Have you ever watched a commercial and you just can’t contain your emotions? AD: That’s how I felt when I saw @crest’s new TV commercial, featuring 86 year old Bertha Nunn! To celebrate the season of giving, Crest partnered with Wish of a Lifetime and made Berth’s wish come true by casting her alongside Santa in its latest holiday spot. What an incredible way for Crest to give people a lot to smile about (and in my case, cry). It made me think about our beautiful Nana, who would have been 95 last week, and her lifelong dream of visiting Hawaii. Sadly, she wasn’t able to fulfill her dream before she passed in 2016, but we are determined to go to Hawaii and bring a picture of her with us wherever we go. While she won’t physically be there, she will be there in spirit and that will make us all so happy. Now, grab your tissues and check out Bertha’s debut (click on the link in my bio or check out my stories for a sneak peek). Then, look for Bertha, with Santa and Crest, this holiday season. After watching her story, be sure to share her journey and  share a smile. If you could have any wish granted this holiday season, what would it be? #CrestSmiles .

So your kid spends all of their time watching other kids open toys, play video games or walk around aimlessly, talking about nothing? Sounds exactly like this girl. Every time I turn around, she is watching someone else’s family on YouTube. This year, I asked Falynn to create a gift guide with what she wants most for the holidays. I was NOT surprised that her list was full of things that she's seen or heard about on her favorite YouTube channels. She even used the word "merch" which totally cracked me up! MERCH! What 7 year old says that?! She has also asked that I figure out how to create a toy line with her face on the box. Those videos have her convinced that it's the natural next step for us and she's confused as to why it's taking me so long to get it done. 😒 Those YouTube families make it look so easy, don't they?! Anyway, instead of sharing a holiday gift guide for 7 year olds, I figured I would share the perfect holiday gift guide for all of you parents out there who have kids that are just as obsessed with @ryansworld, @tictactoyfamily,  @funnelvisionfam and all those other fun youtubers who are living our dream lives right now. Head to the blog and check it out! .

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 .

The Name Game [feat. LeoTudes]

When you have an uncommon name, it’s SO incredibly hard to find personalized items, am I right?! I can remember back in my pre-school days, our class basically consisted of the same names… Amy, Jessica, Jennifer, Brian and Jason. There were at least 2 in each class. You could go into any store that sold personalized items and find those names in bulk.  But these days, it’s pretty rare to hear common names and these companies that sell ready made personalized items aren’t having such an easy time because there are SO many different names and SO many different spelling options!  So what do you do when you have an uncommon name?  You shop small!

I remember seeing a picture of a personalized leotard on Facebook and fell in love instantly.  LeoTudes features designed and handmade comfortable leotards for your little girls. Some are personalized but all are made using the softest fabrics. According to their website, they provide sophisticated and sweet leos, no matter what ‘tude your little one sports today.  It’s all such a great concept and I’m so happy I stumbled upon the small shop when I did.

Leotard: LeoTudes

Falynn absolutely LOVES dancing. This is her 2nd year dancing and the dance studio is one of her favorite places to hang out.  When I told her that this leo was on the way, she couldn’t wait to see it. She loves receiving things with her name on it and when she can wear it to her favorite place in the world, well, it quickly becomes one of her favorite things.  When the leo arrived, I couldn’t believe how soft the lining was.  It’s beautifully made and the fit was perfect. I love the scoop neck in the back. It gives it a little something extra and is the perfect accent! Needless to say, she was ready to wear it to her next class and got so many compliments on it from everyone.

When you have an uncommon name, it's hard to find personalized anything. That's just one of the reasons we love LeoTudes!

    What a cute leotard! My youngest has a less common name and we could never find anything premade with his name on it.

    This is so cute! I love the idea. Personalized clothing is super fun :). And wonderful for those with uncommon names 🙂

  • Anna
    June 28, 2019

    What a cutie! I´d love to get personalized leotards for my little girls, although their names are not the most uncommon ones – Leticia and Olivia, It´s still not easy to find personalized items at times!

  • Ashley Rice
    June 28, 2019

    First off, these look absolutely amazing! Second off, love that they can personalize names! How fun!!

  • Louisa

    So true about finding personalized items with your name. And this leotard is super cute on her.

  • Lavern Moore
    June 28, 2019

    I wish they had personalization like this for adults. I would definitely cop a leotard with my uncommon name!

  • Heather
    June 28, 2019

    So cute and fun with her name! My youngest is four and would love a leotard with her name all over it too!

  • Rachel
    June 28, 2019

    Wouldn’t this be nice for a dance teacher if the whole class had these on? They would have a name cheat sheet on the ready!

  • Brandy Caldwell
    June 28, 2019

    How cool to get her name on there! Thanks for sharing the shop!

  • Amy-Lynn Denham

    What a cute idea. When she was younger my step-daughter would have loved this. We could literally NEVER find her name spelled “correctly” on anything.

  • Jhentea

    She is so adorable and cute! I love the outfit she has it really fitted well. Thanks for sharing this with us!

    I love it! It’s so cute, simple and personally, I believe every outfit is customised for each and every customer.

  • Shelley
    June 28, 2019

    I love this! My name is never spelled the correct way. I get Shelly, Shellie, is your name really Michelle, no it’s really S-h-e-l-l-e-y.

  • Gervin Khan
    June 27, 2019

    Wow, this is so great! My two kids have a unique spelling of their names and yes, I am having a hard time too buying personalize items for them. I am glad that you were able to find a shop that can made this for her and I can see how happy she was wearing it..

  • Jamie H

  • Bill Sweeney
    June 27, 2019

    I think it’s awesome that you happened upon this brand. Every child with a cool and unique name such as yours should have some personalized apparel. This is wonderful, and I’m glad she loves it.

  • Lori Vachon

  • Natalie
    June 27, 2019

    That is so incredibly cute! She is definitely beaming in that leotard. I love her unique name too.

  • Roch
    June 27, 2019

    Love the personalization of the outfit! My only concern is that it will be harder to sell those with names. I plan on selling old clothes of babies since they grow up too fast and clothes take a lot of space in the cabinet.

  • Terri Steffes

    I love this! I might need to get these for my two adorable great nieces. I used to spoil their moms, so why not just transfer it all to them!!

  • Valerie

    That leotard is super cute and it really suits here. I grew up in a time where my own name was unusual and was always a bit bummed when I looked at things with names on them (like bike license plates) and didn’t see mine.

  • Janel
    June 27, 2019

    She’s so darling in that! I had an unusually name, so YES, I totally get that and had that problem!

    I love this! When my daughter was in gymnastics, I always shopped small for leotards. We loved this one woman who did leotards in Disney princesses. Natalie had Elsa and Belle. Oh, and Wonder Woman!
