About Me

Little Z (3), The Husband, Little Brother (6), Me, Big Brother (9)

I’m mom to three little boys ages 3, 6, and 9. My days are spent trying to prevent my toddler from burning down the house, locking himself in the freezer, and preventing other equally strange and disastrous events. When I’m not busy preventing catastrophe, I homeschool my two older boys. My husband, another big part of my life, is a psychologist with the US Air Force. I have a Bachelor of Science in Marriage, Family, and Human Development. On those rare occasions I get a bit of time to myself, I love to travel, cook, and eat ethnic foods! At Oh So Savvy Mom, a blog that caters to the interests of women and mothers, you’ll find reviews of great products for the family, parenting tips, recipes, and some great giveaways, too!


Meet the Team!
Hi!  I’m Kate and I am the mother of three beautiful children.  My little ballerina is 6, my little buddy is 4 and my little girly-girl is now almost 2!  My husband is the most amazing, hard working guy and I am so lucky to call him and my children my family.  I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice but I spend my days being a stay at home mom.  Surprisingly though, I am hardly ever home!  These 3 kids keep be busy between dance, soccer, school and running various errands all day but I simply love doing it.  I love to travel, spend time with my family, squeeze in a date night with my hubby or have a girl’s night out with my high school friends.  With any leftover spare time I love crafting, finding amazing deals, exercising and cooking.  It might get crazy at times but I love it and I wouldn’t have it any other way!



  1. I have a question about the rafflecopter for the Breeze Through Summer in Style! “PonyUp! Kentucky” Handbags ~Review & Giveaway~
    On the daily points there is one for other giveaways entered. I have entered only one other of your giveaways. Can I leave that as the same comment every day or is it a different one every day?

    • Great question! It needs to be a different giveaway each day. I’ll see if I can clarify that on my entry form. Thanks for coming and entering!

  3. Hi Amy,
    We follow you on Twitter. My name is Loren Paulsen and I am the CEO of Kendall Research Systems, Inc.
    We are marketing a product, which is a breakthrough in foot pain relief, for runners, walkers, and people on their feet a lot.
    It’s a pure medical grade silicone orthotic, that unlike conventional orthotics will not change the fit of your shoe.
    I have twin daughters, both of whom work in bio-tech and are on their feet for long hours each day.
    They have found that wearing GelThotics really makes a difference, not just for their feet, but knees and lower back as well.
    Our product is one of the few orthotics that works well in high heels as well. You can watch an interview with the inventor, Michael Kendall on the website.
    You would be perfect to do a trial and review of our product. We are interested in having you test our product and review on your blog and your twitter page.
    Please visit our site for more information on the product: http://www.kendallgelthotics.com
    If you would like to do a giveaway, we would like the winner to be someone who would genuinely benefit from wearing them.
    Our suggestion is that you invite contestants to visit our website or tweet about us, and write a brief description of their foot pain (no longer than 50 words).
    Send us the winner’s name address and shoe size, we will fill the order.
    As special thanks, your twitter and blog followers get a 25% discount, by using promo code “twitter”.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you,
    Loren Paulsen
    Office – 858-391-0268

  7. Great site!! I’ve enjoyed reading about you and your passion! Congrats on being an AF family. We are Army. It’s tough, but as long as you and your hubs communicate and laugh you’ll be just fine. We’ve been together 12 years in Oct and have been military for 7 years. It’s been good to us.
    God Bless!

    • Thanks so much Candy! The part that we’re really nervous about is, of course, deployment. We’ll see how that treats us. That may be the deciding factor for my husband about whether he thinks he can make it in the military. It is good to hear other people have good experiences. It is very encouraging.

  8. Hello! You have a great site! I’m wondering if you would be interested in getting toys from Discovery Toys? Our toys offer layers of learning, kid-powered play, and open-ended fun! Our products are phalate and BPA free and have an unconditional lifetime guarantee! Starting in about a week, there will be an option to earn free toys by sending customers to my website. You would get a percentage of whatever they buy and could choose the free toys you want. If you’re interested, please let me know! More information is available on my website at http://www.discoverytoystore.com (info about the online option of earning free toys will not be available on the site until that program officially launches in about a week). Feel free to email me with any questions!

    All my proceeds this month will be donated to help kids with Autism in disadvantaged families!


  9. Hi,

    I linked up a give-a-way but made a boo, boo, firstly I rushed and realised I didn’t assign it to the right dates as it finishes on the 8th of June and I listed it in the next 6 days one :(.. Secondly where it said list your name, I literally put my name “Lee” and it has therefore registered under my name giving no indication of the give-a-way which is a BYO reusable coffee cup.

    How do I remove it and start all over again?

    sorry can you advise, my email: leecarolineart@gmail.com

  23. You should take your blog post down about earthy crunchy mama diapers. They either were sold to a new person or they turned into a scam. They are collecting people’s money and not sending diapers or services. Multiple people have been complaining to the better business bureau. They don’t answer their phone or emails. People are seeing your post and thinking its a good company.

    • Oh, no, that is terrible! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll look into it. I know that Jennifer, the girl who used to own it, sold it about a year ago. I made several purchases from her and was always extremely happy with the service. She ran her business wonderfully.
      I really appreciate you letting me know. I’ll look into this ASAP.
