There’s something about a good, homemade stuffing (or dressing as some call it) that makes the whole Thanksgiving meal that much better. I have tried a number of different types of stuffing in my years, but I always found them to be very soggy and while many love it that way, I’m just not a fan of the mush. Once we had kids and I started wanting to cook entire thanksgiving feasts by myself, I realized that without the perfect stuffing recipe, my feast was going to be more of a flop. Over the years, I finally perfected the recipe and now, I’m excited to share it with all of you on the blog today (link is in my bio or you can swipe up in stories).

Apparently, it’s my birthday 🎂 … Isn’t it funny how as you get older, your birthday gets less and less exciting? I used to do a countdown, like a month in advance. I would remind everyone I saw. It was ridiculous. Now, if it wasn’t for the 3049823048 notifications that I get from FB, from all of the people that I haven’t heard from since last year, I might not even remember it’s my birthday at all. But since the cat’s out of the bag, yes, it’s my birthday. I’m 35 + shipping and handling and feel every bit my age, especially when I try to keep up with my kids . I’m spending the day packing for my birthday vacation (whoop!) and look forward to celebrating with my family! Since I can’t take you all with me, I’ve joined a bunch of really awesome bloggers to give away $430 on the blog today! So take a minute, click on the #linkinbio or swipe up in stories and enter to win! What would you do with the extra money?

While I do talk about it in DMs when people reach out, it occurred to me that many of you are unaware of my other blog, @thesuperblogcoach. The story behind it is that I had a couple of incredible women who taught me what I needed to know to become a successful blogger and influencer so I could support my family through this fun career. I wanted to make sure I did the same for others. It got difficult repeating things over and over again so I decided to create a site where I would blog solely about tips for bloggers and influencers, no matter where in their journey they are. That way, I could direct people over there and they can read at their own speed. I don’t charge for any of the info. It’s totally free. Just my way of paying it forward. I hope you’ll check it out and if you have anything you’re currently struggling with, let me know. I’ll add it to my topic list for future blog posts! Now tell me, did you know about thesuperblogcoach.com?

In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

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.

    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.

    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

    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

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

    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
