I love the holidays. Any holiday really. It's a great excuse to pull out our box of craft supplies that we've collected over the years and use our imaginations! And I especially love encouraging our little one’s creativity. We try 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, their school friends or even their favorite teachers! Hopefully you already checked out our Snowman Jars, which were a HUGE hit. Now, we're excited to share our second Christmas craft idea.. these hot cocoa reindeer jars! Everything you need to make hot cocoa, all wrapped up in a festive little jar that’s easy for the kids to make! Click the link in our bio or swipe up in stories for the step-by-step. .

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! So take a minute, click on the #linkinbio or swipe up in stories and enter to win! What would you do with the extra money?

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?

Instagram Announces IGTV and We Can’t Wait!

If You Love It, Share It!

On Wednesday, June 20, 2018, Instagram announced a new in-app experience large enough to compete with YouTube and Snapchat and we couldn’t be more excited about it!  While we are a fan of all social media, Instagram is by far, our favorite!  IGTV is yet another brilliant way to give creators like me, a place where we can express ourselves through different types of media and helps us to reach a larger audience without having to bounce back and forth through many different platforms. Instagram never ceases to amaze me. Bravo!

Here’s a little bit more about IGTV, from Kevin Systrom, Co-Founder & CEO:

IGTV, a new app for watching long-form, vertical video from your favorite Instagram creators. While there’s a stand-alone IGTV app, you’ll also be able to watch from within the Instagram app so the entire community of one billion can use it from the very start.

igtv, ig-tv, instagram, video, instagram video, creator, instagram creators

IGTV is different in a few ways. First, it’s built for how you actually use your phone, so videos are full screen and vertical. Also, unlike on Instagram, videos aren’t limited to one minute. Instead, each video can be up to an hour long.

We’ve made it simple, too. Just like turning on the TV, IGTV starts playing as soon as you open the app. You don’t have to search to start watching content from people you already follow on Instagram and others you might like based on your interests. You can swipe up to discover more — switch between “For You,” “Following,” “Popular” and “Continue Watching.” You can also like, comment and send videos to friends in Direct.

Also like TV, IGTV has channels. But, in IGTV, the creators are the channels. When you follow a creator on Instagram, their IGTV channel will show up for you to watch. Anyone can be a creator — you can upload your own IGTV videos in the app or on the web to start your own channel.

igtv, ig-tv, instagram, video, instagram video, creator, instagram creators

Instagram has always been a place to connect with the people who inspire, educate and entertain you every day. With your help, IGTV begins a new chapter of video on Instagram. We hope it brings you closer to the people and things you love.

What do you think about IGTV? Will you use it? Comment below and let us know your thoughts!

IGTV will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks on Android and iOS. You can learn more by visiting the Instagram Help Center.

    I like that Instagram had added to their features rather than taking away from them. I was worried they would switch IG Stories for IGTV

  • What Corinne Did
    June 25, 2018

    IG TV is such an interesting new feature! It is opening so many possibilities! can’t wait to see what content creators will do with it!

  • Princess Quinn
    June 25, 2018

    Wow, IG is now leveling up their game. For me, it becomes more of Facebook. Social media sites are really powerful. And, this seems to be a great new way to connect to people.

  • Casey
    June 25, 2018

    This is huge stuff from IG. I can see this is going to be a real competitor to YouTube. As ever so easy to do live streaming or videos on your phone, I can see there will be so many people moving away from YouTube to here.

  • Tina Hogan Grant
    June 25, 2018

    There is so much out there, it’s too much to keep up with and monitor. How much social media does one need? I focus on just a couple and make the most of those.

  • Julie
    June 24, 2018

    Slow down technology! I just got the hang of Facebook ? but really, this is awesome and is going to do wonders for marketing!

  • Amy Dong
    June 24, 2018

    Oh, wow, that will be a huge new development for sure. I’ve done vids before, but this new option will definitely up the ante!

