Like most of you, I watched George Floyd fight for his last breath on national TV, by someone whose job it was to protect people. It sickened me.⁣
⁣
I’ve struggled to find the words to express how I was feeling. In all honesty, I was afraid to speak about it in fear that I would say the wrong thing or my thoughts would be misinterpreted.⁣
⁣
But staying silent can be misinterpreted too.⁣
⁣
Yesterday morning I watched an IGTV video by @cut and I knew I couldn’t stay silent any longer.⁣
⁣
I am a white woman. I will NEVER know what it’s like to be a person of color. I will never be pulled over because of the color of my skin. I have never been afraid of the police. And knowing that so many, at a young age are taught to act a certain way around a police officer, in fear that they may be arrested or worse, killed, for absolutely no reason at all, breaks my heart.⁣
⁣
But this isn’t about me or my feelings.⁣
⁣
This is about the senseless killings that continue happening. It’s about the injustice that people of color face. It’s about so many families that have lost loved ones. It’s about all of the beautiful black children and their parents and grandparents and extended family, that are afraid of what could happen to them because of the color of their skin.⁣
⁣
Imagine leaving your home every day and wondering if you’ll ever return. No one should ever have to feel that way.⁣
⁣
It’s time we stopped the silence and did something about it. It’s time we focus on change and how we can do better. I’m sharing ways we can make a change on the blog today and I’ve included the link in my bio. ⁣

Best part about having a teenage daughter? We can enjoy Lifetime Original Movies together! [ad] I'm so excited for this weekend's movie marathon! @LifetimeTV has always been one of my favorites and just like me, this year they are celebrating 30 incredible years (wink, wink)! ⁣
⁣
Lucia and I are ready for a weekend of movies, popcorn and LOTS of commentary. Somehow, even if it's a drama or a thriller, we find ourselves laughing. She definitely shares my crazy sense of humor. ⁣
⁣
Today we are planning on watching Death of a Cheerleader at 11am EST and Flowers in the Attic at 4pm EST and tomorrow, Beaches at 12pm EST. ⁣
⁣
The marathon begins today at 11am EST and ends Sunday night.. so grab your popcorn and tune in with us. Don't forget to check out our stories where we'll be sharing what it's like to watch a movie with us (almost as entertaining as the movies themselves). #LifetimeLoyals  #LifetimeTV #LOM30 ⁣

I don’t know who needs to hear this right now, but this is only temporary. ⁣
⁣
I’ve said it to myself a million times since I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder. And now, during this pandemic, it’s something we all have to focus on. ⁣
⁣
We won’t always be locked in our homes. We won’t always have to wear a mask in public. Our kids won’t always be schooled online. We won’t always be out of work. Because just like anxiety, this pandemic is only temporary. ⁣
⁣
Enjoy your family. Cherish every moment you are being “forced” to spend with them. Your kids are growing up and they won’t always be little. Having them at home with you is just as temporary. ⁣

Today on the blog, our friend Alison @theanxietyhealer is sharing her personal struggle and how she’s coping with anxiety during a pandemic. She’s also included her favorite affirmations for you. Link is in my bio (or swipe up in stories). ⁣

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!⁣

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?⁣

How We are Surviving Cold + Flu Season

If You Love It, Share It!

Cold and flu season has arrived. So, for those of us with kids, that means that we should expect the germs to be coming into our homes any moment now and then passing through each of us slowly and painfully. It’s a time when our kids get to see just how “super” we are as we battle stuffy noses, fatigue, that awful, endless coughing and the desire to lock ourselves in our room and hide under the covers for 3-4 days. Unfortunately, most parents don’t have that luxury, so if we catch those icky germs, we are forced to incorporate them into our busy lives like a new, gross accessory. So, what are we to do?

