As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years. 
You don’t have to “live with it”.

In just about a month or so, we will start to look for our dream home. #ad I’m excited at the opportunities and better rates we can get because of the bump in my credit score.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

My girls are snackers. When they get home from school, they want to be able to grab a quick snack to take with them on the way to after-school activities, or to enjoy while they do their homework. #ad Peanut Butter is a huge hit in our home, but it can get messy, so when I found out about Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, I couldn't wait to grab some. Instead of making a huge mess (and forgetting to close the lid) with a regular container of peanut butter, the girls can grab one packet and easily add it to just about anything. Some of our favorites are bananas, apples, pretzels, celery or crackers. They have fun creating new combinations and I love that they come in convenient 1.15oz squeezable packets. So much less mess! They are also perfect for their lunchboxes. The peanut butter is so creamy and delicious! BTW, they are naturally gluten-free! @windstonefarms peanut butter packets are now available at your local @walmart. Make sure to pick some up, and check out our stories for a special offer from Ibotta! What will you put #WindstoneFarmsPB on?

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger, the first thing they always ask me is what a typical day looks like. #sponsored My answer usually includes one or more of the following words: crazy, busy, hectic, long and almost always includes either my laptop or my phone, in my face. By the end of the day, my eyeballs are exhausted and I can’t wait to get to sleep (as soon as I check my phone one last time). So at the risk of sounding vague and having people believe that I am just playing around on social media all day long, I thought it would be fun to show you what a day in the life of this super mom blogger is like…. Summer edition (because when the girls are in school, it’s a lot more hectic) as well as how I help my eyes filter blue light, thanks to @quantumnatural.

AD: Back-to-school time is a favorite in our house. I'm excited to get back to the daily peace and quiet, and the girls are excited to get back to their friends! While our excitement lies in very different places, one thing we can always agree on is that it's super fun to shop for back-to-school supplies. Especially when we can do it from the comfort of our own home! After going to multiple stores last year and not being able to find a school approved backpack for Lucia, this year, we made the smart move and got it (and her wireless headphones) on @eBay. They offer a money back gurantee, FREE shipping, save your gas ⛽️ and time ⏰ and do your back-to-school shopping on eBay this year! #eBayBackToSchool #HappeningOnEBay #eBay https://lnk2.io/wytbcWl

Putting Together the Perfect Holiday Care Package for Young Adults

The holidays are my favorite time of the year. I love the decorations and the scent of fresh Christmas trees. Since I’ve become a Mom, I’ve also become a huge fan of giving gifts. Every year, I sit down and come up with the perfect gift for each person on our list. I purchase them, wrap them and count the days until I can give it to them.  While I rarely have an issue coming up with the gift ideas, this year it became just a bit more challenging when I realized that I’m shopping for a young adult, our niece who started her first year of college a few months ago. I remember what I loved as a young adult, but let’s face it, it’s not the 90’s and I have no idea what’s considered cool anymore (though you’ll never hear me admitting that to my kids). This year we’ve decided to focus less on material things that take up space and instead on giving things we actually need. So, in this fashion, I’ve come up with the perfect holiday care package for young adults.

In addition to getting the perfect gift, it’s important to make sure that these gifts are within our budget, so I shop around and search for deals and coupons! For this care package, I knew that I would be including items that are daily necessities, so instead of buying one, I purchased what I could at our local Sam’s Club.  I was pleased to find $2.00 off Crest toothpaste, something we always use in our house since Crest is the best option for our family. The $2.00 off offer runs now through 12/24/18. You can find all of the deals here.

Did you know that Crest Pro-Health toothpaste is the only toothpaste accepted by the American Dental Association to treat all seven attributes:

  • Plaque
  • Gingivitis
  • Cavities
  • Sensitivity
  • Tartar
  • Whitening
  • Freshens Breath

Crest Pro-Health helps you advance to healthier gums and stronger teeth with benefits that help protect against areas dentists check most. For more information on Crest, visit crest.com. And make sure to like Crest on Facebook and Instagram or follow @crest on Twitter to receive updates and learn more about oral health.

Next, we made a list of things she would need while away at college. In addition to the Crest Pro-Health toothpaste, we included some fuzzy socks (for the colder nights), a nail manicure kit, lip balm, a bath bomb, face masks, a sequin makeup bag, shampoo, dry shampoo (for those crazy college mornings when there just isn’t enough time to shower), a back massager and a shower towel. Once we had the necessities, I picked up a gift card (so she could buy herself a little something) and threw in a festive candy cane.

I’d have to say that this is a care package I would have loved to receive when I was in college and I’m sure she will love it too!

What types of things would you add to our holiday care package for young adults? Comment below and let us know!

#ad Gift giving just got a little more difficult now that we have a young adult to shop for. So, I've come up with the perfect holiday care package for young adults. @crest @samsclub #CrestSmiles

    December 18, 2018

    What a fun idea! Pre-teens and teens can be so tough to shop for, and this is a wonderful way to show that you care. I like this idea and will be making some of my own.

  • Sarah Bailey

    This is such a lovely idea of a care package for a young person. Especially for someone who perhaps doesn’t have much, I know there are times in my life when it would have brightened my day.

  • Tara Pittman

    My teen loves getting care packs at the academy. He has limited space and restrictions on food so he sends me the list and I go online and order the items.

  • Alvern @ Success Unscrambled
    December 18, 2018

    This is such a great idea to look after the young people in our lives. What I would’ve done to make it more unique is look for a tube of toothpaste that was more trendy to take the edge off things.

  • Sheila Rhodes
    December 18, 2018

    What a thoughtful idea! A $5.00 gift card to Starbucks would have been great too! I love Crest toothpaste. It has kept my teeth healthy and shining for years!

  • Jenn@Engineermommy
    December 18, 2018

    I love the idea of a care package. It’s definitely such a cute way to let someone know you care. Toothpaste is definitely something you know everyone can use.

  • Tasheena

    Thanks for the reminder! I have to make sure that I send my daughter back to college with Crest after the holidays.

  • Tiffany

    December 18, 2018

    It seems like a great idea, however, if I were a teen and got a package full of toothpaste – LOL – I would have felt JIPPED – hahahahahha! But oral health is insanely important! 😉

    • Heather Castillo
      December 18, 2018

      Luckily it’s not “full” of toothpaste. It has a bunch of other fun stuff.

  • Stacie

    This is such a sweet idea. I think it’s nice to send a little package like this to let that special adult-ish person(s) in your life know how much you care.

    Personal hygiene is always a welcome gift for young adults and toothpaste is always welcomed in the package. Food goes a long way and gift cards are always welcomed.
