I am a Lennar Tampa Homes Mommy Certified Blogger. All opinions and my love for Tampa are 100% my own!

Why I Love Living In Tampa

Why I Love Living In Tampa #MommyCertified

Why do I love living in the Tampa area? Well, there are a lot of reasons actually. When my husband first moved down from Michigan to Florida 15 years ago, he researched schools, developments, surroundings, etc. When I moved down one year later, I looked for friends I could connect with, restaurants, and fun places to shop :)

Fifteen years later, all those things are still important to us and that’s why I love living in the Tampa area!

Why I Love Living In Tampa

One of my favorite places to go with my family and my friends is Wiregrass in New Tampa! They have the Fresh Market on scheduled Saturdays throughout the year. It is a great place to get fresh fruit, vegetables, baked goods, unique gifts, and so much more. In fact, make sure to check out the booth with the Crawfish Pies….they are AMAZING!

You will also find fun activities at Wiregrass all year long – the holiday celebrations are always our favorite. Who can resist snow in Florida?

I also love that Tampa is so close to all the action that Central Florida has to offer.

Why I Love Living In Tampa

We have Busch Gardens right in our backyard.

Why I Love Living In Tampa

Mickey Mouse is just 1.5 hours away.

Why I Love Living In Tampa

Universal Studios and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is right down 1-4.

Why I Love Living In Tampa

And don’t forget SeaWorld and Discovery Cove!

I swear sometimes I feel like we get to live in a resort area…and the kids definitely think that :)
Now, I mentioned that the first thing my husband looked at were the communities in North Tampa, and there are some amazing ones to be a part of and grow with your family in.

In fact, Lennar Tampa just had the Grand Opening of K-Bar Ranch. As a Mommy Certified Lennar Blogger, I got some amazing insider pictures to share with you guys…you will see why I love Lennar Homes :)

Why I Love Living In Tampa

Look at all that living space! That is the K-Bar Ranch Harwich Model, doesn’t that make you want to jump right in and have fun with your family?

Why I Love Living In Tampa

I love to spend time in the kitchen, and this beautiful Kitchen in the K-Bar Ranch Eastham Model just inspires me to cook! I can see my kiddos sitting happily on that breakfast bar waiting for their meals :)

Why I Love Living In Tampa

As you all know, I watch my spending.  My husband and I work very hard for our money – like all of you do – so another thing I love about Lennar Homes is that there are so many things included.  In fact EVERYTHING’S INCLUDED.  All those upgrades that other homebuilders charge you an arm and a leg for COME WITH your Lennar Home.  That’s something I can feel really good about.

Why I Love Living In Tampa

Here are the items that you will see in your Everything’s Included Lennar Home:

  • 20 inch tiles in all flooring
  • Navaho white walls
  • LED lighting (higher energy efficiency and longer life)
  • USB plugs in kitchen, owner’s entry and master bedroom
  • Owner’s Entry in single-family homes (essentially a “drop zone”)
  • Spindled staircase
  • Back lanai overhead
  • Childproof plugs
  • All of the EcoSmart features
  • GE stainless steel appliances
  • Nexia home automation
  • And more!

Have questions about your new community?  Well, each Lennar community has a neighborhood Knowologist available in the Welcome Home Center of their community.

The Knowologist knows EVERYTHING about the community. They can provide information about home maintenance, trash pickup days, registering your kids for school, setting up your utilities, etc. They can also tell you where to get the best pizza in town, where the movie theatre is, closest grocery stores, the best routes to avoid traffic, etc.

The Knowologist can even take you in their car for a tour of the area or show you where something specific is.

I know I shared some pictures above of K-Bar Ranch in New Tampa and I thought you guys would like to know of some of the special savings too. During the grand opening Lennar is offering half price homesite premiums at K-Bar Ranch, saving you up to $15,000!

In addition K-Bar Ranch has a lot of amazing features including:

  • Swimming pool
  • Children’s playgrounds
  • Basketball court
  • Gated Entry
  • Zoned for all ‘A’ rated schools
  • Elementary school at the entrance of community
  • Close to the Shops at Wiregrass
  • Included brick paver driveways and front patios
  • All homes have a pond or conservation view

Sounds pretty amazing, huh?

Meadow Pointe in New Tampa also has FREE HOA for a YEAR!  More savings!  If you aren’t in the market for a single-family home, I wanted to point out that Lennar Tampa also has beautiful townhomes with quite a few floorplans to choose from.

All Lennar townhomes are block on block, meaning greater fire safety compared to block on wood, plus much less noise from neighbors and greater privacy for you.


Why I Love Living In Tampa

I hope to see you around the New Tampa area!  Make sure to say HI if you see me out and about :)

OneStepAhead Insect Shield Clothing

OneStepAhead Insect Shield Clothing – Stop Those Annoying Bug Bites!

I H-A-T-E bugs. Hate may be a strong term, but I truly mean it. When I get bit by a mosquito I actually swell up, and if a red ant happens to find it’s way to me I have a horrible reaction. I have actually had to go to the doctors office because my hand was turning blue from lack of blood flow because of a red any bite. I HATE bugs.

Unfortunately my children have the same reaction to bug bites. I feel so bad for them, especially since they are younger it is very hard for them NOT itch them. And we all know, the more you itch them the worse they get. Well, we just got back from our annual camping trip in Michigan and the first night the kids both got eaten up. To the point where my son couldn’t even sleep…he was itching SO bad! And Sadie was up every hour :( I felt horrible!!

OneStepAhead Insect Shield Clothing

The second night I made sure I got out Sadie’s Bug Smarties outfit that we got for review from OneStepAhead. Trust me, I am kicking myself that I didn’t get them out on the first night. I know I have told you guys about the fun swimwear from OneStepAhead and I am thrilled that we got the chance to review their NEW Bug Smarties Insect Shield Repellent Apparel.

OneStepAhead Insect Shield Clothing

Basically you get to have your insect protection and fashion, too! The clothes are soft, stylish, and keeps bugs away. Thanks to Insect Shield ® bug repellent technology, it protects against mosquitoes, ticks, and more. You can’t tell it’s there, but the bugs can! The repellent is bonded to the fabric fibers and lasts through 70 washes, the expected lifetime of a garment.

OneStepAhead Insect Shield Clothing

See the entire collection of Insect Shield ® Clothing & Gear Designed by OneStepAhead

Sadie requested her new outfit just about nightly…it worked great! Plus it is “super comfy.” The pants are leggings – which are her favorite things to wear anyway, and I love the style of the tunic shirt. You may think that a bug repellent headband may seem a bit strange – but it was actually one of my favorite pieces. Sadie always seems to get bit by her ears and on her forehead – with the OneStepAhead Bug Smarties headband she DIDN’T!

I loved not having to spray her constantly with bug repellent while we were enjoying our camping trip, and she loved telling everyone that her new outfit “stopped bugs from biting her.”

OneStepAhead Insect Shield Clothing

I am looking forward to getting lots of use out of our new OneStepAhead Bug Smarties outfit…not only on our camping trips, but in Florida we have a MILLION mosquitoes so now we are ready to take them on!  My only compliant is that they don’t have sizes for Steven…the largest size is a 7-8.

OneStepAhead carries products that are designed to make life easier, safer and more fun—for parents and kids!  I am definitely a huge fan :)

Make sure to stay up to date with OneStepAhead by being a fan on Facebook and Pinterest!
