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!

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?

Don’t Take Life Too Seriously [feat. Reign ™]

If You Love It, Share It!

While we have rules in our house, we try to teach our girls to have fun too!  It’s hard to grow up in a world where everything revolves around technology.  You don’t see kids playing outside as much anymore because a) there are a lot of scary people out there and b) because they have their faces in their iPhones or iPads most of the time and don’t have the desire to play outside.  It makes me sad to know that my girls won’t have that simple childhood that I had.  My after school time consisted of bouncing a ball against our garage door, playing cards with my grandma, helping my grandpa pick fruit and riding my bike around the neighborhood with no hands.  Sure, I watched cartoons, but it was for an hour at the most. I couldn’t wait to go outside and play.

03142017_6.jpg
Tee: Lulu’s Lovely Tees, Bloomers and Leg Warmers: Reign™, Shoes: Fab Kids

While most activities in our house revolve around technology, I love that my girls love to ride their bikes and go to the local playground as often as we can take them.  And believe it or not, being Brand Reps has also given my girls an excuse to go outside, everyday for at least 15-30 minutes.  They play, explore and run around and I get to capture it all with my camera.  It’s rewarding to know that I can help out small shops while my girls have some time away from their screens.  We try to teach them that while there are things that have to be done like chores and homework, they also need to enjoy their childhood and not take life too seriously (at least not until they are adults). I think it’s safe to say that as hard as they work in school and around the house, they are having fun and being kids just as much, if not more.

03142017_4.jpg
Tank: Reign™, Leggings: Little Harts and Arrows

So many people tell me that Falynn’s pictures really capture her personality. You can tell that she’s pretty much a ball of happiness, all of the time.  I like to have fun with her photoshoots and while she likes to be comfy, she also likes to play pretend.  Sometime last year, I discovered a small shop that was super edgy and fun, called Reign™.  There were SO many pieces that fit our fun vibe but at that point, I didn’t really have a spot to photograph these awesome pieces in, so I just admired them from afar.  Last month, I finally got the courage to make a purchase and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  I should start by saying that there are over 100 pieces in their shop and if I had the money, I would have purchased most of them.  Each and every piece is fun and totally different than anything I’ve ever seen.

03142017_2.jpg
Knit Beanie and Tank: Reign™, Leggings: Little Harts and Arrows, Boots: Dr. Martens

After about an hour of online window shopping, I finally settled on my favorite pieces.  I had emailed the shop owner to ask a question and her response was quick and super friendly.  I think I had built up this idea in my head about this particular shop because they have so many followers and are clearly loved by so many, that I may have to wait to get back a one word answer (you know the shops I’m talking about right?).  I’m not afraid to admit to the world that I was wrong in assuming.  I’ve had nothing but phenomonal customer service from Reign™ since day 1!  The owner is just as sweet as she is talented.

03142017_7.jpg
Bloomers: Reign™

And when my package arrived (which was about a week after I purchased – HUGE plus), I was even more in love with the brand.  The details are everything with Reign™.  Each piece has this fun, whimsical trait about it and I knew that Falynn was going to have fun with these pieces.   First, there was the knit beanie with the kitty ears.  And what made it even more awesome was that the kitty ears have EARRINGS!!!  Little hoop earrings.  I died when I saw them.  It’s something so simple to add and totally blew my mind.  They took a cutesy hat and turned it into something super edgy and fun with just a few little silver hoops.  Of course, Falynn refused to leave the house without a cat nose drawn on to go with her hat, but I happily complied.

The 2nd piece were the cutest bloomers ever created, the “Jagger Bloomers”.  They are a thin, mesh, faux leather material with an original edgy look.  They feature the famous Rolling Stones tongue and lips logo on the back and fun little accents along the bottom and on the side. They were the perfect addition to our unicorn photoshoot which turned a tee into an edgy lovers dream! I’m not ashamed to admit that I want Falynn to wear them every single day. They are THAT cute.

03142017_1.jpg
Hat: Justice, Tank: Reign™

Next, I purchased an embellished tank top.  Basics are super important in brand repping because we get a lot of surprise items and you have to be able to match them easily.  This tank top is super soft and goes with just about anything.  We have been able to use it in 2 different photoshoots in the past month. It’s my go-to top, for sure.

And finally, probably my favorite accessory of all time (and that’s coming from someone who owns an accessories shop), the faux fur leg warmers.  These leg warmers are not only GORGEOUS but they are made with the most soft and high quality faux fur and are embellished to perfection.  Falynn couldn’t wait to get these on and refused to take them off.  If I remember correctly, she actually fell asleep in them.  I wonder if she dreamt of unicorns that night.

    She is just so adorable! I agree kids seem to have to grow up way to quickly and being a child often goes by the wayside. When our kids were little we spent much of our time at a campground where the kids could play and just be kids. We didn’t have neighbors at home so this was necessary to hang out with other kids.
