Sun Tail Mermaid Tails. The Perfect Gift this Christmas!

logo (1)

When I grow up I want to be a mermaid! That is the response I get when I ask my daughter and her friends what they want to be when they get older.  I mean I can’t  really blame them..I am in my late twenties and I still want to be a mermaid when I grow up!

Well, now you can help make your little fish lovers dream come true by purchasing them a “real” Mermaid Tail!!!  Sun Tail offers high quality monofin sets for swimming that are unlike any other. They even have SHARK FINS for the cool dudes!

My little Siren chose the Seven Seas mermaid tail because she obsessed with anything rainbow!

The texture and look of this tail is amazing. She can not wait until Summer time so that she can really test it out. For now she’s happy just being a pretty little beached Mermaid. She even likes walking around the house in the tail. When you have the monofin off the tail is open at the bottom. I also like this opened feature for safety reasons. If there was a need to remove the monofin in a hurry we are able to do so quickly.

Teen and adult sized monofins are available as well! There are so many styles and colors to choose from. Go look while there still is time for arrival before Christmas!

Smoker Box by Cave Tools


The smoker box is super easy to use. Put your choice of wood chips inside, close it and then stick it inside your grill.

I was able to find a delicious mesquite BBQ flavor of smoking chips easily on Amazon.  They are perfect for grilling up some ribs, chicken, or just about any kind of meat. You get the same flavor smoking something all day would taste like in just a matter of minutes.
The smoker box is little and I’m almost positive that it could be used with any Grill. It is easy to maneuver/use, which makes it easy to take it anywhere with you.

The box is a beautiful, clean, stainless steel. Cleaning it is a breeze as well.


If you are thinking of purchasing this smoker box by Cave Tools I highly recommend you do.

Shuckle’s Corn Maze at Fiddle Dee Farms, a 30 minute drive from Nashville and a short drive from just about anywhere in middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky!

Fiddle Dee Farms is my favorite Fall time tradition. The whole family has a blast each time we visit.

There is so much to do at Fiddle Dee Farms, so make sure you plan to stay the whole day.

The corn maze is our favorite! This was our first year we actually made it all the way through 😀

After our journey through the maze it was time to play. The games are unbelievably creative and all man made. Pure fun! To name a few, there was Human Foosball, water pumps and rubber ducky racing,  pumpkin bowling, pumpkin skeeball and so much more!

The kiddos favorite is always the Play Fort and Super Slide!



The petting farm is a load of fun. With your Shuckles bucks you can get food to feed the animals. They have goats, sheep, pigs, and chickens.

The day we went was rainy, so we did not get to do the Hay Ride unfortunately.  But, we did get to go inside and get faces painted and eat some delicious fried food under the pavilion.

Fried Pickles and Fried PB&J 😛


Lastly, we went pumpkin shopping. Shuckles has a great selection of pumpkins! Even a few uniquely odd ones. My favorite 🙂

BBQ Spatula with Bottle Opener *Cave Tools Review*

Cave tools was kind enough to send me a Stainless Steel BBQ Spatula in return for my honest review.


My husband is the barbecuer. I do not even know how to grill if I am being completely honest with you but I knew that this spatula from Cave Tools was going to be something special. My feeling was confirmed when I asked my husband if he would be interested in it and he said yes before I even got the question out. It’s crazy how grilling tools can be so exciting for a man. I was pregnant this whole summer so my husband got to do a whole lot of grilling because this mama was pretty exhausted daily.

When I had our precious baby girl the hubby took on even more dinners and got a whole lot of use out of his new stainless steel BBQ spatula. On beautiful summer days I got to relax by the pool with our babies while the hubs got his grill on.


His favorite thing was the bottle opener on the spatula itself. I don’t really think you can make a spatula more manlier then adding a bottle opener to it. Hahaha. My husband always cracks open a cold one when he goes outside to fire up the grill.


He also love sturdiness of the spatula. He said it holds very good in the hand and he loved the effortless Burger flips he got to do.

It even has a serrated blade to make any cuts in meat. He stated that he knows that this spatula is going to last him a very long time and he is very happy about that and I am very happy because it is dishwasher safe and easy to clean.

You can purchase your own Stainless Steel BBQ Spatula on the Cave Tools website HERE!! Or on Amazon here!

Plus you get a great deal! 15% Off if you use code SPATULA15 at checkout 🙂


Squishy Mat: The Dream Changing Mat *Review*

Disclosure: From Downriver To Downright Country receives products in order to conduct a review, no monetary compensation was provided unless noted otherwise. All opinions are 100% my own. In case of a giveaway the sponsor is responsible for the delivery of prize(s), unless noted otherwise.


