I love the holidays. Any holiday really. It's a great excuse to pull out our box of craft supplies that we've collected over the years and use our imaginations! And I especially love encouraging our little one’s creativity. We try 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, their school friends or even their favorite teachers! Hopefully you already checked out our Snowman Jars, which were a HUGE hit. Now, we're excited to share our second Christmas craft idea.. these hot cocoa reindeer jars! Everything you need to make hot cocoa, all wrapped up in a festive little jar that’s easy for the kids to make! Click the link in our bio or swipe up in stories for the step-by-step. .

There’s something about a good, homemade stuffing (or dressing as some call it) that makes the whole Thanksgiving meal that much better. I have tried a number of different types of stuffing in my years, but I always found them to be very soggy and while many love it that way, I’m just not a fan of the mush. Once we had kids and I started wanting to cook entire thanksgiving feasts by myself, I realized that without the perfect stuffing recipe, my feast was going to be more of a flop. Over the years, I finally perfected the recipe and now, I’m excited to share it with all of you on the blog today (link is in my bio or you can swipe up in stories).

Apparently, it’s my birthday 🎂 … Isn’t it funny how as you get older, your birthday gets less and less exciting? I used to do a countdown, like a month in advance. I would remind everyone I saw. It was ridiculous. Now, if it wasn’t for the 3049823048 notifications that I get from FB, from all of the people that I haven’t heard from since last year, I might not even remember it’s my birthday at all. But since the cat’s out of the bag, yes, it’s my birthday. I’m 35 + shipping and handling and feel every bit my age, especially when I try to keep up with my kids . I’m spending the day packing for my birthday vacation (whoop!) and look forward to celebrating with my family! Since I can’t take you all with me, I’ve joined a bunch of really awesome bloggers to give away $430 on the blog today! So take a minute, click on the #linkinbio or swipe up in stories and enter to win! What would you do with the extra money?

While I do talk about it in DMs when people reach out, it occurred to me that many of you are unaware of my other blog, @thesuperblogcoach. The story behind it is that I had a couple of incredible women who taught me what I needed to know to become a successful blogger and influencer so I could support my family through this fun career. I wanted to make sure I did the same for others. It got difficult repeating things over and over again so I decided to create a site where I would blog solely about tips for bloggers and influencers, no matter where in their journey they are. That way, I could direct people over there and they can read at their own speed. I don’t charge for any of the info. It’s totally free. Just my way of paying it forward. I hope you’ll check it out and if you have anything you’re currently struggling with, let me know. I’ll add it to my topic list for future blog posts! Now tell me, did you know about thesuperblogcoach.com?

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?

Our Mama + Daughter Adventure [feat. Eddy & Scout]

If You Love It, Share It!

When I saw that Eddy & Scout was having an adventure contest, my fingers couldn’t type fast enough.  They wanted me to dress my 7 year old up in one of their beautiful dresses and take her on an adventure, while capturing the moments with my camera.  I don’t know about you, but it sounds like the best contest ever.

I checked with Iyla and wasn’t surprised that within five seconds she was running into the other room, telling her sisters about it.  When we got chosen, she lost her mind.  She spent the next week asking me when her dress was going to get here and when the adventure would begin.  We tried to come up with some ideas for our special Mama + Daughter adventure while we waited.  Honestly, it was the only way to pass the time while she waited for what seemed like an eternity in kid years.

And then the package finally arrived.  Iyla was in love.  She tried on the dress immediately and pranced around the house like she was on cloud 9.  The dress has just the right amount of girly for her and is so comfy she refused to take it off.  I literally had to bribe her to get her to remove it.

When our adventure day finally arrived, my oldest daughter braided Iyla’s hair and we were off to one of our favorite places, the wildlife preserve.  Iyla is fascinated by photography (I have no idea where she gets that from), so we thought it would be fun for her to photograph wildlife while I photographed her.  And so our adventure began.

We found this awesome spot where people can look through giant binoculars at the wetlands.  I love that Iyla always goes for the bigger ones, even if she has to stand on her tippy toes.  She’s always reaching for the stars.  I couldn’t stop giggling because she could only look directly up at the sky but she didn’t seem to mind.  I’m sure her amazing imagination was at work!

