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?⁣

One of my fondest memories growing up was going fishing with my Papa and my Uncle (swipe left to see me and Papa just before one of those fishing adventures). #ad There was something about that special time outdoors, waiting to see if we could catch something, that still brings a smile to my face. ⁣
⁣
My kids have a very different childhood. While they love to play outside, most of their hobbies are done inside and include a screen. I often wish I could show them how much fun it was to have a technology-free childhood. ⁣
⁣
Now that we’ve been spending more time at home, we are making it our mission to introduce things from our own childhood, starting with fishing. I’m happy to report that we’ve added fishing to our weekly calendar, and we feel good about bonding over “reel time” with our kids, reminiscing about our childhood and passing along our nostalgia and knowledge of fishing to our kids with the help of these Just Add Nature kits. ⁣
⁣
Just Add Nature is easy, FUN and designed with kids in mind! Plus, you can pick them up at @walmart or on Walmart.com for under $8! ⁣
⁣
Have you ever taken your kids fishing? What ways are you incorporating outdoor time into your schedule? ⁣

You know our family loves all things A-R-T. You can often find one of us drawing, sketching or painting #ad. So when we found out about BodyMark by BIC Temporary Tattoo Markers we couldn’t wait to try them out! Last week, Super Dad spent some much needed quality time with our oldest, Lucia, creating this gorgeous masterpiece. Didn’t he do a great job? Lucia also drew something to remind her of our late Nana on her other arm that turned out so beautiful. Check out our stories to see the video! I love it! ⁣
⁣
If your family loves art as much as we do, you’ll love these @BodyMarkbyBIC markers. They are special because they are designed to be used on skin. The flexible tip makes it easy to draw thin or broad lines. BodyMark comes in 8 vibrant colors and the designs can last a few days, but are also easily removable by concentrated soap and water or make up wipes. You can purchase them on Amazon (swipe up in stories). I’m thinking about pulling these out at our next kids party! Wouldn’t that be fun? ⁣

Iyla (pronounced eye-la) loves coding, Pokemon, talking to her friends, learning new languages (currently Hebrew and French) and hanging out with her sisters. ⁣
⁣
Iyla has a huge heart. This year, she is donating half of her birthday money to @cancerfreekids. She is going to change the world. I know it. ⁣
⁣
And while it may not be the birthday she imagined, the important thing is that we will be together. We will have a zoom party with friends and family, I’ll bake her a cake and make her a special dinner. She’ll open a present or two. We will make sure she knows how much we love her. ⁣

Since today is National Chocolate Chip Day, I asked my 10 year old what her all-time favorite chocolate chip dessert is. I wasn't at all surprised when she told me it was cannolis, because they are also my fave. But although I love to bake and I'm always up for a challenge, the idea of making my own cannoli shells scares me, mainly because I have the hardest time rolling out dough evenly. Anyone else have that problem? Any tips?⁣ Anyhoo, since she knows I'm not going to be making actual cannolis anytime soon, Iyla had the brilliant idea to make cannoli cupcakes instead. Genius! I am much more confident in my cupcake making abilities. So cannoli cupcakes it was! ⁣
⁣
Cinnamon and chocolate chip cupcakes with a mascarpone frosting, topped with mini chocolate chips and a cannoli chip. They turned out amazing and today I’m sharing the recipe on the blog. Just click on the link in our bio or swipe up in stories. ⁣

Today is actually “Dance Like a Chicken Day”. I had plans to dress Super Dad in a chicken costume and make him dance, but spending $50 on a chicken costume didn’t seem like the smartest financial decision, considering the circumstances. ⁣

So instead, enjoy this cute little video of Falynn dancing to her 3 year old rendition of her favorite Wicked song, Popular. Her little voice 😭⁣

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.

    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

    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

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

  • Heather

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

  • Rachel

    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!

    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.

    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..

  • Bill Sweeney

    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.

  • Roch

    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!!

    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

    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!