What are Squishy Mats?

Squishy Mats are portable, easy to clean, and contain almost one inch of Memory Foam —  creating a soft spot for all your precious cargo. The surface of each mat is covered by a super soft, micro-flannel fabric and is backed with a nonslip rubber grid. Built in handle for ease of storage and travel.

BUT in my own personal opinion, a Squishy Mat is a baby’s best friend and a mamas ideal changing mat. I have now three babies and two out of the three absolutely dreaded the public restroom diaper change station. I can’t really blame them because I think I would freak out and cry hysterically if I was laid on a floating hard piece of plastic. But alas comes the squishy mat. It is portable and fits in the diaper bag without any effort or fuss. It is easy to unfold and just as easy to fold back up again and Velcro shut. Memory foam for babies is completely a dream. I mean, after spending nine months in a squishy comfy womb and then coming out into the real world, that’s hard enough. They don’t need to be laid on a hard floor or changing table for that matter and make an uncomfortable time like diaper changing even more uncomfortable. My sweet baby girl does not cry for any diaper changes anymore.


I actually get smiles when I lay her down on the squishy mat. When I first received the mat (as you can see in the pictures below) my sweet girl actually napped on the mat I laid her down and she fell right asleep instantly.

Alright, F.D.T.D.C. readers, ready for ANOTHER awesome review AND GIVEAWAY??

Of course I am already a subscriber to Kidorable emails, and so when I see a new email from them a wave of excitement always rushes over me. I can’t help it! I LOVE new Kidorable news!

I am usually expecting to see new products or a new character/design that is available. But this time I learned that Kidorable now has a BLOG with very interesting posts and even Parenting Forums you can sign up to participate in.

I wasn’t sure what to expect before I checked it out, but let me tell you, the second I started reading the blog, I was hooked! I really do enjoy reading blogs about parenting. They not only lend some great advice, but they are COMPLETELY relatable! From posts on how to deal with your children’s fears, to dealing with bullies. There is some great information for us parents to read up on no matter what age our babies are.

My personal favorite post is this one titled ” What Kind of Beautiful Day Is It? ” Mainly because it promotes positivity. I am a very optimistic person and my parenting reflects that as well. My husband and I tell our kids to wake up every day and tell themselves that “Today is going to be a great day.” Starting the day with a positive mind set is key.

No matter how positive we are though, kids are kids, and they will always have a fear we have to help them conquer together. A HUGE THANK YOU to Kidorable for making my sons fear of thunderstorms a fun fear to conquer.

A fear…Fun??? Huh??? Why yes! Anything is fun with the cutest pair of rain boots on 😉

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kidorable has enough styles to please any child! My daughter is a crazy cat lady, so her choice was simple. She went with the Lucky Cat rain boot. My son loves anything rough and tough, so he chose the Shark rain boots which are Kidorables newest character addition.

My daughter had the same fear of storms that my son is going through. But it seemed like after I told my daughter about all the good rain does for us she seemed to be less frightened. My son on the other hand is not so convinced by my nature stories. SO, my next plan was to show him the fun that can be made during a rain storm.

Life Isn’t About Waiting For The Storm To Pass.. 

It’s Learning To Dance In The Rain.


So we played. Boy did we play! We played in the rain, and even when it was done. By the time we went inside we were soaked, but the puddles were almost all dried up.

Both of my kids had a BLAST and the BEST part was, once we got inside the first thing my son said to us was “I can’t wait until it storms again!!”  and since this day he has not woken up crying when hearing the rain or thunder in the middle of the night. He does ask every time to go jump in the puddles though 🙂

Kidorable products are not only extremely kid friendly and totally adorable, they are also parent friendly and easy to wash and keep clean. The kiddos had more rain in their boots than the sidewalk had on it. I was a little worried that their boots may get stinky from being so soaked inside. I was surprised to find how simple they were for me to hand wash. The inserts came out easily and I washed them and the boots with mild detergent and warm water and dried them in front of the fan. When they were all dried they looked and still smelt brand new!

I think you can tell how much we ADORE Kidorable products and we HIGHLY recommend them.

Kidorable would LOVE to have you as fan too, and so they are offering a lucky subscriber the chance to WIN an UMBRELLA of your choice.  There are so many great choices! Which would your little one choose? Let me know in the comments below!!
