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!

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?

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.
  2. The kid who loves something one day and then hates it the next.

Which type of kid do you have? Or, are your kids like mine and bounce back and forth between the two? Either way, there is a way to make lunches more fun for kids. I’ll let you in on a little secret… creating fun lunches is more fun for us too! This week, we created our first character, Inspector Caper Eyes.

How to Make Inspector Caper Eyes

What You’ll Need:

Cheese sticks
Salami, sliced thin
Capers
Sliced olives w/ pimentos
Pretzel Sticks

Step 1: Unwrap your cheese stick

Step 2: Take a slice of salami and wrap it around the cheese stick. Fresh, thin salami slices will easily cling to itself and stay closed.

Step 3: Add two capers for his eyes, a pimento mouth and a sliced olive for his hat.

Step 4: Break two pretzel sticks in half and create his arms and legs.

Inspector Caper Eyes can be placed in a lunchbox on his own, or with a twin, if your little one has a bigger appetite.

Don’t forget to include some snacks. We usually include blue corn tortilla chips or veggies on the side. And lastly, their lunch isn’t complete without a juice box! We love Juicy Juice! Especially their three new better-for-you options, which are packed with functional benefits with juicy flavor that parents can feel great about serving to their kids.

Juicy Juice Juicy Waters is the new flavored-water beverage that my kids LOVE! It’s made with filtered water and a splash of flavor and has no sugar or sweeteners and is available in Fruit Punch, Orange and Strawberry Watermelon.

Juicy Juice Fruitfuls Organic features 45% less sugar than the leading juice and packs a half cup of fruit in each 8 ounce serving with a fruity flavor kids love. Available in the original single-serve juice box and a new multi-serve 59oz bottle in Apple, Fruit Punch and Grape, perfect for meals in the house!

We can’t wait to create our next character! Any ideas? Don’t forget to check out our other family-friendly favorite recipes.

There is a way to make lunches more fun for kids. I'll let you in on a little secret... creating fun lunches is more fun for us parents too! Here’s how to make Inspector Caper Eyes. Here’s how to make him! #ad
