Spring Into Fashion with Jordan Taylor Beachwear...

(The Jackson five family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
My friend Lea from the Rolands Blog and I have teamed up for another Spring Into Fashion feature today from Jordan Taylor Beachwear...
We have a waterpark weekend planned in the next few weeks and I have to have a great swimsuit cover-up with me. It's an essential item when I'm packing my bags. I always throw one on when we're walking through the halls from our room to the waterpark and they are also great to wear while we grab lunch or a snack to keep the chill off.  Having a cute cover-up is really a must have item for me as I hit the pool or beach with my fam.
My fave cover-up's are from Jordan Taylor. They are lightweight, stylish and sooooo comfortable!

Today I'm featuring the black  Phantom 3/4 Sleeve Boat Neck Tunic from the Elif for Jordan Taylor Spring 2015 collection.
I love, love, love everything about this one! From the pretty detailed fabric to the style and length it's the perfect addition to my black and white chevron suit. You can see my suit peeking through it, but it still offers enough coverage to make me feel put together and classy when walking to and from the pool area and running around with my kids.

Make Pizza Night quick, easy and delicious with Rustic Crust...

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
We love a good pizza and making our own is always so much fun. The boys love being involved and I love that it's a quick, easy meal that our whole family can enjoy. So when Rustic Crust asked us to host a pizza night using their organic and all-natural pizza crust's and sauces we happily said, YES!
When I say easy, I mean super easy. Rustic Crust offers ready-made crust and sauce packets so that meal time is a breeze. Simply add your own toppings and cheese if you'd like and you'll have a delicious meal ready in no time.
We love that all Rustic Crust ready-made crusts are made right here in the USA and are made using traditional, Old World baking methods --they form each crust by hand, then allow the dough to rise slowly, double proofing it for maximum flavor using their very own bread culture which gives it that Old World authenticity. They use delicious, all natural ingredients like select herbs and spices, no GMOs and no artificial flavors. Their unbleached whole grain flours make it a healthy option for the whole family. I love that there are no trans fats and no added sugars in their recipes either!
Jace really enjoyed making the pizza's and we all loved trying them! My fave was the Old World Flatbread Crispy Italian Thin Crust --yum!
Rust Crust offers many crust options and their sauce is so good! If you're looking for a quick, easy way to create a delicious meal that the whole family will love, then I hope you'll try their products!

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature and giveaway. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
The boys' couldn't be any more excited for warmer temperatures. They are more than ready to trade in their boots and winter coats for summer attire! I'm right there with them!
So let's talk about some fun summer kids footwear styles from Umi Children's Shoes. We love Umi --we love that they offer quality footwear, the cutest styles and are comfy and fit great which is a must!
Grady is so excited about his new Cameron slip on shoes from Umi.
Perfect for the warmer months the Cameron is a light weight canvas shoe that is great for little boys. We love the bright blue shoe with contrasting lime green laces that you don't have to tie. They are so easy for little ones to put on and take off by themselves. They also have a thick sole which is great for little boys who like to explore and you'll love that they feature water friendly materials that dry quickly. They are a great shoe moving into spring and summer!
I browsed the Umi site and found some other items that I just love so here are my spring picks for girls and boys...
1. Rozelle --Ahhh I love these gladiator sandels for girls. So fun!
2. Cruz B --So classic for summer, with a tiny bit of added neon. LOVE!
3. Vianne --How adorable are these girls flats that have little cut-outs in them! Super cute for spring!
4. Jett B --Another pair of great slip-on's for boys.  Cute, stylish and no tying makes everyone's life easier!

We love The Children's Place and all of the great styles they have for spring.

Family Night at the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus LEGENDS show...

I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

We had so much fun at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Legends Circus last night in Cincinnati. The boys' had an absolute blast.

If you're looking for a jam packed show that's exciting and entertaining the entire time then the LEGENDS Circus is a must see show. We just found out the elephants will all be retiring soon and it was so good to be able to see them one last time. They are such sweet animals and we are so glad they'll be able to relax and be taken care of. They are so neat to see performing, such smart beings.

They're not the only animals taking the stage and entertaining the crowds though. We loved the performances from the dogs, pigs, goats, the unicorn and another favorite of ours, the tigers!

We also loved watching the breathtaking trapeze acts, motorcycle daredevils, and the thrilling fast paced horseback riders. LEGENDS has something to offer for families of all ages.

It was such a fun night with my family!
