When I was younger, I thought I knew what the “perfect guy” was. Turns out, I was looking for all the wrong things... Until I met Super Dad. I really lucked out with this one. Among the things that I love about him, he is first and foremost THE most incredible Dad. It’s moments like this one I captured at the pumpkin patch, when I can’t help falling in love with him all over again.  I’m a lucky girl. What is your favorite thing about your significant other?

Iyla is one-of-a-kind. At only 10 years old, she’s always extra sensitive to others feelings, as much as she is her own. #ad But this beautiful trait also causes her to be extra cautious. Living in Florida, we have pretty regular, nasty storms, including hurricanes. She often hides and seeks shelter, not only for herself, but for her little sister. She creates a comfortable space, in our laundry room and sets up pillows, blankets and has plenty to keep them distracted. Crafts are a great option, because they keep her busy and she is able to create something to remind her that she made it through the storm. 
Loopies by @alex_toys is a new favorite because she’s able to create her own plush character! They are pre-sewn and come with the softest Chenille yarn and a crochet hook. All she had to do was just stuff, pull the loops of yarn, and add the Loopies’ features like faces and paws. Crafts like #Loopies help Iyla to feel in control of the situations that she would otherwise feel a little helpless. 
They have a variety of characters available, including this adorable puppy and are perfect for ages 7+. Check out more Loopies characters at Walmart!  Do your kids love crafts too?

As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Halloween is a great time for your kids to express their individuality and personality! But buying a ready-made costume gives them a chance to walk into a Halloween party and find someone wearing the exact same costume. Ready made costumes can also get pretty pricey. So this year, I challenged our teenager to create her own costume, using only pieces found at our local thrift store. I was pleasantly surprised to see that she was able to put together this DIY Kim Possible costume for under $20.

Kim Possible was originally released in 2002, three years before our oldest daughter was born, but it was a favorite of hers growing up. Kim is a high schooler who fights crime on a regular basis while dealing with everyday teenage issues. If you ask her to sing the theme song, she still can, word for word. She was also turned into a live action movie in February of 2019.

What I love most about Kim Possible is how simple her outfit really is.

An inexpensive and fun costume idea. We got everything we need for a DIY Kim Possible costume at our local thrift store for less than $20.

What You’ll Need for Your DIY Kim Possible Costume

Black Top: Kim Possible’s black top in the cartoon is 3/4 sleeved and a turtle neck; however, since we live in Florida, there aren’t many long sleeved, let alone, turtle neck tees to be found. Lucia was able to find this black short sleeve top, which she trimmed to make a crop top, for only $3.97.

Cargo Pants: Kim Possible rocks green cargo pants, but Lucia was able to find these khaki cargo pants which are pretty similar and can be worn throughout the year, for only $4.97.

Black Gloves: In the cartoon, Kim Possible wears what looks to me like black rubber dish washing gloves. In the live action film, she wears fingerless gloves. Lucia was able to find these fingerless gloves for $4.

Utility Belt: Kim Possible rocks a brown, utility belt which we thought we’d never find. Luckily, we had a brown purse at home that she was able to cut and feed through her belt loops to use as a belt.

Red Wig: Kim Possible wouldn’t be right without her bright reddish orange hair. We were surprised to find that our local thrift store actually sells costume wigs before Halloween. She picked up this wig for $7.

Black Shoes: Since Kim Possible’s black shoes are hidden in the cartoon version, Lucia decided to pull out her black lace up boots which were perfect for this costume!

Makeup: It’s funny the things you notice when you’re paying attention. Did you ever notice that Kim Possible has a dark red lipstick only on the top lip? Lucia had a blast recreating that with a dark red lipstick on top, and concealer on her bottom lip.

She did a great job with her DIY Kim Possible costume, didn’t she? And believe it or not, she found a 2nd costume at the thrift store and you won’t believe what we paid for it! Stay tuned. We will share it in the next couple of weeks! Any guesses?

Make sure to check out all of our Halloween posts and stay tuned for some more recipes and tips!
