As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years. 
You don’t have to “live with it”.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

My girls are snackers. When they get home from school, they want to be able to grab a quick snack to take with them on the way to after-school activities, or to enjoy while they do their homework. #ad Peanut Butter is a huge hit in our home, but it can get messy, so when I found out about Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, I couldn't wait to grab some. Instead of making a huge mess (and forgetting to close the lid) with a regular container of peanut butter, the girls can grab one packet and easily add it to just about anything. Some of our favorites are bananas, apples, pretzels, celery or crackers. They have fun creating new combinations and I love that they come in convenient 1.15oz squeezable packets. So much less mess! They are also perfect for their lunchboxes. The peanut butter is so creamy and delicious! BTW, they are naturally gluten-free! @windstonefarms peanut butter packets are now available at your local @walmart. Make sure to pick some up, and check out our stories for a special offer from Ibotta! What will you put #WindstoneFarmsPB on?

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger, the first thing they always ask me is what a typical day looks like. #sponsored My answer usually includes one or more of the following words: crazy, busy, hectic, long and almost always includes either my laptop or my phone, in my face. By the end of the day, my eyeballs are exhausted and I can’t wait to get to sleep (as soon as I check my phone one last time). So at the risk of sounding vague and having people believe that I am just playing around on social media all day long, I thought it would be fun to show you what a day in the life of this super mom blogger is like…. Summer edition (because when the girls are in school, it’s a lot more hectic) as well as how I help my eyes filter blue light, thanks to @quantumnatural.

AD: Back-to-school time is a favorite in our house. I'm excited to get back to the daily peace and quiet, and the girls are excited to get back to their friends! While our excitement lies in very different places, one thing we can always agree on is that it's super fun to shop for back-to-school supplies. Especially when we can do it from the comfort of our own home! After going to multiple stores last year and not being able to find a school approved backpack for Lucia, this year, we made the smart move and got it (and her wireless headphones) on @eBay. They offer a money back gurantee, FREE shipping, save your gas ⛽️ and time ⏰ and do your back-to-school shopping on eBay this year! #eBayBackToSchool #HappeningOnEBay #eBay https://lnk2.io/wytbcWl

Remembering My Childhood with Vicks VapoRub

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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    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.
