Like most of you, I watched George Floyd fight for his last breath on national TV, by someone whose job it was to protect people. It sickened me.⁣
⁣
I’ve struggled to find the words to express how I was feeling. In all honesty, I was afraid to speak about it in fear that I would say the wrong thing or my thoughts would be misinterpreted.⁣
⁣
But staying silent can be misinterpreted too.⁣
⁣
Yesterday morning I watched an IGTV video by @cut and I knew I couldn’t stay silent any longer.⁣
⁣
I am a white woman. I will NEVER know what it’s like to be a person of color. I will never be pulled over because of the color of my skin. I have never been afraid of the police. And knowing that so many, at a young age are taught to act a certain way around a police officer, in fear that they may be arrested or worse, killed, for absolutely no reason at all, breaks my heart.⁣
⁣
But this isn’t about me or my feelings.⁣
⁣
This is about the senseless killings that continue happening. It’s about the injustice that people of color face. It’s about so many families that have lost loved ones. It’s about all of the beautiful black children and their parents and grandparents and extended family, that are afraid of what could happen to them because of the color of their skin.⁣
⁣
Imagine leaving your home every day and wondering if you’ll ever return. No one should ever have to feel that way.⁣
⁣
It’s time we stopped the silence and did something about it. It’s time we focus on change and how we can do better. I’m sharing ways we can make a change on the blog today and I’ve included the link in my bio. ⁣

Best part about having a teenage daughter? We can enjoy Lifetime Original Movies together! [ad] I'm so excited for this weekend's movie marathon! @LifetimeTV has always been one of my favorites and just like me, this year they are celebrating 30 incredible years (wink, wink)! ⁣
⁣
Lucia and I are ready for a weekend of movies, popcorn and LOTS of commentary. Somehow, even if it's a drama or a thriller, we find ourselves laughing. She definitely shares my crazy sense of humor. ⁣
⁣
Today we are planning on watching Death of a Cheerleader at 11am EST and Flowers in the Attic at 4pm EST and tomorrow, Beaches at 12pm EST. ⁣
⁣
The marathon begins today at 11am EST and ends Sunday night.. so grab your popcorn and tune in with us. Don't forget to check out our stories where we'll be sharing what it's like to watch a movie with us (almost as entertaining as the movies themselves). #LifetimeLoyals  #LifetimeTV #LOM30 ⁣

I don’t know who needs to hear this right now, but this is only temporary. ⁣
⁣
I’ve said it to myself a million times since I was diagnosed with anxiety disorder. And now, during this pandemic, it’s something we all have to focus on. ⁣
⁣
We won’t always be locked in our homes. We won’t always have to wear a mask in public. Our kids won’t always be schooled online. We won’t always be out of work. Because just like anxiety, this pandemic is only temporary. ⁣
⁣
Enjoy your family. Cherish every moment you are being “forced” to spend with them. Your kids are growing up and they won’t always be little. Having them at home with you is just as temporary. ⁣
⁣
Today on the blog, our friend Alison @theanxietyhealer is sharing her personal struggle and how she’s coping with anxiety during a pandemic. She’s also included her favorite affirmations for you. Link is in my bio (or swipe up in stories). ⁣

Today is #nationalbrisketday so obviously I have to share my go-to slow cooker BBQ brisket recipe. It’s probably one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make. It tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen cooking it, though it takes just minutes to prep. Best part is, you can make this recipe with any cut of beef! Serve on a plate with your favorite sides or on a roll for a delicious sandwich. Your family will love it!⁣

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?⁣

Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow St. Patrick’s Day Gift Idea

When we think of St. Patrick’s Day, we think leprechauns and the giant pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The girls love to create little treats for their friends at school and this year we thought it would be fun to focus on those things and create the cutest little St. Patrick’s Day gift. They can be given out to classmates, co-workers or even teachers! I even created a FREE printable for you and posted a how to video below, so make sure to check that out!

A couple of things before we get to the details… you can use any rainbow candies you’d like for these St. Patrick’s Day gifts. We chose M&M’s because they had all of the colors we needed. We were able to pick up a 3lb 14oz container at our local club warehouse. They are also available on Amazon (I linked that below for you).

If you are able to, I highly recommend allowing the kids to help! I had my 7 year old sort the colors and then help me count 18 pieces, of each color, into each bag. When we were finished, she said she had so much fun because it was like mixing chocolate and math. I love any project that gets my girls to love math more!

How to Create These St. Patrick’s Day Gifts

You’ll need:
Our FREE Printable
Rainbow Candy (we chose M&Ms)
Chocolate Gold Coins
Bags
Cardstock Paper
Scissors or Paper Cutter
Hole Punch
Pen or Marker

Directions:

  1. Download our free Lucky and Rainbow Printable, open in Adobe Acrobat and print on cardstock paper (you can also use regular printer paper if that’s all you have available).
  2. Using a paper cutter or scissors, cut out each card (there are 20 on each page).
  3. Punch a hole on each card on the top left hand side.
  4. Fill out the “from” on each card.
  5. Separate rainbow candies by color.
  6. Open a bag and place 18 pieces of each, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and brown candies. The number may vary, depending on the size and shape of the bags you choose. This worked well for the bags we linked to above.
  7. Place 8 chocolate gold coins on top, in a stack.
  8. If you chose the same bags we used, use a provided tie to tie the top of the bag. If you used different bags, you can use string or ribbon.
  9. Place one part of the tie/ribbon, into the punched hole on one of the cards and tie one last time to secure.
  10. Repeat until you have all of the gift bags you need.
