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. .

There are many special memories I can share about my Nana. She was funny, brutally honest and had the most beautiful smile. And while I can go on and on about her to anyone that will listen (or read), I love to cook her favorite dishes so that my family remembers her through her recipes. Today, since it’s Yom Kippur, I want to share one of my favorite recipes, Nana’s Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Homemade Gravy. Head to the blog for the full recipe. .

AD: Our schedules just got a little bit busier. The girls have started taking music lessons! Falynn and Lucia are learning to play the ukele and Iyla is learning to play the piano. While they are loving every second of it, they get hungry. I always have to make sure they grab some water and a snack. Or in Falynn's case, lots of snacks. This week, she found my stash of @JackLinksJerky in the pantry and decided one wasn't enough. Good thing Jack Link’s Beef Bars now comes in a multi-pack! You can find them in the nutritional bar aisle at @Target. The Bars are made with 100% Beef. 8 grams of protein, 70 calories, and gluten free. I'd say she made a great choice! Have you tried the new Jack Link's beef bars? .

Today is National Taco Day, so we've decided to share one of our favorite taco recipes. Technically, it's not a taco, it's a tostada, but it's just as delicious whether it's in a folded tortilla shell or on top of a flat corn tostada. Lime and cilantro shrimp with a zesty sauce will wow your tastebuds and will be a huge hit with your family! I’m sharing the full recipe on the blog today. Go print it and make it for dinner. Your tastebuds will thank you. .

Raising three girls is tough. They each have their own very different personalities. They don’t get along all the time. They seem to be in competition constantly. I can’t give a compliment to one without the other thinking that my compliment to one, meant I was insulting the other. And while I’m working on teaching them how to handle those situations, I can’t help but think that our female minds are wired that way and it saddens me. We are stronger when we support and encourage one another. So to all those girls out there who are busting their butts to make it, in a world where people are just waiting for you to make one wrong move so they can discard you, keep your head up. Find the people that will have your back no matter what. Surround yourself with others that care more about facts than gossip. And when you do find them, hold onto them, cherish them and have their back in every situation. Together, we can change the world. That’s the power when girls support girls. Have you found your tribe? Tag them and let them know what they mean to you. .

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

    I got married before I went to college, so I never got a care package. I love this idea and I have to think of who I could send one to. My niece goes to college next year and that will be my target then.

    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.

    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.

    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.
