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!

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?

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?

This post is sponsored, but all opinions are my own.

While there isn’t much of my childhood that I really remember anymore, there is one specific thing that I’ll never forget…  The soothing smell of Vicks VapoRub. When I was congested or had a cough, my Nana would always go into her medicine cabinet and grab the VapoRub.  Once she rubbed it on my chest and neck, I instantly felt comforted and was able to go to sleep. The smell still brings me back, all these years later.

My Nana and Papa’s house was a huge part of my childhood.  I remember every inch of that house. From the yellow wallpapered kitchen to the green 70’s style chairs in the living room.  The fruit trees that lined the sides and back of the home and the little bedroom where I would lay on the floor and make shadow puppets on the wall.  There was something about that house that always made me feel safe, comfortable and so loved.  Although, I think anywhere my Grandparents were, was my comfort zone.  My Grandparents were amazing people and I owe so much of my drive and personality to the both of them.  While I miss them enormously, I continue to share their methods with my own kids.

As a Mother of three, when my girls are congested, I have the job of bringing that same relief to my daughters when they’re feeling under the weather. They seem to bring home some sort of cough on a regular basis. Aren’t school germs awesome?  And it’s always the kind of cough that lingers and acts up at night.  When they are kept awake, so are we.  Lucky for us, VapoRub’s medicated vapors last up to 8 hours to help parents and children get cough relief so they can get rest.

When my girls are feeling under the weather, they know what to do. They grab the VapoRub from their medicine cabinet.  I love watching their faces as they inhale the medicated vapors and get ready for bed. I must have told them a million times that it was my Nana’s favorite.  Part of me thinks that they love it that much more, because it’s a part of her that they can still connect to. And while she’s no longer with us, her traditions can still live on through us.

While we can’t rely on much, I know that we can rely on Vicks. The Vicks® legacy is about more than just cold and flu medicine. It’s about giving families the opportunity to continue life—even on sick days—for more than 100 years.  I love that Vicks® VapoRub™  is great for ages two and up. It’s topical cough medicine with medicated vapors starts working quickly for adults as well to relieve cough symptoms. VapoRub is the #1 pediatrician recommended cough rub.

    I love how it smells. I have a cool mist humidifier from them and it has that scent. I have it going right now.

  • Lynndee

    This reminds me of my childhood too because my mom made sure that we always had Vicks VapoRub. And I still use Vicks VapoRub until now.

  • Jennifer

    Same here! Many nights I got Vick’s slathered on my chest so I could sleep when I had a cold

  • Nichole Arnold
    February 22, 2018

    My Mom used it on a me a few times. I keep it in stock at all times for my son. It really does help!

  • Lisa Bristol

    Vicks VapoRub is my go to when am congested. My Mom used to rub it on our feet and put socks on us. It always helps me feel better.

  • Wendy Polisi

    Vix was my mothers saving grace. She always used it to make us feel better.

    Oh yeah, I remember old school memories. I think my mom used Vicks for me when i was a child. It’s really good!

  • Chubskulit Rose

    My Mom always use this when we have a cold and couldn’t breath well. I do the same for my kids now.

  • Victoria Heckstall

    I love Vicks products. I always use that especially the one for the babies. I feel better whenever I used that.

  • Ricci

    There are certain scents that bring back childhood for me and VapoRub is definitely a scent that brings back some memories! LOL!! Also boxed Mac and cheese!! HA

  • Dina Demarest
    February 21, 2018

    Yes my mom and grandparents used Vicks on me. I in turn use it on my kids and myself to this day. It’s such a great product.

  • Becky Willis
    February 21, 2018

    Yes, my Mom used to always use it on myself, my sister and brother. I remember she would drape like a washcloth over our chest and it was warm and somehow secure it around our neck. So when I had kids I thought I would do the same but my 2 boys hated anything like that so I would wait until they went to sleep then rub it on their back lol. Now if my husband and I use it we put it on our feet and put wool or heavy socks on. That works wonders.

  • Marcie W.

    The menthol scent of Vicks VapoRub definitely brings back memories! Now I use it on my babies when they are sick. Classic comfort for sure!

  • GiGi Eats
    February 21, 2018

    I have actually NEVER used this stuff before!

  • Cherri Megasko
    February 21, 2018

    I can’t smell Vicks VapoRub (or anything that smells remotely similar, for that matter) without memories taking me back to my childhood. My mom would always rub it on my chest when I had a cold, as well as put a dab in our vaporizer that she would set up in my room. Not only are those fond memories, it works so well! My daughter uses it for her kids, too!

  • Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place
    February 21, 2018

    I don’t think I can live without Vick’s vaporub! We always have that at home and it’s the perfect product that provides instant relief not just for the kids but for me and my husband as well.

  • Paula Schuck
    February 20, 2018

    This is a brand that my Mom always used with us when we were sick. I totally trust Vicks and even kind of have come to like the smell and associate it with being a kid too.

  • Marysa
    February 20, 2018

    It’s funny, because I have heard so often how scents are linked so heavily with memories. So often, I smell something and it takes me back to somewhere, sometime. I do associate Vicks Vaporub with my childhood!

  • Michele Brosius
    February 20, 2018

    Oh my gosh! Vicks brings back a lot of childhood memories for me too. I can vividly remember my mom coming in my room in the middle of the night and rubbing it on my chest. I used it all of my kids, too.

  • Michele Brosius

    Vaporub is soooo handy. I even use it as an adult when I get sick-it always helped when momma used it.

  • Sarah Bailey
    February 20, 2018

    Hands up I love Vicks I have some in the draw in my bedroom and it always comes out when someone feels ill it really does help with breathing!

  • Jennifer Van Huss
    February 20, 2018

    Vicks is definitely a part of my childhood memories. Whenever I was sick, I remember my mom getting out the vick rub and putting it on my chest. The minty smell always makes me smile as I knew I would be able to sleep after she put it on!

  • Danielle Smith
    February 20, 2018

    How wonderful that is to have such fond memories with your grand-parents! Vick’s has been a big staple in my family’s life for many years. A friendly tip (unless you’ve heard of this before): Rub Vick’s on your feet and wear socks before climbing into bed. It works wonders!

  • Joely Smith
    February 20, 2018

    I LOVE Vicks Vapor Rub! I know that sounds silly but Vicks has been used for generations in my family! It reminds me of HOME in some strange way! Home being my grandmother’s where I grew up. Vicks WORKS in the way that is should but it is also just so soothing when you feel horrible. We all want that right?!

  • Stacie
    February 20, 2018

    The smell of Vick’s brings such great memories for me. I remember how nice it felt to be tucked in and doted over by my mom when I was feeling bad.
