Like most of you, I watched George Floyd fight for his last breath on national TV, by someone whose job it was to protect people. It sickened me.⁣
⁣
I’ve struggled to find the words to express how I was feeling. In all honesty, I was afraid to speak about it in fear that I would say the wrong thing or my thoughts would be misinterpreted.⁣
⁣
But staying silent can be misinterpreted too.⁣
⁣
Yesterday morning I watched an IGTV video by @cut and I knew I couldn’t stay silent any longer.⁣
⁣
I am a white woman. I will NEVER know what it’s like to be a person of color. I will never be pulled over because of the color of my skin. I have never been afraid of the police. And knowing that so many, at a young age are taught to act a certain way around a police officer, in fear that they may be arrested or worse, killed, for absolutely no reason at all, breaks my heart.⁣
⁣
But this isn’t about me or my feelings.⁣
⁣
This is about the senseless killings that continue happening. It’s about the injustice that people of color face. It’s about so many families that have lost loved ones. It’s about all of the beautiful black children and their parents and grandparents and extended family, that are afraid of what could happen to them because of the color of their skin.⁣
⁣
Imagine leaving your home every day and wondering if you’ll ever return. No one should ever have to feel that way.⁣
⁣
It’s time we stopped the silence and did something about it. It’s time we focus on change and how we can do better. I’m sharing ways we can make a change on the blog today and I’ve included the link in my bio. ⁣

Best part about having a teenage daughter? We can enjoy Lifetime Original Movies together! [ad] I'm so excited for this weekend's movie marathon! @LifetimeTV has always been one of my favorites and just like me, this year they are celebrating 30 incredible years (wink, wink)! ⁣
⁣
Lucia and I are ready for a weekend of movies, popcorn and LOTS of commentary. Somehow, even if it's a drama or a thriller, we find ourselves laughing. She definitely shares my crazy sense of humor. ⁣
⁣
Today we are planning on watching Death of a Cheerleader at 11am EST and Flowers in the Attic at 4pm EST and tomorrow, Beaches at 12pm EST. ⁣
⁣
The marathon begins today at 11am EST and ends Sunday night.. so grab your popcorn and tune in with us. Don't forget to check out our stories where we'll be sharing what it's like to watch a movie with us (almost as entertaining as the movies themselves). #LifetimeLoyals  #LifetimeTV #LOM30 ⁣

I don’t know who needs to hear this right now, but this is only temporary. ⁣
⁣
I’ve said it to myself a million times since I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder. And now, during this pandemic, it’s something we all have to focus on. ⁣
⁣
We won’t always be locked in our homes. We won’t always have to wear a mask in public. Our kids won’t always be schooled online. We won’t always be out of work. Because just like anxiety, this pandemic is only temporary. ⁣
⁣
Enjoy your family. Cherish every moment you are being “forced” to spend with them. Your kids are growing up and they won’t always be little. Having them at home with you is just as temporary. ⁣
⁣
Today on the blog, our friend Alison @theanxietyhealer is sharing her personal struggle and how she’s coping with anxiety during a pandemic. She’s also included her favorite affirmations for you. Link is in my bio (or swipe up in stories). ⁣

Today is #nationalbrisketday so obviously I have to share my go-to slow cooker BBQ brisket recipe. It’s probably one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make. It tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen cooking it, though it takes just minutes to prep. Best part is, you can make this recipe with any cut of beef! Serve on a plate with your favorite sides or on a roll for a delicious sandwich. Your family will love it!⁣

Back in January, we visited @legolandflorida for the first time. One of the highlights of that trip, was discovering Granny's Apple Fries. We've been pretty obsessed with them since the first bite and wanted to try to recreate them at home.⁣
⁣
I researched, I googled, I tried two different recipes that I found online that claimed to be Legoland Granny apple fries copycat recipes. And they were both huge failures. ⁣
⁣
After a whole lot of brainstorming and trial and error, we fell back on something that seems to save the day for us on a regular basis... funnel cake batter. ⁣
⁣
We dipped our apple sticks in the batter, fried and tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. OMG... HEAVEN.  Cinnamon sugar apple fries are EVERY 👏🏻 THING 👏🏻 and I’m sharing the recipe today on the blog (click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories). ⁣

