For those who have been following MarshMueller around for a while, you’ll know that I love to partner with businesses like Freshly Picked to run exciting giveaways and whatnot.
You’ll also know that I don’t typically write product reviews or have affiliate links, because that’s just not how I roll.*
*I don’t think paid product reviews or affiliate links are a bad thing. I always appreciate when bloggers or influencers disclose this in their posts.
BUT– I was given the opportunity to receive a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins for my kiddo in exchange for a product review, which I was more than happy to do. If it was a product or service I didn’t 100% believe in, I wouldn’t do it.
I had received and reviewed a pair a few years ago, right when BAM was born, and I was a little nervous this time around because BAM? Well…he’s 2.5.
Those who have a two-year-old, or have the badges of honor from surviving parenting kids ages two and three know full well that kiddos of that age are VERY particular.
And BAM is no different.
This kid threw a tantrum because all his shirts with fish or sharks on them were dirty and his options were Iron Man or Ninja Turtles.
This kid prefers to get ready for bed with his assortment of stuffed animals, and if one is missing, it’s gonna be a long night.
So I received the pair of Freshly Picked moccasins in the mail and I didn’t put them on him right away, as I feared he wouldn’t like them and throw an epic tantrum.
Thankfully, I was wrong.
He was fine.
In fact, he LOVED them!
I was planning on doing a super cute photo shoot at Providence Park when we went to our next Portland Timbers match, but…
The soccer schedule this season is rife with Wednesday and Sunday evening matches. Tough when you have a two-hour drive into Portland each way.
So we opted for the beach instead.
I was a little worried that they’d be hard for him to walk in the sand, but he actually liked walking in the sand better with his Timbers-colored shoes.
I guess that means that I’ll have to actually pick up a few more pairs for him (have you seen the Care Bears collection they have?? ALL the heart eye emojis!). Thanks, Freshly Picked for having us try your amazing USA-made moccasins again. I’m glad my guy found footwear he actually likes!
