This girl lost another tooth last week. I’ve been waiting for this toothless smile since she knocked her other one out last year. Unfortunately, it’s not going to last long because her adult tooth is already growing in 😭. (Zoom in to see) Yesterday I noticed both of her front-bottom teeth are peeking out behind her baby teeth too. Does anyone know how to slow down time. A button? A phone call? Maybe a time machine? My baby isn’t a baby anymore. Cue the tears. Have you celebrated any milestones with your kids recently?

This girl lost another tooth...

I don’t get bouquets of flowers for no reason…. But I do appreciate the flowers that grow by our mailbox, like this one. And it made me realize something this morning.  I’m over it. 
I’m over comparing my life to other people’s lives on social media.
My house might not be as fancy. 
My wardrobe is not as expensive. 
I don't apply makeup as well or even at all most days.
I don’t have beautiful, long flowing hair.
I don’t drive a car that’s worth bragging about. 
We don’t go on lavish trips around the world. 
I don’t carry loads of money in designer handbags. 
Does that make me less of a person? 
Does that make me less of an influencer? 
No. It makes me a regular 40-something Mom who has chosen to open up and share our lives on social media.  It makes me someone who has built this hobby of photography and writing into a business that has solely supported my family for a year and a half. 
I’m proud of that. 
I’m proud that I’m not a follower.
I’m proud that I have worked hard for what I’ve achieved.
I’m proud of influencers like me who are unapologetically themselves.  What are you proud of? .

It was just after Iyla's third birthday. She seemed to be on track, at least according to the pediatrician's checklist. She could follow instructions, name most familiar things, knew her first name, spoke in sentences and could carry a conversation, though she was hard to understand most of the time. We enrolled her in preschool that year and she was a little social butterfly. But as that school year went on, her teachers started to notice that she was struggling to get her words out. Most people that know Iyla today, have no idea that she was in speech therapy classes for two years. They have no idea that I fought it for almost 6 months and that I felt a tremendous guilt about it, because I thought it was my fault that she was stuttering as badly as she was. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the mistakes I made, in hopes that if you are ever in this situation, you take advantage of early intervention. .

There are two types of kids. 1) The kid who wants to eat the same thing every single day of the week, sometimes more than one time per day and 2) The kid who loves something one day and then hates it the next. #ad Which type of kid do you have?

#AD Our girls love nature, so this weekend, we headed to a local nature preserve for a little animal watching, walking and family time. We always pack the essentials when we're heading out in this Florida heat, including snacks, sunblock and @smartwater, because we know how important it is to stay hydrated. We love smartwater® because it's purified water made using vapor distillation, similar to the way water is purified in nature. It's available in 700mL and 1L bottles.

The girls have been back to school for almost a month already. Can you believe it? #sponsored They love their teachers, are happy to see their friends again after a long summer vacation and are looking forward to a year packed with education, fun and new experiences. While they're at school, Super Dad and I are working hard to make sure they have everything they need. At the top of that list, is a healthy and yummy lunch. When you have three girls with very different tastes, it's important to make sure they are getting what they like, but more importantly, what they need. Our latest creation?

Almost F O U R T E E N. Where did the time go? I blinked and she’s this beautiful, little lady. She’s so smart, so talented and although she has her teenage girl moments, she is the best first born I could have ever asked for. Less than 2 weeks until she’s officially old enough to get a job. 😳 Where did the time go? .

In our house, we can’t start our day off without a good cup of coffee, maybe two or three, depending on how good or bad our previous nights sleep was. We’ve tried just about every flavored creamer there is on the market and realized that when we finally found one that we really loved, we were spending a lot of money on something we could easily make ourselves. With just a few ingredient changes, you can make a number of different flavored homemade creamers. You’ll be surprised how easy it really is!

Homemade French Vanilla Creamer

A beautifully creamy and delicious flavored creamer that can be used as is, or as a base for a variety of creamer flavors.
Prep Time3 mins
Course: Drinks
Author: Heather
Cost: $2

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups milk any variety (almond, whole, fat free, etc.)
  • 14 oz condensed milk sweetened
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Mix milks together in a bowl or container.
  • Add vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Store in a bottle. Make sure to write milk expiration date on the containter for reference!

Our easy to follow recipe for homemade creamer in 10 flavors, including french vanilla, almond joy, pumpkin spice, and peppermint mocha.

The idea is to get creative and create your own homemade creamer flavors! The possibilities are endless. You can also adjust the ingredients based on how sweet you like your coffee. Love it sweet? Use a sweetened condensed milk and sweetened almond milk. Prefer it less sweet, get the unsweetened condensed milk and an unflavored milk.  I’ve actually found that I no longer need to add sugar to my coffee, if my creamer is already sweet!

homemade creamers in glass bottles

Here are some of our favorites:

Chocolate Almond:

Our easy to follow recipe for homemade pumpkin spice coffee creamer. We also share 9 other must try flavors.

And some of our favorite holiday and fall flavors:

Pumpkin Spice:
1 3/4 cups milk of your choice (almond milk, whole, fat free, etc.)
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
3 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract

Peppermint Mocha:
1 3/4 cups milk of your choice (almond milk, whole, fat free, etc.)
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 tbsp chocolate syrup or cocoa powder
1 tsp peppermint extract

Eggnog:
1 3/4 cups milk of your choice (almond milk, whole, fat free, etc.)
14 oz condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp rum extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Once you create your homemade creamers, they can be stored in glass bottles (we actually reuse bottles from drinks we pick up at the grocery store when we’re in a hurry). Although we go through creamer pretty quickly in our house, I recommend using a marker to write the expiration date on each bottle (I use the date from the milk we use). Also, if you want to get fancy, you can get this adorable label maker on Amazon for less than $10 and create your own labels for each flavor!

Which flavor is your favorite?
