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.

Searching for the Unicorn of Green Smoothies?

I was given a challenge by my kids… find a green smoothie that doesn’t taste like a green smoothie.  Confused? Yep… I was too.  I personally love green smoothies and green juices but I know that when it comes to kids, their taste buds want sweet, yummy and fruity.  So we were on the hunt for the unicorn of green smoothies.  Just when I thought it was impossible, I found a combination that could be exactly what I was looking for.

Packed with spinach, this smoothie includes good for you foods like banana, mango, freshly squeezed orange juice and coconut milk.  I added some maple syrup for a little added sweetness and topped with shredded coconut.  My husband and I loved it!  It had been so long since we had a green smoothie and it was like seeing an old friend.

My Kids Opinion.

My kids?  Well, they didn’t share the sentiment.  Unfortunately, it was “too spinachy” though if you’ve ever had a smoothie with spinach in it, you’ll probably agree that you can’t really taste the spinach.  While they love cooked spinach, they just can’t be convinced that raw spinach is good too. But don’t think I’m giving up on that one!  I’m already working on another one to change their mind!

Low in fat and even lower in cholesterol, spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. In other words, it’s loaded with good things for every part of your body!*

    Mango coconut?? Sounds amazing! And smoothies are for sure the easiest way to sneak some greens in on your kiddos. My girls don’t even blink anymore at what we call the ‘Mean Green Smoothie’ with lots of fruits in it to keep the ‘green’ from being overpowering.

    This looks fabulous. My only question is how coconut-y is it? I have tried and tried and coconut is not my favorite thing. I can cook with coconut milk because I generally can’t taste it. I will have to check this out!

    • Heather Castillo

    It’s too bad your kids couldn’t be swayed. I really love spinach and agree that you really can’t taste it in smoothies, but it provides a great source of iron and other nutrients.

    I am not a huge fan of coconut is there an alternative you would reccomend? I would love to give it a try outside of that because I need to incorporate more veggies in my diet and this would be an easy way to do it

    • Heather Castillo

      You can leave the coconut out if you don’t like it. It will still taste great!

    It can be hard to mask the taste of spinach in a smoothie or even coconut for that matter given both are such powerful flavors. I love green smoothies and I sometimes use kale instead of spinach to mix things up.

  • valmg @ Mom Knows It All
    January 26, 2018

    I must say that even though I love smoothies, I am with your kids on not liking the flavor of green ones. I can see where this would be appealing for some folks that didn’t like traditional green smoothies.

  • Pam
    January 26, 2018

    I’ve never been able to get into the green smoothie trend. Maybe this recipe will be the one to change that!

    I never think to put mango in smoothies! I really should, it looks so amazing.

  • Heather
    January 26, 2018

    It looks like such a good recipe. I think the mango would make it taste really tropical and I wouldn’t even taste the spinach at all.

  • Sarah Bailey
    January 26, 2018

    Yum! This sounds absolutely delicious – I be the mango and coconut taste absolutely delicious together as well.

  • Amber Myers

    I’m with your kids on green smoothies, however, I think this one sounds really good. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I might be able to join the adult world with this green smoothie!

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh
    January 26, 2018

    I love green smoothies! Smoothies in general are a great way to get a lot of nutrients packed into a breakfast, lunch, or snack.

  • Jeanette
    January 26, 2018

    This is exactly what I am looking for. I am working on eating healthier and learning more about nutrition and something like this would also hit my sweet tooth which is what is my biggest problem. TJ
