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! So take a minute, click on the #linkinbio or swipe up in stories and enter to win! What would you do with the extra money?

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?

Our oldest daughter, Lucia, just turned 13. Cue the ugly crying face. I swear I just gave birth to her yesterday but somehow she is this suddenly this beautiful young lady, an inch taller than I am with feet that are two sizes bigger than mine. The days of stuffed animals and cute little tutu dresses are over. While it used to be so easy to buy her birthday gifts, this year I was racking my tired Mom brain trying to figure out what to buy her. And then I got an email from Happy Cards.

We were walking through Target one day last month and I saw these cards in the gift card section. Instead of the gift cards that are good for just one store, Happy Cards can be used in a variety of stores, depending on the one you purchase.  Choose from: Happy Dining, Happy Kid, Happy Teen, Happy Lady, Happy Guy, Happy Bites, Happy Eats, Happy Local Eats, Happy Beauty, Happy Bride, Happy Student or Happy Her. Happy Cards combine many great brands into one perfect gift for any one and any occasion and can be purchased in a grocery store near you. When I saw Happy Teen, that missing lightbulb suddenly lit up just above my head. It was THE perfect gift for Lucia!

Happy Cards – Happy Teen

Happy Teen features many of my daughter’s favorite places. And when Happy Cards presented her with her very own Happy Teen Card, she couldn’t wait to get to spending! We turned this incredibly generous gift into a day of shopping for me and my oldest baby… Yes, she’ll always be my baby whether she’s taller than me or not.

This wonderful opportunity gave us the chance to spend time together while giving her the ability to choose her own gifts which, as you may imagine, is very important at this age. Of course, she started off at Barnes & Noble. Lucia has never met a book she doesn’t love. She chose 3 that she’s had her eye on and was excited to pay with her own card instead of having to ask me for the money.

Next, it was over to the mall. She was disappointed to find out that Sephora wouldn’t accept the Happy Card because it was inside of JCPenney and not a stand alone store. The JCPenney Sephora’s operate differently than stand-alone stores, in general, from couponing, to birthday rewards, to gift card redemption. Luckily American Eagle was just around the corner and she was able to find so many cute, age-appropriate items on the clearance rack (that’s my girl!).

I found that since it was “her money”, she was so much more responsible with what she purchased, checking her balance before deciding what she would and wouldn’t take home.  It was definitely a proud Mama moment for me and since then, I’ve noticed that when we go somewhere, she is more aware of prices (even if I’m paying). Who knew that this little shopping spree would wind up being educational?!

Lucia did so well that she actually still has money left on the card and wanted to save it for next weekend so we can head over to the Nike Outlet. She wound up with a pair of shorts, 2 shirts, a romper, a dress and 3 books. Not a bad gift right? I can’t remember the last time I got such a great gift for my birthday!
