Before we scheduled our trip, I made the mistake of asking people about their experience with @legolandflorida. {Hosted} I was told that it was small and more fun for toddlers. They said my 10 and 14 year old wouldn't really enjoy it. Even though Falynn was ecstatic about it, I was honestly expecting to be disappointed. I will be the first to admit that I was VERY wrong. We all loved it! There was something for each of us to enjoy and all three of my girls can't wait to go back! Our first trip to Legoland will definitely not be our last. Today on the blog, I’m talking about why we loved it even more than Disney! You can read all about it by clicking the link in our bio or swiping up in stories. .

Before we scheduled our trip,...

Imagine being in your home, taking care of your baby and suddenly being ordered to leave. Imagine being told you could take only one small bag and everything else would be seized. Imagine being packed into a cattle car for days with no food or water or even room to move. Just a bucket in the corner, to be used as a bathroom and a tiny window for ventilation. Imagine people dying on that cattle car, right next to you. Imagine arriving at a concentration camp and immediately having your baby torn from your arms. Imagine having a number tattooed on your arm, to be used as your “identification”. Imagine finding out your Mother, husband and baby were killed for no reason at all,  aside from the fact that they were Jewish. No, this isn’t fiction. This is what it was like for my Auntie Rose and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust. Today on the blog, I’m talking about how it affected my family, both the survivors and those that were taken from us because they were too young, too old, too sick or too weak to work. January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let’s use this day as a day to reflect on what happened, and remind ourselves that people are people, regardless of their religion, race, or beliefs and we should all treat each other with respect. Never again. .

After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Dill Stuffing Recipe for Thanksgiving

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, 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!

First, let me say that this recipe is EASY. So if you aren’t an expert in the kitchen, don’t worry! Usually, I’ll make it the day before Thanksgiving and put it in the fridge. I make double so half can be stuffed inside of the turkey and the other half can be baked and get nice and crisp. This will give your guests two options, as the dressing inside of the turkey can be a little on the soggier side. You may even find that they want to put a little of both on their plate, for variety!

Thanksgiving Dill Stuffing or Dressing

An easy and delicious recipe for stuffing/dressing. This can be used to stuff the turkey or can be made as a separate dish.
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Keyword: dressing, stuffing, thanksgiving
Servings: 8 people

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf rye bread cubed
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • fresh dill chopped, stems removed
  • poultry seasoning to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Instructions

  • Chop one loaf of bread into cubes and place onto a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with garlic powder.
  • Bake until bread is toasted (approx. 5-10 minutes).
  • In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Add chopped onions and celery and cook until you reach your desired consistency, stirring occassionally. We prefer to leave a little crunch, but you may prefer them soft.
  • Add fresh dill, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.
  • Stir in bread cubes until evenly coated.
  • Add chicken broth and mix well.
  • Refrigerate in a casserole dish so that it's cool when you are ready to stuff the turkey.
  • To bake in a casserole dish as a side dish, put in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 350°.

This dill stuffing is always a hit with our guests (especially our niece). It also goes perfectly with our fresh cranberry orange relish. If you love it, it’s one of those recipes that you can make any time of the year. In fact, we make this dill stuffing at least three times a year as a side dish.  It’s THAT good. I encourage you to make it your own too. Is there another veggie you love? Chop it up and add it in.

What are your go-to recipes for Thanksgiving? Do you make the same thing every year or try to switch it up? Comment below and share! And don’t forget to check out our recipe for fresh cranberry and orange relish!

This dill stuffing can be used to stuff your Thanksgiving turkey or as a side dish, perfect all year round.
