Today is #nationalbrisketday so obviously I have to share my go-to slow cooker BBQ brisket recipe. It’s probably one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make. It tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen cooking it, though it takes just minutes to prep. Best part is, you can make this recipe with any cut of beef! Serve on a plate with your favorite sides or on a roll for a delicious sandwich. Your family will love it!⁣

Head to the blog (link in bio or swipe up in stories) for the easy to follow recipe. ⁣

I’ve gotten so much positive feedback on the copycat Starbucks Pink Drink recipe I put up on the blog last month and I just wanted to thank you guys so much! Since most of us aren’t going out, it’s fun to try to make our favorites at home. What copycat recipe do you want me to share next?

Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣
⁣
Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

A Letter to My Oldest Daughter

It was an afternoon in February, 13 years ago and I had just taken a pregnancy test.  Your Dad and I knew we were ready to be parents, but we didn’t realize just how fast our dreams would become a reality.  As he walked through the door that evening, from work, I remember looking up and saying, “You’re going to be a Daddy.”  He stopped, smiled and literally jumped up and down.  I’m not sure I’d ever seen him that happy.  I’m not sure I had ever been that happy myself.

I was never really nervous about becoming a Mom.  I knew that I loved you as soon as I heard your first heartbeat, maybe even before that.  I knew that you were going to be smart, beautiful and the perfect combination of your Dad and I. I knew I was going to do everything in my power to give you the best life.  I was going to teach you to be kind, loving and brave. What I didn’t know was that you would be the one to change my life.

Your Arrival

When you finally arrived, I thought my heart would explode.  You were more perfect than I could have imagined.  You had this amazing thick black hair and big bright eyes.  You held my finger and looked at me and I thought I would melt.  I wanted to protect you. I wanted to hold you and sing to you and make you laugh. I wanted to show you off to the world.  You were the most beautiful baby I had ever seen.

As you got older, you started developing your own personality.  You could make us laugh so easily, without even trying.  You were always sweet and kind, helping when you were able to.  When you became a big sister, you handled it so well.  I would catch a glimpse of you staring at your baby sister every once and a while.  You suddenly went from our baby to a little girl that loved to play “Mom” to her baby sister. You would try to change her diaper or feed her.  You were her protector almost instantly.  You wanted to hold her and sing to her and make her laugh.  You wanted to show her off to the world.  It was the most special relationship I had ever seen.

When we decided to move from the city you grew up in, you transitioned so flawlessly.  You made new friends right away and found a love of dance.   The day you graduated from pre-school I realized that my baby was growing up.   The older you got, the more involved you became.  You decided to join the Girl Scouts and experienced so many new and exciting adventures.  Not long after you turned 7, your youngest sister was born.  Each time I turned around, you were reading to her, teaching her or keeping her occupied.  You shared your toys, fed her and helped her with her baths.  You took on more than anyone expected you to, because you wanted to, not because you were asked to.

And suddenly, in the blink of an eye, you were starting middle school. It was almost as though overnight, you were almost the same height as me, wearing my shoes and asking to borrow my lip gloss. You started waking up early to do your hair, wanted to pick out your own clothing and make your own breakfast.   You started experiencing new things and although you were almost always happy, there were a couple of times that I saw you break down.  I wanted to protect you. I wanted to hold you and sing to you and make you laugh. You were the most beautiful girl I had ever seen and I wanted you to see what I saw in you.

Now, A Young Lady

Now here you are, a young lady, almost a teenager.  You catch me staring at you sometimes.  I’m just in awe of how stunning you are.  Not just your appearance, but your heart.  You tell me everything and ask me all of your questions, no matter how awkward my answers may be.  You don’t let people treat you badly. You stand up for yourself and for others.  You work hard to achieve goals you’ve set for yourself and you never give up. I love watching you reach for the highest star and effortlessly surpassing it.

I am incredibly proud of you.  More than I could ever say.  I will always be here for you, no matter what.  I am here to listen. I’m here to protect you. I’m here to hold you and sing to you and make you laugh.  You are the most extraordinary girl and you are so loved.  Thank you for choosing me as your Mama.  It’s a gift I’ll always cherish.  I love you.

    Beautiful letter and seriously I was practically crying by the end of it. My older daughter will be starting kindergarten next year and have a feeling I will be a bit emotional about her starting, so yes can relate and will be there too next year with this one.

    This is a beautiful letter to your daughter. I remember when I wrote one for my daughter about the same time. I’m sure she knows you love her, even when you look a little longer at her. I remember those feelings of happiness when my ex and I knew we were having a child. And I still look at my daughter now, knowing how blessed we truly are.

    What a beautiful letter and a kind caring and very pretty daughter you have. I wish I had the opportunity to have told my daughter about being her mom but the Lord called her home when she was 16. But I will not make that mistake again and I tell my son everyday how proud of him. But I need to write a letter so he always has it to look back on.

    You have written such an amazing letter to your daughter! I have all daughters as well, and I love your idea of sharing with your child how much you love them!

    That is so beautiful. I had to dab my eyes once or twice. My daughter is getting older every second, and I see her turning from my little girl into my young lady. It’s an odd feeling of pride, sadness, and wishing I could pause life just for a little while.

    So sweet! I love these types of posts and I’m sure our kids will appreciate them when they are older too. I would love to do something like this for my kids. How meaningful and thoughtful.

    It’s amazing how fast this time goes when they are little. I feel like I was just amazed by my oldest daughter starting kindergarten. Then her little sister came along and time went on super speed. Your daughter sounds lovely.

    Omg this is so sweet! I’m the oldest daughter and I teared up just knowing that some of this is what my mom feels.

    Wow. That really touched me. I have two boys, so I read it through the eyes of my mom speaking to me. Beautiful. You’re a terrific writer.

    What a smashing letter! I love how honest it is. Your daughter will appreciate these types of letters one day, if she doesn’t already now. She is lovely!

    How beautiful! (both the letter and your daughter!) I think things like this help our children understand how wanted they were!

    I’m not going to lie, I teared up a bit. This is such an amazing gift for your daughter because she’ll be able to look back on this and read it over and over and know how loved she is!
