's been around for a while but somehow I'm just now discovering it. I began to research all of the benefits of going barefoot and decided this was definitely something I had to try Our family loves being outdoors and when I searched for a company that made barefoot shoes for the whole family, Vivo was at the top of the list. Vivo sent shoes made for our littlest (Levi, age 5) all the way up to my and my hubby (age 36 for the both of us) and we set off to our favorite mountain retreat to test them out. Think going barefoot might be for you? Keep reading!

Get Your Bike Spring Ready With Topeak


Disclosure: I received items featured to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

 Maybe it's because I really ramped up my outdoor excursions and adventures last year. Maybe it's because we got a big snow storm (in APRIL!). Maybe it's just because cabin fever has reached it's height. Whatever the reason, Spring is here and I'm ready to get outside and get on my bike! If there's one activity that is almost as exciting as the event itself, it's the getting ready part. Remember how excited you are to be packing your bags before you go on vacation? It's makes me almost as happy as the vacation itself! Getting my bike Spring ready is part of the fun. It gets my blood pumping and fuels the anticipation of all my upcoming rides. There's one company I always go to when I'm looking to upgrade my bike: Topeak!  Topeak has everything I need to get my wheels ready to ride!

Paddington 2 Reminds Us Why We Love This Bear!


Disclosure: I received a copy of Paddington 2 to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

I will always have a love for Paddington because it was the first movie where my son Elijah truly enjoyed what we all love about films. Paddington was the first movie where Elijah laughed so hard he could barely breath, smiled from ear to ear, and became totally wrapped up in the story of this sweet bear. When we heard Paddington 2 was coming to theaters the whole family knew it was one we had to see. The new installment of Paddington didn't disappoint but reminded us of all the reasons why we love this adorable, lovable bear.