Would you dip them with caramel, whipped cream or both?⁣

We partnered with Disney Book Group to celebrate the release of a brand new Pigeon book: The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! by Mo Willems. Since Mo Willems is Falynn’s favorite author of all time, we had to throw a pigeon themed party, featuring Pigeon’s favorite, HOT DOGS!  And we couldn’t stop there. Falynn thought it would be fun to create the ultimate kids hot dog bar, with lots of unusual, but kid-friendly toppings.

Hot Dog Bar Topping Ideas

Relish
Bacon
Chili
Tomatoes
Lettuce
Pretzels
Potato Sticks
Cheese Puffs
Popcorn
Sunflower Seeds (in case Pigeon stopped by)
Cheese
Mustard
Ketchup
BBQ Sauce
Ranch Dressing

The possibilities are really endless. While there may be some toppings on our list that are a little out of the ordinary, those were actually the most popular. The key to success, is to ask your kids what type of toppings they think they might like. Then, of course, take out the non-edible ones, like Falynn’s request for confetti and glitter. Make sure there is a good mix of snack and healthy options. While you can’t guarantee they will choose the healthier options, at least they are given the choice.

Let your kids (and the adults) create their own hot dogs. You’ll be surprised at the combinations they’ll put together and they will find some new toppings that they never thought of putting on their hot dogs! Super Dad chose ketchup, mustard, bacon, relish, potato sticks, sunflower seeds and cheese. He said it was the best hot dog he’d ever had.

How to create the ultimate hot dog bar for kids. Perfect for any party. Guests of all ages will love it!

Our party featured what we like to call, “Pigeon juice” (though it was really just yummy blue punch). We also created little Pigeon-themed goodie boxes, filled with salt water taffy in blue, yellow and green. For dessert, we had cookies (another of Pigeon’s favorites) and some cake, topped with a BIRD-day candle. Did you know Pigeon turned 16 recently? Make sure to check out our tutorial on how to make a Pigeon mask!

Once everyone’s bellies were full, they sat down in the treehouse for story time, made extra cozy with our new plush Berkshire blankets. It was finally time to read The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! by Mo Willems for the first time! The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! is recommended for ages 3-5, but was an instant hit (even with me). We love how silly Pigeon is. He never fails to make us laugh. He’s a lot like me, in a lot of ways. He over-analyzes things, freaks out and then when he finally gives in to the idea, he is so happy that he took a chance.

About the Book:

The Pigeon is about to get SCHOOLED. Do YOU think he should go? Why does the Pigeon have to go to school? He already knows everything! And what if he doesn’t like it? What if the teacher doesn’t like him? What if he learns TOO MUCH!?! Ask not for whom the school bell rings; it rings for the Pigeon!

The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! is now in stores. Pick yours up, make a Pigeon mask and have a hot dog party of your own! Just make sure to save one for Pigeon!

Looking for a party theme for your Mo Willems fan? Consider this Pigeon party idea thanks to Disney Book Group. #ReadMoWillems #sponsored

XOXO

    I am a simple guy. If I had to create my own hot dog it would have chili and cheese. I also like the idea of giving kids many options to choose what they like.

  • It looks like she had a great time at her party! I love this idea for food. 🙂

    This is so cool! I really like the idea of a hotdog bar. If I would re-create this party idea for a kids’ party, I would probably stock up on bacon, cheese, ketchup and mustard. If it were for adult guests, I would probably have some pickled jalapeños.

    Cool party idea. If I will re-create this party theme, I think I will need to have lots of cheese and bacon, ketchup and mustard, and other stuff would love. If it were teens and adults, I would throw in some pickled jalapeños!
