It’s the last official weekend of Summer and I’m hardcore celebrating. And by hardcore celebrating, I mean lighting my @raedunn fall scented candles, binge watching Netflix and going to bed before 10pm. 🙌🏻 Remember when our nights didn’t even start until 10pm? I would dance all night, get back home with just enough time to shower and change before heading out to work. AND I could work a full 8 hours without ever feeling the fact that I hadn’t slept in more than 24 hours... Now I’m unable to function if someone wakes me up 15 minutes early. Getting old is awesome. .

It’s the last official weekend...

I read something the other day on Facebook that said that the song that was number 1 on your 14th birthday, defines your life. I googled it, excited to find a message, a sign (I’m a sucker for that sort of thing). Instead, I found it was “Cream” by Prince. 😐 Cream? What does that mean? Ice cream? Coffee creamer? 
So I looked it up... and read the lyrics. "Cream" was meant to mean “cream of the crop”. There are lyrics like “everything you do is success” and my favorite part... “Do your dance
Why should you wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make you stronger”  Message received, Prince. Message received. 
What song was number one on your 14th birthday?

This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

Individual Banana Pudding Jar Recipe feat. NESTLE® LA LECHERA®

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of NESTLE® LA LECHERA®. The opinions and text are all mine.

The holidays are quickly approaching. For my super family, that means getting together, unplugging from our day to day responsibilities and enjoying every moment with those we love. A big part of our holiday gatherings is centered around the food we make. While we occasionally try new dishes, making certain dishes has become a tradition. One of our favorite desserts is banana pudding. This year, I’ve adapted a family favorite into individual banana pudding jars with a little twist.

I believe the holiday dinner tradition started when I was a kid. I remember helping my nana make her individual dessert cups for her guests. Every holiday, we worked together to prepare them, placing them in the extra refrigerator in her garage. It took a lot of self-control not to go in there and eat one, but somehow, even as a child, I managed to restrain myself and wait until I was told I could have one (or two). Those holiday meals will always have a special place in my heart. Whether it was immediate family or family from out of town, nana always took the time to make sure they felt at home and had a meal that was good enough to serve in a restaurant. I’m talking three or four courses of pure yummy!

Sharing Traditions and Banana Pudding.

Now that I’m a grown up and have a family of my own, I look forward to those holiday family dinners. And although we are all so busy and don’t get together as often as I wish we could, I really enjoy spending the day preparing each dish, just like my nana used to. My favorite part is definitely coming up with new ways to serve our traditional favorites. It’s something I’ve been wanting to share with you all for a while, so I figured there’s no place better to start than with dessert!

The key to these individual banana pudding jars is the layers. Layering vanilla wafers, fresh bananas and pudding and then topping with a little dark chocolate and a crunchy, chocolate dipped banana chip, gives you an incredible experience of different textures and tons of flavor.  While I used to make a large batch, in one container, I’m loving this new twist. These small mason jars are the perfect portion size for your dinner guests and can be easily sealed with a lid so that the flavor stays packed in until they’re ready to eat.

Now is the perfect time to try it out because when you visit www.getthesavings.com/lalechera you will save $0.75 when you purchase two NESTLÉ®  LA LECHERA products at Publix now through 12/16/18.

It’s all about the Ingredients.

One of the many reasons I love this recipe (besides the fact that it’s SO yummy) is that it’s easy to make and leaves me more time to spend with my family. It’s one that my kids love helping me with because there’s no baking involved. The key to the perfect individual banana pudding jars is your ingredients.  I make sure to buy all of the best, freshest ingredients at my local Publix.  When it comes to condensed milk, I only useLA LECHERA Sweetened Condensed Milk. LA LECHERA has an authentic flavor and is available both in a can and in a squeeze bottle (look for the new packaging in stores now), which I love because if I don’t need the whole can for a specific recipe, I can refrigerate the rest!

  8. Add another layer of cookies.

  14. Meanwhile, open each jar and drizzle melted chocolate on top.
  15. Top with a vanilla wafer and a banana chip.
  16. Enjoy!
