Like most families today, technology is a big thing in our home. When given the opportunity to receive the new Kidizoom Smartwatch DX in Vivid Violet from VTech for the purpose of a blog review, I knew our daughter would love it. In fact she doesn't want to take it off.

VTech is introducing the next generation of the award-winning Kidizoom® Smartwatch, the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX. Not only does the new Kidizoom Smartwatch DX offer a higher performance than the original, with better specs including double the internal memory, improved image quality and new features, the sleek, stylish smartwatch is the perfect accessory to any fashion forward fall outfit!

  • The VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX is an even smarter watch for kids with better specs including double the internal memory and improved image quality, plus new features such as exciting motion-activated games, eye-catching 3D clock faces and new tools to hone basic math skills
  • Young photographers can take tons of pictures and videos and get creative with fun photo effects, video camera and voice recorder with voice-changing effects
  • In addition to the alarm, timer and stopwatch, the Kidizoom Smartwatch DX has 2 new tools including a calendar feature and a calculator so your child can work out simple addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems
  • Little fashionistas will love the new design and trendy colors available, including blue, vivid violet, pink, red and camouflage

  • Features rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and includes micro USB cable to upload photos/videos as well as recharge the battery
  • More than just a watch, it's the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX!

There are a lot of things I love about the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX. First and most importantly, our 5 year old daughter loves it and has no difficulty using it on her own. As a mom I love that it has a long battery life, we charge ours at the end of each day. I also love that it is splash proof, because accidents do happen. Our daughter loves playing the games, including the time teaching app Time Master and encouraging fun learning is always one of our goals. She loves being able to express creativity with the camera and photo effects available. She enjoys using the pedometer to track her steps, another great way to encourage physical activity. Maybe even best of all, it even has a volume control!!!

Making Home Affordable - Getting Foreclosure Assistance

The financial difficulties that many families are facing in today's tough economic times are not only heartbreaking but more common than you may even know. If you or someone you love if facing foreclosure, you are not alone. There is help available, here is some information that may be able to help you get through this difficult time.

So many families are in financial distress, that is why I’m reaching out to you today through this sponsored Foreclosure Assistance Campaign on behalf of the Ad Council, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to ask for your support in spreading the word that real help is available to families who are behind on their mortgage payments, or worried about how they will make the next one. Nearly one in 17 homeowners nationwide has fallen behind on his or her mortgage payments, putting them at a higher risk of foreclosure. Homeowners should not feel alone, but many do.

The Savvy and Sassy Family is Growing!

We have some exciting and long awaited news to share. The Savvy and Sassy family is growing by two feet. We feel so blessed and our hearts are full. We are also very excited and happily on team pink for the second time. Baby #2 is being endearingly referred to as "P2" (Princess #2), at least until we have decided on a name. 

Mia could not be any more excited to be a big sister. We waited until I was about 14 weeks pregnant to tell her even though I think she knew something was going on. We held a small tea party for her in our front yard and gave her gifts of this big sister book (Amazon) and an adorable big sister dress I found on Etsy. She cannot wait for her little "sissy" to arrive in January. 

Having another baby has been something we have been wanting for quite some time and unfortunately came with challenges. Between pregnancy loss and infertility struggles we have been there and our hearts and prayers go out to all of those who are there now.

We are excited and look forward to sharing our journey to finally becoming a family of four.

Home Staging - Tips For Selling Your Home For Top Dollar Quickly

Here are some of the ideas we used to sell our South Florida home for top dollar in a short period of time. Best of luck on your real estate adventure!

Selling a home can be overwhelming. The ultimate goal of most sellers is to get the most possible for their property. To do so your home needs to looks it's absolute best at all times. You never get a second chance to make a great first impression.You can hire a professional home stager or follow this simple guide to do it yourself and save money along the process. 

Curb Appeal
The first thing a potential buyer will see is the front of your home. You want it to be clean and welcoming. Make sure your lawn and shrubs are healthy and manicured. Walkways should be clean and swept. Flowers are a simple and inexpensive way to make your house inviting. A simple potted plant in a bright and cheery color will go a long ways. If time permits you can grow your own from seed. Petunias and pansies are great spring and summer choices, marigolds and chrysanthemums are perfect for fall. Topiaries in a pot are also a fantastic choice and the best part is that they can go with you to your new home.

Clean, clean and then clean some more
Your home cannot be too clean when you are selling it. The cleaner, the better. Bathrooms and kitchens sell homes and unfortunately they are usually the dirtiest and messiest places in a home. Deep cleaning followed by regular maintenance will allow potential buyers to see the beauty of your home (not last night's dishes). I am a huge fan of those fantastic magic sponges. They work amazingly on walls, cabinets and tubs. Your home shouldn't smell of anything other than clean. Scented candles and plugins are unnecessary if your home is kept clean and fresh.

Your home should be clutter free with simple decor. Neutral colors are the best option. Potential buyers are more likely to envision themselves in the home. Rugs are a great way to anchor a room, they can also be quite inexpensive. By adding a few (groups of three are best) apothecary jars and simple fillers the decor of this dining room is complete. 

Think Spa!
When it comes to bedrooms and bathrooms think about a spa or even a fancy hotel. All surfaces should be clear and clean with the exception of a few simple decor items. A stylish white duvet can make any bedroom look great. White fluffy towels in bathrooms are also very appealing. Make sure all beauty products/toothbrushes are stored out of sight. Waste baskets should be emptied. Potential buyers do not want to see those things. (Make sure potty lids are always down!!!! I cannot stress this enough.)

Turn on all lights and open all window coverings prior to a showing or open house. Light and bright spaces look larger and more appealing. Using these tips should help you get the most money for your home. A little spent in the right areas will bring back a lot more in return getting you top dollar on your home.

We Are Now The Parents of a Kindergartner

Holy cow Batman, we are the parents of a Kindergartner!! Today was the first day of school for us in North Georgia. Once again we continued the tradition of taking first day of school pictures with our canvas chalkboard. Having the same chalkboard/photo prop in each of the pictures really shows how much our little has grown.

This was also the first year she cried when we left and man it was heartbreaking! 

Ok mamas, are you ready for school to start?