Next, we took a walk along the trail to her favorite spot.  There is a tiki hut and two rocking chairs where you can sit and admire nature.  It’s super relaxing and absolutely gorgeous.  Occasionally you can see birds, frogs and fish and although there is a sign warning about alligators, we’ve never seen one in this particular spot (thank goodness).

03292017_3
Bows: iBetterAccessorize, Dress: Eddy & Scout

We decided to keep walking. This particular preserve has a long trail that my girls love.  Although there were so many people there that day, Iyla and I found time to talk about life and it felt as though most of the time, it was just me and her.  There is this one area where the railings were never built or maybe had fallen down during a storm and she used to be terrified to walk down there.  This time, she asked if we could check it out and she promised that she wouldn’t be afraid.  This was an adventure after all….

03292017_4
Bows: iBetterAccessorize, Dress: Eddy & Scout

We found so many beautiful trees on the trail. This particular one really interested us because of it’s bark.  I love her fascination with nature and science.  I often wonder if she’s going to grow up to be a scientist or do something that involves animals.  I know that whatever she does, she’s going to change the world.  Her heart is huge and she’s always thinking of ways to make the world a better place.

03292017_5
Bows: iBetterAccessorize, Dress: Eddy & Scout

On our way back to the front, we ran into an older man who showed us a picture he had taken of a woodpecker and then told us that they had spotted 2 alligators out by the dock and encouraged us to go check it out.  Iyla had never seen an alligator up close so she was excited at the chance to finally catch a glimpse. We even found a spot with a bunch of red canoes which was awesome because the Eddy & Scout logo has a canoe on it!  Do you believe in fate?

03292017_6
Bows: iBetterAccessorize, Dress: Eddy & Scout

Unfortunately, though we looked in the spots that the man had recommended, we didn’t get to see an alligator that day, but I would rather stare at her all day anyway.  She is pretty cute, after all.  We got lots of compliments on her dress.   One lady even mentioned that her granddaughter would love it.  Of course we had to share the name of the shop.

Next, it was across the street to the nature trails.  While Iyla wasn’t a big fan of the area since there are always sounds coming from the bushes, she loved walking the trail.  She was grateful for the long sleeves too because the mosquitos out there are wild!  We found lots of spots to stop so that she could take pictures and I was right behind her, taking pictures of her enjoying her adventure.

03292017_9
Bows: iBetterAccessorize, Dress: Eddy & Scout

Our last spot was this amazing area that reminded me of a deserted island.  We had just watched Moana and Iyla was in love with this spot because she could pretend that she was Moana, just for a moment.  It is such a calm and serene spot that we wound up staying there for quite a while, just talking and hanging out.

03292017_10
Bows: iBetterAccessorize, Dress: Eddy & Scout

Hearing her tell me how grateful she was for our day together made me understand that we won this contest, no matter what the outcome is.  I am super grateful that Eddy & Scout gave us the opportunity to get dressed up, get away from technology and enjoy time together, not to mention the amazing pictures that I now have so that we can look back and remember how special this day was to the both of us. It’s an adventure we’ll never forget.

I encourage you to check out Eddy & Scout.  Eddy & Scout offers kids clothing sizes from 3m-8y designed for adventure, comfort (sensory friendly), and growth (extendable inseams). All of their items are proudly and ethically made in the USA! What’s better than that?!  If you check out their story, you’ll find that when they started this business, they refused the idea of outsourcing overseas in the pursuit of “cheap labor”.  As a parent, the owner, Holly, could not imagine her own child being forced to work in a factory instead of enjoying the adventure of childhood, and could not risk being a party to maltreatment of any other human, child or adult.  Because of this, Eddy & Scout manufactures locally in their studio in Orange County, California and maintain a strong relationship with each of their sewers, ensuring that they are being paid a fair and living wage, as well as enjoying the rights of U.S. labor law.  I applaud them for this!

Ready to shop? Visit eddyandscout.com and use code IYLA (that’s an i, not an l) to save!   I know you’ll love the clothing as much as we do! Make sure to follow them on instagram @eddyandscout for deals, giveaways, new releases and more!
