Having lived with anxiety for over 13 years, speaking publicly about it for almost 3 and having finally been officially diagnosed with an anxiety disorder recently, I've heard just about everything. While my family and friends mean well, so many of them have a knack for saying the wrong thing when my anxiety is at its highest. It occurred to me that they aren't trying to be hurtful, they are really just trying to help me to get over that "moment". So instead of getting upset, I figured I'd share the 5 things you should never say to someone with anxiety, on the blog today. Can you think of any I’ve missed? .

#ad Ladies, how much do you really know about your #periodhealth? Even in my 40’s, I can honestly say that I am still learning about my body and what it should and shouldn’t do every month. And the truth is, most women don’t know what is normal vs. abnormal when it comes to their #period. In a recent survey, 85% of women agreed that heavy periods were “normal” - and 69% agreed that pain is “something to be expected”. FACT: Heavy periods do not have to be your normal – know your options: http://www.WeHateHeavyPeriods.com #WeHateHeavyPeriods #linkinbio @changethecycle #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #healthandwellness #empowerwomen #healthfirst #healyourself #healthytips #empoweryourself #periodproblems #womenhealth #nourishyourself #periodpositive #empowerothers #workingmomlife #healthjourney #womenpower #empoweringwomen #empoweredwomen #epcotflowerandgardenfestival #epcotcenter #butterflys

We partnered with @disneybooks to celebrate the release of a brand new Pigeon book: The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! by Mo Willems. Since Mo Willems is Falynn’s favorite author of all time, we had to throw a pigeon themed party, featuring Pigeon’s favorite, HOT DOGS!  And we couldn’t stop there. Falynn thought it would be fun to create the ultimate kids hot dog bar, with lots of unusual, but kid-friendly toppings. Check out the blog today to hear all about it and learn how you can throw your own Pigeon-themed party for your little Mo Willems fan! #ReadMoWillems #disneyblogger #disneylifestyle #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer19 #pigeon #partytheme #hotdogs #kidspartyideas #childrensparties #kidsparty #partykids

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger and have been solely supporting our family since April of 2018, they have so many questions. But the question I get asked the most is, 🍃 “How do I get started as a blogger?” My answer always starts the same. I want you to ask yourself one simple question. 🌸 Do I have the time to dedicate to a blog?  I’m not talking about an hour every other Saturday, or when it’s convenient. I’m talking about full-time job kinda time. If not, you’re probably not ready. Starting and maintaining a blog is A LOT of work and it requires a lot of dedication. Like everything in this world, if you can commit the time, and you put your all into it, you too can support your family this way. If I can do it, anyone can. 
Today on the blog, I’m sharing the first 5 steps you need to take to start making money as a blogger. It’s the beginning of a series of posts I’ll be sharing, that will hopefully help more people to get to where they want to be.

Summer is flying by, isn’t it? Not only have the girls been keeping up with their Summer reading, but they had read all of the books I got them by the end of June! Luckily, we partnered with @disneybooks and were able to get Serafina and the Seven Stars prior to its release today! Lucia had been anticipating the new book from the Serafina series and couldn’t wait to start reading it, and now you can grab a copy too! The #SerafinaSeries by Robert Beatty has been one of her favorites. In the new book, our heroine must confront deceptively dark and terrifying forces. Of all the books, this one is probably her favorite! You can get Serafina and the Seven Stars in stores now! You can also click on the link in our bio, where we’ve added the link to the new book, on Amazon.

No, your IG isn’t broken. Every time I talk openly about my anxiety disorder, I get the same response, from so many people.
“You're not broken.”
They're right, I'm not broken. It's not that I can't be fixed. It's not that I can't overcome my anxiety. It's not that there is no hope and I should just be thrown out like the pieces of my favorite porcelain mug that I accidentally dropped. I can be put back together and there's a great possibility that I will one day return to my former, non-anxiety-filled self.
Read more on today’s blog... I'm not broken, but I'm definitely glitching. (Link in bio or swipe up in stories)

Falynn is my hero. On a daily basis, she faces her fears head on. She lets us know that she’s a little afraid but always does it anyway, with very little to no push from me or Super Dad. You can often find her jumping up and down and yelling “I did it!” after she’s conquered another one. At 6 years old, she is my inspiration. Whenever anxiety gets the best of me, I need to replay every one of those moments where she didn’t let her fear and the unknown stop her from living her best life. .

Halloween Traditions You Should Consider

Every year, our family looks forward to Halloween. It’s one of those holidays that can be fun for all ages and we love everything about it! While we try to fit in as much as we can during the month of October, we have specific Halloween traditions that we never miss.  From the pumpkin patch to counting their candy at the end of the night, my kids look forward to Halloween every year.

