When I was younger, I thought I knew what the “perfect guy” was. Turns out, I was looking for all the wrong things... Until I met Super Dad. I really lucked out with this one. Among the things that I love about him, he is first and foremost THE most incredible Dad. It’s moments like this one I captured at the pumpkin patch, when I can’t help falling in love with him all over again.  I’m a lucky girl. What is your favorite thing about your significant other?

Iyla is one-of-a-kind. At only 10 years old, she’s always extra sensitive to others feelings, as much as she is her own. #ad But this beautiful trait also causes her to be extra cautious. Living in Florida, we have pretty regular, nasty storms, including hurricanes. She often hides and seeks shelter, not only for herself, but for her little sister. She creates a comfortable space, in our laundry room and sets up pillows, blankets and has plenty to keep them distracted. Crafts are a great option, because they keep her busy and she is able to create something to remind her that she made it through the storm. 
Loopies by @alex_toys is a new favorite because she’s able to create her own plush character! They are pre-sewn and come with the softest Chenille yarn and a crochet hook. All she had to do was just stuff, pull the loops of yarn, and add the Loopies’ features like faces and paws. Crafts like #Loopies help Iyla to feel in control of the situations that she would otherwise feel a little helpless. 
They have a variety of characters available, including this adorable puppy and are perfect for ages 7+. Check out more Loopies characters at Walmart!  Do your kids love crafts too?

As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

While today is National Taco Day, we’ve decided to share one of our favorite taco recipes. Technically, it’s not a taco, it’s a tostada, but it’s just as delicious whether it’s in a folded tortilla shell or on top of a flat corn tostada. Lime and cilantro shrimp with a zesty sauce will wow your tastebuds and will be a huge hit for your family!

The first time I made this dish for my family, I was shocked at the reaction. My youngest, who swears she doesn’t like seafood, ate more shrimp than I knew her tiny body could handle. My oldest kept talking about the “explosion of flavors” in her mouth. It was as though she had just left one of those fancy cooking shows. I’m pretty sure my husband ate at least 6 and was still asking for more. So when you find a recipe like this lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe, you have to make it often and share it with everyone.

Looking for a family friendly dish packed with flavor? This lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe is exactly what your tastebuds have been waiting for.

Lime and Cilantro Shrimp Tostadas

The perfect flavor combination of lime, cilantro and fresh shrimp, all on top of a corn tostada.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mexican

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 pkg corn tostadas

Shrimp Marinade

  • 3 limes juiced
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • lime zest
  • salt

Slaw

  • 2 cups cabbage shredded
  • ¼ red onion chopped thin
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 haas avocado cubed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt
  • lime zest
  • 1 tbsp paprika

Instructions

  • Whisk together all ingredients for the shrimp marinade. Add shrimp and mix until shrimp is fully covered. Cover bowl and marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine all slaw ingredients in another bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  • In a small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and whisk until combined.
  • Preheat pan or grill on medium heat. Grill shrimp until pink and fully cooked.
  • Place tostada on plate. Top with slaw, 3-4 shrimp, drizzle sauce and top with chopped cilantro.

So you may be wondering why we chose shrimp. Well, up until a few weeks ago, I was a pescatarian. I had given up meat for over two years and shrimp was one of those ingredients that we tried to fit into meals at least twice a month.So aside from our favorite dijon shrimp scampi recipe, this lime and cilantro shrimp tostada is at the top of our family’s request list.

It makes a great family dinner because it’s super quick to make and gives everyone the option of building their own tostada. My kids love to “cook” and build their own meals. So you can set out the tostadas, the slaw, the shrimp and the sauce and allow them to make their own. I also put out some sliced lime wedges because my family likes theirs extra sour.

If you are a vegetarian, I also recommend trying our lentil taco recipe. The avocado and salsa fresca is so yummy! It’s every bit of happiness in your mouth, without the meat and perfect for National Taco Day, or any day, really.

What are your plans for National Taco Day? Comment below and let us know!

This incredible lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe is packed with flavor, kid friendly and perfect for any day of the year!
