Remember that story I posted the other day, showing you guys the homemade ice cream and asked you to guess the flavor? It’s finally time to reveal the big secret! Sunday is National Ice Cream Day, so we wanted to come up with an extra special recipe. We decided that creating an ice cream pie, inspired by a candy bar, would be a fun idea. And while our family has MANY different "favorite" candy bars, as soon as I mentioned this one, they were all in! The combination of toasted coconut and toasted almond ice cream, with chocolate ganache, on a chocolate pie crust and topped with shredded coconut and almonds, sounded so good, they made me go to the store immediately to pick up all of the ingredients. Today on the blog, I’m sharing the recipe! Head over to find out the candy bar and print out the recipe. It’s super easy to make! What’s your favorite candy bar? Do you think it would taste good as an ice cream pie? #nationalicecreamday #nationalicecreammonth #raedunnfinds #raedunnlove #homegoodsfinds #homegoodshappy #tjmaxxfinds #candybar #almondjoy #foodstyle #foodpassion #foodography #mombloggers  #foodinsta  #foodielife #foodielovers #targetfinds #targetdoesitagain #instafoods #kidfriendly #yummyyummyinmytummy #yummyyummy #foodielife #deliciosa

Having lived with anxiety for over 13 years, speaking publicly about it for almost 3 and having finally been officially diagnosed with an anxiety disorder recently, I've heard just about everything. While my family and friends mean well, so many of them have a knack for saying the wrong thing when my anxiety is at its highest. It occurred to me that they aren't trying to be hurtful, they are really just trying to help me to get over that "moment". So instead of getting upset, I figured I'd share the 5 things you should never say to someone with anxiety, on the blog today. Can you think of any I’ve missed? .

#ad Ladies, how much do you really know about your #periodhealth? Even in my 40’s, I can honestly say that I am still learning about my body and what it should and shouldn’t do every month. And the truth is, most women don’t know what is normal vs. abnormal when it comes to their #period. In a recent survey, 85% of women agreed that heavy periods were “normal” - and 69% agreed that pain is “something to be expected”. FACT: Heavy periods do not have to be your normal – know your options: http://www.WeHateHeavyPeriods.com #WeHateHeavyPeriods #linkinbio @changethecycle #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #healthandwellness #empowerwomen #healthfirst #healyourself #healthytips #empoweryourself #periodproblems #womenhealth #nourishyourself #periodpositive #empowerothers #workingmomlife #healthjourney #womenpower #empoweringwomen #empoweredwomen #epcotflowerandgardenfestival #epcotcenter #butterflys

We partnered with @disneybooks to celebrate the release of a brand new Pigeon book: The Pigeon HAS to Go to School! by Mo Willems. Since Mo Willems is Falynn’s favorite author of all time, we had to throw a pigeon themed party, featuring Pigeon’s favorite, HOT DOGS!  And we couldn’t stop there. Falynn thought it would be fun to create the ultimate kids hot dog bar, with lots of unusual, but kid-friendly toppings. Check out the blog today to hear all about it and learn how you can throw your own Pigeon-themed party for your little Mo Willems fan! #ReadMoWillems #disneyblogger #disneylifestyle #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer19 #pigeon #partytheme #hotdogs #kidspartyideas #childrensparties #kidsparty #partykids

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger and have been solely supporting our family since April of 2018, they have so many questions. But the question I get asked the most is, 🍃 “How do I get started as a blogger?” My answer always starts the same. I want you to ask yourself one simple question. 🌸 Do I have the time to dedicate to a blog?  I’m not talking about an hour every other Saturday, or when it’s convenient. I’m talking about full-time job kinda time. If not, you’re probably not ready. Starting and maintaining a blog is A LOT of work and it requires a lot of dedication. Like everything in this world, if you can commit the time, and you put your all into it, you too can support your family this way. If I can do it, anyone can. 
Today on the blog, I’m sharing the first 5 steps you need to take to start making money as a blogger. It’s the beginning of a series of posts I’ll be sharing, that will hopefully help more people to get to where they want to be.

Summer is flying by, isn’t it? Not only have the girls been keeping up with their Summer reading, but they had read all of the books I got them by the end of June! Luckily, we partnered with @disneybooks and were able to get Serafina and the Seven Stars prior to its release today! Lucia had been anticipating the new book from the Serafina series and couldn’t wait to start reading it, and now you can grab a copy too! The #SerafinaSeries by Robert Beatty has been one of her favorites. In the new book, our heroine must confront deceptively dark and terrifying forces. Of all the books, this one is probably her favorite! You can get Serafina and the Seven Stars in stores now! You can also click on the link in our bio, where we’ve added the link to the new book, on Amazon.

Summer is flying by, isn’t...

No, your IG isn’t broken. Every time I talk openly about my anxiety disorder, I get the same response, from so many people.
“You're not broken.”
They're right, I'm not broken. It's not that I can't be fixed. It's not that I can't overcome my anxiety. It's not that there is no hope and I should just be thrown out like the pieces of my favorite porcelain mug that I accidentally dropped. I can be put back together and there's a great possibility that I will one day return to my former, non-anxiety-filled self.
Read more on today’s blog... I'm not broken, but I'm definitely glitching. (Link in bio or swipe up in stories)

Amazon Prime Day is almost here! Are you ready? What deals are you hoping to snag? Our family will be on the lookout for things like a laptop, a camera lens, an inflatable air mattress (I got a great one last year) and a keyboard with a stand.

Amazon Prime Day 2019

This year, Amazon Prime Day will last 48 hours, from 3am on July 15th – 2:59am on July 17th and will offer more than 1 million deals! Many will be available throughout the sale and some will be featured as Lightning Deals. Lighting Deals only last for a certain amount of time, or until they are sold out. They launch throughout the 48 hour sale.

While they don’t share the deals ahead of time, you can download the Amazon app to find upcoming deals! You can “watch” the items you want and Amazon will send you a notification when the deal is about to go live. You can also ask Alexa to set a reminder for you.

Once a Lightning Deal goes live, you can add it to your shopping cart. You’ll have 15 minutes to complete the order. If the item sells out before you’re able to buy it, make sure to join the waitlist. If for some reason, someone decides not to purchase, you’ll still get the opportunity to buy one.

Can Anyone Shop Amazon Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day is exclusively for Amazon Prime members. We’ve been Prime members since 2017 and have found that your membership pays for itself very quickly, as you don’t have to pay shipping on any item marked Prime.  You also get things much quicker by choosing Amazon Prime shipping!

If you’re not already an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up here for a free 30-day trial!

Amazon Prime Day is July 15 and 16th this year. Here's what you need to know to be prepared.

What’s Included in Your Amazon Prime Membership?

When you sign up for an Amazon Prime Membership, you’ll take advantage of lots of perks including, fast and free shipping, the ability to instantly stream thousands of movies and tv shows on-demand, ad-free music streaming, free 2-hour delivery with Prime Now, discounts on various family items and more!

Know someone who might like Amazon Prime? Gift the gift of Prime! It’s the perfect birthday or holiday gift!

Good luck getting everything you’re hoping for! Don’t forget to come back and share the deals you snagged!

    I have purchased a ton of stuff from Amazon just because I had gift cards then when it came time to buy things with just cash, I always seem to find a better deal elsewhere. I just don’t know where all of these great deals are everyone talks about. It seems like Ebay has better deals for what I am buying but I do like prime so sometimes you pay for convenience too. I do need a few things though, maybe I will give them another shot with your tips.
