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. .

Easy Vegan Granola Recipe

We are constantly looking for yummy, good-for-you snacks.  Our family recently discovered that we all really love granola! I mean, what’s not to love?  Oats, nuts, dried fruits, maple syrup, all baked until it’s toasted and golden brown.  Drooling yet?  While store-bought granola is good, there is nothing quite like homemade granola.  I’m excited to share this vegan granola recipe that is not only delicious, but so easy to make!

A Versatile Snack

Granola makes a great breakfast or snack and is great on yogurt, smoothie bowls, with fruit, on ice cream, with almond milk or even on its own!  Since we made our first batch this week, we have been trying it in every way we can think of.  It’s interesting to see how we all eat it differently. My 12-year-old prefers to eat it straight out of a bowl, on its own.  My 8-year-old eats it like cereal with some almond milk.  My 5-year-old eats it with strawberries, for breakfast.  My husband loves it on top of dairy free yogurt with berries.  I personally love it on smoothie bowls (which by the way is the next recipe I will be sharing this week, so stay tuned!) I love that we can make a big batch and enjoy it in so many different ways!

You can add raisins or other dried fruits, brown sugar, different types of nuts (almonds or walnuts maybe)… the possibilities are endless. We’ve even thrown some in a little container to take with us. It’s a great on the go snack!  The best part is, it only takes 5 minutes to prep with my easy-read measuring cup set, small mix ‘n scraper, stainless steel whisk and my other awesome new Pampered Chef kitchen tools!

What would you put in your granola? Comment below and let us know!

    I love granola, but it is so expensive I rarely buy it. I don’t know why I never thought to make my own. This recipe looks easy enough.

  • Chubskulit Rose

    Homemade granolas are the best because you can put anything that you want in it. I love it with pecans, walnuts, and cranberries.

  • Pam
    February 2, 2019

    Homemade granola is so much better than storebought. Most of it has honey in it, though, so it’s nice to see a vegan recipe!

  • Ricci
    February 2, 2019

    I LOVE granola but have never made my own before! I need to try this recipe!

  • Nichole Arnold

    What a great and healthy recipe. I am going to try this out for our next road trip to have something tasty on hand that isn’t processed!

  • Lynndee

    I always enjoy a good granola. That looks good. Would love to give it a try one day.

  • Norma

    Awesome recipe! I love eating oats and granola. I tried one time to make my own granola and I had to eat it myself because nobody liked it. This recipe sounds delicious. I will try it soon.

    When I’m to have a tight day, I run for a heavier breakfast that usually includes some granola with yoghurts or a smoothie. And it sorts me! Your recipe is just as yummy!

    Nice suggestion. I am inspired. Today, I had overnight oatmeal with yogurt and chia seeds. Tomorrow, maybe I can have this. 🙂

    I love it! Such an easy and delicious recipe. I use granola basically every day – it’s much cheaper and healthier to DIY following your recipe!

  • Dennis Littley

    Your granola looks delicious and the recipe looks so easy it makes sense to make it at home! This would be perfect for breakfast or over some fresh seasonal fruit.

  • Teresa

    I’ve made homemade granola a few times and I always seem to do something wrong. It always comes out a bit tasting burnt? I will have to try agian I think.

  • Karen Dawkins

    I am a huge fan of homemade granola, but I’ve never made it with coconut. I pinned your recipe to make this weekend! Thanks so much.

    This is a great recipe. However, I have never try to make them. We always buy our granola cereal, and we love to eat it with berries and yogurt as well as your husband. This is our preferences, and we love that way. Nevertheless, there are always different ideas to try something new.

  • Heather

  • Terri Beavers

    i just started making overnight oats again and realized that this version would be an interesting idea to try! im a huge granola fan but never thought to try and make it vegan for a few friends of mine who are! cant wait to try it!

    • Heather Castillo

      I still haven’t tried to make overnight oats, but I would love to!

  • candy

    Making granola is simple and I don’t understand why more people don’t make their own. I must like this granola because I see I commented a year ago. We do love our granola.

  • Joan
    February 1, 2019

    Nothing better than a granola breakfast always, simple fast and scrumptious at the same time and this looks great.

  • Cristina Petrini
    February 1, 2019

    It does not really fit in my taste, I admit it, but I think it could still be a healthy idea for breakfast or snack!

  • Alexandra
    February 1, 2019

    This sounds like just a wonderful granola recipe, and a great breakfast recipe to have on hand! Delicious!

  • rika

    I love granola but don’t buy it often because store-bought granola contains a lot of sugar. This recipe looks amazing and healthy!

  • Sandy N Vyjay

    Granola is a healthy option. We eat lots of granola bars especially when travelling. This is a good homemade recipe that hopefully, we should be able to make.

  • Nikka Shae

    I’m always looking for healthier options too. This is the perfect healthy snack.

  • ANOSA

    Been making some of this before and this is a great reminder for me to reconsider making granola snacks again. We’ll see if this will be my very first recipe to try after a long time.

    I love granola and my kids love granola. I love the idea of making it at home and in a healthier way with less sugar in it.

  • Ching

    what a concidence! I was just asking my friend where I could buy just granola because I wanted to have it over plain greek yogurt. I never thought of making it myself! love it.

  • Pam

    My granddaughter is allergic to milk, so I am always on the lookout for good vegan recipes to try. This granola sounds like a great breakfast.

  • Sarah Bailey
    February 5, 2018

    I have to admit I do love granola – it is such a good way to start the morning, but I have never thought about putting my own together. I am definitely going to have to give this a try!

  • valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    This would be perfect for my brother. He loves granola and almost always has some with him in the car, at work and at home.

  • Emily
    February 5, 2018

    This seems like a great granola recipe! My kids like to put granola on their yogurt and it is also a quick and simple snack to grab. I like that it it healthy but still fills them up !

  • Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh
    February 5, 2018

    I love making homemade granola. It’s one of those snacks that are always better when made at home.

  • Angelic Sinova
    February 5, 2018

    My friend is always saying that there’s nothing like homemade granola (hers really is the best) but I’ve yet to make some for myself yet. Maybe I’ll finally try it out this weekend!

  • Terri Steffes
    February 5, 2018

    I think this sounds so good. I love granola. Are other granolas made with animal products? I can’t wait to give this a try.

  • Farida
    February 5, 2018

    This is something I am willing to try because buying granola in the grocery is a bit expensive. Similarly, adding fiber to one’s food will definitely make us healthier beings!

  • Alison Rost
    February 5, 2018

    It’s a must try especially since it’s granola and you can basically put it on everything, smoothie bowls, overnight oats, or as a snack on its own. I love how easy it is to put together!

  • Jeanette
    February 5, 2018

    I love granola anyway you can give it to me. This looks absolutely amazing and I will definitely try it.

    February 5, 2018

    I eat granola almost every morning. It goes so good in my yogurt. I can’t wait to try yours.
