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? .

Kids Fitness Can Be Fun

It’s no secret that we are focusing on changing our lifestyle.  We are eating better, trying to exercising more and making our health a top priority.  Not just my husband and I, but our kids as well. I’m hoping that if we start this change in lifestyle now, they will carry it with them as they grow up. I want to make sure that we focused on our kids fitness level, making it fun and exciting for them.

My girls have been dancers for years so when they suddenly stopped dancing last year, we found that they would come home from school and spend 90% of their time either watching television or on their phones or tablets.  I knew we needed to change their lifestyle quickly while introducing something that will be just as fun and something they wouldn’t get tired of quickly.

And almost like our prayers had been answered, I was contacted by Garmin who wanted the girls to try their vívofit jr. 2 .  It’s exactly what they needed!

Love at First Sight.

The girls chose their favorite design and when they arrived, they couldn’t rip the package open fast enough.  They didn’t even give me a chance to connect them to the app before they were running around the house and trying to get the highest number of steps. It was like an instant competition.

It was the first time, in a long time, that I actually couldn’t get them to sit down.  They instantly wanted to go outside. They wanted to walk around the neighborhood. They wanted to exercise.  And every few minutes, they would compare numbers.  It was mind blowing.

We got them set up on the app fairly quickly.  It was an extremely easy process!  Parents are able to use the free mobile app to manage their vívofit jr. 2 activity tracker(s). From the app, I was able to add profiles for all three girls to keep track of their steps, sleep, daily activities and set chores.  Once they complete their goals, or tasks, they are rewarded with in-app coins which the girls can redeem for rewards at a later date.

While I love that they are using their new vívofit jr. 2 to get fit, I also love that we can assign chores and schedule alerts from the app. These can be set up to recur weekly or even daily — perfect for children who need reminders.  If your kids are anything like mine, then you will love the alerts you can set, to remind them to finish their homework, brush their teeth and more. It’s all in this one really cool looking band!

Now that the girls have had their vívofit jr. 2 for a few weeks I can tell you that they have not gotten tired of them yet! And when you are a 5, 8 or 12 year old girl, that’s some sort of miracle… at least in my house.  They are still competing daily, jumping off of the bus from school to compare numbers.  They run in to tell me when they have achieved a new goal and how long they have until they achieve the next.  Iyla wears hers everywhere, including to sleep and even in the bath (they are totally swim-friendly).

If you have kids in your household that love competition, love rewards or just love a challenge, you need to check out the vívofit jr. 2. They are really reasonably priced and the perfect tool for a more healthy lifestyle!

    Such a great way to get kids excited about being active! My mom has a Garmin device and she loves it. It keeps her moving on those tough days.

    How cute are those kid fitness trackers? Such a great idea.

    Those really are some cool looking bands. What a fun way to get kids started on a fitness routine that could last a lifetime.

    Fitness can be fun and for me it has to be. I love playing tennis and other sports to work out rather than running. It’s so much fun!

    Garmin makes a kid version? Awesome! My son will be getting one to encourage him to stay active.

    Those are super cute devices for kids! My kids need some motivation when it comes to getting active. It is so easy for them to come home and spend hours laying around the house.

  • Rose Ann SAles

    Inspiring! I think it’s a good idea to start teaching kids how to be physically active, and its a great way to promote it because its an app and I think they’ll be very interested.

    This is such a great idea for kiddos. Fun and interactive and because it is an app it might actually make them want to be more active. So cool!

  • Jenn @ EngineerMommy

    My daughter notices that I have an activity tracker so I think she would love one of her own. I have to look into this product for sure.

    Way a wonderful way to promote physical activity in kids! The designs are awesome and I appreciate that the battery never has to be recharged.

  • Jennifer Van Huss

    That sounds like a great device. My kids are very similar. They are so attracted to technology and they can get lost in it for hours. This is a great way to allow them to have their electronics and exercise too!

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    I love this so much! The biggest roadblock to getting kids to stay active is how boring it can be for them. This is a great idea.

  • Roch

    Such great designs! This can encourage more kids to track their fitness. It’s also a plus that it can be used while swimming, so other water sports and activities can be monitored as well.