Visit a Local Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin patches are a great opportunity to get out into your community, take some pictures, meet some neighbors and pick out the perfect pumpkin for your family. In our case, we always get one for each of our daughters. From petting zoos to hay rides, pumpkin patches should definitely be on your to-do list every October!

Fun Fact: Not all pumpkins are orange. Some pumpkins are white, others are red, blue, or yellow. Traditional orange pumpkins change color from green to orange for much the same reason that leaves do. When they lose their chlorophyll, the “underlying” orange color is revealed. The orange color is caused by carotenoids, a healthy source of vitamin A and the same thing that makes carrots orange.

Create Spooky Treats

While it’s fun to buy the giant bags of candy, there is nothing better than creating fun, spooky treats for Halloween. A must have for our family are caramel apples. This year, we found some fun decorative fingers to add to them, to give them a little something extra. You can also add eyeballs to take it up a notch. For our youngest, the creepier, the better.

Fun Fact: The average parent eats one-fourth of their children’s Halloween candy.

Decorate Pumpkins

Whether you carve, use stickers or paint your pumpkins, it’s so much fun allowing your kids to decorate their own pumpkin. Let them use their imagination to create and you’ll be surprised what they can come up with.

Fun Fact: The heaviest pumpkin in the United States was grown in 2014 by a man named Beni Meier and it weighed 2,323 pounds.

Going Trick or Treating

While my kids love everything about Halloween, the thing they look forward to the most is trick or treating. Choosing their costume is usually an ordeal, but once that’s done, they can’t wait to get out there and get as much candy as they can. At the end of the night, they dump their goodies onto the floor and separate it into 4 piles (one for each of them and one for Mom and Dad).

Fun Fact: Americans spend about $3.8 billion on Halloween candy every year.

Making Sure Our Teeth Stay Healthy

Once all of the candy and treats are gone, it’s time to make sure we are taking care of our teeth. Halloween wouldn’t be the same without Halloween candy! Crest proves this point by bringing a group of school-aged children together for a focus group where they are asked to test out some new healthy alternatives for the season and it’s hilarious. I’m sure my kids would have acted the same way. Check out the video here.

Fun Fact: Only 48% of adults enforce a stricter teeth brushing/flossing routine on Halloween for themselves ;however 70% of parents enforce stricter teeth brushing/routines on Halloween for their children.

    We normally have such tradition and also having a Halloween party with family and relatives. It’s really important to make sure that we take care of our teeth especially kids because there are so many sweets coming from the treats.

    Pumpkin patches are the best! So much fun to do, especially around Halloween. This is a great list, and thanks for sharing about oral care. Also so important!

    It would be fun to give the kids new toothpaste and brushes for halloween. It would probably inspire them to go brush!

    I will admit, I have been tempted to give out toothpaste and toothbrushes instead of sweets! I don’t think it would go down well 😀

  • Terri Steffes

    I love these traditions. The only tradition we have now is decorating the house and buying enough candy. We will easily have 400-500 trick or treaters.

    Oral care is so important. I’m always making sure that my girls are brushing and flossing properly. On Halloween, I also have them rinse their mouths after the night of fun before we get home to brush our teeeth. Our dentist recomended it as a way to help prevent cavities

  • Tasheena
    October 29, 2018

    I love the family traditions you’ve suggested. I love going to my local pumpkin patch during this time of year.

    I bet a bunch of parents eat more than 1/4 their kid’s candy. LOL. It is a great time of year for the dentist.

  • Helen Little

    Brilliant traditions! My son is 2 and we’ve just started to visit pumpkin patches. I agree with you on the teeth cleaning though – so many sweets consumed haha.

  • Joanna
    October 29, 2018

    I had no idea that pumpkins could be blue as well. How fun to have a blue pumpkin for Halloween? I’d love to go and get a nice big pumpkin from a farm but the only available option in my city are really tiny supermarket ones.

    • Heather Castillo
      October 29, 2018

      They are painted, though pumpkins do come in different colors.

  • Joan

    Visiting a pumpkin patch sounds like fun, and something I have never done! I also have yet to see a blue pumpkin, pretty neat.

    Halloween is a big deal around here where we live. We don’t do much anymore since it is just the tow of us now and we live so far out in the country. Every year we do a weiner roast which everyone looks forward too.

    October 29, 2018

    These are some great traditions to partake in around Halloween, I would love to make it to a pumpkin patch one year I have to say.

    Trick-or-treating is a must for the kids. We also try to visit a pumpkin patch each year to develop that sense of tradition.
