In 2016, I had a fire lit under me. I remember being so passionate about doing my part in the fight against racism. I thought I was saying and doing all of the right things to get through to others. But then I replied to someone’s “Black lives matter” quote with “All lives matter, stop dividing us (something along those lines).” And people started replying to me in the most negative way. ⁣
⁣
I was honestly so confused. Didn’t they know I was on their side? ⁣
⁣
So instead of continuing to try to prove my point, I reached out to a friend from high school and asked her if she would explain what I had done wrong. And even though she didn’t have to, she did. And I understood immediately why what I said was absolutely the wrong thing to say. Thank you, Kendra!⁣
⁣
If you are using the term “all lives matter” in response to anything that is going on in our country right now, I implore you to research why it’s wrong. There are a number of articles and graphics out there that explain it brilliantly. One being the picture of two houses, one on fire and one perfectly fine. But a person is spraying water on the house that isn’t burning down, while saying “all houses matter”. Of course they do, but right now, we need to focus and save the one that is burning down. ⁣
⁣
For a lot of us, this is new and as we continue to fight, we will make mistakes, as I did years ago. But as long as we are learning from those mistakes, and growing as people, it’s ok! Recognize where you’ve gone wrong. Learn why. Continue to educate others. We are stronger together. ⁣

Yesterday, I read. ⁣
I watched. ⁣
I listened. ⁣
I shared. ⁣
⁣
And even if every single other person in this country did the same thing on #blackouttuesday, it didn’t magically change the lives of black people overnight. It was only 24 hours. That shouldn’t surprise you. ⁣
⁣
We still have work to do. ⁣
⁣
We need to continue to read, continue to watch, continue to listen, continue to share... Continue to teach our kids and have the uncomfortable conversations with those around us that still don’t understand that this isn’t about all lives. This is about black lives. This isn’t about not being a racist. This is about anti-racism. ⁣
⁣
Continuing to educate ourselves and others so that things will change speaks louder than any black box ever will. ⁣
⁣
Will you stay silent or will you arm yourself with the knowledge you need to fight? ⁣

Yesterday, I read. ⁣ I...

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. ⁣

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). ⁣

How We Made Distance Learning Easier on the Kids

Distance learning is not something any of us were prepared for. In fact, it’s not even a term that was in our vocabulary in February of this year. When it was announced that our county would be “distance learning” until further notice, my first instinct was to panic. I had very little time in my day as it was and including three kids with three very different curriculums terrified me, as I’m sure it did many working parents.

While distance learning isn’t technically homeschool, because we aren’t making the lesson plans (thank goodness for our teachers), we are still responsible for making sure our kids do the work their teachers are assigning them, make sure they attend the live video meetings and maybe most importantly, make sure they have the tools they need to succeed.

two girls with purosound headphones

Originally we had prepared for a few weeks, which turned into a month, and then the rest of the school year (maybe a month into the next year as well). We were lucky to have two laptops in the house for the girls to use and received a loaner from the school for our youngest, so everyone had access to their own device. Of course, with three girls, in three different grades, listening to teacher assigned videos and having class meetings on a regular basis, we needed to make sure they could concentrate and not be distracted by the noises around them.

So when I was making a list for our must-haves, at the top of my list was noise cancelling headphones. I researched a number of brands, asked around and was told that PuroQuiet from Puro Sound Labs were the best! They are volume limiting active noise cancelling headphones and they protect their ears. They have a long battery life (from 16-22 hours) and can connect via bluetooth. They also have a 30 day money back guarantee and a one year warranty. The girls love them and even use them outside of school hours as well, with their phones and tablets.

Next on my list, because I wanted the girls to be able to do their school work anywhere they felt comfortable, both inside or outside, was a lap desk. Lap desks are great for so many reasons. I love that they create an instant desk, no matter where you are. So when the girls decide it’s treehouse school day, they grab their lap desks from LapGear® and head out.  While there are so many great ones on the market, LapGear® offers a huge variety for all ages (I use one too) and offers some of the cutest lap desks for kids! Falynn’s MyMonster lap desk is the CUTEST and the cushion design not only creates a stable work surface, but also keeps her little legs cool.

Adjusting to distance learning has been a learning process for us, but the girls can now succeed, thanks to these tools.

yoobi school supplies

When the girls left school in mid-March, they thought that they would be back, so they left all of their school supplies behind. I wanted to make sure their transition to distance learning was easier, by providing them with similar supplies. Yoobi has been their favorite brand for years! You have probably seen their notebooks, pens, markers, pencil cases, scissors (and so much more) in Target. They are the brightly colored, super fun school supplies that kids (and Moms) love.  But what you may not know is that for every Yoobi item purchased, they will donate a school supply item to a child in need right here in the U.S. It’s just one more reason to love and support the brand!

Girl reaching into a personalized storage bin

Finally, I made sure to create a special space and easy storage for each of the girls and personalized them with our Cricut Joy. You can learn all about that fun project by checking out how we transformed our home school space at home with Cricut Joy.

How is your family adjusting to distance learning? Are there specific products that have made things easier on you? Comment below and let us know! We love to hear from our readers!

Here are the tools you need to make distance learning easier on your kids, so they can adjust to school from home.

    You are such an inspiration. Homeschooling is challenging for all of us and all tips are welcome. That lap desk is great. I have to get that for my kid. He doesn’t really like to sit by the table when he’s learning, he always sits on the couch. Thanks!

    That’s wonderful news! It’s great that you guys make distance learning work for you and that they enjoy it as well. Here in our home, the only thing that’s change is that my eldest daughter who is in ccollege got her class suspended and is staying at home while my other 2 kids go on with their homeschooling.

    I think I’m fortunate not to have school-aged children to look after in the house, although I have done teaching in a previous role. It can certainly seem daunting and even my brother (who does have school-age kids) is busy doing what he can (and he is a teacher by profession, but for senior grades). I think how you have planned it all is great as it is obviously working and the addition of the equipment will no doubt be a good help for your kids to concentrate and achieve during these pandemic restrictions.

    Distance learning has definitely been an adjustment for us. I’ve got two little ones (Kindergarten and 3yr preschool) so learning is very hands-on with them. I need to be with my kindergartener to make sure he is doing what he’s supposed to. We haven’t heard much about next year but we’re hoping they can return to school right away in September.

    I love all the ideas you did! We made a little homeschool area for the kids in our office but then found out it works better to use Mom’s computer seems I am right there with them 🙂 Now it’s more of a crafty space for all of our recently acquired craft items.