Among the obvious things that we try to do like washing our hands regularly, dressing for the weather and not subjecting our kids to those germy playground areas, we focus on their health. Our girls love healthy snacks, so you’ll always find lots of fruit and veggies in our fridge. And while they love a cookie or chips, they will always balance them out with things like carrot sticks, kale chips and berries. While we try to get as many of those vitamins into our girls as we can, we also have a little secret weapon that will provide what they aren’t getting daily.

In our family, vitamins can’t just be in fun shapes. They must taste good too. My girls love the Gummy Vitamin C Slices, so it’s more like a treat vs. a vitamin (though they know not to eat them like candy).  It’s become a fun routine in the morning for them to grab one before they get on the bus. They love the taste, but I know that it’s helping to boost their immune system and give them the vitamin C they need. Rainbow Light® also offers a Women’s and Men’s One a Day for us, because let’s face it, we forget to eat, let alone make sure we are getting all of the vitamins we need every day.  Make sure to check out their full line and stock up for cold and flu season.

What are you doing to keep away the germs during cold and flu season? Comment below and let us know!

    I love the idea of a vitamin that takes into account food allergies and sensitivities. I have a friend who is gluten intolerant and it amazes me all the ways it negatively affects her life. With these vitamins, at least she has one less thing to worry about.

    Getting flu vaccine is your best defense

    I’ve always hated it when it’s cold since it’s so easy to get flu. But it seems that you are dealing with the flu really good with the multivitamins.

  • Louisa

    It is definitely flu season now. Even with getting the flu shot, I make sure to take a daily multivitamin supplement to keep my immune system up.

    These are great! My youngest has already been sick but I’ve avoided it so far. (Knock on wood) I’ve been taking elderberry daily, so I think that helps a bit. Stock up and take those vitamins!

  • Destany
    November 6, 2018

    I have never heard of this particular brand, but I think vitamins are a super idea! My 14-year-old doesn’t always eat the way I wish he would, and I can always count on him getting a little extra with vitamins!

  • Pam

    Multivitamins are a good way to make sure you’re getting the nutrition you need to stay healthy during cold and flu season. These sound like a great choice.

  • Kathy

    This is great! Vitamins are critical to keep you healthy! I like to take my Vitamin C and Elderberry syrup this time of year!

  • Catalina
    November 6, 2018

    You are so right! I don’t have the luxury to hide under the covers for 3-4 days. I can’t do this even for only 1 day, so these vitamins were created especially for me! 🙂

  • Melissa | Primp And Prime Beauty
    November 6, 2018

    Vitamin C works wonders! I need to look into this brand for my kids.

  • Melissa Chapman
    November 6, 2018

    I take Vitamin D and calcium everyday so these gummies would be a great idea. I will have to try the teen formula which I had never seen for my kids.

  • Joan
    November 6, 2018

    I have not tried this brand yet but looks tasty. I should probably try and switch my boys vitamins to something else.

  • Melissa Chapman
    November 6, 2018

    I am a daily user of calcium and Vitamin D so these gummies seem like the perfect choice for me and the teen mixture for my kids. I don’t like pills so gummies like this are perfect.

  • Tamara
    November 6, 2018

    My family takes vitamins and I know that is one of the big reasons why we don’t get sick. Vitamin C is really big to keep the sniffles away.

  • GiGi Eats
    November 6, 2018

    YES! Rainbow light will forever be one of my favorite brands! They even have tasty protein powder I used to be obsessed with (I am no so much a protein powder person these days though). Their vitamins never disappoint me!

  • Cris
    November 6, 2018

    I could really use this. I caught a cold about a week ago, and it doesn’t seem to want to leave. Thanks for the tip!

  • Candy
    November 6, 2018

    These must be the hot new vitamins and health care for this winter. Hopefully we don’t catch anything that last very long

  • Tomi C
    November 6, 2018

    Vitamin gummies are about the only way my kids will take their vitamins. I remember the medicine-y taste of vitamins when I was a kid and that chalky ring they left in your hands.
