You guys... it's so good. Like ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ, ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ. My kids love it so much, they named it "Mom-a-rita". Pretty clever, right? โฃ

If you're looking for a family friendly, non-alcoholic recipe for a margarita that the whole family can enjoy, head to the blog (or go to stories and swipe up)! It's the yummiest non-alcoholic margarita ever... at least according to my kids. โฃ

I'm a Florida girl... born and raised. So when the temperature drops, I'm honestly a little bit clueless. #sponsored Oh, and when we travel to places that have cooler weather... I never know what to pack to make sure we stay warm. I do have one must-have though... our @myroovia personal space heater. It's so small and compact, it can go wherever we go. Plus, when we get to our destination, #Roovia plugs right into the wall so we don't have to worry about cords or cables! I love that you can set the temperature, the fan speed and the timer for up to 12 hours. And for our cooler Florida weather (sometimes we drop to the 30's if we're lucky), Roovia is perfect for the bedroom or to take into the office! Where do you need a personal space heater? #WinterWithRooviaโฃ

Valentine idea #6: For when...

Life is a lot like an amusement park ride. We all start off waiting in a line, listening to or reading instructions on what is about to happen. They warn you about safety and how to get the most enjoyment out of your experience. Some listen carefully and others are distracted by other, less important things.โฃ
โฃ
And then the ride begins. We all start off slow, cautious, anticipating what the ride will be like for us. Will it be fun? Will it be scary? Exciting? A little bit of everything? We question our abilities and whether or not we paid enough attention. This is it, there is no turning back now. โฃโฃ
โฃ
Once it starts to increase in speed, we either close our eyes tightly or we give ourselves a pep talk. Maybe we realize that itโ€™s not as bad as we thought. So we throw our hands up and enjoy the moment. We take a snapshot in our mind and wish for this feeling more often. The feeling of accomplishment, of exhilaration, of freedom. โฃโฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s that 10 second rush that changes something in us. It might make us want to wait on that line again. It might make us want to try an even faster ride. It makes the rest of the moments at that theme park seem just a little bit mundane. We want to spend the rest of our time looking for that feeling again. And again.โฃโฃ
โฃ
But then, the ride slows down and eventually comes to a complete stop. Everyone exits and has a decision to make. Do they go back on again or do they try a new ride? Do they go home, happy to have experienced that one moment or do they seek out more? What will you do?โฃ

Life is a lot like...

1 5  Y E A R S. The date was 02/05/05. Our wedding was small. I was never a fan of being the center of attention and didnโ€™t want a grand, expensive wedding, so we planned the perfect, small wedding for less than $100 (dress included). We invited our family and a couple of close friends. We were planning on getting married on the beach, but since my Grandma wasn't able to walk on the sand, we moved it to our bossโ€™s balcony, which overlooked the ocean. The view was breathtaking.โฃ โฃ
We actually found out that I was pregnant with our oldest daughter about a week before our wedding. I will never forget Nelsonโ€™s reaction. He literally jumped up and down.  I knew what a special person I was marrying, but I could have never imagined what type of Dad he would be, until Lucia was born.โฃ โฃ
I wound up having to have a c-section and had high blood pressure complications shortly after. I was back in the hospital when she was just a week old and Nelson completely took over, taking care of Lucia day and night and really embracing his new role as a Dad. Even the nurses at the hospital couldnโ€™t believe that he was doing it all on his own. Everyone told me that I had found a diamond in the rough.โฃ โฃ
Throughout the years, he has continued to amaze me on a daily basis. Nelson is not just my husband, he is my rock. I struggle with severe anxiety and he is my safe place. He knows exactly how to calm me down; and when I accomplish something (big or small), heโ€™s my biggest cheerleader. He is unlike anyone else Iโ€™ve ever known. He does pretty much everything around the house, takes the girls and I to and from every event and errand. He helps with homework, cooks the meals on most nights and even does the girlsโ€™ hair for them. I donโ€™t know what I did to deserve him, but Iโ€™m so incredibly grateful for him. I canโ€™t imagine my life any different, with anyone else by my side. โฃ
โฃ
Happy 15th Anniversary Babe! May you find the strength to put up with me for at least another 15 more. โฃ

Our girls are 7, 10 and 14. Their likes and dislikes couldn’t be more different! We have one who loves to play with cars, one who loves to watch videos and another who spends most of her time in her room, perfecting her makeup skills. They really couldn’t be more different. Finding something that all three girls can enjoy doing together is rare but the one thing they do have in common is their love of art. That’s why we were excited to learn about Allessimo Reality Puzzles.ย 

Allessimo Reality Puzzles

Allessimoโ„ข Reality Puzzles are more than just a toy. With each piece assembled the world begins to come alive. With 12 Unique Puzzlesย Allessimo has something to spark the imagination of any child – including boys and girls!

When the puzzles arrived, the girls instantly chose their favorite puzzle. They offer such a huge variety from animals to vehicles. There is an option for everyone, even for my very different girls!

Each reality puzzle paint kit comes with paint, a paint brush, a small piece of sandpaper, two sheets of wood with the puzzle pieces precut (all you do is pop out each piece) and instructions.

Build

While the puzzle pieces are all numbered and clearly labeled on the instruction sheet themselves, our two younger girls needed Mom and Dad’s help. This quickly turned into a family project and gave us some quality time away from our screens. They are the perfect bonding experience for parents and kids

These puzzles are not your ordinary arts and crafts project either. Allessimoโ„ข Reality Puzzles are known to:

  • Develop Creativity and Thinking Skills
  • Give Children an Early Taste of Success
  • Fill the Gap Left by the School System
  • Teach Patience and a Sense of Achievement

They โ€œsecretlyโ€ introduce tough subjects like math, mechanics and engineering into your childโ€™s play time. ย And, they develop their imagination and creativity while playing with a fun and rewarding toy.

Each puzzle targets the 3 critical building blocks of child development:

a) Critical Thinking
b) Patience
c) Creativity

Paint

When they were done building their puzzles, the girls got creative, painting their puzzles however they wanted to. The kit comes with all of the basic colors: white, green, blue, yellow, red and purple. The girls had the best time bringing their race car, unicorn and butterfly to life.

Show Off

From beginning to end, we were impressed with the Allessimoโ„ข Reality Puzzles. It was quiet, creative time in our home for just over an hour and when their puzzles were dry, they couldn’t wait to show our neighbors what they had created. Each puzzle is now proudly displayed on their shelves. They are looking forward to creating another puzzle this weekend!

Allessimo is ONLY sold online and canโ€™t be found in stores. If your kids love to use their imagination and love to paint, don’t wait. Theyย sell out quickly. Which puzzles will you choose?

Allessimo Reality Puzzles are fun for all ages! Using a STEM Learning approach, this screenfree activity brings out the artist in you.
