So your kid spends all of their time watching other kids open toys, play video games or walk around aimlessly, talking about nothing? Sounds exactly like this girl. Every time I turn around, she is watching someone else’s family on YouTube. This year, I asked Falynn to create a gift guide with what she wants most for the holidays. I was NOT surprised that her list was full of things that she's seen or heard about on her favorite YouTube channels. She even used the word "merch" which totally cracked me up! MERCH! What 7 year old says that?! She has also asked that I figure out how to create a toy line with her face on the box. Those videos have her convinced that it's the natural next step for us and she's confused as to why it's taking me so long to get it done. 😒 Those YouTube families make it look so easy, don't they?! Anyway, instead of sharing a holiday gift guide for 7 year olds, I figured I would share the perfect holiday gift guide for all of you parents out there who have kids that are just as obsessed with @ryansworld, @tictactoyfamily,  @funnelvisionfam and all those other fun youtubers who are living our dream lives right now. Head to the blog and check it out! .

Last month I wrote a “favorite things” blog post on a whim. It was fun to share the book I was reading, my favorite movie, podcast and tv series and other things I am currently loving. The response was great and I got so many messages from readers asking for more. So, I’m excited to announce the Super Mom’s Favorite Things will become a monthly series! AND volume 2 is up today. I even included our new favorite snack from @artisantropic! Sooooo yummy! Click on the link in my bio or swipe up in stories and let me know what categories you’d like to see me add in January!

This week has been hard. Sunday would have been my Nana’s 95th birthday and it was also the first anniversary of the passing of one of my best friends, Brooke. 
This was the photo that hung in my Nana’s living room. She would show it to everyone that visited her.  She told me she would stare at it and smile every single day. She was so proud of all of her great-granddaughters. 🥰 I’m so grateful that my girls were able to know what an amazing woman she really was, even if she was taken from us a little earlier than expected. So while I try to reflect on the good times, I’m still trying to accept that she and my friend are both gone, too soon. It’s been a hard week, but I will get past this and keep living my best life... that’s what they would have wanted. How do you deal with grief?

Happy National Cookie Day! Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor to celebrate today, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good. Head to the blog for the full recipe (link is in my bio or swipe up in stories). What kind of cookies are you celebrating with today?

I say it all the time. We may have rescued Elle from @bigdogranchrescue, but we needed her just as much, if not more, than she needed us. I can’t imagine our family without her. Does your family have any pets? I’d love to hear about them and how they changed your life. .

We visited @treasurecoastsq last week to remind our girls that the true spirit of the holidays is about giving. #sponsored With their lists in hand, they went to their favorite stores (Claires, Spencer Gifts, Forever 21 and Justice), picking out the perfect gifts for their favorite people.They did such a great job of choosing each present without going over their budget and the only thing they got for themselves was hot cocoa and a snack from Starbucks! On our way out, we took some pictures by the Santa Photo Experience, located in the Old Navy Court and someone special snuck up behind them to get in the pictures. They had no idea that Santa was standing just a couple of feet behind them!  There’s something about the holiday decor at Treasure Coast Square that always gets us in the Christmas spirit. Our next trip will be to drop off some donated toys at The Salvation Army Angel Tree table! What is your favorite part of the holidays? #holidayatsimon

Where are my Frozen fans at?! #ad My girls have been fans since day 1, so it’s not a shock that most of their Christmas wish list is Frozen themed. When we found this @HuffyBicycles Disney Frozen EZ Build Bike at Walmart, Falynn couldn’t "let it go" and she received a Christmas gift early! This bike has so many fun features! It even plays Frozen sounds! It’s available in 12” or 16” and features Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It’s perfect for young riders! Head to Walmart to purchase a Huffy bike for your little one this holiday season. They make the best big reveal gifts for the holidays and you’re sure to get tons of nice "warm hugs!" This bike is ON SALE now -- link in bio and stories to shop.  #GiveTheRide #LiveTheRide #AvailableAtWalmart .

Traditions are a big part of our holiday season. We are so grateful to be working with @minted this year on one of the traditions I love the most, our annual holiday cards. Our daily lives can be hectic, but it’s a great way for us to stay connected to our family and friends. Minted made the process incredibly easy. They have a card template for everyone and they are completely customizable (greeting, colors, fonts, and more). And if you need help, Minted offers free card styling service. Just Text Your Photo to 22737 and a Minted stylist will text you back five holiday card designs, selected especially for and styled with your photo—for FREE. Import your address book and Minted will address the envelopes for you! Do you know how much time that saved me?! They even have the option to create your own stamps to match your cards! I can’t believe how easy it was and more importantly, how beautiful they turned out. We can’t wait to send them off to family and friends this week! Now through 11/29, Minted is offering 20% off all orders $150+ or 15% off all orders, plus free shipping with code BF2019. Have you ordered your holiday cards yet?

Falynn has always been our little fashionista #ad But now that she's older, she's discovering her own sense of style. She prefers shorts to dresses, hats to headbands and would call her own style "swagalicious," if you ask her. She was super excited to receive this new #BMR1959 Ken doll! She must have spent 15 minutes describing each piece of his outfit. She really got a kick out of their matching hairdos! I love watching her enjoy @Barbie as much as I did as a kid! BMR1959™ is perfect for the holidays! These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style. Is #Barbie a staple in your home as well? .

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
    December 18, 2018

    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

    I would love all of these gifts! Perfect combo of items, thanks for sharing!

  • Tiffany
    December 18, 2018

    I am always looking for ideas for my brothers in law… they are early 20’s and need nothing. A box of essentials would be a fun gift – they could really use it all!

  • GiGi Eats
    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
    December 18, 2018

    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.
