Having lived with anxiety for over 13 years, speaking publicly about it for almost 3 and having finally been officially diagnosed with an anxiety disorder recently, I've heard just about everything. While my family and friends mean well, so many of them have a knack for saying the wrong thing when my anxiety is at its highest. It occurred to me that they aren't trying to be hurtful, they are really just trying to help me to get over that "moment". So instead of getting upset, I figured I'd share the 5 things you should never say to someone with anxiety, on the blog today. Can you think of any I’ve missed? .

#ad Ladies, how much do you really know about your #periodhealth? Even in my 40’s, I can honestly say that I am still learning about my body and what it should and shouldn’t do every month. And the truth is, most women don’t know what is normal vs. abnormal when it comes to their #period. In a recent survey, 85% of women agreed that heavy periods were “normal” - and 69% agreed that pain is “something to be expected”. FACT: Heavy periods do not have to be your normal – know your options: http://www.WeHateHeavyPeriods.com #WeHateHeavyPeriods #linkinbio @changethecycle #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #healthandwellness #empowerwomen #healthfirst #healyourself #healthytips #empoweryourself #periodproblems #womenhealth #nourishyourself #periodpositive #empowerothers #workingmomlife #healthjourney #womenpower #empoweringwomen #empoweredwomen #epcotflowerandgardenfestival #epcotcenter #butterflys

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger and have been solely supporting our family since April of 2018, they have so many questions. But the question I get asked the most is, 🍃 “How do I get started as a blogger?” My answer always starts the same. I want you to ask yourself one simple question. 🌸 Do I have the time to dedicate to a blog?  I’m not talking about an hour every other Saturday, or when it’s convenient. I’m talking about full-time job kinda time. If not, you’re probably not ready. Starting and maintaining a blog is A LOT of work and it requires a lot of dedication. Like everything in this world, if you can commit the time, and you put your all into it, you too can support your family this way. If I can do it, anyone can. 
Today on the blog, I’m sharing the first 5 steps you need to take to start making money as a blogger. It’s the beginning of a series of posts I’ll be sharing, that will hopefully help more people to get to where they want to be.

Summer is flying by, isn’t it? Not only have the girls been keeping up with their Summer reading, but they had read all of the books I got them by the end of June! Luckily, we partnered with @disneybooks and were able to get Serafina and the Seven Stars prior to its release today! Lucia had been anticipating the new book from the Serafina series and couldn’t wait to start reading it, and now you can grab a copy too! The #SerafinaSeries by Robert Beatty has been one of her favorites. In the new book, our heroine must confront deceptively dark and terrifying forces. Of all the books, this one is probably her favorite! You can get Serafina and the Seven Stars in stores now! You can also click on the link in our bio, where we’ve added the link to the new book, on Amazon.

No, your IG isn’t broken. Every time I talk openly about my anxiety disorder, I get the same response, from so many people.
“You're not broken.”
They're right, I'm not broken. It's not that I can't be fixed. It's not that I can't overcome my anxiety. It's not that there is no hope and I should just be thrown out like the pieces of my favorite porcelain mug that I accidentally dropped. I can be put back together and there's a great possibility that I will one day return to my former, non-anxiety-filled self.

Falynn is my hero. On a daily basis, she faces her fears head on. She lets us know that she’s a little afraid but always does it anyway, with very little to no push from me or Super Dad. You can often find her jumping up and down and yelling “I did it!” after she’s conquered another one. At 6 years old, she is my inspiration. Whenever anxiety gets the best of me, I need to replay every one of those moments where she didn’t let her fear and the unknown stop her from living her best life. .

How to Create the Ultimate Kids Hot Dog Bar

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

Potato Sticks
Cheese Puffs
Sunflower Seeds (in case Pigeon stopped by)
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

    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!
