In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

Trigger warning: Abduction 
Courageous is not the first adjective I'd use to describe myself. I don't open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don't always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don't make the same mistakes I do.  This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren't something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people... until now. One of the scariest nights of my life, which only seemed fitting to share on Halloween. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the blog and read about the night I was almost abducted.

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!