  • Ally

    Instagram TV?! I’m honestly surprised I haven’t heard of this, as a millennial I am really out of touch with social media and technology. It definitely sounds interesting.

  • Sayanti
    June 24, 2018

    I am even so excited about IGTV and it is indeed a good option for content creators of Instagram, because now they don’t have to look for other platforms for posting lengthy videos

  • Kristi Ann
    June 24, 2018

    This sounds really cool!! I’m definitely going to check it out!

  • Christine

    Instagram is my favorite social media platform and its getting better and better. I just started my travel account so I am very excited to create videos. Thanks for the post!

  • Lynndee

    Instagram is my favorite too. But I’m not really sure yet if I’ll use IGTV. We’ll see.

  • Julie Hoag
    June 24, 2018

    This is so interesting! I had not heard about this new Instagram app. I will have to check it out. It’s a goal of mine to start doing more video. Thanks for all the info on it!

    This is so cool. I didn’t know much about Instagram video so I appreciate you sharing. I’m trying to share more than just photos.

  • Gen

    Uploaded my first video when I saw the update few days ago because i got curious and it seems fun.

  • Ada

    I’m definitely excited for IGTV. I can’t wait to see what everyone does with it! I also can’t wait to create content for it.

  • Sondra Barker

    InstaTV will for sure change the dynamics of social media

  • Yolanda Williams
    June 23, 2018

    While great in theory I doubt I’d actually watch an hour long video. I don’t watch YouTube videos that are longer than 5 minutes. So this will be interesting to see. But I like the IGTV thing at large

  • Danielle Schaffer
    June 23, 2018

    I am so interested to hear about this! Sounds exciting and also a little weird!

  • Mr. MFC @ Morning Fresh Cent
    June 23, 2018

    I can’t wait for IGTV to arrive. Another option and if anything, it should drive prices down for consumer.

  • Erin Sluka

    Oh wow! I haven’t heard of this yet. This is great

  • Angela Ricardo Bethea

    Wow, this IGTV sounds interesting. Might check this out later, it’s great you get to post videos without limited time.

  • Natalie

    Ok so I just realized reading your post that it is a separate app as well! Need to download it ASAP!

  • Sarah Bailey

    I’m already loving it – I’ve been watching some content from those I follow this morning and I think it is a great concept.

  • Maysz

    This Very Interesting! I don’t see yet my Instagram! Let me this thanks for sharing!

    Very interesting post! And I don’t see yet the IGTv but this is awsome!

  • Marie Kait
    June 22, 2018

    I didn’t even know about this! Amazing. I’ve been thinking about starting to do more videos. I would be much more confident on a platform I’m already familiar with.

  • Ashley
    June 22, 2018

    I’m excited for the new feature. I’ve been wanting longer video capabilities.

  • Jessica Joachim
    June 22, 2018

    I just downloaded the App today and will be setting it up and playing with it soon! I am excited to see how it ends up competing with YouTube and how it can work along side it to compliment it as well.

  • Crystal
    June 22, 2018

    I think this is great! I mean, I’m torn between – OH CRAP something else to do- and WOW! how fun! Haha! I do love that they have vertical video though. It will be interesting watching this one roll out.

  • Cristina pop
    June 22, 2018

    Sounds so much fun! I will have to check it out!

  • GiGi Eats
    June 22, 2018

    Not going to lie, I totally could wait, and I am kinda bummed about this! I don’t like it so far – it just makes IG look way too busy and it’s distracting!

  • Kelly Moyer
    June 22, 2018

    This looks awesome. I will have to check this out.

  • Mallorie Owens
    June 22, 2018

    Not super into it, but I know a lot of people are excited. Trying to stay off my phone lately and not have more things sucking me in!

  • Stacie
    June 22, 2018

    Instagram TV is going to be a game changer! I can’t wait for this update to drop so I can give it a try.

  • Jenni LeBaron
    June 22, 2018

    Interesting. I wonder if this will eventually replace the insta-stories down the road. I’ve yet to jump on the video stories bandwagon yet, but I like to have the option.
